Do you ever have one of those days where you feel you may be the only one with a brain? Conversely, do you ever have one of those days where you feel pretty brainless?
Today was of the former. It seemed everything I needed from everyone else resulted in a blank stare and total lack of ownership.
Normally I would type in the examples of it here and make some funny blog material out of my pain, but you know what? I'm just too frustrated to do that. I just want to call up these people and say, "Just F-ing Do It!!!!!" Come on people. You are driving me crazy!
My boss (who as I continually tell people - is the bomb) gave me excellent advice about how this was not my responsibility, and how I should have pushed most of this stuff back out to the truly responsible people. While I appreciate it and know she is right, do you know that feeling you get, like that would be swell if I just had another week to get this done, but since I don't, I have to solve it first, dissect it second, and get people to get it right the next time? (Please tell me I'm not the only one who has those feelings!).
On the flip side, I've scheduled Friday off. Because you know what...I wasn't kidding about that note about getting perspective from last Friday, and it is supposed to be a beautiful Spring day. There is nothing going on this Friday that cannot go on without me.
I'll be in my yard, on my hammock (rescued from winter storage), or perhaps getting busy with some garden cleanup should I be so inspired.
I anticipate my Friday Feelings this week will be relaxation, relief, and restoration.
