Sometimes Life Kicks You In The Head

Advice of the day...

Instead of bitching, count your blessings and be thankful for what you've got. It could be worse.


So I get to work this morning, only to discover that the router for our computers is broken so that we can't work.
Then a note from my boss~she's in the hole with her business and beginning on July 1, she's closing the doors for a minimum 6 week 'hiatus' so that she can dig herself out.

Okay then.

A note for me: "Sorry I couldn't be there, *daughter* had an appointment this morning. Call me!"

What I should have done: Absorb the information, let it settle for a little bit, turn it over in my mind a couple of times, take a deep breath or two, then call her.

What I did: Called my boss immediately while I was still shocky and unsettled from the information, had an emotional breakdown coupled with a small anxiety attack and made a blubbering idiot out of myself, with the added bonus of making both her AND myself feel even worse about the whole fucking mess.

Go me.
I'm so cool.

So I get to come home a mere thirty minutes after arriving at work (but hoo-ah, I get reimbursed for my gas), and try to accomodate combat a rising (lowering?) feeling of depression by taking a three hour nap which has left me unrested, logy, and slightly headachy.

Some days, it just doesn't pay to get out of bed.


Seriously, if there's a Sugar Daddy out there just waiting for me...now would be a good time.
