I hadn't talked about this before, just thought about what would be appropriate to post. I was definitely down the week I discovered this and didn't want to say something stupid or too down. I'll be losing my job in September. It was limited term employment, but they were expecting to renew. Instead, office politics … Continue reading Losing My Job
We had a spat of nice, spring weather, and I was loving it... until a front moved through. Because Wisconsin. Temperatures dropped. The wind picked up. I had a combination of an allergy and pressure based headache and miserable joint aches that I could barely think through. It was awful. I ended up taking a … Continue reading A Front Moved Through and It Was Awful
We're expecting financial difficulties - I've mentioned before that I am a Project position AND that I need accommodations to work. Well, there's been a lot of upheaval, so it's likely that my position won't be renewed. Add to this, the fact that I can only work a 32 hour week BUT ALSO need to … Continue reading Save, Save, SAVE!
I hadn't had a full out anxiety attack in months - I'm pretty aware of what things might set me off, and I'm careful to take my medications prior to expected events. So, I freak out, but I don't actually have an attack and can calm down with some work. As a side not, I'm … Continue reading Can We Please Not Do That Again: Anxiety Edition
Last Sunday, I went to bed with nary a snowflake in sight. At 4:30am Monday morning, the text came in - our office was closed! Which prompted me dragging myself out of bed and canceling appointments. Meanwhile, I looked outside, and it didn't look particularly bad. Little did I know that they hadn't plowed the … Continue reading Had a Snow Day!
Okay, so this is as much swearing as this blog's going to get! And only because it is the actual name of this business. We had our year-end work meeting in Dodgeville this year, and we ate at Bob's Bitchin' BBQ! This involved quite a hike for everyone, but we got to see our Janesville … Continue reading Bob’s Bitchin’ BBQ
So, I had to travel for a work training in the Wisconsin Dells recently, and of course this endlessly stressed me out. I was told my husband couldn't stay in the hotel room, but his parents lived close enough that he intended to drop me off and drive to their house. I haven't really traveled … Continue reading Work Training – Wisconsin Dells!
I woke up this morning at 8:30 and thought I was late for work. Note that I have today off, so levitating out of bed and freaking was NOT good for my health. Not good for my husband's health or sense of humor. But I don't have work. *relieved sigh* I'm sure you've done this … Continue reading Oh, My Heart!
So, I slept funny on Wednesday, and when I woke up and tried to move my neck it was excruciating, complete with a scream and tears. I couldn't even get upright without help. I took a muscle relaxant, had my husband try to give me a neck massage, pain killers, and nothing helped. On top … Continue reading Bummer: Neck Injury
So, at work I make a ton of phone calls where I have to get certain bits of information verbally confirmed. I research each first request, call, ask the same questions, and have different processes depending on the answers. I've done about 500 of these phone calls (according to my stats) now, which is a … Continue reading I Sound Like a Flight Attendant #Lifegoals
