When work bleeds over into sleep...

Here's a rare public post.  Nothing in it that I want to hide...

I was making an elaborate "beeper card" for our new resident physicians, but it was larger and had more info on it.  I was working on the project when the phone rang.  Someone in the room told me that a major publication needed the info NOW and asked me if I could just read it to the person on the other end of the line.  I started to do so, and before I got through the first resident's name (which was Joan, although in the dream it took me a moment to recognize it when I read it), they said they needed to know when all the residents had vaccinations.  I said I'd go ask...so went to talk to an unknown/unrecognized person in charge.  Of note, I was very flustered during this part of the dream.  I kept making excuses that i had never dealt with this stuff before.  The person in charge gave me three small-to-medium jugs that had paperwork attached, and one of them said "titer" on it.  I was carrying other stuff as well, including a container labeled "sweet potato."  I carried all these things to what was apparently my apartment, and I was thinking that it was the weekend and here I was working.  I wondered if they'd give me comp time or if I was working for free.  I planned to use the information from the papers with the jugs to complete my list of vaccinations.  I got back to the phone (after all this time!) and the guy was still on the other end.  I spoke to him for a moment then put the phone down to look for more info.  The phone didn't appear in the dream after that...instead there was a man in the room with me who was dressed like a professor, and we were talking.  He mentioned his wife, who in the dream worked with me and I couldn't stand her, she was really prim and proper, but I didn't tell him that, just listened to him instead.  He said she was under pressure at work from above because it's been 12 years (inferring that she should leave if she's not going to advance).  I don't remember anything of the dream beyond that part of the conversation.

Interesting related thought: As of a few weeks ago I'm now in my 12th year at my current job.  Hmmm...
