I'm referring to my "frustrated musings."
We had another bad news free day. In fact, my work day was quite good. I only had to teach half a day because we had an afternoon for planning. I love having the afternoon to work in my classroom! It is amazing that I stay late almost every day and am at work early every day, but there always a TON to do!
We finally spoke to our relatives in Arizona over the weekend and we've made plans to visit them over our March Break. Considering that the first two weeks of January have been challenging, we're going to need a vacation by the middle of March!
Last July Mr. JB and I bought a time share from a very large vacation ownership company. One of the perks that we received when we signed on the bottom line was a $1000 credit towards air fare. So I thought that it would be pretty painless when I called the company to book our tickets.
Alas, I was VERY wrong.
I spent an hour and a half on the phone and then had to hand it over to Mr. JB because I was about to lose my mind! We spoke to almost a dozen people and NO ONE COULD HELP US!
I ended up e-mailing a very long e-mail to one of the people that sold our time share to us. It took until the second last person to tell us that they weren't able to help us and we had to contact our home resort.
The incompetence of customer service representatives just boggles my mind!
I know that my patience is running low since I'm on CD28 and I'm all hormonal (although not as bad as last month on the vaginal progesterone). My boobs are sore and all I want to do is eat salty things or chocolate. I also could barely get up this morning despite getting a full night sleep and taking a two hour nap yesterday!
In the grand scheme of things, all of this vacation business is very small in comparison to all of the illness in my family. I feel quite fortunate to be complaining about something so insignificant.
