work panic, blouse, shoes and Transformers

This week has been a roller coaster ride of emotions brought about by work and some personal matters.

While I was busy performing my duties, other concerns from clients would just come up... others easy to address while some would take much of my time. The lowest point of my work week was when I found out that nearly 4,000 records in 93 databases could have been lost. It called for an emergency meeting, at least with a colleague friend whose department I also coordinate with. I have to admit I panicked, my mind tried sorting out excuses I can use, but decided I just had to ask the respondents to take the survey again. It might not be easily acceptable for the client, but that's the only honest way we can work around it. This incident bugged my husband, too, that he ended up inviting me to leave the office earlier to relax and see the movie Transformers. I didn't buy it! It's something that would work for him, not me. But then again, he knows best how to get me... so, he bribed me with a bit of shopping treat... for a blouse at first, to which I also declined. But he was insistent, so he added it up with a pair of shoes. And that I couldn't resist anymore. So to little shopping and Transformers movie we went.

Highest point of the week? The tech support responded promptly saying that the data have not been lost! :)) Oh! I am so relieved! Thank God.

So, thank God it's Friday! My data are intact, another blouse and pair of shoes added to my closet, and I have seen an entertaining movie! :)

Hope you have a happy weekend! :)
