Okay, we're into Week Two of the come-in-early-plan. In the week preceding I have managed to completely fill a shredder bin with the duplicate copies of documents in the files I have gone though. I am now on a supplemental bag, after throwing away almost an entire banker's box of duplicated files from a single case. The woman who used to work in my position had a bad habit of keeping copies of everything she did for everyone, none of them in any sort of comprehensible system.
And, wow am I tired. I know this is a vastly superior approach, allowing us evening hours to enjoy as the summer hurtles by. But...yike. How the hell did I do this through the school year? How am I gonna do it again?
If today is anything like yesterday, by 2pm I will be groping for simple words in order to finish sentences. I will be sorely tempted by the lure of sugar and caffeine (resisted thusfar) singing to me from the vending machine downstairs or the Starbucks just across the way. I will be ready to go home - and I will not be able to do so, because by gum we're all in this together.
I'm hoping that next week will be the last one.
