This week really sucks. I was exhausted all week and still am. I’ve been working twelve hour days at my two jobs, and will be working alllllll weekend (watching a teenager with autism from Friday to Monday). So the so-called holiday weekend will not be restful either.
Then today I went to the caterer, and the estimate was twice what I expected. FH and I left and I immediately burst into tears. I get to work, all mascara stained, and am greeted with people asking me “where were you???” even though CLEARLY it says on the online calendar and whitebaord that I would be in late.
I finally leave work and crank my car – sketchy noise. I decide to drive it to the dealer, get less than a mile, and there’s a pop, a bunch of smoke and burning smells, and the battery light comes on and then dies.
Now my car is at the shop and I am supposed to be cleaning the wreck of an upstairs in our house because three of FH’s friends are coming to stay the weekend – so they can all play while I slave away. Oh, and FH is at a Phish show.
I’m very grumpy. Sorry, I just needed to bitch some. I feel somewhat better now!

When it rains, it pours! I hope things improve next week.

Oh it sounds like you’re having an awful week! Don’t worry, things will get better. I know the feeling, like everything is coming down on you at once. Can you go out for a nice dinner tomorrow night with your fiance? I think you need some time away from your work, wedding, and car stresses.

Darlin’, you need a cocktail and fast! And even if you decide against the cocktail, I am about to make one for myself, and will *toast* to good car/budget health, non-fail co-workers, and a happy ending to your holiday weekend for you. (((Hugs)))

Ice cream sounds good! I hope things get better soon too, and that you get a break from work in the near future. 🙂

Sorry you are having a rough time, I hope it gets better! Ice cream and the Proposal are great medication though!

Hello ladies! Thanks for the encouragement, and the virtual cocktails. My car is fixed, the warranty is covering most of it, and it is FRIDAY. I’m baby sitting all weekend, but since my charge pretty much likes to do his own thing I plan on knocking out some projects, clipping some coupons, watching some TV and movies, and lounging by their pool. It’s not as fun as being “off” but it’s not so bad for working.
Here’s to Friday! Hooray!
(p.s. I promise I’m not bipolar….)
