I Want To Be Sedated

This is just a quick post to say I'm trying to get back to post something about the house but I'm so scatterbrained right now I can't get my thoughts together. Since, being transferred to this new job, some new, ever increasingly bizarre happenings in regard to my self have got me kinda wigging out right now. I'm even having trouble writing this short post.
Molly over at CrossRoads has given me a nice award but I can't get Blogger to download it. So, that's why I haven't carried that on yet Molly. Maybe I can get it to work tomorrow.
Work, on it's own, is going well. After working on the stairwell for a couple of days, I got the owner and architect to approve it. Previously they would not pass it due to bad craftsmanship on the subcontractor's part. But now my bosses are standing over me wanting to know the second I'm going to be finished. I know the minute I lay my tools down I'm going to be shipped out somewhere else.
I have been waiting for almost a month and a half now to be paid for the side job I did at that little temple in Birmingham but the city screwed up and mailed my check to the wrong address. After wrangling around for weeks over that, and the city threatening to make me wait months to be paid, they called this morning to tell me they were going to cut me a new check and cancel the old one. Everyone assumed the old one was lost in the mail or something. So, about 2 hours after speaking with them this morning (and after the check was canceled) Allen called to let me know the check had shown up in the mail today.
I'm going to go to bed now. None of this is really bad just, I don't know, mind numbing...

Hope you had sufficient chill time and things have straightened out.

Hey ER, did you right click on the award icon on my page and choose "save picture as"? That way you can save on your PC then upload as a picture wherever you want on your blog.

I detest lost mail, worse if it is a payment! Glad to hear they have it sorted now.

Hey FC! Oh, I'm not sure now if things are ever going to straighten out. I might tell ya'll about it later. the money situation is fixed though.

Hey Molly! Yeah, I did and my pc saved it but Blogger acted like it couldn't load it on my blog. I'm sure it will work later. I am just so beside myself right now I just haven't had the wherewithall to fool with it.
the mail thing is so weird; we rarely ever have a problem with mail but it is fixed and I will pick up my check tomorrow.

Did you ever read a childrens book called "The Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day"? I recall it from when I was a little kid, and and the title resonates with me often. Sometimes life just throws it at ya. And sometimes the best thing to do is give in a bit. Take a day with a warm comforter and a good book.

I hope it all passes for you!

Hey Maya! I don't think I have ever heard of that book; sounds like a good one though!
Some stuff that is happening is just plain weird; i don't know, it will pass eventually.
