little whine to go with my cheese...

Okay, can I just whine for a little while, please?
Feel free not to read this post, it's okay, it won't hurt my feelings... I just need a place to complain and moan and groan and, well, you get the picture (if you're still here)
You know, I get it that I'm supposed to be thankful that I have a job when so many other people can't find a job anywhere and I really am thankful deep down inside for the opportunity to work my hiney off for next-to-no pay or appreciation. But I'm tired people, TIRED. I don't want to work anymore, I want to win the lottery and just stay home and read and crochet and watch movies and hang out in my pj's, like on the weekends, but all the time.
I've been sick with a cold/sinus/headache thing for two weeks straight, which makes me a very unhappy camper and all I want to do is crawl in bed for another two weeks straight and sleep. No I'm no depressed or crying out for help, so please don't get all "crisis intervention" on me. I just need to rest my pretty little head and not think about anything for a while. Anyone else know what I'm sayin'?
And I miss my little home and friends here in blogland! All I seem to have the energy or motivation for lately is skimming updates on my Google reader and making a few comments here and there, other than that my mind is one big snotty uncreative blob. WAAAAHHH
Everyday I think I'll have more energy to come here after work or in the evening, or whenever, and post my little heart out, but every day is the same. So don't y'all go thinking I've forgotten you, nope, not in a million years, and soon I'll be back with a mighty blogging vengeance, I promise!!!!
Hey, did ya'll hear the one about the man that was asked by his friends what he would want on his tombstone after he passed on? He tells them all that he would hope it would say something about him being a Godly man who loved to read his Bible and do good for others, and so on and so forth.... After that they all turned to his wife and asked her the same question about what she'd like on her tombstone, to which her answer was short and sweet:

"I TOLD YOU I WAS SICK!"

Lol, sorry, since I'm on the subject of being sick I couldn't resist.

Anyhoo, if you kept reading till now, you are a better person than I am, I probably would have quit listening to me complain after the first sentence up there! Thanks for hanging out with me, even at my worst, that's what makes a true friend. :o)

Today is my daughter Nicole and son in law Bryan's first wedding anniversary but I'm going to save that for a post all it's on, hope they don't mind, which I'm sure they won't because they don't ever read my blog anyway. But, they deserve not to be lumped in with my sour attitude here. So tomorrow I will pick up with a more cheery demeanor and pay them tribute then.

Till next time,

Tiff

First off...yes, you are entitled to whine!!! LOL
And you have some legitimate reasons too. In your type of job I know when you are dealing with people in tough situations...over time it is just "wearing", and easy to burn out.
I could offer you some sage advice that a friend once gave me when I was whining about similar things....she told me to take the weekend off, stay in my jammies, eat my favorite ice cream and mope. But come Monday, I had to work on a plan to change what was bugging me...either find a new way to deal with my situation, or look for a new job or a way of making money from home so I could do more of what I wanted to.
Just sayin......
Whatever you need to do...whine away.....
I am sending you hugs with no judgements and prayers for brighter days SOON. (And by the way, stop praying for patience, I don't think the outcome is working for you!!! LOL)
Love Ya Gal!!!

I Am starting to sound like a broken record. Your blog, your rules. I actually like to hear others bitch. It makes me seem not so all alone. Kinda why I like the whole bloggy world, you can always find someone in that same or similar situation. Keep your chin up, when you are at the bottom, the only way to go is up! I just typed this on my phone so does thAt show dedication. Or what?

Hags and prayers -

We all need to whine from time to time.

I'm a total whiner...I so get it :)

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

I read your WHOLE posts...conrats to your daughter and son in law! My first year was bliss...but for others it's the hardest! Hope their first leaned more towards mine!

If I was still sick after two weeks I would have been MIA and if I did post I would have been a BIGGER complainer...trust me! :)

I know you won't abandoned me...so I don't freak if I don't hear from you...until like after a full day...I usually wait the allotted 24 hours before I start worrying! lol! So you're okay! :)

Hi Tiff,
Sounds like the whining thing is going around. The way I look at it, whining is phase one on the way to bigger and better things. Whine on!

Tiff said...

Thanks for all the love y'all, you're the best!!!

It's 100% okay to feel crappy in a job you don't feel passionate about anymore. I have a theroy about the "I never want to work again" attitude--I think (I hope) it actually goes away if you find a job you (gasp) enjoy. I hope. You can do it!

Growin' with it! said...

oh man, we all have days like this! so whine on chica..whine on! ;o) hope you get that rest...SOON!

Nan said...

As others have said before me, you are not alone and you deserve to vent, and yes, I read your whole post! LOL, here, would a new blog award give you a warm and fuzzy feeling? Head over to my blog and pick it up, cause I think you're extraordinary! Oh, and if you haven't read the post about "OLD" friends, maybe that will put a smile on your face!

Just a note, you actually have to play the lottery to win the lottery. I learned that the hard way.
Feel better Tiff!
