We had a massive storm about 5:30 this morning. Big-ass lightening and thunder 1/2 hour before the alarm went off – no more sleeping for this girl! I swear I jumped a foot off the bed once or twice. A pillow over the head didn’t help. I know this because I tried it.
It rained, then sunned, then rained, then sunned all day long. Only in the spring. I LOVE spring primarily because there was no snow involved.
I’m trying to schedule a long walk this afternoon and I’m dodging the big black clouds and the drops. My 6.5km yesterday felt really good – a first for the year. And I have a lot of lost time to make up for. 🙂
On other notes, I went to work really cranky this morning. It’s PMS, you know. And then Loser Coworker showed up in a new car. Seems he negotiated himself a gigantico car allowance. I pretended to be happy for him but secretly I was resenting my 15 year old Honda. Yes, I know it’s sensible to drive a car that’s paid for, and dependable, and economical. But sometimes……
It was one of those days when this kind of nonsense got on my nerves and I did what I hope not to do too often – whine. I was an expert at whining today. Academy award caliber.
Olympic medal quality.
In my next life I’m going to be loud, demanding, princess-y, and high-maintenance. Seriously.
How does one learn to negotiate these kinds of perks? How do I learn to put my needs and expectations forward when asking for what I want? I need to learn this lesson now because I’m in the middle of a new job search.
And I need to learn it FAST!
