not much here to blog about

What I didn't expect with the new job was the deadline pressure. Our fiscal year ends, appropriately, on Halloween. It ain't just at home where discretionary spending is being curtailed. My numbers are awful, and I am worried about not only the loss of a zero in the commission check, but about the new manager looking at the numbers. She is really on our case about being on sales calls all day, every day, and checking the calendar. I am going nuts. I am forgetting things. I am not following up on things. Breathe. Go fix supper and read the morning paper. It will all be there 12 hours from now when I get to do it all again.

Hang in there and don't get all freaked out. The manager sounds like a real beast, but you can do what you can do. You're giving it a shot, and at some point you have to decide if you want to make a go of it, or not. I think that no job is worth being SICK over and it sounds like that is starting to become an issue.

I'm thinking about you. You have your beeatch boss and I work with the Evil Troll. Lucky us. At least I can destroy the Evil Troll.
