I am doing something that my Mom does that I call “having a stress ball” Maybe not quite on the same level she goes to but boy oh boy can I feel it welling up inside.
I do a lot of the adminstrativey type work for my step-dad. He owns/runs a trucking company but he is a working man’s man and doesn’t do so well with forms and permits and what have yu so it basically falls on me. I am the woman behind the operation (who doesn’t get paid enough) and as much as I love my family and don’t mind supporting them with what I do have (not money but time and business savy, which is the opposite of what they’re swimming in)
Sometimes he just gets me though!! They call me yesterday and I go out there at nine o’clock on a Sunday to help with “some office stuff” and next thing you know I am applying for licenses for words I have never even heard of and trying to collect and track down registrations ad transfer papers from truckers (who are notorious for being slow and late with anything paper related) and I have to get this stuff I don’t have to the insurance agent fourty minutes away so I can then get it on the courier by four even though all I have is a PO Box(which you can’t courier too) and the office I need to get ahold of to get a phsyical address is the goverment taxation office, who’s phone lines are so jammed up that I keep getting told that not only are all the agents busy, but the que is too full for me to even wait it. Ahhhhhh
I think I just may tip over and cry now. How come no one told me about this sooner?!? I find ut yesterday that he is leaving tomorrow at 4pm for a city ten hours away and not only should I have everything dealt with, I should probably drive him there too.
Jeepers beepers! Just venting, I feel a little better. Now if the e-mail would just get here already!!
