Busy Week!

Work was killer this week!

First on Wednesday our phones died for two hours. When your job primarily revolves around answering and transfering calls that is a big problem. It wasn't just our phones at the front desk though, all of our clients had no phone access either. Bad news bears indeed.

So Thursday has to be better right? You would think. Our internet was out. All day until 4:20pm. Man oh man were people pissed, and rightly so! How can a company not have a back up system??? In all fairness it was not our company's fault but the provider losing a giant server in Atlanta that we were somehow linked in with, but people were not too concerned with the reasoning, just the results! Ugh. We could do our job too well either. Our schedule for booking meeting rooms? Online. Our billing? Online. Luckily we had our outlook email up and running since it is operating on the server at our headquarters. Emailing clients, cancelling appointments... oh it was brutal.

Friday I thought had to be better! We came in early Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday to set up a beverage service (aka coffee) for a client, so I got some overtime doing that, but Friday I came in at normal time and had phone and internet! Then around 10am one of our clients came in with a project for me, also known as an Admin project. They pay the company for it, I do the work. He is a lawyer and just inherited a bunch of cases from another lawyer who just retired. He needed the papers relating to each case organized and re-filed. Man. Oh. Man. I had to divert from the phones to just do this project. I worked from 10am until 5:30pm finishing it. Loooong day. He was very nice and appreciative so I honestly did not mind doing the work, but it was Harry Potter Day! I had to get to the theatre!

I flew out of work and to the theatre, glad I got tickets ahead of time, and met Ryan, Russell, and Lauren. Russell and Lauren got their before us so they were in line and got us some good seats with them. The movie? Fantastic. I won't spoil anything, but I enjoyed it. Some things were left out but it could have been worse. I cried once. And now I cannot believe I have to wait until July for the next one!!!! Oy.

We're at the barracks now doing laundry. Being the adult I am I woke up at 8:30am and couldn't go back to sleep. So I watched the rest of one of my favorite movies (Under the Tuscan Sun), ran to the bank, and then grocery shopping. Go me.

Happy weekend!!!
