Still drowning at work

Yep, drowning..., that's the best way to put it. Not treading. Not making any headway. Just completely immersed, but learning to hold me breath very well. When people in the hallway ask me how I'm doing, I don't say, "OK" because that would be a lie. I just say, "It's been better". There are just so many things happening that are all critical with most of them out of our control. I really have to struggle to focus on no more than 3 things at a time and nothing more. I also have to force myself to stop and walk away. Today was another day where the time just disappears right in front of you. Every now and then I hear my boss shout in surprise about what time it is and it's always 2-3 hours later than what I think it is. While it could be better, I am learning to take it in stride and go with the flow. Oh, I'm standing my ground, but I'm not trying to swim against the current anymore.

I printed my sample ballot, made selections thanks to Independent Weekly and I'm ready to attend the early voting possibly on Sunday. Speaking of politics, The Daily Show from Monday night was just priceless as they interviewed the current Mayor of Wasilla, Alaska. The interviewed just played right into the hands of the show without any assistance. You must see it to believe it.

Anyway, off to bed with me. I'm still not keeping up with LJ friends here, but really trying to find the time to catchup ASAP. I don't have a good balance here between work and real life and trying to get that in harmony again.

Thanks for the hugs! I'm learning to mellow out more on my own..., baby steps. :)

Just sending you a big hug through the rough times, Joe.

And that was indeed a priceless interview on The Daily Show - couldn't believe it!

Hey there, I was on Facebook a moment ago and was about to give you the old "nudge". Sorry to hear that things are still crazy at work for you, but hopefully they'll be better soon.

Big hugs!

You can nudge me anytime. ;)

I think I'm showing more progress my just learning to to react to all of the stresses. I need to keep working on controlling my environment as much as I can.
