If I move around a couple of things on my desk so I can get to my calendar, I can see that today is Administrative Professionals' Day. Woohoo! That's me!! I have a program to go to this morning and I'm getting a certificate for completing a series of training workshops. It's only taken me about two and a half years to finish it! And technically I still have one class left, but they're letting me "graduate" anyway as long as I promise to finish that class this summer.
Looking at the calendar on my computer, I can barely see the graduation program through all the other things scheduled. I work in academia, so this is the big push to finish up the semester. It's also when we start the count down to the end of the budget year. Our office is hiring seven students for next year and that entails 12 interviews. I also have two trainings this week and next week to go to. I'm sure there are other things I'm forgetting. My planner is pretty ridiculous at this point.
There's also lots going on at home. While the hours don't overlap, the space in my brain does and it's getting harder to keep track of all the things that need to happen. There's a workshop called Healthy Brains/ Healthy Child going on tonight at my daughter's school. I was really looking forward to it. Especially because dinner and childcare are provided. That's my love language, right there!!
Just this morning, however, I realized that it's not likely to work out. Henry meets with his big sister today and doesn't get home til 5:30. Frances has a program with her after-school group that goes until 6. Ken could keep the kids and let me go by myself, but we've only got one vehicle right now and he wouldn't have a way to pick them up.
It's nice to be appreciated, but I'm wondering if this couldn't be scheduled at a better time of year?
I'm linking up with the 1 Word Blog challenge. This week's words are forgotten and ridiculous.
