I've always gone above and beyond at work. I got a new job, I loved it, I got new accounts, I was so happy, completely busy at work, but not overwhelmed as I had been in the last year or so. Then it all came to a head, on Tuesday (and it was UGLY!). Last week I was asked to take some of it back over for a week because one person went on maternity leave, "it's only temporary, I can keep it at bay" I thought. And it was all fine, until Tuesday, when I got the other half of my old job back (they filled my old position with two people) and let's just say it hasn't been pretty. I've been putting out fires all week, and I've gone from being down-right angry to be disappointed to taking the attitude of "no one can eat an elephant in one sitting, one bite at a time it can be finished". Yesterday I was so sick with work, I could barely eat (and you know that's when it's bad).
I'm glad today is Friday, I am glad that God gave me the brains to complete this job, this task.
