I love my job!

Hey.

Have I mentioned that I love my job?

The last week and a bit has been SHEER MENTALLY INSANITY with a few NIGHTMARISH DEADLINES and some CREATIVE CHAOS thrown in for good measure.

Tuesday I had 3 different DUE 5 MINUTES AGO LEIK OMG NOWNOWNOW!! items dumped on me in rapid succession, culminating in one that I was handed at 5:30 - I got out of the office at 10:30 that night. Yesterday, I was literally yanked back and forth between 2 different projects, from one end of the office to the other.

I feel like I actually accomplished a great deal this week, and things that I did were instrumental in the proposal going out to our prospective new client. And last night, before I left, my boss asked me to sleuth around my old account, where they are making a bunch of changes, to make sure they are screwing anything up. He contacted the new account manager and told her I was pretty much the one keeping the existing program with my current account from falling apart - then asked her to, pretty much, give me carte blanche access to any tool or reporting to do with that account.

*blinks*

So. I guess they think I'm competent.

I really like my job.

WHEE!

You'll forgive me, I hope ...
... if I feel slightly envious.

I used to have jobs like that. I haven't since 2003.

After the *last* job I had -- which was solely customer-service and was followed by large layoffs -- I really do not want to work for a call center again. But what else to do?

It looks as if I may have to consider major retraining. The catch is that the retraining often leads to large accumulations of debt, which (under current economic circumstances) I would have serious difficulties paying off. Then there are the health issues I will
have waiting in the wings ...

Life is never simple. But it soooooo beats the alternative. :-)

From a "grook" by Piet Hein:

Put up in a place
where it's easy to see
the cryptic admonishment
T. T. T.

When you feel how depressingly
slowly you climb,
it's well to remember that
Things Take Time.
