It's a cold and rainy day here in Houston today... and that doesn't even begin to be a part of the reason that I'm in one of the most foul moods I've seen in a very long time.

Lets see - I woke up regularly today, and actually might have felt a little better than I have recently. I decided to go to work early today so that I could leave at 3:30... I suffered through another day of doing two jobs, but at about 3:30 things turned bad... my boss's boss decided that instead of letting us go home and enjoy our weekend - he'd turn into a monster and belittle us in a way that only he can.

Somehow he has a way of making you feel like you're a complete idiot, and you'll sit there and agree with him... then go back to your desk and get so upset for letting someone talk to you in that manner - I mean I wouldn't let my parents or husband talk to me like that - so why should he be allowed to do that?! It's very much a pride swallowing lesson in humility... and is one of the single biggest reasons that I start having anxiety attacks about going back to work on Sunday afternoons... I know it's silly, but just thinking about the week that lays ahead makes me want to crawl in a hole!

At any rate - instead of being able to leave at 3:30 and come home to get a jump start on the weekend with John... I ended up working until 5:30 and then sitting in traffic for 2 hours. I feel like a total baby because I'm complaining about work again - I don't think I've done in a long time - and promise to not do it again for several more months... but as I finally sit down in my chair in front of a lovely fire my husband built to keep me warm... all I can think is CALGON...take me away!!


  1. Aw, Kim, I'm so sorry. I have worked in one job that felt a bit like that and it was in a veterinary hospital. The owner/head vet always treated the front office staff like crap and it was horrible. It can give you anxiety and a sense of just not wanting to be there and in order for companies to retain people, they should really treat them better!

    My vote is to spend the weekend taking care of you! Relax, scrapbook, do some walking, but just take it easy and give yourself some mental rest! I've always tried to tell myself when I am in a dark place that I am exactly where God wants me to be right now, even if I don't understand the WHY.

  2. Oh, and you inspired me...I actually ebayed some scrapbooking supplies today and am thinking about giving it another go, even though I sucked at it the last time!

  3. I'm so sorry your Friday wasn't better! I've had some awful bosses too, and it's so strange how they can manipulate you into thinking they're right... and then you later realize what they were doing. Counting down the days until the teaching certificate!!
