MIA

So, this is usually used for missing in action, but in this case it could stand for Me In Action. SO BUSY!! I am so swamped at work that I am working at home at night and I still can't get caught up. I am about a week behind and no matter what I do, I just can't get caught up. It is killing me, I am drowning in busy work. I hate it. It is times like these when I remember just how much I hate my job. I think the only reason I am happy most other days is that I am not busy and free to do as I please.
Plus, I have been sick since Halloween. It seems that it is on it's way out, thank goodness but with the illness in full swing last week, it was very hard to get anything done.
That's where I am, that's what I am doing. And I am also working on my swap cards which need to be in the mail by Saturday....Yikes!!
With this, the eve of Thankful Day, I only saw the very end of LOST (because I am so busy) but it was touching to see what everyone "had" and made me thankful, which is hard to remember when you are stressed.

  • Thankful that I am healthy.
  • Thankful that I have a kid that loves me and I get to love.
  • Thankful that we aren't livin' on the streets (yet).
  • Thankful that I have a job, no matter how much I hate it right now.
  • Thankful that I still have a month til Xmas.
  • Thankful that I got to do something scrappy today by making my swap cards.
  • Thankful that I have tonight to myself and it is quiet.
  • Thankful that someone makes me feel special every day.
  • Thankful that that same person makes me feel beautiful.
  • Thankful that I will get to see my aunt tomorrow, I have been meaning to visit.
  • Thankful that there was a little snow this morning.
  • Thankful that I don't have to go into work on Friday. (may still have to work though)
  • Thankful that I have so much to be thankful for.
I saw the Eurythmics on Leno the other night and I have always loved Annie's voice. There was something about the song she was singing that just touched me, spoke to me. It was a song I needed to hear and I need to listen to again. Amazing.

I've Got a Life
I've got a life
though it refuses to shine
I've got a life it aint over
I've got a way
it's the only things thats mine
all I'm asking for is tenderness
a little tenderness

ooo it's a cruel place
you never asked to be here
nobody cares and no ones gonna help you now
it's dog eat dog the human race
the only thing they'll do is hate you

such a crime to be unkind
turn your cheek pretend your blind

I've got a life
though it refuses to shine
I've got a life it aint over
it aint over
I've got a way
it's the only thing that's mine
all im asking for is tenderness
tenderness

I've got a life
though it refuses to shine
I've got a life it aint over
it aint over
I've got a way
it's the only thing that's mine
all im asking for is tenderness

be strong now baby
gotta be strong now baby
gotta be strong!
