Monday Monday

can't trust that day,
Monday Monday, sometimes it just turns out that way
Oh Monday morning, you gave me no warning of what was to be
Oh Monday Monday, how could you leave and not take me.

hey folks. it's the fourteenth day of january in a year that is supposed to be a good one for us. by all calculations this was going to be a great year. so far it sucks balls big time.

three people in our office got laid off today. not any of my close friends, thank goodness, but it's still not a comforting thought. we're all expendable.

i'm slowly crawling out of this funk that's been hanging over me. my stomach was upset all day yesterday thinking about returning to work today. it's this conference. it and everything that surrounds it. i could do my job so much better if i didn't have this damn conference hanging over me like the shadow of death. everything suck ass about my job is tied to this some how. i know that my job is not my life but damn it's hard not to let it bring me down. i've been antsy and anxious. i wake up in the middle of the night thinking about work. it's always in the back of my mind.

on a brighter note--the girl, my first born, turns 11 this week. once again she has somehow conned us into a lengthy celebration. her actually birthday is thursday so we're going out to dinner. she initially wanted a friend party on saturday, complete with a sleepover and then the family party on sunday. we've talked her into combining the parties on saturday. oy vey.

and the thing is, part of my life is going so very well. the hubs is doing a great job as the cfo. i actually think he gets off on it : ) personally we're doing great. he's still sporting the beard, though i think it will be gone soon. he says it's uncomfortable. itchy. i'm fine if he shaves it, he still looks hot with the glasses.

so i've added another blog to my list on the right. a good friend of mine finally joined the blogosphere and she is much, much more politically minded than i am. she's down right informed and intelligent about the topic, regardless of which side of the fence you're on. i'm still undecided frankly.

i so need a huge dose of stress relief.

I have a stress-relief idea: Let's go to see Johnny Depp on the big screen on Sunday afternoon! I'll check to see if it's still on and e-mail you.

Oh, and GP, don't worry, I won't call you "BM." :)

Sweet T
