This Is The Story Of My Life

Saturday, April 26, 2008


Ok..first let me say..i don't handle change well... i try...but just have not got that part of me mastered yet...lol...so Monday i walk into work, and our Manager has been fired... and we get a new Manager... i've met him before, nice enough guy...before he was our manager...not saying he won't be now..but it's a change i knew was coming but didn't really want...so then on Tuesday they let go of one my favorite drivers...it was best for the company, and i know this, but i still liked him...so needless to say, by Wednsday, we are all on pins and needles... by thursday they are complaining about overtime...to which that includes me...soooo... do they want the job done or not??? the office staff should be 3...we have 2...me and the other girl... so both of us are busting our butts trying to keep all the work at least half way caught up... and then it happens... half our terminals power goes down due to a fiber optic cut in Indiana... and though our terminal was not one, it did mean we had to do things the old fashion way cause of the terminals that it did affect... which means i am now officially going crazy.... scrambling to do not only my job, but then the other stuff...and mind you...all in record time so i don't get that overtime... they understand of course, but after just having the talk of keeping costs down, it did not help the stress level one bit... sooo then comes Friday... i had a perfect hair day... my make up flawless...let me go back to say, i took a mental health day last week..which was a good thing...and this week i have been working on doing my hair and make up everyday...to help me feel better about myself.... to feel hot hot hot.... and though i did feel hot mon thru thur...friday i was really feeling it...the whole hot hot hot thing... lol... so i walk into work...feeling that hot hot hot....i'm ready to face the day.... meet the challenges...and get the heck out of there..not that i really had any plans anyways...but i was ready for the weekend and feeling GOOD... we weren't too awfully busy...and everything was going smoothly.... too smoothly... anyone that knows me and my crazy life knows that this was too good to be true...and it was... as the last driver hit the door, i grabed his paperwork...and that is when it happens... before i could get the paperwork into the computer...they went down...the whole system... ok...not panicing... this is just a glitch...just a glitch...after repeating this to myself and my supervisor who is also now in a panic.... we find out this is system wide... but the back up generators at home office should kick on anytime now and we can all go about our happy lives...we find out an hour later...that ain't happening.... people have been called and it will be at least another hour... so..i start attacking the things i could attack without the aid of computers... by the time the computers came up at 11 (mind you, my 8 hours was up at 10..and at 6pm, my 40 hours was put in) we had to scramble to get everything done... and since everyone system wide was now in the same boat...the computers were moving oh sooooo slow.... finally, at 1am...i gave up...anything i did after that would of been gibberish and useless..and so not right... so i told the boss i am done, finished...the rest will wait for Monday...he agrees... by this time, i have not ate anything for 12 hours.... i am tired... and beyond goofy....now just heading straight into cranky... which is so not me...i'm not the cranky type person.... sarcastic...silly... even goofy...but rarely cranky... i know this is the point of where i need to HALT..cause i am too hungry, angry, lonely and tired... oh yes...diet disaster ahead.. the good news is... i see it... and..everything is closed...lol... so i go home...like a whipped puppy...nothing to do... ho hum... luckily, my DD2 was still up... so that helped with the lonliness... she wanted some perogies... and so did i... i looked at my calorie count for the day..and yes...i could do it...so we make some perogies... the anger is starting to slip away... and now...just to deal with the tiredness... but just the thought of it being the weekend helps lift the mood...alot... so we eat our perogies..she goes to bed... and i try to stay awake at least another hour to leave some digestion time....not the best of circumstances...yet...not the worst... i could of really screwed up...yet, i didn't... wohoo for me.... and now... i've decided that Sunday is going to be a normal mental health day... i need this...for me... and i truly believe with everything that has been going on, that last weeks mental health day is the only thing that got me though this week... phew...

hugs to all...have a wonderful weekend :)

    I sure can relate to this! Working in IT, everything always goes to hell 30 minutes before quitting time, or even worse, as your walking out the door. Good for you for keeping it all together! emoticon

You do remind me of Reba from the show - I even picture you to look like her which I know you will when we meet with that dimple on her cheek - I have a feeling you got one too!!!!! Hang in there my pal. Everything will work itself out sooner than you would thing.

    My dear, you had QUITE a Friday! Good for you for handling it so well. If it was me, I knew that after a long day like that, I would have lashed out at anyone in my path and ate everything in the house! You kept your cool and made perogies with your daughter, AFTER you checked that you still had the calorie allotment. Bravo, my friend! I admire you determination, diligence, and grace. Yes, you DEFINITELY deserve to have a relaxing Sunday.

By the way, good for you for taking the time to work on your hair and make-up everyday! I know I feel much better about myself when I look nice. Enjoy your weekend, and keep looking hot, hot, hot! emoticon

    Kitty wow you had a week! Take your Sundays to enjoy! You deserve it! We will all be waiting (not patiently...j/k) for you to get back! Seriously, enjoy your Sunday and come back all calm and ready to take on a new week! The summer is almost here, and there will be days that I will not be on at all. I will not have computer access at the campground, and I am planning on spending some time up there this summer.

Have a great weekend!

    Everyone needs those days and at least you are recognizing that before you go mental. Usually I remember after I have gone mental.

Enjoy your day and good luck on the me time. That one is a hard one to do or it is in my house.

A Happy NOT Mothers Day

Sunday, April 13, 2008

This is too funny and i had to share... today was suppose to be cleaning day...usually it's saturday, but after the extrememly stressful week i had at work, i just took the day to rest...planing to do it today, sunday... no big deal... i usually don't do that much on sunday anyways... and the only thing on my schedule was take DD1 to get her hair colored due to a very blotched job she had done on herself...and then take her to work.... so cleaning could definately be fitted in...until last night at 9:30 when my DD2 remembered she was suppose to tell my about my oldest nieces birthday party at my moms... i begged her to tell me this was all a joke... it wasn't... uhg... she told me not to forget...she even set the reminder on my phone for me...to go off at 12 midnight emoticon so if her last minute plans didn't have me wanting to tie her up and lock her in a closet...lol... the midnight alarm would... it takes me forever to get back to sleep...as it did last night... so as i'm pouring coffee down my throat this morning trying to wake up and thinking about those smart animals that eat their young before they get to be teenagers...lol... said daughter yells from her bed, mom, come here.... come on kid...please tell me you are kidding... so i get up to see what she wants... to which she says "Happy Mothers Day mommy" aaawwww... how sweet...except....it's not mothers day...of course she has to argue about it...lol... i explain that mothers day isn't until May..of course...at this point, i am doubting my own words... after all..i haven't had a good 8 hours sleep for weeks now...maybe i am delerious... she then asks well then who's birthday is on mothers day...to which i reply...the youngest niece??? oooohhhh... ok... well good...the DD2 replies..cause we didn't get ya anything anyways...at this point...i just shake my head...and laugh... here all this time, i thought i was the one losing my mind, but here to find out, it's my DD2 who has lost hers.

    What a nice mistake. To get Mother's Day wrong and early. That's nice. So what did she plan for mother's day for you. Was there a present? I know she should do all that house cleaning you won't have time for. Fat chance on that one eh? My friends boy is 18 now and heading off and she's ready. i think that teenagers get progressively more awful so when it's time for them to go, you can have a heart to PUSH them out the door as is appropriate.

    Your blogs get me giggling and remembering the good old days when my kids were still in the house and not quite self sufficient yet. Never enough sleep and always changing plans at the last minute. Those were the days! I don't necessarily miss them but I wouldn't go back and change it for the world! I did have days where I thought about moving out of the house into a little apartment to escape but I never did. emoticon

    What a delightful story....having 2 sons, 1 daughter in law + a girlfriend on the scene, and a collection of nieces&nephews....I relate to this soooo well. I also had a good chuckle re the bit about "eating yr young" I can just imagine them in a pot boiling along with leeks and potato's....but in the end we also agree that our kids are the spice of life and the twinkle in our eyes. My sons are grown men and still keep me smiling and enjoying their music. Have a great day!

    Did the landlord ever figure out what the problem was with the electricity? Did you lose any food in the refrigerator and freezer due to spoilage? I'm just glad that you didn't already go to the grocery store when you lost electricity. Sorry about your allergies. I'm very allergic to cats. I always have to take allergy pills before visiting my brother because he has two of them. I wish you a wonderful new week, maybe a less eventful one. LOL
