The first few days back to work were not bad. Holidays, short week. Most of my projects stayed pretty quiet in my absence. No problems.
This was all good, because I was just back from a cruise and a series of flights and of course I got
the crud a cold.
But following the holiday, I still had my cold … and new projects started rolling in.
And clients who haven’t reached out in months – Seriously, months and months – came out of the woodwork. And they need something now please.
So, a little crazy how much is piling up.
And since I’m not really able to take on anything new-new right now, for other reasons, I’m mostly spending days batting back client questions so my team can do other things, and helping the team wrap up loose ends where I can.
I love my job. I do. I work with great people and what we do helps our colleagues make better decisions and/or improve customer experience, and it pays for important things, like housing and food and travel.
While I’ve been sick, I have not been feeling so much love.
This too shall pass. Colds almost always end, eventually. And you almost never die from them.
