Just Another Manic Monday - W7.D2

Monday, June 07, 2010

'Tis Monday. I hate Mondays. I hate my job right now..honestly, I'm just plain bored and I had so planned on having something lined up following college that...well, I'm a little lost. And spending 10 hours at a job that is stale and boring isn't a great way to spend a day...any day, for that matter. I know I should be thankful that I even have a job, especially because hubby doesn't...but this job doesn't pay crap and it's boring as all get out, so I'm not thrilled or over the moon about it. I did not bust my butt and stress myself into a near cardiac arrest for three years to stay here, bored, underpaid, underappreciated, and unmotivated to even work because of it. *sigh*

Wow! Hope that's out of my system now! On another note - it's Monday. The real start of a new week, and I'm sitting here wondering - what can I do THIS week to top last week? I actually have a couple challenges starting this week, so I feel even more pressured to make it an awesome week. First things first, I discovered that the local YMCA's fitness center gives vistor passes for like 7 bucks to people "out of area." That will be of great use on nights I work late or have to work my second job and have time in between.

As far as lunch goes today - I have a few options. I can either eat the frozen dinner in the freezer (at least, I THINK I still have one in there...) or I can walk in one direction and get a salad at the whole foods, or walk the other direction and get a sub from Subway. It feels like a pretty nice day out there, so I think I'm going to take a walking option, even though my knee feels quite stiff following my 30 minute walk yesterday. (Hubby actually talked me into that...he wanted to go bike riding again at the lake...he's noticing changes in himself as well and he likes it!)

It seems today is going to be one of those "I don't want to do anything because I can't think of what to do indecisive days." Hope it turns around soon! Right now...I'm tired. Seriously ready for bed. I just didn't sleep well last night so I guess that's what's with me today. *sigh* I hate that I didn't drive to work because I can't drive off and get away from here. I know it should be good that it restricts me to walking, but I *hate* feeling like I've been stripped of my options. It's not that I *want* to drive anywhere, it's that I want to have the option of driving somewhere. *sigh*

    I think your Monday blues are simply the side-effect of missing me! ha ha ha!! JK. You will find something you may take longer than you want...but perhaps you are learning something along the way...I seem to remember something about "I hate to wait." Maybe one way to look at this job is that for now, when you really need it, it sounds like you have time to spark and get support from awesome people.

    I know how you feel about the job situation :( I'm stuck at a desk job I'm not really interested in all day as well. I hope the week goes fast!
