Work today has not sucked. I have plenty to do to prevent boredom. I got to spend some time at the front desk playing Solitaire while covering for our receptionist's doctor's appointment. I got (literally) pulled into a meeting without warning by the Senior Vice President, and I was able to be knowledgable and helpful and to accept a few tasks graciously.
And tomorrow I get to go arts and crafts supply shopping! During work! No one else wanted to take responsibility for buying supplies and cutting and pasting decorations for the calendar/bulletin board for the month of November. They got really excited when I indicated that it was something that I might be willing to do. I'm pleased.
