I’m backdating this and posting it almost a week late so that’s how my week was. Sigh.

How My Week Went:

The good things this week: I reread Practical Magic. It’s still amazing. Bella became an Instagram Reels star. I have amazing friends and a wonderful mother.

Everything else this week sucked. My office is leaking. No one cares. Like the actual response when the leak was “fixed” and still leaking was a shrug emoji in real life and my entire department is supposed to just be okay with working in these conditions because no meaningful offer to find any other workspace was made. There is no timeline for fixing it. Every other work thing is also annoying. Plus a gigantic waterbug died right next to my desk. We have new neighbors who are, of course, incredibly noisy and think 10pm is a great time for piano practice (it is not) and are driving Bella absolutely crazy (me and mom too).

How has your week been? Hopefully smoother than mine.

How My Week Went:

I’m not going to talk about 9/11 and the 20th anniversary here. It’s a terrible thing that everyone who lived through has to carry–this year while living through other terrible things–and I hope you’re all taking care of yourselves.

I had to take two days off this week and it was some much needed rest. If you are in a job where you earn sick time, be sure to take it before your body decides to take it for you.

Week in Review; September 4: In Which I am Tired

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?

Work is just the worst right now. We have achieved one week with Bella. She has taken a surprisingly short amount of time to be completely spoiled.

How My Week Went:

What a week. I had all the stress and all of the fatigue from work. The big event this week: my mom and I adopted a dog. Bella is an 8 month old Terrier mix. She is very smart, very sweet, and can be very stubborn. We’re all still getting used to each other.
