I'm usually a pretty happy go lucky gal, when bad stuff hits me, I manage to deal with it in a comical way (my way of handling stress I guess). My bosses in the past always found that my way of handling stress in the office to be abit wee unusual, but I got the job done, and even better then they expected. Well, the last week, since I got dumped on with a role I did not want to take on in a volunteer organisation quite so abruptly has been REALLY difficult for me.
I just went thru' a crying/breakdown session, which isn't normal for me (only when it's PMS time or a bad low blood sugar) in an attempt to find my darn (using nice words here for my audience) library card. Without that card I cannot take out the book that I have waiting for me at the libary. Today is the last day I can get it - and I've not been able to leave the house lately due to ... the dumped on President VOLUNTEER job. I am now wondering, is this why the former President resigned (he's non communicado since he said "Hasta la vista baby" - and he meant it with a glazed look in his eyes as he handed over the resignation letter - he never wants to deal with us (or perhaps just moi) again). So many unanswered questions as you can see. To top it all off, now besides all the other volunteer roles I do for this diabetic group, I'm now the Secretary as that person quit the week before the President (note to self - shave legs - they are too hairy for side slit skirt).
The strange thing out of all this stress that's been thrust upon me (and yes, some of it's my own doing as I'm a perfectionist) - is my friggin' blood sugars are singing merrily along, in the range I like to keep them at. WTF? Does this mean that my D body thrives on horrible stress like this, that causes my skin to have wierd things occurring on it, gastric probs - belch??? I mean, give me a break!
Anyway, I am now on Round 3 - of looking for this darn library card - so I can pick up my book. I am coming across stuff that I forgot I had (have been doing alot of travelling lately, and have to pack this and that, and I'm fairly anal about being organised). Give me strength friends, in staying out of the looney bin, as I'm feeling just about ready to commit myself to one!
To top this all off, heading off to Marblehead, MA this weekend to prep the Catalina 30 we purchased last month for it's journey westward hoe to Canada (we've given up the dream of sailing it back, no time, boat has been on the hard for 2 years so alot of "what if's" could occur in the ocean sail). So, again, I'm living out of a suitcase (how do business men do this???). This should be a happy occassion for me - bringing Jenna's Journey home - but with all that's going on - it's put a damper on things!
Okay - back to the search I go. Maybe I'll find a winning lottery ticket that I never knew I had (I haven't bought one in about 20 years - so that's just a pipe dream). I just want my darn library card - so I can take a break from my desktop (the joys of working from home - sometimes isn't so fantastic as you think).
