I had huge deadlines in the Paycheck Job which sucked the life out of me. I used to be able to laugh that kind of thing off, but lately, the PJ has been just one big churn after another.
Of course, there are reasons for that, all out of my control. And I suppose that's what made it so stressful. If I could fix it, I would have, but I couldn't. However, I was the front man for the project, so I got the fingers pointed at me. My boss knew the truth, which is really what matters, but it it's annoying when others Just Don't Get It.
Anyway, that's behind me (I hope), so I can go forward. But it drained me of a lot of energy. I'm going to need a holiday to recharge.
Oh, wait. There's a holiday coming up. Serendipity!
