Is anyone as shocked as me that September is officially over? It really does feel like the month just started, and I was bemoaning the fact that our schedules were jam-packed. Our schedules are still jam-packed, so I guess that explains why I feel I missed an entire month of my life. Time really needs to start slowing down.
Work this week was rough. It was one of those weeks with nothing but over-reactions on the part of co-workers and e-mails either telling me how to do my job or blame me for something that is not my fault. It was long, exhausting, and horribly uninspiring. We are all waiting to hear about our offers – day 6 out of 20 – so everyone is really on edge. As another co-worker said, the situation around the office could always get worse, but it would take some effort to make it so.
Did you see that Inside Michelle’s Brain made another appearance? I discussed the idea of professionalism and reviews. I would love to get your thoughts on them!
I also reviewed the following:
- Little Black Dress by Susan McBride
- The Year Everything Changed by Georgia Backoven
- The Grief of Others by Leah Hager Cohen
- A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway
Lately, I'm thinking putting on pants suck any day these days. I made my soup and it was delicious!! It's such a great feeling having a pantry full of yummy potential.
Thanks, Jodie! It's been a rough month, and it looks like it's going to remain that way for the rest of the year. I think I just need to get thicker skin.
Ah yes, putting on pants, or even showering can suck some days 🙂
I've been wanting to make Lentil soup too!
Sorry things ahve been such a suck fest recently. E-mails telling you to do your job? Rlly? Can you say aaaarogaaaant? Good luck taking on this next month.
Thanks, Natasha! I'll be curious to hear your thoughts!
Sorry to hear that your work week went so badly. I'll be sure to check out your last post.
My recent post Sunday Salon: October Reading
I didn't get most of what I wanted to finish done either. It seems to be the way things are going this year.
Real pants on weekends do suck, but I refuse to wear sweatpants or yoga pants to the store. I try to have some pride in my appearance when out in public. But I switched to yoga pants immediately upon getting home; I didn't even wait to put the food away first.
Speak from the heart is more professional than anything else we can do as bloggers, in my opinion.
LOL! Pants on a Sunday? What is up with that? I have a fridge, freezer, and pantry full of food now though so it is all good. You are absolutely right on having difficulties getting up for work. Mental health days never looked so good.
Work is definitely preventing ANY fun these days. Hopefully, it will get better soon enough. The pace at which the year is moving is definitely scary. I don't like it.
September went by really fast! I didn't get most of what I wanted to get done, done.

I hate pants…well, unless they're sweatpants which is what I'm wearing now. Not real pants, though. They suck.
Anyway, I did see your sharing of what was inside your brain, but as I don't do a lot (or hardly any) reviews, I didn't have much to say about it. However, I will say I agree. Some bloggers need to learn how to write negative reviews. Sometimes you don't like a book you get for review; be honest…you don't have to be brutal…just tell the truth, speak from the heart.
My recent post Breaking with the past last month; bad, this month
Oh no, not pants! Sounds like you're really in for a long haul of a tough time at work. Makes it so hard to get up every morning, I'm sure.
Work always gets in the way of fun, I tell ya. I'm ready for cooler weather, but cannot believe how the years fly by. Sorta scary. A Moveable Feast is one of my favorites!
