|I just want to go hide under the bed

So, last night I managed to top the foot-in-mouth incident by trying to duck by two of our new interns on the way to the elevator and running smack, emphasis on "smack", into a column. Thank goodness my briefcase was slightly ahead of me and I was able to turn my head in time to not break my nose. Hurt cheekbone, dignity in shreds. |
Percy had diarrhea in the bedroom. The less said about that, the better.
We got HAIL on the faire site. Can rain of frogs be far behind?
I am assupagainstdeadlines at work and obviously coming in on the weekend isn't really an option for me this weekend. And staying late/coming in early won't help as most of it all hinges on me finding the right people to sign/move the projects along. I won't even go into how I keep getting different versions of how to do the next step from each person I ask and no matter which one I choose, it's been the wrong one because the procedure has CHANGED since last week...
Oh, yeah, and last night they upgraded our software so now I'm, under tight deadline, trying to do spreadsheets, etc., with new toolbars, etc. I'm sure in the end I will find it easier, but change was one thing I can NOT deal with. I almost burst out into tears because I couldn't find "Save As". It's just one freaking delay after another.
I drove home to walk dogs for lunch to avoid another Big D incident (couldn't afford the time away from work, but couldn't stomach the alternative) and on the way back stopped at a gas station to grab a soda. Came out and some truck was parked behind me, completely blocking me in. Ten minutes later, he came strolling out of the men's room and gave me bloody attitude for being impatient. Only knowing that it would take even more time away from work to wash off the blood kept me from doing what needed to be done when he told me to "Chill, lady."
Then to make it worse, I got forced off the freaking highway onto the shoulder by someone to busy talking on their cell phone to notice that there was already a person in the lane they wanted to get into.
And why am I here, venting, if I'm so freaking behind at work? We are experiencing intermittent outages of, yes, the very database crucial to my project.....
This week I am missing making meatloaf and worrying that I burnt the pine nuts again.
