Leaps in the Space-Time Continuum


Spoiler alert: there is a bit of whining involved in this post. Okay, maybe a lot. In fact, you should probably just push the back button now.

What is it when your days are full and the Space-Time Continuum gets completely out of whack? What can I say? I'm a geek girl. I confess I love Star Trek. Well, original, NextGen, and a smattering of DS9 anyway, but I digress. Seriously. It feels like tomorrow must be Tuesday because I have no clue where the actual Tuesday through Thursday went.

At all.

And my inbox is full. And phone calls haven't been returned. Not just the ones from sales people, either. Friends. People I actually like. And I had to opt out of a meeting I actually cared about today. And I've either gone to work early or stayed late for so many days I can't remember when I did a normal one. And I realized after a kind reminder from Angie that I hadn't updated the HFG website like since July so I stayed really, really late to fix it and get the next meeting date up but didn't finish all the updates because everything just seemed to run together. And I ran into someone I knew after work looking all dreadful with no makeup and she didn't recognize me. And all I really want to do is go lay on a beach somewhere and listen to the waves.

And if this sounds dangerously like whining, that's because it is. (And because John is playing softball and Bethany is babysitting, I get to tell all this to you.)

So....because gratitude is the best anectdote I know for whining, I have to say that at least I actually like the people I'm warping through this space-time continuum with. And John has created some really amazing evenings that make me not feel so overwhelmed. And there is hope on the horizon because I have a week of vacation in November with two random Fridays off in between for an art day and an anniversary trip.

Hmm....where's that "Earth Sounds" tape? Because I'm relatively sure that's as close as I'm gonna get to the beach tonight.
