Fun times

One job that is on the rocks and could disappear at any moment because you are not really needed.

One bright idea to go to grad school as a full time student.

One mother, diagnosed with lung cancer.

One sister who keeps trying to come visit with her 5 kids with the desire to stay in your tiny house for an undisclosed amount of time, and also has 11 year old niece call you for money.

One upcoming job interview for an absolute dream job that is highly competitive and the realistic chances are slim

I don't have enough brain capacity for this shit. Click here to enlarge so maybe venting it here will help.

An amazing charity

Unless grad school is absolutely essential to the job you want, I would put that on hold right now. Too much is too much. Click here to enlarge

Pick your battles, and while goals are important, if you feel overwhelmed in making the decision, then pursuing the goal may be as well.

It's hard being a grown up Click here to enlarge. My word of advice, don't let those people come and live with you Click here to enlarge

It's not a feeling, it's a knowing.

Her's are average. I wouldn't take a second look passing her on the street.

Nobody is actually going to stay here. DH totally has my back on that too Click here to enlarge

Grad school is not really an option. Assuming I don't get the job I am interviewing for, I absolutely need it. If I do get the job, it still isn't going to hurt. I was feeling really overwhelmed yesterday. And most of today. But I need to quit looking at the big pic and actually just get through the next few for now.

Oh honey, sometimes that's all it takes. Just a good, old fashioned cry. I blew my stack last night too over everything going on over here, then fell asleep at 7pm and overslept til 6am. It was totally a toddler having an tantrum and then passing out in their clothes for the night. Click here to enlarge

Sometimes we need a toddler tantrum! Click here to enlarge I'm sorry it's so much right now.

I am shocked I haven't lost my shit yet, especially last night. With all the shit going on at work, plus the semester wrapping up and not seeing my husband ever because he had to fire someone then pick up their slack...both of our stupid dogs got sprayed by a skunk last night right outside the open living room windows. At 11pm. THEN, the boys toilet was clogged again and the plunger was doing nothing so we had to snake it. Up to our assess in skunk and shit smell. Click here to enlarge

We need a mojitoClick here to enlarge

And Julie said "Futz", "Futz" said Julie.
"Futz around until my return."
The definition of "futz" was something we had yet to learn,
But we tried to do it anyway, anyway,
'Cause Julie, we'll do anything you say.

Its not operable. Its too close to her heart. So chemo and radiation are her only options. On a T3 tumor. On the plus side I did not find this out via FB. On the flip side, I was blind sided at work. My sister tried to call at about the same time my mom was texting me. I ended up asking to go home. Remember halfway home (because it was a beautiful day for a walk so of course it wasn't as easy as that) I remembered that I was in the middle of mopping the break room and all the tables and chairs were left pushed to one side. I'm glad my boss is awesome and understanding.

I'm not ready to lose my mom. I'm just not.

Neutral. My mom was over for Mothers Day which was nice. My step-dad is taking it especially hard. I am mostly just trying to concentrate on one day at a time. She has a brain MRI on Weds and a meeting with the team of oncologists on Thursday so we will know more then. I am trying not to think too much about it.

We shipped out the last of the molds today at work which was sad for me. I spent 90% of my day either processing orders, working on shipping paperwork, invoicing or doing inventory and now it is just gone. I have some projects to work on to keep me useful for now. New filing systems, some payables stuff, getting a website put together and some safety projects so for at least a month I can say I am still useful. We will see what happens after that. Again, trying not to stress for now.

The interview seemed to go well. I was less nervous than I imagined. I think I gave good answers to their questions, and I asked some of my own. I still need to send a thank you email so I am glad I am writing this out Click here to enlarge It will be a few weeks before I find out one way or another on the job. Not getting my hopes up but it definitely would be nice. Kill some poultry for me or something Click here to enlarge

School is difficult but I managed to get most of my first paper done. It helps that it ties directly into work so I have a legit excuse to work on school at work Click here to enlarge

I was just cruising through here and happened upon this thread.

Coral, I'm so sorry. And experience tells me how crappy an insincere that sounds sometimes, but I don't know what else to say. But I WILL say this. If you need a hat, I'm your girl?? Click here to enlarge

I don't know, I suck at this, Click here to enlarge I really do hate this, and hey! If you need a hat, I really will hook you up!

Hang in there. Click here to enlarge
