What I mean is one of those days that you never want to have.
Things are getting from bad to worse at work...partially due to issues that my staff are having to deal with on a personal level.
Primarily ... Dianne ... who has been my Customer Service day anchor & is having a hard time facing with the iminent loss of her mother ..who is a Stage 4 cancer patient. She bravely arrived to do her daily shift today ... only to be picked up by her DH as I arrived ... as her Mom's condition continued to deteriorate. Lesions found on her liver ... collapsed veins that forced the removal of her IV ... that can't be a good thing.
While this is typically skeletal staff time of year...my skeletal staff is dissipating to a mere ghost!
And I'm having nightmares ... about doing it all myself ... OMG ... 830 - 9 ... 5 days straight...that is just too much! On top of which ... I can't even schedule my own nervous breakdown ... how bad is that!
And the crowning jewel of stress ... to have to deal with a hardware upgrade too! These new chip cards require us to upgrade our equipment to accommodate them ... and of course that was scheduled for tonight too ... just shoot me! It'd be a small mercy!
Gripe as I may ... life goes on ... and I am relied on to keep it going ... so that which does not kill us will make us stronger ... but really I need a clone!
It's enough to drive me to drink! Tonight wine & music are my only solace.
My support staff is not as committed as I am ... and/or have issues in their own lives to deal with. Prayers...that's all I have right now...will it be enough? I hope! One day at a time! That's all I'm doing right now ... deal with it as it comes.
So ... there ya go! Hoping you all had a better day than me!
