It’s Project Club Time!

Here’s last week’s post. I’ve been writing and went grocery shopping, but still haven’t made my appointments. I didn’t because I completely forgot about it, though, and not because I was deliberately putting it off, which makes me feel less guilty even though it’s just as bad.

This week I have no plans for the first time in quite a while, so my goal is to just relax and enjoy the lull.

    I ran three times!!! I did not write a damn word. 😦

    I’m quickly hurtling toward the busiest time of the year for me at work, so my goal in addition to running three times is to survive the next week of work. I’d prefer to not just survive it but also for my coworkers to not realize what a struggle it was for me. But really if I can make it through the week without crying at my desk or screaming at my boss about how much I hate the project I’m working on (I hate it SO SO MUCH), I’ll consider myself a professional success.

    I have 14 to do list items that I would like to finish by Sunday afternoon.

    There are 5 other things that need to get done soon, but if they get pushed into next week, I’m not going to beat myself up about not finishing them.

    Something I did not add to my list because I have already put it off for two weeks:

    • Ugh, the bank!! *shakes fist at the sky*

      You guys, I don’t know how it happened, but I already finished FOUR of my fourteen list items, AND I cleaned out my car, which wasn’t even on my list! I’m even ignoring my usual OCD instincts.

      Bizarro world!

    I have done absolutely no unpacking or organizing because a) I am lazy, and b) work is busy and I have to stay late pretty much every day and all I want to do when I get home is drink wine straight from the bottle.

    This is not related to projects but I feel the need to share that a birthday card was being passed around today for my sister’s douchebag ex-boyfriend but I managed to not write “Crappy birthday assface, I want to strangle you with my bare hands!” I just wrote “Happy birthday!” and my name while everybody else included personal notes so he at least knows what I’m thinking.

      “All is forgiven!”

      • catweazle says:

        NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I mean he should also know where he stands because we’ve awkwardly run into each other in the kitchen twice this week and both times I gave him the tiniest shittiest most dead-eyed smile in response to his “Hey!” and he looked slightly scared.

        • catweazle says:

          What I want most is to know that he knows that I could have prevented him from getting hired on full time when his contract ended but chose not to because I am not as shitty of a person as he is. And then for him to quit/get fired so I can tell him off like I’ve been itching to all this time.

    I met a friend for a drink last night and this morning I discovered I left the book I’m reading on the table at the place. So my project on lunchbreak is to go there and see if the busboy put it in some kind of lost and found for me. Possibly it is gone forever. Tonight, I would like to watch movies to review for you lot, but I have too much other junk to handle, aggravated by how busy work is this week. I don’t know if I have ever complained to you guys about my job, but basically, my job is to clean up after other people. Evidently their job is to fuck up constantly.

    I guess you can file this under career goals, but it’s really just an opportunity to air out my work grievances.

    One of my coworkers is leaving at the end of this week, which means I will be taking some of her work load. I wish her the best, but I’m ending up with a bunch of her administrative work, e.g. keeping track of people’s time, cleaning up documents, checking to see if people have completed checklists. I understand that someone’s gotta take over her work, and I’m not opposed to do some administrative tasks, but at this point it’s become well over 50% of what I do here. I’m not a secretary, and I feel like my talents are being wasted doing so much of this crap.

    Of course, right after I get assigned all of this, I run into the director of my division. He thanked me for my contribution on a big project my department just finished, and told me he wanted to sit down with me sometime in the next few weeks and talk about my career interests and how I can maybe move towards doing that kind of work in the future. He also gave me a bigger office, which is awesome, but I think it had more to do with reorganizing people in this building. Either way, I’ll take it.

    After some consideration, I think I’m going to wait until July to make any big decisions. Hopefully someone else will be hired to fill the gap here, and maybe I’ll get to do more things I want. It will also give me time to take some planned trips without worry. If things don’t work out by then, I’ll have to reconsider, because I can’t keep doing these things for the rest of my life.

  6. I’m all done planning and done with doctors’ appointments. Now I’m just relaxing until the baby gets here Tuesday. Project almost complete!
