Have You Ever...

Unknowingly broken your bright blue pen and then touched your face? Yup, that would be what happened to me today.


Last week was slightly crazy for me. I was in the office by 5:00 to 5:15 am every single day last week, and did not head home until about 7:00 pm on most of those nights. At least I know that I will meet my billable hours goals this month. Days like those are strange because I get in to the office and then the next thing I know it is time to go home. It is amazing how fast the day flies by when you are cranking through a project. Anyway, the end result of last week was that I crashed on Friday night. I fell asleep super early...But then I woke up super early on Saturday. The early week last week apparently reprogrammed by internal alarm clock...Not good..I am not enjoying that I automatically wake up before 4:00 am!

Labor Day Weekend!

I am looking forward to the long weekend! I am desperately hoping that I will not walk out of the office today with a stack of work that has to be completed by Tuesday morning. We do not have any specific plans, other than relaxing and playing outside as much as possible! Long weekends make me miss living out west. If we were still living in Utah, we'd be out exploring in the desert this weekend. You would find us jeeping in Moab or hiking some peak. Don't get me wrong...There are plenty of outdoor activities out here, but it's not the same experience. I think most people as they get older grow fonder of where they grew up. And I am definitely missing the west.

Well, have a great weekend everyone!

Team Projects

I have been working on a team project with two other co-workers over the past few weeks. It has been a simple project, with each of us researching a few examples of recent chapter 11 filings. The only real issue with this project has been that the default team leader holds meetings to discuss the project almost everyday. His meetings have been such a waste of time. Two of us finished our research last week. The only one who has not finished his research is the the team leader who holds meetings to discuss the project. He needs to shut up and do his stupid research. And when the boss asked the team leader yesterday why the project was not finished, he responded it was because there were too many of us on the project. WTF?? Nothing like passing the buck..

Update: Just sat with the team leader on this project, and I now understand why he has been taking forever on this project. The other member of the team put incorrect information in our report. I just spent the last two hours redoing her research..Ugh!
