I got two more monkeys off my back yesterday. Feels good to be finally sorting things out. Those were both to do with friendships that had soured. I'm starting to get momentum up again which is good. One of the things it's helping with is clearing my inbox. I made massive inroads into that today. Next up is some finalisation of submissions to various TPP projects. And editing. And reviewing. And. And. And.
Work has been nice and easy this week. Slowly people are coming back in and so there's this steady trickle of people working through full inboxes and vaguely thinking they might send work my way. Rather than actually sending work my way. My promotion has gotten stalled in the management system. Hopefully there will be some progress tomorrow on that.
And I have been amusing myself in small ways. transcendancing brought me this lovely Starbucks mug back from Melbourne and gave it to me over the holidays. It's so pretty and just the right size for a flat white so I took it into work on Monday to keep me company. It's a collector's edition mug and really I should put it in the glass cabinet and save it but it's really pretty and feels like it should be used and it makes me happy just sitting on my desk. And maybe I should follow through on the using and enjoying things now thing I was blogging about and just continue using it.
