Its Wednesday!

Well the week is almost half over and what a week it has been already and will be over the next few days.

We are in the end of our fiscal year, and are also going through a merger that becomes official October 1st. Do I need to say that my job is stressful right now, didn't think so. Not only have I been assigned an incredible amount of projects to do in the next week, but I also have to complete the transition of the data to the new formats.

Of course during all of this I have to go to the dentist, today, in about an hour.

I thought about changing my appointment since this week is bad, but then I decided its my health. I don't mind going to the dentist, its not my favorite thing. But it is something that I am doing for myself, to keep me healthy, and this is the time that I have to be healthy.

My work will wait for me, and the people that are screaming because they realized that the project they have been sitting on for the past four months is due at the end of next week will all have to wait a few hours more.

Just a word of advice to those who assign me projects at the last minute. When you forward me the message and it has the original request that was dated from July, don't expect me to drop everything to finish it, just sayin.

Have a great Wednesday everyone.

  1. I have been out of corporate America for 7 years now but it is good to know that nothing changes!

    My 9 year gets so frustrated with me because I make him do his assignments that night (sometimes they are due in 2 or 3 days) instead of waiting to the last minute. He is really really smart and really really lazy. I am hoping eventually it will become habit!

    Dentist - yuck - except I got myself a hottie dentist to help make me actually go ;)

  2. Funny how everybody expect that you can do their project or assignment just when they remember to tell you what they want to have done? Because the rest of your week you just sit there and wait for them to give you something to do? ;) Sounds very familiar, things have been crazy at work since july....
