Angry on a whim

I am so glad the holidays are over. Personally, I think it's become too much of a commercial holiday.

I don't come from a wealthy family who gave me what I wanted when I wanted it. Sure it pissed me off as a kid, but years later as a wife and mother of 2 children I am thankful.

What I got was knowing how important family time is. Toys get broken, memories get locked up in your heart and are held for as long as the memory holds up!

Our big holiday dinner is on Christmas Eve. My hubby started the tradition of Prime Rib and baby we're sticking with it.On Christmas the kids open their presents and then we have another nice meal.

This Christmas I was quite particular with presents. You know the art of stretching a dollar.

This was also the first Christmas the hubby and I didn't exchange presents. Someday we're gonna make up the holiday that we missed. It's not because of mismanagement. It's because bad things happen to good people.

I can't even begin to explain. The thought of someone having no respect for other human beings is beyond me. Many good people who care about a particular job and give it their all are treated like complete shit.

Someday to this person, I hope everything you worked for goes down the tubes. Your arrogance and ignorance is nothing but hateful and hurtful. Not only to your employees, but also their families.

You will not break us. You're making our lives a living hell emotionally and physically. I cannot wait until someone sees what a prize and a hard working, caring man I have. He would make any company proud. I know I am.

So fuck you to the man I can't say. I use the word man loosely.

  1. Wow, Annie! I like this.

    God I love prime rib. It was always my favorite. When My parents would ask me what I wanted for my birthday dinner there was always one answer.

    We did the same this year. I got my wife one gift. She got me too many. I wonder if that means something. The obvious is that I know how much money I could afford to better half may not know that fact as well as I do. The kids did fine.

    I have the opposite issue with my boss. He's super good about family. He once told me to take every single minute I needed when we had a terrible family emergency. I was gone 6 weeks and he never even asked me to get back other than to ask how we were doing.

    My problem is I get bored with the gig. I love my work but when things slow down I find my self less caring. And I have the fortunate position to make my own hours. It is hard for me not to take a half hour here and there. I think I'd do a lot for my boss. He gets it and is a good person.

    So I feel for you. You are a sweet woman who loves this man and it shows. I am envious. Fuck his boss and the horse he rides in on.

    Keep on truckin', honey. And keep up the blogging.
