I didn’t even have any coffee today/Original Facebook captions post

This is getting ridiculous. I am so hopped up on….crazy life stuff  that I have, in addition to frantically texting every single person I know non-stop– I have been updating my facebook thing every three seconds.

Which, ok, fine, I know is really lame. Especially when I have to do school. I mean, really? If I’m going to put so much energy into procrastinating I ought to read Sunshine or watch tv or something fun at least.

So I’ve come up with a solution that is going to allow me to salvage some dignity–but will still let the crazy energy to flow through me into the world…… Ah!

(oh and it’s hot today. I mean, I should have worn a tank top, shorts and sandals kind of warm. I was trying to ground the crazy by taking a walk and it didn’t work. Why am I against abusing behavioral medication? Because from what I hear adderol would probably be a bit more effective in helping me get my freaking homework done than the flower essences I’m taking)

Ok–here you go. Facebook Captions I am refraining from posting:

Pet sitting/boundaries/stress/self care/flirting

(Translation: HOLY SHIT)

(Jo, if this happens to be the ONE blog of mine you read—I LOVE YOU. 🙂

So apparently, my lesson this month is about having a realistic view of myself and my abilities.

And. so we’re learning what happens when I don’t have a clear grasp on reality and the word ‘yes’ comes out of my mouth far to often.

“Why, sure I can work extra cleaning hours this week while I’m training someone new and doing everything else that my job entails.”

“Why, sure I can do dishes at church tomorrow… I mean, I haven’t been to church in a month and it’s a 20 minute drive and the childcare closes before I’m done and I have a  three year old and Sunday’s are the only days I have completely off with John and I have  a paper due tomorrow and I’m leaving for The Place of Despair on Tuesday and….. and…….”

Things really aren’t too bad. I’ve been getting a lot better about setting good boundaries and protecting my emotional and mental health. (And, I refuse to feel guilty about it! You hear that? I REFUSE! Our society has such an unrealistic view about how much women are supposed to be able to accomplish. I mean, I am  supposed to be able to: Work a full time job, go to school full time, cook, clean, do other householdy stuff AND have a three year old while my partner works HIS full time job. Which is just crazy. And impossible. ….and anyone who looks at my bathroom can completely confirm this. Anyways.) (more…)

Artsy fartsy….fancy pancy

Posted on December 21, 2008. Filed under: Personal, School | Tags: , , , , , |

I’m discovering that I sort of hate pretentious artistic types.

I’m not talking about real artists.

Not that real artists can’t be pretentious, but it’s different.

I have a lot of artistic friends (painters, musicians, photographers—lots of photographers) and they just can’t help themselves. They have to be artistic or their brains will freaking explode.

Me? I’m a writer.

And I’m not a Writer…as in…”I write, THEREFORE I AM.” I just like to write. I think it’s cool. And because I have so many communications issues that if I don’t say what I’m thinking in some way or another I’ll bust my spleen. (more…)

Day without coffee #8

Posted on October 24, 2008. Filed under: Funny, General Musings, Personal | Tags: , , , , , |

UG.

(I was a very naughty girl and drank a glass of some lovely Spanish wine.)

(Not that the wine makes up for the coffee, though. I mean, SERIOUSLY.)

(Good news—I woke up anxiety stricken, so that was a decent caffeine substitute.)

(I think I might curl up in a ball on Satruday.)

(If I didn’t have to do school and work.)

So, um, cheers!

So what do you if your boss winds up in the ER?

Posted on October 11, 2008. Filed under: General Musings, Home, Personal, Work | Tags: , , , |

So I got a call at 5:34pm this past Sunday from my boss’s boyfriend informing me that she was desperately ill and was in the hospital.

What a week.

I have never been so extraordinarily glad that it is Friday.

It wasn’t as if I was jumping in to a smooth sailing business and taking over–no…….

The owner and the only other employee other than myself had both been very sick the week before. We had been hoping that they would both be up to speed so I could catch my breath (and not whatever they both had) and have enough people to meet client demands.

So things were already kind of tatters work wise

And I was hosting a dinner party that night at 6pm.

I think there’s some kind of cosmic curse on dinner parties. (more…)
