I'm not eating over this
Tuesday, April 24, 2012
I just got a call from a fellow club member who has been building a grievance list for and about me and she chose tonight to call and deliver it. She feels stupid and she thinks I treat her like she is. Duh! She has her faults, but one of them is not being stupid. Her chief drawback is that she is hyper-active and makes me nervous, so sometimes in the middle of a meeting I have to stop and ask her to please sit down (Because she is distracting me so badly); well maybe I don't always say Please! So I explained to her how busy I've been being the chairperson for our Chinese auction that is open to the public only two days from now, plus the loss of my mother where I had to travel upstate for her funeral, and a week later I injured my leg and had to go to the ER, with tons of insurance forms to fill out afterwards, plus all the forms from my fender bender accident on Christmas day. So why didn't I take the time to soothe her feelings, and pay special attention to her like I seem to do to the other ladies at our table???? And why am I giving so much credit to the ex-president of our organization WHOM SHE HATES, but who stepped in and did an amazing job for me when I couldn't get around because of my stitched-up leg?
So I stayed calm and because this woman was sent by the old devil himself, to try to upset me and cause gastric woes before bedtime, and cause me to overeat with a weigh-in looming tomorrow, I chose to let it all out on a Spark blog instead of shoving food down my throat. Not the first time a blog has saved me, and it won't be the last I'm sure. So, Spark friends, thank you for being there for me, wherever you are tonight. I appreciate you so much and it's so nice to have people to "talk to" that are removed from the problem, yet close enough to care. "So near and yet so far" is an old saying that comes to mind...I almost want to sing it!!
