Stacked up and backed up and other miscellaneous tidbits...

Not plumbing or intestinal problems, just work. I've been incredibly blah about my day job. Luckily, I'm my own boss and know what absolutely *has* to get done, and what I can push off till the next day or the next week.

Except, of course, when blah turns into the desire to write rather than catch up on work.

So I decided to clean my desk as a pre-cursor to getting caught up, so I have a stacks of unopened mail, client payments to deposit, work orders to turn into invoices, bills to pay, and other miscellaneous things that I'll decide what to do with later. I think I'm going to have to work late a couple of evenings next week - I can get way more done without ringing phones and chatting employees.

Lists always help me, so I've created a list of things to do this weekend, including getting back to my kitchen.

My husband and I went out to dinner with some very dear friends of ours, and enjoyed several hours of good conversation and laughter (all without alcohol, although I think the other patrons questioned the contents of our glasses). I don't get to visit often with my friend, so this was a much needed get together.

I've started watching the Harry Potter movies. I promised my children that when all the movies were out we'd have a Harry Potter fest. Well, all the movies are *not* out, but I finally decided to get started, and have gotten through the third movie so far. I'll probably watch number four this weekend while working on upper cabinet doors. (I'm all about multi-tasking whenever possible.)

All right, now that I've delayed my desk-cleaning for another ten minutes, I guess I'd better get back to it...
