This is just a rant. I’m having a pretty terrible day, and I just want to get it all out.
To begin with, I feel physically awful. I’m having a bad flare-up of my lupus/EDS-related autoimmune disease/tiny leprechauns painfully mining gold out of my joints/whatever the heck my problem is. I can barely walk because my right foot and ankle are in so much pain. I’m utterly exhausted and just feel crappy in general. On top of all that, I’m having either really bad allergies or I caught a cold. Either way, I feel like I’ve been hit by a truck. I would have just stayed home sick today if I could, but I’m running out of sick time already because of this whatever-the-crap-this-stuff-is. I just feel sick constantly. The doctor’s office is having difficulty scheduling my next follow-up with the specialist, too, so I might not get to see him again until August.
Next, I didn’t get to eat lunch because I had to go to the doctor’s office to pee in a cup just because my bladder wouldn’t cooperate last Friday.
Then I got the news this morning that Darling Husband and I have been screwed over by someone at my second job. To make a long story short, it was previously agreed that we could store two tons of materials we bought with our own money on site there. Now they’ve changed their mind, and they said we can’t. We live in an apartment and can’t store the box ourselves. So it looks like it’s all going to be thrown away. That’s only about $1000 that’s going down the drain. It also means that it’s going to be a lot more work for us tonight when we go to deal with it… And I mean hard physical labor, not desk work. And since I can barely freaking walk right now, and one of my wrists is completely useless for the same reason, I don’t know how much use I’ll be to my poor husband who will probably end up having to do the lion’s share.
I’m also just really annoyed with work right now. No real reason, but I am.
I want to be at home in bed with a pile of kittens. I feel so miserable right now, and there’s so much more crap that I need to do today, and I won’t get to just lay down and rest my aching body until way too late… and then just wake up tomorrow and do it all over again, but this time on less sleep.
I think I’m going to cry. 🙁
Baby animals make me feel better. Show me some adorableness! Bonus points if they’re making hilarious internet comments, too.

It sounds like you need a mega-dose of kittens!
Can you rent a storage unit for those materials? It might run you $50 a month, which isn’t bad considering how much you guys spent on them.

((HUGS)) Please don’t cry! Maybe we can make you laugh instead. I bet you’re feeling like this Monday-kitty:
But hopefully you’ll start feeling better soon. My Monday has been pretty crappy, too, like Mondays can be. I wonder why Mondays have to suck so much.
There is a woman in my office who grates on my nerves every day.
I don’t mean to be mean. But she has been coughing for TWO entire YEARS. Coughing, hacking her guts up, clearing her throat – non-stop, all day, every day – for two freakin’ years now. She is not a smoker! She has the most irritating and annoying cough I’ve ever heard and it’s so loud. Her office is all the way down the hall from mine and I still can hear it. I want to strangle her.
The only enjoyment I get from it is one of my co-workers and I send each other funny messages about it all day. His office is even closer, poor thing.
Who invented this work crap anyway?

@squishycupcake: We considered it, but we also have no way to transport the stuff. We don’t have a truck or forklift or anything to move the box it’s all in. We were able to get it down there previously because it was all previously in a bunch of tiny boxes. It has since been combined, though.
This is actually going to mean a ton more work for the other guy, too, so it really just doesn’t make any sense.
@Sunfire: I don’t know, but whoever they are, they’re dumb.

Aww. The little kitties and kind words definitely help. I think I would continue feeling better if I could get more baby animals, though.
