The Beat Goes On....

It's been a white-knuckled, stomach-churning, vein-exploding, stress-overloaded week. I wasn't sure on Thursday night if I could take much more. But for the sake of my child and what SHOULD have been HER week, I endured whatever came along. I took stupid crap from so many frustrating people. I ran and ran and ran, despite not being a perpetual motion machine. Just when I thought I couldn't run anymore, I got up, and ran again. I had so many fingers in so many pots for so many different people, I didn't know exactly what the menu included. But I do know that in spite of everything, I served up a hell of a two-day party :::pat pat pat on the back:::. Thank the gods for Patrick and Nancy, who held me together with their loving, unconditional friendship (though Patrick thinks I have it easy, he HARDLY has to live my less than charmed life). Bryson can be thankful while he's away at camp that I didn't break his pointed little head when he pulled his "Smith Stunt" the day before camp. Let's recap the last two weeks in the life of The High Priestess. Shall we?

1. Calls to CSULB: 6 calls totalling 4 hours
2. Calls to Claim Jumper because they screwed me yet AGAIN: 3 calls resulting in a Fed Ex package with my evals which I have to provide to
my new employer because..did I mention that Claim Jumper screwed me again?
