Crazy week - and it's only Wednesday.
My parents are gone (have been since the last week of Jan.). For those that don't know, my parents are also my bosses. When they're gone that puts me in charge.
This week so far:
Laid 1 guy off
Fired 1 guy
2 people quit
2 Tow truck bills for the delivery truck (expensive bills!)
And then yesterday one of our employees passed away. He was 67 and has had cancer (everywhere), the last few months he has just not been well. He was at work Monday and we sent him to the hospital, and he passed away on Tuesday afternoon.
So then today was calling around informing people that we thought needed to know and figure out what to do for the business for the funeral, etc...
To top it all off, today would have been my grandma's birthday, she passed away last May and I'm missing her something fierce today.
I am off 1/2 day on Friday, I'll try and catch up on the board then!
Yeah, not a good week at all. I'm amazed your employee was able to be at work on Monday ~ talk about dedicated! I lost my grandma and sister unexpectedly 3 years ago, so I understand what you're going through. If you ever need to vent, I am just a p.m. away. Five employees gone in one week for different reasons?!?! Yikes. I hope this next week goes better for you. Remember, when it gets overwhelming, take a step back and just breathe. This, too, shall pass.

Oh my goodness, that IS craziness!!
Will your parents be back anytime soon?
I'm so sorry about your grandma too. Mine died when I was pregnant with Cadence.
WOW! What a week! I hope work life settles down soon.
