That only explains SOME of it.

The new job is VERY BUSY and I have a lot to learn in a very short time period. This week, I had to stop in the middle of everything and take my elderly neighbor to the airport. I hussled her outta there in record time, just so I could finish the accounting schtuff before 1. Whew. That was also a nightmare, as we all know I'm not number-friendly.

Meetings Monday and Friday, with training involved. Interesting, but all confidential. I have more training to do next week, which involves training animals :) :D I can't wait for that. :) Still, my tasks - as set forth under my job description - keep me beyond busy. I haven't had one break since I've worked there, and taken no lunches. The learning curve is one thing; heavy work load is another. Although the boss is stressed about training too many people at once, some of that spills over into my arena, too. But I can't be stressed. I'm going to start Ohhmming in the middle of the day or something. Still - I love the nature of this job and am going to stick with it.

Have been keeping up with high school friends at an alarming rate lately. It's funny how I went so long without talking with them and now, making plans with 'em. They've all changed so drastically, with the exception of me and two others (that I've seen, anyway), that I'll need to see name tags to even try to remember. Yikes.

The spawnlette is snippy this morning, but after our five-hour talk last night, what should I expect? I wanted to go get a manicure/pedicure for the therapeutic benefits only, but she absolutely refuses to go. Argh! She also refuses to go to the store with me, so we're kinda stuck. Greaaaaaaaaaat. She has a TON of homework to do, so I'm going to leave her alone. My sis-in-law invited us to go to her church tomorrow for a big lunch, and my girlfriend from grammar school invited me to Friends of Dogs and Cats day around the same time. Now I've gotta decide what to do, as I really would like to do both. The latter could help with my job, so I've called the boss and left a message.

I'm too tired to update with details (which I know was the former allure of this journal for everyone else) so these cliff notes will have to suffice. Just know that all the traffic-crazy, dinner-decidin', psychotic-actin' mens, freakish-things are still going on. I just don't have time to list 'em.

The end.

Oh, it sucks, since I fall asleep working on it every night. I'm boring ME to death with it, and I still want to kill my main character desperately. lol

Your job sounds crazy and insane right now, but hopefully it will eventually slow down! The animals part sounds fun at least!

The learning curve - particularly since I wear so many hats - is going to take a little time. The nature of the business is why I took the job :) :D I hope this is the "one". :> :)

Ordinarily, I would prefer them, too. However, I do have a way with words when I put my mind to it enough to make my entries /interesting/. I've just been WAY neglectful over the past year or so to the point of not wanting to read MYSELF. lol :>

I agree. Hey, did you get that thousand bucks sorted in the end?

Actually, I wasn't $1,000 off in the area I originally thought, but a couple of hundred in another area (which I think is even worse). I did zero out, but it took more time than it should've. =/ It's a done thing, though, so I'm glad that's all over with for this month.

Words.

Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
