Day Three: The Reckoning
I am STILL having troubles with my fax. No, let me rephrase that. There are no troubles. It simply is not working. Now they tell me there's a system problem and it will be DEFINATELY fixed by 1 PM my time. I remain skeptical and am about to cancel my service.
I also am positively SWAMPED. I never imagined that it would be so busy. I was chained to my desk all day Monday, on the road all day Tuesday, and wayyyy behind today. I had less work when I worked for someone else!
I continue to deal with pain, so I am sitting here, with my neck encased in ice like a mackerel in a fish shop. At least I have that option at home. I'd die before I displayed myself like that to my clients and business contacts. Can you imagine? What a conversation starter. "So, what'd you do to your neck?" "Oh, I just had three long needles poked into it from the front all the way to the back. Let me tell you about it!" No thanks.
Today I have another meeting and I am wondering how I can fit it in with everything else falling behind like this. I will have to hire an assistant full-time (I already have one part time). That sounds much more glamorous than it really is, may I add. I have less money, and now must pay someone to handle additional work. Let's hope this lessens as the week progresses. No, wait a minute... I probably should hope it continues...
