|I want my mommy
||[Jan. 29th, 2003|07:13 am]
I'm tired of having to be the grownup. I don't want to get in the shower, get on the road, get through another 14-hour day.
As I said in a comment to Lyssa, my Legal Writing prof was all sympathy yesterday. "You'd better cut back and take it easy."
Who's gonna let me off the hook? Sure as hell not school, and work's done all they can.
So I take a deep breath and keep moving. Because I don't have any choice.
Do you have to go to school after work today? Come home & have a nap. You sound frazzled. :( I wish I could take a vacation in Tahiti about now, but since that's not possible I try to take teeny breaks when I can. Even if it's a 20 minute nap here or a hot bath there. That way when I'm at the end of my rope, I'm a little less likely to let go entirely. This time of year in Ohio is not easy for ANYBODY. Feel better. :(
Absolutely. I am allowed 2 absences in one class, four in the other all semester. If I get the flu or something, I will be in trouble. Besides, everything moves so quickly that missing anything is hugely risky.
A nap would be wonderful. I might try to grab one in the library comfy chairs, if I have time...
Thank you, sweetie. You brought tears of gratitude to my eyes. I am doing this to myself, but you're right that it's with good reason. I will try to bear that perspective in mind as I forge ahead.
Not that I'm going to stop whining, mind you [g].
I miss you, by the way. There hasn't been anything of me left over to spend time with you, but I think of you. Unfortunately, I can't even call you from the car during the downtime of driving, because I only have one hand to steer with!
Please try to. You sound so tired & unhappy & I know you'd feel at least a little better. :( I love library comfy chairs...and I also love bookstores that have them too. I can be happy spending all day snuggled somewhere reading & drinking coffee till my hands shake! hee hee...I try to limit myself to 2 coffees cuz I get jittery after that but y'know. S'good. :)
That was my worst day so far, other than getting hurt. I am improving, though not as fast as I'd like.
Thank you for the good wishes, though.
that you feel so awful. I wish i could help beyond sympathetic words.
Just know I am here to listen, at the least.
And I hide bodies, if necessary.

Re: I am sorry
No bodies to hide, just wy too many reasonable demands.
Now, if you'd made that offer when I was at my last job....
