Oh Kitty. Where art thou?

Sorry for my absence the past week... I got two words:

Christmas.
and...
Work.

Trying to get everything I need done in time, especially all that is going to the east coast, I've not gotten to bed before 2 am the past 3 nights. And there was buying the Tree Last Friday and decorating it on Sat... (it only took 6 hours) and then shopping, a little more decorating, backing (12 dz cookies... so far) and decorating them, and preparing my annual Christmas CD, and wrapping presents and and and...

and... WORK!

Well work has been crazy-ass busy. I've not taken my lunch break in two weeks and most days not had a chance to even eat at my desk. I've accrued over 15 hours of overtime since the beginning of Dec. We've been so overwhelmed with the Reactor shut-down at Chalk Lake and the lack of isotope for our products for our clients. And just a little FYI... you'd think that the Government forcing the Reactor back on line is a good thing, well so far from many of the clients I spoke to... and that's Hospitals and Clinics all over Ontario... they think it's a bad idea. They should have left it down for two more weeks (including the week of Christmas when there is next to noooooooooooo activity in the Nuc Med depts. and use these next two weeks to finish up. Instead now we have to look forward to likely two more weeks of it shut down ... some time in 2-3 months ... when? don't know. Anyway I really ought not complain because I've not had any of my appointments cancelled...

So in a nut shell, I've been barely in front of the computer, outside of work... but that will change... :-)

Need me! Need me!

I have been busy as well.
Christmas shopping and planning our next vacation. We were not planning on going anywhere until end of June but since coming back to this freakin' cold we are now thinking of going away in March. Hey, when you can fly for our rate - why the heck not?? Anyone want to join us?? heh

Newsguy Bob said...

For your rate? Tell me more...

Misster Kitty said...

Yea what's OUR rate?

Maria said...

Much cheaper than any rate out there.

Family rate (meaning for our immediate family its dirt cheap until 2009 as there are no service fees until then - ONLY taxes).

Our guests who came along got to fly round trip from Montreal to Orlando for less than $200 bucks!
