Hump Day Brain Dump

It’s Hump Day! I should be breathing a little easier knowing we are half way through the week, but I am stressing this week. Everything is fine, but I feel like I could easily end up having a fully warranted anxiety attack at any given time. Hoping a little brain dumping might set me straight.

It is just an off week. I actually thought this week might be a little easier, but that was a fleeting thought. I started out the week with a sick kiddo. She had struggled for a week before I finally broke down and took her to the doctor because I knew if I took her last week they would not prescribe anything.  So we let her develop a sinus/upper respiratory infection. Working from home is great in theory, but it throws me off and I am never as productive as I am if I am actually working in the office. Today, the other felt sickly, but she went on to school to avoid extra homework.

Work is slowly killing me. People need to just act like I want. People are just bad this week. I am generally pretty easy to get along with but I do have my lines. To the guy that emailed me saying, “I am not trying to argue, but…” Dude, you were trying to argue with the wrong redhead. Nobody’s got time for that. I have had deals falling apart and new clients pestering the heck out of me. It has just been one thing after another.

I was actually a little ahead going into this week on school stuff, but it has since gone out the window. I have got to work on my group research paper and it is stressing me out. That is, of course, on top of my normal course load. I am thinking that I will have to lock myself away every spare minute I have for the remainder of the week.

Spare minutes. Ha! We are officially winding down the school year which means that it is concert season. Normally, I love concert season but not so much this week. Concerts are scheduled for Thursday and Sunday this week. Not that it matters at the moment, but we still have a dance recital and another concert in May.  I have a mental block against Thursday’s concert and keep thinking that will be my night to do school work.  Because of that, I actually committed to doing stuff Friday and Saturday. Friday is not a huge deal to me, but may be to my older daughter. We will see if I can get out of that mess. Saturday is a pinup event and while I would normally skip, I am unable to attend any of their other events this month and feel a bit of obligation to the group. Anddd, I think I have a date on Sunday-new guy. Not holding my breath, but we will see.

Funny how my brain dumping makes me feel a little better, but I do feel like I have a bit of clarity with regards to what I need to be doing. Once I finish this blog, I will resume working and try to make some magic happen. I can work on my paper tonight and try to wrap that up this evening and after the concert tomorrow night. Friday and Saturday evening, I can knock out my normal school stuff-fingers crossed! Heck, if I really push, I might even get some Spike’s time in Saturday night because Lord knows I could use a drink or ten! Maybe, by Sunday I will be cool, calm and collected and able to enjoy the concert and a drink with the new guy.
