I will be leaving for a 2 and a half week vacation in just 2 weeks. I have the plane tickets and the hotel, still need to get a rental car. That part is going well. What freaks me out is work.
I have about 20 things I need to do before I leave and there is no way it's all getting done. My boss keeps making comments about how it all better run smoothly while I'm gone, yet I have exactly NO ONE to back me up. Apparently I am supposed to have someone cross-trained in 2 weeks. gaaaaah! It's not possible! I only have two employees and each of them is already working to capacity.
Oh yeah, I'm completely out of postage at work. Didn't get the check sent quick enough and now I'm going to have to run to post office and purchase a whole bunch of stamps. Did I mention I'm stressing out?
I know someday I will look back on this and laugh and say to myself, "Self, why did you get so stressed out over things that weren't that important in the long run?" I'm reminding myself daily, this too shall pass. My life is NOT defined by my job. I'm only working there so I can have money to LIVE MY LIFE!
Good talk with self. Now onward to work and conquering the day! I will not get stressed out today! And I will day dream of warm sunshine, palm trees, rural life and my grandchildren.
