Chatter Post, Friday May Week 2!  
Hello there, mes amis!

The week one poll will be open until 9pm EST tonight!

Contestants and Just for Fun writers, your week two topic is here!

Editors, your awaits you!

I've had a rotten week at work, which thankfully is over, but it's hard to shake what has happened.

The short version is that my new boss initially laid the blame for two significant oversights on me, until I explained the situation to her. On top of that, after doing my job reliably for four years, she has come along and told me there will be changes to the requirements of our administration assistants that she doesn't think I will be able to do. When I asked her what these changes would be, she told me this hadn't been decided yet. I explained to her that I am the best person to judge what my capabilities are, and that I would tell her if there was anything I thought I would struggle with based on the fact that I can't see.

All this has left me feeling quite low, and I have come home in tears a couple times this week.

It is the weekend now, though, and I'm determined to do things to make me feel good.

I'm going to make pea and ham soup for the first time, which I'm really looking forward to. Filling my home with delicious aromas always lifts my spirits.

I'm going to give my dog a much needed bath, then sit out in the sun while we have it and give her a good grooming while reading an audio book.

Then of course there is the housework, but even that I'm not going to mind as I need the distraction of hard work, and the satisfaction of having a clean house.

What do you do when you need cheering up?

I listen to music, or read something that will distract me. I try to get outside if I can and put it in perspective. If I can, I'll talk to someone about it. If it's at a bad time to talk to people (ie., late at night), I'll write about it -- just "stream of consciousness" stuff to get it out on the page.

I also write about how I'm feeling, which I did this time to help get it off my chest. I also ramble a lot when I need to vent in my writing, which may not have made any sense to anyone else, but it allowed me to put it all out there.
