This week has been more work than planned. My boss and I have been working on a very large research project for a long time, and every time we think we're getting close to done, something else goes wrong, and we're set back. It's a joint project with another department, but we've done most of the work. This week, it was finding out that one of the undergrads who assisted on the project had either done his work sloppily or not at all, so I've spent the week doing everything he was supposed to have done, and it's been VERY tedious. On top of that, one of my colleagues has spent the whole week calling me to make excuses not to do work because he's feeling very unmotivated, and nothing I say seems to help. Given that we were in a casual relationship until very recently (not quite 2 months ago), it frustrates me because I feel he needs to perhaps talk about this stuff with the girl he "dumped" me for (Can you be dumped if you weren't officially anything?) or at least someone who isn't still hurt and confused by him at the moment. I don't know- it's hard to trust someone who's hurt you and to want to be kind to them at all, and it's even tougher not to be suspect of their motives and actions.

We're supposed to get a lot of snow and ice tomorrow and Saturday. I guess my new boots will be useful after all! Being snowed in will also give me lots and lots of time at home, so I probably will get some cleaning in as well.

I hope you feel better soon!! :-)

My week has been really great. I was very busy at work Monday and Tuesday. Tues was our city's business expo, so being there was a nice change of pace! I got to see a lot of familiar faces, some blasts from the past among them. Yesterday (Wed) I used some comp. time and took the day off, to do just do whatever I wanted. I wound up driving to a Coach outlet and splurging on 2 bags (although it still was not very expensive at outlet + sale prices!), encouraged by DH because he wanted me to get something special for Valentine's Day and was at a total loss for what to get. I stopped in another town on the way and had lunch at Chipotle and did some thrift shopping and browsed a couple of little galleries. Last night DH & his male friends had a guy night (wings, beer, trivia/sports etc) so I stayed in, conditioned all of my leather shoes and bags, watched Marie Antoinette and chatted on the phone. What a GREAT day it was :-)

Today I'm off to work and hoping our area will get the onslaught of wintry weather we're expecting, so I might not have to work Fri! Fingers crossed!
