Sunday, Sunday.....


My only day off this week and the Human Resources Manager texted at home to inquire why I didn't have any hires for Saturday....

Nice.

My anxiety has been pretty high, this adds to the list of reasons why.

The Spawn and I are hunkered down for the day, watching movies and arguing with each other about whether or not I'm fake at work.

Middle - Everyone at work thinks you are so nice. They love you.

Me - Well, I just treat people the way I want to be treated in return.

Spawn - Uh, no you don't. You're just fake.

Me - What?!?

Spawn - Of the people in the world, I'm the one who knows you best. And, I know you're fake at work.

- Maybe that's the real and I don't like having to be the mean mom who makes you use your manners and pick after yourself the time.

Spawn - I like you that way. It's more realistic.

I kind of wanted to laugh and cry at the same time.

She's a stinker, but she loves her Momma. Even as I sit here typing this, I commented that my feet were cold, so she put her feet my own and wrapped her blanket around them.

I like her just the way she is, too.

Most of the time....

    I hate it when coworkers bring up work on your time off. My boss emailed updates all weekend starting with "I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend". Uhhhhh, maybe we would if you'd stop bringing up work!
He works out of the corporate office, so he has no concept of anyone's time but his own. He continued to text all day yesterday.... I don't carry my cell on me when I'm at work. Good lord....

    thanks for sharing this post

    who we are at work and who we are away may be entirely different personnas

    when I go away from the office, people do see the "real" me

    my daughter calls me out on many things

    I call my mom out on many things

    but, I am not a diva, just sayin'

    hmm

    Elvis Costello - "She"

    She may be the face I can't forget
    The trace of pleasure or regret
    May be my treasure or the price I have to pay
    She may be the song that summer sings
    Maybe the chill that autumn brings
    Maybe a hundred different things
    Within the measure of a day
We all know I do have a work personality.... But I really wasn't lying when I said I treated other people the way I wanted to be treated in return. I am a firm believer in the Golden Rule.. Perhaps if we all practiced this from time to time, the world would be a little bit better place.

She is a wonderful kid. I'm going to miss her next week when she's at her dads.

I am glad they aren't afraid to be themselves with me. It's something I was never able to do as a child....

    The girl has spunk; gotta admire these young girls. They watch Demi, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez and Miley handle their shit and answer for it too and show no fear while doing it. At her age, I wish I was that fearless.
I wish I had been that fearless at her age too.
