Wipeout Wednesday

Hello friends!

I think today is the most difficult Wednesday I’ve had all year.

You know I’m a therapist right? So it seems like today 75% of my clients were in distress, which means a high level of distress for me. If a couple of my clients are distressed, I can usually manage without difficulty. When three or four of my clients are in distress, it’s a little overwhelming but wow today everything was going wrong and it was difficult!

I imagined it would be more helpful if I walked around with a fire extinguisher and Whoosh! Every time someone started to talk to me…Tracie…Whoosh! Tracie can you Whoosh!  Tracie I ….Whoosh! All the fires out, I’ve put out all the fires and no one is stressed…everyone is cooled down 😉 Firefighting 101 right? Put out all fires…maybe I need several extinguishers?

Regardless, I still like to dress up fun even if I think I’m going bonkers! Here is my cute outfit today (found this darling skirt and sweatshirt at H&M) ; I took my selfies before work when it’s 30 degrees outside and my toes start getting numb (I got a pedicure last night and wore sandals cause my toe nails are super cute) and my fingers are cold but after work it’s 48 degrees, the sun is shining and I can think about something else for a few minutes. (Someone did point out today that my laptop matches my clothes…SCORE!)

and yes my screen saver is a black Camaro

Happy New Year -be prepared to battle January

Happy 2018! Wow the years seem to fly by don’t they? I remember being young (high school) and always wished time to go by faster…now that I’m not in high school, time seems to go by too fast.

Take for instance the holidays…I just love the holidays (and time off work) and here we are in January….not my favorite month in my whole life! LOL EVER NEVER has January been my favorite month. Granted I live in a typically cold climate in January ALL MY LIFE, so maybe that has something to do with it. Maybe if I lived in Florida I would be more friendly with January and not give it so much CRAP! Bahahaha!

This January I’m going on vacation in a couple weeks, so I hope to cut these January blues off at the knees! Haha…I guess that sounds a little violent? It’s a battle people, one I’m going to win!

I worked out this morning which was a total win cause I didn’t want to get up and then to show my determination…I’m in battle fatigues….(not to offend veterans) I’m battling my frustration with it being January and the January blahs….I’m wearing my camo jacket by OldNavy, studded jeans by Gap, and sweater by H&M….this way I figure I’m prepared to fight hard! I always normally have a cheery attitude but if I don’t some days, I need to prepare and be strong and that way I weather the hard times.

Check out my battle garb below! And for anyone else feeling the same as we head into January…you are not alone!!

At work not working? Ideal Life

So I’m at work but it’s that weird time of year …I saw a post on IG that perfectly explained my dilemma. I took days off for Christmas and have New Years Day off, but here I am at work, met with clients in the early morning (8am- so I left my house at 7am :/ ) and now have a break until 3pm…essentially I am getting paid at work to write on my blog! Score! LOL (Spencer if you’re reading this, I already shared with Ines and we are cool)

So I went and took pictures of my cute outfit today (sweater and jacket by Express, jeans by JCPenney, and boots by Shoedazzle) and maybe I’ll make a Target run later. Target is the bomb if you don’t know already. I’ve got in deep trouble there before and probably will again.

If I’m at work not working, should I be at work getting paid? Here is the dilemma…when I first started my blog (remember I told my boss I wouldn’t blog while at work but he said it was ok if I used my work comp to blog, just that I couldn’t watch porn….that was funny). So here I am blogging at work…

Granted all my documentation is done, emails answered and such…I’m just patiently waiting for a client to show up (in two hours)…haha so here I am blogging while at work, not working, but getting paid. It sounds like a great gig right?? LOL Maybe I shouldn’t look this “gift horse in the mouth”? Such an odd expression, who gets a gift horse? I would like a horse gifted to me….such are my thoughts at work but not working 🙂 It’s almost like an early Friday present LOL! AND WHO DOESN’T JUST LOVE FRIDAYS??
