    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! :wall:

    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. :cool:

    That is no fun. :(

    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...

    So...our destination wedding site (for December) is booked. It WAS being held but since we didn't send the paperwork (Jason was born in a foreign country and divorced...it took some time to get things together), she booked the waterfall sites...apparently ALL OF THE WATERFALL sites...and asked me if there was "another date"...Uh, no. We are on a cruise. We are there for one day. For like 7hours. Not....even sure what to do right now.

    I'm so tired of only feeling like a person when I'm at the zoo. Home, my other job - bullshit, treated like crap. Hate it.

    I'm PMSing and I hate everyone and everything. Literally everything is stressing me out right now. And to make it even more fun, I just had a mixed blessing happen at work. I did a deal yesterday that might have possibly set a record for biggest deal ever done in the companies history. Ok, that's excellent. I can make my bills.

    But to take the fun out of that, A) it's my birthday on Monday. I hate my birthdays in general because they usually suck and nothing good happens. Lately I've just tried to simultaneously not be sober while not dying in some obscure manner. B) The new d*ckhead general manager has scheduled EVERYONE to work 12 hour shifts on Monday, for some thing that has no bearing on anyone except him. So I can't exactly do much on Sunday, because I have to be all alert and sales-y on Monday. Can't do anything after work on Monday, because I have yet another 12 hour shift on Tuesday!

    I've been working a stupid amount and it's been hot and with the above mentioned stress, I do nothing except go home after work and pass out. Or nearly pass out at work, as I did last week. So now I've got essentially all of my friends, work and otherwise, mad at me because I never come hang out anymore. More stress, hurray! Meanwhile all I want to do is sleep and be left the f*ck alone for a few days, which isn't going to happen unless I feel like calling in sick to work and getting written up for "not being a team player" or some such f*cking bullsh*t, which then means I'll get the whole "both your head and your heart need to be in the game, or you need to tap out." speech that has become the favorite de-motivational speech.

    Let's just quit and run off into the mountains. And, I haven't thought much after that except HIKING.

    Or start our own dealership. Where there is no lying to sell cars! And the employees don't suck. And all we sell are WRXs, 3series, and S2000s.

    My dog who lets people walk in and out of my work every morning just lightly growled at someone who came in and now won't stop watching. Creepy.

    Tuesday: feel fine and then go to Walmart to pick up a couple things real quick. While I'm in the store, tummy hurts a bit. Decide to leave asap and do real shopping the next day. But then decide to get gas on the way out as I was about out. Have to stop pumping gas at about halfway through. Rush home and am sick.

    Have to fast for my blood tests on wednesday.

    Weds morning: Woke up and am sick directly after waking up. Do my blood tests and feel okay after that. Eat a small breakfast (eggs). Eat lunch. (salmon, rice, and veggies). 15 mins later am running to the bathroom (got stopped by a co-worker asking a question and thought I was going to puke all over his office). I took medicine and made it to 2:30 before going home. Fell asleep at 3:30 and slept until almost 8. Went back to bed at 10.

    Thursday: Woke up and am immediately sick so I called in sick again.

    **** this. This is no fun.

    Monday is Canada Day. Because my work decided to close the lounge for the day and operate from the hall, only myself and one other person could work. My boss put me on schedule for the day, over the other person. Which... I'm glad for, I need the money, holiday pay at that. But I'm kind of meh about actually working the event after some problems I had on Sunday with the people running the event. Blah.
