Hump Day Confessions

You know, I had a fabulous, stress free weekend (which I will share shortly).  I got some great news, and then all was right in the world.  Until Tuesday hit...  So, I thought it was a perfect week to link up for Hump Day confessions with Vodka and Soda.  Won't you play along?

I confess that even though I didn't want to move to Korea in the first place, I am just ready to move, already.  I hate the "hurry up and wait" game that the military likes to play with us.  Report in May?  No problem!  Just in July?!  We have a slight problem.

I confess that I think it's ridiculous that screaming babies (I know it's not their fault, but still) can take a plane anywhere in the world, but my dogs are forbidden to fly from 15 May to 15 September.  See why a July report date is a problem?  Even private pet transporters abide by that airline rule.  I know it is for their safety, but why can't I get a seat for my little guys, or at least a temperature controlled part of the aircraft.

I confess that I am tired of getting a ton of extra duties at work, and being told I should be thankful because it means I'm good at my job.  No, I'd be thankful for some kind of monetary or time-off bonus for doing other people's work for them.  That is what I would appreciate.  I don't mind being a team player, but don't piss in my water and tell me it's lemonade, you know?

I confess that I have been a really negative person lately, and I hate that.  I don't want to be a Debby Downer all the time.  Someone at work said I should try to be a "Polly Positive" instead.  Sounds nice, but I sort of wanted to punch her.  Guess I'm still a Nancy...

I confess that this link-up has actually been really refreshing.  Maybe I'll make it a regular thing from now on.

sometimes it's ok to be negative; we all can't be chipper and uppity all the can get hard and we react accordingly. so go ahead and punch that bitch in the face :D

thanks for linking up!

All of this is new to me! I feel so out of the loop! Ahhh, the military orders game. LOOOVE IT! That's what happened to us when we sold our house and had to rent an apt for 4 months until they got our next assignment cleared up. And I'm sorry about the pups - that blows totally. Pups are our children for crying out loud!!
