Continuing apace...

The dash to the finish line is starting. I'm wrapping up projects at work and trying to document precisely where things stand so that some might be able to pick them back up in the future. Is that likely to happen? Unknown.

My exit leaves the department with about 2.5 FTEs open (or about 15%). Another person is out on short-term disability, one beyond that is scheduling a disability leave next month, and yet another is counting days to retirement.

Thirty percent understaffed, with no current candidates. Ouch. Much as some like overtime, there comes a point when it's just too much.

Things at home are wrapping up too. I've been sorting things for junk/donate/sell; starting with clothing. I'm up to two laundry baskets full of stuff to be donated, mostly shirts that I don't wear anymore. I've started listing the bigger stuff on craigslist - my kayak, golf clubs, and the like.

There remains a VERY long list of things to do in the next [mumble]. Packing. Dumpster. Cleaning. Selling.

Stay tuned...

Just make sure you're sorting things WELL! Don't want to mistake the donate pile for the keep pile... (not that "I" ever did that)
