It took me nearly the whole workday yesterday to complete one clinical trial invoice.  Nowadays, drug companies tend to want a separate invoice with documentation for each service provided during a clinical trial visit, whereas they used to just provide a lump sum for the completed visit.  I believe this is intended to save the drug company money, as many universities are lax with the financial aspect of drug studies and just never get around to invoicing.  Anyway, a whole day dedicated to one invoice is a lot, and it’s a great relief to be done with it.  Now I need to attend to all the email requests that I put on the back burner.

This is a holiday weekend in Utah, because a state holiday, Pioneer Day, falls on Monday.  It will be the last hurrah for summer fireworks, so we are taking the dogs and escaping to a motel in another town, where we hope it will be quieter.

I’ve been making good progress with my backlog of work projects, but then my email keeps delivering more projects.  I wish I could turn it off for a while.  Speaking of email, my archives went missing when the hard drive on my computer was replaced, and the IT dude has never come to fix it as promised.  I need to get that done but am too busy to sit around and twiddle my thumbs while he dinks around on my machine.  A dilemma….

We’ve been having late afternoon thunderstorms lately.  They make for some beautiful hikes.

Yesterday, I attended a meeting that was actually rather pleasant.  I walked there and back, about a mile each way, which was a mixed bag.  Although it was a gorgeous morning, the down side of walking in work clothes is that it makes for lots of sweat and blisters on the feet.  The meeting itself was a revelation.  There was not a single long-winded person in attendance, and we just stayed on task, solved problems, and ended 20 minutes early.  This is what all meetings should be like, but almost never are.

As predicted, chatty secretary was in full chat mode, and my attempts to project an unwelcoming aura were minimally successful.  However, I then delegated an onerous project to her, which had the dual benefit of freeing up some of my time and of keeping her too busy to chat.  I will have to do more of this in the future.

I was very pleased upon realizing yesterday morning that chatty secretary still had one more day out of the office.  However, the boss, who is currently in London, was busy with the emails over the weekend, and my inbox was boiling over with his excruciatingly involved messages and delegations.  I spent nearly the whole day on one particular new task and didn’t get to a single one of the things I wanted to complete.  Chatty secretary is back today and will no doubt want to discuss her recent vacation in great detail.  I will work on projecting a do not disturb aura.

I felt rather under-the-weather all weekend and was kind of dragging myself through the days.  I hope this doesn’t last much longer!

This is another bossless week, but the chatty secretary will be back today.  There is something about her that’s really bugging me, and I can’t put my finger on it.  Maybe it’s just the ongoing interruptions and being used as a target for her compulsive talking…???

I managed  feats of productivity yesterday and am feeling good about the accomplishment.  It’s the time of year when late-afternoon thundershowers fill the sky with rumbling clouds and cool off the heat, which makes for some nice hiking.

I scheduled an early August appointment for an assessment under a program called Power that is offered by the cancer center.  It’s a highly individualized exercise program for cancer patients that starts with a thorough assessment of things like heart strength, balance, flexibility, etc., and then provides a plan to help in reaching health goals, as well as regular support.  My goal is to return to – or exceed – my pre-cancer exercise levels.  It will be interesting to see how this goes.

All of these things occur with the never-ending background of our country’s rapid disintegration.  It’s all very surreal and often disturbing.

Today is meetingless, and very few people will be in the office.  My ultimate goal for the two weeks of bosslessness is to have everything done so that I can finally get to performance evaluations, and I am making good progress.  I must remain focused and make the most of the quiet time!

Yesterday’s massage was wonderful – a very nice way to start the day.  She work exclusively on my pirifomis muscles, which I didn’t even know existed.  They are small muscles that can get tight and cause lots of problems in the hips, lower back and legs.  The therapist thinks that I need to protect these muscles by focusing on holding in my belly and buttocks when walking.  Try it.  It’s not so easy to do!  I’m working on it, though.

I was a little distracted at work yesterday and didn’t accomplish as much as I could have.  Today I will buckle down and be a productivity ninja!
