On top of everything else

Disclaimer: I tell you this, not for sympathy or to be cheered up, but to show that it does happen to everyone.

There are times when that blinking cursor on a page is your nightmare. It just feels like the absolute last straw. Like it's just one more thing demanding from you.

I took yesterday off from work, and today absolutely confirmed that I should never not be at work again. Yelled at for everything, but mostly because I was asking questions and because the boss was stressed about things that didn't get done while I was out but need to be done before he was out at 2. It's a lot of get this, find me that, why the thing, how come, huh? Until I'm literally on the verge of tears. I'm grateful that I didn't cry on the way home. Don't know how I worked that but I did.

Then dinner prep, and groceries, and... and that damn blinking cursor waiting for me to type things. It's just the last thing on top of everything else.

So I tell you what. I'm going to put on the pj's as soon as I finish here, and I'm going to find something to watch that will make me cry about something I want to cry about. And the freaking cursor can blink at me tomorrow!

Sometimes, that cursor is the bane of all things. ;)

(((HUGS))) Sorry today wasn't a great day.

Instead of letting the cursor be demanding, how about if you look at as inviting you in for a hug. It's happy to see you and wants to invite you into a world that you can make whatever you want.

Thanks hon, and yes, it's a portal to a whole new world, but some days it feels more evil than opportunity.

*hugs back at you*

I couldn't agree with you more.

*hugs you tight*

I once told someone I needed to cry, that I could feel it inside me, and they looked at me like I'd grown several heads.

A good cry to release all that pent up emotion can be a very good thing

I cry at everything, all the movies, commercials, music. So that I can suck it until a movie...

But yes, a cathartic crying movie is a wonderful thing.

I'm with you on work and that blasted cursor.

You go have a good cry. I'll be over here petting a puppy.

The puppy definitely helped. And the puppy snoring is always such a wonderful thing.

Bosses who yell are wrong. Plain and simple - no excuses whatsoever. I know that doesn't help resolve your having to deal with him but.... remind yourself when he does, maybe it'll help a teeny bit in terms of modulating the physical impact of it. I hope so.

As for writing...yeah. I sure have those spells where I ask why I'm even putting ass to chair 'cause it so ain't gonna happen!

It's part of the deal with small owner run companies. There is much yelling. No matter if there should be or not. Thank you though. It should help.

Sometimes the whole 'do it, DO IT' that I can hear the cursor yelling at me just crumbles me.

Argh! Work is the worst sometimes. GAH. My boss is great, I love him to death but... he forgets to tell me things. Important things. And then I find out from one of our contractors while he's on vacation. *headdesk* So I feel your pain.

I don't know if this will help, but when that blinking cursor starts to get the better of me, I switch to pen and paper. Why? Because you can doodle on the paper, and make it not so blank and intimidating. It's not foolproof, but it does tend to help me at least get started. *hugs*

I actually stared at the notebook and pencil the other day and it was ugly.

But eventually I got it done!

YES! Go you! And my handwriting is awful, so mine isn't all that pretty either! LOL
