Thoughts On Thursday

I don't know where I found this image
Here's a couple of things that make me wonder:
  • How in the world can I ever say "I'm bored"??? There are a ton of things to do around here and I have many, many interests. What is wrong with me?
  • Why would anyone let nearly 400 emails pile up in their inbox....or more accurately why do I do that? Do you?
  • Why would a mother put her 3-1/2 year old child in a booster seat and then put the shoulder harness behind the back of the booster because 'he's too small for the shoulder belt'? 
  • How a newly hired person, who is in charge of the keeping track of the company checkbook,  let the balance show a negative amount when said person knows the minimum balance is suppose to be 5 figures??? How can that person not ask for help if she's unsure??? How can you just leave a mess for someone else to figure out, especially when I have no idea of how it ended up that way? How, how, how!!!
Can you tell that I am soooooooo stressed??? Tuesday was a horrible day at work. I was trying to figure out what when wrong, digging through bank deposits and calling the bank. I took a very short lunch so I could have some extra time to try to figure things out. After supper I went to a Stampin' Up party, that's always fun. We made 2 nice cards but I really just wanted to be alone and quiet. I slept very badly Tuesday night. I was awake at 3 and got up about 4 to type some notes for the gal I am training. I feel bad b/c I can't spend time with her, she is doing well though :-). Before noon on Wednesday I FINALLY got the checkbook balanced. That certainly was a wonderful feeling....I imagine the business owners were ecstatic! Hopefully now I can concentrate on training my replacement, there's a lot more to my job than punching numbers into a computer program.  Today I'll be working with Cindy (for the first time) and Audrey. I hope we can get on the same page and do it right. I really need the day off, but we didn't get the invoices out....if the company doesn't get paid, we don't get paid....right???

Wish be luck!!! Please..............


  1. I thank you for coming to my party and helping Carolee. I am so sorry about all your stress. I hope your bosses let you work with both girls to train them the right way to do things! I know it means more hours but will be less stressful in the long run.

  2. OMG, Linda! WHAT a mess! You poor woman. I hate it when someone doesn't ask questions and just keeps blundering along. You sure have your work cut out for you. I hope you get a good night's sleep tonight- xo Diana

  3. So glad that the mess at work got cleared up! Linda to the rescue!
    I probably have that many, or more, emails in my box. I don't know why I can't delete them! I do the same thing with snail mail and other things also....I might want to look at it again.
