A friend was looking over my shoulder tonight as I was looking at my work calendar for tomorrow and joked about how full it was.

One of the things that I noted when I became a manager was that my calendar fullness almost instantly tripled overnight. On the plus side, I take my 4-year old to school every morning and that inflates how busy my calendar looks. On the down side... all those times that I'm double booked... I should really try to be at both (or all three or more) of those meetings.

You'll also notice that tomorrow (Wed), I'll only be attending 4 of the 11 meetings on my calendar:
Meeting 1 - Take Ellie to School
Meeting 2 - 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Meeting 3 - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Meeting 4 - 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Probably all the same room. At least my chair will stay warm.

What I love is that the conference rooms are named after nuns. "Hey, are we meeting in Sister Mary Margaret today or in Sister Mary Magdelene?"

Umm... Sarahlynn, that's kind of disturbing.

That looks like my calendar (except for the room names). My job is largely going to meetings, but these days deciding which of 2 or 3 simultaneous meetings to attend is an increasingly large task.
