Work has been absolutely busting my ass. I am so tired. I keep going in early to deal with time-sensitive Stuff(TM) and thinking that means I get to leave early - and then it just doesn't happen.
This past week I was training but I was also the backup for a co-worker who was on vacation so I was logging into work at 6 AM, sending numbers to the people who needed to get Stuff(TM) and then traveling to the opposite end of the city to get to the training site in time for 8:30.
The training itself was great, it was mostly people who have been using the software for the past six to ten months trouble-shooting and asking questions, so I got tons of useful information. But it started two hours before I usually get to work and was twice as far away so holy crap, am I so ready to not be doing that again for the foreseeable.
Things should start to get gradually less stressful as of this week. We're still busy but all the people who have been buggering off on vacation will be back. We also have a new guy who started this week and a second new guy who starts in the middle of January - it will be awhile before they have system access and can get up to speed, but even little things they can do will be a load off of the rest of us.
Maybe if we get things a little more under control I can have a life that isn't just about work.
