So my work group stepped up a bit today and took me out to lunch and Ruth brought breakfast for the group to celebrate. So they aren't as bad, but I'm still a bit miffed. Apparently the group is not able to function socially without Ruth, and she's preggers and out quite a bit. But man, when she is here she can whip em' into shape. I also got a cookie bouquet today from my sister. Yum.
