It's been a really rough week. Stomach flu, my back is out, crazy customer who emailed with some problem..but wouldn't check her email for another 24 hours making me deal with her every. single. day. Crazy vendor / owner that I need to run my business hung up on me. Twice. And then started emailing every few minutes me once I asked a sales rep there if she was OK. And last, but never least, there are the people who think my life is created to serve them. That I should drop everything because they need something. RIGHTNOW. Yes, the bastards are getting me down.
This year feels like a punch in the gut that won't go away. I really doubt I will find a job in the remainder of 2009 and some part of me is so ready for it to be over. I'm exhausted. I'm at some crossroads that I feel I've been at for years...waiting for something to push me in one direction or another. I just need to get on with...something. And some part of me feels like packing it all in and heading for Baton Rouge. But I can't bring Mabel. The airlines have made it so difficult and expensive to travel a large dog. It costs $1000! So Mabel will be staying here when I finally do head home. And that breaks my heart but, I so need a trip out of LA and I don't have the $$$ to go anywhere else but home. So until I leave in December, I'll just keep fantasizing about what was the best day of 2009....Mabel's day at the ocean:
