Funky Tuesday

I am in a funk today.

This past weekend was very good, but I had to deal with a lot of tech issues and these issues all need to be dealt with today and this week. 99% of the time I love my job and wouldn't trade it for anything, but today is that rare 1% where I feel like I am fighting a losing battle with some of my techs. It just sucks sometimes when I work so hard to make my tech team a great team and then there are a few that are determined to destroy all the hard work I have done.

Since Friday I have really really really really really really really (you get the point) wanted a cigarette. I don't know if it's because I am PMSing or the fact that it was a holiday weekend. I didn't smoke, but I really wanted to.

Hopefully it will all be better by Thursday. Someone I know is having a birthday.

So, until I pull myself out of this funk....Go visit Lynilu and wish her a Happy 2nd Blog Anniversary.

I'm reading, and hearing from a couple locals I've talked with today, that the weekend and/or today was/is a tough one for quite a few. Phase of the moon? Weather? Having to go back to work? Having to spend the weekend with family? having to spend the weekend away from family? I donno.

I used to find that on holidays or holiday weekends, my staff were more inclined to call me, too. I think there is an underlying resentment that says, "I'm working, so you aren't going to have a day off, either."

Whatever is going on, the big thing is .... YOU DIDN'T SMOKE!! Yay, you!!!

Deep breath - you WILL get through. Holiday week-ends always depress me for some reason. Hugs honey. Happy Early Birfday!
