I need strength. I am sick of being "strong". Going to court tomorrow. If I show up in the courtroom, there will be consequences. I need there to be. This is not good for my health. Well, actually I lose weight this way but this is sooo not sparking!
Job is weird. My manager is talking about making me an employee but is afraid to because of my absences due to court! We had this discussion today and where am I going tomorrow? Court! But there's more. We finally got over the alternate hours that I work (7:30 a.m. - 4 p.m.) usually without lunch. I am swamped. I have been there 12 years! I turn out outstanding work. However, there has been miscommunication all around so I am working on two projects that I found out today are priorities for him. One he didn't realize was a priority till yesterday. On the one hand they don't want me to work extra hours but this work needs to be done. And then there's another project, that he says what if someone asks you a question. It's MS Office. I usually train highly sophisticated financial software, much of which is truly a foreign language to me.
So my immediate plan is to get through tomorrow, do a conference call from court before it actually starts, get DH settled, put in sufficient billable hours to knock everyone's socks off, and get my hair colored!
I don't have to wake up at 4:30 for five whole days so I can work, rest and exercise. My plan is to be fitter by Tuesday!
