I am so tired.

September 12th, 2012 at 11:03 am

So, it's been eons since I last reported in... the short sale house reno is going just fine. We officially moved in Aug 1 and we are enjoying actually living there while we continue with the renovations. We rented out our other house and so far so good with the renters.

The reason I am exhausted though is due to demands at work. I used to like coming to work each day but for the last several months, I dread each morning getting up and going to work. We've had 4 different lead management changes during this time period... and I've assumed an entire full-time job on top of what I currently have to do. Doing 2 jobs within a work week is nearly impossible. I am stressed beyond belief as to the amount of work that I am now responsible for getting done. I have a staff of 3 folks that I used to like but lately, those relationships have been strained as well. It's so hard to describe accurately what is going on so I won't even attempt it but needless to say, I feel like my time here is over. I am looking for another job but it's a bit difficult right now to find anything comparable to what I am doing (and at the same pay). So, I am trying to take deep breaths each day, keep myself above water, and find a way to continue with this each day. I'm so drained........

    I sympathize! I was in a very similar position in 2010. For what it's worth, while I looked for and applied to new jobs, I also kept checking in with my supervisor to let him know what I felt needed to change -- namely, that I needed more help and deserved a raise and promotion for all the new work I was taking on.

    It was a long haul -- actually, it took well over a year, and the only reason I stayed is I didn't get a viable job offer in that time -- but with regular check-ins and tooting my own horn, I got a raise and promotion. I did get a full-time contractor assistant too, and they are now finally moving to make a permanent hire in that position.

    Just do the best you can do! Keep a smile on your face - even when you don't feel like it - doing that can actually make a difference. Good luck!!! Big Grin

    just keep taking deep breaths and do what you can do. Don't stress yourself out about it. Stress only has bad consequences.

    What a relief to have good renters! We have been really lucky in that regard (knock on wood) and it leads to a lot more peace of mind. If you have some insurance of reliable renters, it is worth working with them to keep them in your property.
