I really know now what all work and no play is no good. And I can attest the sleep deprivation is inhumane. Let's see, I went to work on Saturday with my shirt on inside out! Good thing it was only me and another girl. It made for good comic relief. I warned everyone at work weeks ago and I begged everyone at work to just leave me alone explaining the attention to detail needed on the project. Long about Thursday, and no less than ten stupid interruptions in a half hour.......like....Robin, do you know the printer is out of ink?, or better, Robin, IT put in the toner in the printer! or the copier is out of paper, or what time does this morning's meeting start? or everyone that thinks they need to stop with their coffee and muffin and tell me office gossip. Really? They all think their interruption is worthy of being a $10M interruption........so I locked the office door...... needless to say, 2 minutes later when my girlfriend wiggled the the door handle, rapped on the window I was not a happy camper....and what does a sleep deprived, super stressed, incredibly burdened person do..... I stormed across the room and flung (and I mean flung!) open the door and firmly (maybe a little loudly) stated...."Is the building on fire? Otherwise I can't imagine why......." and then I see that there is an officer of the company with a question. Oops! Good thing is that everyone on the third floor kept their distance the rest of the day.

Getting by with a nightly glass of Pinot Noir (a new love that I was introduced to a few years ago) and leaving the TV on a night to drowned out the constant numbers and reminders and questions running at warp speed through my head, it's a bedroom sanctuary for me now that it is minus the cat's dish and litter box.
