Later, there will be a [livejournal.com profile] wincon post of squee and good cheer, with plans, deals, weddings, tattoos and general love of all the world. This is not that post.


Emma appeared yesterday.

And yes. Appeared. I came home from work and there she was. It was not unlike pulling into the driveway and seeing Freddy Krueger on your porch. There's a moment of shock and disbelief, along with a growing sense of horror and an urge to run, coupled with the knowledge that running will not save you. Luckily, it's just Emma and one dog (an elderly, blind gentleman named Chai Chai, who is a doll and originally one of ours anyway). No kids, so I felt safe in saying what the fuck is this shit?! and retreating to my room to sulk hide be alone.

Thanks for giving me a heads-up, family. Really.

Work is not much better. My Owner (long story, will write about it one day) threw out her back yesterday. While getting her drugged up messages was kind of hilarious, this means that she's going to be out for a while. We're in the middle of running a pilot in preparation for a system-wide upgrade. In this, the labor division is generally that I handle people, she handles systems and decision-making—there is no third person. Meaning that, with her out, most of the work is going to fall on me. It's do-able. Stressful, but do-able, and it will be good leverage for later talks of "I am a good employee, don't you want to give me more money".

However, I also got my semesterly assignment of Data Entry. You know, the one that could be much easier if IT would just get off their ass? It usually takes two days. With the upgrade and my owner out, I'm looking at a week, minimum. More frustrating than usual, we just created a division specifically to handle this stuff. Before, I got trapped doing it because there was no specific division and I'm low woman on the ladder. Now, there is a division, and I'm still stuck doing it, because they're "too busy".

For the record, their current job? Making tutorials for the new system, training people how to use the new system, and giving workshops on the new system. They have yet to make any tutorials, most of their training calls get sent to me (and my job description specifically excludes training duties), and all reports of their workshop have the phrase "useless" somewhere in the text. Unfortunately, with my boss out, I have no one to complain to who will understand the situation.

Normally, this will be possible. I'm good at managing stress, and some of it is temporary. But piled on top of Emma, whose last visit drained me so badly that I'm just now recovering? And Mary's recent bout of Maryness? My Dad deciding to forgive me for his bullshit? I sort of went boom. And I predict future Boom in the future. So if I randomly go quiet, it may be because I'm in hiding for attempted/actual murder.

Just needed to vent. (breathes)

There, there
