Dear Diary Friday...

Ah, what a WEEK! I'm glad it is almost over....

I made it through work yesterday and headed over to my folks house to check on my Mom's stitches. She had two biopsies done on Tuesday and now she has a few stitches that make it hard for her to take a bath, so I hung out while she took a REALLY quick bath, I cleaned the stitches up and put bandaids on them and then headed home. Once I got home, I did a couple of things around the house, took a bath, and settled down to start my new book....and fell asleep! I knew I was tired but I didn't think I was THAT tired.

Unfortunately, I woke up this morning with a horrible headache...the kind of headache that gives you blurry vision. I think most of it is PMS and the other part is just being tired. A hell week at work will due that for you, I guess. However, I know that after 3:00 today, I will be able to relax all weekend....except for when I take my Mom grocery shopping.

Dear Diary Thursday....

Well, yesterday went right down the shithole at work! I ended up working until 7:00pm last night trying to fix SEVERAL problems. Now, don't get me wrong....I do not have any issues with fixing problems. My gripe? The fact that we were told that other areas, areas that are specifically CREATED to do the job of RESEARCH AND RESOLUTION for the CSC's (me) are too overwhelmed, too busy to do THEIR JOB....even though they have hired additional staff. Now, does that make sense to ANYONE? I work in a call center, I deal with over 200 e-mails every single day, have other departments that come to me for help, enter documents all day long for other team members, have the largest high profile client we have...but now I get to do another team's job on top of it? Oh and the problems that I stayed late for last night.....created by a whole OTHER team and they can't fix it....but I got to stay late and fix it. My boss, while he was walking out, made the stupid decision to ask me if I was "okay".....wrong thing to ask somebody who is putting in a 14 hour day....and he found out exactly how "un-okay" I am. I am pretty sure he expects to come into work today and not have me here at my desk and to have my desk cleaned out....that is how ugly I got. Good news for today....we are all getting Cafe Rio for lunch, which will be good. Oh, and the other good news....I WON'T BE STAYING LATE AT WORK FOR THE REST OF THE FUCKING WEEK!

And did I mention I have PMS?

Dear Diary Tuesday...

That drive home last night was not even a little bit of fun! The roads here in town had not been plowed OR salted so they were nothing but ice and the freeways were not much better. I stopped by my folks house on the way home to have dinner with them, and then Dylan and I headed home to relax. It was really nice to just be able to sit for a couple of hours and read.

Today, I am leaving work early to take my Mom to a doctor's appointment, then we are going to get the shopping done so we don't have to worry about going out the rest of this week in the endless amount of snowstorms that are coming in. Dylan is going to be working OT today and the next two days, so I will not be able to see alot of him, again, until Friday and the weekend. However, the weekend is going to be GREAT because we are going to stay inside all weekend and cuddle and relax. I am really needing some relaxation time right now because I am PMSing. Not as bad as I normally due (Bette Living Through Pharmaceuticals) but it has kicked my ass this month and I am just tired all the time.

Oh, and guess who got called for Jury Duty.....

Dear Diary Monday...

Ain't that wind fun!!!

Congrats to Toni and Rob for the new baby! I am so excited to meet my new nephew, Tweak and to bring him gifts!!! He is ADORABLE!!!!

Weekend was "okay". Friday I got home, took the folks to dinner, and then did somethings around the house....nothing too exciting. Saturday we ended up not going to see a movie, which was actually for the best because during dinner with Dylan, I got EXTREMELY sick and we ended up having to go home. Dylan was also so exhausted that he was a danger being on the road, so it was all good. Sunday we got up and went shopping and came home and CRASHED! We got through some TiVo and just relaxed. Dylan was still exhausted so he spent the day napping on the couch until I forced him to go to bed early. All in all, not the weekend I expected but still good.

Color for today: Silver
