Congrats to Katie & William

Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking together in the same direction.  ~Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Katie and William are engaged!  I missed the party.

I’m really not a heartless rogue – I can explain why I let work interfere with life – this one time…

I’ve been in the trenches.

It has been a rough couple of days at work because it’s getting down to the wire and I have more work than time.

I’m creating a new curriculum for a week and a half long new hire class.  The class begins Monday, the 25th, and I’m still writing the curriculum….  Oh God, oh God.

Realistically, I have about 3o more hours of work to do before it’s finished.  Guess what I’ll be doing this weekend?

I Left work tonight at 9:30.  Got to work at 8:30 this morning, after having left last night at 9:00, too.

It’s madness!  Today I spent 13 hours straight at my computer.  Well, no, that’s not entirely true – I did take a short break to pick up lunch at the Pollo Tropical (from the drive through) at 4:00 – ate most of it in my car.  (Curly fries fell on the floor in my new car, too.)  Oh, and I had rice, black beans, and chicken and guess what I did all evening?  Well, let’s just say, I didn’t have to go to the gas station to fill ‘er up.

Beans never sit well, but I love them.  If I could have kept going without lunch, I would have.  When my head felt like it was going crash down on my keyboard, I knew I had to eat!

Now I’m hungry again, darn it!

So, it’s back to work for most of tomorrow, and probably Sunday, too.

It’s not that I’m a bad time-manager (although time-management is an ongoing challenge), I simply agreed to this project because I wasn’t allowed to say no. The class is going to start whether I like it or not – so there ya go!

Anyway, because of work, I missed the engagement party.  I don’t usually put work before my life – I try to never do that, ever.  It’s important to have a work-life balance.  I’m generally pretty good at balancing that, I guess that’s why I’m feeling so guilty about missing the party that I hated so much to miss.

So, I want to send so much love to Katie and William.  Congratulations to you both!  Love you!
