Work Obligations

All the fun stuff we've had planned - like scraping the bottom of my sister-in-law-to-be's boat, wedding preparations, etc, etc - take a back door to the latest crazy work emergency.

Of course I'm put out that I'll miss out on personal time, possibly even missing DK next weekend. Certainly stressing out pyr8queen who is more in need of support than being supportive at the moment.

But I'm not losing sight of the fact that I've got a job that's been stable and rewarding for years, for all its frustrations. I'm needed here, and this short-term whirl of chaos is an important pre-cursor to what I hope is a long period of stability afterwards. What's more - of all the people on my team, I'm best in the crucible, and I'm keeping them on-task and with their heads above water.

We were told to do the impossible. We're going to do it, too.
