Today at work I wondered why I even work in the mailroom. I was so frustrated with so many people, that I just wanted to not work there any more. Between the incompetence of all but two of my fellow workers and the multiple flats, (between 250 and 350 envelopes each) I just wanted to quit. My two faithful coworkers share my frustration. We wonder how one worker still has her job after three years. The funny thing is she still doesn't know what she is doing half the time she does come in which is only half the time she is suppose to work. So do the math. Yes it may sound like I am bragging about my work ethic but I don't mean to brag. It just annoys me when other people don't pull their weight. I could just not care and not pick up their slack but then things wouldn't get done. Anyways I am way behind on uploading pictures of the set and the cart. Jennifer will be here tomorrow evening so I will use her camera and take some and up load. Alot has changed with the set since I last posted. It was over a week ago. I'm trying to end on a good note so... wha da ya think of this record setting Nebraska weather? huh huh...

Nice try with the uplift. I'm sorry you're frustrated. Remember: It's a job. "In the course of a life time, what will it matter?"

Now I'm not saying 'quit' - what I am saying is that once you've put your time in, you can leave that headache there. You do what you can. The best that you can. You don't need to worry about the effort everyone else contributes.

It's hard to overlook, I understand, but a consious effort goes a long way.

I love you Jeremy..

Jeremy, you are lucky to have such a wise fiance. She has very sage advice. I don't think I have any better advice to add. Love you, Mom
