Normally I handle stress pretty well…. I’m not usually a big complainer and typically let things roll off my back…I really am an easy going kind of girl……but, I do have my limits! It seems that nothing is going according to plan so far this week. I am very close to an emotional meltdown.
First, I got a schedule change at school that I am not happy about. I was originally told a few weeks ago that I was going to have a Monday, Wednesday and every other Friday schedule in the upcoming module and therefore had my son schedule his classes around mine, since we are currently sharing a car…. Yesterday, I was told that I would be on a Tuesday, Thursday, every other Friday schedule so I went to the counselor and explained why I really needed the other schedule. Not only was I disappointed and upset, but, to top it all off, I was spoken to in a very condescending way. He just looked at me, shrugged, and basically told me that I am SOL (not his exact words, but, they might as well have been!) Yeah, I don’t handle being spoken to like that very well….I literally had to bite my tongue and I could feel my face turning red! As politely as I could, I asked him if he could please tell me why? His explanation was lame and very matter of fact, with absolutely no concern for me at all. He said that they can’t change my schedule because it would put me in classes that I have already had…. or something like that… Honestly, I’m not even sure exactly what he said because I was still fuming at his whole demeanor toward me. But, it can’t be changed, that, I got.
Anyway, now I have to scramble to find out if my son’s schedule can be changed. If not, then I need to figure out a carpool solution for one of us. It’s really not that big of a deal in and of itself, but, add that to the fact that I am running out of time to get things done before my son’s classes begin on June 4th (Monday!)…and the fact that we are supposed to move on Friday!
Which brings me to my next complaint….
Boxes are packed, movers are scheduled, utilities are scheduled to be turned on at the new place and cut off here…new furniture delivery is scheduled, etc…all for Friday. Moving is stressful enough as it is….but, now, we are being told that the people currently leasing the house, may not be out of there before Friday and no one can seem to get in touch with them! Seriously??! Grrrrrr! So, we are just supposed to wait around until they decide to get their stuff out of there? Not knowing if it will be Today, Tomorrow, Friday or later? Not knowing if we need to reschedule the movers or for when.. Tell our current landlord that we may or may not be leaving just yet? Tell my school and my fiance’s job that we may need another day off..? Meanwhile, living out of boxes and on take out food! Come on people! You signed an agreement to be out BEFORE June 1st…and you signed it over a month ago! It shouldn’t be this difficult!
It takes a LOT for my fiery redheaded temper to flare up and come out….but, if things continue like this….I will have no choice but to unleash that part of me!
Black Widow style!
I’m getting really tired of playing nice.
