I Need A Vacation!!!

There is one thing that I know for sure... I need a vacation and BAD! Work has been so super stressful that I can hardly breathe. All I dream about lately is laying out on a nice white sandy beach, getting the most kickin' tan in the world and sipping on a margarita. Work has kind of sucked some major ones lately. I pretty well botched the billing for a huge contract and because of my mistakes... we are now getting audited. yay!

Today was actually better than it has been the last week and a half or so. I can barely see the light at the end of the tunnel, but a glimmer of light is better than no light at all, right? Hopefully by Monday the light will get brighter and brighter... I am crossing my fingeeees!

I feel so completely overwhelmed lately. I work all the time and then when I get home I see my messy house and I get overwhelmed at that... then I step on the scale and, oh my goodness... I am sooooo overwhelmed I can hardly even stand it. So, all I can do is sit. I just sit and wait for it to be time to go to bed, then what do I do...? I go to bed.

How do I make the madness stop? I guess I am being harder on myself than is necessary, I did go running this week, which is a huge accomplishment for me and we are planning on hiking Mt. Olympus tomorrow (if the weather holds up). So, it isn't as though I have been a complete waste of skin this week. I have determined something about the way I feel about running. I love the idea of running. I love the way I feel after I am finished running... but during, I would rather eat the end of a 12 gauge! I can't stand the during part! I huff and puff and sweat like no other. I sweat worse than a man.

It's a fact.

When I go to the gym and am on the treadmill for 10 minutes, I am dripping with beads of sweat and Mike looks like he just barely got on. Maybe thats why I hate the during part. If I didn't look like a stinky sweaty man while I ran, I might actually enjoy it a bit more. No, that wouldn't change my mind.

But, the sad part about running is that it is the only way that I will be able to look super fantastic in a bathing suit when we go on our vacation. I am not sure where we are going to go or how soon it will be, but it will be this year and... it will be somewhere with white sandy beaches and maragitas!

Nothing is worse than a stressful job, in my opinion...You are amazing to keep holding on like you do. I couldn't do it. I never have! I am not strong enough to hold a full time job. I really hope that you can get a chance to get away for awhile...

I love your blog, Sarah! I read it whenever I finally get around to getting online, which isn't much these days. But don't stop, even though you think nobody is reading, cuz we are! I can't wait till our get together in August!

You are such a cutie pettutie!
I am sorry that your company is getting audited and you are in the hot spot. -It will all get better. Don't forget that The T loves you and thinks you kick ass.

Sorry you are filling like poo warmed over. A big hug from me for all the fabulous clothes! I look marvelous if I do say so myself. Have you two ever taken a cruise?

Saroo said...

Nope, never.

Mike understands my need to get away... He has said that we need to just go on a vacation. I wanna just go somewhere, even Mexico would do. I need to get away and unwind. I am going to Vegas this weekend, but it's so whirl wind that I don't think it counts. But, I will be out of the valley and that's a start, right?

Saroo said...

Oh... I am glad that you look super fantastic in my old clothes... glad I can help. btw... do you look like me today or have you added your own touches to make the clothes your own?

tracifree said...

I don't have anything of yours on today. But, everything I'm wearing was free from someone else. I think tomorrow I'll dress like Sarah. No really, there are some super cute clothes to wear in the heat of New Orleans. Yeah! We both get out of town this weekend. Did you think of anything you wanted? Like some hurricane rubble?

Saroo said...

Would you seriously lug hurricane rubble across the country just for me?

I was actually thinking about this and thought, if you wanted you could bring me something that I can hang on my rear view mirror. Something kindof unique that Mike can take down if he wants when he drives the truck.

How does that sound?
