Post Meltdown

Well after being a stressed out wreck, I suppose I just lost it.  I'm still annoyed, but I'm going to be alright and trust me, I'm not going to do anything stupid. Today, I confirmed, ie: combing through HR policies that I will get a severance package.  If I lose my job, Tommy is going to take over my part of the bills, include Miss Kitt's board. Who'd thunk it.  I decided not to lay down and play dead, so today I emailed every single soul I thought could help me get another job and the response I got back was extremely reassuring.  Then I took another long look at some of the tough negotiations I'm right in the middle of and decided, if they sack me, those negotiations will simply cease to be my problem.

We're going to Arizona at the beginning of June and when we get to Sedona, I intend to park my patoot right next to a vortex and forget that, what should I call my place of employment, "the nut house" ever existed. Then when I'm well rested I'll come back, collect unemployment and start looking for another job.

Now if they can my assistant and my manager and think I can do it all, well now that I'm in my new frame of mind, I'll just proceed with the find another job plan.

Thanks guys for all your concern and encouragement. You are the best.

Now if I could just figure out what happened to my snazzy new blog background.  Sigh, it's always something.


  1. Golly Girl! I haven't been reading the posts, and I guess I'd better start keeping up better! YOu sound like you are having a hell of a time!
    Thank you DOUBLE for the encouragement that you are giving my sorry butt!
    I'm actually ok with not working at this point- and except for the horse costs, I'd stay unemployed forever. BUT am like you and need the income for those four legged beasties that love you no matter what.
    I've got some new ideas to kick around my brain, and I'll bet you do too.
    Have a martini and relax- things are happening for a reason, even if we don't know yet what the reason may be.
    My reason, it turns out, is to help my girlfriend in her hour of need!

  2. Thank you for your encouragment. Yes it's been godawful. But I'm going to be ok. I'm over caring and trying to do my best. They're going to do what they're going to do and then I'll figure out what I'm going to do. And maybe that's staying home and working with my horse for a while.

    Just remember we're not tacky old bats, we're babes in the prime of our lives.

    Oh yes, it's pink cowgirl boots yeah hah.
