20 days until Christmas. I'm too busy this week to even care! A few things taking all my time at work and beyond:
Payment Applications need to be delivered to our clients by the 10th generally. When the 10th falls on a Sunday, I've lost some serious days. I always cut off receiving invoices in the mail on the 5th, and this really crunches things for me this week. I am SWAMPED. I will be working through lunch and late into the night every night until I'm finally done. Friday should be much better, since they better be ready for my boss to deliver by Friday morning.
Payables. In the construction industry, many lumber and hardware companies have invoices due by the 10th. The mail has been pouring in, since we have a lot of big jobs going right now. This causes me to have to process and pay payables, cutting way into my payment application process.
Drawing. I'm plugging away, and it's gonna be good, I think/hope. Unless some tragedy occurs, like my house starting on fire. Or a roof leak directly above the drawing where it waits for me. Or I lose my hand or eyesight. These are valid concerns ~ don't laugh. I plan to be done with it this weekend so I can deliver it to them on Monday. The extra money will be nice.
Putting up the decorations and tree tonight. This could be tricky, as I'm thinking I really need to be doing payment application stuff (bring home stuff) during that time. The family WILL NOT understand, so I won't do it. Tomorrow will suck!
Birthday party for my youngest on Saturday. This will only be a couple hours at a ceramic studio where they can have the entire party and paint the Christmas snowman mug she picked out. Fun times...I will have to not worry about drawing and enjoy myself.
If you are wondering why I'm taking time away from work to post this...just shut up. It only took me 3 minutes to type. Typing is what I do.
