I am trying to build a house, sell a house, work a full time job, and help my wonderful son who not only just got a speeding ticket  but also a notice from his university yesterday that he owes $3,000 in tuition by – wait for it – tomorrow.  OMG!  Student loan screw up !! Again!!  AAAARRRRGGGGHHHH!! (edited to add caps)  

Ok, I feel better now.  Thanks!

I’ve been trying to fix my office’s voicemail system for like a week. No one calling in could leave a message for ANYONE. I tried everything. I learned the phone system from top to bottom – not an easy feat considering all of the manuals are written for people who understand the lingo. Finally, after stressing out for days on end (and endless phone calls to the most USELESS phone company ever), someone came out to check it out and it ended up being the SIMPLEST FIX EVER. I am so MAD at myself for not figuring it out and so pissed that it took these idiots a WEEK to come out and fix the problem. UGHHHHHHHHHHHH.

At least I don’t have to take messages by hand anymore. Stress gone!

  • Windows being installed at my parents house and having to watch a dog having a major panic attack.  She scratched me up pretty good the other day.
  • Found out mom who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer needs chemo and radiation even though she is Stage 1
  • Leg, ankle, and knee hurt due to weather changes (I have rheumatoid arthritis.)
  • May not be able to go to Six Flags’ Fright Fest this weekend due to rain
  • Boss knows I am not happy on my current team and has told me to look for other teams.  I am not in trouble but she knows this is not the best match for me.  (Overqualified.)  I hope they aren’t trying to “get rid of me.”

Can I just moan? I’m losing my voice. I woke up nice and sick with a respiratory infection this morning and I’m simply too shaky to make it into work. This is a problem because my cultures need to be harvested today and my boss aka my only co-worker is having eye surgery today so he can’t do it either. aaargh. I hope those things don’t die and the induction lasts until tomorrow morning.

I got my car back from the shop less than a week ago and now it’s making funny noises and the check engine light is on!

I’m just annoyed about life in general today. Nothing is going right. At least it’s nearly the weekend.

I am furloughed and broke bc we are closing on our house this month. We ended up having to switch lenders bc our original lender did not allow flooring allowances, so we ended up having to come up with more money for closing. Plus, BOTH of our cars broke down–that ate up a lot of our savings. I am the “breadwinner”, so we really depend on my income. (Especially right now since we are using almost all of our savings for the house and other unexpected costs.) I applied for unemployment, but have not heard back yet. The worst part tho? We cant close until the government opens back up and they can verbally verify my employment one last time.  Our lease runs out soon and we literally have nowhere to go bc they already leased out our current place. I am so very, very scared and overwhelmed.

-I’m organizing a community art exhibit that’s, in addition to being one problem after after another, opening the weekend I have a GIANT cupcake order due.

-I have jury duty.

-I’m baby-sitting my little sister for the entire week while my mom goes on vacation.

-I have an entire living room full of merchandise for a website we’re launching that will sit there until I put use the products to make giftbaskets to sell at an upcoming craft show.

-I have A TON of stories to catch up on for a writing group I’m in.

-My Mother-In-Law is coming to town to visit this tomorrow.

So, what do I do? I decide to hand-paint Dia de los Muertos skull masks for DH and I to wear to a wedding Halloween wedding we’re going to Saturday. Because I clearly don’t have enough going on. /:
