ur maturity license, i revokes it.  
So let's just say that my work and my life has been a little Too Much in the last month, and let's also say that everyone in my office is out this morning, and there's just too much stuff on my desk...

So I took my laptop and am now working from underneath my desk!

Whatever works, right? Now I've just got to figure out how to get the phone down here, and I might actually make it through the rest of the day! :-P

I'm about 70% unpacked at my new apartment. Sadly, somewhere in that 30% is my hairbrush, which I haven't been able to find, but most of the other crucial things have been unburied. I still need to clean the old place. We really need to buy a few things for our new place (a coat bar that hangs on the wall, most importantly, since we don't have a coat closet), but since we're low on funds, I think we're going to put up some used curtain-rod brackets for coat hooks instead (because we are awesome that way). Sister is going out of town for the weekend, but I'm going to try to get a jump-start on it maybe tomorrow so that we won't have to do too much of it after work next week when we're already exhausted.

As far as work goes, I've GOT to throw some more cleaning & organization at my office and get a handle on the projects that are totally spun out of control (but cleaning first, because that always makes me feel better, and then maybe I can come out from under the desk!). I've also got to put together a time-blocked schedule and post it in big bright colors for my coworkers to see, so I can say things like "Stop giving me projects! Can't you see I'm transaction coordinating until 3!?"

Okay, mental-break-time is over. Once things settle down at the apartment, I think I can resume my exciting internet life (not to mention my exciting real life). Score!

Lots of love,

-- Little Red

It was so fun chatting with you recentleeeeeee!!


I didn't finish my work but I went home at 5. I thought about going in over the weekend to take another stab at it... but... now that I'm in my pajamas, I'm feeling awfully lazy. And it's not like I don't have a billion things to do with my various apartments, and, you know, FANFIC TO WRITE.

I KNOW! You're the best!

*glomps and smooches and hugs*

I think going home at 5 is a very good idea for you. Did you get anything unpacked? AND YAY. YOUR FANFIC WAS AWESOME BEYOND THE TELLING OF IT.

maturity license?!? Crap! Maybe that's my problem . . .

Great to hear from you! Glad you're in the new place - sorry work is crap right now . . .

Have fun in your fort!

Yes, the written test for the maturity license is a real killer. ;)

I had fun in my fort! Now I'm at home, which is kinda like a fort. Except I should probably get dressed and go Do Things. WOE!

I read this at work and thought that was probably much more fun than dealing with escrow paperwork. Was it?

Hope you made your deadline!

Erg work. La-la-la-la-la! Working from underneath the desk seems like an excellent strategy. I'd work from underneath my desk, but sadly there's not enough room...

Here, have my new pretty icon (CuteOverload rocks, but with this pic they totally out-did themselves), I have faith that you can appreciate it properly.

There have been days I've wanted to be able to work from under my desk. It would be awesome. If I could just work out how to get my computer down there...
Little Red: peanuts - better for weeksmylittleredgirl on May 3rd, 2008 05:30 pm (UTC)
Yes, laptops FTW in this instance! There are lots of boxes under my desk and I had to keep getting up to answer the phone (and when my coworker came in all ".......") but it was rad while it lasted!

I have to say, I also have been wanting to hide under my desk a couple of times a day for the past several weeks. Rough having a new job, isn't it? I've been on this one about 6 weeks now, but my office is still a disaster because I haven't been able to clean/reorganize because my day is jam-packed just trying to keep my "URGENT MUST DO" list from spiraling out of control.

I keep telling myself I'm bound to get the hang of it all eventually...and when I do, the list will magically complete itself...
Little Red: peanuts - no stressmylittleredgirl on May 3rd, 2008 05:32 pm (UTC)
OH MY GOD I totally know what you MEAN! It's ridiculous when you start a new job and don't get the chance to set up systems. I'm still reeling from that and it's been a few months now. Somehow I manage to work really hard all week... and things still don't get done!

I have faith in the magical list-completion. It will happen somehow! Who do we have to sacrifice goats to for this?

Well, you make me feel a lot better cuz I am super overwhelmed at work right now too, so I am hoping that I get things under control reeeeeal fast-like. Eek.

Unfortunately I do not have the option of turning my desk into a fort. Not much space, and too many people to ask questions.
