School vs wine vs blogging

So far, work this week has really sucked.  Sorry to be such a Debbie Downer from the get-go, but it has.  It's the start of the month, so everyone is paying rent, moving, and in general complaining about anything and everything.  A resident made my co-worker cry on Saturday.  The mothers of a resident couple called and screamed at the same co-worker yesterday ( I know you think this has little to do with me, but I am the direct manager of the unit, so it's totally my issue).  I have a stack of files 2.5 feet high in my in-box right now.  Every call is a problem, every person in the door needs to move right away, and we don't have any apartments for several more weeks.

And despite it all, I have been trying extra hard to keep a cheerful disposition at work.  Coffee and I have been reunited at last.  Shouldn't that be enough to override anything else?  This is what I remind myself as I decide to choose joy over frustration.  Everyone who told me I was crazy for giving up coffee for a month was right.  How can you be sad if you have coffee?

I'm not gonna lie though, after work last night wine became my partner in crime.  About 30 minutes before we closed, my uterus decided it would be appropriate to kill me.  It isn't "that" time.  I fact, I should be ovulating right now, and my uterus should be the happiest little future baby home ever.  Not so much.  So, what cures an achy uterus?

Well, red wine and your blogs.  Yes, this is finals week, and I have a TON of stuff to finish by Friday at midnight.  But really, this was an emergency.  I know that if you are a woman, you understand.  Thank you all for writing blog posts that can take my mind off of the mysterious out of nowhere pain.

Don't worry though, tonight I have every intention of owning the work I still have left to complete.  A should have a study session, which means he won't be around to distract me with his general awesomeness.  Seriously, when you're in the same room with your man, how do you not find things to tell him every 10 seconds?  I need to work on this.

How has your week been so far?  How are you coping with curve balls this week?

    1. Thank you so much Heather! I think it is too much to ask for people to say thank you at this point, I'm just going for "not angry". Thank you for stopping by!

  2. Note to self, wine cures everything! I have to agree. But once your uterous used like hooker on a cheap date to carry a baby and then it spits it out 9 months later, sleep takes over the need for wine. So drink up my friend!

  3. Girl, I work at a university and graduation is tomorrow. You wouldn't believe how many parents have called and how many students have waited until today to find out if they're graduating. Ugh. Sometimes I spend like an hour at work just looking at youtube videos of cute cats and dogs. It's necessary to remind myself that not everyone is annoying -- at least animals aren't, haha :)

    2. I suggest Maru! Seeing him jump in and out of a big cardboard box is basically the cure-all to 90% of my stress. It's the simple things, haha.
