Today I found out I was “selected” for a special three weekend work group.
It is somewhat of an honor perhaps; not everyone on my team is taking part, and there are people being flown in to have a hand in it. There is even a National Task Force coming in to work it. Kind of a big deal.
But to me it feels like a burden. I was going to be taking 3 days off over that exact time period, to attend a birthday party, teach a Sunday school class, and hear my husband preach for the first time.
Now I’ll be working mandatory shifts instead.
Disappointed is an understatement.
