Dear Diary,

Today bit me in the ass....hard

A while back, I was promoted to a management position, and the team I'm managing began their first week on Monday. It's a training week and things are crazy. I'm getting up around 5am in order to be at work before 7 so that I can get some work done before training starts at 9.

Chapter #1

I forgot my coffee at home so I had to go buy a starbucks (Non-Fat Chai Tea Lattee 1 pump vanilla) at 8:55, right before I had to begin our first meeting of the day. I got into the elevator and thought maybe the elevator smelled bad before I quickly realized I must have grabbed the wrong drink which was a nasty concoction of coffee and dirt. (I'm a coffee drinker, but S.bux is jet fuel that I cannot handle)

Chapter #2
I all of a sudden have a horrible cold. My body is weak and tired - my head feels like a bowling ball, my throat is scratchy, and I can't breathe out of my nose. Oh, and I'm leading meetings from 9-4 sounding like the lockness monster.

Chapter #3  
I'm trying to eat well and lose some weight, and I have a bowl of candy staring at me from 9-4.

Chapter #4
My iphone is still broken. I took it into the Apple store last week and they told me that had to update the software before they could swap out my phone - which they promised would fix the issues. Well, no surprise here, it didn't and now I have to go back to the dang store and get a new phone.

Chapter #5
I'm feeling very discouraged, unappreciated, and secluded at work. I think this is just because my overall mental state is in the shitter, but I kind of feel like Eeyore.

Reread this and grow some kahunas.


  1. awwww poor you! sounds like a really tough week so far...but a holiday coming up to help hopefully! Keep on drinking tea and try to get some sleep at night and hopefully you can pull through. xo

  2. Sorry you had a yucky day :( hate when that happens. Get lots of rest and have Joel take care of you - I'm 99% sure you will feel better! Haha

    And just think - tomorrow is already Wednesday! One day closer to the weekend!
