document: complete!

Two days short of a month ago, I mentioned I lost an important document I had been working on for several weeks. This document was (and is) an instructions document for my job, such that if an emergency issue came up and I wasn't around, since I'm technically a contractor and not an employee anymore, my boss or other boss could do the task.

Well, I just finished recreating it and I sent it off. And yes, I backed it up to several different places. It has been a stressful month, not having that document for them. I planned for them to have it before orientation and then classes started (three weeks ago) but...yeah. Lost the doc and had to start over almost from scratch.

Since my schedule has me on campus a lot, and I only bring my computer to school on one of those days, it has been stressful being away from things. Luckily there weren't any work emergencies. Truly, we don't have a lot of them, and none of them are true emergencies...they're more like clients who create emergencies because they lack foresight and planning skills. But it would be my luck to have one that I couldn't address because I was on campus reading Gramsci or tutoring freshmen.

But no more! I can carry on knowing that I've done what I was supposed to and I shouldn't worry about things that aren't mine to worry about any longer.

Yeah right. Like that just happens overnight.
