Not going to let this get me down!

Friday, March 18, 2011

Today is my last day off for Spring Break, and I got "crazy" work related news yesterday. As if things weren't stressful enough, we now have a staff member who cannot come back to work due to health related issues, so she will be retiring 3 months early, and another staff member who was due to have her baby in mid April, had her baby yesterday. So there are now 3 staff members out on maternity leave all at the same time, one staff member leaving for good, and one position no longer funded! Due to a hiring freeze the position of the person leaving because of health cannot be filled at this time! Somehow the work of 4 people must be done by the staff at hand! I am at the point that I no longer care because this must absolutely be some kind of a really bad joke! Just when I thought things couldn't get worse at work, things do get worse. The good news for me is that while I am part of the administrative team, I am not the Director, so my head does not go on the chopping block when everything goes down the drain. I plan on taking a stand for myself. I am one person, and can only do so much, and I am already at overload, so I will not take anything more on! If I have to cover for someone who is out, someone will have to cover my job responsibilities! This will not kill me or derail me from getting healthy and fit!

    That's the spirit! Do your part, but stand up for yourself against overload.

    Hope the month early baby is okay.

    Keep up the good work! emoticon
