If only I didn't actually have to be there
I haven't been around much in blog land lately so I really must apologise for my tardiness in visiting and posting. Real life has been getting in the way of blogging, and well having fun in general, though I did go to the cinema with CrazieQueen to see Sweeney Todd which I thoroughly enjoyed. All work and no play makes Bobkat a dull girl, and I am seriously losing my shine.
Life is so short that it seems odd to wish your life away but I simply cannot wait until February is over. My boss is not going to retun to work until at least March so I will have to continue doing two jobs for now - I have two projects due to deliver this month, a big presentation to give to 120 delegates next week and a working group to co-ordinate and run on top of all the day to day stuff. It wouldn't be so bad if the big bosses still didn't expect everything to be delivered despite our team being down by 50% (my colleague is still working part time). Yes, I have met with them, yes, they have listened to my position, heard my options for working, nodded sagely and then proceeeded to pile on the pressure...[sigh]. There is very little in terms of extra resources and so I feel I am definitely one of 'The Willing' mentioned in the quote.
I also have my MBA final project to do by the end of the month and I am starting to panic. You see, it is meant to be work based but work have not been very supportive and so I am having to wing it. To tell you the truth I am feeling just an ickle tiny weeny bit stressed. I know this is all a challenge and if it doesn't kill me it will make me stronger etc., but, do I really have to be there?
Which is why receiving another 'Roar for Powerful Words' award was so nice to get. Susan over at 'West of Mars' passed it on to me and coming from such a talented writer as her, and a fellow rock chick it was a huge, and well needed compliment. Thanks! Follow the links (in bold) to visit Susan or the origin of the award at 'The Shameless Lions Writing Circle'. I have already passed this award on to other bloggers *here*.
During February please bear with me while I weather the storm. I suspect my visits and posts will be sporadic but I will pop by when I can.
