Swamped. Drained.

Need to take a moment though to vent my frustration. I am hearing that our department head wants my supervisor to focus more on process improvement rather than "detail" work - and implying that he needs to hand detail-type work off to, presumably, us. And it is dovetailing in my mind with that article I read on why women aren't represented in executive management rolls (too much focus on detail, not enough risk tolerance) and its making me very upset in light of ...

I am swamped at work and very, very stressed out. Half of it is the real/actual workload, and the other half is how I respond to it. I recognize that. I had to leave the office for about 20 minutes today to breakdown and re-group a bit. Its ugly right now. And no end in sight. I believe the work is worth the effort from a personal standpoint, but that doesn't change the work. Actually, if it were a clear cut and heavy workload, I'd be fine. Its when I'm given or take on tasks that are vague, hav...

Its 4:11am - I can't sleep. I've been up since 2am. I had to take the dog out, and then couldn't get back to sleep.

S and I went to see Sideways. I really liked it. Wh...

Down a pound. I think. My scale is so arbitrary. I had to do multiple weighs, getting anything from 131 to 133 and several 132s, so I assume its 132. I had hoped for less, but I will live with this. I'm just so impatient to get back to 130. Agh. My hip measurement was down a good deal, which is nice. Others were even or up slightly, but I find it hard to worry about differences of less than 1/2 inches as I'm sure I measure slightly differently all the tim.e

My maintenance reality check wa...

Work has been out of control. I found out that the coworker that I have such issues with has OCD and hasn't been taking her medication for the past 3 weeks. She confided this to me and asked me not to tell anyone. Of course I won't, but I was appalled that she told me - not appalled that she has OCD - AT ALL - but that she told me and what am I supposed to do with this information? Agh. Then she literally blew up in a meeting with Marketing and G actually got angry. I've never seen him angry, le...
