Cheese & Chocolate without Vodka and Coke

This week has been a rough one… We had selective electricity which really wasn’t matching with my schedule and PowerTel was inconsistent at best in the few seconds that I actually had time and electricity concurrently. I know that doesn’t sound like the end of the world but to me, I need those things to relax and get rid of the frustration of the day… Instead I had to settle for Wimbledon. Don’t get me wrong, I like watching sports but taking bets on which player will hit the net first or having ‘who has the most annoying grunt’ discussions is no match for the awesomeness that is Twitter.

But I degress, the reason I needed a stress reliever this week was just an annoying series of events. Stuff at work resulted in me having to fit 3days amount of work into 1; waisting 2days work because I had to redo it through no fault of my own in the pressure cooker deadline of 4hours; other people were messing with my staff and completely through my scheduling into chaos and resulted in me fighting fires the last 2 days. I also had to cover up other people’s mistakes and once again squish several days of work into only a few hours and hope like crazy that I didn’t miss any tiny details… Plus this week everyone else seem to have lost their basic ability to use office equipment leaving me to run around acting as secretary for the masses. Oh and the most important priority in our company has all of a sudden become business cards that I must just magically design and get trademark approved… Oh yeah and I have to do all of this while keeping up energy for the current promotion; organize future promotions and plan the ones coming up in the next 2 weeks. All of this in a 7hour day? I don’t think so…

If this was all I had to deal with, maybe I would have been ok but I’m drinking orange juice (which is code for I have a cold) and have to turn 40 high school kids into performers in less than 2weeks and well… there are also a few family issues I had to attend to this week. The good news is that I seem to be in a phase of my life where I have given up drinking and I rediscovered my love for cheese and chocolate. That may sound really random to you but to me those are 3 huge things that affect everything from my energy level and sensibility through to my eating habits and mood levels.

But today I got to watch sport on TV, an old movie I use to love, play with the dog, rescue a kitten, finish some of my work, write a post to my little baby cousin and eat a snack I haven’t made since I was like 12… So today, the entire week has been worth it or rather doesn’t matter. Moments like these where I get to enjoy a breather and that feeling of triumph before being weighed down by the world again, are really comforting and a real sign that it will always get better.

Love you all ❤
