Today I am tired. Work is really busy right now. Our region needs to hire 200 new employees in the next 6 weeks which means my team has to process all of their backgrounds. In order to actually clear 200 new people, we will have to process about 250. This is with a team of 3 and one of them will be on vacation for 2 weeks. Of course, we have the normal end of the year activities such as open enrollment, performance reviews, annual bonus processing, and merit increases for 7200 people. Normally this would not be a big deal, but today my energy level is drained so it seems like a lot. I still need to schedule myself to take 100 hours of vacation before 12/31 or I will lose it - and I worked way too hard to just lose the time.
