The weekend's here! Yay! Even thought I'm not working, it's still a weekend for me. I don't have to worry about missing a phone call, and pretty much every business I'm trying to get work in is down for the weekend.
Yesterday was nuts. I drove the wife to work and once I got home my head was just pounding. I lay down for 45 minutes and when I woke up, I noticed I had missed a call on my cell... Some tech company called me. Was it for work? I don't know, they never did leave a message. That sucked.
I spent a little time on the computer, writing and checking around, and then I had to run out and do errands for the wife, and meet up with a friend for lunch. After that, I finally got back to the house and my head was hurting again and I was exhausted. I tried to rest a little bit. After 15 mins, I couldn't fall asleep, so I checked my mail.
Good news - I finally got my Record of Employment. This whole EI thing has been pretty simple so far. Not what I expected. I once almost applied for EI back in '98 but the whole thing was so overwhelming I never did collect anything. I still haven't gotten anything from EI in the way of money, but we'll see how it goes. I've heard enough horror stories to be a little wary of depending on it. As it was, I got my ROE so I headed down to the service Canada office, in 5 minutes I had it handed in and was on my way to Safeway to get groceries for supper.
I was rather surprised it was that quick and painless.
It may not sound like I did much yesterday, but it seems driving in Calgary can eat up alot of productivity time in the day. I felt like I did far more on Thursday than I did yesterday.
Today's going to be nice though. We've already did house cleaning, and I also cleaned up the hard drive. Now I just have to get some writing done, rack my wine, and tonight I'm having a campfire with a few friends... A nice end to the week. See you Monday!
