Wow…I don’t think I’ve ever been as busy as I have been in the last month. I haven’t had time to do anything but run from one place to the next. My poor email hasn’t been read the whole time…last time I checked, there were 230+ pieces of new mail waiting.To tell the truth, I couldn’t even tell you why. It’s not any particular thing but it’s as though the cosmic forces have come together to prevent me from having a relaxing moment to do fun stuff — like read mail.

The good news is that, after two months of living in limbo at work, facilities finally found time this week to build my cubicle. Then it took another four days for phone and network to move my stuff to the new spot. As of Friday at 5pm, though, I finally got all moved in. I almost feel human!

They’re still jacking me around up there. Well, that’s not really fair. They aren’t jacking me around, they just aren’t setting any priorities for me. I work like a demon on one thing and before I can finish it, they want me to stop and work on something else. So, it’s not jacking me around; it’s just unsatisfying for me. I’m the kind of person who likes to put the period at the end of the sentence, and if I’m not allowed to do that, it drives me nuts.

So, I’m a little nuts right now.

(Shut up you people who are saying “So, what else is new?” to yourself! ;)

Anyway…this is just to say, if you are one of my friends (and you know who you are) and I haven’t written you back in a while or called you or even picked up the phone when you rang in, it’s not you…it’s me.

Now, I’ll leave you with the song going through my head right now…it’s one of my favorites, and I’d forgotten it until I heard it on last week’s Las Vegas. Happy trails, everyone.
