Welcome to my pity party. No gifts please.

Okay maybe a little gift.

I am having kind of a crappy day so far. I met with some people about managing their rental house a while ago and I drove by the house this morning to see a For Rent sign from another company in the yard. Is it wrong to hope it sits vacant for six months and someone moves in and turns it into a meth lab? I had talked to them and figured they probably weren't going to hire me, but it was kind of a slap in the face to see the sign. I know them from church so I was hoping that they would give me a chance.

And I really, really need the money. I have less than $20 in my checking account and more than a week until pay day.

I also weighed in this morning and I only lost one pound (.45 Kg.). I was bummed. I know I should be happy with the loss and BLAH BLAH BLAH....

My sister/co-worker didn't show up to work yesterday until 5:00 PM! WTF?! I get OFF work at 5:00 PM. I don't show up then. She didn't work at all on Friday OR Monday. I seriously think she is depressed and having a hard time coping with life. I'm having a hard time mustering up sympathy.

I used to think that people who were willing to work hard and live modestly ended up getting ahead, but now I think maybe it is the people who are willing to use others and take advantage of people who get ahead. How messed up is that?

Amanda, I'm sorry that things are rough now. I hope things get better and fast. I'm sending good vibes your way.

Can't say anything about the rental house. I know nothing if anyone asks if you were hoping against them. I didn't hear or see or read a negative thought ever! And I'll tell everyone you hoped and prayed for wonderful things!

Eeks on the money. Hang in there. I know that doesn't help, though. :)

At least it was one! It wasn't the same or worse, up. It's the right direction! I know, blah blah blah...

As for your sister. If you suspect depression...maybe you need to offer up some lovins. I understand why no sympathy...but depression can lead to worse things than not showing up for work and those are warning signs. Please don't take them too lightly.

I can understand why you think that way. But I'm still gonna go with keep doin' what yer doin' and it will come around two-fold (if not more) when it's time. Everything happens for a reason. Not what you want to hear at the time...but it will all work out just the way it was meant to.

Hang in there. I know none of this helps...rough times are just rough no matter what.

It's very messed up - but unfortunately somewhat true. It sounds like you're have a pretty bad time right now - I have my down in the dumps days too & they suck! So here's a {{HUG}} - feel better :)

Hi Amanda...thanks for stopping by my world. I completely understand where your coming from. If it helps any I only have $10 in the bank...let's split it and have a skinny girl margareta

Hope you have a better day tomorrow

Hey Amanda...I am also sending some {{{hugs}}} your way.

I am so with you on what you are wishing for the rental home. They should have at least said something to you if they go to your church!

I am a true believer in the saying "what doesn't kill you will make you stronger". You'll get through this "bump" in the road and we are all hear to do what we can.

I'm sorry. Sometimes things just plain old suck. Keep venting here! We're here for you.

Sorry to hear things are getting you down. Sometimes we all feel like that but at the end of the day I truly believe in karma...treat others how you like to be treated and what goes round comes around. Keep plugging away and things will look up. Keep letting all your frustrations out here...we get it. Hugs

carla said...

just wanted to say hang in there...thanks for your kind words. It will get better and Karma is a b*%#h

Kristin said...

Ugh, Amanda, sorry to hear things are so tough right now. I hope you find things on an upswing soon. In the meantime, I'm thinking of you.

Drazil said...

Ugh - I want to send Drazil there to kick all their asses for making you feel this way. You hang in there...this too shall pass and you'll get through it. Have hope.
Smooches.

Just sending good thoughts your way. Sorry you're having a bad day.

From a purely practical point of view, you can't afford to carry your sister, can you? If money is that tight then a co-worker not pulling their weight makes it impossible. Do hope you can have a quiet/common sense type talk with her to clear the air.... You have all my sympathy, though I appreciate that it doesn't put food on the table.

this all sucks... you are granted the pity party, but now you gotta figure out how to make the best of it and not let your sister have a repeat performance.. tell her exactly how you feel, and that you need her support now too... hugs to you...

Bonnie said...

I'm so sorry things are rough right now. If I lived near you I would totally go to that rental property and toilet paper the place. Sounds like your sister could use some anti-depressants. Seriously.

Cindylew said...

So sorry things are sucky right now.
I'm sending out good vibes and sending you a virtual hug.
Please hand in there...things will get better.
