A long way to go and a short time to get there...

Yeah, I just quoted a country song. No clue what it is, but know it's from Smokey and the Bandit (Sumbitch! is the other funny thing I remember from that movie)

Work is extremely busy. And me, being a nitwit, booked vacation for this week.
Historically, I end up working extra hours in advance before my time off. I'm not sure if it is me or just the nature of my work. I think both. Here's why:

1. I work where people don't plan too much. Can't do much about that. And no one cares if you go on vacation – the work still needs to get done. Interesting how I am expected to rush because of OTHER's vacations...

2. I really don't have a back-up. This is a good thing sometimes. But not when I'm out on vacation. So if it has to get done, it has to get done by me.
3. I just hate other people having to do my work. I blame my parents on this... too much pride, I guess. But others have no problem asking / expecting help. So I have myself to blame for some of this.

I work two days this week and I'm trying to put the entire week's worth in. Not going to happen. Especially with my Flash class tonight. I just can't work til 8:00 tonight. At the end of the day, it won't matter, either. I also find it ironic that the MOST IMPORTANT PROJECT EVER, is not in my hands, as promised. Typical. And it will be typical that I'll be at work tomorrow way past 5:00. blah.
