it is year end at my job. If you don't know what that means then you have absolutely no idea how draining my job is right now.

What does that mean for Amanda? That means that every single deal I have on my list that can possibly get paid by Friday has to get paid out so everyone gets credit for it for the year...the customer, broker, sales rep, vendor. It's all about taxes.

So instead of getting one or two deals to my funding dept a day, I have a total of 20 deals to get there by Friday and that does not include any deals coming in the mail tomorrow or Friday that I do not know about. It's about 5 times more work per day. The amount of work that I have to do between now and Friday most likely will not get done unless there is someone that can help me out. There is not enough time in one day for me to do it all. I could have stayed longer but I couldn't add anything anymore so I left.

This week is my Christmas season, back to school, and whatever the hell else rolled into one. It's the absolute busiest week of the year and I can't think straight. Didn't help that my partner could care less and calls in all the time. Unfortunately for her, today might have been the nail in the coffin. I don't think she's going to have a pleasant morning tomorrow. She left a voice mail for me this morning saying she really didn't have anything pending and that she'll get to it tomorrow. Nothing pending but 10 deals that needed to be completed and get to funding. I got about 1/4 of her deals done in between working on my 20.

So........this is my week.

I don't give it much thought though.

I enjoy my job and I realize I am lucky to have it. And I have takem close to $4000 in pay cuts in the last year!

I try not to talk about it here though.
so does that mean that I can't talk about here or that I can't be incredibly fried after a long day?

Good evening Randooomers

Co-workers who call in sick and make everyone else work twice as hard

I have heard through the grapevine that there has been much overtime available at my office during the past week but I put the 'dont even think about calling me' note on my call-out card.

That sounds cool. I really need to get the Art Museum here and see the Renoir exhibit....maybe I will do that on my extra day off next week. It's been awhile since I've been there.

N, a few randoomers met her, and her mum were in Guatemala for two weeks and just got home~Her tour bus was hijacked by men with AK-47's and they were all forced to get off the bus, they were tied up and told to lie down face down on the ground with their eyes shut TIGHTLY. They were robbed, the bus driver was beaten and a guatemalan tour guide was sexually assaulted.....
There is more to the horror that I will hear about on New Years Eve. I stood there in the store shaking and hugging her and her mom about 7 times.......she hasn't slept well because all she can see are these men and Ak-47's and I want to throw up.
