The reintegration back into work has not been good the last couple of days. There are problems all over the place--long-standing problems that caught us by surprise. Soooo I've been fielding phone calls, poring over reports and trying to get a fast mastery of paperwork and operations that I barely knew existed two months ago. I'm mentally exhausted. I hope to god we get this straightened out by the end of the week or I'm going to be crazy.

The work front crazy dovetails not so nicely into getting my first packet of assignments finished up and ready to be sent to my supervisor by the end of the week. I knew it was going to be tough getting a substantial amount of work done in 9 days when we usually have three weeks--but I thought I had programmed in enough time--but the work thing has blown up. I'll have it's just going to be a long couple of nights.

I got an acceptance email last night for three poems. Thank god for that. I needed it this week. Not to mention that I've effectively tripled my 2008 acceptance rate already. More deets once it's all finalized.
