End of week/wrapping up

AISOT . . . tonight I'm full of pizza, watching Harry Potter & the Sorcerer's Stone with the girls, and catching up on laundry. It's a good (if predictable) start to a weekend.

When I got home from the office, I grabbed some pizza and we immediately took shelter in the basement. No, this wasn't some new Friday night ritual. The rain was coming down really hard and the tornado watch sirens went off. But by the time we got down there, only ten minutes remained in the watch. (The strongest storms move the fastest after all . . .) The time down there did allow me to sort through the mountain of dirty laundry overflowing the basket under the chute. So, now worries there--and no tornadoes either.

In work-related news, I've finished my most recent project and can now turn my thoughts and actions to the next two projects (one a smaller job that I am simply "consulting" on--meaning I am available for assistance while I direct others in the daily work; the other a much larger, much more complicated, more long-term project that is the focal point every decade or so). I came into my original career with this project and now I'm partly in charge. So, that's a good thing and a nerve-racking thing at the same time.

But I spent part of my afternoon cleaning up my cubicle in preparation--shifting out old files and making space for things to come. RA and I also had some fun preparing an empty cubicle near us as a sort of project work area--holding our extra books, materials, and things to be utilized later. We carefully taped down the center of the cubicle "Happy Days" style, dividing the cubicle in half. We've agreed to present a false front of intense rivalry between our two projects. But really, we'll both be awesome together.

If the rain ever ends this weekend, I've got some flowers to plant, grass to mow, and other things to do. But I also need to blog about books I'm reading, events I've attended, and whatever else comes to mind.

Stay tuned!

If one of you doesn't 'jelly' something belonging to the other or incrementally move the tape towards the other's half, I shame thee!
