Lately, things at work have been pretty crazy. I’ve probably written that same line before, but it seems that perhaps this is just the new normal. We have so many things going on that it’s hard to really devote the time and focus I’d like on any one project. I feel like Lucy and Ethel at the chocolate factory, when the conveyor belt speed keeps getting turned up, more and more candies are zooming down the line, and there’s not enough time to properly wrap each one, so they start shoving them in their mouths and their hats to get rid of the evidence.
Fortunately, my work situation has not required that I hide any incomplete work in my clothes, but I certainly feel that panic of seeing all those chocolates and knowing that it’s just not possible to get everything done correctly in the time allotted.
Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoy my job and the people I work with. It just seems like everyone is overwhelmed much of the time, and it’s not a nice feeling.
Anyway. I wanted to post, so no one thinks that I gave up on EEC Chick after her one-year anniversary. I am thinking that in year two, I may veer away from EEC a little bit, and just talk more about life in general, and my philosophies about it. Love, peace, happiness – you know, the usual.
For now, I must go, but in the words of the Terminator . . . I’ll be back.
