So Behind

by Meghann on January 7, 2011

I’m so behind this morning!

Pressing snooze too many times…

Forgetting my gate key on my run…

Responding to one too many e-mails before hopping in the shower…

Ordering photography lights off of Amazon…


I really need to get some work done.

Here’s the lowdown.


…ran 3 miles on the treadmill while catching up on the morning news.

… ate a big bowl of cereal that included Kashi Go Lean, Rice Krispies, Uncle Sam Cereal, Vanilla Yogurt, Strawberries, and Fig Jam.



….came to work.

….shed a tear when I saw the posting for my job went up on CareerBuilder last night and started reading all the resumes flooding in. This is really happening!

Better get some real work done now.

Happy Friday everyone!!

Love the strawberries! I miss them. We have them at the grocery store but I would prefer organic. I also love that you mixed cereals. I’ve never done that! It sounds good though, will have to try it. Have a great day! 🙂

Should be fun to analyze all those resumes. Are you the one who gets to hire your replacement?

3 kristy @ January 7, 2011 at 9:58 am

Hang in there! You’ve got great things coming your way.

P.s jam in cereal –> good idea

Haven’t had a chance to say before but congratulations on your new career path. Going freelance can be tough but nothing beats the feeling of freedom 🙂

Go you!

Have you tried Kashi Go Lean Crisp Berry Crunch? I am obsessed with the cereal! It is incredible. It’s on sale at Target starting on Sunday and there are some $1.00 off coupons floating around. So the box will be cheap! 🙂

I actually went to my Target yesterday with coupons in hand and they didn’t have any! I’m trying another Target tonight though 🙂

You sure have had a crazy week! Maybe you can relax this weekend? Yeah right!

So good things all around in my mind – your job will go on to someone who needs it…and you get to pursue your dreams! 😀

I have those days all the time…minus the shopping for photography lights 🙂

Hope the rest of your day is a little more relaxed!

Reading resumes should at least be entertaining.

You got tons of stuff done today so far! Mine just included packing for my weekend to Otown…then walking the dog…and dreading work.

16 Beth @ DiningAndDishing January 7, 2011 at 10:26 am

I’d love to see a review of the photography lights once you get them up and running! 🙂

I remember before we moved to Jax and still lived in Gainesville…they put a job notice up on craigslist just hours after I gave notice, and I was there during the whole selection and training process. It was really weird and kind of sad, because I did like that job, but I have to say – my life has been infinitely better since I took the jump and made some serious changes to my life. It’s full of hard work (school, work, etc.), but I’m pursuing a career I can’t wait to start and am currently in a job I love. It’s totally worth it. 🙂

Don’t shed a tear of sadness… good things are coming your way!

I’ve always wondered if the jobs on career builder were actually legit. After college, I’ve had major trouble finding a job. I’m kind of stuck in a place (and have been here for a while) I’m not fond of and I’m not doing anythign near what I would like to be doing. I’ve been looking, but have found that on most job sites like careerbuilder and monster it seems like all the jobs are scams.

22 Marina January 7, 2011 at 11:05 am

Don’t be afraid or sad, you are going to be amazing at your future job, specially your own business! I just know it 😉

I just woke up, so I’m more behind than you are. Congratulations on your new opportunities, at least some one who needs it will get your job while you get to pursue something you love.

How surreal the careerbuilder thing must have been! Yes, it’s really happening…congrats and it’s a fantastic change for you! 🙂

27 Maryann January 7, 2011 at 11:28 am

Oh gosh that must have been so hard to see others applying to your job position! But you are moving on to bigger and better things so its all good right 🙂

Does your job description sound harder than your actual job? I always thought the job description made my previous jobs sound so much more complicated than they actually were!

29 Meghann January 7, 2011 at 2:40 pm

It’s funny – I started reading the description and I’m like ‘man, I’m qualified to do all that’ Well, duh ! that has been ur job for the last few years. 😉

Your breakfast looks lovely! My morning has been super rushed as well – productive, but much busier than I like my Fridays to be! Hope you can get a chance to relax tonight!

I hate mornings that start like that. They usually work out okay anyway, but the sense of rush it creates isn’t fun. 🙁
