Dear Santa

My xmas list is growing: 1) dumpster in the driveway, 2) that turkey platter (you know the one), 3) TIME TURNER!

Please Santa, can you give me a time turner for xmas? I have had the clunkiest week at work in I don’t know how many months. I mean, it is all okay. I’m not in trouble or anything. I just wish I could rewind about the whole last week and do it over again. You don’t want the long story. The short story is that I was working on a particularly gnarly little spec last week and I was having more than the usual bit of trouble pulling the bitsy little details together when I was yanked off by some sort of space capsule (it was green and there were frogs on it and that’s all I know). All of a sudden I was in the Yooperland aaaaannnd I had to miss a meeting on Friday. The person who took notes for me is wonderful but he/she missed a few very picky little details and now that I am back, I have spent the whole week going back and forth with the CRD about those details, which I have [sort of] gotten wrong. If I had been able to dial in to the meeting, I would have made everybody slow down and work through the whole thing (and the CRD would’ve been with me on that) and my spec would have been correct in the first place… Instead… I am having to eat crow over and over and over again. Yes, CRD, you are right. Blah blah blah. I like to stay just a bit ahead of this particular developer. Not this week. Oh well.

The Commander is well. She was released from the hoosegow today and is “home” at FV. And this woman is POPULAR! Hoosegow visitors up the wazoo! Friends from town and hospital workers who know her from previous visits.

The photooo is from a short little trek over by the Reedsburg Dam the Friday of Thanksgiving weekend. Gorgeous warm sunny day, the kind of day that makes you think that winter will never arrive…

    KW eating crow? No no no. Not crow. Your colleagues know. The problem “spec” was Just a hiccup from your usual brilliant performance. Head high, dear KW!

    I hate when things don’t go according to plan; it makes me feel inadequate. You sound like you have a healthy attitude about it all. Dumpster in the driveway? It would make your flinging WAY easier. 😉

    She got a little list, a very little list, a list of gift ideas for Christmas that maybe Santa missed.
