    Hope hubby feels better soon. Boyfriend got a tummy thing too, lots of trips to the bathroom. I told him to try a couple capsules of grapefruit seed extract, which is supposed to help with this kind of thing. I'll let you know if it helps. (originally, I got it for yeast maintenance, but it can help with other "bugs" too, from what I've read)

    Boss sounds like a jerk, at least today. I hope he apologizes to you and you feel better soon. Getting the blame for shit that's not in your control is really frustrating.

    You look so much better! and I'm sure you feel better too! Good job!

    Sorry hubby is sick today.......... but WOO HOO on the fb comment and his new appreciation for you!

    Boss........... UGH! Mine would do the same thing. Jump the gun and go ballistic before having all the facts. But - he wouldn't bother to say he's sorry afterwards. Good thing he's more of a friend than a boss or I wouldn't still be working for him. (he's my best friends brother, and I've known him for 40 years!)

    Well, my boss hasn't apologized yet... could be because he's busy (he's at a conference) or it could be because he somehow still blames me even though his colleague took my side and said that it wasn't my fault, that he himself also confirmed the boss's reservation upon his own check-in to the same hotel and at that time, the room was still available, but became unavailable later. We'll see how it all shakes out... I understand his frustration as it was nearly 2 am and he was looking for a hotel instead of sleeping in preparation for the events to occur starting at 8, but this wasn't my fault and I'm upset that he confronted me like that, while angry, and through email before knowing all the facts.

    I have finally finished a great majority of the coursework due for tonight. A classmate and I have to give a presentation on the readings for this week. 3 chapters that total up to be like 80 or so pages of material. We had to read the material, draft an outline to hand out to the class, and then have to present the material for discussion during class tonight. It's nothing major as far as assignments go b/c we've all been in class with each other from the start of our grad programs. Grad classes are relatively small - 15 or so people - and over the years/semesters/terms, you begin to know each other pretty well and these presenations turn into more of a talk amongst friends than the formal type of presentation you might be imagining.

    Now I just have to write a paper on the same reading.

    Ok, paper is done. I am officially ready for class tonight... Ahhh... that's nice. Done at 3 instead of rushing at 5. lol I really need to learn how to get work done sooner instead of waiting until the last minute to start the assignment... but after 14 years of college (off and on, not 14 years continuously) that's how I've ALWAYS done it and with only 2 semesters left, I doubt that'll change at this point...

    I'm IN! I so wish I could host a grokfeast for all my wonderful friends here! I would LOVE to have that $1500 gift card. Maybe I'll ask my sister-in-law if she wants to co-host and then share the prize with her if we win. That would be SO cool! We could do it in my back yard (which is HUGE and would be very accommodating to any form of activity - flag football, frisbee, etc. When we could do it would be the question... probably this Sunday or the following. I might ask her if she wants to.

    Interesting how everyone made it a point to acknowledge that the COL's hotel arrangements got jacked, but have failed to acknowledge that it was the hotel's fault... with the exception of one person in the office. Said person even brought it up to the COL a few minutes ago on the phone, but listening to this end of the conversation it sounds like the COL is downplaying it and illustrating that I still screwed up somehow, even though this totally wasn't my fault... I'm so not pleased by this... but I will wait til said person gets off the phone before I let myself get angry. B/c I don't have all the facts yet.

    I would suggest writing a very respectful email (write it in a word processor) to your boss, detailing the situation. Let it sit overnight or more, then edit all the emotions out of it. Let it sit a bit more and then decide whether it's a good idea to copy it into your email and send it. Even if it never gets sent, it can be a really good emotional release. I do this with my husband sometimes. He never sees most of them, but they have prevented me from blowing up at him. (Haven't needed to do that in quite a long time, hallelujah!). The ones I have sent have usually produced good results, because I've had time to consider them in different frames of mind.

    Thanks Judg. The fact of the matter is that I did nothing wrong. Brad keeps telling me to let it go b/c I didn't nothing wrong, what happened was out of my control and to stop stressing about it. I guess all I want is for him to send an email back in response to his colleague's email that says "I stand corrected". That is all... no apologies needed. Just acknowledgement of the facts as they are, not as they were preceived...

    The email he sent chewing my ass went to three people in this office, two people in the colleague's office and someone erroneously with the same last name as my supervisor. So 6 people saw the email where he chewed my ass for something I didn't do. His colleague sent his response to all the same people, stating that it wasn't my fault, that the hotel screwed up, etc, so at least I can save a little bit of face that way, but the boss hasn't admitted yet that he was wrong in his assumptions and I feel he needs to address that as publicly as he accused me of fucking up.

    Last week, he went on a whirlwind last minute trip to DC. Found out Tuesday that he needed to fly Wednesday. Somehow, either I gave the wrong dates or the girl who made the reservation selected the wrong dates (she was new and training), or something got fubared b/c the reservations were made for 4-5 instead of 5-6. This is odd to me b/c the reservation my boss took was a reservation originally made for someone else for 5-6 - all we did was change the name on the reservation. The hotel new the dates of the event b/c they were hosting it, so I don't think the original reservation was wrong, but it could have been... either way, the dates were wrong and I didn't catch it before he left... luckily, when he checked in, they had a room available, gave him the same rate, etc, but it wasn't right.... I don't know what happened to the trip to DC... I have no defense to that accept to assume I screwed up and admit that I screwed up by not checking the dates when the confirmation email came through...

    Anyhow, I think that incident, coupled with his late night arrival at Bragg to no hotel room was enough to make him blow a gasket... but he did it publicly and when it turned out to NOT be my fault, he didn't retract his ass chewing publicly. I think THAT'S what has me so upset. That it was public and he hasn't admitted that he was wrong.

    I still have to talk to my supervisor to ask how the conversation went.
