Sadly, I have time to log at work.

May I rant for a moment bigbear.......( I will assume you say "yes" )

My work doesn't give me enough work to do. I have worked here 2.5 years and in that time I have formally in writing requested additional work twice and done so verbally several times as well.

Basically, I wanted to absorb the work of the 2nd caseworker who holds a similar position as me ( I asked for the work on occasions when the 2nd caseworker was leaving, I wasn't expecting them to can the guy for me ). The long and short of it, I was told no way, they will always have 2 caseworkers for this position. I work for the government so that should tell you something.

I am terribly efficient with MS Excel, the main platform I use to do my work, and thus I have even more free time on my hands then when I first started this job because I have completely streamlined it, eliminating all sorts of duplicate work.

I am ethically obligated (due to my work regulations) not to make money at work on non-work related things. So I can't do an internet business or free lance work (not that I have many other talents, lol ). So I basically have plenty of time to post on ABC and to read things that interest me. For example, I read the entire Federalist Papers while at work.

On a positive note, I also have used the extra time to do volunteer work (no ethical issues there). For example, I update the Westmoreland County Right to Life's webpage, I work as a pseudo-trustee for my church with its Caring Pastor, and I even edited articles for ABC for awhile....speaking of which, I should let Venom know I am available again. Basically, I try to keep busy with positive things.

Idle hands are the devil's workshop.

Yes, they are finally low by anyone's standards, but they are working, I'm losing fat and I feel great.

You work midnight shifts, sleep little sometimes, have a family to care for and you turn out sessions like this. I don't get impressed easily nor do I think praise should be given out lightly, but you my friend deserve it. Your journal inspires me more than anyone else's on this site.
Wow, what an incredibly kind thing to say, thanks Mike!

Believe me, when I finally post pictures, you will be happy I worked on my tan!
