The Week So Far

"How was your trip?" my boss asked me on Sunday morning as we walked together to our first meeting of the day.

"It was great!" I replied enthusiastically. "We went to th-"

Right there she cut me off.

"Listen," she said. "Later. There's a lot going on that you need to know about."

And from that moment on, my first week back at work became a mad scramble of phone calls and emails to Washington and press releases gone awry and ohdearlord how many emails are in my in-box, anyway?

I need a vacation.

Remind me some time to tell you the story about how yesterday I was pretty sure the Secretary of State himself was going to fire me. Yes: I'm that good at my job.

Okay but I still kind of secretly love my job. When I'm not busy hating it.

If I could just figure out how to feed my kids and do my job and sleep maybe 7 straight hours, all in a single 24 hour period, my life would be pretty darn good.


Please. Write your own stuff.
