I got home last night utterly wiped out and had to do battle with homework and I just don't have the headspace for it. it was supposed to make things easier and it certainly isn't. I can't even face doing the stuff I need to do with the kids because i'm too whacked out.
i'm massively regretting this job. it is sheer hell. i'm wiped out from the constant firefighting and stress of it. I have 26 direct reports as well as the front-line IT service to run for the uni. I just cannot do it... to think this was supposed to give me an 'easy life'. I took a 40% pay cut and upped my hours too. it's certainly NOT working out.
