Feedback Please

A group of coworkers all agree that they want to do something together, say, sponsor a needy family or two. Then, one person becomes the point person. That one person is always the point person, but has made a point of asking for more help on previous projects. This project, she doesn't ask for help specifically, but hints at needing it. She gets marginal assistance, more than usual, so clearly the coworkers got the hint. She ends up taking care of every detail and planning point her damn self! No one even checks to see if it's getting done. They just don't ever think about it, or let her know they've thought about it.

Can she be mad?

If you scream at a tree in the woods, will it fall down on your least favorite coworker?

What a day

Today, I have to attend a wake. I didn't ever meet the deceased, but I teach her son.

This week, 3 children ages 12, 7, and 1 lost a mother to cancer.

Tonight I will go home and hug my children until they scream and run away from me, just because I can.

Today, I strongly dislike my...

1. Job
2. Co-workers
3. Location
4. Sinuses
5. Pants
6. Boss

Brianna won't let me say hate because it's a "bad word". Which I suppose is something I taught her... because it's something my grandma taught me.

I am trying to find joy in...

1. The holiday season
2. My loving family
3. My work schedule
4. I am alive to be mad and feel pain.
