After working Saturday I was sure that hazy glow in the distance was light…but within an hour of arriving at the office today I realized it was an hallucination.
I don’t know who designed the software for these electronic grant submissions but I wish they had actually put together a grant before creating the program. I don’t have a problem with the fact that I’m limited in the amount of data I can uplaod but could you maybe give me an actual number?
Oh….and maybe some support that has actually used the program and can find out why I’m getting an error as opposed to telling me to try another (untested) approach “and if that doesn’t work, I don’t know what to tell you.”
I have a deadline, you’re supposed to help me meet that deadline. I have done everything I can possibly do to reduce the size of the grant, including deleting appendices and reworking the documents to remove or change references to said appendices, and you don’t know what to tell me. Brilliant!
Thank Goddess I worked the past two weekends to get this together for early submission or the deadline would have long passed. I still have a few days to get this off but based on the past couple weeks, I’m getting very concerned, and nervous. I’m sure it will get in on time but the process is terribly trying. It shouldn’t be this hard once the writing is complete. Keep your fingers crossed.
In other news…I was able to enjoy some downtime yesterday and took the dog and his buddy to the river for a swim. I also made it to the Tomato Festival the previous weekend (on my way into the office) so I do have some positive things to blog about. I’ve even had a few minutes here and there to try and catch up with the blogroll so, maybe that wasn’t an hallucination after all and I’ll soon be emerging from this darkness.
Oh…and did I mention the shopping in Seattle a few weeks ago?
…who could resist?
