    Default My attitude - My apology (QuilterMom)

    Okay...

    pardon my language... but this fits for now (waits for lightning from moderators)...

    i've had a helluva day... no, it's not an excuse... but it's been a p*ss poor day!

    get up with 10min til i gotta leave (cuz alarm was turned off & no one woke me), so I rush to put myself together (as usual), get the kid up (cuz he's gonna be a little late) & just set out food to eat (dont even know what i put out!), as i'm ready to head out the door... lovely nausea (as it's been now for months) visits me & i'm running to the bath to visit my dear porcelain friend.

    I'm at work and can barely stay awake... tho I had what I figured was enough sleep.
    And come to find out I'm being threatened to be fired because I messed up... FIRST time in FOUR yrs! *gasp*

    I've been mailing resumes now for 5 mos. w/nothing to turn of it. I cant have full time - tho no one wants to only hire me part time (should sound like a blessing... but i cant since i'm the only one who takes care of the house & can be home when the kid gets here after school).
    The few part time jobs that are offered apparently arent interested in me.

    *whatever*

    So i leave early as usual... because I'm visiting other ppl's porcelain friends (dont much like visiting business porcelains... a little creepy!).

    I get home, visit w/my porcelain - and find the kitchen has been robbed... or so it looks. Dishes EVERYwhere, crumbs on the floor, counter, table, sticky stuff on the table & in the sink... the bedroom was also struck by a windstorm... sheets ACROSS the room... (wonder if BF did a toga self-entertaining ritual while getting ready for work?!)

    AND I've gotta project & 6 problems of hw I CANT GET WORKING.

    So the apology part of this post... besides to everyone who's actually reading it!!!...

    is to QuilterMom.

    In another post we apparently disconnected in a harsh way.
    More than likely, it's my fault. I come across as extremly abrasive.
    (probly why I have no job, friends & am disconnecting from my family (ie, parents/siblings - not bf/son)).
    Always been that way... always try to avoid it... but it seeps out anyway... part of my character.

    So I apologize to you QuilterMom for coming off in such a harsh way.

    that's it for now...

    gotta nosebleed....

    No lightening from this Moderator, we all get a little excited about some subjects.
    Hope your health & work probs turn around for you real soon. In the meantime be good to yourself, OK?

    Sue -
    Have you ever heard of the book 'Simple Abundance' by Sarah Ban Breathnach? She suggests keeping a 'gratitude journal' - every day write down at least three things you are grateful for - some days it may be just waking up in the morning...
    Doing this (and reading the rest of her book) has changed my life.We all have things to be grateful for - you have a job, you seem to be working on goals, you have people (bf and his son) to come home to ...
    My husband is an alcoholic ( he's still a great guy ) and I lived for years thinking "poor me" and concentrating on his issues. Once I started keeping this journal and realising all I had going right in my life things changed (even my husband changed)...
    It may sound like a simple thing, but for me it was very powerful. Maybe it could work for you. The entire book is wonderful...

    *edit* - look for the 'daily appreciations' thread

    - I've read some of your posts and it seems like you have alot of positive things to share

    Sue, it takes a great person to make an apology. It sometimes is the hardest thing to do.

    Just a quick thanks to everyone that "listened" & posted here.

    Feeling a bit better.

    Went home from work yesterday & spent the whole day in bed w/a migraine that wouldnt go away (meds didnt work) from 3pm until 7am this morning when i got up to go to work.

    Still gotta bad "left over" headache... took meds, eating extra large breakfast than normal (yogurt w/fresh fruit & granola, a protein bar & 2 small (think of melba toast) size "sandwiches" made w/hummus & water on the side.

    I feel like a pig - but i need the energy today... got work then home to clean & then class for 3.5 hrs tonight *whew*

    Wish me a healthy & less dizzy day!
