I needed a hand today…really I mean that!
Right now, I’m working my laptop and PC simultaneously. One has the PowerPoint on it; the other does not. One has the HP printer all in one; the other does not. One can print; the other cannot. I have cords, battery packs, and folders strewn across my office like Hurricane Ike just made landfall.
I did a PowerPoint for a presentation on leadership for Merck Pharmaceuticals (I just found out that it’s global and it’s a BIG deal). Oh, and there will be men there; I thought it was the "Merck Women’s Network."
What was I thinking?
So I changed all the “Hers” to “Him/Her” and made my “she” pictures into “he/she” pictures. Then I e-mailed it to the meeting planner.
It didn’t go through—not even in a zipped file—so now it’s going with my hubby tomorrow morning to be Next Day Air’d (I think that’s UPS).
See what I mean?
Take a deep breath, Connie!
No pressure, no pressure.
Oh, and then the meeting planner says, “This is a BIG deal!”
Okay, I say to myself. I know that already!
The problem: I’ll be returning from California on the red eye (there’s a reason why they call it that), and have to be in New Jersey bright and early that morning at the Merck Gate so they can give me clearance to get through the doors (maybe I’ll just spend the night at the airport).
And all this doesn't happen until October 8th (a lot can happen between now and then--right?).
I’m still here, wondering if I can figure out another way to keyboard with my TEETH!
If you don’t hear from me for a while, I’m plowed under, but I’ll resurface. Maybe tomorrow, if someone will just give me a hand!
