Well, the worst of my fiscal year-end nightmare is over. This is the first time I've gone through a year-end in this position (yeah, go ahead, insert gay joke here). It wasn't smooth, to say the least. I feel badly for my team, suffering through my inexperience - but, as I told them, I learned a lot, and know what to do differently next year.
I'm still going in to work at ridiculous hours (around 6 a.m. is the norm these days). But I'm leaving at a realistic time - usually 5:00. So they're long days, but I can still get home in time for dinner.
Tomorrow is Scooter's birthday!!! I bought him a ______ and a _______. Nothing fancy, but I hope he likes them. Our favorite restaurant is closed on Mondays, so I'm going to make him dinner. Maybe he'll be surprised and get ______, too.
Oh, and a very Happy Birthday to Scott, too!!!!!
