I love it when a plan comes together...

Well, the party has passed, and i no longer have to deal with the daily changes. A great stress has been lifted. The party went well, and so did the fund raising. now i get to focus my attention on more planning...i guess that is the problem with working in the S3 shop. I think i should accept that my job is plans...and like the A-team, myself and my co-workers have a lot of work to do-I love it when a plan comes together!

Long time, many adventures

work has been incredibly busy. my partner in crime has started school in the afternoons, so i am left with a lot more afternoon work. it has been an adjustment, but i think that i am coping well enough. there has been a lot going on here at work, most of which i am not allowed to discuss in this forum, but others i can. i have been the primary coordinator for the company party. i never realized how much added stress party planning (on a very limited budget) could be. no wonder people pay for planning services. unfortunately for me, i am paid-and the commander sees that as enough compensation.
Battalion keeps coming up with last minute changes, but expects us to plan 8 weeks out. it really throws a wrench in the works, and makes for a very difficult planning effort. i wish that they would stick to the same timelines that they are imposing on us. it would really make for a fluid transition.
I am really ready for some time off, and, maybe, just maybe an early return to the fine State of Colorado. MO you can tenatively plan for a date around your birthday plus 2....but i will give you better hard times around the date.
I love you all and miss you very much.
