Well - in my Jitters post below I mentioned it looked to be a rough day.

I was planning for the worst and hoping for...well, not the worst.

I got worse than the worst. I'm so tired and beaten down tonite I can't even begin to tell you - just trust me when I say...not a good day. Nope, not at all.

And the whole way home I had a little fantasy going. Simple one really - here, let me share. Honest it's safe for work.

I'd get home and there would be a drink poured. Dinner simmering on the stove/in the oven. I would get into comfy clothes and just snuggle down in my favorite corner of the couch. Dinner is brought to me - nothing fancy (I am after all, watching what I eat) and my drink refilled. After dinner - the dishes are clean!! (and my hands never hit the dish water!!!) I snuggle further down into the couch and watch a sweet, simple movie.

Damn - sometimes being single really REALLY sucks.

OK - time to go fix a bowl of soup and start a load of laundry. Ahh but the fantasy was so nice while it lasted........

I'm sorry you had a crap day. That sucks! I'm thinking about you tonight.... I used to have a job that sucked ASS and I would cry Sunday night because I had to face another week in HELL. (hear it echo: hell hell hell)
I was a single mother then with no hope for a date. It really was, honestly, second running for the worst time of my life.
Anyhow, I wish that I could pour us a coupla stiff ones and smoke a coupla smokes and talk about *anything* but work!

Since I'm living your fantasy, here's how you do it. Get one roommate who is a gay man and a trained chef. Get another roommate (first one's mother) who cleans. Get up in the morning - coffee is ready. Come home from work/school - house is clean, supper is simmering on the stove. Curl up on couch with laptop and wait for supper to appear. Unfortunately after supper there is school work to be done, but nothing is perfect.

Now, don't you hate me? :-)

Sorry you had a bad day, but you still have the comfy spot on the couch, and if you make yourself two drinks at the same time, when the first one is finished, you already have a refill brought to you!

I'm starting to think a few of us should just get a group blog to post on job woes- it seems to be going around!

TheWinterOfOurDiscontent.com, anyone?

MCI - that's just wrong to tease me like that!! LOL

Raging Mom - I think it's something in the water up here!!!

Alli - come on over. I got a stocked bar and plenty of lounging space. We could have us a damn fine time.

Ktreva - I tried that - but it's just not the same! :-(

Just like work, I talk/type and no one listens/reads. sigh.

Sorry, Tammi, I just couldn't resist. Besides teasing is soooo much better than my deadly dull job (although it does keep the lights on *grin*)
