Apparently, there aren't enough hours in the day for me to get things accomplished at work. I don't think I have ever had a job that is so completely insane.

On a regular day, if I don't have meetings that keep me out of the office, I get interrupted no fewer than 50 times. Patrons. Employees. Crazy people. Fires (literal and figurative). Arguments. Complaints. Praise. Conversation. Sales. Questions (that could have been answered with just a little bit of thought and/or common sense). It's absolutely never-ending. And maddening.

I miss being a librarian - being a library director bears no resemblance to being a librarian whatsoever. But now that I make enough money to almost pay the bills and I have a family to support, going back to the low-paying world of reference doesn't seem possible. But God, do I miss it.

That's the crazy way of the world, innit?
