Confessional Thursday


Thursday, March 3, 2016

I started writing this confessions post Tuesday because I have a lot on my mind. So grab your coffee, sit back and enjoy my confessions. They are bound to be bitchy. Sorry in advance.

I confess that I didn't get the promotion. And here is the kicker, it was a tie between me and another coworker, and they gave it to him because he had been here 2 months longer than me. 2 months. Not a way to decide a promotion. Did they forget that he threatened to kill me at work a few years back? He was investigated for this and I have NOTHING on my record. I am more than a little pissed off. Bullshit.

I confess that no matter how hard I work, how hard I try and how much I better myself for my job, it never pays off. So why do I even put this much effort in? So many of my coworkers just slide on by and never get fired, so why can't I just do that and not care?

I confess that my abdomen hurts more than I let on. I try to be super mom/wife/woman, but this surgery really took it out of me. I just hope the results are everything I hoped and have been promised.

I confess that I am DYING for a BOTTLE of wine, but I can't even have a drink until I am off my pain meds and antibiotics. I watched The Bachelor with no wine. How is that even possible?

I confess that as soon as I heard I didn't get the job, I went to the bathroom to cry. And then I went online to shop for something. I had to make myself feel better somehow. Say hello to my new kimono.

I confess that I finally got to take a shower Monday evening, after almost four days of no showering, and it was the best shower I have ever felt. There is no amount of dry shampoo or Mustela that can give you that feeling. Yes, I used my kids Mustela for my "sponge baths". That stuff is the best!

I confess that we have a no making Danielle laugh policy at home right now. When I laugh, sneeze or cough, my stomach hurts so much. Awful. And my husband keeps making me laugh and then I cry.

I confess that when you are on pain meds, antibiotics and have had abdominal surgery, you have the hardest time trying to go (TMI much?!) and I may have sat on the toilet FOREVER yesterday morning. It was as bad as when I had my c-section.

I confess that I love reading Jessica's Bachelor recaps each week. It is like we are thinking the same thing or that we are actually watching it together. She has the BEST recaps that are going to have you laughing until it hurts. And this week it really did hurt. See above.

  1. I'm so sorry about the promotion. That just plain sucks. And the fact that that was how they chose between you is ridiculous. And he threatened to kill you? What?? How awful! I'd be pretty pissed too. I love the kimono you ordered. Great way to make yourself feel better. It's amazing what you use your abs for. I understand having a no laugh rule. Ha ha!

    1. Yes a few years back he was listening to myself and a team member talking about travel that we had coming up and I guess he said if I have to hear one more word from her mouth, I am going to kill her. Dead. Bam. And someone reported it and a whole investigation happened from it. I love the Kimono and needed something to lift me up. Plus it will be cute for spring and my upcoming vacation.

  2. Oh my goodness ! I l am feeling the same way about my job. No pay increase and I've been there almost a year. I bust my rear trying to be the model employee, never late, answers phone on time and more than anyone there and nothing !!!! It's beyond frustrating.

    1. Yes it is the worst. And I have been at my job for 9 1/2 years. Ugh. I hate saying that. I have gotten pay raises, but not the promotion I wanted, deserved and needed. It is super frustrating.

  3. I'm so, so sorry that you didn't get the promotion. That absolutely sucks. I can't believe he threatened to kill you & he's STILL employed there?! That's insane!

    I purchased my first piece from P&M & it should arrive today!

    1. They didn't have enough evidence or something and he got in trouble and on probation (I believe) and then it was swept under the rug. So ya I am still pretty upset about it.

      Oh what did you pick from P&M?

  15. I'm sorry you didn't get the promotion. However, everything happens for a reason and that means something better will come your way. Hope you feel better soon- The Bachelor recaps from Jess do make things that much better!

    1. Haha. I am so sorry that employment options right now suck all around. It seems like we are over qualified or something else. I hate it.
