Whew! It is still crazy at work. The weekend flew by, starting with dinner at Colin & Mailing's on Friday. I completely forgot to take pictures, but they made pizza with home-made crust, home-made sauce, etc. It was all delicious.
Saturday I met Dee for coffee and a bit of knitting which was such a welcome relief. Sunday was mostly doing work I had brought home. Long story short: it's that time of year when bonus calculations are completed. At our units we have Directors, Assistant Directors and Operations Managers who are all eligible for bonus payments. The world that I support includes roughly 600-700 facilities/units. That equates to roughly 1,800 eligible employees. I need to verify that 1) there is funding, 2) that payments requested have not exceeded the funding, 3) that everyone has been captured. Two things have happened: 1) I found out that the summary of available funding provided me by accounting is incorrect. YIKES! 2) Yesterday it was discovered that the calculation sheet used for the operation managers is not correct. DOUBLE YIKES. My summaries need to be completed by close of business tomorrow!
So, all of that to say that I have not really had time to read blogs or comment. I'm sneaking in this quick post and then will be back next week.
I have done a little bit of knitting on Colin's blanket - the first cables are finished:
I'm really liking the way this is turning out. It's a fun knit (as long as I don't try to do too many rows with the bulky yarn and big needles!!).
My good news is that this weekend is Sisters' Weekend! I fly to Providence, RI Thursday morning. We have massages booked for Friday and we plan to eat, drink and talk! I am more than ready. My flight back is Sunday morning and then I'll be right back to the mess at work on Monday.
I do hope you all are doing well and enjoying Fall. Did anyone go to Rhinebeck???
oh ugh. I sure hope those 1,800 folks appreciate all your hard work to get their bonuses right!! LOVING Colin's blanket and sending wishes for safe travels and lots of fun this weekend!!ReplyDelete
I really hate when work completely overtakes life! Your Sisters Weekend has perfect timing - a good reward at the end of the week.ReplyDelete
It sounds like CORRECT information would make your job much easier! Here's hoping you get that (and there is funding available for a big bonus for you!) and have have a wonderful Sisters' Weekend. You definitely deserve it!ReplyDelete
Why is it we always have to either Earn our getaways or Pay for them...or Both?ReplyDelete
Enjoy Sisters' Weekend. And the blanket looks really great thus far.
The blanket is looking amazing!!!ReplyDelete
Your weekend sounds like fun. I just saw one of my sister's yesterday and we were just saying it's been ages since we've gotten together. The best we can hope for is maybe lunch after the holidays....busy, busy, busy. Not me. Them. Lol.
Oh, I do like how that blanket is looking! Nice! Bright, yes, but it's so pretty! Sorry you're so busy at work. But yay on your upcoming sister's weekend! I hope you have a wonderful time!ReplyDelete
Oh, the blanket is coming along beautifully-it is quite a big project!ReplyDelete
Enjoy your weekend!
Your weekend sounds like it is just what you will need after this week at work. Hey! My Hubby is an Operations Manager! Will he get one of those bonus'? LOLReplyDelete
That blanket is wonderful Vera. So sunshiney and cheerful. I know Colin will love it.
Wishing you a good day today with some calm and peaceful moment to be found within the chaos.
I hope the rest of your work week goes as smoothly as possible! Enjoy your weekend- it will be well-deserved by the sound of it!ReplyDelete
Sorry about all the work issues! Have a great trip next weekend. You can leave ALL that stuff behind and just ENJOY!ReplyDelete
Hmm, my opinion - no bonuses for accounting! I hope you were able to straighten everything out and that your week goes well.ReplyDelete
Oh boy, that's a lot of incorrect information!! I hope you enjoy your get-away... it sounds wonderful!ReplyDelete
I hope the busy-ness dies down soon. Enjoy!ReplyDelete
Ugh. Work is such a drag sometimes . . . and especially when the calculations are not right to begin with!!! But . . . that blanket looks so cheerful and happy, so that's got to be a nice counterbalance. Plus Sisters Weekend!!! So much fun. XOReplyDelete
lovely blanket and have fun with the sister weekend!!ReplyDelete
