i should be out with the g/f right now... but no. i'm home. working. made plans yesterday to see knocked up with her tonight. today i get a message around 5pm that one of our new clients is flipping out that we havne't done anything yet (mind you, they have a late august launch date, and their site is fairly easy... 3-4 weeks of work, tops) so we've been focusing on 2 other clients who are launching at the end of june. so, 5pm i get a message saying hay, we need their template done by tomorrow. i'm about half way done with it now... but i had to call her up at about 6 and break our plans for the 730 movie because of it. so now i feel like an ass for backing out last minuet on her. she understands and isn't remotely mad/upset about it... but i feel like i put her off. the real problem is that this will certainly not be the last time this happens. hell, i'm on call all next week, so i can't really do anything with her other than hang out around the house or something really local/close at which point i may need to leave at a moments notice. those of you who work a lot or have last minuet schedule changes... how do you balance your professional and social lives, so that neither ends up hating you?
