Limbo... and I don't mean with a pole

Sunday, January 20, 2013

Just gotta love a new year, right? I'm trying to get myself into the loving the new year spirit, but I am just discouraged and disappointed. I felt great up until I got my work schedule for the week. They gave me more hours, sure, but they have put me in the drive-thru - I am not ready to do it by myself. I don't have a problem jumping in to help someone, but it is a 2-person job, far as I am concerned. But 3 out of my 4 days this week, I am doing drive thru. They hired 2 new cashiers, so they will be up front with someone else training them, so no telling how that will turn out. Yes, I am being a grumpy butt right now. I don't want to do this job any more, I want something new, but thanks to our leaders and their stupid "30 hours is full time", the new tax kmeasures, and the damn Obamacare BS that isn't going to help most of the people in this country, there aren't any jobs out there!

I want to move home, closer to my parents and my kids and my grandson. I want a job that enables me to be able to pay my bills and maybe, just MAYBE, have a little left over to buy toilet paper. I want to be able to knit for fun, not so that I can get gas money for my car since my paycheck doesn't go that far. I am so sick of being in this rut, and there is nothing I can do to get out of it. Financially, life sucks. So at this moment, life just sucks. Thankfully, there is always a Friday, and a weekend off to look forward to.

    Thanks for the comment! I appreciate it a lot. Yeah it's pretty stressful right now, the drive thru hasn't been as traumatic as I had expected, but then again, we really haven't been busy. I'm grateful. The owner fixed the hours so I'll actually be getting over 25 this week, and he actually talked to me about things he is trying to do to implement permanent hours for us older folks there. I feel better about that.

Unfortunately, my boyfriend is in the hospital following some blackouts he has had the past month, since he had a cardio cath. He lives 475 miles away from me, so I can't even go be with him, and I won't get to talk to him until tomorrow night because they won't let him have his cell. I'm ok, but yes I am still worried. One more day of work, then I am holing up here in the house for 3 days (except for church) and knitting and drinking tea with my cats all around me. That's what I look forward to right now.

    Hi! I am the new team leader in the TMJ team. I wanted to stop by and leave a short comment to introduce myself, since you are one of the currently active members of our team.

From your blog post, it sounds like life is very stressful at the moment, to say the least. I hope that things are getting better for you as the week progresses--it sounds like *something* has got to give soon!

I know there's not much to be done about it online, but let me know if I can be of any help or support to you. Take care! emoticon
