Friday Foolery #27: Work-Life (Balance?)

The night before the MLA Work-Life Balance webcast (which I was a site coordinator for, couldn't take typed notes to share), I dreamed that I was the host of webinar using Adobe Connect. This is nothing unusual, in fact part of my regular job duties, but in the dream there was a continuous odd noise that kept disturbing the presenter's discussion. There's a little icon next to the participants' names that identifies if someone is making noise so I can mute individuals if necessary, but if it's just under a certain volume it won't show up and that was the case here. I was frustrated that I couldn't figure out the ruckus and was beginning to get agitated, then woke up.

My beloved husband was snoring.

I laughed.

I currently do not have work, life, or any other type of balance because right now things from every area are uncertain and up in the air at once. I'm hopeful that by the end of April things will be a bit more clear. At times like these my family, cake & humor are my modi operandi. An example:

No, I did not eat a Smurf, but had cake during a staff meeting with blue frosting balloons.

I first emailed the picture to my beloved while I knew he was at lunch & he replied ROFL, not something I was expecting in email! Our son exclaimed AWESOME! when he got home from school & saw it. 9 friends on Facebook have thumbs up 'liked it'. Another colleague saw me in the hall, smiled, and asked if my tongue was still blue so I was perfectly justified in sticking it out at him.

It's the little things.
