They just hatin' on ya cuz your dope.

It has been one loo-ooong week, my friends. You see, last friday I wrote a letter to my boss's boss to tell her about the panic attacks and the crying and the general feeling dread I get as I walk up the stairs to work each day. I then promptly rushed out the door, tears in my eyes, wondering what she was going to do with such an email.

On Monday, we had a meeting to discuss the panic attacks, the crying, and the general feeling of dread I get as I walk up the stairs to work each day. There was crying then too. Crying because something was about to change. Something HAD to change. She was understanding. She was amazing.

However, on Tuesday, she had a discussion with my boss to tell him about the discussion I had with my boss's boss (you following?). So, much like monday morning where I had no idea what kind of day I was in for because dear jesus - who knows how people will react to these things...So Tuesday passed in a stressed out haze. I also had another meeting with my boss's boss so she could tell me about her meeting with my boss (there was more crying...and as an aside. When I cry in front of Inspector Climate (you know on the daily) it's mostly just tears with a wee bit of the sniffles. When I was crying at work it was hiccupping sobs and snot bubbles and was horrifying and embarrassing and NOT something that needs to be repeated.). Of course then my boss had to set up a meeting with me for Wednesday to discuss his meeting with his boss.

Not a lot of work was done with all these meetings and all the crying.

My meeting with my boss included more hiccuping, snot heavy crying which also led to me having trouble breathing (and yet my boss still had the nerve to say that me being upset "personally upset him") ANYDOODLE - my point is (I know, you didn't think I had one did you) it has been a LONG and STRESSFUL weekend. Being a grown up is hard, yo. And I'd like to veto it.

So, tonight, I am going to do what all mature adults do. Sit at home with Inspector Climate watching the cinematic masterpiece that is Step Up 2 The Streets while eating a pint of Ben and Jerry's ice cream....

How will you be destressing this weekend?


  1. :(
    I'm sorry that you had to go through this love. *hugs*

  2. I hate this post! I wish there was something I could do, other than give you an internet hug.

  3. Boo. That sucks. Hang in there.

  4. Aw, this is awful (I hate crying in front of people too). I hope that bringing it out in the open acts as a ciruit breaker and things start to get better.

    This is a sad weekend for me because it's my first father's day without a father. I'm not sure how I'm going to cope....

  5. Ugh - what an awful week. I'm sorry. And I think maybe I should do the ben and jerry's thing tonight. I've had a crappy last 48 hours myself!

  6. I support ice cream and bad movie nights!!! What flavor did you get?!?

  7. Cammy - Thank you! The situation can only get better...

    Kyle - I hate this post toooo! internet hugs are ALWAYS appreciated.

    Tina - Thanks Tina!

    Frisky Librarian - seriously, crying in front of people is not fun. This is a sad weekend, I hope you celebrated the day in style in memory of your dad.

    Twenty Four at Heart - it sounds like you've been in so-oh much pain. Ben and Jerry's always helps!

    Becky - there are only 3 gluten free flavours offered in Australia. and they were out of Phish Food (which was my first choice..) so I had to make due with Triple Caramel Swirl.
