Work did this thing where I got a sideways promotion because I turned down an official one. So today has already gone nutso because I was learning my new duties and everything, I mean *EVERYTHING*, went wrong.
Like we were setting up a new hire and the people who did all of the prep work got her name wrong. She had the wrong emails set up and the wrong account names for stuff… “If you need me, call me!” was the note my predecessor left me.
I tell ya. Anyway, she’s set up now.
The rest of this weekend should be somewhat low-key, given that we’ve got Thanksgiving behind us and we’re in “listening to Holiday music” mode but not yet in “have Holiday parties” mode… but I did get my first holiday party invitation today. (The madness officially starts in a couple of weeks.)
Which means that this weekend is one of the last to stuff in errands like “go to Costco and get a million things” or “go to Petsmart and get a million things” and have a hope that the stores won’t be packed to the gills. Maybe only packed to the pectorals. So that’s what we’re doing this weekend. The pre-holiday non-holiday stuff. (And, oh jeez, there’s another emergency. Why do they always happen on Friday?)
So… what’s on your docket?
