Rain, Rain, go away…

I know I should not complain about the rain. It is warm outside and the snow has almost all disappeared. I am not able to go out and enjoy the weather anyway and so perhaps I should say Hurrah for the rain! Except that it has been a dreary and grey day. I much prefer sunshine, even if I can only look at it through my condo windows.

I have been working pretty steadily all day studying for my exam. Except I had a relatively low productivity morning. I was having a hard time focusing and kept finding other things which needed attention -- like twittering and reading some stuff from The Onion (more on that tomorrow). However the opposite was true this afternoon and I pretty much worked steadily going through the stuff and I did finish today the sections I had earmarked on my study plan – the Chapter on Project Scope Management and Project Time Management.

Ok, so that is the good news. The bad news is that when I did the review of the material studied last week I was not happy with how much I had retained and decided I have to put more time into the boring task of memorization. So I am going to work just a little longer tonight and work 8 instead of 6 hours on this stuff tomorrow.

Not fun – but what can I say. I am finding that it takes me longer to learn stuff than it did --I hate to say how many -- years ago when I was a full time student. Maybe it is the fact that I have been having brain draining work weeks or maybe it is just harder to apply myself, not sure. I could complain that it is because I am not having enough fun -- I always agreed with the principal of "Work Hard - Play Hard" and maybe I have not played hard enough this week. LOL

A bit of a news update on Laura, she did not get her cast on this morning due to a misunderstanding on her part regarding the time she should arrive, so she has to get there at 7:30 a.m. tomorrow. She had arrived at 10 ish thinking she could go at any time after 7:30 – which was not the case. She is still in pain and taking Tylenol #3s. The real heart break of it is that it seems she will certainly need a week off and maybe more – can she waitress with a cast on? Will her employer want to pay a gimpy waitress? I don’t know. She was very unhappy when I talked to her this evening. Even before this happened she was having a great deal of difficulty paying bills. I am suspecting my 2nd bedroom will not be vacant for long.

I must confess at this point that I have no brain cells left to blog further. I have planned to spend another 45 minutes memorizing some of the key points from todays review and must get back at it. After that – I am going to treat myself with a listen to a few new TED talks – I have a bunch bookmarked for listening and look forward to sitting back with a glass of wine and listening to some interesting ideas. There are a few funny ones – I also intend on getting a few chuckles in!

Have a great Saturday night all!

  1. Really sorry about your daughter. Looking forward to hear how she is doing. Funny to read that Mom had to come to the rescue. Happens to me whenever one of my kids gets into a 'situation'. Reminds you that even though you only have a limited lease term on a kid, they have a life long subscription to your services...
