Thinking 68 hours a week is just a little much ....

Yes, I am still working those horrid hours and there does not look like much relief in site........hey, maybe there is.  I have an interview with another department on the 15th so hopefully that one will pan out and I can go back to working like a normal person.  Someone said to me the other day "look at all the money you're making".  Hello reality check here, you only clear about 50% of what you make so it ain't that great.

I did go today and stock up on fresh fruit and veggies so I can at least eat one healthy meal a day.  Good think we don't have vending machines where I work or I would have become an addict by now.  I've been trying to do the right things with my eating but these long hours sometimes make me senseless where my meals are concerned.

I had to go to the walkin clinic today and get some antibiotics, I've been fighting a sinus infection for a month now and decided if I didn't go it would probably get the better of me.  It's hard to concentrate at work when your head is pounding and your eyes hurt.

We are still in the mighty throws of winter right now.  We've had more snow and cold temperatures this winter than I can remember in a very long time.  It's been hovering around -28 C during the day and dropping to -45 C at nights.  Even with the day light hours getting longer there hasn't been any relief and the weatherman is forcasting a long cold spring. 

Sorry, if I am being so negative.  Not much to be positive about right at this very moment.  We did get the appeal for hubby's disability in on time and they are now reviewing it.  Not expecting any great exciting news from that either.  Right now everything is in the doldrums but such is life.

I hope everyone is well, I have managed to read a few pages but no energy to make comments.  Soon I hope.

  1. Hey girlie! Nice to see you - and I don't think you are being negative at all. Yes, those are amazingly long hours - ouch- but you are on a positive track with the healthy food [I swear I could snack on apples and celery all day long if given the chance. Oh and green grapes. Nature's candy, I am telling you.]
    I think everyone has gotten the ridiculous weather, but this too shall pass.
    Take care, always nice seeing you. Hugs and love, Skippy
