I got a little excited when tweezing my eyebrows and now there's a spot where too much is missing. I hate when that happens lol. I don't know that it's even apparent to anyone else but I sure as heck notice it.

I THOUGHT Logan's skin was improving, since his dandruff is getting better. NOPE. Today he's super flaky again, and he's getting scabs/pustules on his belly and neck again. GRRRRR.

I let Cynder and Abrams run around today while I was tanning. (My parents have ten acres away from any main roads, so I thought I'd be nice and let them explore; Abrams did great, btw.) Cynder found a dead animal and rolled on it. She got a bath with the hose, but she still stinks. BOO.

I've been drinking all day today. As in drinking straight rum until I feel sick, throw up, and then start all over again.

Today has been the worst day. Online, anonymous hate isn't cool.

Ugh I really need to go to the eye doctor, my vision is horrendous and it's starting to cause headaches. I just DON'T want to wear glasses. I hate the way they look on me and I just.... don't want to have to wear them. So I know I need them and I "want" them so I can see, but I totally also think I wouldn't wear them in public. =P

Sometimes just laying all your cards on the table works in your favor. From what I can gather I think you're a hard worker and a good employee.

I was wondering if there was anything we could do to make this more lucrative for me. Am I eligible for a raise anytime soon? Is there something I can do to set myself up for success and promotion here?"

Sometimes just having that discussion with your boss shows them how much you care. I've gotten a raise a time or two using that method. Employers just don't know if their employees are struggling unless we say something.
Sorry for such a late reply but this is a really good idea and if it continues to be a problem I might end up doing it. As it is, I figured out a way to drastically lower how much I'm driving (depending on if my schedule can be rearranged that day, but usually it can.) I'm *hoping* that'll make a big enough difference.

I feel like I have a good rapport with my boss already which is encouraging. I did talk to her the other day about wanting more overnights, when possible, because I need to make a bit more money, so that door is already open. Ish.

It isn't going to fly for too much longer though since some of the rentals we are looking at are higher than we wanted to pay. I'm going to have to look for a new job soon and preferably for one with good health benefits.
Yeah, that's really rough We always joked at my daycare that if you work at a daycare, you can't afford a daycare. Well... "joked" :P It's true! I hope that, when it's time, you can find a new job that is both lucrative and that you enjoy. That's my struggle with it... I really don't want to end up like my mom, who simply doesn't enjoy her job at all (and has encouraged me endlessly to pursue what I love for that reason), but at the same time, bills gotta get paid.

I've been gone SO much lately (just from home, too busy). Tomorrow, I have an hour after class before work and I don't know what to whip up for dinner in that time. It's been much too long since I've made a decent meal, so I have to at least throw something together. I can't wait to be out of this transition I'm in.

I'm having my second migraine in three days and I can't sleep it hurts so bad.

I can't take drugs because I can't keep anything down.

I can't do this.
