a little personal

I don't really like to get too personal here ... but I'm going to today.

Do you ever have the worst day? Yesterday was the pits. It started out with me opening the mail the night before and getting our new insurance cards (yay!), but my little guy Wyatt was listed on the card. It's been a while since I had a good cry about things ... so I let myself. And Lucas let me (he's the best).

Then I had to drive to MONA. Don't get me wrong, I love the Impact Ranch, and I love Mona, but I don't love driving to Mona. Especially in the morning, to work. I used to work there, but it was when Lucas was working there. I'm just filling in for a cute gal that had a baby for a few weeks, so it's not bad. I just didn't feel like doing it. On the way down I thought I'd call Humana and get this insurance business straightened out. They had me explain my situation to 3 different people in 3 different departments, only to be told that my employer's HR department would have to call ... awesome.

So I got to the Ranch, did my thing for a couple of hours, realized that I need to write like 9 court reports for Ranch kids in the next few weeks, and drove back to Provo for more work. I emailed our HR lady (which really set my already crazy emotional levels off), then sat there at my desk for a good 30 minutes. I shuffled some papers around, checked my email a bunch, but didn't really check off anything on my list. So I left. I just went home.

Luckily when I got home, Brok was there to welcome me. I know it sounds crazy, but I think he gets it when I'm sad or upset. He didn't bug me to go to the park or anything, he just sat by me and watched Miami Ink until I fell asleep on the couch (I know, lazy). Don't worry, I slept for 2 hours. I can.

Then the other job. Usually I just love working in dispatch, but occasionally there's a shift I just dread. Some people are just hard to work with. This shift sucked. On the plus side, I did get a bunch of work done. So that's nice.

Luckily I have Lucas at home, waiting to put lotion on my sunburned back and kiss me goodnight. He is the best man.

I know I'm a baby, this day doesn't sound nearly as awful as it is in my head. And don't worry, today has been much better.
