I’m not sure how it began or when, but we had a major leak in the museum. The compressor in the water fountain upstairs had gone out and caused water to collect within the wall and eventually drip down to the basement. It had been going on long enough for mold to start to grow. It was quite a mess. Uniforms and hats had major water damage. We got all the wet pieces out and into the freezer. Now we wait for insurance and a conservator to tell us the cost of this water leak.
Yesterday, I got up at 5:30, and was on the go from that minute on. I had a presentation to work on and a tour to give. Then I had various odds and ends to deal with. It was quite hectic. After I got home, I cooked dinner and then it was back to the office for the last bit of my museum studies class. I have to write a critique of some presentations and then I’ll have my museum studies certificate.
The tooth doesn’t hurt and the root canal was not too bad. However, it hurts where he gave me the shots, especially the pain blocker he put in my jaw. It’s no longer blocking the pain. I have to go into work today regardless of the pain. Everyone else is off today, so I’m the only one in the office. Hopefully, I’ll get a lot done. I need to work on my museum studies class. I’ve got a lot to do, because I’ve gotten a little bit behind, but I’ll get caught up. I have to figure out though how I’m going to record my elevator speech that is due this week. It should be a busy day today so hopefully it will go by quickly,
Yesterday was just a normal day back at work. I took the morning off because Monday had been such a long day, but the afternoon was your average work day. I answered emails and phone messages. I organized my desk. Helped file some stuff. Nothing out of the ordinary. Just a ho hum day. I suspect today will be much the same.
Tuesday night, I fell asleep writing my post. I’m doing my best right now to stay awake to write this one. Normally it’s not an issue, but yesterday was an exceptionally long day at work. I got to work around 7:30 am and didn’t leave until around 8:30 pm. It was a productive day, especially since I finally secured a speaker for a grant-based November event. We received a grant with the understanding that we do a program of some kind, it didn’t matter the topic. So after a lot of possibilities that turned out, for one reason or another, not to be viable, I’ve finally found someone who not only is available, but also willing.
It should be back to a regularly scheduled week this week. Last week was a bust. The only day I was able to go into work was Friday and that was not a full day. I’m feeling better. I’m almost over this cold. I have a ton of stuff to do this week. Next week, I’ll be in Texas visiting my best friend. That means I’ve got a lot of stuff to do this week.
I’m on my way to New York City. I am so excited. Not only do I get to see one of my dearest friends, but I get to go to New York for the first time. I’ve been wanting to go since I moved to Vermont, and everyone keeps telling me I should go. So, now I’m going. I’m really looking forward to seeing the Met. There will be no Broadway shows this time. Hopefully, there will be next time when we come back in June. This time, the main reason for going is to check out the site of our traveling exhibit which will be there in a June. It’s not all play and no work. There will definitely be some work involved.
Today will be a busy day. We have one of the public programs that I’ve organized. It will be a panel discussion, and I will serve as moderator. I’ll spend the morning working on my part as moderator, and the afternoon will be spent getting ready to be away for the next two days. Our program is at lunch if you were wondering.
Tomorrow, I go to New York for four days. I get to spend some time with one of my dearest friends and I am so excited. It’s not all play though. Tomorrow and Friday will be working days. We have two museums where we have business to handle. We will be back in New York in June, and we are scoping out the place where our traveling exhibit will be first.
Today, it’s back to work. I know I’ll be flooded with emails, and I have a few things to catch up on. It will be a busy day. In fact, I expect it to be a busy week. I will only be in the office three days before I go to New York City for work on Thursday and Friday. Our next traveling show will be in New York in June, and we are going down to assess the exhibit space. While I’d rather stay on vacation, I’m actually looking forward to a busy and exciting week ahead.
