It's Friday and I'm not nearly as happy as I should be about that fact.
As many of you know, I'm usually quite happy-go-lucky, but work and a few other things going on in my life really have me feeling yucky these days.
Work is the biggest culprit because my job is slowly turning into a one that I don't like.
The reason I left my previous job (9 years ago) was because I got to the point where I dreaded going into work every day and began to despise most of my day-to-day responsibilities.
Well, it seems that I'm heading down that path once again.
I'm not nearly at that point yet, but I really don't see things getting any better. At my previous job I supervised a team of 7 employees. I did that job for about 6 months and quickly realized that I really hated managing people - vowing that I would never want to take a job like that again. That promotion is what finally pushed me over the edge and out the door.
With the way things are going now, it looks like I'm slowly moving in that direction again.
I'm not going to be managing a large group, but I'll be 'keeping an eye' on a certain number of people. I'm going to be the one that they come to with questions, I'll have to make sure that they're kept busy, that they're hitting all their deadlines and if they aren't, I'll be the one that upper management turns to for answers.
Even better...all of the work that we're doing is on that application that we've all just learned and know very little about, so we're all pretty much clueless.
I realize that this isn't a lot of fun to read about, but hey - this is real life....it ain't always puppies and rainbows.
Oh well.....I'll keep plugging along and hopefully things won't be as bad as I anticipate.
Have a great weekend everyone....it's supposed to be a beautiful weekend up our way.
As I mentioned the other day - softball starts this weekend, so send positive thoughts my way at 3:45 tomorrow afternoon!!!
