That really sucks. It's true, work can be toxic, even without the Corona. I hope things get better soon, but the news on tv isn't really very encouraging.
I hear you man. That's great that you got approved for leave. Kind of a silver lining in that you get to spend a lot more time with your wife and child.We are still carrying on with isolating despite Ontario opening up a bit. Just not ready.
Wife goes back next week after an 18 month maternity leave. She's at big 5 bank so no toxic stuff there, pretty great work life balance.
I decided to take a long shot and request an unpaid leave for the school yr (I'm a grade 5 teacher) and it was approved. We just were not comfortable with how daycare was lining up. Wife will be WFH for a while but she couldn't juggle the boy too. We saw it as an opportunity from all this chaos to be with my son for a yr.
We're lucky is all. Have some friends going through tough times, one lost their biz. Also have 3 friends expecting babies in next few weeks and it's not been easy to prepare for that in C-19. We all just keep pressing on I suppose.
Boss just dumped a two day project on my desk, then I get an email from a department head that wants me to design a whole new part of the website just for her. LolWhy aren't we checking on each other?
How are you?
How's your family?
What's going on in your part of the world?
I'll reply later...
The web designer work is booming. Lots of traditional small business are forced to go online since C-19 started.Boss just dumped a two day project on my desk, then I get an email from a department head that wants me to design a whole new part of the website just for her. Lol
Yeah work only lets us carry so much PTO over every year, so this year was a lot of just taking Fridays off because what am I going to do? Take a week off and go somewhere? Not really. 3 day weekends were nice 1-2 times a month, but otherwise feel like I need an actual recharge.I feel so tired, this year I haven't used my leave credits. My out of the country trips has been cancelled due to the pandemic.
