One of Those Days

I'm down in the dumps today, friends.

The week started off well enough. There was talk of me being permanently hired at the temp job I've been working at the last few months, starting June 1. I was beyond thrilled. I stayed late, worked my tail off, and gave them a lead on a potentially multi-million dollar client.

But the last three days the boss has been dodging me. No official job offer has come forward, no explanation.

There's still a gaping hole in my bathroom ceiling. Everything smells musty/mildewy and bugs are coming in to the apartment from the opening. The contractor who was supposed to fix the drywall has been cancelled twice. Our property manager is no longer returning phone calls from either me or Chuk.

I'm frustrated...or maybe I'm just tired and that's what's causing me to lose patience. I don't know. I just want to go home, get in bed, and watch TV. That's not happening though because we're going camping tomorrow and, of course, there's still laundry to be done.

I'm telling you all this 1. because misery loves company and 2. because I'm so over blogs that tell every shiny, happy thing in their life, but never the bad moments. This is my life. I have bad days. This is one of them. Tomorrow will be better, but now I just have to take a deep breath and get through today.

Thanks for letting me get all that off my chest. I feel better...a little.


  1. I hope everything is better today - I really hope you get that job!
    How absolutely irritating about your bathroom and the fraggin' property manager. House problems make me so depressed (I haven't posted more on our renovation because we're just living in it and it's not getting done - I'm threatening to sell our house just to see some of this work get done; not a happy way to live together, I'm sure you can see).

    I wish you well!

  2. Yes ma'am we do all have crappy days and most times I am sorry I do not share mine. Thanks for sharing yours! I hope that bathroom of yours finally gets fixed and I hope that boss gives you the damn job!!

  3. I'm so glad you're honest on your blog. Seriously, it's all about the good and the bad- that's life. This, too, shall pass...


I know word verification is a pain, but I'm getting a lot of spam comments, more than I can keep up with. I hope you'll leave a comment anyway. I really appreciate you reading and love hearing back from you.
