Disquieting…inducing feelings of anxiety or worry.
Ephiphany…A Christian festival.
No, not that one.
Epiphany…an illuminating discovery, realization, or disclosure.
Yes, my dear readers, this Christian cat lady has had an illuminating realization that she’s feeling anxious. And that the feeling may not go away until February, 2018.
You see, the work office is moving to a new building in January and that means plenty has to be done, from change of address notifications, updating employee information, ordering furniture, working with the IT people, getting estimates from moving companies, deciding on a new phone system and much, much more.
If that isn’t crazy enough, I’ve been tossed another major project that will create, from past experience, a lot of work and a few headaches at the same time we’re preparing for the move.
And there is also the normal, every day work that I do.
How do you like my new title? No raise, but it sounds important.
There are days when directing everything can be challenging and tiring.
Hence the face of constipation.
I try to give sound advice on the job. It costs a little more, but it’s well worth it and usually solves issues. My opinions and thoughts are free lest anyone tries to ask for their money back.
I wonder how many employees would email or call me if I charged for my time? Does a dollar a minute sound fair?
How about buy one minute, get one free?
This has nothing to do with work or this post. I’m craving pumpkin pie and I don’t think it can wait until Thanksgiving.
Anyhow, getting back to work. It’s going to be a crazy three months. Busy, busy, busy. I smell overtime and lots of yoga sessions after hours.
I may need to kick Charlie Brown out of his chair before all is said and done.
Or drag my neighbor down to the brew pub for adult therapy.
In reality, though, I only want to get through this time without ending up on my back after missing the ball. My plan is to de-stress the rest of my life, especially around the holidays – keep extra-curricular activities to a minimum; get back to regular exercise; and forget the four-day cookie baking extravaganza in December.
The neighbors are going to be p*ssed about the cookies.
Anything to stave off epiphanies…
