How can your weeks go from bad to worse to more worse?
I’ve lost one of my TGS books – the one I keep in my purse for goodness sake! I had to rewrite my cards last week because they were such a mess and just realized that my movie trailer isn’t anywhere – but I guess that’s ok because I completely redid my DMP last week and I’m still waiting to hear back on revisions. I tried downloading tweetdeck and it wrecked my poor, old PC and when we got it restored, a program I need is missing. I don’t understand the shapes and colors thing. I’m out of printer ink, so my green triangle is half pink. I went to my photoshop program to make my own pdf to take to a print shop, and “colorfill” only will fill with grey, no matter what color you choose. I thankfully had the layered file from the illustration of the shapes I’d uploaded here, so at least I was able to make a page to take to the print shop to make 25 copies. Had to go to another place for the poster board, and now it’s Friday and I have no flippin’ idea what to put on this board. I did get some compasses printed out and stuck one on my watch – but don’t remember why or what the point of that is. Now it’s Friday afternoon, the hard deadline for the blog entry is here, so here I am. I’ve done exactly one sit so far this week, and out of 13 reading thus far, I’ve probably done six or eight. One of my index cards is missing – I can’t remember what’s supposed to be on it. Unless something really monumental happens, I don’t think I’ll be able to get my chore done before Sunday – but I’m still hoping. I asked questions and made comments in the alliance areas, then can’t find the place and slog through page after page. I did see where someone said just to click on your blue name and all your comments, etc. will show up – so I did that and all I got was my own profile. I didn’t sleep much this week, a relative’s health is declining rapidly, another relative moved, my husband has been put on schedule to work 7-days this week, meaning 13 in a row before a day off, and
goes to a megalomaniacal person at my job who is causing all kinds of kerfuffles. AND while I’m writing this, I feel all kind of red pencil going on because I’m thinking this is supposed to be positive. OK – here’s positive: I did the silent “I love you” thing when I remembered to do it, and it was cool. “The Gal in The Glass” is taped up. The poster and shapes are in the house. Scroll #2 was so great the first time I read it last Saturday morning, that I sat there and read it again. I did find one visual for my poster :
Hope y’all had a better week ( a little southern lingo, there). I’m hanging in and not going away.
Nancy, I love your honesty! I feel your frustration as I have felt some of the same this week and it’s been difficult. I too have a very sick relative (my daughter) and that is a distraction beyond imagination. She had surgery Friday and I drove 350 miles to be with her. The shock of seeing her looking like a refugee from a concentration camp was overwhelming to me and caused much guilt on my part for not realizing how severe her disease had gotten. So I get where you are coming from. The good news is – we’re hanging tough, and we will get to where we need to be! Believe!
Nancy, I’ve had a few frustrating moments too. My worst is that the time needed to do this right is being taken away from my business – and we’re in the 4th quarter depending on the holiday season (which I haven’t prepared for yet) to put food on our table and pay our mortgage. Which is more important? MKMMA. Because doing it THE BEST YOU CAN will bring many rewards. One thing at a time girl… and breathe!
