Alan got lost on the Air Train like I did, so he’s trying to make his way to the correct train to get to the Long Term Parking lot. I got lost on the Air Train, too, after I brought Mom to the airport for her flight home.
He should be here just around 7PM which makes me think I ought to be cooking dinner instead of waiting for him to get here. I was thinking of meatloaf but Angel kept me pretty much occupied through most of the afternoon, I barely had the chance to put the finishing touches on my Nilagang Baka. (Doing a separate blog post on that one..)
He’s been a good boy, actually. Sometimes he’s just being the kid that he is, so he is so full of energy and just all over the place. He constantly wants me by his side, and although he hasn’t been good taking his usual milk from the bottle, he has been nursing on demand. That doesn’t do well for my attempts to start weaning him, but I guess I can do it a little at a time. I’m thinking of starting to introduce whole milk in tandem with formula, and then shifting him to whole milk altogether.
Things were rather quiet on the work front because my boss lost her voice. So she just shot me a short email and then all email traffic stopped in her mailbox. The poor lady finally found an excuse to just rest. It wasn’t as quiet in the office, though, because a colleague told me about how those covering for me were griping about having to do my job. I guess they had forgotten my rank among the admins in the department, and how they would still be the ones covering my post no matter what the situation was since their bosses were under my boss.
The thing is the boss wasn’t even there, and the only thing they had to do at best was to answer my boss’s line. I really can’t do anything about their griping because there are things I have to prioritize, and between pleasing them and taking care of the boss, taking care of the boss takes priority whether they give me flak or not.
It’s just so disappointing to hear them doing that because when I’m there, they can’t tell it to my face. I guess that’s the corporate world for you. They won’t be griping tomorrow because I’m going to work. Alan and I made a deal that he would be the one staying home tomorrow, so I can get some work done in the office.
Time to get dinner ready.. he must be hungry.
