Some days just suck... until they get better, that is.


13 reasons why I don't have a clever and creative new TT list.

1. I had a sucky day at work today. Nothing really bad happened, it's just my direct supervisor tends to "motivate" by demotivating people. He criticizes on issues that the employee doesn't really have full control over. He talks about how much of a piss poor job you're doing and how the company may not last a month, and then adds "I'm not making threats. This is just the way it is."

2. I feel completely unappreciated as an employee. I was the only administrative employee that remained from one company that merged with another... the other had no employees... just the owner and a couple of independents. I have worked three full-time roles during the merging trying to keep the organization stable.

3. I had this clever idea for a list of 13 ways music impacts my life... but then I drank a bottle of Fat Bastard's merlot. Now I can't seem to recall what was so clever about that list.

4. It was more entertaining to watch my daughter show me what she learned in gym class today... apparently they've now added square dancing to the curriculum. I have no memory of square dancing EVER being on ANY PE class I attended.

5. My husband had a crappy day at work today and after a few captain and cokes.... well, let me just say he's being VERY attentive... and quite entertaining.

6. Did I mention I polished off a bottle of wine?

7. I had a thoroughly enjoyable phone conversation with my mother. No one drives me as batty, but I love her in a way that I just can't honor with written words.

8. She let me know that my only remaining grandparent failed her competence test to live on her own. The family has an important decision to make regarding her care. It really puts a damper on my thoughts.

9. The Pea Pie really wanted to wash the dishes and I just had to let her do it. Naturally, it required my supervision. Never leave a 6 year old ADD child alone with a full sink of warm soapy water and breakables. Trust me.

10. After 10 hours in front of the computer, sometimes you just HAVE to step away.

11. My husband and I are thoroughly enjoying a rousing game of Gears of War... on the insane level... co-op is the ONLY way to go...

12. Once the kids are asleep we'll hit the ranked matches online to really release today's tension by blowing up other people.

13. Well, that about wraps it up! :)

Cheers, until next time.

That turned out to be a very interesting list! Is Fat Bastard merlot any good?? A friend bought us the chardonnay, and I didn't like it.

My middle monster (who turned 5 today) loves to wash dishes. However, she uses up a whole bottle of soap on one dish. :-) Happy TT!

I think it was a great list. And believe it or not, in 7th or maybe it was 8th grade, my PE class did square dancing too. And that was......I don't even want to remember how many years ago lol.

My TT is up also.

Don't you hate it how a bad boss can suck the life out of you? They never seem to realize the impact they have on your daily live (at work) and how it can overflow into the rest of your day.

Well, I've got a nasty headache today! :) But it's Thursday and that means it's almost Friday. So that often lifts my spirits.

Unfortunately, I don't get a 3 day weekend. But my hubby and kids do.... those lucky dogs. :)

Sorry to hear that you're having a kind of crappy day! I had one of those yesterday because I got a migraine with four hours of school left to go :( I hope that things get better for you!!

Love me some Fat Bastard. I always have a bottle on the table for dinner parties -- it's a real conversation starter!

I remember the days work sucked it all out. Sometimes there is nothing like a nice drink and a little attention to make the day better.

Great list. I knew I had seen someone else who did the TT. I just did a TT on my blog for the first time. I liked it, made me think hard of some things I was thankful for instead of always complaining. Hope your boss chokes...well nevermind...hope work gets better because there's nothing worse than a crummy boss.

I've got a dish-washing four-year-old here ... and brand-new wooden cabinets. Not necessarily a good mix.

Redo that list about music, will ya? I want to see it!

Happy TT, my friend.

Turned out to be a great list anyway. I've decided that there are few things that a bottle of wine won't fix! Happy Thursday!

Fat Bastard - excellent choice. Sorry about the bad day at work. I can relate about the bosses who "motivate" in negative fashions with the opposite effect.

I'm so sorry you've had a tough day. We once had square dancing lessons in music class in elementary school. Very strange.

I can relate; I've had some crappy days at work in my time. I hope it works out for you soon.

sorry you've had a crappy day - if it makes you feel any better, I had one too. I hope things get better for you soon.

Happy TT
