Day 348: Running Out of Steam

I’m running out of steam.

I’m overwhelmed and stressed at work. With one person out on vacation and a short week everything really adds up.

As much as I wonder what my boss does some days I also wonder what we are going to do when she’s not there anymore.

Having that extra person to pick up the slack and part of the work really does make a difference.

Not to mention, what will happen when someone calls in sick or goes on vacation.

We’re working with a skeleton crew as it is, so when one person is gone it really does make a big impact.

I know we’re not the only ones to feel this way, most workers are feeling the same way.

It just makes me want to get the heck out of Dodge and find something else to make money and keep me busy.

I know that’s easier said than done, especially in this economy, but after this past week I honestly don’t know how much more I can take.

I hate to talk so much about work, but it really is occupying a lot of my time and energy these past few days.

And just when I thought the work load would ease up because my coworker will be back tomorrow, I realize my plate is piled high the next few days so there is no end in sight.

Ugh… it is paying the bills so I shouldn’t complain, except I think this job could literally kill me if I don’t do something.

Maybe I need to get working on my side job, or find someone or something else to take my mind off of things.
