Ugh. I accidentally deleted my last post. User error. It was a more in depth June EV update. Oh well.
Note for the future: Returned from Tahoe round trip with 80 miles left? Something like that, if we didn't charge.
The last week or so has been pretty rough. No time or inclination to get into it all. But I've never gotten past this work jinx where everyone is in the hospital and their life is a cluster (5 years at this point, across multiple jobs). I can't imagine what it's like to have well employees who show up. My employee is on her 10th? emergency of the year (not exaggerating) and so I am scrambling to cover for her *and* replace her. I also had a difficult weekend re: aging parents. Compounded with extreme cheapskate. Age + cheap is not a good combo.
Edit to add: Employee ended up quitting on Friday (after being out 2 weeks). Thankfully, we already have a replacement lined up but she can't start for a couple of weeks. & we haven't had to train anyone new since MM(18) started helping us out in 2019. Everyone's given notice and trained the next person. So... I've got one or two months of extra work chaos.
They finally figured out what her current health problem is. She needs brain surgery. It's not good. At least it's not a brain tumor. My last job was all brain tumors. Brain surgery is never good, but she sounded optimistic about the whole thing.
I am so relieved that we already hired her replacement. It was an easier task when we were feeling put out from her constant absences. It quickly turned very somber and depressing.
So... That was one of the craziest weeks I've ever had. But it's still nothing like 2018/2019. If I have time to blog and share any of it, it's not as insane as most of those years were.
Ideally I'd like to get out a few shorter blog posts, but I am not holding my breath. I'm amazed I was even able to get this one posted.
