I thought last week was hectic, but it seems that this week will not be any better.
I have been averaging 13-14 hour work days. I feel like I am out of touch with the world because I wake up, get dressed (looking like a zombie), go to work, put out fires, follow up with incompetent people, do 3 things at once, attend meetings, constantly update a never-ending to-do list, reply to what seems like a billion e-mails, brainstorm, motivate, delegate, then I get home around 13 hours later, starving, prepare something to eat, lose my appetite while doing so, shower, read around 3 lines of a book or a magazine before dozing off.
I barely have time to do anything else, let alone read a newspaper...so I have no idea what's going on in the world. I barely have time to talk to my family, I am not seeing any friends, and am not partaking in any social activities. My room is a mess, but I have no desire or energy to fix it up.
I know I am complaining....I just needed to vent. I know there are always ups and downs and that this is an "up" phase that will pass. I'm just hoping it will pass sooner rather than later.
