When it rains....

it pours, and pours, and pours.

This week has definitely NOT been my week. Everything that could seem to go wrong, more than likely has. I know deep down though, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I just hope that end is somewhere close. It feels like this downhill slope is never ending. Monday night was spent at work until somewhere around 2am. NOT FUN. We spent the entire time cleaning the back kitchen. Tuesday morning I woke up in pain. Severe pain. My back was throbbing from all the bending and what not done the previous night before. Needless to say, I spent the day in the bed and taking large amounts of Tylenol. I had to work Tuesday night, so I toughed it out and made it through. Our Christmas dinner at school was on Wednesday, and I was making loaded mashed potatoes. I realized when I got off work, after 11pm mind you, that I had no cheese. And I needed cheese to make the potatoes. So I had to trek back to the store after work. Again, NOT FUN. Wednesday was actually an ok day. I was still sore but I got all the goodies made that I needed to. And there were none left, so I suppose that's a good thing :-) Thursday I was just not feeling good. A few people noticed but I tried to brush it off. I got through school and clients ok so I was thankful for that. I went into work at 4 to chaos. People were calling out of their shifts and those on the schedule were moving to other parts of the restaurant . It was crazy. I was supposed to train a new girl, and she was late and I didn't know I was supposed to train her. It was nice to say the least :-) I still wasn't feeling myself when I got off work. And now, I know why. I woke up this morning not feeling too hot. NOT FUN. So here I am, laying in bed for the 2nd time this week and missing another day of school. And it stinks.

I just have faith that things will get better. Tonight we are all going out for Sam's birthday, so I'm resting up for that. I can't miss my sister's birthday! I'm just holding on for next week when I get to go to my parent's and grandparent's houses for Christmas. I can't wait and I'm so looking forward to it. I miss them all so much!
