and it's only 8:00am

How did I know today was gonna be a bad day? I just had that instinct. Maybe it started when I couldn't find anything I wanted to wear. Getting dressed is frustrating these days. One reason is because my clothes are too big so most things look pretty sloppy on me. I only have 3 or 4 things that fit right, but I'm just not ready to go spend money on clothes yet. I want to shed a few more lbs before I do that. The second reason getting dressed is frustrating these days is because I never know what I'm going to be doing. Am I going to be sitting in the office? If so, I just wear slacks and a top... usually with flipflops :) But if I"m gonna be making sales calls then I wear a suit or a dress (and no flipflops.) I'm so ready for this dual job thing to be over.

The second indication that my day may not go perfectly was that I couldn't find my little Tupperware container that I put salad it. It's the perfect size - and I couldn't find it. I had to make do with another one, but still...... annoying!

And the third (and hopefully final) thing happened when I walked into my office. Let me give a little background into this. We have a girl that works here, we will call her Supply Girl, and as the name denotes she handles all the supplies for our customers. They call in and order, she ships it out. There is actually more to it than that, but that's the easiest explanation. In the past when she has gone out of town I have been the one to fill in for her, but that was when I only had 1 job. Now I have 2 and my life is already stressful. Supply Girl tells me on Monday that she is leaving town Thursday and will not be back until the following Tuesday. She begins telling me things as if I'm filling in for her. I ask her if she is sure I'm the one doing it since I already have 2 jobs, and she says she will check into it. I never hear another word from her so I assume that I'm not doing it for her. Oh, but I was wrong! I walk into my office today and there is a little stack of stuff sitting on my desk w/ a note from one of the girls back in the service department. Notes about billing this customer for this item and shipping it here.... all work that Supply Girl normally handles. Well this ignites a little fire in me and I start to get annoyed. I politely ask Service Dept. girl why that was on my desk and she responds "I was told you were handling that while Supply Girl is out of town, that's what K said." (K being my former manager) So I go to K and said "so I'm doing Supply Girl's work while she's gone? I appreciate someone telling me, and ignoring the fact that I'm already doing 2 jobs!!" K says "well that's what H - my current manager - told me to do" So it's basically this big circle of no one owning up to the decision. Now let me say this - If they want me to do it, fine. I will. But why couldn't someone have mentioned this earlier in the week? I've had my calender planned, and this screws it up. UGH I'm super annoyed.

And on top of all that, I really need a haircut but I don't know when I'm gonna have time to get one. Shoot me now
