Hi, I’m Tara.

What started out as a private blog to document our adoption journey has evolved into my journey through therapy, spiritual awakening and whatever I feel like writing. Without our struggles to build a family, I’m not sure I’d be waking up, and for that I’m grateful.

Work Rant

I just might lose my freakin' mind today. I'm up against a deadline (of course) and I "thought" I had given the copy center in my building enough time to make 5 hard copies and one pdf file of my report. Apparently 4 days is not long enough and when I had to go down there yesterday, and bother them about making their deadline (forget that by 12:30pm they had already missed the damn deadline since I requested it yesterday MORNING) I got in trouble. No f***ing kidding. The manager of the copy center called my division chief (that would be one level up from my supervisor) because I insisted they get my job finished by today. WTF? The thing that really is the kicker is that those guys were total jerks to me but they told the division chief that I was rude. Yeah, what the hell ever. Their final crowning glory - making me a pdf file at such a high resolution that the thing is 200 MB. It took an hour to optimize the stupid thing down and now it's 20 MB so I still can't e-mail it in our new nazi-like e-mail system that only takes 10 MB attachments (don't even get me started on how lame that is for engineering documents). So now I'm being introduced to the governments version of .ftp which like everything else is as difficult as humanly possible and the damn site won't let me make a new folder to upload my file. *aaarrrgggghhh!* Currently waiting for an .ftp support dude to call me back.....tap tap tap.....still waiting.....
