It struck me about 1100 this morning that today is Friday, not Saturday. The long list of everything I needed to do prior returning to Craig Joint Theater Hospital for another run of PDHAs did not need to be finished in the next hour. I have (minus the time for a promotion ceremony) untill 1700.
Somehow the two days have gotten blurred together in my mind. Sometimes I think that the Battle update is this morning, other times I know it is tomorrow. I did get a solid six hours of sleep last night which was excellent. (If those jets flew 100 feet over my head, I obviously did not hear them). My panic level has dropped a bit, and I have managed to shovel out two of my desk drawers while steadily making my way through the projects which have piled up in my in-box. My to-do prior to departing theater has now stretched beyond the length of my arm. This is one time when being an ostritch would really bite me.
So anyway, I have this list of about 30 critical items none of which seem to change. None of which I can manage to finish. And, my retirement orders were wrong and still need to be fixed.
Any who – I have sometime this afternoon, prior to noon tomorrow, then I hit the road again till the end of next week.
