Another Day, Another Rain

After a few nice days of weather, the rain is back and the day is gray.  My assistant has been out on vacation all week (at Mardi Gras!), so I get the brunt of her work on top of my own.  In a weird sick way, I kinda miss my old job as an assistant.  It was totally devoid of any real responsibility and if you had a problem you just asked someone.  Now that I'm that "someone" who gets asked, well, it kinda sucks.

I feel like I'm going crazy today and I have not yet determined whether it is just a case of bad PMS or if it is a genuine disappointment in humanity.  It is entirely possible to HATE my job without being ungrateful that I have one.  Of course I'm thankful for a means to support my family, but it doesn't mean that I'm satisfied with the way I've chosen to accomplish this.

My poor sister who is younger and working on her Masters said to me the other day "I can't believe people can't find the time to take a break to get a drink of water, much less lunch!  This just isn't right!"  All I could think is "Welcome to being a Grown-up."  So wrong...

Happy Almost-Friday (less than 24 hours, but who's counting!)
