Work is never-ending these days… if it’s not a 300+ question RFI to answer, it’s a training module, customer visit, demo to do… I’m so overloaded. Have been since the beginning of the year. I have a list of to-do’s that is two miles long, and a few things on the list are “reach out to FreeBird”.. I know, pathetic.
I did discuss this with my manager… it’s not going to ‘end’ (it never really does end does it?) until after April 24th. so I’m stuck working nights and weekends, along with my days, for another month. Definitely makes the head hunter offers in my inbox seem appealing.
But tonight, I should be working. Well, I am working, just taking a short break to have a pity party with my blog friends. I’m not working – I’m writing to you.. and drinking wine (makes my answers/responses to questions MUCH MORE interesting if I do say so myself).. 😉
So in the last week, I’ve had the great pleasure of putting a smile on my moms face. Doesn’t matter that I did it, just matters that it happened. Makes me feel good… I love being able to do it, and she is the most deserving of anyone on this planet as far as I can tell. Put up with me, my three sisters, a plethora of bad decisions and grandkids…. and really, all it takes is simple pleasures to put a smile on this womans face. Gotta love it. Putting a smile on her face makes me smile – and makes everyone else around me happy – from the cashier at the grocery store to the teller at the bank… (not to mention ATrain!).
Other simple pleasures as of late are:
- feeding my cats (boy do they love food, and they love folks who feed them.. so yep, they love me!!!)
- Working out – just trying to keep extra lb’s off …
- sleep – ambien has been a good friend to me…
With that said, I have 287 more questions to answer… wish me luck, I need it. Its due by EOD Thursday…. yes, this Thursday. I know. Rediculai.
