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!!
