got a really good pep talk from my supervisor today...she's such a psychology person, in the best way. really knows how to be motivating without being over-the-top about it. i was feeling a little discouraged about work, since recruitment is being annoying and there are lots of little things that keep going wrong...and i know that it's to be expected, and these things kinda work themselves out, but it was bringing both me and the study coordinator down. and so our supervisor, who's the senior manager on all this, sat us down and talked to us and we were both re-energized and much happier about it all. so that's good.
setup yesterday went very late, 'cause the subject came to the hospital an hour and a half late. blah. today should be better, though, but i'm still missing dance. for the third week in a row. meh. annoyance, but what can i do?
went to the exploratorium with a whole lot of techie people on sunday, which was pretty awesome. it was quite amusing to watch them get engrossed by minute details of exhibits. much fun. sunday was also the birthday brunch for my little niece! she's such a doll! my sister and her husband dressed the baby up in a puffy little dress and put a bow on her head, and it was highly adorable. my older niece had a good time, too, and looked so pretty! so a good day.
saturday was mad cleaning day, because my parents visited my appartment. heh. but it went ok, and we went out to a nice dinner and all.
grandpa update: he varies from day to day. he's still in the rehab place, and some days he's better and some days he's worse. he's swallowing now, so we can feed him, but his parkinson's is giving him a lot of issues and he's pretty confused about stuff. but i'm trying to be hopeful, even when it's difficult.
everything's good with the boy, which makes me happy. it's nice to feel things getting more and more comfortable, you know? i'm excited for him with his job stuff, and just excited in general. good times.
on a random note, i really want to start an anonymous blog (meaning, not associated with me at all) and see if i can get readership on it, as a kind of experiment. i may even do it. heh. it just seems like it would be fun. i mean, how do anonymous bloggers get readers? it's easier on lj, with the communities and all. you can comment or post in a community, and people find out who you are, but how do you do it on a site like blogger, that doesn't have the same community feature? in any case, i might give it a try, branch away from lj a bit. we'll see.
ok, that's all...back to work.
