Mistress Marilyn's POV
No shit, Tempus Fugit!
And I love events because?

Seven meetings today, starting with the personnel committee at 7:30. I wanted to blow my brains out before it was over. I spent 15 minutes trying to escape to Starbucks, then finally made it in time for staff meeting at 9:00. Then an events team meeting that was nothing short of a trainwreck. Jenny was out after a gum transplant yesterday afternoon, and I felt sorry for the young woman trying to run the meeting. I was part of the problem, not the solution.

A personnel review at noon (good Hawaiian food, though), and then a long insurance seminar from our guy who was in town, interrupted by a meeting with a Vaudeville-style entertainer who will put together a review for next year's Centennial Ball (I hope). Then my boss stopped by to add to the angst, before a committee guy who takes care of radios 'dropped in' to talk about this year's order. (I admit I precipitated that by sending him an email. His time is a little easier than mine.)

Then Jenny and I met to regurgitate everything that happened all day that she missed, and I researched the three prescriptions she's taking for her gum transplant (a graft of donor tissue, no less). At 29, it's a little early for her to have to go through this procedure, and she was definitely reeling.

Now I'm trying to get my 70+ emails down to the acceptable level (30 in my in-box -- I get close to a hundred a day). And I even have five voice mails to listen to.

I wouldn't feel stressed at all if I didn't have another five meetings in a row in the morning.

I'm making Friday a NO MEETING day, or I'll go crazy. It's way too early for this much intensity. I'm skipping the book club meeting where James Frey will be discussed, although I'm fascinated by all that drama. I'll get a full report tomorrow.

I'm going in with her to the PRFA office on Friday to do some scanning...

No meetings still means she works her ass off, though. (grin) But still!

At least maybe she'll be able to get some other work done.

I'm looking forward to coming in on Friday!

I'd love to get my at-home email down to 70 emails in the inbox!!! (Never will happen.) And I started to empty my PRFA email inbox last time I was there, but didn't do very well. (sigh)
