The Weekend Is Almost Here (For Me)

Last night I had dreams about placing work orders for a particular client. I remember that, in the dream, I was constantly going back and trying to get the order placed correctly: it needs to be this - wait, no, let's do this again, it needs to be this. It was very, very weird. It was like my brain was trying to get "it" right, but "it" didn't really have a clear definition.

Today is my last day before two days' vacation - which means a four-day weekend - woo hoo! I always handicap myself, however, because the day before vacation I've gotta scramble to make sure any loose ends get tied up, and the whole day winds into a big stress - as is evident from my dream.

I shouldn't be so uptight about this stuff, though. I take my client servicing waaaay too seriously. But I need to remember that I have a backup person - and while that person might not be as anal as I am with orders, he gets the stuff handled. So whatever doesn't get done today he can handle tomorrow. Sounds easy, right?

Anyways, I'm really looking forward to the long weekend. Thursday I have some errands to run, but other than that things should be fun. I'm going with Erik to his paternal-side family reunion in Palm Springs on Saturday - that should be only mildly painful. And then on Sunday we're going to go to the California Science museum, or a small number of museums near USC. Not quite sure. And maybe a movie or two will get thrown into the mix. Sleeping in is gonna be nice.

i'm sure that it will be more than mildly painful when the Lutefisk is served. :)
