A Great First Week For Hubby :)

Saturday, September 28, 2013

Well it has been just over a week since the hubster started working again and he has gone from a 34 waist in his pants to a 31. He is carrying my spare pedometer and he is averaging well over 10,000 steps per day during the week and about 2,000 or so on the weekends. I do the same only I usually average around 9,000 steps during the week and the same as him on the weekends.

He is enjoying his job so far and he is happy again which makes things better around the house mood wise. However, I seem to have caught a case of the "woe is me"s again. Right now I am fighting a cold and really not feeling very positive about where things are sitting right now. I forgot my keys in the mail box on the corner, luckily someone from our complex found them but not before some other rat decided to take my keys to our truck emoticon . The upside to that is the truck doesn't run but there was a keychain on it that my Mom gave me and it seems silly but I was extremely upset over losing these things. I know the keys can be replaced and they are useless to anyone unless they want to fix my truck before they steal it emoticon but I think it was losing the keychain that really irked me.

It seems that some of the smallest and "silliest" things bother me lately especially if it leads back to my Mom. I know I had my issues with her in the past but now that she is gone most of the things seem petty and I am now regretting not trying harder to mend our relationship. I also don't seem to be doing to well on keeping my relationship with my Dad current. It just seems I never have time to go visit him and when I do I can never track him down unless I go through my sister which I hate doing. I guess I am just too independent for my own good.

I am also stressing about my jobs right now because it seems that the harder I try to back away from more work the more people are throwing things my way. I am trying to quit my second job right now because I don't feel I have the time to dedicate to it and be efficient but the company keeps sending me emails saying they really want me to stay because they need high eval (meaning I score 99.5% on my blind evaluations) people to stay as they are getting more accounts. I already have a more than full-time job outside the home (work between 45 and 50 hours) plus with the hubster's new job I have to be up at 3:30 AM to be ready to go by 4:15 AM to get him to the job site by 4:45AM. Then our oldest and I sit at my office from about 5AM until 7:00AM when I take her to the university campus for class. Then I go back to the office to start work at 7:30AM. I don't get off from work until 5:30 or 6:00 PM which leaves almost no time for us with the youngest. So I have now told them that if they want me to stay I will be available only on Saturday mornings and on Sundays.

I am hoping that with the fact that hubby's work is a place that seems to actually reward hard work and "good behaviour" that his cheques will be bigger and hopefully he will get some of the bonuses as well. We know from my niece who used to work for this company and her boyfriend who still works for them that the company does indeed like to reward those that are willing to put in the time and effort. Right now his pay is a little light but it will be on the upswing soon by the sounds of his supervisors.

I am going to go nurse my cold/cough and hope that I am at least 75% by Monday morning as we are already short staffed and we have someone going on vacation on Monday afternoon.

Hope you all have a great weekend.

    Glad that hubby's job is going so well. Hope that trend continues. Sometimes it's hard to be positive about anything when not feeling well. Hope the cold has gone by now. It sounds like you have a lot on your plate and dealing the best you can.

    Hope you find the strength you need and can back off of one of the two extra jobs.
