I didn't have the best day today. My boss was out as were several other officers and what I thought could be a day filled with accomplishments and checking things off my list had others rejoicing ....... "yippee, casual Friday"
and them --
This is something like what I see. Today it took me 45 minutes to drive the 12 miles home. I usually laugh at the other frantic drivers who slam their fists on their steering wheels while I let a tractor and trailer merge in. But today I found myself yelling at the other cars tonight......"do the zipper people!" My lane/your lane/my lane/your lane. I want to know why the guy riding up the right shoulder and cutting in at the last minute before the jersey barriers feels his time and where he is going is more important than mine? Just feeling out of control today I guess. Feeling a bit overwhelmed with some big projects coming my way at work and then I got Volun-Told I would be one of three spearheading the Heart Ball Dinner Auction. No pressure, just need to bring in big bucks for the American Heart Association in pledges and a lot of leg work.
The traffic usually doesn't bother me so I guess it was all the other things on my list that seem to be stacking up quickly. I pity the frantic ones in the morning trying to squeeze here and there as they dart from lane to lane. Stay the course people and maybe, just maybe you wouldn't be so crazed in the mornings if you'd leave earlier so you are not rushing to get there on time! What a concept.
On an up note, our salary increases came through this week! Yeah! And even more important than money, I did manage to put in some super needle and thread time this week. I already accomplished more in the first 9 days of November than I hope for the whole month on my Blue Ribbon Design piece I am working on.......hopefully more progress to share on this one at the end of the month!
Have a stress-free evening all. I, for one, am washing the day's grime from my face, getting all snuggly in my pj's with a cup of tea (or glass of wine) and plan to curl up on the couch to stitch and watch a movie. Tomorrow's another day.
