The layoffs have happened. People I work with are no longer there in the building with me. Not only do we all have to come to grips with that fact, but we have to make sure that the necessary parts of those other jobs still get done.
I inherited being the contact person for the listing services. I'm sure that most of the time, this was a fairly minor part of J's job - but for some reason, this week has been hell. In-house program changes, then PBS sending one out, recinding it, then sending it again. Those poor people on the receiving end of my schedule change emails must think I'm an idiot. I swear it's not me. I'm doing the best I can.
But between taking over that, pledge drive (again), and my regular job - the last thing I want to do is sit down in front of the computer when I get home. Those of you who are FaceBook friends may have noticed I've gotten a little quiet. And I'm not visiting blogs or posting the way I usually do either. Mostly, when I get home, I want to close my eyes and go to sleep, but there are plenty of things that need doing here too. So forgive me if I'm a little absent for a bit. Things are a bit overwhelming at the moment.
