Holding Pattern

Last Monday my coworker had her surgery (full hysterectomy and thensome for cancer). I am currently in week 2 of doing my job and her job. The downsizing over recent years has led to both of us doing more than one person's full time job, so let's just say that right now, while I am covering for her, I'm super overtaxed. I didn't get a break yesterday and am taking a half hour break today, so I haven't had time to film this week. I'm hoping to be able to take my whole break tomorrow so I can film during daylight hours outside. The quilt is washed and done. Just need to film and photograph, then mail.

So that's what's up with me. My coworker will be out this week and at the very least next week. Then she sees the doc to find out if she can come back yet. So likely next week will be difficult as well, but at least I'm relatively healthy, so I'm grateful for that. I just don't film in the evening because after working overtime and them coming home, I just can't seem to muster up the energy to do it. Let's hope tomorrow goes more smoothly than the last couple of days. :)

WOW! You sure do have a load on your little shoulders. Get as much rest as you can so you will stay healthy!

I'm glad you were able to finish the quilt and can't wait to see it.

I am so glad that her surgery was successful and she won't have to have radiation or chemo. After almost a week and a half I can honestly say these people have no idea what they put her through on a daily basis and I'm going to make sure they know they are lucky to have her, because if they made me do it permanently I would make them rue the day, lol.

It's getting to be the way things are in big companies these days, lots of VPs managing and only a few of us "little" people left to actually do the work. I am glad to have my health and just take each day as it comes.

How about some hugs? I think hugs are needed. *all the hugs*

Today was SO much better. Was finally able to get caught up on some data entry and even work ahead a little bit. Thursdays and Fridays are usually insane, but today was a decent day.
