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!
