And for those of you who are following this closely (and I'm assuming that's ALL OF YOU, RIGHT?!?!) I'm feeling better today.
I think sometimes the best thing for me is not the kind, listening ear - but the smack upside the head. I was talking to my office mate today & she was like: DON'T YOU DARE SEND THAT EMAIL TO THEM. YOU ARE DOING A GOOD JOB - THEY ARE LUCKY TO FIND/HAVE YOU AND IT IS THEIR RESPONSIBILTY TO USE YOU AND FIND YOU WORK. PULL YOUR FRIGGIN' HEAD IN.
