My energy is spent and I am far from done. The days start early, end very late and I feel frantic. I am not able to keep all the commitments I’ve made, but also don’t know how to actually get out of them.
I’ve got two of my three rental property vacancies in my old city filled as of last night. This is a huge step, and my new tenants are terrific. There is another chunk of work ahead related to that – maintenance and reno work to complete & oversee (the parts I need someone more skilled to do, or that I was able to hire someone to do) at least cursorily, the move-in inspections and various arrangements, and dealing with the inquiries and showings of the remaining vacant unit.
Meanwhile, I’m working 3-4 days week at my new job across town here, fitting in a rash of health-related appointments – dental work I hadn’t planned on needing, physiotherapy for my damaged foot, etc, all of which just feels like more stress and more to juggle – and being a human being connected to other human beings who are going through their stuff and call me out of the blue needing things like a letter of reference for court (!) …
And the administrative aspects of having two incorporated companies. And, last but hardly least, the actual work for my clients in the other one of those businesses. This is what I’ll probably be pulling an all-nighter tonight to tackle as I have a half day of work tomorrow with day job, and then a conference call in the early afternoon and I. am. not. ready.
I feel like puking, then sleeping.
I feel like making a serious fucking plan to transition out of my software company as I simply am not getting the work done and it just means any moments of free time I might have otherwise, I do not have.
Or… I could just suck it up, keep the promises for the current round, and transition out by the end of this joyless fucking summer.
The rental properties will likely settle down before much longer into being something that requires much less attention for a stretch than they have lately.
I better stop fucking around here and get back to work.
