Happy Hump Day, all.
I called in sick to work yesterday...my tummy was not in a good way. Let's just say, I could not leave the bathroom for QUITE some time to actually get ready for work, so I knew it was a lost cause. That coupled with this impending cold (that my body is so valiantly trying to fight off!) and I felt pretty yucky yesterday. Of course instead of laying on the couch the whole day like you SHOULD do when sick, I did a ton of laundry. I have this crazy thing that happens when I'm home sick...I start to feel guilty for not doing anygthing and then end up having to clean something or wash dishes or do laundry, whether I feel like crap or not.
I'm not looking forward to going into work today either cuz I'm sure that shit is not in order...it's like no one even gives a crap about covering my stuff (except for answering the phones) when I'm gone. Which means I will come back to one of the other campuses/teachers freaking out that they didn't get lists they needed yesterday. And that is so frustrating to me. On the job-hunt front, I have not heard back from the second job I applied for. I know it's pretty difficult to find a job right now so I'm not holding out much hope, but at least it's giving me the courage to keep trying! I also grabbed an application this past weekend from the Yankee Candle store at the mall. Not sure yet if I'm even definitely going to apply, but I'm contemplating it. The extra money during the holiday season would be nice, plus I would get a discount which would be helpful for gift-giving. But I'm still hung up on the whole giving-up-my-weekend part of it all. I contemplated saying I'm not available on weekends but I've worked enough retail to know, that is usually not an option. So I might just say I'm available on Sundays, or maybe every other Sunday. Saturdays I'm not wiling to give up though cuz I don't know when our guide puppy training classes (time) will be and on which Saturdays, and I really want to go with Daryl so that we both get equal training time with the puppy.
Anyone else have a three day weekend coming up?? I'm SO psyched about it! This is the first time since I've been at the school that I'll have off Columbus Day (now with our new owners, we have some additional holidahys off we never got before like: Columbus Day, Presidents Day, Martin Luther King Day, etc.). This weekned will be SO quiet and mellow and I'm freakin' excited about that!!! I want to take the big camera and Big D (and maybe the dogs depending on where we go) and go hiking in the woods to get some pretty foliage shots. And I gotta clean the house. Anyone else planning their weekends already???
