...I'm gonna hit my head against the wall and just. Keep. Pounding.
For those of you who are friends with me on Facebook, you'll recognize this as my status from last night...and up to now, since I haven't changed my status yet.
Lately, my life both in and out of work has consisted of questions like these:
"Kitten, can you do this for me?"
"Kitten, I need you to be at this meeting at 3:45."
"We need you to complete this by noon."
"So and so has been looking for you for the past 2o minutes."
"We need you here...we know it's short notice, but we really need you here."
Now, imagine that all those five above sentences are crammed into one, and say them as fast as you can, and you get the picture as to why I'm spinning like a top.
Don't get me wrong, I function better when I'm busy, but lately it's all been TOO MUCH!!
I also have another problem.
I've always had trouble saying no to people. Well, depending on the situation...I'm not like Ado Annie that I accept a date with anyone who asks. But I've always been willing to help and volunteer for things. However, there's a part of me that is a huge people-pleaser. I don't like to disappoint people, and have always been fearful of what will happen if I say no.
I've gotten better over the years at saying "no" to certain things, but I still go overboard with the yesses sometimes.
This is not one of those times, though. When your boss tells you to do something, you do it. Fortunately I have a really great boss who knows when things get too much for me. He's trying to teach me how to delegate. It's a lesson I'm learning, albeit slowly.
Anyhoo, I need some rest, and soon. This morning I locked my keys in my car after I arrived at work, and I've been a whirling dervish ever since. Fortunately AAA unlocked it for me in record time.
But I can't rest right now. I've got choir practice soon. And I have to bake pumpkin bread for someone who was a huge help when I locked myself out of my car.
Eight hours of uninterrupted sleeps sounds so luxurious right now, so glorious, so decadent...
