Lunch Plus a Gallon of Red Bull

May 29, 2008

Okay, so I’m days away from a major deadline at work. I need all engines firing – no room for failure and/or exhaustion. It must be said that I’m already a caffeine-aholic and this week isn’t making it any easier to back away from the Red Bull. It’s just so unbelievably tempting…I can keep it in my drawer people! I don’t even have to move from my chair to get the caffeine that I think I need to survive. Oh the thrill!

What a Morning!

November 23, 2005

It started at 6am, feeling sorry for myself…surely I was the ONLY one going to work today. John made me breakfast, which always helps. I jumped into my car after it warmed up a bit (Thank you John for my remote start!), I hit the road and it started SNOWING!!! There’s nothing like driving fast on the highway with snow bouncing off your windshield. I got to work and I kicked butt building eight content pages for the website, uploaded data via ftp for a co-worker, build some cool front page images and went shopping at lunch. Now I’m having a great day!

I need to pick up a poinsettia for Gail on my way home from work so we can take it to dinner tomorrow. What do get a person who has everything? A poinsettia!

Tomorrow’s weather prediction has us getting 2-4 inches of snow beginning before 9am. I can’t wait! We’ll get to try out the new ride-on snow blower. John will be traveling for the next two weeks during the week so I should probably learn how to operate at least one of the two snow blowers. Not thrilled with that prospect but I’ll get over it. We’re going to Charlie & Gail’s for Thanksgiving dinner at 1:30, it should be a pretty drive if we get the snow they are predicting.

The Open House Brunch is next weekend so the goal(s) for this weekend is to get the Christmas lights up on the house (woohoo), snake the wall to run the Entertainment center wires (John), get the server back up (we haven’t touched it since we moved), hang curtains and paint a second coat around the trim in the living room. I’ve got the menu all planned…Cream Cheese & Bacon Crescents, Sky High Brunch Bake, and Cheese & Ham Spirals. Fran’s bring her French Toast, Ronnie’s bringing 2 quiches and Linda is going to make Belgium Waffles. We’ll serve Mimosas, Bloody Marys, Coffee (with liquors available like Baileys) and Orange Juice. We’ve received 30 RSVPs so we should have a good turn out….I’m praying for a pretty day!

I’m almost done Christmas shopping…I think I only have 2 people left. I think this is a Shannie record! I’m usually still shopping well into December. I need to get started on my Christmas cards; I like to get them out early.

I have so much homework it’s ridiculous. I’m going to need the holiday time off to get it all done. I’ve been in denial but I do have to make myself write some boring papers and long message board postings to keep my grades up. If you want to be bored to sleep, take Operations Management! Have you ever wanted to know what it takes to run a manufacturing plant? Logistics and Supply Chain Management? Me either!!!!!!

The rest of my degree won’t be fun but it will be over at some point so that what keeps me going. I think I’ll take a semester off when I get married (in June). I’m getting a lot of pressure to do so. And I think if I don’t…I could find out what it looks like to have my brain explode and I don’t think it would be pretty…

I’m going to go finish this day with a Red Bull and some painting and maybe, just maybe some homework. I recommend the Red Bull (Sugar Free) but don’t attempt the homework! It will make your brain work and that would be bad…very very bad.

Slacker Friday

April 8, 2005

I wanted to slack off at work today because things have been so busy all week but I didn’t have much luck with it. I kept getting slammed with work. It seems like the longer I’m at this company the more they gain faith in my abilities to get more and more done. I need to figure out how to reverse the process. Kidding! We have a new four-legged family member, a six-week old kitty. She’s all white with a patch of gray on her forehead. She’s ridiculously cute!

The wedding plans are stalled while we live our normal lives and John travels all over the Northeast. He just gave me his itinerary for the next few weeks, it looks like I’ll have plenty of time for girl’s nights.
