Well, that's about it for now. For all you long time LJers who've fallen off the bandwagon and many of you therefore off my radar, if you're still reading, feel free to post something and let me know you're still alive.

I haven't gone to work on a weekend in probably about a year now. I had begun to forget how much I hate it.
However, being down by a person in tech support for two weeks now and being hit with the typical month end flood of work, worse by it being the biggest month in years and not being able to delegate some of the work I normally do (see aforementioned tech support shortage) and having a weird annual update not work right and chew through hours of my time yesterday, oh and I'm leaving Friday for a two week vacation, well, I just had to get in here today and try to play catch up. And you know what, seven hours of catch up was just not enough.
Just a few more days and this will be the first vacation in years that I will *NOT* be doing work while I'm on vacation.

Memorial Day weekend - Very nice. Monique and I mostly just stayed at home and didn't do much. Slept in all 3 days. She worked on work stuff a fair amount of the weekend, but she really likes her work and weekends is where she tends to do the, "Wouldn't it be cool if I had time to play around with <x>" type stuff instead of focusing completely on the daily needs. I spent the time working primarily on 7V stuff, but that's ok as I enjoy that.
Monday we met gianajho and klee39 for lunch at the Olive Garden in Mancheter CT and talked for a couple of hours. That was absolutely delightful. I wish I could meet with friends like that more often. Gianajho showed me the book she's working on for me. It was wonderful and I can't wait to see the finished book.
The week at work has been both too short and too long. I am overwhelmed by the amount I have to do and thus the reason my updating has been sparse.
I saw my Rolfer again yesterday for the first time in a couple of months. I sadly missed my session with her last month. She has been doing far more for my ankle problem than any of the "real" doctors. Of course to get squeezed in I had to miss one of my weekly meetings here at work. I was absolutely heart broken over that (*right*). I have to move to better orthotics. If that still doesn't help (in addition to the exercises she's given me) then I'll probably have to move to a pediatrist and maybe custom shoes.
We're going up to NH for the weekend to visit parents, walk with the brother for NHAB and go to his bardic and oh shit, I just realized I forgot my flute. Darn it. Oh well, I'll just have to sing or something instead.
( Theatre thoughts )
( ERP and (not) vacation )
( JoAnn's and the Dollar Tree (sounds like a fairy tale) )
So now I'm working on catching up on a whole bunch of stuff. Maybe I'll actually get some of it done.
One last thought. Thank God the weather wasn't like this last weekend. I think I'd die running around in the sun in a black, furry dog suit this weekend.
