How is it that a few days before leaving for vacation, my workload suddenly quadruples? Our marketing lady decided I did such a great job on the grant application that I won in October that I should do another one, this time for 8 million. Oh, and I have 1 day and half instead of the three hellish weeks I got for the last application. haha. Is she bleepin' crazy? Looks like I'm spending the next two nights here.
I decided to get some balls and reminded her that I wasn't willing to cancel my vacation and that I WILL be leaving here no later than 8am on Saturday for my 16 hour drive to Miami and I WILL have a full nights worth of sleep before I leave.
I hate it that she doesn't read the requirements for the proposal enough to realize this requires much more time to prepare. I feel bad for the client because there is no flipping way they are going to get a high-end proposal to submit with this type of time crunch. There are so many other high priority projects going on here right now, I can't even get anyone to help me out. Yes, my office is one stressful place this month.
I love my job, I love my job, I love my job.
However, in 3 days I will be laying on the beach somewhere, sipping on pina coladas, man watching, and relaxing. All of this nonsense will be miles away. I can hear the waves already. ahhh.
Yesterday, I checked to make sure my first pick donor was still available and he has plenty of vials left. I have my big purchase marked on my calender for Feb. 18th, one week after my follow-up appointment with the gyno. I can't wait to be back in the game!
