It's been a long, hard, frustrating week for me. Boohoo. Whine, whine.

I thought I was ready to fire some customers, maybe even quit my job forever. But then my friends pumped me up. Turns out, my customers aren't as evil as I thought... they're just human.

I thought I was ready to strangle my children and sell them on eBay. But then my friends pumped me up. Turns out, my children aren't as evil as I thought, they're just humanoid teens.

I thought I was ready to kill my husband and bury him where no one could find him and it would take a loong time for anyone to miss him. Heh. But then my best friend pumped me up and reminded me of why I love him so much and have stuck with him for so many years. Turns out, my husband is just a humanoid father/husband/40-yr. old man.

I thought I was so far behind on paying my bills that I could never catch up and would lose stuff I want/need. But then the money I needed showed up. Turns out, than even in the darkest moments, there is a ray of light.

I thought I was a horrible, terrible person for spending too much time online for "fun" and not keeping in touch with my REAL LIFE peoples and responsibilities. And then I got several phone calls from online/real life friends. There was good news and there was bad news but the end result was that it put my own life in perspective. I'm only human and I'm doing the best I can.

At the end of this week, I'm feeling compassionate about the struggles my friends/family/customers have dealt with this week, I've gained a new perspective on my own struggles and I'm SO very grateful for my blessings. I'm determined to start a brand new week without feeling so sorry for myself anymore!

Yeah, right. Haha! I'll probably be singing this same tired, old song again very soon, heh. But at least I'm singing it, right? Afterall, I'm only HUMAN! >;-D

Feb. 2, 2008 at 11:55 PM You kicked the shit outta this week, just like I knew you would! You are way too tough for any of that stuff to take over your life! Sorry it all had to mess with your head! But, I guess you proved that there is some pretty good skills in there when it comes to squashing problems!! You go, girlfriend!

Feb. 3, 2008 at 4:46 PM boo hoo wah hoo.  LOL  People are human and humans are people.  I would also like to be a unicorn.  Are you granting wishes?  I would like to be a bicorn - 2 horns instead of just one for double the pleasure.
