It’s been a less than stellar week, and it’s only tuesday! I hsve a mental list of posts I want to write, but lack of energy at home.
Where to start?
On Monday, where I found that a summay I wrote, for which I had to throw the rest of my workload under the bus for a week and am still dealing with the consequences, had been circulated to approximately no one in the past three weeks since i finished it. Originally the plan had been to give said summary to someone else to jazz it up for the trustes (because that wasn’t insulting either) but that didn’t happen. Anyway I had to go to a meeting today where the three other participants had received a copy of the summary and were starting a response to the original document based on my summary of it. so three people read it. It makes me feel less than warm and fuzzy about certain people at my work. Thankfully they are not ones i interact with much. (for those that know me in real life and have heard me whinge about a particular character who usually adds to my workload- he was the one who actually got the ball rolling on other people seeing it and was not the cause of my issue)
Today when I totally blanked on an industry update (for which a substantial sum was paid to register) and thereby missed the first hour. Gah. And i reminded myself about it yesterday, but blanked today. Luckily, the parts i particularly wanted to hear were the ones that were scheduled later. But i felt like an idiot, and was very frustrated.
The general feeling of meh.
The return of the person whose desk is next to mine after 9 weeks of holiday. We are not at each other’s throats, but she is not a quiet person, and she is just about to start organising her wedding. time to sort out some good headphones.
I talked to my sister about donor eggs last week. She s still on board, but had seen a counselor and had some questions, issues. She emailed me, and also indicated she didnt know where we were up to, so we could refuse eggs if wanted. I emailed back about the fact that after 4 miscarriages and 3 failed IVF cycles donor eggs and/or PGD are serious options. I havent really talked to my family about the last miscarriage, it was such a brief pregnancy that it never went far. my mum knew about all three of the other ones, but i wasnt sure if my sister knew. She didn’t. We will try to schedule a cycle so she can come out for retrieval the weekend that we have our big family get-together. That way she has something to look forward to, and it provides a reason for the visit for the curious. My mum knows that we are doing this, but I really dont want to discuss it with the wider family until it is something. So my sister is one of those people who can manipulate her cycle with the pill. I am not. Which makes me very happy i am not going through IVF in the USA, so many clinics seem to use that as a start.
I need new sneakers. I can feel the heel support in mine is no longer good. I hate spending $200 on sneakers (the typical price for a decent pair here) I know the value of decent shoes though.
The accounting team at work has lost my expense claim for my ipad cover. yet they will probably process my signed off deduction to purchase the old ipad immediately. not impressed.
Oh, and i keep meaning to sign up for ICLW, but am freaked out and forget.
