So many things…


Looks like the past couple of years have really taken a toll on me, especially the last four. When we made the move from Denver to Northern Wisconsin for my job, little did we know about the challenges awaiting us, like my wife becoming her grandfather’s guardian due to his advanced dementia. Finally, things are starting to settle this year at our new home.

And then there’s the whole COVID chaos. What was initially supposed to be a two-week ordeal turned into a two-year saga. Thankfully, I’ve been able to work from home with the perks of fiber internet. Despite the support from my employer and manager, the daily grind has been a source of frustration. The new routine, lack of commute, and constant distractions make it feel like a never-ending struggle.

Dealing with co-workers who don’t respect my Teams status doesn’t help either, leading me to go invisible at times. The constant shifts and distractions in the database group add to the frustration, making it hard to focus on our tasks. It’s tough when our efforts go unnoticed, but I guess that’s the nature of behind-the-scenes work. Well, that’s enough venting for now. Thanks for listening. Feel free to share your thoughts!
