I'm still alive...

I plan on refraining from writing about the imaginary pair of testicles that I do not have (see last post) however, if I did have a pair now would be the time to use them.

Things in my world have been Crazy (Yes, with a "Capital C"). You see we have this new program at work that has taken off like wildfire and has kept me extremely busy with phone calls day and night and visiting clients throughout the state of MN in 100 degree heat that has left me, well, exhausted.

I'm tired. Period. Actually, my sister bought me this awesome deep tissue massage that is calling my name, but I don't have time to get it done. It's like it's at my finger tips, just out of my reach. So frustrating.

To add insult to injury I have to work tomorrow. Albeit at home buying deals, it's still work and takes a HUGE chunk out of what should be my well-earned two-day weekend and turns it into a day and a half weekend. Blah.

I shouldn't complain. I'll stop complaining. I'm doing really well and getting paid equally as well for all my hard work, I just wish sometimes these things would come easier. You know?

GO TWINS!

That's all.

Y'know, I think I would be happier with my sales-y job if I was getting paid for as hard as I work. And I totally understand on the "easier" part - its like sometimes you just need a little bit of a windfall to give you enough time to catch your breath before diving back in.
Try to enjoy what you get of your weekend!

Jen, you're doing a great job and I have 15 deals for you maybe with you buying this weekend we can stretch it to 20+. Now I know the pressures of your job because guys like me are usually applying that pressure, however, I find it relaxing listening to opera and classiscal music while I work. When out of work gotta have the Stones or U2 on but there is something relaxing about fat Italian opera singers. Keep your dober up!!! I still don't know what a dober is after hearing it all these years.

Muse: I totally know what you mean. It seems like you spend so much time and effort getting where you need to be and then when you finally get there you get to enjoy it for about 12 hours and then it's time to start all over again!
It's the nature of the beast!

Todd: Thank you so much for all your support with this...It's been amazing how everyone is really catching on to this new program. It makes my job that much better! I talked to Bob yesterday and we're going to pick a Saturday for lunch...I'll have to check my schedule to see when I'm buying and we'll make it the day I'm off so I can get down there at a decent lunch hour.
Thanks again! You're the BEST!

Jenni,

It sounds like you are going to be rich and famous soon, and I support that fully. Good luck, and I hope that you get some time to relax when you can.

Hang in there! There must be something in the air because my work is crazy too... just got back from 4 16-hour days in Detroit aka. 'The Paris of the Midwest' I need a nap!

Barry said...

Sounds like you are enjoying work. I like doing my job, but it still stresses me. I think that is part of what makes it good. Always good to unwind though.

Jenni, I just read the new TV post. I want one of those even though I NEVER watch TV! I do rent videos, though and I need the room. As for your insane working situation, bitch all you want. You earned it. And it's good to earn stuff.

Don't make me repeat my daily commute to make you feel better. An hour each way every day = 10 hours of travel just to get to the office every week. Got any openings with your company? ;)

(Also: Glad to see you've changed the contributers to Jenni and Not Jenni - I was wondering when this fictional "Danika" gal was going to show up! Have I told you that Danika is my step-sister's name? It is. And I know you're so glad I just shared that with you. I'll go now.)

Work blows so much. I want to be a student forever. Too bad that ship sailed over a year ago. I guess there's always the Ph.D...hmmph.

I like this blog. Just stumbled upon it. I think I will add it to the blogroll very soon.

Steph said...

Are you fricking kidding me? Theres' not a buyer in my branch right now who's not polishing off their resume.
I'm so glad it's taking off for you!

Greg said...

Yeah, I'm with you. Keep up the good work!

I'm pulling for your Twins too because they have been beating up on the White Sox. I'm a bitter, bitter Cubs fan.

Oh gawd. You, Chrissy and I need to go out, have some drinks and beyotch about work together. It'll be so therapeutic.
