LIKE A WHIRLPOOL IT NEVER ENDS

Whirly wheels of mind mechanics, my brain is spinning, it seems. This whole week has been crazy busy, punctuated by a one-two-three punch of anger/disappointment/resignation. I've worked late 2 days, tonight until 7 p.m.. With only 2 weeks left before I leave I'm feeling the pace start to increase and threaten to overwhelm.
Today at work, I:
  • finalized a 24-page product guide
  • re-sized an ad layout
  • re-sized and edited photos
  • found things, sent things, uploaded things, transferred things, archived things, proofread things, showed people how to do things
  • delegated 3 HTMLs, 4 datasheet layouts and a content extraction
  • brainstormed about a corporate presentation template
  • reviewed and revised, basically re-creating from scratch, 2 presentations of 19 slides each
  • localized the layouts for campaign materials in 4 languages, including 2 web banners, 1 2-sided postcard, 2 letters, 2 envelopes, 1 poster, and 2 advertisements
Only one about half of those things were on my to-do list. Tomorrow I have 2 more presentations, 4 more languages, 2 more ads, an HTML, a 2-page flyer and some translation coordination to do. And that's just the short list.

I've got a load of laundry in and gave the kids a bath, and Martin and I read 2 chapters in Mrs Frisby and the Rats of NIMH. Now I'm going to pay the bills and translate 2-3 pages. Then I shall collapse, muddy and exhausted (but not before reading a chapter of the book I'm in the middle of, I hope).

Rock 'em Sock 'em Birthday Wishes to My Nephew Bryce!
