Brrr, it’s so cold!!

May 30, 2007

Foggy gloom is marching ’round my window at work and matches my work mode perfectly today. I’m playing boot camp sargeant, making everyone work on projects according to my priorities because they clearly don’t understand that their other-topic conversations are wasting time and jettisoning any prayer we had of completing this project on time. I’m (we’re) down to missing the deadline by hours, and there’s not a thing I can do about it until these people, from Big Boss on down, get their dawdling doodads together and get their durned tasks DONE!

I’m not sure what’s worse: that their attention is STILL wandering after I’ve rudely interrupted their conversation and sent them back to work, or that Big Boss thinks I enjoy being slavedriver to these big babies!

To tell the truth, being bossy is boring. I can’t do anything else until they get their work done, so I’m just setting ’round waiting to crack the whip on the next hapless fool who interrupts Little Boss with a “good” excuse to stop working on his part of the project.

On the other hand, I’ve got my heater going full blast and I’m trying to untangle/understand PearBudget’s analysis. It starts the counter for the month in the negatives, and then either works its way to positive with income, or muddles around in the negatives throughout the month if spending matches the income. If savings is a “regular expense” line item, does that mean not saving as much as planned is a negative or positive as calculated in the analysis? It’s calculated as an expense, so wouldn’t that actually show up as a positive because it’s not “spent”? Hummm ….
