Busy, busy, busy! It’s been busy at work the last few days with no immediate end in sight, although my meeting schedule is a bit more forgiving tomorrow, with only 3 hours of meetings, and then, finally! a long weekend!
I was beat when I headed home last night, and when I turned into my driveway, I got my car stuck in the snow, which I figured was soft and which I could ignore. I then had to spent 10 minutes digging around my tires so I could back out. I parked on the street. I’ll probably do the same. There is no way I am going to try and shovel what is essentially a several inch thick block of ice. It’ll warm up and melt eventually. In the meantime, there is always the street.
Tired as I was, I was also incredibly embarrassed by this, but fortunately none of my neighbors saw what was essentially a rookie mistake on my part. I blame it on being tired, but I could just as easily blame it on being lazy since I know better. But I got my desserts. I don’t like leaving my car on the street and last night my dreams were filled with anxiety because of it. I dreamed that I took a bus trip and after getting of the bus, realized I forgot my suitcase on the bus, but the bus was nowhere to be found. Arrgh!
Some would say I’m juggling at work; others might describe it as treading water. I’m working on no less than 5 projects, three of which I have fairly substantial involvement in. I’m barely staying afloat. It’s not as bad as it used to be. It used to be that I would work all night and all weekend and every waking moment to try and stay ahead. Now I just think about doing it, but eventually come to my senses. Work is still work. I try not to think about it when I leave the office.
