So I am tired.
I am still trying to work on my thing with money. May has not been on track so far. I had a graduation and a birthday and another graduation and Mothers Day. Expensive. I had a hair appointment, which I save for in a sinking fund, but I also ran out of foundation and lipstick and eye shadow, all at once. Since I wear make up every day to work, and there would be pictures at graduations, this was an expense I had to live with. There were also numerous doctors appointments to find out what is wrong with my back, and co-pays for this (so grateful to have medical insurance, you have no idea).
There were two road trips, and in at least one of them I stood up on stage in front of 7000 people and hammed it up. Thank you Dave Ramsey fans, for cheering and laughing. That was awesome.
I am excited by Digital Preservation. I am working on a presentation I can then market to local libraries. Which does not pay (yet). I am also working on a brochure design for the Lithuanian Archive Project. Which does pay, once I get it done.
In the middle of all this, my boss announced she was resigning. And that they would not replace her. So our department is being absorbed into another. And the dreaded word restructuring came out. So there has been dealing with that, and all the uncertainty. And some job applications.
This weekend there is a NATO Summit in Chicago. And I work downtown, plus in the Financial District, specifically. Protests and violence and possibly terrorist plots are expected. No joke. Security is tightening up. I am taking Monday off so I don't have to try and brave the commute.
And now we are coming on Summer.
It's an exciting time! But I really want a nap.
