It is possible ...

I have over estimated, over committed, and under budgeted my ability to get things done in a timely matter.

In fact - I am behind even as I type this. But I will give you a brief update:

Friday day - get disconnected while trying to make flight plans to Memphis THREE TIMES!! End up booking flight that displeases GM to use up flight credit that will expire otherwise. After work - out for drinks to say goodbye to our way cool receptionist. (she who has bees tattooed on her boobs so she could say she had "boo-bees")

Saturday - work out at the gym, go to the Habitat Re-use store, bought a faucet, go to the hardware store, buy additional plumbing items to accompany said appliance. Come home, do laundry, go grocery shopping, cook dinner for friend who helped me install the faucet. Stay up WAY too late talking and laughing - but feel as if I've made two new friends.

Sunday - woke up at 5:00 am, because I hadn't worked on the graphics for that morning's service, at anytime during the week. Discover the Director of Music hadn't published the Order of Worship (which is why I hadn't worked on graphics) ... so tried to "make do" - which end up looking like "do-do". End result a "oh-oh" attitude from Mit - and early departure from church. Came home, ate lunch - laid down - woke up three and a half hours later. Still too tired to contemplate making soup for the "souper-bowl" cook-off. Bailed on party, worked on homework, watched halftime show, went to bed at 8:30 pm.

Monday - So tired, cannot get out of bed to work out. (So, another Saturday workout looms in my future. *sigh*.) Contemplate skipping work altogether, but realize GM is on vacation and we have no receptionist. Can't leave staff unattended, so drag body out of bed. Almost late for carpool. Arrive at work and find out hotel for one stretch of the EU trip has no vacancies. Get bogged down in minutia of a data problem, make no headway at work. Come home, cook dinner, do more homework, but still fail to complete all of assignment; find acceptable hotel replacement.

Tuesday - Continue to work on problem that won't resolve itself at work. Wish I could fly to Houston, TX and Greenville, SC to resolve problem. Fail to finish homework at lunch. Fuss with numbers that won't add up for a customer. Curse rigidity of arithmetic and wish "Accrual" and "Auditors" would be satisfied with a good story and pretty words. Go to class. Disagree internally (as in Mit kept her big mouth shut) with a lot of what is said in critique process (of classmates work) - and feel as if I will never understand "the authors intention" and wonder how I ever fell in love with reading. Also wonder if there are gaping chasms between what I've been reading all these years and what the authors have been writing. Come home, write this, look at clock - and realize I'm over time AGAIN. *sigh*
