Serenity Now!

by statia on September 22, 2003

I swear to god, I think I have an octopus that has shoes just dangling over my head, dropping each shoe, one by one. Because just when I think the other shoe has dropped, another does.

I get out of a meeting to find out that the company that supplies our data, has once again screwed up. I hate them with the buring fiery passion. Especially now. More so because this data is what determines our budgets, and ulitmately, our bonuses. When they screw up, the finance person that takes care of this on our end gets screwed, and then in turn, we get screwed. So what does this mean for me, and the rest of the crew? No bonuses this month, they’re delayed. When you ask? Most likely until November. Which would be all fine and dandy. You know, if I wasn’t moving, didn’t have a billion weddings/showers etc going on. Yeah, did I mention I was moving? There goes that money.

I normally am a saver. I do pretty well at saving. However, this last year with being laid off for a period of time, and then getting divorced has been extremely tough on me. I was just getting back on my feet. School? I can kiss that shit goodbye. Hasta la vista. I might as well not even think about it. I have no idea what I’m going to do. There’s no way I’ll make it through october, and last until November.

Here is a picture I took yesterday morning with my camera phone before our departure on yesterday’s ride. As calming as it looks, the overall mood of the picture pretty much reflects what I look like right now. And it’s bleak.

it’s always darkest before the dawn.

every cloud has a silver lining.

when one door closes another opens.

that’s all of the BS cliches that i can think of. you’ve lasted this long you just have to keep believing that you will continue to make it.

I know nothing I say can make it better. So I’m just offering up some hugs, some Grey Goose, and a shoulder or two.
