crying tears of blood…

10 Oct

It’s been one of those weeks….not actually badjust really really busy and finely tuned with no room for error. I know I am the one steering the ship…. and I am the one who can control my own ‘busy-ness’ level (to an extent) … yadayadaya… BUT the truth is I (mostly) thrive on a fairly high energy existence.

It’s just that this particular week has seen a bunch of deadlines and social commitments all collide in the space of a few days… so I had been just managing to keep all the balls in the air and things ticking along… that was,  UNTIL this afternoon.

After working on an 18page report for the past few days, I was all set to attach lost documentand send it (only a few hours PAST it’s deadline) …. and I LOST it ! I mean gone …vanished… evaporated somewhere into cyberspace.

With no-one to blame but myself,  I pulled in every favour I could, as well as contacting our I.T geeks and after about an hour of intense searching …it was concluded that I needed to start again… from scratch !!

The thing is, I KNOW what I did, and it was just a dumb rookie mistake ….so I  just had to suck it up and beg forgiveness…then move on.

No time for tears of blood in this busy life … I have visitors to entertain, a ball to attend, 2 essays to write, an exam to prepare for ….and world peace to solve in 3000 words …before Monday.

So I best get cracking ..I’m 50Something…but not dead yet.

    We must be riding the same continuum! I too feel in a period this week where everything has to be done perfectly with the most accurate timing possible, no room for error! When done at this level of perfection, the results are huge, if not, mopping up the mess can take 10 times as long. I sometimes feel like a brain surgeon with the kind of precision needed. But somehow I get there and when it has been done there is a real high that follows……hope all goes well for you too wonder years!

    Funny too – we lost a huge file too! A really critical one – but thanks too our IT geeks we are saved too!

      I hope this week brings success in the operating theatre for both of us.
