Is It Possible To Have A Case Of The Wednesdays???

I swear, today is just like a Monday!! I woke up late, I got a call from my babysitter, asking if I was going to work today. Well of course, I didn't call you and cancel for today, did I? So THAT'S how my day started off. I flew to the city, because I had a meeting for work at 0800. I was told that I didn't need my computer, so I didn't take it into the meeting. I get there, and I'm the only person without a computer. How embarassing. Thankfully, I took my computer home yesterday, because I had some work to do, so I was good to go. I get all set up, and the damn power strip isn't working!! No big deal, I got another power strip, we were in business! When the meeting started (around 0845 because thankfully I wasn't the only late one), I determined that there was absolutely NO reason for me to be there. This class was for people who worked in the units, not for me, because I work at state and don't use that system. So I sit through a class for four hours, listening to information I didn't need! I finally got back to work, and I started looking over my latest project, which is a revision of the handbook that is due on Thursday, at noon. I was given this project YESTERDAY. Good times. So I'm working on this project, and I was told that it had already been done, by someone who doesn't work in my department anymore. Why would she do it, she hasn't worked in this department since 1 November 2010?? That doesn't make any sense!! Apparently, I'm not competent enough in my abilities to get the job done. Whatever. The icing on the cake, however, is the fact that my loyal BFF is still sitting at her desk, looking pretty, like there is nothing wrong. There IS something wrong, she's supposed to be a secretary now!! But NOOOO....why would anyone tell her she needs to leave?? That would just upset the poor sweet innocent girl, who has done nothing wrong. Who cares?? She broke the rules, she needs to pay for that!!!! It is NOT okay for her to still be working with me!!! Whatever.

Needless to say, I have not had the best week!! Thankfully, tomorrow is going to be a short day, because we have the company picnic, and Friday will be a short day, because it's the day before the holiday, and next week will be short, because it's Independence Day, so I WILL get a break!! There is just entirely too much drama up here.

Sorry for the rant/ramble, I needed to get that off my chest!! I feel better, do you?? =)

We have water!!!

I just wanted to update that my evening has been a LOT better than my day was!! We have water!! My super amazing husband fixed it!! =) I'm really excited to take a shower!! Yay!

Another great note, I hit an all time high with Tara this evening. She had to go to bed early, because she didn't want to eat her dinner. She went to bed around 7:15, and I went in her room to check on her at 7:30, and she was trying to go to sleep. She started crying, and she told me that she feels like no one loves her. It was really heartbreaking. We talked for a while, and then I told her to scream, as loud as she can. At first, she was REALLY embarrassed about it, and then she started screaming. I told her that sometimes I yell when I'm mad, that it helps to release some frustrations or ANGRY energy. She eventually just starts screaming over and over again, and she finally got the point of my exercise. I told her that we love her, it just makes us sad when she acts the way she does. I think overall, we had a huge breakthrough!! =)

Lastly, I've had a fun night crafting!! I finished painting my birdhouse, and I'm moving on to making my bookmarks and journal! How fun!!

My turn for a case of the Mondays....

Today has DEFINITELY been a Monday!! I just want to go home and go back to bed!! Today has not been good.

First off, my water well is broken. We have NO water. None. Second, my daughter is still sick, still has a fever, and I have to leave her and go to work. She is in very capable hands, I just HATE having to leave her, especially when she acts really sad like she has been lately. Third, I've tried to contact SEVERAL people today, trying to get answers to questions, and NO ONE is around. Fun. Fourth, a lady came into my office today, asked her question, I gave her my answer, and it wasn't good enough. I tried calling people, again, and NO ONE answered. AGAIN. So, this lady sat at my desk, for twenty minutes, complaining about the smell of paint, and the lack of air conditioning. I told her several times that there was nothing I could do for her, but she just sat there. Finally, she told me that she was going to wait in the hall, which was fine I guess. She sat out there for a while, and then came back in and asked if I had figured anything out yet. NO!! I CAN'T HELP YOU!!! She gave me her email address and told me to email her with what I figure out, and she gave me some lady's name at the VA and told me to find her email address or phone number, so she can contact her. That is what the PHONE BOOK is for!!! Grr!!

Today was just a rough day all around. Hopefully when I get home I'll have water, and my baby will not be feeling yucky anymore, and I can have a fantastic night, sitting with my family in the semi-cool house, crafting my little heart out!!!

So I know it's been a while since I've posted, it's really hard to post, what with life going on and everything! I've been having a really difficult time lately, trying to decide which avenue I want to go down, and sticking with it. Do I want to do arts and crafts? Do I want to learn how to sew? Do I want to blog? Do I want to learn HTML? Do I want to get a part time job? What do I want?? It's been a rough couple of months, trying to make a decision. I still haven't made one, but I'm still contemplating! Any suggestions? Let me know!!!
