I.Crack.Myself.Up. Which, given my current situation, is good - I have a lot of time on my hands. Anyway, I've been rather engrossed in Employment Law and HR Policy in preparation for a meeting with a firm on Thursday. I've written sexual harassment policy, outlined discrimination in hiring and employment practices, dealt with the ADA's stance on recovering addicts in the workplace... ok, so you get where my head is.
Anyway, after having the "Worst.Date.Ever" in the last couple of weeks, it becomes apparent that I need to end relations with a new acquaintance. I really don't have the time, nor the privacy (I had a one-on-one time with my eldest this weekend - we needed some Mommy/Daughter bonding time) to talk with him on the phone... and truthfully, that date set aside, I'm not in the mood to meet someone new right now. It's too much work and my head is elsewhere, given the employment sitch. So what do I do? I send him an email that SMACKS of HR:
"It has been lovely getting to know you. While I've enjoyed spending time with you over the last few weeks, it has come to my attention that given my current situation; I really have neither the time, nor inclination, to give this new relationship the effort it requires and deserves. As I am unclear when I will be able to do so, I think it is best at this point to withdraw my attentions so you can focus yours elsewhere. Please understand that this is in no way meant to be a direct reflection on your person; indeed, it was a decision based solely on where I find myself in my life at this time. Between my family obligations, the maintainence of my current friendships and my employment situation; I simply do not have the ability to pursue this relationship further. I wish you the best in your future endeavors."
Um, maybe it's time to get my head out of the Labor Laws and Human Resources books???
In other news, Lindsey and I had a lovely weekend. We had breakfast in bed, we watched movies, we played games, we read together, we went to the park with Amanda/Maddox and Eric/Dylan and watched Cars Saturday night (which, by the way guys, was keen fun - thanks!). Really, this might have been one of the better weekends I've had as of late.
Now for the rant: dry cleaning is rediculously expensive. And the ratio of dry cleaning that I have as a chick in comparison to my guy friends is just flat out unfair.
