I knew the days leading up to my awkwardly timed trip would be busy busy busy, but I wasn't intending to get an email this morning saying the auditors wanted November bank reconcilliations too! GAH! We're headed tomorrow night to a special early Christmas with my family at my sister's house in NJ, we're heading into NYC three days, I'm SOOOO excited! I knew it was during our interim audit, I'd done my best to plan for it, and I've been working all last week to get together what all they requested for my fixed asset stuff. not even done, but this morning I got an email that they want november recons, GRRRR. I did something on Friday that wasn't essential, but I'm in the "hurry up and wait" period for my other stuff so I figured it was a good time. had I known, I'd have spent that time doing the other.

add being so tired I can barely keep my eyes open AND being so excited for the trip I can barely keep my eyes open ;) it's going to be a long day! I CAN do this, I CAN!

You can do this!  Remember, the auditors are essentially working for you.  Just because they ask for something doesn't mean it can't wait a week!  I like getting them stuff as they ask, too, though, so I know how you feel.  Do what you can, but keep in mind, your vacation was approved, so they know the possibilities!

Thanks. it's true. while my boss is pressuring me, nothing I can do when I'm waiting on others (in our sub office in Houston) to get me what I need. they'll get plenty before I leave tomorrow. the rest will be done mid next week. 

Did I mention I can't print to my printer and email has been off and on all day? I'm going to reboot right now and see if that fixes it, but since email is downish, it's not like they've sent me an email telling me it's all better. just annoyed that my "cannot print" email that I sent to support a lot earlier hasn't been addressed.

Do what you can before you leave. They know you're going on vacation and that this was going to happen.
