Stressed Much?

Filed under: Random — Little Miss @ 7:41 pm

Lord knows stress is not good for anyone, but for me it’s worse. I’m trying to get a document finished by tonight. I thought I had until tomorrow to get it done, but nooooooo. They want it tonight. It’s a fun document, though. I’m editing a script for a Flash software demo that – get this – is ten pages transcribed. Who the hell wants to sit through all that for a software demo. It’s full of superfluous words, changes in first to third person and back again so quick you get whiplash and confused. I even found a phrase in there that said “Well, I’m cool with that so…” Yeah, that’s so professional. So I get to save the day and knock it down to something manageable and comprehensible.

Meanwhile, I’m getting ready to go out of town tomorrow. I had to run some errands today and get the oil changed in my car and the glove box fixed (it kept opening up every time I drove over a bump).  And of course, they told me my headlight was out as were my license plate lights and a parking light. The dealer wanted $50 just to change the headlight. Uh, thanks, but no. I’ll buy the light and my daughter can change them. Well, the store sold her the wrong light bulbs for the parking light, so she had to go exchange them, then she couldn’t get one in right, so it’s unscrewed, and she dropped another screw on the ground. It’s dark out now and we can’t find it. Oh, and I need new windshield wipers too. Plus, they told me that I have a nail in each rear tire. Great. I so don’t need that stress.

To top it all off, I haven’t finished packing for four days away and the washing machine sounds like it wants to die. My darling Marie just wants to sit on my lap, or my chest is more like it, and poke her sharp claws into me because she loooooveees me. Ow.

At this rate, I’ll be up until 2 am. And I haven’t even started to pick out the knitting I want to take with me. I also have to stop a couple places on the way to pick up my mom by 11 am tomorrow. I just want to go to bed.

Guess I’d better quit whining and get back to work. I will have my laptop with me, as I have to work over the weekend, and besides, I have to keep this Blog 365 thingy going.



  1. Sorry about your stress. But isn’t it weird the way animals know you’re going away? They get really clingy, I guess to show you what you’ll be missing.

  2. Also, I like your lip piercing. I’m cool with that. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. @ Wendy: I think Marie the Paperweight likes to do that just to irritate me. She insists on sitting right in the middle of the copy I’m reading.

    Yeah, I forgot to mention that I got my lip pierced. Along with losing about 50 pounds and having extensions put in my hair. I am SUPERWOMAN. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Again…you’ve worn me out, Superwoman. Have fun on your trip though (if you ever get on the road)!

  5. You know, I’m wondering if this deep tissue massage stuff isn’t helping. Since my fibro, I wouldn’t have had 1/10th the level of energy this requires. That, or it will all catch up with me when I get to my destination!
