...into fall, and I know the holidays (with the birthday bonanza - all four of us Rogovins have birthdays within three months from late October to late January) are nearly upon us.
I need to make a separate post for knitting updates - lilith is finished, but I haven't been able to photo yet. And I cast on a gray bulky-weight (for the Grey's Anatomy premier last night) and have made good progress. Look for an update on Sunday (or Monday!).
In non-knitting news (yes, I still have non-knitting news!):
Tuesday - Much knitting and finished what I started of the Grey's season 3. Decided I have no interest in Private Practice - good thing since it conflicts with Sara's new show Gossip Girl.
Wednesday - I really did enjoy the Georgia Tech Math Department focus group. The Math Department is designing a new home page for their website (good thing, huh?!) and about 10 alumni were invited to share our thoughts about the two prototypes. I always leap at any opportunity to visit the campus ... but one that includes dinner with Katie is a real winner. I picked her up about 8:00 and we headed to Baraonda where we enjoyed a nice meal of appetizers and salads and some wonderful catching up on the new apartment. Of course we had our picture taken.
(more knitting stuff when I got home...late night)
Thursday - Dead tired after the late Wednesday night. But hosted an inspiring "so long, fiscal year 2007" pizza lunch for my team [Hewitt's fiscal year ends September 30 and my team has nailed nearly every objective for the year - yes, very cool!]. Everyone had to share an accomplishment for 2007, a personal goal for 2008 and a team business goal for 2008. It's an understatement to say my team impressed me. They bowled me over. And inspired me to be a better leader and a better manager. Can't ask for more than that from something I get paid to do! Then I had the best intentions of staying up for the entire Grey's season 4 premier episode (so I could fully participate in my new KAL - of course that's knitting, so no more details now), but realized at 9:40 that I'd snoozed through the last 10 minutes and gave up for bed. bummer.
Friday - Kick ASS day at work - finished everything that was urgent, got a good start on many things that were important, and really appreciated this view - a job I'm very glad I do not have:
(funny, don't remember taking this picture on such an angle! ...this is the reflected view from one side of my office while the window washers were washing the other side - I'm sure I completely freaked them out when I pulled out my camera!)
Then got home in time for a pedicure with Sara. And found this in the mail:
(yes, four orchestra level seats for the Johnny Mathis concert!)
Now looking forward to the 2-day walk with Karen - starting early tomorrow and finishing Sunday afternoon. 30 miles. Plenty of time for catching up. ♥
