Last night of school and a long shift at work…

Tonight is the last night of school. And I’m giving my book report on “Why we want you to be rich” to the class. If I had actually had any sleep in the last 48 hours I might be nervous about this presentation. See last night was month end and we had a glitch. So the options were, 1. Wake a vendor, convince her to help and stay all night fixing it. 2. Try it on my own and stay all night fixing it. 3. Give up and do it in the morning and lose 8 hours of productivity in both offices.

Well I went with option number 1 and by 7 am MDT the system was back up and running and by 10:30 am I was done with much of my regular Tuesday work and the office manager was freaked because I had a pizza box and 2 liters of Diet Coke on my desk and was dressed in the same clothes as yesterday. She sent me home at 11:00, she even offered to have someone drive me home. I think I’m getting too old for the 27 hour shifts.

Anyway when I got home, my DH had put together a bed in the basement where it was dark, quiet and cold. I did actually try to sleep but I was too wired thinking about the last night of school. It seems so strange that 2 years has gone by so fast. I remember 2 years ago trying to decide if I really wanted to do the MBA program. I think the best advice I got was – “What will happen if you don’t do it? You’ll be two years older and stuck in the same rut.” Thank you Margaret! About 12:30 when I was finally starting to drift off, my calendar beeped and I realized that I had a hair appointment in half an hour. Well my hair was looking pretty skanky and having a head massage during shampoo would be relaxing…. So I just finished having my hair done, and then I went next door and had a pedicure and manicure. My DD would have loved it. She has a thing about cute Asian guys and having one rub her feet would be heaven for her, I think. She leaves tomorrow for Anime Banzai in California. Well, I’m going to try and catch an hour of sleep before class starts tonight.
