Perks in the Chaos Called Work

Last Friday, Janie brought me a handmade necklace. Why? I really don't know but it was sweet. Monday, Shirley brought me a ceramic knick-knack for helping her update her forms. Tuesday, Linda brought me two bags of Doritos. Why? Because I jokingly told her she owed me a bag of Doritos in an email because her project was so hard! When I saw those giant bags of chips I died laughing. I am just amazed at how sweet these people have been, they've really made a crazy time better!

The chaos of back to school work is so intense that it's made me a little silly. When people come in and say "I need it now" - I nearly laugh in their face. I do my best but there is simply not enough hours in the day to get it all done. In the middle of my jammed packed day, my calendars where delivered, now I have to figure out how to get 25,000 counted out and delivered among the thousand of other things. Darn that printer for being timely!

Individual parent and staff letters for every school have to go out, student parent handbook has to be finished and printed, webpages have to be created and updated, business cards need to go to bid and print, report cards need to be finished and get bided and printed and other unforeseen tasks - yeah, I'm not gonna make it... c'est la vie!

I guess we are all in the same boat! Beginning of school is a killer!
