Minutia and More
We got home from vacation to cold weather and rain. I'm of mixed minds on this: I'm soooo pleased that it didn't happen during vacation, but honestly -- isn't returning back to everyday life after vacation difficult enough? Why does God have to throw in rain and cold also?

I turned my heat on this evening when I got home from work. (and it's only september?!) I only tweaked it up a few degrees, but feeling that hot air come out of the vent sure felt nice.

At work I got a prize! Every month a couple of "Difference Maker" awards are given out. The award entails a gift bag with a balloon to be given to you by your executive (CIO in my case), a certificate, a leather portfolio, a couple of cute office supplies, and (here is the best part, especially since it's cold and rainy now) a parking space! My parking space will be labeled with my name, and it will be right in front of the building. I get to use it for the month of October.

It's a neat program, one that I didn't really know about previously since I'm new. (It's also kind of cool to have won it, since I'm new.) It defers lots of honor and recognition, you feel special for a month, and everybody knows you are special, but it doesn't require much in the way of financial investment.

The guys on the other side of the wall said they could feel the heat radiating from my embarrassed blush, alerting them to some sort of business award being bestowed. I was so pleased, but I turned bright red when embarrassed.

In other news, far less good news, I have decided to take the plunge and reduce the price on my house. If you are looking for anybody who wants the best little house in Royal Oak, and wants to spend under 120000, send them to me.

Now come up with something brilliant in January or February when it's really cold.

Wow, 3 bedrooms, semi-finished basement, landscaped, a garage and only $120k? I guess the market around there really sucks. I am happy that the Austin market has remained strong. A real estate agent tried to get me to sell my condo a couple of months back.
