I don’t know that I have ever been as busy as I was the last week of my life. Interestingly, I was also very happy. I love how those too things tend to go together. I’m still not functioning at 100%, but I’m feeling much better. I’d really like my voice back all the way, but at least I can talk now.
Here’s the abridged version of my week (and a little). My head receptionist went on indefinite leave on Wednesday. She’s the only other full-time support staff person where I work…which means that I now have to open and close and that I’m more short-staffed than I already was. It’s interesting as I’ve gotten older how I’ve grown up. Honestly, as an undergrad working at BYU I was kind of flakey at times, but now being flakey just isn’t an option and not just because I don’t have someone there to cover me, but because it just isn’t.
I digress. Anyway, I lost Anna and I was already down one part-time person and another part-time person is out of the country until next week…so, in the morning hours I am doing alone what four of us are usually doing. I have to say that I did a pretty good job, though (with a little overtime). The other thing that happened this week is that I started classes. Back to school I go…and I love it this time around (or so far). I’m taking a course in literature (replacing a really bad grade), accounting and a consulting class where we work on real problems with real corporations. I don’t know why I didn’t take accounting as an undergrad because I love it. I am my father’s daughter.
And I’m totally off my training schedule because I’ve been so sick, but today I was determined to get back on it…so I ran seven miles. I hate getting older. My body is not what it used to be. I hurt in places I didn’t used to know could hurt. Aging is not fun, and I’m only 29!!!
So, there’s the travel log of my week. Of course I have commentaries, but they will have to wait for another day. Oh, and the pics on here don’t go with the entry…they’re from Christmas…but I struggle to get pictures downloaded. And yes, I’m still angry that I spent so much money on a camera that I gave to the ex-fiance and I still have my ginormous digital that I purchased five years ago. Oh, the stupid things we do when we think we’re in love.
