Welcome to Really Random Thursday! I really appreciate that Cindy of live a colorful life lets us all tag along on this ride!
In case you didn't see it in the title....WARNING....I'm in a REALLY bad mood. Have been for three days now. I have some things going on at work right now that are making me absolutely CRAZY. Extremely stressful. And school hasn't even started yet. (Actually, it will be a blessing for school to start....my contact and interactions with the students is the best and most enjoyable part of my job....so my job will be more pleasant when school starts!)
One of my colleagues, who's involved in the stress with me (she's on the good side of it, with me!) told me she picked up this bottle of wine for us to share, because we've been dealing with all this crap together. She is so funny. She is the one who gave me those wine bottles for my birthday. I don't know where she finds all this stuff! Yes, this is how I'm feeling lately. I have many more negative thoughts I could say about it, but I will spare you all!
Have you ever worked in a really negative work environment? I am so fortuante that where I work now, that is NOT the case. Overall, it's a really positive place to be. But I have worked at really negative places in the past. I've had some administrators over me who were just awful....bullies, to be exact. I saw this t-shirt at the mall one day. It just spoke to me about those bullies I've worked with in the past. This is so true. They're gonna hate, whether you like it or not. So, I try to tell myself to get over it and see if I can be part of the solution. I also sometimes try to get myself in a position where I can make it impossible for them to make everyone else's life miserable. But that's not always easy....
Don't mean to be a downer today. But, hey, sometimes you just gotta keep it real, right? This is my life. It's not all beautiful fabric and fibers. Sometimes it's pincushions and burnt fingers!
We have been having just spectacular weather here in Michigan. Last week, Sweet Pea wanted to set up the tent in the back yard and camp...she wanted to sleep outside. Papa Pea is a good sport. He set up the tent and camp chairs. We sat out at night, drinking wine and watching Sweet Pea catch fireflies. Then, we crawled into the tent to sleep. My kind of camping. Hot shower in the morning, and bathroom close by. Didn't stop Sweet Pea from peeing in the yard in the morning, however. But she peed all over her leg and jammies. Haha! I told her, I better start teaching her how to pee outside, if she's going to "camp!" Instead, she decided to pee inside. That's okay, too, right?
One night wasn't enough. We camped for a week. It was great. But I was glad to see my bed again!
I'll end on a positive note. There is an intersection about 3 miles from my house. That intersection marks the spot where a little township called Texas Corners begins. Everyone knows this interesection by the name "Texas Corners." I noticed the other day this little hair salon opened up at that corner. Do you see the name? Best Little Hair House in Texas Corners. It pretty much cracked me up.
How come hair salons always come up with some funny names? I bet you've seen some good ones, too. Please feel free to share them. They always crack me up. And I could use a little giggle right now.
Please come back tomorrow. I'll try to get myself in a better mood. I'll share stuff about the AQS show with you! I decided I'm gonna go take Sweet Pea to a movie and see if I can get out of this funk.
Until next time,
