Well the shoe has dropped. My 0.5 tech has regretfully offered her resignation due to health problems she can't seem to get on top of. I am back in the soup.
We are still, after a year and a half, operating with a skeleton staff. The latest thing is that we have to divide among ourselves the duties of our nonexistent safety officer, so I have to do a presentation on right-to-know, and then on the emergency action plan (which will have to be extensively edited) and then on the chemical hygiene plan. That last being for lab personnel only, I suppose I will present it to myself. Well, it is one more thing for my resume.
