How much would Florida cost?

I'm really in a funk or a quasi-depressive mood. Today almost sent me over the edge. I got a call from one of the clients who demanded to speak to me. Basically, he was giving me a kick in the pants because his stuff is not being done on time. I suppose he is justified since we haven't been been upholding our end of the contract. If I was in his position, I'd be a little ticked as well. I've brought this issue up before and virtually nothing is being done to solve the various problems that we are having. My boss seems content to deal with issues as they come up but is not interested in the long term fix. We've got old programs that are crashing all the time and quite frankly, I'm getting sick of going into work wondering what will break because no matter how hard I try to get stuff done...there never seems to be enough time.

Essentially, I feel like I am trying to do the best with the limited resources that I have amongst the multiple demands for my attention. Does anyone realize that I work for three different departments? I'm in 1.) accounting, 2) account administration (which is what I'm complaining about), and training for 3.) warehouse operations. My day is spent scrambling from one thing to the other and trying to fit in some learning whenever I can. All I want to do when I get home is sleep. And I hate it because moments later, I'll be waking up to start the cycle all over again.

I try to keep positive but sometimes it's just too much.

And I miss my friends.

Deep, relaxing breaths. Hang in there. This too shall pass. Sufficient unto the day is the trouble thereof.

Any of this working for you?

Let me see if I can find a jpg of a kitten clinging to a tree branch.
