my pessimistic side assumes I've done something wrong and am essentially unlikeable and stupid and deserve to be ignored. then the logical side of me realizes I'm smart and know my sh!t and these b!tches should be thanking me for my input, not ignoring me.
it makes me feel rubbish and like I should resign my position.
I hate these committees. you get a couple of boorish stalwarts at the top of the ladder who just roadblock others. they claim to want volunteers but what I really think they want is minions who blithely agree to do whatever they're asked. I'm providing great feedback and suggestions and this is my area of professional expertise so I know my sh!t. yet I get ignored? multiple times?
I'll leave it til the next meeting then put them on the spot in front of everyone. they can try ignoring me again then
You are a likeable person and I've never met you. You come across as very intelligent and I'm sure you are great at what you do.
Ohhh, timing is off! We appointed a treasurer not so long ago, all going well with him, we could have benefitted from having someone like you on board! Someone who knows their sh1t and has some flare about them!
aw thanks ladies. you've both made me smile.
accountants with a bit of flare and personality are a rare breed. you'd think my ideas would be welcomed, not ignored.
oh well, roadblocks are made for being run down right?

Torn. Dd2 is due for a nap at 850. I usually drop dd1 off at daycare today around 930. Do I drop her off an hour early or an hour late? I would love to drop her off early and get some much needed sleep but she hates going, it'll be a battle to get her ready and she's a little snotty still today. Gah!
Shattered. I think I've had 3 hours sleep... Discovered DS is a super cuddly sleeper though. We are all sick
