This week was my first week with the job. Time passed fast but it was also very tiring. It will just take some getting used to. It's seasonal, so it goes til around November and cuts off and starts back up around Feb. So far it seems kinda cut throat like my previous photo jobs. You need to look out for yourself or ppl will stomp you out. I am not looking for friends, I am looking for a paycheck. So far I can deal with it, working with women is always soooooo much fun! Luckily the managers are men so if I have an issue I can go to them and say something. I did not have that the last few times I worked at a photo job. So we will see.
Friday I left early for my shoot and visited my mom and helped her. It seems like no matter what I give her and my brother is never enough. I left at 9 am to help her and I wasn't home til 8 pm from my shoot an hr away. Today was my only day off this week and when I called today I just got the impression, "why arent you here??". Do they expect me to quit my job and be there 24/7? It's 40 miles away, I have no where to sleep when I go there, I am exhausted and gas is $3.49. My mom is not trying to pressure me but she needs help. She seems to keep getting set back no matter what she does. She thought a woman wanted to buy the office and then it turned out she only wanted to lease. Then she found a lawyer she liked and then her lawyer had a family emergency and fell off the the face of the earth. So now she should be a week into probate court and she is started all new with another lawyer. She is starting to wonder if she can sell the office at all or just fold. She is paying all this rent and who knows how long it will take to actually sell it and she is losing all that money waiting. Cleaning it up is a whole other story. When I was there the phone was ringing nonstop for clients records. Her answering machine is full so they just keep calling. Such a nightmare. Can I just go to sleep and wake up 1 yr later? lol
Eating has not been stellar but exercise has been pretty good. Only was able to hit two fitness classes this week and that was after a long long long day at work. But I went cuz it was the only day I could make it. I gotta work on eating. Last night was a beer festival and I was drinking and ate a lot of stupid crap. Today I did good! Ran 4 miles too that should make for something.
