I normally don’t use this space to bitch and moan, especially about my work, but last week… last week was a piece of shit, and I’m so glad it’s over. I was tasked with helping on new lanes for a new customer – with zero knowledge of it previously, and I was slammed from every direction possible, while having my intelligence questioned every day by this customer – who seems to think that being a giant jerkwad is the way to motivate people. If you’ve ever been around me, you know I’m not of this school – I don’t do well with negative reinforcement, and I believe that being nice to people can actually get you pretty far – but not that asshole. I have worked well over 60 hours this week, and broke my rule of no week night drinking almost every night.
I really try to not ever let work get to me – after all, it’s only work and it’s not what life is about, but this week. This week hit me pretty hard. By this morning, I honestly had to just say, hey – I have done my time this week, and given more of myself than I should have to a job. So I sat down and tried to come up with a few good things that happened this week:
// I finally hit the leaderboard at Orangetheory for the 1600 meter row. I know that I am #10 way down at the bottom, but still?! Leader board!!!
// I won both of my brackets- work and family. Now I don’t have to buy a round of drinks at Pompano Joe’s during our beach trip at the end of this month.
//Sheffield and I got to have a pizza party while B was traveling this week. I turn into super fun mom while he is gone – pizza for dinner, eating in the living room while watching TV, and getting to stay up late. I remember some of those things happening with my mom when my dad was traveling, so I want to recreate that for boogs when daddy is away.
// Cocktail on Netflix. Enough said.
Here’s to hoping next week is better -B and I get a date night tonight and Robyn and her family are coming over for a little cook-out tomorrow.
