Got home Tuesday night, came to work yesterday, back at work today. I got a double workload. I am busy all the time. I have a long list of things to do, but my boss always wants me to stop what I’m doing and do something else she comes up with, which means I never get anything done. For example, Working on one problem, I’m walking to get a tool from my toolbox , on the way, I get stopped for some other emergency. Before I get the new emergency resolved, an even more important something needs to be done, ad infinitum. Then later I go past the first thing I was doing, and say “OH yeah!”, and then go back to get the tool I set out to get in the beginning, on the way, I get stopped for and emergency. . . . Lately I’ve been trying to set my own priorities, and and put my foot down. I come across as kind of mean or angry, – “I’ll do it when I get done with THIS!”

I understand how things work better than I understand how people work.

Oh yeah, because my contract got renewed, and SOMEONE didn’t turn in the paperwork, I didn’t get paid yesterday (direct deposit). So I had to wait for a check, which I got so late that I didn’t have time to go to the bank.. So this morning I’m going to the bank, work be damned! Actually two banks, first I have to cash the check, then deposit it at my bank, or else it takes three days to clear. I’ll be gone most of the morning.

Here’s some pictures from my Tampa trip:
