Whew. It’s been a long week so far. I’m covering for a colleague who’s away this week, on his honeymoon, the bastard. ;) We’re both normally up to our elbows in alligators, but with only the one of me doing the work of two, it’s been a struggle. I’ve fallen behind in my own work, and I’ve managed to fall behind in his too. I don’t envy him the catching up that inevitably follows a week off. Even better, I leave for a week and a half off the following week, so I have to do some sort of handover as well. No doubt he’ll be feeling the same way I am after a few days of chaos.
Unfortunately it’s kept me away from doing other stuff I’d like to be doing, and some I won’t like but have to do. With the catchup I’ll be doing after that, and Christmas not long away, I’m just about at the point where I need a holiday from paying work to catch up on all the non-paying work.
Being a grownup sucks sometimes, but I suppose I could have icecream for dinner whenever I like.
