Stressed out

Have you ever had one of those days when everything seems out of control? That appears to be my life lately. I want to blame Mercury in retrograde for it all. Which means, for 3 weeks, nothing is going to go as planned. My job has really been stressing me out lately. I started 4 months ago but I still feel like the newby. They are doing all kinds of audits and Ive been assigned a new job duty that I really don't like. As a single mother Ive learned to eat alot of crow. Sometimes the crow turns into crap sandwiches and those are a little harder to digest. The days go by very quickly but I'm so exhausted by the end of the day, its hard to get my household things done. I know this too shall pass because it always does, I just hope I survive. Am I being melodramatic? Why cant I just win the lotto and kiss my working ass goodbye? I guess I should probably buy a ticket first, that might help. However, the odds are so high, the chances of winning are comical. I wish I could work 2 days a week and be off for 5. With the new renovations to my house growing closer, I wonder how I'm going to get everything done. I guess time will tell. I'm sure the stress level will continue to rise and fall (depending on the day) as I get up to do my motherly duties. My son's senior year is coming up. I hope his grades wont be another thing for me to stress out on as the coming year grows near. Oh well, I am a strong woman with big shoulders for all the things I have to bare. In the meantime, I will continue to breathe and take life one day at a time. Can you relate?

If you cannot laugh, FORCE yourself to laugh for one minute in the morning, one minute in the afternoon and one minute in the night.

Wish you a bright and beautiful day!

I can relate!

My son left for ten days to see his dad this morning. I always get sad about that, then it causes me to stress. I know he'll have fun, but it still hurts to see him go.
