Tennis ball meltdown

Wednesday, July 20th, 2005 | Pete Stuff

Uggg… So yesterday was probably the closest i’ve ever come to just melting down into a puddle of jell-o underneath my desk. This week has been a SERIOUSLY rough one from all perspectives and its only Wednesday. I had what felt like a hundred different things going on at work all on the same day ranging from things I needed to work on with employees to customer drama to scheduling drama to you name it. In the middle of all of that I got a phone call from my Dad regarding my Grandma S who isn’t doing so well saying that she was about to go into surgery. All that combined with some other stuff that was lingering in my brain from before the day began all added up to a whole lot of stress all rolled up into one big ball.. I kinda felt like I was standing in front of a tennis ball pitching machine without a racquet. I REALLY have to learn how to stop, take a deep breath, and just take things one at a time – unfortunately my job and my life doesn’t allow that – I just have to do my best to keep all of the plates spinning and, if one has to fall, make sure its not the expensive one..

Anyway.. sorry… just had to vent and this seemed like a good place to do it… things are more under control today… still lots going on but at least my head isn’t about to explode! :):)

More to come!
