What a week. I need to vent.
First, let me start off by saying, I like my job. I have been with the same company since before the invention of the wheel, and have filled several positions in the company. I currently am doing Purchasing. I did this job before and hated it, mostly because it was combined with a ton of other things and I wasn’t able to do it properly. But due to some cutbacks in the company, it was necessary for me to return to this department. I still am very busy with a ton to do, but I have support now that I didn’t have before, a coworker who is also a very dear friend who listens to me bitch and is very good about helping me out with my overflow.
So I’m busy. Which is good, cause I’d much rather that then bored. But I now have two huge monthly reports to do, and I’m splitting my time between two departments. I just feel like I get my reports from the previous month done and it’s the end of the month again.
So this, and I have to make sure that I don’t run out of anything. This week I ran out. Crisis central. It was a combination of several things, including the fact that I’ve only been back at this job for a couple of months and am still working on getting a system in place that works well for me. This and the customer requirements going through the roof, etc, etc.
Combine the fact that my kid has been getting up in the night the past two nights, and was up for the day today at 5am. Add to that the huge puke he had all over the couch and rug last night after a coughing fit. Then this morning I woke up to…wait for it….no hot water. If you know me, you know I need a shower or I am not able to function. So a cool shower for me. There just hasn’t been enough coffee this week for me.
There is always a bright side. We got my sons pictures done this week and he was an angel for them. I am so happy with the way they turned out. He is the apple of my eye and is always able to make me smile. I am a lucky woman in the family department. I have a wonderful husband, son and parents to support me. I am going to visit a friend who has a cottage in Bayfield this week. I had hoped to take a day or two off to visit her, but with what was going on at work, that just wasn’t possible. But I will see her tomorrow and am planning on taking my son to the beach for the first time. I can’t believe he’s three and this will be his first time. I’m excited for that.
So that’s it, I just needed to vent. I have three or four book reviews to do for this blog, but they can wait.
Here’s hoping for a fantastic (read: quiet, uneventful) Friday, and I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.
If you read this far, thanks for indulging me.
