Just found out this afternoon that after a week of "balls to the wall" (8 hours yesterday 12 today, have to go in on my day off for probably 6 hours tomorrow, 9 on Thursday and then 12 hour shifts both Friday and Saturday)...we are now also being required to work 12 hour shifts on Monday and Tuesday of next week. Which are usually the two days at the beginning of each new month that we can sit back and relax and catch our breath before getting back in gear for the rest of the month.

So much for having a birthday this year!

This happened to me abouta month ago. No other symptoms, just my lymph nodes on the right side of my neck were all swollen. Took 2-3 weeks for them to go away. My doctor said it could just be stress or from being run down. I had a blood test done and didn't get a call back, so I have no idea why else they would've acted up.

Well it's official.... I am a single woman.

The other day I looked at him and realized I don't love him anymore. I'm not IN love. There's no spark. No butterflies. There's a fondness, but I can't feel much more than that.

It's a mix of relief and an incredible sadness.

I still love him, I suppose. As you would a friend, though.

I honestly wasn't sure where to put this. But it helps to tell semi strangers, oddly.

I currently have two dogs (+ Bloo, she hates 'em both) who do not get along here for daycare and today is very stressful.

I'm not really sure whether to say sorry or that I'm happy for you! So here's both.

Monday will make seven months I've been here.
I'm just not sure how it will look if I start applying for other jobs now. I mean... I guess it won't exactly hurt anything.

sigh.

I would just like to work at a job where I'm not belittled and treated like I'm stupid, and also a job where I don't have to panic about my job security. Is this really too much to ask? Boo.

The job security was probably the worst part of working in shelters for me. We were always being told that money was tight, couldn't make bills, etc. Ironically, the rich man's "sanctuary" that was always supposed to be there for the dogs was the first to go. Glad I got out of there when I had other opportunities instead of waiting around another year to be told I didn't have a job anymore and all the dogs were leaving.

^This. So much this. I hate how my body reacts to food. I've found if I keep my sleep schedule very routine, it helps. Don't know why. If I mess up my sleep schedule, everybody better plan a day out of the house. Lol!

I've pretty much come to the conclusion that I cannot eat any food ever again.

Yeah, that's exactly what's going on, and it's freaking me out. =< I already worked at a job where I never got paid on time. I've been paid on time every time here, but being told this stuff makes me really, really nervous. I told my co-worker the other day that I thought I was leaving behind a job where I had to worry about my job security when I got out of radio, and he said "Well, I don't think it's quite that bad that you should be losing sleep or anything..." "Oh, I'm not losing sleep. Yet. But there was that point in radio."



Also eff you iMac for displaying beautiful blue sky, blue water, sandy beach photos as your screensaver while I'm stuck in stormy central Illinois...
