Let's see where to start.
For the past several nights I feel as though I am working in my dreams. It may be project management work for building or who knows what. It is not necessarily bad dreams. It is simply tiring.
My weight is definitely up.
It is frustrating but definitely not unexpected. I am grabbing and yesterday even . This is not my typical behavior. We went out for an early dinner buffet (which we do about every 6 month or year maybe) and I ate a little of everything that was bad for me. It was crazy.
On a positive note, I did go to the farmers market earlier this week and bought loads of fruit. I just need to eat it.
Work - I am in between assignments. I am actually enjoying the time off for a change. We are getting lots done on the shed and I am able to research next steps. I have a hard time motivating myself to do the research after a full days work, so this is good.
The stress comes in that I do not know what my next assignment/project will be or when. I did get a e-mail then follow up call from a company regarding a full time position earlier this week. I am suppose to hear back today as to if I will receive a phone and potentially in-person interview. This could be quite interesting.
I sent several e-mails in last Friday for permanent positions and have not heard back on any as of yet. I realize it takes time.
I think the bulk of yesterday's stress came first thing when I received a call from the place that my DH was looking into for a pup (Lars is his name). We had been checking his e-mail at least twice a day and finally they called. Well it ended out that someone came in and adopted him over the weekend. I was quite frustrated to say the least. We had been approved and would have gone straight in when my DH spoke with them last wee had we known the process. Well, the woman said there were other "in front of us" that wanted Lars. Well, we really would have liked them to explain this earlier. The woman went on to explain that they do not have history on any of the pups because they are rescues and actually make a guess on the breed. They had another pup so I thought we might take the visit and get him.
Well, when my DH got home from the acreage he was really VERY turned off when I told him about Lars. That was it. He was no longer interested at all. This was a bit of a blow. He even said, maybe I was right that we did not need a pup not with all that was going on with our building the shed and such. UG. That is not what I though.
Anyway, I know....
I am a true believer in that but... of course it does not make it any easier.
On the positive....
Sierra and I are consistently getting in our morning walks.
I am not doing good with the treadmill though. I simply have not had a lot of motivation to get in any real miles. I think it makes a big difference with my DH home. Before between assignments, I quickly got in a routine of jumping on and watching Good Morning America. Now during GMA, I am typically trying to be somewhat quite because DH sleeps in a bit. Not that I can not get on the treadmill. Just a lazy excuse really.
MY DH and I have been able to spend a lot more time together and that has been really nice.
I simply need to hang in there and ...
Additionally, I should add that I do know ...
- to have a a wonderful DH
- to have Sierra. We are getting even closer after 9 years.
On a side note - My boy slept in the craziest positions. LOL
- to have had...
- and to be able to be not working for a few weeks and not worry about it too much.
HUGS to you.
