(I promise I'm doing things other than writing fanfic and watching Mad Men. Seriously.)

Work's been a little odd. We had two servers leave this month -- one guy, Matt, who'd been with us ever since we opened, and his girlfriend, Veronica, who'd been there a year and a half. Three new people just got hired to take their place. So it's been a small adjustment period. I don't really enjoy training new people. I can be patient, and don't mind having to go through what they need to learn, but the general awkwardness, plus having to keep up on small talk for most of the evening, is the worst.

I'm also in the middle of writing the town visitor's guide for our chamber of commerce. It was due a couple weeks ago technically, but I was unhappy with the draft I came up with and needed to cut out quite a bit of nonsense from the version I was working off of, so I'm still grinding out new work as of this week. Hope to have that done soon. It's been frustrating, but at least I'm getting paid for it.

Last weekend I got to see [livejournal.com profile] dozmuffinxc and several of my old college friends/former professors for J's regency birthday tea at the O'Henry Hotel. We had an amazing time, and it was really lovely to visit with everyone again. There are pictures on facebook and on my phone. I'll edit this post later to put those up here if I can. :)

My cat Goldie is doing better. Thanks to everyone who commented on last week's post. I took him back to the vet for a checkup on Wednesday and the wound on his neck has been healing really well. His energy is up, and I think he's gained a tiny bit of weight, too. All good things.

I haven't really been keeping up with the Boston bombing news, apart from the day of the manhunt, when I got sucked back in. The desperate need of the networks to be the first with "breaking news" has made me beyond frustrated. Plus, every time I looked at the grisly pictures I just felt torn up, and I didn't even know anyone in the event. I got to a point where I just had to stop seeking out those things for my own mental health. So, most of the posts I've been reading about Boston have been of the "goodness of human nature" type -- Runner's World's website has featured plenty of those articles over the past few days.

I'm also glad to hear that my Texas friends are okay, given the plant explosion in West. Honestly, it's been one of those weeks where all of the terrible events have just mixed together in my mind. To quote The Onion: "Jesus, This Week."

I'm lurking around LJ and trying to catch up on previous posts/comments. Let me know if there's anything big I've somehow missed.

Hi! Yes, you have to watch getting too into theses news stories. Bailey's 10, and the random, senseless loss of an 8-year-old boy tore me up.

Ugh, changes at work are so draining! I understand that.

Chamber of commerce guide. Very cool.

Glad kitty is doing better. I need to back track and find your previous post. I'm a bit behind.

Ugh yes, the Onion article perfectly summed it up.

And on top of all of that I had a dear friend die on Tuesday morning. Yes, last week can SUCK IT.

I'm glad Goldie's doing better.

*hugs you*

I'm so glad you were able to come to tea and then down to C-town for visits! Next time you come, you'll have a bed all to yourself in my new place :)

It truly was one heck of a week. Part of me is sad that my birthday had to be a part of it, but at the same time, at least it left something to look forward to.
