I had all the best plans, but so far Monday is a fail.  :P

 

I was up all night working on a project to send out this morning.  It was way harder than I expected, but I finally got it done around 10am.  I had told my boss about an issue (not my fault) and she decided we should run it by the client and his lawyer before sending the project out to the team (2 dozen people).  Well you can guess how that went.  Change this, change that.  Cancel the call.  Dag flip it, I was hoping to be napping by now, but no-o-o.

 

On the positive side, no big group conference call this afternoon.  On the negative side, no rest for the weary, lots more back-and-forth, and I'll be expected to work all evening and guilted for every minute I spend with my kids.  Forget tackling my mega to-do list that I assembled last night.  :/

 

So ... I dunno, I'm not in a very positive mood, but I still hope to get some things done.  Send out some more work, make some appointments, pay some bills and stuff.  Laundry and maybe a little house cleaning.  The kids have gymnastics tonight, hopefully we make it there ....

School has not been much success here today so far. Sigh. 

Hours more to do before I can get away to the grocery.

 

 

 

Dd's laundry is done. (by her)

Dishwasher is running. 

Punted RA because they were constantly interrupting (for not-the-story things).

Called the dentist.

Sent some emails.

 

Next up, history with ds.

Then check on dd and onto meal planning and grocery shopping.

kitchen - dishwasher rebooted

 

laundry - one load folded and put away

 

paperwork - today's Anatomy and Physiology printed out.

Bills sorted by due date.  Those that can be put off to next pay day have been set aside.

 

Next - kitchen - laundry - paperwork round ready to go.  On days like today when I'm battling stress, having this round robin helps me to not feel quite so overwhelmed because all I  have to focus on is the round at hand.

Today has not been a banner day for me. It's almost 2:30 and all I've gotten done are horse chores, one load of laundry, and a trip to the post office. I think lack of sleep is catching up with me...plus, my anxiety is through the roof for some reason.  :glare:

 

Still have lots of laundry to deal with, a floor that badly needs vacuuming, and my kitchen to clean.

 

On the plus side, I realized that we have enough leftovers from the past two nights that I don't have to cook dinner.

Well, I slept for a few hours.  I delayed sending out the next version of the report because I just could not think any more.  I am definitely past my prime as far as all-nighters go.  I do feel better now - after a bit of sleep, I was able to think more clearly about the changes that were needed and get 'em done quickly.  The report will come back for more changes, but I'm for moving on at the present.  :)

 

Now to get some loan servicing done before my clients' work days end.

Okay, I have made a little progress. Just found out that there will be workers here tomorrow measuring up for the flooring, so that inspired me to get off my rear and make the house look presentable.

 

I swept up some fur tumbleweeds and cleaned and mopped the kitchen.

 

Plants have been watered and the coffee maker is clean.

 

The second load of hay is in the steamer and grain buckets are washed.

 

I still need to clean up a few clutter piles, do some more laundry, make chicken and rice for my sick pup, and vacuum upstairs. Plus my usual animal chores.

 

Ds has a golf lesson in half an hour.
