My calendar this month feels a bit like the two cars above, far to much packed far to closely together. I started out the month in Cincinnati, with two nights and three days of intense (read 12 to 17 hour days) working on a program review for a funder. I returned from that with another half-a-dozen interviews to do by phone and a massive report to write - due November 9th. The middle of the month was our quarterly board meeting at work, that we hold three times a year. It was an in person meeting, so there was a late dinner the night before, the day after that we got married. This past Friday and Saturday I was at a conference interviewing law students for summer internships - Saturday was a waste of time 2 out of the 3 students scheduled for interviews failed to show up. This Tuesday I have an annual partners meeting for the project that funds 80% of my time at work, I get to be the asshole and tell them what we have screwed up for the past 7 years. Wednesday afternoon I check into a hotel and do a walk through with the hotel staff for the National Aging and Law Conference, I produce the project, Thursday and Friday will be 12+ hour days. Then I need to finish the Cincinnati report and work on a research project that is now three months behind schedule - only one hour of work was done on it when I was out on medical leave for 9 weeks this summer. All a little much packed in kind of tight.
