Can I run away NOW?

I'm having one of those days. The kind of day where I should just go back to bed and start over tomorrow.



I can feel the anxiety about starting the new job building. I usually handle new things pretty well, it's the build up to actually getting started that is causing me to be anxious.

I have the corporate orientation tomorrow morning.











If that had been the only thing on my mind I probably would have been okay. Unfortunately, I have children. Musicman is fond of saying, "little kids little problems, big kids big problems."  Our kids are big, need I say more?

 My son is positive that at 16 he knows EVERYTHING

.

And then there is my daughter who isn't too happy with me right now. She suffers under the illusion that life should be easy.









Just for shits and giggles let's add hormones run amok to the mix.





Since running away doesn't seem to be a viable option, I think I might need some help with stress management.

  1. Aw yes, a spanking sounds like a great way to unwind. And then a glass of wine. Or a blow job. :)

    You'll do great tomorrow - if it is like all orientations, it will be boring after all the anxiety.

    1. I just really need to get started already with the job. Patience is not one of my strengths.

      I went for 2 of the 3 things you listed and added in a few others. I'm totally stress free :)

  3. I so feel your anxiety. Big kids big problems is so true. I hope that you get the stress management that you need. How weird that you discussed a job. My husband and I were just talking about a possible job opportunity and my anxiety went throught the roof. Good thing we were on the phone.
    Good luck tomorrow. You will do great

    1. Thanks Blondie, too much unknown right with both the kids and the job. Time will help with both situations, I'm just not very patient :) I got everything I needed and am ready to face the day.

  4. Well as soon as the job starts though, don't you think things will get better again?

  5. You will do great tomorrow. Those things are just to rev you up.
    Sorry about the kids. Teenagers are well, teenagers. Your daughter is an adult and on her own - she's going to have to learn to OWN it one of these days.
    I like the stress management picture. Actually, I look like that right about now - hubby read my vanilla post and decided it wasn't too hot after all. At last - yeah

    1. Glad to hear you got some fun time :) I did too! I feel sooooo much better!!

      Days like yesterday are the kind of days when I ask Musicman, "Tell me again why I wanted kids?" LOL.

  6. You'll be great tomorrow! And once that day is behind you you will feel much better. As for the kids, this too shall pass - you'll get that empty nest someday and you will LOVE it. I sure hope hope you get that stress relief you're looking for right now though!

    Hugs,
    PK

    1. Yes, getting through the first day is always the most nerve wracking. Once I'm there it will be okay, I'm sure :)

      Empty nest here I come, just 1 year and 4 months, not that I'm counting you understand, lol.

  7. I used to tell PK she would love the empty nest. Be patient. You will love it, too. Meanwhile, hope you get some good stress management.

  9. I will be thinking of you and sending good thoughts your way in the morning for your orientation. Also, refer back to Kitty's advice at the top--spanking and or wine:)

    1. Awww, thanks Susie. It can be frustrating sometimes to know exactly what the problem is and still have it bother me :(

      Guess that's what our guys are for, someone to lean on when standing up under the pressure seems to difficult :)

    1. We didn't break a paddle, only cause we didn't use one. I'm hoping to get the chance to post later all about it. I love my new flogger :)

  14. Funny thing about the "big kids" who think they know everything...they do come back at some time (future) and tell you how smart you were as parents! Florida Dom is right: an empty nest is quiet, peaceful, and no worries about making too much noise. ;) Stressful but will past all too soon.

    1. I'm still waiting for my kids to get to that point, lol. At this point it doesn't seem like the empty nest is close enough, but I'll keep on trying :)

  18. Best of luck with your new job, faerie. I hope it all goes wonderfully for you. And I hope you get through everything else as well. I took a stress management course, I found it quite helpful, actually.
