13 things that went wrong this week..





1. I forgot to have the invitation for the closing mass of The Parish Anniversary signed by The Parish Priest.

2. I had to do them all over again after he signed them.

3. One of the guest calls me today during lunch to ask "what time is the mass, it wasn't in the letter" For fuck's sake, I forgot to write the &$?*$# time. Unbelievable! I forgot the fucking time? Can't believe it!

4. I spend the afternoon calling these 31 priests, 2 of them are very angry because of X events in the past and let me know how we suck. Whatever!!!

5. I schedule with the local television the taping of the Closing Mass for The Parish Anniversary. The girl in charge of the contracts emails me this morning "I got the OK to use X amount left from your budget, All is good, we will be there to film." Er I come home to an email from her where she "apologizes but DOESN'T have the OK so this isn't over, someone needs to okay this." Who? What the hell? Huh, I'm the one who deals with you, can't I OKAY IT? it is our money, for fucks's sake.

6. Annoying Liturgy Lady cussed at me Monday and I played her game and told her "go see TFB, as you can see I'm with visitors and what you ask is not doable", I once again played her game.

7. I met a cute guy who works on the cruise ship and forget to ask him his email addy.

8. I could have taken his picture.lol

9. On Monday night, I went to be early, the phone rang at 21h30, it was The Historian. I wasn't able to get back to sleep before 1 AM. Fuck, Fuck, Fuck!!!

10. I'm PMSing , I'm moody and cranky

11. Because of this crazy week, my final paper isn't done at all. I have 1 week left. This sucks!!!

12. When TFB and I looked tru the books to order pious and devotional items, I took the number but didn't write down the page. We had to do it twice.

13. I didn't write the prices correctly, when I called the lady (she was awesome BTW), I had to pick other items because those I had chosen were by item instead of by pack. (instead of 12 pins for 5$ it was 5$ a pin)


I need to be held, I need a hug. I want to cry, it's like nothing I do this week (except for the cruise ships) sucks. It's like I just shouldn't bother to do anything. Tell me we all have weeks like this. I'm sorry to be such a Debbie Downer.mrgreen

The thing is, God loves you and is right there to hold you "in the shadow of his wings." He hears your cries and is ready to comfort you. The Bible says he is very near the heart-scalded. (Well, maybe it doesn't use that word!)

No Nonsense girl said...

thanks for the comforting words Judy!

God bless you!!!

Jenny McB said...

Don't you just hate when you make more work for yourself? As a lady who was PMSing big time on Monday, I am with you sister. Went to print an access file of 90 pages for 35 books and realized midway through the job that the person used the wrong excel file...must be the moon affecting us.

Head on over to youtube and watch some debbie downer to cheer yourself up.

pussreboots said...

Ooof. We've all had weeks like that. Hopefully next week will be better for you. Happy TT and thanks for stopping by.

Lara Angelina said...

You've had a tough week and are feeling overwhelmed by everything! Having been there myself, I have two pieces of advice: 1 -- turn it all over to God, and 2 -- chocolate.
Best of luck and hang in there!

Lori said...

You poor baby...it will get better. Once Aunt Flo comes, this will be a thing of the past. You NEVER forget to get the hotties number or addy. If it was meant to be, he will be back. Happy TT anyway sunshine:)

No Nonsense girl said...

Yeah Jenny, it's not like I can blame someone for my mistakes. Many of them were my own darn fault. I'm soo sorry about the printing job, that susks big time. Poor you!!!

Thanks for the idea, I just went to watch some debbie downer video on youtube. This one almost made me piss myself LOL!!!

No Nonsense girl said...

Lara, you are wise girl!!!! Thanks for stopping by!!! :D

No Nonsense girl said...

Lori, you are right when AF comes, I always feel better. :)

The hottie will be back in town on friday, he works on the cruise ship lines that comes 3 times this fall here, he was here monday, should be back friday. He was a cutie, a nice fellow canadian working on this big ass cruise ship as a tour guide.

Thanks soo much for your sweet words Lori!!!! ***hugs***

Janet said...

I had to laugh at #3...

My mom and her mom before her were secretaries at their church...I broke the tradition!

Thanks for visiting :-)

The Gal Herself said...

#10 accounts for all the others, I think. I hope you see the Cute Guy again! And this time, take his picture with your cell phone.

No Nonsense girl said...

Janet, the thing is that I am not a secretary, I'm sometimes doing that job because of the Parish Anniversary commitee but I was hired to be in charge of the preservation, conservation and promotion of our heritage. I'm the girl who does the historical research but for *some reasons* I've been inm charge of the freaking paper work for the past, well 6 months. But only when it is in relation to the Parish Anniversary celebrations. Still, It's not *my job" but one has to do it. I'm also the one who has created an exposition that related the history of The Parish. :) Cool job!!!!

The girls at the office (2 secretaries) are sweet angels, wayy more patient that I could ever be!!! :P

No Nonsense girl said...

thanks the gal herself, if he's back, you can bet I'll take his picture!!! :)

and I felt soo dumb that I kept messing up these stupid invites!!! LOL it's actually making me feel soo much better to post about them :)

Clubbs said...

Oh no! So sorry to hear that you had a bad week! Hang in there. Of COURSE we all have weeks like that.

Damozel said...

I can see that being a Catholic Church worker isn't quite the transcendent experience one would expect. Just carry on with the good work! I'm glad PMS is all behind me.

Nicholas said...

Just take a deep breath and concentrate on those cruise ship thoughts! And accept a hug from all of us.

mar said...

Oh, poor you!! One of those weeks, huh? you have it behind you now so you can look forward to a much better week now!
Happy TT!

LOLOLOL!!! You're hilarious, No Nonsense Girl!! Even in your hour of &$?*$#, your sense of humour shines through. I hope the rest of your week goes better.

Xakara said...

I'm sorry about how rough your week's been. I can empathize.

Here's hoping your week turns around and the weekend is on the other side of the spectrum entirely.

I was away for the weekend, and I just got back Monday afternoon. I was tired, but that is really no excuse for the litany of things I forgot on Tuesday. I was actually embarrassed by the extent of my forgetfulness. I forgot to collect a reserved item of clothing from a shop. I forgot to buy my husband's newspaper. I forgot to collect tomatoes. I forgot my jacket at my grandparents' house. By the end of a very long day I was just ready to crawl under the duvet! You are not alone!!
Thankfully, I've got some great people around me, so I decided to do my TT about them this week. You can read it here. Would love to know what you thought of it!
Wishing you a happy TT and a better week next week!

No Nonsense girl said...

thanks fot the replies!

@Nicholas, your hug is accepted!!!

@Julia, I try to keep my sense of humour, that's who I am !!! LOL

@Damozel, you are right, there are a lot of moment where you wonder if you've stepped in a black HOLE but there's also amazing people. Not an easy job!!! :)

We all have weeks like this.

April Elizabeth said...

well, since i am in another country, i can't do any of the things you need. So let me make a little suggestion. Go to your super market, pick up a Mrs. Smiths cpple crumb pie (or similar), and cookie dough icecream, bring it home and place it in the oven (takes about 45 mintes). Please do this at night, so that while it is baking you can sneak out, let all the air out of the annoying liturgy lady's tires and get home in time for pie. Then proceed to eat the whole pie and carton of icecream. You will feel better, if not just a little stuffed, i promise.

No Nonsense girl said...

@April LOL, LOL, I'm such a good girls that I'll just fantasize of slashing her tires. :P I wouldn't do it because I would feel guilty... ::rolleyes:::

I'm gonna pick up an apple pie and ice cream for sure!!!! :)

Thanks for stopping by!!!

No Nonsense girl said...

@joyismy goal, thanks for the hugs ((((hugs back)))) you are right, the good thing is that they make good posts.

I'm sure he was catholic LOL!!!!

I'm feeling better, life goes on and I could see the cutie tomorrow if he comes back to the church while they all get off the cruis ship. ***drools***

Have a great day!!!!

eternal flux said...

The song you are thinking of is Poison. LOL! Yes, it was that easy. I don't care much for his work after the early 80's.

Anyway, have a great week!

No Nonsense girl said...

@eternal flux

I'm glad I "remembered" correctly!!!

When was Poison composed? after the early 80s?

Thanks for your visit, as always appreciated!!!

Rhonda said...

OMG! I was Catholic once, so I understand....HA! Anyway, hang in there...

P.S. thx 4 visiting my TT (http://rnning2wn2.blogspot.com)!!

Open Grove Claudia said...

I wish your experiences were the aberration and not the norm. Sadly.... I have a lot of friends who work in various capacities in the church and this is pretty normal.

You know, whenever 2 or more of you are together? God might be there but you can almost guarantee that someone is going to be a jerk.

Sorry.

Misa Gracie said...

Ouch - just be positive and keep in mind that next week will be better! We all have bad weeks - keeps us humble...

Keep you chin up!

No Nonsense girl said...

Thanks Claudia. Human nature is sometimes the reasons for amny problems eh? LOL!!!!

Misa gracie , thanks for your kind words!!!

Baba/night owl said...

Wow... hope your week will improve and be better... Thanks for visiting my place today. Baba

Kendra said...

wow, what a week! let's hope this next week is better for you!

happy TT and thanks for stopping by!

cajunvegan said...

The best part is that you get to move on.

Thanks for stopping by my simple truths.

Here's another one: Let it go.

No Nonsense girl said...

@cajunvegan You are right about Moving on. :)

FRIGGA said...

Do you just work there, or do you actually believe in what you're doing?

No Nonsense girl said...

@ FRIGGA, You may only have read the TT post but I am a convert. I was baptised in the catholic church in 2000 and having God in my life did change who I was. I love the church (altho I do not agree on every of it's stance). I love Jesus christ, I am a practicing catholic. One who feels free to say what I think and who believes love to other humans is what matters the most.

I have met AMAZING people, i post about them often.

But even if I'm a practicing catholic, I have friends who do not believe in God or any God and I love them and accept them for who they are. I don't have issues with homosexuals. I'm a very liberal catholic and proud to be one.

Why do you ask? :)

Christine said...

My whole world turns upside down when I'm PMS-ing; this too shall pass. Thanks for dropping by, XINE

Marilyn said...

I have weeks like this. Weeks where I just want to hide under the covers...

The sheer size of Catholic parishes still astounds me. Ours is itty bitty... but it's still the biggest church I've ever attended, both in terms of population and the building.

Having multiple priests mad at me would make me apoplectic. I sure hope things get better.

If comments are supposed to make sense and be cohesive... I shouldn't make them so late at night.... sigh... hang in there.

Hope next week will go better!!
