Took 3 calls on way to work (shhhhh - don't tell the cops) and was already frazzled by the time I arrived.
9:30 AM Edited "I Love Lucy" episode for the Chairman of the Board to use at Shareholder Meeting. At least I got a few chuckles out of this one.

10:30 AM Exchange with HR on miscommunications regarding employee status. And felt they were totally trying to snow me on whose fault it was.
11:00 AM Group Meeting. Realized I had 12 more deadlines than I was truly aware of. Sigh.

12:30 PM Review of Annual Report draft - needs total re-write - Today. Sigh.

3:00 PM Odds and ends and life's little emergencies.
5:30 PM Setup to videotape Chairman for Year in Review summary.

7:15 PM Completed about 6 takes - hope we got what we need.
