Bring on a new week!

This last week almost ate me alive!!!
I think that it was probably the worst week I have had in a long time.
My coworker lost her job, so I was all alone and expected to pick up the slack. Which I thought would be no problem at all.
So on Tuesday I was shown how to do the other half of the department. I felt like it was 2 days of training in 4-5 hours. I barely got anything done that day and was completely overwhelmed (so much so that I asked Eric if we could go out to dinner b/c I was so stressed I didn't even want to think about cooking!).
Wednesday comes around and I am expected to put into action what I learned the day before. At this point I realize that on Tuesday I never completed a task all the way through, I did the main component of each task and then moved on. I at once felt SO overwhelmed and didn't even know where to start or what to do. I became so overwhelmed that I was fighting back tears and knew if anyone talked to me I would just break down. I ended up taking an early morning break and went outside and cried and talked to Eric. (Man, I am so grateful to have such an amazing husband. He always does such a great job of comforting me and helping me to feel better, even over the phone!) I came back from my cry-fest and found out that they hired someone new, which was the best news ever!! My stress level went way down and started to feel a lot more comfortable in what I was supposed to be doing.
The rest of the week went by fairly smoothly and I am happy to report that I survived! I was very happy to say goodbye to my horrendous week on Friday!
So bring on a new week....I am totally ready for it!!!

  1. I totally have been there. I think that the cryfest really helps. I always feel much better after I let it all out. I am glad they hired someone so quickly.
