Scorching Days and Mondays always get me Down

Today is the first day of three or four consecutive 100 degree days for Portland. It has already been in the 90s so we've already spent the days showering, moving fans with us wherever we go and drinking more lemonade and ice tea than any human should. But it's going to get hotter anyway . . . and my husband will smile through every degree. The hotter it gets, the happier he is. I guess SOMEONE should enjoy it, right?

PLUS my period (if this is too personal, just skip ahead peeps) is three weeks late and keeps starting and stopping just enough to keep me in a permanent case of PMS. Yes, it's crappy for my family but you know what, it's not much fun for me either.

Then this morning, I get up to find out I am fired from one of the best long term gigs I have ever gotten. No warning, no feedback. Just "you aren't up to our standards" goodbye. I hate to sound smug, but I've been in this business for 25 years and I AM good. Couldn't they work with me if what I did wasn't quite right? Point out what they would like me to change? Guess not, eh? When my work load is already so low, this is just a huge blow for me and I want to lie down on the floor and throw a tantrum instead of shoulder it and keep going.

So that old Carpenters song is running through my head as tears are running down my cheeks and I gotta admit, today is not one of my favorite days.

In deference to your readers, I will refrain from using profanity.

But I'm sure you can imagine the stream of invective that pours from me at the news of your firing from your long term relationship with that company.

As always, if you'd like to pass on an email address, I have a few things I'd like to tell them.

So sorry.
:(

Thank you, Ami. I am open to any and all righteous indignation to help temper my emotions. I have already gone through shock, denial, grief and now I'm fully into anger. Eventually I will reach acceptance but it won't be any time soon.

Tami,
So sorry to hear about the job. But what I really want to know is why men seem to enjoy the heat while us women only suffer in it. And these darn hot flashes aren't helping one d*mn bit. These 100 degree temps. should stay in the midwest where they belong don't ya think?

So sorry that you lost that company. And you thought they were a good company, but the way they treated you shows they are NOT!! A good company would have given reasons. I think that they just needed to let you go because of finances and didn't want to handle that discussion, so just cut you off.

Again, I am so sorry. They are rotten, rotten people!!!

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info.
