Yesterday was a really bad day. My co-worker is gone on vacation, leaving me alone in the office all day. Which would be OK... if I didn't still have to do my job too. My job? I break car deals down and send them to the bank for funding. Then I have to write Thank You cards for each of them. Then I have to post each of them into accounting and get the title work ready to be printed. Then I have to print title work for funded deals, keep track of trade titles that we have paid off but haven't received yet. Payroll. We had a very successful sale last week. I have 25 car deals on my desk. Did I mention that I handle this for two locations as the dealer owns two stores?
My co-worker is the cashier. So with her gone, I have to field the phone calls and wait on the customers too. I also have to work 8-6 instead of 8-5, because we have to have the coverage. The up side? I will be getting 10 hour of overtime this week. Which will help cover the snake we had to rent because the tree roots grew through our sewer pipes, and our sewer backed up the other day.
Yesterday was really bad. I had a gentleman from a local dealership we do business with yell at me and treat me poorly, then his boss called me and asked why I was treating him badly...
To which I explained to him that he might want to ask his employee why he was being short with me and treating me poorly because I was trying to help him while doing three other things, and it was his impatience that caused the issue.
Customers who are rude and impatient are a norm here too. I usually don't have to deal with that much because I usually don't have to cashier... but hey... I have big shoulders.
Three more days. Three more days. Three more days.
So I went home yesterday. I thought about taking a long walk with Hobie. But M wanted to talk to me about how badly our youngest is doing in school. She is hurting people full time now. Honeymoon period is over. It's not good. And there is nothing I can do. I can't stay at the school with her and make her behave (would be ideal... but I'm kind of the breadwinner of our household).
The walk didn't happen.
Want to know what I did?
I made the no bake cheesecake that has been sitting in the cupboard for forever.
I told M that I was going to sit and eat the whole thing.
He said he wanted 1/2. (he was stressed out from having to help my dad snake out our sewer drains).
So I gave him half, and sat down with the other half. Fully intending to eat it all.
I only ate one piece worth, and couldn't eat the rest. So I put plastic wrap on it and stuck it in the fridge. I guess the girls will get some tonight.
So I gave in. I tried to binge eat. And I could only eat a slice worth of Cheesecake. Still it was a horrible decision. When Hobie would have really enjoyed his walk with me.
Obviously I am still struggling with the whole self hatred thing. Maybe one day I will get over it. High stress situations make me hate myself even worse. At least I can identify that. Now to combat it....
So I blogged it out. Today is a new day. Color Run is coming up soon. I need to get back into running and just DO IT. I hope your days are going well!!!
P.S. Genius here volunteered to be the fundraiser booster parent for the Dance Company. WOO HOO. LOL. So any fundraiser ideas and suggestions are welcome. I plan on running at least one fundraiser a month for the next 9 to 10 months.
