|Does my work ever end?

Most of the staff is gone on Holidays, to Egypt, or France, or some other exotic location, enjoying themselves. Not that I don't love Hogwarts, and in truth I can't see myself anywhere but here, but it would be so much better if things didn't some how always go wrong no matter what I do.
For instance, how on Earth do half of the owls I sent out suddenly get sick mid-flight? Honestly, it took me hours to write up all of those results, and now it appears that I shall have to re-write them over again!
To add to it, I've been receiving multiple letters from parents and students all asking where their results are, and it's driving me mad! I'm not withholding them to see you suffer, so please stop acting like it!
On top of that, Severus has not been pleasant lately. Upon entering the staff room yesterday, he looked up at me and immediately groaned about 'The Feline.' This, of course, did not sit well with me, and an argument followed. And he had the gall to say that he 'won' when in truth neither of us 'won'! I swear, I can't stand that man sometimes. And despite the nice weather, he still spends the entire day down in the dungeons concocting Potion after Potion, never mind that Albus and I are worried about him...
The Ministry have been consistently owling Albus and I nearly every day about one problem or another. It seems that at least four times a week we have to go down there to go to a meeting or sort out one thing or another. They seem to have forgotten that our sole concern is with this school and our students.
Summer vacation was created so that teachers and students wouldn't have to work as hard as they do during the school-year, if at all. So why is it that it seems like I have more work to do, rather than less?
