Leaving this (temps are Celsius of course):
Didn’t leave by 10 o’clock like we’d hoped, more like noon, but we should be at the beach by dinner time.
I worked late last night again, trying to get it all done before I left, but in the end I figured that since I’m not a brain surgeon who’s left a patient on the table, it’s not really life or death if I don’t finish. They’ll just have to deal.
I’ve told my boss and the others that I’m not going to check email at all — I need a true mental break before I have a mental breakdown. Surprising that I would have to say that, but when she was away in Europe for three weeks, she was in daily contact. She asked me what it meant to leave someone “acting”. I explained that they make decisions on your behalf when you’re away. She said, “Oh! I could never do that!” Yeah?
Well, I can!
