A quick recap of our last week, at which point you'll understand why this has to be quick.
8am: husband left for weekend trip to Maryland
2pm: had a meeting with my advisor in which I was asked to write up the proposal for a third paper in less than a week
5pm: discovered that our daycare provider thought she had 7 weeks of paid vacation time in her contract, which was not our understanding at all
9am: called Child Care Resource Service to get a list of licensed daycares in the area, discovered that they are closed on Saturdays and you can't get the information from their website.
all day: watched Elliot and worked feverishly on proposal for advisor during nap time and after Elliot's bedtime.
I do not work on Sundays. Instead I went to a basketball game with N and had a really good time.
Brendan came home
Monday: called Child Care Resource Service back and requested information on daycares. Stayed up late working on proposal.
Tuesday: finally got proposal sent to advisor around 11pm.
Wednesday: got packet of information from Child Care Resource Service. Went through it flagging places that looked promising.
8:30am: dropped off Elliot
9am: met with a potential daycare person
9:30-5: ran around campus like a crazy person, from one meeting to the next (seriously, I was at 4 different meetings/obligations, all of which were in different buildings, between the hours of 11am and 3:30 pm)
5pm: gave daycare provider 2 week notice
9am: met with another potential provider
10am: dropped off Elliot
10:30: met with yet another potential provider
11:30 finally got to work, worked like mad person
2pm: meeting with advisor. Outlook--write grant proposal by Sunday, write Chapter 1 of my dissertation by Monday morning. No pressure, but it has to be good so I can finalize my committee and schedule the prelim, which by the way, might have to be during the vacation we were planning to take.
5pm: daycare provider told us she is closing her doors and will not be open effective immediately. Translation, we have to find someplace else by Monday morning.
