Hello Friday, my old friend...

TGIF ad infinitum.

WORK: the project is mostly ironed out. I have taken a deep breath and tried to exhale all my frustration and annoyance. I have no control over other people and their willingness (or unwillingness) to try and understand how things work. The chips have fallen and the aftermath is what it is.

Yesterday, on a project call, I calmly told the liaison for the project that her new changes could not be incorporated, if she wanted it released on time, so sorry. Also, even if we release on time, the changes will require a new intake that we will submit to the vendor for pricing, as the old project is now completed and closed, thanks very much.

HOUSE: We got notice that they are doing the upstairs carpets next week. Of course - since I am going AWAY OUT OF TOWN this weekend, which meant last night and tonight is scrambling trying to get walls patched up so the kids can paint their rooms this weekend and they have time to dry before the new carpets go in. YARGH. Not the worst scenario, and I'm sure glad they didn't wait till this evening at 4pm to post the notice, but I'd thought they would be at least another week. It's just a little tighter than I like.

This is what the kid's rooms look like now. It's amazing how many pin hole, nicks and scratches you get on the walls over the course of almost two decades.







WEEKEND: Holy cow. Mini cruise tomorrow. I'm feeling seriously extravagant. I've always felt like cruises are something that only rich people can do, and that I would never, ever be able to afford something like that. It's still mind bogglingly expensive, but when I broke it down and compared it to a traditional vacation, I guess it's not that crazy expensive compared to being in a hotel and paying airfare and meals.

So, flisties - what are you doing this weekend?

Nice! I'm going to Nashville for a work trip in a couple weeks, but that's all I ever do when I am there. I've never gone outside the city.

Take pics and share :)

I'm packing and sorting stuff to get rid of it for our move.

The walls are going to look great I'm sure.

Have a great time on your mini vacation!

I'm heading down to my parents' house this weekend for Mother's Day.

Have a wonderful time on your cruise.
