Work Fun

It looks like it's going to be one of those weeks. Yesterday we got a letter from a one of our main funders. It went something like: Since you didn't meet a crazy deadline (that your director's predecessor created with no basis) 6 weeks ago (while I was on maternity leave) we will start retracting your funding (the basis of my annual salary) if you don't meet crazier deadline in 1 week.

So for the next week it looks like I'll be back to at least 12 hour days for the next week. At minimum. We're pulling one of the assistants off of another project with a deadline 1 week later, so I'll probably be pitching in so the other program manager meet her deadlines.

On the plus side I get to meet 25 or so people my organizations just gave scholarships to later this week. I just have to figure out what I'll be telling them.

That's awful--and you have kids? I can't imagine pulling 12 hours days with kids. Hang in there. :)

At the moment it's just my husband and father in law, so at least on the family front things are pretty easy. Another plus is I can do some of it from home, so yesterday I started making calls from home at 7:30, went in eventually, came home, and worked for a few more hours.
