Delusions of Grandeur

I love the weekends

Posted on: February 28, 2004

Things are rather ridiculous at work right now, we just got our amendment for the focus group into the IRB and it should be approved on monday, which is good, because if it’s not approved on monday we have a nasty can of worms to deal with since the first focus group is scheduled for monday afternoon. Additionally we have a site visit that will be going on throughout wednesday and into thursday, the preparation for which has been driving me batty. To add to the madness, we have a six month progress report due at the end of March, which may sound like it’s a long ways away, but trust me, it’s not. We’re also in the middle of hiring a project coordinator, two interventionists and our recruitment/retention specialist…..only two of those people have been found so far and the candidate pool is getting pretty shallow at this point. We can’t finish writing the intervention manual until after the focus groups are finished which will likely be sometime towards the end of march and yet we’re supposed to start the intervention itself on the first of April…..somehow I don’t see that happening, but as the Chudley Cannons would say “cross your fingers and hope for the best.”

The good news is that it’s the weekend so I only have to spend a marginal amount of my time worrying about this…..the bad news is that I still have to worry about it since I’ve got to do some of the work sometime today, which I really don’t feel like messing with. In fact, this entire post has been one long attempt to put it all off…..a successful attempt at that. : ) I guess now I’ll wander off to find something else to waste time on and then maybe I’ll start working……..maybe.
