Double Whammy

Friday, February 15, 2013

Well, last nite we went to dh's cousin's. We had a nice supper and then went into living room. Next thing I knew she had viciously verbally assaulted me. Both my dh and hers sat there and said nothing. Then she asked if we still wanted to play cards. I was in shock and asked dh to respond. So, we played cards... very uncomfortably. Her dh had picked us up, otherwise, I would have gone to my car and left immediately. She noticed that I was in obvious pain and her attitude totally changed and she wanted to take me to the hospital etc. etc. Anyway, her dh drove us home and it was uncomfortable in the car as well.

When we got in house, dh and I had a very long discussion. He had no idea what had happened either. I think our friendship is more than over. She is a very unstable woman, and these 2 weak men did nothing and I was so blindsided, I allowed her to bully me. Why does this always happen to me? Trying to ever find positives in all situations, at least we won't have to listen to her preach JW at us anymore.

Similar things like this have happened to me too numerously this past couple years. Here I think I am being nice and people think they can walk all over me...

This a.m, I got a call from the job I thought I would be starting at as soon as the funding came through. She requested that I come for a further interview at 1, it was 11 at the time. When I got there, I was introduced to a 3rd person, and then verbally had the job description read to me. Then I was requested to basically Stand and Deliver. I had to do a bank reconciliation, a pay stub and complete a government remittance form... all off the cuff and without sufficient information. I requested the information I needed and successfully completed the required jobs... She said they would let me know by day's end.

So about an hour and a half later, I got a call from the 3rd person, I had met only today, and she was informing me that someone else had been selected for the job. Then she was very nice and offered me contact information for 2 other possible job contacts. I have never had this done before.

It's been a bad day.

But, I did make us a very nice supper. I made a lamb meatloaf with a thai Sidekick noodle, and mashed turnip and carrots with onion greek yogurt mashed in, and a pea salad.. It was all delicious. Good thing I can treat myself well, cuz it seems like the world is taking their shots at me.

    What a combination of negatives...there must be something wonderful on the horizon! :) I'm not making light of your pain, not at all, so please don't misunderstand. It just seems in my own life that after a nasty combination of things such as you've experienced, something beautiful is just around the corner. The trick is to be ready to see it, and not be distracted by how all the nastiness makes us feel.

I don't know if you know Annie924, but she has a slogan that helps me when I feel the way you've described. It's "Take a deep breath. It's just a bad day, not a bad life." That thought makes me feel better after whammies like yours of late.

Your solution of the fantastic meal was simply PERFECT! Each item sounded different from anything I usually prepare, and as if I would love it. Thank you for the blog as well as the food ideas!

    Oh, Lila, I wish it wasn't so. If I could make this dark cloud go away from you, I would do it in a heartbeat. Saying to cheer up doesn't cut it. Remember that you are a great person, however, and there must be some divine plan for you.

    Your day was stinky..that woman is a posionous viper. You don't attack someone in your house and then change tactic and say "let's play cards". That is cruel and vicious. Glad that you staying away from her., As for the men, I don't get it.

Sorry about the job...there is something better out there.

You are a kind loving person and many people think that kind means weak. It doesn't and I know it is hard(because I have trouble with this too) but don't back down, don't blink , and count to 10. If you haven't thought of something to rebut with, then remove yourself from the situation if you can. Ok, I hope some of this is helpful. At least you know I am on your side and I would gladly kick that woman's ankles for you if I were there...

Getting like a protective bear in my old age.... emoticon
