To not lose it! There is so much going on at work, that I can't seem to get a grasp on all of the changes. It seems like the more flexible I become, the more they try to see if I can break. The problem is that if you act quickly to resolve a problem, they think you don't have enough to do, so they give you more. The situation is that I don't like to have unread emails in my outlook, and I don't like a messy desk - so I do what I need to do to ensure that what I like stays that way.
We are in the midst of an organization change in operations, and at the same time preparing for contingency in the event of a work stoppage because the MLA (Master Labor Agreement) expires 9/1/08! Which means we can't schedule vacation time or anything after 8/31/08 - which is crazy especially since I have surgery scheduled for 9/16/08!
The one positive thing about this whole process is that I've begun meditation and the time away from my office during lunch has helped me to refocus. Previously I ate in my office while working on emails, etc.
