Work Stresses

** warning: lots of whining ahead, you have been warned **

That's how I've been feeling the last 2 weeks. My company just got exclusive rights to Disney titles for a large chain of stores across Canada, and guess who they've decided to put in charge of this account. Yup that's right. Me. I'm honoured by the responsibility and that they think I can handle it, but to be perfectly honest, I'm not sure I can handle it. I do small work for so many different accounts that no one really seems to know whow much work I actually do - and its beginning to pile up drastically.

I have a half day of vacation booked for Friday afternoon, but I'm starting to be afraid of leaving because of all the work and e-mails that will be waiting for me Monday morning. I figure this either means I'm becoming a good employee, or that I've sold my soul to the corporate gods. Any thoughts on which one it is?

On top of the work stresses, I believe I've finally succumbed to the germs that are floating around. Since last night I've been coughing to the point that I think my co-workers are afraid of me. The strange part is, aside from the coughing (and subsequent body pains) I feel completely fine. I don't know what's wrong with me.

Wow this post really is a downer, so much so that I feel a need to put a warning at the top. I apologize, and will return tomorrow or the next day with an up-beat Christmas-y post!

I hope all of you are having a better week!


  1. Yea, they must have realized how fabulous you are at work, but I hope the stress eases up.

    Also I hope you feel better soon. Being sick sucks!

    Boo on being sick, thumbs down.

    And enjoy you time off from work :)

  2. Oh, lovely Ella!! I'm sure they just think you are awesome! If it does get too much, is there no way you could maybe get out of one or two of the other accounts??

    Hope you're feeling better soon!! :)
