I feel completely disconnected.
Normally during my work day I’m at my
desk table connected to the rest of the world for 8 plus hours a day, while still technically working. This week I’m there but not there. I no longer remain seated at my table for more than 5 minutes.
We’re in storm mode and that means I must keep a constant and steady watch
supervising babysitting the newbies. Our temporary office is maxed to capacity with a sea of temps to come to our aide. Good for business..not so good for sanity and brain function. Though I admit I’m actually holding my own and have not overstressed out..yet. I think 99% of it has to do with that little voice in the back of my head saying “only 48 plus hours to go, we’re in the homestretch.”
By Friday the 12th I will have worked a total of 145 hours since Aug 31st..give or take a few. Not that I’m counting or anything. To say we’re busy right now, is a bit of an understatement. This means that my time for blogging/reading blogs has dropped from 8 hours a day (not all day mind you..but it is right there at my finger tips for those 8 plus hours a day) to an hour or two a day.
The sad part is I’m tired and the blog reading has been reduced to skimming instead of actually reading. I can’t sit and thoroughly read PDub’s dissertation on the names of her horses or how every mom blogger out there is posting about their girl crush on VP hopeful Palin (not that I have anything against Palin..I like her I really do). My brain is mush and “light” reading is all I can handle right now. I do make it a point to read my blog buddies and what’s happening with them. Cause ya’ll are my homies and I care about you.
My house is a total bachelor pad looking wreck. At this moment, I really don’t care. I have some mis-guided, fantasized hope that once I’m home, I’ll have all the time in the world for trivial things like cleaning.
Bare with me as I try to keep connected. I’m out here somewhere, floating along, just trying to get through the rest of next week.
