Happy Mayday!

I am back! (I am sure no one missed me, but you know FYI…)

So here’s what has consumed all my time lately…
1. My mom is apparently dying. She has a number of problems including some sort of inoperable heart condition. I am not sure what is going on so it has been stressful. I could get a call any day to come and make the cremation arrangements…
2. Work has been outrageous! We are arranging for graduate final oral comprehensive exams, so I have spent the past two weeks working with 100 schedules to arrange for them…
3. Household annoyances. Last week when it was like 85 degrees our AC went out, we had to borrow a window unit from my husband’s store and have both been struggling to do basic things like water our plants and feed and walk the dogs…
4. I am busy trying to make some arrangements for June NYC and DC. I have been looking at hotels and stuff and trying to nail down my plans…
5. Class is ending but I still have the final exam and like an idiot I agreed to do an extra credit kind of presentation deal, okay actually not any extra credit, just brownie points.
6. I am co-planning the spring get together for the staff council and chairing the mentoring committee too! ARGH! So much to do, why didn’t I just say I couldn’t do it?

Anyway, I am thinking very seriously about going to Korea and Japan next year for a women’s studies conference. I have to talk to my bosses about a) taking the time off and b) seeing if they will/can pay for any of the cost.

Class is finally winding down. Thank goodness. I am hoping he is going to let us out a bit early next Thursday so we can come home and watch the Friends' finale. I am also going to try to remember to tape it just in case, ‘cause I am dumb and I know I will cry through most of it…

I am very, very, very behind on commenting, for that I apologize. It has been such a busy couple of weeks.

I hope I can be around rather regularly now. Oh also, I just added a few more interests and changed my background. It was time for something new. But definitely after May 15th I will have time to do more with LJ.

Thanks
Thanks for the offer, in the coming weeks I may rant or whine a bit... I hope not, but we'll see.

Also, way cool on your sis going to Japan! A good friend of mine has decided to move over there for a year to teach English. I think I will really enjoy the opportunity if it works out.

Keep your fingers crossed!

Hope you are having a fantastic Monday!

Stress. Me? Never!
LOL!

On a serious note I saw the post about your poor dear sweet hedgehog and am very sad... I know you are a great pet owner and it hurts so much to lose a dear friend. I admire your strength, courage, and most of all your kindness. (((hugs)))

I hope you have a wonderful week dear.

Ignore me if I start to rant or whine too much!

Re: Stress. Me? Never!
Awww, thank you sweetie, that really means a lot to me. Thank you for your caring words. :)

It was very upsetting, but he is in a wonderful place now, with all my other babies, waiting for me. :) I can't be sad if he's happy. :)

Hehe, you have a wonderful week too! ::hugs::

Thanks so much sweetie, I can use all the hugs I can get right now...

Cindy told me about your offer to share the ride to DC. I think that is the nicest thing possibly, ever!

I saw your post about moving... sorry I have been so out of it lately... How long before you have to move? (sidenote: WAHHH!) Before Slythcon???
