As I am getting ready to leave for Knoxville for the next two days, I find myself in a frenzy to tie up all loose ends...from a chaotic, crazy busy day at work to a cooking/cleaning whirlwind at home. It is past midnight and I have just finished my work schedule for next week. With almost 30 people to schedule, sometimes this can be difficult, especially when there are requested days off or I have trainees from other stores. I should also mention that my Microsoft Excel's trial period just expired, so I found out after finishing the schedule completely and saving it, it reverted back to the original completely unfinished schedule. Ahhhhhhh!!! I have so much to do in the morning: taking dog out, getting kids to school, finish packing, go to work and see if the finished schedule I sent to my work e-mail came through correctly...this all needs to be done by 8am, because that is when I need to be on the road towards Knoxville. Wasn't one of my resolutions to have less stress in 2011. Hmmmm??? So after I got home from work and picking up rental car/kids at 5:30pm, I had to bake my Vegan choc chip banana bread as well as some vegan avocado choc chip cupcakes. The family needs snacks while I am away.
