A Whiny Wednesday

Yesterday I casually mentioned that, since every other day of the week has a theme in the blogging world, there should be a Moaning Monday. You know, a day to get the angst out. Of course this is the embellished version of what I actually said, but that's what I meant.


I actually Googled the term to see if there was a Moaning Monday already in place, a bandwagon I could hop on, and determined 1) there does not seem to be an "official" one in the blogging world and 2) the Online version of the Cleveland Plain Dealer actually has a feature called Monday Moaning. But that doesn't really help me. And then my misery caught up with me and I decided that I couldn't wait until Monday to say this:


I try to keep this blog pretty positive. I grumble occasionally, and definitely bemoan the aging of my children, but I don't fuss too much about things. Even though I am by nature a venter, I don't really use this for that. It's a happy mommy blog/journal and I like it that way.

But lately work has been killing me. I'm underwater without scuba gear so to speak. Sinking slowly to the bottom and can't get my weight belt unbuckled. A few more things that would tie in with the metaphor if I had enough brain cells left to think of them. So I'm feeling the stress and I feel like sharing it. So, yeah.

I hear ya! I LOVE venting on the blog - it's really the only place I can be totally inapproriate. Kind of hard to do at work or around the kids....

Thanks for stopping by!

Ack. That was you screaming down the street yesterday? I hear you, hon. Sometimes, the monotony of my own job makes me twitchy, but then I remember that things could be a whole lot worse and the fact that I have a job right now is a good thing. Keep your head up and you're right. This is definitely not you! Maybe you and I should get out for some coffee soon. I'll be a shoulder for you!

I hear you, loud and clear!! I think a lot of us are going through this - as companies are trying to make do with fewer people, the ones left to do the work are finding themselves with the workloads of two and three people!! I feel the same way at my job.
