Life Sucks!

Not feeling well. I ended up having to go to lunch with the group to “celebrate” two birthdays in my office. Net total? $29 down the drain (family style and had to chip in for 2 lunches) and I didn’t eat a lot. I’m hot, tired and feeling kind of light headed. I even left before they got around to ordering dessert but at least they brought some leftover Tiramisu back for me. Not that I feel like eating it at the moment.

On one side of me was S and her boss discussing work and on the other side of me the guys were discussing poker. Needless to day I didn’t have much to say at lunch. It sucks not having anything in common with any of the coworkers when you have to go out to lunch every couple of months. At least I won the office pool on J’s losses in “Lost Wages” so I am not actually out any money for lunch.

Right before lunch we had a meeting where the schedule for the next 45 days was laid out. Of course what was announced was I am probably going to have to work part of the weekend that D is here. I’m hoping if I kill myself with work during the week I can minimize the time working, but I will probably have to come in for a few hours on that Saturday.

On top of that I’m going to have to work Veteran’s day and that whole weekend. When I reminded my boss I had planned to go out of town then, she said basically “I’m sorry, but the only thing I can suggest is go this weekend instead.” Of course that doesn’t work because I have to deal with plane tickets, a wedding and life in general. Plus I want to make it a 4 day weekend, which is why Veteran’s day was such a good deal. Now I’m figuring I’ll try to go the next 3 day weekend I have open (If that’s okay with D) which is looking like MLK day (January 17)!!!!

Yes, there are lots of holiday weekends between now and then, but they are mostly mandatory family weekends. Thanksgiving, and Christmas I have to be with the family and New Year’s Day is Yule Revel which I’m helping to cook.

So right now when I all I want to do is curl up in D’s arms and relax I find that work is taking away the little bit of time I get to spend in his presence.

Alas. The best laid plans of mice and men. I will miss you, and your visit.

Perhaps I can find some way to express my displeasure to $boss at some point that doesn't either jeopardize your position, nor leave it unclear, nor uncertain what I think of her approving this, and then welching on you.

Perhaps, since it can be pointed out that you are loosing a 4-day weekend, for MLK weekend not only will you have Monday off, but perhaps you could take Friday or Tuesday off as well.

Perhaps I can just bother Lars, my Fairy God Mother to bestow upon you enough of a lottery win that takes some of the pressures off of you, so you can find a better place, and time, and not worry so much about the day to day.

Perhaps I should pick another writing style ... nope, that won't happen.

*sigh* at least I will get some time with you.

Hold tight to the dream, for that is the only thing that keeps us going at times.

Re: Most sad
It seems (and I fully believe this) that she forgot that we had even discussed it. She had it in her mind that I had originally wanted to go in November but that I went Labor Day weekend instead. Which is technically true, except that then it appeared that I could go after all, and she had said it was okay so I figured I could go in Nov as well. She had forgotten that I went ahead and bought tickets after she said it was okay because she kept telling herself that I wasn't going to go up a 2nd time in 3 months.

Oh well, I've decided that if it is okay with you for me to come up MLK weekend I will try to get whole week off...I know you'll have to work but at least I can be there whenever you are off. Then I can come up Friday night and leave Sunday. I should have that kind of leave saved up by then. I'm not going to ask for it right this instant though, I'm going to wait until we have the proposal turned in for the next option year.

Re: Most sad
MLK weekend is Arisia, and I will be "working" that as well. But we will see what we will see.

Should you be available for the 17th 18th and 19th of December, then, it would be my pleasure, to take you to the Flee up here in Boston.

Re: Most sad
I will talk to the boss and see if I can get off during that time. I'm figuring that I will try to take a few days so I can spend lots of time snuggling with you and M.
