New Post

I know I haven't posted in a while. I know that this is not much of a post. I am tired. I have today hit a wall. I have not drank any caffeine since the beginning of May. I have resorted to coffee, and cappuccino the last couple of days. Now my stomach hurts. I am whiney and tired. However, I am radiant light.

I know that I AM radiant light. However I cant help to wonders some days why I even bother going to work. These are the issues I am having.
1. I have no overtime anymore.
2. If I am on call on the weekend I am expected to flex off and make straight time for being on call.
3. Because I am flexing off so I dont have overtime, I am expected to work on the Sunday I am on call, making pointless phone calls or take personal or vacation time to get my hours. Or be short.
4. I am now expected to talk to people, and help them over the phone with stupid no brainer problems, and I cant even count it as productivity anymore, because it is not face to face.
5. I have to endure being told that I am not productive enough because half of my day in the office involves the phone calls in issue number 4.
6. I now have a stupid red siren light that I have to look at daily, so we can be excited about new orders. Yippi!!!!! Good thing I am not eptaleptic.

Now that I have bitched, I am going to go back to being radiant light. I don't understand why I am the only one in my office that thinks all of the things above is absurd. And because I am the only one that voices my opinion, that makes me the one with the bad attitude. So I could keep going on with my list, but I wont because it does me not a bit of damn good.

Am I crazy?????

holiday season

Today, we did the pumpkin patch. Lots of dirt, lots of animals, and lots of pumpkins. It was exciting. I must say that the pig races were the best. Anyway, the kids had a lot of fun, as well did I. First we are focused on Halloween, which is my favorite, then Thanksgiving, then before we know it Christmas is here. Way too fast I might add. I counted today and there is only 5 paydays until Christmas. I really want to be able to sit back and enjoy the holidays, but I can see with time flying it will be here and gone before we know it. I will be rushing around until the very last minute and then it will be over. Sad, Sad, Sad.

New favorite motto

I'm not here, so cry me a river, build me a bridge and get over it!!

I am sad to say that Arial and Shrimp both passed away today. Both children are slightly sad. I think that they got over it fast though, because now they are asking for a beta.

Joys of Childhood, frustrations of parenthood.

Today the children and I went to a family fun day in Blue Springs. Very exciting. It was free, free, free. They had live music, free food, free jumpy, bouncy things, and free games. At the free games, one of the prizes was free goldfish, which both of the children won. This then led to a not so free trip to Walmart, so that these fish that will probably live 24-48 hours. However they had to have proper living arrangements. Which by the way does not include one fish bowl, because they had to have separate living quarters so each child could have their fish in their room. However, it was all worth it because both children went to bed with smiles on their faces, as well did Shrimp (Jake's goldfish) and Ariel (Meg's goldfish). Hopefully they will still be alive in the morning.

another day

Just another day. Same old s**t, different day.
My question is why anytime you say something to a child, there response always starts with "yeah but"
