Is It Seriously Only Wednesday??

I try not to complain very often because it doesn't usually help things. On occasion, however, there are times when a little ranting is justified.

I can say with utter confidence that these are two of the most stressful days ever.  It started on Monday with me running late and having to stand in a freaking long line at the lab to get some bloodwork done. {I had to wait 30 minutes for the honor of getting my blood drawn.} Because of that, I was late to work. I had a really nasty customer yell obscenities at me. {It took a lot of restraint not to yell them back.} Then I went to the doctor and got some bad news {It's complicated, but I'm not sick or anything.}

On Tuesday, my car wouldn't start. I had it towed and found out it would cost an arm and a leg to fix. {Christmas really isn't the best time for expensive repair work.} I went to work and had an employee flake out on her shift. {It was an emergency, but still.}  I got some more disappointing news. {Family stuff.} Then I picked up my car and found that on top of everything, I also need new tires. I was going to get a new car soon anyways. So instead of doing all these repairs, I might as well just get one sooner.  {Only since I don't know anything about cars or buying them, I have to rely on my dad and my husband to help me, and I hate relying on other people.} But I still need to drive for the next few days, so I had to pay some of the aforementioned arm and leg.

Plus there is the constant worry about my business, which relies on funding from the state of California. {Yeah, the really really really bankrupt one.} And of course Christmas and Christmas presents and Christmas present wrapping and packing for Christmas vacation. {And I'm a perfectionist, so it all has to be just right.} On top of it all, there's my son and his ability to drive me nuts even on a good day {let alone a bad one.}

And now....I'm going to take a deep breath, say a prayer, and do as the picture says. We'll see how long it lasts.

I hope you're having a better week than I am!


  1. I hope the rest of the weekend goes a little bit better! Isn't it amazing how many things go wrong at this time of year:) Take care:)

  2. Mercury is in retrograde until 14th, so that why life has been so crappy lately. I'm sorry to hear that. But maybe some free clothes could cheer you up? Enter my StyleMint Giveaway for 5 shirts!

  3. Oh, no! These do sound like really rough days. It's so hard when things pile up like this. I hope you can get through it and have a better rest of the week and a wonderful weekend!


I love reading your comments...they're often the highlight of my day!
