Really want to cry

It's the middle of The Week From Hell at work. Things aren't going to get better very fast. I come home exhausted from the stress of what is going on and all I want to do is sit and cry. And maybe scream obscenities at a few really stupid people. You know I don't ever say much about my work (the smart thing to do) but this week really takes the cake. I will say this...my job is not in jeopardy but it really sucks to be in management and know what is really going on.

Imagine my surprise and extreme pleasure to open my mailbox and find this RAK from Jill of Purple peacock. Jill wrote she saw I needed new scissors so... Completely gobsmacked, that's me! Jill, I can't thank you enough. Your thoughtfulness and generosity are phenomenal. I think you must be a touch psychic too, your gift could not have come at a better time. I needed cheering. ***HUGS***


Here is Ranae's ladybug fob on my darling new scissors. They fit together just perfectly!


Thank you again, darling Jill.
You really made my week!

I am so sorry about your work situation. Tell me who they are and I'll come smack 'em into compliance! No joke - I'd do that for you!!

It's great how these RAK's don't seem so R - do they? It seemed like someone had a feeling!

I hope there are some bright spots in your week at work. I'm so glad to know you. You're the best!!

Sending you big squishy hugs a bunch of smiles!

Great gift from Jill too and excellent timing!

Wendy said...

That is a wonderful RAK!!

I can imagine how you feel for the moment! I have been in the same situation, to be on a job, and people where you have to work with can be so mean to eachother. Maybe it is a good thing you just sit there and cry. It might give you a better feeling after. Hope the situation will soon be much better for you.

Take care,
Wendy
