ARGH! (2014 - Blog # 62)

Tuesday, March 04, 2014

Ok.. normally I am not one to get ticked off about work. BUT OH MY OH MY! And I am also one to work 15 or more hours a day .. doing reports, emails, follow ups etc after my 10 hours at work. It is my choice and I love it, so cool. BUT TODAY I AM TICKED! I get a message from my supervisor at 5:30 this afternoon that she forgot to tell me that I am presenting at a huge meeting tomorrow morning and I need to send HER a report by TONIGHT.

I am thoroughly stressed and need to get to this report and hopefully not look like a fool tomorrow morning since I am totally unprepared. Not my style at all.

I had another blog planned but I really have to get back to the report and do my best. I am sorry .. I feel like I am letting me and you down today.

At minimum I did get my workout in and I will be looking forward to REALLY working out tomorrow after the stressful meeting. I will be back in thoughtful form tomorrow.

I need to take a chill pill LOL :)

Quote of the day - which I really need to BREATHE in right now.. can you tell??????

    Secondly, if you can do what the quote says you are a much better woman than I.
    I know your presentation will be from what you know and from your heart, and it will be wonderful.
    Just remember to breathe and that you are...

    You will be emoticon . emoticon on getting in your work out. Your boss is a un- grateful person to forget in the first place. I know we all make mistakes but she is the boss and she knew about the presentation ahead of time. Feel bad for you having to pick up pieces for her. Good luck on your presentation, you will be emoticon .. emoticon

    I am hoping you have the type of relationship where you can talk to your boss when the presentation is over to discuss this. You said you don't mind working all the hours but I think it has given your boss the go ahead to keep throwing more work at you.

    Yep, last minute stuff CAN get us upset, and it CAN be just fine. Our decision.

    You'll do great!
