Stress, Stress, and More Stress

It has really been a stressful few months at work.  We have been in the process of selling an apartment complex, and I have had to revamp our accounting system at the advise of our broker.  It didn't affect the bottom line - but we now have to go half way around the world to end up at the same place -


We closed on this sale late Friday.  One of the owners is out of the country, and he left me instructions to wire his share of the proceeds to his account.  He did not leave me adequate and complete instructions so this did not happen until early Monday morning.  This very large sum of money was deducted from our account on Monday but has yet to show up in his account due to a banking error.  We do know where the money is - but it is ridiculous that 48 hours later it is still not resolved.  I am literally sick to my stomach.


I would be a liar if I said that the thought of smoking had not entered my mind the last couple of days.  But I will say that it is not really a crave or even a urge but more like a memory of what I would have done in the past.  In the past, I would have been a chain-smoking fool dealing with all this mess even though it would not change or expedite anything.  I know that it will work out - and smoking is not required.
