Woke up perfectly rested this morning having slept early last night. Suddenly got a terrible headache on the way to work and it just kept getting worse as the morning progressed. Kept thinking to myself that maybe I should take the rest of the day off and go back home but I knew that wasn't an option. Things have been really hectic and they are about to get a lot worse in the next few weeks due to staff shortages and the begining of the holiday season. Just as I finished reasoning with myself that I have to stay in the office one of my staff walked in and told me he's going home because he has a bad headache. Aaaaargh.
It was the same last week. I woke up every single morning feeling tired and had to push myself out of bed. Every day I had to convince myself that I shouldn't take a "casual" day and instead go to the office, finish off the most urgent work, and then take the rest of the day off by coming home before noon. Instead each day turned out to be busier than the day before. I never got home before 3.
Looks like the earliest I'm gonna be able to afford a day off is mid June.
