Old Green Insulator
You know that day you get to where you just need a vacation? That’s where I am at. There hasn’t been any one bad thing in my life (as long as I don’t watch the news), but there have been a string of frustrating “administrative” tasks at work (renewing a contractors contract, trying to get that contractor an FTE position, implementing a new and better big data management policy, etc).
All of this feels like walking with cement shoes – but I always win in the end – because I’ve been around the block enough to have all the patience and persistence required. But it is tiring . . .
Oh well, luckily I only go through this once or twice a year. My wife’s job is like this daily – I honestly have no idea how she puts up with it. I know I couldn’t – I’d be in a padded room by now.
