This and That

I'm watching Sunday Night Football. It's the Eagles at the Bears. I hope the Bears win, but I have my doubts. They're just not cutting it this season. Dang it.

Things, for the most part, are still going well at work. However, the one thing that is really the rock in my shoe - and other people's shoe - is my co-worker Mari. She has got some serious issues and it's really starting to interfere with work. She's still doing her job relatively well, but it's getting to the point where no one wants to work with her or deal with her. She and our manager, Candy, had a huge blowout Friday right at the end of the day. I was away from my desk, so I don't even know exactly what happened or what was said (or yelled). But I think that Mari is digging herself a hole that she's not going to be able to get her way out of. She was already on probation (the disciplinary kind, not the initial kind) before the incident on Friday, so I don't really know what will happen now. The only reason I want her to still be employed with us at this point is because it's going to be a huge hassle for us to have to take over her job and try to find someone else. But I think that might really be the best thing at this point - short term pain for long term gain.

Master and I are still struggling. Still trying, but still struggling. We do have an appointment one evening this week with a marriage counselor. I'm hopeful that it will help. And the bonus that comes with that is that my extended health benefits cover the first 12 hours of counseling for free, so we don't even have to pay for it at this point! I definitely appreciate that. I just hope it'll really help us move forward and grow closer.

In case I miss this later in the week (since it's not a holiday up here and I'll be working): Happy American Thanksgiving everyone!!
