Not Me! Monday


Finally!!!  Notice the lovely picture :)  It’s Not Me! Monday time again.  Head over to MckMama’s blog and see what everyone else did (not) do this week.

I did (not) finally get internet at my apartment.  I have (not) already lived here for three months and have just now signed up.  Internet at home will (not) get me blogging more.  I think.

Friday evening after a lovely dinner with friends, I did (not) bail on hanging out with them after dinner so I could go back to my place and watch Glee on Hulu.  I do (not) love Glee and would not spend a perfectly good Friday night watching episodes on the internet that will be there later.

Not Me! Monday

I did (not) think that I had the button corrected this week. I did (not) get a rude awakening upon hitting "post" and realize that it wasn't working after all :(

This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

This will (not) be a little catch-up post about my vacation which was (not) really, really fun! I did (not) spend a bunch of time with my sister and her kids. This did (not) include lots of cuddle time with Lynae, my newest neice who arrived 09/09/09. She is one of the most adorable babies ever! :)

The "Week of Wedding" at Disney was (not) amazing as well. I did (not) lose my camera charger while moving and was not able to take any pictures. I did (not) have a great time with all my long lost Florida friends at the wedding. Said friends did (not) repeatedly try to convince me to move back to Florida. They did (not) get me thinking that maybe I should look into it.

I do (not) have to pack up and go to DC again this week. I am (not) becoming an expert at packing just the neccessities for a week trip to DC. I do (not) know DC better than the neighborhood I moved to in July. I will (not) be staying in the world's smallest hotel room again because it's the closest hotel to the office that has availability. They do (not) charge $1 per square foot per night for the room.

Blogging does (not) get put on the back burner when I'm busy, so I hope things will slow down soon so I can post about the things I've promised.

Vacation and a Brick Wall

Yep - I went on vacation. For two weeks. I went back to visit my family in Florida including my new niece and attended a friend's wedding.
I got work calls on 8 different days while I was gone :(

And I came back to a harsh work reality. Not just an I've-been-gone-for-two-weeks-my-work-has-been-piling-up -while-I-was-gone reality, but a New-financial-systems-launch-this-week, Big-project-that-I-thought-I-was-finished-with-(twice)-needs-more-work, Welcome-to-budget-season-you-need-to-have-it-in-the-system-and-locked-this-week, Quarter-end, Government-fiscal-year-end-so-all-contracts-end-and-start-new-and-oh-yeah-you-need-to-create-the-invoices-for-them, can-you-do-this-work-I-said-I-would-do-while-you-were-gone-but-never-really-intended-to-do, can-you-price-this-deal reality. All of this is something that is either due this week (and I haven't completed it yet) or due next week. Like running smack into a brick wall. Grrr.

Maybe the weather is making me cranky. The first night I got back it was in the 60's, but since the high has been closer to 55 and it's been rainy. So much for getting out and enjoying fall.

Ok. I'm done whining. Back to work. More to come about my vacation soon. You know, when I get a chance to blog again!
