Who counsels the counselor?

There are days when I just can't bare to listen. Not that I'm having any problems myself, but I'd like to have a day when the entire world isn't venting their issues on me. A day where I can just focus on my own stuff, be it good or bad. It's like the container where I put the stuff everyone else dumps on me is full, and the garbage man hasn't come yet.

So if I'm short with anyone today, I'm sorry. I don't mean to be, but I'm trying to keep stuff from overflowing onto the floor.

And the hits just keep on coming...

So I finally got word that the project that's been my pet for the last year and a half has been delayed until 2004. They sort of accidentally told me about 5 of 5 on Friday, so I didn't get to do any melodramatic exit from the building in the middle of the day.

Well, today, I sit in on a meeting were I find out we're going to be going to an online document storage system for all our files. ALL our files. Everything from memos to blueprints. We have at least 75 entities, some of which have been around for 20 years.

I can only imagine how they're going to phrase it when they dump this project in my lap. "Well, since you're not doing the OneSite stuff this year..."

I don't WANT to be a file jockey...

So HA!

The 'new boss controller guy' just came by as asked me if we have a report that does X.

I say, "Nope, the new software that we're not going to use could do that, but the stuff we're on now won't. Sorry!"

New Sunday Photo Outing...

Arlington - St. John's Cemetery. I have some bizarre fascination with taking pictures of religious stuff.



10 out of 24! My percentages are going up. Although it's hard to take bad pictures in New England in the Fall. :)
