Why This Day is NOT a Winner (subtitle: My "NOT REAL" Post For Today)

So yeah.  Today stinks.  Last week I had quite the emotional roller coaster going on with some family "stuff" and I dedicated the weekend to rest and family to get me back on track.  This morning.  I felt fantastic.  I slept and rested and got just the right amount of dosage on the family front and went in to this new day with a positive attitude.

Well, then I got an email from our COO.  Our company is merging with another and everything is going down this week and next because why wouldn't you merge the week before and the week of Thankgiving right? Makes perfect sense.   Good news for the company, but timing is questionable. The email consisted of a lot of normal corporate stuff about the merger, but included the announcement of some supervisors.  Two from the new company and one from our existing company.  OMG.  I wanted to vomit.  I keep to myself.  I run a satellite office for our company and have for 4 years.  I like my gig.   I have a staff of 4, including myself and we are perfectly happy that way.  This announcement does not necessarily affect us or our office, but it does affect the company I work  You know those people that fake their way through life, lie, steal and cheat and yet no one seems to really notice but you.  Yeah, those people.  The ones that one up every one on every thing.  Those people that drive and wear flashy things to prove something (even though they continue to battle financial and expect pity because of it)? Those people that are always sooooo busy, yet can take one week's vacation unpaid to Cabo.  You no likey either?  Well good.  I try to not "go here" because let's be honest it is just not that exciting, but this particular person has been a thorn in my effing side since I met her 8 years ago.  She's bad news.  The only thing I can figure (here comes the major professionalism, ready, set, go) is that she is sleeping with someone or has something on someone because let's be honest what she has done would be grounds for most company's to fire someone of this "nature."  I know more, but I can't type those things.  I just can't bring my fingers to do it.

I let her get to me way more than I should.  But seriously and honestly I'm not sure how much more I can take.  And my company, god love them, but you continue to deal with this madness?

There are bad eggs.  I know that.  I just don't want to have to deal with them on a weekly basis.  That's it.  That's all I'm asking for.

And you know what else?  The traffic by my work currently sucks.big time!!  It took me 30 minutes just to get off of our road (my building is situatuated on a looped street that is currently one way).  All I wanted to do was take a breath and drive real quick to Jimmy John's and get a veggie sandwich and a big Diet Coke, which usually takes all of 10 minutes because they are so freaky fast.

And you know what else? (I'm almost done. Promise).  I got a text that Mia is a running a fever.  It's one of those moments that I hate that I can't be with her when she doesn't feel well.  She's in GREAT hands, but I'm her Momma. Sadz.

For the love.  Can a girl get a redo on this day?

How much longer til I can have a glass of vino?

Thanks for listening.  I do feel better.  Writing, whether anyone cares to read it, always makes me feel better.  So I am thankful for that.

I hope you all are having a GLORIOUS day!
