Busyness and boundaries

There are at least a few dozen things I'd like to get wrapped up at work today, so I'm hoping interruptions will be few and far between. In the dream world that probably can't exist outside my head, I'd love to one day (soon) be on top of everything enough to regularly welcome those interruptions. In the meantime, I have to prioritize, which will sometimes mean focusing on tasks rather than entertaining distractions.

I also wish the problem were only external. I feel guilty when I try to keep good boundaries with others only to be a scattered mess inside my own head and not get anything done anyway. Feels like everyone loses then. All I can do is try to be faithful, but it seems like there could be a lot of opinions on just what that should look like.

Truth is, it's not that big of a deal at all. I think I just miss having my own office and being able to screen interruptions. And if that's one of my toughest problems at work, I'm sittin' in buttah.
