Serenity Now

So we go from the sublime to the ridiculous. Was told to come up here to get a project back on track to meet a deadline. Then once here, was told that there isn't enough coming through the production process to have enough work to do. And sure enough, today, those of us who put aside our lives to come here ran out of work to do. And the solution is right in the hands of those around us - print more documents - but they claim they can't, they don't have the capacity and we must wait on MY team back in the other location to ship the stuff to us. In addition to this ridiculousness, I've had to lower my standards because I'm being told to overlook obvious technical errors in light of getting the project out the door. And last but not least, my team back at the other location is in primetime drama mode with inter-personal / work issues DESPITE the rush work.

I want a work life that is not chaotic. I guess that is too much to ask when some people do not even have jobs.

Serenity now, George!

So here I am, rambling away. I could use a nap. I'm on my 5th type of medicine. One large bottle of Robitussin DM - didn't work. One entire package of Sudafed Complete 24 Hr - didn't work. One entire package of Alka Seltzer Mucus and Congestion - didn't work. However, now for the most part I am better, thanks to a fabulous Alka Seltzer Sinus and Muscinex cocktail. Cheers! Side effect: nose so dry it bleeds. Ah well.

I keep closing my eyes and falling asleep while awake. LOL Hmmm. Good thing the hotel isn't far from the plant.

Love that my boys took the first game from the Angels. Especially with Jon Lester on the mound!

My Chemistry_Not.com profile has been quieter than top secret CIA files. Go figure. Every time I see one of their TV commercials I laugh. What a joke.

So let me ask you all, what do you do when a man you know is depressed? I'm not sure I've ever really had to deal with a depressed man. I guess you just stand back and let him work it out? Not exactly like I can push some meds down his throat or shine some sunshine up his ass.

Seattle is depressed. But he's acting like a bit of a spoiled brat. Is that a Libra trait? His laptop is busted and he can't afford to fix it. He said his 30th birthday was lousy and he doesn't want to talk about it. Looks like our October rendezvous is postponed (my unexpected business trip, his financial woes) to December. My birthday. Well, I can think of less enjoyable ways to celebrate turning 39. We'll see. I guess it is nice to think about if nothing else. But I wanted more than something nice to think about, if you know what I mean.

I want, I want, I want. Yeesh, I bettah shudduppppp!

There's not much you can do for him hon. If he's depressed just listen when he needs to talk and try not to be too pushy. He'll come around, but if he doesn't he may want to talk to someone.

How bout them Red Sox!!!!????

Yea, Mr. P has been a little moody lately too. Ergh. Men and their damn moods. They don't have to have babies, they don't have periods, they don't have cramps, they don't have to go to the gyno once a year.... what the hell is there to complain about?????

Somedays life just blows. Just sit by, watch it go on, and muddle through. Your guy will see that.
And don't we all want want want? Lol...

One thing I realized about comfort eating that I can recognize it before I actually put that food in my mouth. I often want to eat something bad when I am balancing my check book or when I get in a fight with someone. I have to think about it to justify it before I go and buy that chocolate peanutbutter cheesecake haha. Maybe stopping to determine why you want to eat it will help! But please don't beat yourself up when you do eat off plan. If this is a lifestyle change you have to consider that there will be stumbles but in the big scheme of things you ARE making progress to a more healthy YOU! You're fabulous lady :-)

you're like butter to me

Just a Lovable Party Girl
Sagittarius is born to travel the world and move upwards and outwards. Naturally gregarious, they love the idea of meeting different people and understanding foreign cultures. There is also a desire to broaden the mind too, with the possibility of many Sagittarians being lifelong students. Their outlook is generally optimistic and there is a distinct lack of concern over the smaller, practical details. A great sense of humor and a lack of petty mindedness are Sagittarian qualities too. Sagittarius is open -- open-minded, open-hearted and generous, up to a point. They like to get value and will not be quite so impulsive with their cash but they do have a natural ability to get on with people from many varied walks of life. They have an innate sense of wanting to help others and give them a hand up the ladder and can be wonderful and exciting companions. Expect an honest answer when you ask a question and maybe some long philosophic discussions into the night. Jovial, optimistic, versatile, open-minded, philosophical, sincere, frank, visionary.
