My answer to my stress - What's up with Kitty!

Thursday, April 25, 2013

I so wanted to blog yesterday but the day just wasn’t having it!

Good news is there is nothing wrong per se. The stress I’ve got right now is mostly plain busy. Like today:
Up at 5am
Leave for work at 6
Leave work at 3pm
Pick-up race packet at 4
Dentist at 5 (this is where I need the jet)
Spiritual gathering at 7 (and it’s at my HOUSE)
Maybe bed by 10?

I’ve had 3 out of 4 days like that this week. So like I said, nothing BAD, just busy/crazy stress. Add the stress here at work: CFO is mad at me as I made him look bad, the wonderful ducky people I work with (can sarcasm drip off a blog?), and all the Medicare changes that I am just supposed to KNOW by me great telekinetic ability (they would be in SOOO much trouble if I was Jean Grey). Water in the basement, roof sprung a leak, and car needs new tires (did two Monday!)

Finally, I have court tomorrow! I got a ticket for a blown stop sign. On my mother’s GRAVE I did not blow that stop sign. Didn’t even rolling stop – I would have hit the car in front of me. But I got the ticket, and they don’t allow you to just pay it in East Chicago. No, you have to take the day off work, stand in front of a judge and say what? “No your honor, I know I stopped with a full forward and back rock because it was dark and there were people out but the officer said I didn’t and I was alone so there is no proof either way so how much do I owe?” I mean really?!? Cop v/s goth – I lose!

Hey, my girls are healthy. I’m healthy. We might not be able to fix things but we are making the bills. Car is drivable - just have to take it easy. And I broke 137 for the first time in 5 months! So let’s just “woo hoo” and move on!

My only way to deal with life when it gets like this is humor, and mine can be a bit twisted so:

    I'm just now catching up on my friend feed for the last several days, so sorry for the late comment...but two things:

    #1 Congrats on 137#!!! Awesome job!
    #2 I LOVE LOVE LOVE the last quote "pee on it and walk away" I about died! I'm going to have to steal that one.

    Hope you are having a good weekend!

    That's awesome that you made 137! Woo hoo!

    Congrats on the 137. I hit 137 Sunday morning. We'll see if it lasts, it doesn't usually.

    I hope things go your wary at court. Just yell out "YOU'RE NOT THE BOSS OF ME!" Okay maybe not.

    I hope for a smooth weekend. I'll be thinking about you in your 5K while I'm running mine!

    Well done on 137 emoticon

    As for the rest I work on the principle if I can't do anything about it just let it go, and if I can do something, do something.

    (oh and it is appalling that cop v goth is always a cop win - grrrrrr)

    Oh my gosh, I hate it when weeks like this happen... nothing bad, just everything all the time. Life in the Fast Lane. I don't do the fast lane. :) I hope things settle down for you.

    Sorry you have to go to court for a stop sign violation. This is my area. I'm a court clerk and where we are, if anyone just wants to pay, we let them mail it in. Almost anything to keep the court days as short as possible. :) Maybe the judge will give you a break.

    Hey, weekend's nearly here. You got this. :)

    Hang in there!! Do what you can for what can be changed or improved on and pee on the rest! Relief will come around! emoticon

    The week is almost over. You'll make it through. Take full advantage of the weekend . Sounds like you're ready for it and deserving a few days reprieve.

    I drove a CTA bus in Chicago, one summer. You can't imagine the nutso things you see on the street from the high, slow bus driver's seat, including tickets that weren't given, and those that were, but shouldn't have been.

    A very stressful job; but, most entertaining.

    pee on it and walk away indeed.

    Sounds like we've both had crummy weeks. Let's just hope it's out of both our systems now and next week will be back to normal. Of course that's only if the weight of my to do stickies doesn't crush me.

    Sorry about the ticket and court. That sounds to be the worst of it, stress wise, anyway. That is so odd that they make you go to court over a moving violation; where I live it's pretty much a known fact that traffic tickets are just an extra way for the county and city to make revenue, so the last thing they want to do is waste any of their time or money paying attention to you in court. Good luck and hang in there!

    Ugh, I hate tickets like that! Good luck, maybe you'll just get a warning from the judge!

    And take a day off this weekend!!!!

    Congrats on getting to 137. emoticon emoticon

    I'm nearing finals week in college, so I can imagine how you're feeling with all this stress and busyness!
    emoticon You got this - just keep going!

    You're healthy, your dogs are good, life is good, it just has some speed bumps every once in a while, that often come in clusters!
    Hang in there, and if Chicago's traffic court is anything like the ones here, you can probably get a reduced or waived fine, if this is a first one. Just be open, honest and
    calm! Good Luck!

    Yup . . . if I were a dog, I'd be a'pee'ing! LOL

    What . . . you don't have either a crystal ball or ESP to keep up on the "latest and greatest" Medicare changes (WTH . . . if you BLINK you miss 'em!) Sheesh. I was home health care nurse and would care for Medicare patients. Before leaving on my visits I'd call the "kind" folks @ Medicare to make sure the services required were covered (because the agency didn't want us doing things that weren't covered. That's a whole 'nuther answer, so I'll move on). Anyway, 1/2 the time the rules would change twice while I was on the phone! ACK!

    ((((HUGS))))) Wishing you luck in court. Officer vs. ANYONE . . . the officer is going to win. MAYBE the officer won't show up????

    Hang in there sweets. Breathe. ((((HUGS))))) Thought you needed some more!

    Wow, that is quite a lot of things to be stressed about. But you are correct in looking at the bright side. Not much that you can do about the crap. Congrats on your 137! That is awesome! Way to go! (I vaguely remember where that is)

    Excuse my language, but is that where the expression "piss on it" comes from ~ a dog. emoticon

    Breathe ~ breathe ~ close your eyes and reflect on your statement about being healthy.
    Don't let the stress affect your health.

    Love your blog, and it is a good way to relieve stress ~ unless your retire, like me !!

    I wish I could do more than just pee on those things that cause me stress. Happy to hear that this isn't anything serious or health related. My schedule has been a lot like that lately with softball season. One more month to go and I can breath a sigh of relief. Do some meditation the next time you use the restroom. Blame it on constipation. Then smile.
