Post Vacation – Monday: Back to work – Tuesday; facing the backlog

Posted on

Moody morning but off to work on time. Within 15 minutes of arrival and I feel like I lost 9 days of rest to 5 minutes of a familiar grind.

Busy all day and facing the worst fall-behind in the past 2-3 years of vacations where staff kept my stuff quite current.

Interviews were all rough in the sense of hard to use humor around the seriouness of illness, job loss and psycho-drama. In all this I need to figure out a way to work through another 6 years before eligibility to retire – or figure a way to replace the income with a job less emotionally draining.

Working on it.

Home to wife and companion … a blessed return from work.

Tuesday – backlog; The reason why I take only a week’s vacation at a time is because even after a week, when I return I’m swamped with backlog. Office severely understaffed and unable to cover each other’s caseloads completely.

I’ll be playing catch up and treading water on current events for two weeks until it stablizes.

Come home ready to be home.
