My answer is Yes! Because my head imploded last week and no one noticed! Except me, of course. With the re-org at work, we went from four people working on the same products down to me and three folks who are trying to dump their work onto me! With that, I need to learn a new part of the job, working with subcons. There doesn't seem to be a clear list of fill out this form, then this one, then this one. Still asking for that!
We did get a new body working on the "my" product. He knows the job and he knows the subcon part (mostly). Just have to train him on the product. Should only take a year or two! LOL! And, we did find out that we are getting one new person. He will be learning the job, the product AND the subcon. So, not only do I cover what will be his products, but I also get to assist in the training of both of these guys. AND, keep my projects on track. And send updates. And go to meetings (I had SEVEN meetings scheduled today...yes, I work an EIGHT hour day....you do the math!) LOL! For those without a calculator, that means I only had about an hour to do real work. hee hee
And no one has noticed that my head imploded and that crazy little miner guys are running around through the remaining gray matter, making brain angels and having brain-ball fights. I know they are there. I hear them! LOL!
Okay, time to put all these crazy thoughts to bed.

At work today, I reduced the number of unread e-mails to just under 200. Of course, I left early to watch my daughter play volleyball, so it'll be back up to 250+ in the morning, but I did knock it down!
I'm caught up with everything at home and it's only 10:23.
So...what am I forgetting? What was I supposed to do that I didn't? Who's going to yell at me tomorrow for not doing it today? I don't know and I don't think I care enough to stay up any longer and find out! LOL!

And all of you who are know I'm right! LOL! If I were an irresponsible anything (adult, child, warmonger, etc.) I could have slept in much later than I did. I could have taken a nap. I would have sat on my butt and read my book until my buns were numb! LOL!
But, no, my parents had to instill a work ethic and a conscience. Dang it! I did sleep in until a little after 9:00. Since no one else was up until 8:30, I have no guilty feelings about that at all! After eating the delicious breakfast DH prepared, I started getting stuff done. I went to the gym. I did two loads of laundry. I made dinner for both tonight and tomorrow night. I started auctions. I braided my daughter's hair. I cooked my veggies for the next couple of days (and did the dishes from that!). Now I'm going to fill out paperwork for FSA reimbursements. When all that is done, it will be time for bed.
All I wanted to do, however, was find out what "terrible" secrets Robert Langdon finds in Dan Brown's newest book "The Lost Symbol"! (He's the guy who wrote "The DaVinci Code") Regardless of whether I believe everything he writes, it is an entertaining story. And I want to be entertained! Whaaaaaa!!!
Okay...done being a baby. Back to adulthood. Hope you are all enjoying your responsible lives! LOL!

Okay, so I'm short every night (and day and morning hee hee). I mean that this will be a short blog. I slept in a little bit. Just enough to not have time to do anything but get laundry started before heading to my son's football game. I was there for a little over 3 1/2 hours. Came home gathered my library stuff and ran the errands. Finally ordered my daughter's contacts!!!
Came home, did more laundry, took photos for auctions and then DH took us out to dinner (Johnny Carino's Yummy!!). Now that dinner has worn off, I'm going to go to the gym. Need to work off some of that 1500 calories I ate...yep...just for dinner. And, I only ate half of my entree!! Dang!
See y'all on the flip side!

Originally, my plans were to sleep in tomorrow as late as I could and still be up and ready for my son's game. This translates to me being able to sleep until 10:00 to comfortably get to the field on time.
But...I have 7.08 miles to go in two days on the Walk to Vegas challenge on the Idaho team. I took day 2 of my Nutrition Boot camp class today and I realized that I hadn't met any of the goals I put out for myself this week. I need to run to CostCo to order contacts for my daughter. I need to run an errand for DH. I get to go to the library. I want to go to the gym. I want to finish my book so I can start the next one (The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown!!). I want to start some auctions for DH for extra $$. I should clean the house. Laundry will need to be done.
So, we'll see how I feel when I wake up in the morning. DH will leave around 7 and wake me up to say good bye. I will decide then what wins...extra sleep or extra to-do's that will be ta-done!
