Most of it was good.
However, this past Wednesday, hump day, my blog post title was going to be….Who Let the BI…OTCH Out? Woof, Woof, Woof, Woof.
I would have sliced you down to size, but only because I was pushed to my limits.
Otherwise, I am one of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet! hahaha
We have been without a receptionist at work since December 26, 20017.
So that makes me triple busy, because my job is pretty demanding in the first place.
I can handle my job, but add-on another job and uh, stand back, sooner or later, mama is going to BLOW!
If one of the accountants had not graciously offered, of her own free will, to help me out by sitting up front and helping with the phones, I am pretty sure I would be sitting in jail right about now.
Two other people on staff also offered up their help, one was a CPA and the other was my surrogate bro-in-law, which makes him that much cooler.
I accepted all three co-workers help and now they are on my *Wow, thanks for stepping list*.
Fast forward to Friday, the huge surprise for the staff that I previously spoke about in another post, HELLO BOWLING PARTY!
To my knowledge, for the first time in my company’s 52 year history, they closed the office at 12:30 pm, at the on set of tax season, on a work day, to take all of us bowling. UM. Holy WOW!!
Check it out…
You see those two smiling people?
One would be my boss, and the other would be the new receptionist we just hired on Thursday.
BOTH would be the BEST DAMN BOWLERS in the firm. Dah. Hence the smiles!
I personally sucked. For real.
I was the worst bowler IN THE ENTIRE firm.
Note to self – only pick or suggest activities in which I will excel!!! For real!!!
Next time, we are SO swimming laps or ice skating or doing hot yoga…or something that takes everyone else out of their comfort zone, yet, something in which I can own. hahahaha
For the record, our 3rd set of bowling, in which we only had 3 minutes left to play (of course!), I held my own thank you very much.
I honestly do not recall bowling so poorly in the past.
Um. Granted, I may or may not have been drinking in past bowling experiences.
Yeah, I am so not a party girl (only in my dreams baby!).
But I am a, um, Ok, if that takes the edge off (legally, of course!), I am in!
But still, I certainly would NOT have suggested something I totally suck at as a team building event!!!
My ego is too fragile! hahaha
Fast forward to today, Saturday.
Much to some people’s disappointment and/or surprise in our company (cuz I got a few texts, emails & “alarms”)…I was not at work for our first day of Saturday office hours.
#1 I gave my bosses the heads up, I came in way early and took some work home to do over the weekend.
#2 Admin don’t normally start pulling Saturday shifts until early March.
#3 I am already doing some work from home early mornings or in the evenings after work remotely, AND I have already stayed late 3 of the last 5 days this past week to make sure things got done.
I don’t mind either.
BUT, I do however get a little (read A LOT times ten) bit perturbed when anyone thinks I am not a team player or that I am off goofing off.
And that was so said with a huge amount of eye rolling and attitude.
Currently, I am putting in more time and effort than I normally need to do so soon. And, pretty much more effort than most in the firm at present.
The accountants will soon be CRAZY busy for a good bit of time, and then I am due to be CRAZY busy to pull the rest of it off.
However, this year, I have been CRAZY busy since the receptionist resigned, and…I am STILL due to be CRAZY busy to pull the rest of the tax season off.
I have NO problems with working hard. None at all.
Especially since I have no life at present outside of work. Sad. But true. BUT. One day it will pay off! I just know it. hahaha
I sincerely am trying to figure out how to remain “on” for 4 months straight.
So. Today. Although I did resolve a few things at work remotely….I was all about me and my home.
Which I LOVE.
And I have so much gratitude for one person in particular. (#ThankYou).
My home today, was the apple of my eye, and I about killed myself trying to fixing it up today.
Check out these bruises…
I am one of those fools who prefers to……”God Bless America, I can do this by myself!!!!”
Except when it comes to my motorcycle, then my SBIL (surrogate bro-in law) can take care of things.
Yes. I look like I have been beaten.
No. These bruises will not be gone by Monday when I go back to work.
Yes. I typically wear short sleeve or sleeveless shirts because I get pretty hot running around.
Oh well. I have no man in my life currently, so these horrible bruises cannot be mistaken for abuse.
Check this out!
This is what I bought, a console turn dinning room table, as I work on the whole multi-functional furniture to maximize my space since I own a 1 bedroom condo that I love and want to get the most use out of my space…
Um. I do not know if you caught on, but I did NOT pay attention to the dimensions of the table because this looked pretty small since it “only seated 2.”
Hence the bruises!
When the UPS (a very, very little young woman) courier delivered my package at work (because I am not sure of my home delivery options as of yet) , I said, for real, What the f*ck is that??!!
I then did say, I am very sorry for my language, BUT SERIOUSLY, what the f*ck is that??!!!
I honestly thought a mistake had been made.
So much so that I did not even open the package until Saturday when I stopped in at work to gathering things to take home.
I really thought a mistake had been made and that huge @ss box was so going back to sender!
I unwrapped my larger than life package and to my surprise and pain (please see previous bruises) …
I found EXACTLY what I had ordered, which now resides in my home nicely (yet painfully).
Check this out…
(A). OMG it works out so nicely.
(B) At present this is resting/holding place and not the end result.
Other home projects currently reside above and below the painfully owned console/table that in fact does not comfortable seat two, but holy moly, seriously it could freaking seat SIX thank you very much. hahahaha
I am going to rest now.
Lots to do for work.
For both my home and for work.
But seriously, in this moment in time….I am truly *happy*.
I was able to focus on my home today.
My haven & heaven. ❤
All I can say is…..
And it is about time!!! hahahaha
When mama is happy and grounded, she has so much more to give (true for any individual)!
