Work stress and binge watching Netflix

This past week at work was one of the more stressful ones I've had in a while. I'm training a new assistant which normally I don't mind but trying to keep up with my own workload and training was just too much. On Monday I felt like crying by the end of the day. I'm trying to train and I was constantly getting pulled aside for things that needed to be done ASAP. I found myself saying "sorry I'm just going to do this real quick and you can watch and I'll show you properly when I have the time". Great way to train someone right?

Training a new assistant takes time. It takes about 2-3 months for a new assistant to start to feel comfortable with the job and the first week you sit with them for most of the day. I've been trading off with another assistant for the training but I still stayed late trying to catch up.

Thankfully I have Monday off. I've been watching the Paradise on Netflix instant. I've watched 7 episodes so far. I was invited up to Maine but I just couldn't handle the long drive after this week and Bosco is starting allergy meds again. I'm not going to make Derek shove allergy pills down my cat's throat. I think it was his scented cat litter causing the problems so I switched to unscented. I think he has sensitive skin. I always get the cats with the weird ailments> I had a cat growing up that had asthma. He seems to be doing better though.

So that's my long weekend. Watching Netflix and drugging my cat with allergy meds. Hopefully I'll be ready to face Tuesday back at work.

    1. I hate it only because I can't get my stuff done. Then I feel bad for the new person because they are just trying to learn.
