How My Week Went:
This week has been hard. I’m tired. Work is demoralizing. I’m tired. I have tried so hard to be adaptable and keep my spirits up and take good care of my mom through this hellish pandemic. But it feels endless and I’m running out ways to convince myself that isn’t true. Anything I do at work feels like it takes twice as long while I try to do virtual things while at work with no infrastructure or support in place to help with this thing that has been a daily aspect of not just my work but everyone’s. I’m just exhuasted and so tired of being angry but it feels like the only other choice is to be sad and I’m not sure I’d recover from that if I let myself start. I don’t talk about work specifics a lot but I try really, really hard to meet people where they are to help where I can. I can’t remember the last time I truly felt like that same courtesy was being extended to me. This month has been so stressful and so exhausting I missed my own blog birthday. And that’s a pretty sad way to mark 14 years on this site.
How was your week? What are you doing to keep your head above water right now?
