Rain, Rain, Go Away!

I awoke to a dreary, rainy day which I know all of us on the east coast are sharing right now. It certainly does make the day-to-day commuting and working less fun!

When I got into work, I was greeted by a voicemail from the west coast about a mistake I made, and it threw me into a tailspin. I think it can be smoothed over, but in my work, missing even a minor detail is trouble, and this was a fairly large detail. I am honestly shaking as I write this. I know I can be a bit of a perfectionist, but it cuts me to the core to think that others may be doubting my competency because of a stupid mistake. Oh dear.

Deep breath. I need to, as my father would say, "shake it off" and move on.
Have a good day and stay dry!

I hate that. Little mistakes can ruin an otherwise perfect day. Hope you brought your galoshes! (and hope your day gets better!!!)

Little mistakes are wretched! Everybody makes them though, so don't sweat it (as my Dad would say)!

Mistakes at work stink so much worse than mistakes at home, don't they? Easy for me to say, but try and remember you are human and EVERYONE makes them. You are entitled once in a while too!

My only saving grace is my cozy raincoat that I have been longing to wear all long hot summer. But the rain better skit before the long weekend!

Darling, don't you worry! Get yourself something delish for lunch and dream about being home, watching TBH on the DVD.
