I have officially become the grinch

Starting Wednesday this week has really gone down hill fast.

The clients are mad because we could not work Monday and Tuesday. I am sorry but putting my employees lives at risk on icy roads is just not going to happen! So we have been behind for the past 2 days with clients jumping down my throat about why this has or has not been done.

We usually get our Christmas bonus checks with the last paycheck before Christmas. There was not one. None of the bosses in our corporate office will confirm if we are getting one or not. If I do not get it in enough time to use it for Christmas what freaking good is it!?

I have really been looking forward to our office Christmas party (tonight) all week. Kind of as a way to destress and get to spend some adult time. Now my babysitter has canceled on me. Wanted to know if I could not find someone else as she feels "slightly under the weather." HELLO IT IS 1:30 THE DAY OF THE PARTY AND I KNOW ALL OF 4 PEOPLE IN THIS STATE!!!!

I have been in a rotten mood for the past 3 days and I can't seem to shake it. All I want to do is curl up in bed and cry, but I have too many responsibilities/things to do to even be able to do that.

Take a few deep breaths - open your back door - scream at the top of your lungs! It may make the neighbors wonder, but you'll feel better.

Sorry you're having such a rough time. I'm probably not the right person to cheer you up, because I'm having some bad feelings myself right now.

But like my Granny used to say, "This too will pass."

So sorry you are having such a rotten day/week. I am sure you were looking forward to the party. I hope it works out that you are still able to go.

This may not help you tonight, but you may check into the Gymboree program and their parent's night out programs. I used to take Megan there some and the staff is all very nice. It would be an option for you every now and then.

I'm so sorry, Natalie.. I hope you can find a sitter so that you can enjoy the party.. This economy problem is wide-spread now--and many, many folks are suffering this year. Hang in there (easy for me to say, huh)---for I'm sure things will get better SOON.
