Assorted updates

I am still fighting with the flex spending company to get them to reimburse my $250 OTC medication/supplies bill. Now my HR rep has gone radio silence too. GEEZ.

I had a fairly traumatic/sad week, which is kind of ridiculous in a way because nothing happened to ME, just to someone that I know. It's still really upset me; hence my disappearance from non-scheduled posts and Twitter. On the upside, I have been extremely productive at work to try to keep my mind busy.

I have a really unique opportunity coming up at work that I'm excited about. I've been taking a lot of training sessions and seminars, and I feel like I'm getting to a very cool point and about to take it to the next level (how's that for a lot of corporate speak?!).

I've been culling my RSS reader, removing blogs I always skim past or don't care about reading. Twitter has introduced me to too many excellent blogs to read two-sentence updates that only come every other week. My goal is to get to the point where I can check blogs only two or three times a week and not be overwhelmed.

Long weekend coming up! I plan to read The Passage -- what are you doing?

  1. Hope I make the cut! But I feel like I need to start making cuts too. I'm getting a little overwhelemed by all the blogs, but I do love everyone's stories.

  2. I feel the same way about my Reader. There's just not enough time in the day to work, go to class, do homework AND read all the great blogs that are out there. I'm keeping the ones whose stories I'm most interested in. I find that I'd rather hear someone's story than "tips to save money."

    I don't think we have anything planned this weekend. I need to get my class reading done for school. Can't get behind after only half a week! Borrrring, but it has to be done. :)

  3. You and me both. I just cut something like 100+ blogs...
