My boss just informed me that she's taking a vacation unexpectly, starting tomorrow. Not just a little vacation -- 4 whole weeks, because our fiscal year is about to end and she hasn't used it all yet, and our new CEO has set a hard line on not carrying over leave.
Now, we're midway through a huge, HUGE project and I've only been a junior manager for the duration of it so far ... and she wants me to take over and RUN IT while she is gone. I know it's a great opportunity and I should suck it up, it's only for a month, but it's longer hours, and there's not going to be any extra money involved -- except maybe a little extra $$$ at bonus time. I haven't told anyone at work yet since it's still so early but ... I am also about 6 weeks pregnant. I'm so worried about the stress...
The FUNNY part is I took this assetssment, and I check every single thing on the list except 2 or 3: http://www.purematters.com/healthy-mind/stress/understanding-your-response-to-stress
Haaaaaa yeah I'd say i'm STRESSED.
If anyone has any advice it would be greatly appreciated!!
