After the second working weekend in a row, I'm getting burned out. So many projects going on at work that my head spins. I just can't keep up at this point. The first thing to go is quality. I make a valiant effort to be a team player and delegate work to others. They fuck up and I have to redo their jobs -- only, I have no time left to get it done. So, the schedule gets shot and the onus falls back on me to get the project done. Being a developer, I'm just about the last one in the line, so any slacking consistently falls back on my shoulders to meet deadlines. On a lighter note, we might be importing some help soon.
Don't get me wrong, I love what I do. I just wish I could do it and still have a personal life that's not spent recovering from my work week. Is it normal to feel so drained when I get home at night? Maybe I'm just getting old or something. Maybe I just like bitching about stuff.
I'm going to go see what TiVo caught while I wasn't looking and zombify myself on the sofa.
For those of you who didn't get a chuckle out of this, do you think we have a problem?
