The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Today was one of those days that was jammed pack of emotions.

The Good:
I got to go see one Bobbie, a friend that I haven’t seen in…well, it’s been so long, I can’t honestly remember the last time we saw each other. I was able to see her beautiful baby boy for the first time. He looks just like his papa and he is sooooo cuddly. And I’m serious when I said I’d take Max and Daisy in the will (Max and Daisy are adorable doggies btw). May the government treat her well, and get that refund check to her in time, so that Bobbie and Jeremy can take that wonderful trip planned. I hope it’s not another couple of years before I see her again.

The Bad:
I had to be a part of the firing of an employee. These are never fun. It just makes the rest of the day awkward. I enjoyed being around this guy, we had a lot to talk about and had a lot of similarities. Unfortunately his work ethics were sub par. Yesterday he got caught going home, instead of working. It wouldn’t have been bad if it the first time, but…well, you probably get that it wasn’t. I wish him the best in life and hope that he finds a workplace that makes him happy.

The Ugly:
I got an email today saying this “Now that I’m married, I don’t need you in my life”. How am I supposed to take this?! This was a man that I have known for a few years now; someone that I took under my wing and took special care of. I was always there for his material needs such as groceries, a ride, I even paid a bill now and then and of course I was always there emotionally, always listening about his issues with life. I’m always good to be there for a friend in need, but when I saw this email, I feel used. I’ve been played!

Hopefully tomorrow will bring about a more somber day. A roller coaster of emotions like this can really exhaust a person!

The government was NOT good to us (see blog for details) BUT I'm so glad I got to see you! I'm also so glad the dog's didn't drive you up a wall while you were here.

I hope today was better for you!

What a crazy day! I'll always need you, but of course I'm already married. ; )
