Drama from the MAMA!

Today has been one of the worst days I have had over here...

What happened to compassion and understanding? Learning your employees?

Sometimes I HONESTLY want to pack up everything and get the HECK outta here! I have to deal with more then the AVERAGE person! On the DAILY. It gets hard when people do not think about cirumstances or situations! I never ask for "SPECIAL" treatment... But the fact that I am BASICALLY a SINGLE Mother in a Foreign Country... Understand that I have things to do! And I will RECORD MY time ACCORDINGLY!

And you are OFF!!!
-Drive Home
-Spend time with the kids...
-Work Out
-Sleep...
-Wake up 4-6 times in the day...
"I NEED WATER!!!"
-Check the time, email... Sleep
-Wake UP!!!
-Get Dressed
-I have to worry about the CRAZY drivers on the road, those two vehicular cameras on the way to work... (I have to know... Am I going to get a ticket because I am IN the picture? I know I wasn't speeding TWICE and the IDIOT got me flashed!!! How do they know which car it is???)
-Did you remember your badge? Whoa, Yes!
-Is the BUS going to leave you?
-Are you going to be late now?
-PUT ON YOUR REFLECTIVE VEST!!!
Then into the office...
-WOOOOOSA...
-Now, Put on your "I do not give a DARN about anything- EVERYTHING in my life is PEACHY- smile"
"Hi Amber", "Hey Amber", "Glad you are here Amber...."
Sit down at my desk...
EXHALE....
I am on TIME!
That is just 1/2 of it!!!
It is difficult to go into work and SPEND 12.45 hours with the same people...

I try to be the same EVERYDAY... and I am trying to be a better person. Most people who remember me generally only use one word.... "CRAZY"!!! I am really attempting... So when I can feel that someone is pissing me off, I try to stay calm... This TASK is difficult... VERY DIFFICULT...

"Think about the kids, Gustavo... The house... Calm down Amber"
I wish I was RICH and didn't have to work. I could just be get pretty... cook... shop... Do whatever I wanted! And MY FAMILY would be all that I had to WORRY about!...

Where is a Genie when you need one?

Depression becomes Me!

So- My heart is in my stomach… A piece of my heart has left. Mi Suave departed tonight. I had one of those "Lifetime Battered Women Moments" in the airport parking lot and then decided it was safe to drive home. (A success obviously) To try to ease my pain… I ate a whole box of Velveeta Shells and Cheese… (Ahhh Comfort Food)
















My Fave! But Gustavo's makes it better:(
It is hard to imagine how I am going to be able to function and juggle everything. He really took care of everything and spoiled us TOO much!

Then tried to watch a Jennifer Anniston movie, "The Switch" But never started it…
I got a message on Skype from My Moni Moni so I called her. She made me feel a bit better. Isn't it funny how your real friends just KNOW they are needed:)
I feel like going and dragging the kids from their beds to mine. Yeap- I am going to get them! 90 lbs each!!! I need them… Do not judge me! I am usually not an advocate of kids sleeping in bed with their parents… BUT… Once in a while is okay. Good Night from Kuwait
