My plans for the weekend have been derailed. I will not be headed to Frankenmuth as planned, which means no yummy chicken dinner. Boo!
Instead I will get up on Saturday morning an entire hour later than normal and head back into the office. I have another stressful deadline on Monday and I need to have everything ready to go. I have to present the work to a committee. To throw a bit of a wrench into things, I am on Jury Duty next week. I may have to shunt my responsibility to a co-worker, something I hate to do because it makes me feel like I am not living up to my responsibilities.
I’ll know by Sunday whether I need to report on Monday morning. I constantly get Jury Duty, every time I am eligible I get that questionnaire in the mail and a summons. This is my fourth summons in the last eight years. Since I may not be available to present my work, I feel extra pressure to make sure it looks OK for the other person, so a weekend in the office it is!
On the other hand, I won’t spend any money if I am chained to my desk. Hmmm…. maybe this is the solution to my financial dilemma. I don’t make extra money, but I can’t get to the store to buy anything either!
