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!
