Without a doubt... the absolute worst day of this contract (so far) ... was today.
People getting fired... clients being insane... competing contracting organizations pissing me off...
And through it all... I have to keep a team pumped up and confident.
Just... a bad f&^cking day man. :(
At least mother nature threw a little sunshine my way... on an otherwise cloud covered and windy day.
And... because I'm reaching here (so humour me)... when the five o'clock chime rang... I got to log off and set about refocusing on family... dinner and what might entertain me tonight. :)
~ yeah... so a day of client meetings. and lots of growling.
~ although... I did manage to skip shaving this morning (always a plus) and I got to visit the ladies in the homebuilding companies office ... I love those girls. They were the ones we worked with, almost daily, to get our dream home built... so they could be vile shrews... and I'd still associate them with the one of the best experiences of my life and they get to be "wonderful" simply by association. (however, they're both very nice and kind to start with ... so... :D)
~ to stay the course on our "Ok kids... George Lopez!!!" which is the what we do right before shuffling them off to bed. :)
~ that bramey gets to drop the ball and pick herself up a laser!!!
~ for the beautiful sirenity to find her way back to normal... er... she's got a fever. :)
~ and that pasticcio enjoys her... HER office. :)
A very happy birthday to a very happy woman... HB sugar-sparkles... (sparklegrrl). May you be on the receiving end... er... yeah... that. Oh, and I hope the year ahead keeps you great health and wrapped up in the love of your family. :)
It's stunning to observe the degree to which I actually have established deeply set mental blocks that result in random thumb picking.
I'm in the wear bandaids on both thumbs constantly so they can get back to normal stage... and like five minutes into a "breathing break" without the little bandaids on and I catch myself picking away... but I stopped before I screwed up three days of bandaids. Fortunately.
I'm sure you're like "ewww... wtf are you on about?" and that this is in tmi land...
But everybody has their own little nasty habits... and this one is mine.
An all out assault on nice smooth normal skin on the sides of my thumbs.
Normal will win... because I'm in the groove... but the truth is, unless there is some kind of miracle waiting in the wings...
A week or so of normal will be replaced by random gnawing and pick pick picking.
It drives me freaking nuts.
Anyway... I'm just venting.
And maybe trying to force feed my brain some framework information to keep my current pickish defense up to the task.
K... I'll stop now. :D
I need some kind of good vibe to sneak into things.
There's actually a little background "sizzling" noise in my head from the out-of-control-frustration that today was all about.
We have dairy-queen ice cream sammichs in the freezer.
One of those might help.
~ see ya.
