Lost Without a Topic

Forgive me.  I'm all about the random thoughts today.

Working on a proposal for a client in Chile...but can't reach them, or the team, so no idea if anyone is even prepared to receive it in the wake of latest natural disaster.

Saturday was Grandma's birthday and I remember all the years we were able to have a lovely celebration in a restaurant or in our home and later in the nursing home.  This year, we did not.  I miss it, but we cannot recreate it anymore.  Grandma doesn't understand, she doesn't know us, and with 2 feet of snow on the ground there wasn't much hope of getting there anyway.

Just got an email from Airfare Watchdog that the flights to Venice this Spring are now half off.  Unfortunately, the flights in July (our planned trip) are still topping $1200/person.  Waiting and seeing.

I'm a little stuck on the home improvement front.  I'm blaming it on the sinus thing I have going right now.  I Nyquil coma'd myself all weekend which gave me lots of hours of restorative sleep, but not much progress.  Now I'm having a little bit of a panic attack over the project requiring me to empty that one project room - which tends to lead to a leakage of items throughout the house.  Chaos everywhere.  That does NOT work well with me.

Miche bag still has not arrived.  I'm awaiting it with bated breath.  I hope I like it!

Word on cousin Brian is slightly favorable, but we are also awaiting each day's status with bated breath as well.  Scarcely dare to hope.

Management bonuses are due out end of next week.  I wonder if I'll be pleasantly surprised?  I wonder if it will partially pay for Venice?  This could be my last bonus ever...no one knows if MERGER will provide them in future.

Positive feedback on a project we did over the course of 2009 which resulted in a 28 page report.  Finally got attention from some execs on worthwhile effort.  Question now is, what's next? and who has the energy for phase 2?

How can it seem on Monday like the week will never end?

I have to complete one last assignment for my current semester (ended last weekend) and then I have to register for the next semester...and this is thesis prep time.  I'm exhausted just thinking about it.

Blah Blah Blah.  Somehow I feel this should go into the draft folder and never come out, but what the hell.

Sometimes a general update is just the thing.

Thinking good thoughts for a big bonus!

I'm sorry about your Grandma. That kind of hurts to read. I hate feeling like something is gone.

It seems like a lot of Internet people are having rough weeks. Maybe fortunes will turn for everyone at the very same time!
