My “indecisive hostile takeover” made a decision and it has resulted in me drowning in work. The good news is that I have a team to manage which gives me all kinds of professional and personal growth opportunities. The bad news is that people require a lot more time and energy than spreadsheets and power points. The even worse news is that I still have a lot of power points and spreadsheets to tend to.
My hope is that once this transitional period is over (the one that has been going on forever!) I can settle in to a work routine that is not so crazy and all consuming.
In the mean time, there has been no yoga, no meditating, no reading on the Kindle, no interesting learning adventures, no hanging out with friends, no blogging. A lot of work and some TV because that is all my brain can handle at the end of a long stressful day.
I am almost done with Breaking Bad Season 3 which is so amazing. I watched an episode last night where Walter is obsessed with a fly and will not cook meth in his fancy new lab (or leave the lab or sleep) until the fly is dead. He becomes delirious and some serious ridiculousness and deep pontificating occurs between him and his sidekick Pinkman. Good TV.
I am tuning in to American Idol but I might be outgrowing this show. I LOVE J Lo and Steven Tyler on the judges panel but I am not loving the contestants. How can I really get in to 18 year olds talking about how they have wanted this “their whole lives.” This week they sang songs from the year they were born. Like in the 90s! Ugh..the top 5 will be cool but until then it’s kind of painful.
I just half watched a Medium marathon (culminating in the series finale) while I paid bills and read backlogs of email. The show got a little bit old with Alison misinterpreting what dead people are telling her in her dreams EVERY WEEK. No one ever caught on (except me) that she always gets it wrong for the first 45 minutes of the show. After her 5th dream or so, she figures it all out and saves the day. Same formula every week. My favorite part of the show was her husband, Joe. He is a super nice, smart, geeky stud and a great husband and dad. He was smart enough to question those dreams! He will always be preserved in my blog (until they take down this picture that I have linked to, in bad blog form..)
