AKA, proof read, proof read, proof read!
I tell you, I am living on the edge these days!

In my job, I review budgets and plans for state and federally funded human services.  Sometimes it is necessary to deny requests for funds and I have to “comment” siting policies and how I apply that policy to the request.  Some requests require identical  comment. 

One day, I was reviewing a plan, and thought I had copied a comment for pasting into the next line, which needed  duplicate “comment” .

Earlier in the day, I had been incredibly overwhelmed and in attempt to find humor and pull myself out of the feeling I composed a silly little e-mail and sent to friends, who of course responded with encouranging thoughts.

The e-mail said:  ”Shhhhhhhhhhh….. don’t tell anyone, I have TOTALLY LOST IT…. I am sitting under my desk mumbling and drumming my fingers against my lips going b---b—b—b-b-b-b-b-b.  If you send help, make sure they have ice cream, cheeseburgers or alcohol….b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b”

OOPS!  Can you IMAGINE THAT SHOWING UP IN A Federal  AUDIT?!!!!!?  Federal auditors have a sense of humor don't they?  Gees, I hope they do.

I think I need a VACATION!!!
