Mistress Marilyn's POV
No shit, Tempus Fugit!
Time Flies When You're Working Your Ass Off! 
13th-Nov-2010 01:56 am
This week has flown by, full of mostly work and more work.

Today ended up being 14 and a half hours, with two breaks: A short walk to Starbucks and one trip to the bathroom. I just stuck to it tonight until I finished ten months of credit card statements and receipts, coding every line. I also got the last of the IT bills for the fiscal year re-classified. No, I didn't get my expense report done, but the receipts are all in order, ready to be entered (which will take another hour or two).

I got the Facebook page prepared for my sister city group; tomorrow we have a half-day board retreat, and it will be good to have some things to report. Charlie's gotten work done on the website and set up the Twitter and YouTube accounts.

I managed to get the 2011 payroll nearly finished, the largest part of the Admin budget, even though I haven't even started my events budgets. I didn't get any of my four personnel reviews scheduled, much less written. My own review ended up postponed, because Jeff had to take his wife to the doctor again. Hopefully she'll be cleared to drive. Next week he's on his way to Orlando for the Int'l Association of Amusement Parks & Attractions expo, so he'll be out all but a day and a half. Yeesh! I have to admit he was *very* grateful for how supportive I've been of his absences and issues. And he was congratulatory of my success at getting the route of our 2012 Rock'n'Roll Half-Marathon approved by all the City agencies.

If I ever get a review, it had better be a good one.

I'm about to swallow myself, I'm yawning so hard. But I did vote in three Last Author Standing communities and manage to write this entry. So color me happy. Aside from the board retreat tomorrow, I am *not* going to work this weekend! (My 80% FTE was 46 hours this week . . .)

Beddie-bye time!

You've been AMAZING this week!

You know, if you listed EVERYTHING you've done, it would boggle the mind. You accomplish more in any one day than four or five people combined do in two (not joking). I am in awe, just so you know. (Always have been.)

I hope I'm not adding to that by getting you mixed up in the Roosevelt thing... (???) Hopefully most of that work will fall on me, not you. (But as you ARE the Communications expert... well... heh...)

I felt so bad as it got later and later -- and you were clearly exhausted and fed up (though still plugging away).

We'll have to try and do something just fun this weekend. Ya think?

It sounds like you got a tone done, good for you. I just don't think I could do it.

"I'm about to swallow myself" I've never hear this before, so cute!

Well I don't think you went back to the office after this killer day. I know you had the retreat and I hope it went well.What I really want now is for you not to work any day of your vacation next week. That would be wonderful.

You amaze me with all of the work that you do. I am glad that Jeff appreciates you as I know this has been tough for him with his wife. He also has lots of travel with his position, but I think he enjoys it for the most part.

It is difficult to be away from his family for sure, but it also may be the way he survives the marriage. I don't understand relationships well enough to know.

You have been great keeping up with the Last Author Standing and working on your stories. When is our group going to start again. I really do miss it and I have not been writing much at all. Just reading a lot.
