when work gets in the way of life...

Actually nothing really exciting is going on in my life right now for which I am thankful because my work life is sucking the big one and I'd be pissed if it was messing my personal life up. Damn that was a long sentence...


Unfortunately one of our employees has come down with a serious illness. Unfortunately that means I am doing her job and my job and 'tis the season to make the big deals happen... It's hard enough to pretend to do all the work I do on a regular basis without having to pretend to all my work PLUS her work too! And so it sucks to be me, and yes I would like some cheese with my whine...


One thing I hate about this double duty is the working late and I'm tired (well also I'm lazy and this is seriously messing with my sitting on my fat ass and watching mindless tv). Monday night I didn't get home until after 6:30, last night it was 8:30 and tonight 6:15. That blows!

Something else that blows is because of these long hours I have missed an opportunity to meet THE GIRL yet again. You see, C1 is currently in Mexico working some deals to open a few of his gyms in Cancun (now wouldn't THAT suck to have to go visit my son in CANCUN?) and last night my niece called me and asked me if I wanted to meet her and THE GIRL for happy hour. The opportunity to not only meet THE GIRL on my terms, without C1, but to do it with the protection of my niece would have been great! But no, foiled again.

Speaking of nieces, one of my 17,049 nieces became engaged on Valentine's Day! Isn't that sweet? A little too mushy for me, but I am happy for her and extremely excited for her.

And speaking of fat asses, which I believe I mentioned above, I won't give you the ACTUAL number of pounds I gained while cruising the seas, but let's just say it was in the DOUBLE type number range. I can actually see my fat ass following me, so I started a diet Monday. THAT is not going so well, because, well because I am FRIGGIN starving to death. Cutting ones daily calorie intake by some odd 200% tends to make me grouchy on top of whiney... Just warning you.

That my friends is my life, must head off to bed now so I can work another 12 hour day tomorrow. Now where in the hell is that cheese?

I hope you're getting two paychecks for the two jobs you're doing. No? Hmmm. Well shoot.
If you find a way to deal with that hunger thing - let me know. I too can see my ass following me these days. I just can't stop eating!!! And I have no cruise as an excuse. Help me, Kat!!!!
I'm seriously thinking about joining sparkpeople or wtf it is. Have you tried that?
Okay, I feel weird. Here you've gone off to bed and I'm chatting with your blog.

Hang on, sista'! I'm on my way - cheese and wine in hand!!

Playing catch up. Loved the stuff about the cruise! Next year you need to take me as a consultant or something.......Oh and did you ever figure out what the hell that chicken looking thing was?

Oh and I love the new profile pic. How the hell is it that I'm younger than you and somehow I look older than you??? Hmmm?

I'd send you a big old block of cheese, but I have been busy using it with MY whine. However, I might share some.

Dang! You missed out on meeting the Girl!! This work thing has got to stop. It's getting in the way of important things, like you being able to tell us about the Girl!! So I say DELEGATE that extra work to some OTHER lucky person.

Stupid work. ;-)
Yeah, visiting Cancun regulalry would really suck big-time...I mean, that's a ahrd-knock life there. ;-)

Cancun, yea that would suck, especially if you had to take some of your best blogger buddies! I joined the sparkpeople or whatever and I'm not feeling it, my ass is not following me, but i have these stalkers. Every time i turn around there they are - meet hip 1 & hip 2.

Becca said...

Big hugs to you!

Tricia said...

Aww man..you could have met the girl with the comfort of your niece and alcohol. At least with alcohol if you did accidently say something wrong, you could have blamed it on drinking a Weee to much. Bummer! Gym's in Cancun! I hate C1! LOL!

No way you gainined on the cruise! I would never have guessed that! Even with all the rich foods and drinks, all that dancing in my thinking would have melted it all off!

Good luck at work. I am sorry that your having to work so hard like that! Boo Hoo!

Pretty sure I gained in the double digits as well...which I'm not quite sure how it happened, I basically ate grilled fish or shrimp every day. Must have been the drinks. Damn drinks!

Missed Ya!!
