That was the week that was

A year ago at this time, I was one of 7 on this creative team. Now there are three.

Our account is growing. But they have been adding to management staff and to the creative group that does television. Our team has been cut ... radically.

Our workload has not been cut ... at all.

In reality, there were too many of us when we had 7 bodies. But I think we need another person. But it is what it is, and so I've been drowning over the last two weeks.

And there's been a lot of change in the management staff. New faces, and promotions among the rank and file. Some of those promoted are a little young and very green and don't wear the new power well. I am proud to report that I have restrained myself and there was no bruising or loss of blood over the past five days.

So I've had a lot of late nights, and a lot of stress.

There's a Big Presentation on Monday. I'm very confident of the work and my presentation skills. I'm not confident of my ability to be on the Amtrak train at 7:00 AM. I have to leave my house, dressed for all eyes on me, before 6:00 AM. Gulp. I have three alarm clocks and have set a wake up call.

Pray for me.


  1. What Kwiz said.
    But I'll be praying starting Sunday night. ;-)

  2. I'm confident that you made it, and have already done a fantastic job!


Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
