Well...onto the next project. We have to develop a chewable tablet for kids. We have our preliminary flavors picked out: pineapple, lemonade, mango, and fruit punch. I want to combine flavors together to make something really good. I honestly hope this one works better than our bone broth project. It should, since we're using isomalt as part of the base formula so it'll be sweet. Wish us luck!

Grr. I want to purchase DEM software for work to simulate mixing scenarios with our products. All of them cost so damn much money that it's not even worth looking into them...plus we'd need to upgrade our computer hardware to even run it. And we'd have to buy CAD software to draw the bins we mix in. I was so hopeful it would be a cool tool for us to use, but it's looking like not so much.

Okay, I'm a little freaked out. I had to go on site to a client's location a few weeks ago, and today when I talked to him on the phone he's sick. He swears up and down it's not Covid, it's just the 'regular flu' but shit, man. That still worries me. Think I might stay (even further) away from people for a while, just to be safe.

Grants submitted right before the deadline. Ugh, I don't know how I feel about them. Hope it was at least somewhat decent. I only had about week to do it as well as working on other things. My procrastination and perfectionism sabotage me quite often.

Hey when you get an email with a PDF attached that has an instruction sheet with an address, and a two page tax form... and the email says , "Please print, sign & mail this form prior to the end of this month." .. What do you suppose that means you're supposed to do with it? What's that? Don't bother to open the PDF at all? Like, EVERY QUARTER since second quarter of 2018? OMG people! I love doing payroll and sales taxes. I love math and number puzzles and I LOVE the work I do at my job. I don't even mind 15 pages of instructions for a form that should take ten minutes to fill out, not when there are 10 new lines on the form. But this babysitting and hand-holding fucking SUCKS. You're an adult. I shouldn't have to explain to you that when the email says PRINT AND SIGN AND MAIL this form.. that maybe you should .. yanno.. print the fucking form, sign it, and mail it. Jesus. I'm having a day, folks.

Does there happen to be anyone else here that works in payroll and is ready to throw the federal government and their fucking worksheet 1 out the window? 15 page instructions for the fucking 941 form? WHAT? What're they tryna do to me? Fucking COVID-19.

I'm not going to take the coffee position. Their non-policy for Covid was a deal breaker not to mention working in close quarters with others not wearing masks. With cases rising in our County, I am not going to put my health at risk for unnecessarily.

Well guys, our bone broth chocolate protein shake was a bust with the tasting panel. They said it was as good as it probably could have been, but even that was not what they had "envisioned" for the product. To be fair, it was insanely hard to get powdered bone broth fortified with bitter alpha lipoic acid and a ton of very bitter B-vitamins taste very good when you can't use sugar or MSG and have to use only a handful of select flavors that are organic/all natural. I'm bummed, but my boss thought our product was really good. Maybe they'll reconsider letting us use sugar and we'll revive it someday.

I feel so awkward. Our building had the water shut off on Friday so our boss let me and my CW work from home. We like, NEVER get to do that so we were pretty happy with that plan. But my CW decided she was only going to work 3 hours and she TOLD ME she wasn't going to finish an important document we needed to have done for Monday. She is still on her probation and I'm wondering if I should tell our boss. She really is a slacker and claims she gets permission to do all this stuff because she has a toddler at home.

I did it. I reported my employer to osha. The hospital I work for moved the administrative workers into an old, refurbished factory. It looks nice, but it's like putting lipstick on a pig. So many of us have started experiencing respiratory problems because of this weird black dust that's everywhere. Yesterday, I started having audible wheezes. I scheduled ANOTHER doctor's appointment and then filed an informal complaint with osha. They keep telling us everything is up to code. We'll see, assholes.
