I'm complaining..

This has been the week from hell. The full time job has run me into the ground, which wouldn't be so bad except that right after I'm done with the job that takes all my mental strength, I then have needed to turn around and go to Target. On the nights that I didn't work at Target, I stayed late at the full time job. And even though I am sensing relief because its Friday, you all know I don't get to fully enjoy the weekend. And its supposed to be 75 degrees both days. I am seriously considering giving someone my Sunday shift because honestly, I need a day. I had 2 nights in a row where I got 4 hours of sleep, which means no, I did NOT make it to the gym this week. I was going to go last night but instead I passed out cold as soon as I got home and slept for 3 hours. When I woke up, I made dinner and spent the rest of the night in bed watching TV before I went to sleep. I usually feel guilty about being so lazy, but last night I was 100% ok with it. You know those days at work where you come home and you cannot even form a rational sentence? Yep. That's been me, all week. Right now its probably 75 degrees out, and the sky is blue, and it smells like flowers. And all I want to do is go home and mix a drink and unwind. But I will have just enough time to throw on my red shirt and khaki's and rush off in Friday traffic to Target, where I will stay till 10:00. By then I will be too tired for the drink. If I actually get undressed for bed tonight, I will call it a success.

If you are still reading this bitchfest and haven't yet clicked off to read a better post, there were some good points to this week. I finally got my sub today, and it was fabulous. I bought a red teakettle to match my red decor in the kitchen, and I love it. Yes, I could absolutely heat water for my tea in a pot or in the microwave, but I think the red kettle is more fun :) I got a new pair of shoes, because I needed silver ones for a wedding in April, and I made sure to get ones I can wear anytime. Today was their debut, and they were a hit. I also got a new purse. It's bright white, from Guess, my little present to myself with my bonus I received last week and its FABULOUS. I have been wanting a white purse and I am IN LOVE. What else... what else... I am sad to say this is all the good that has happened. Not a good week. I very much hope next week is better...

Have a great weekend!!

OK I just got off the phone with the boyfriend and we were talking about my current financial situation and how I need to find a second job in the evenings. Now I'm seriously stressing out and thinking I won't be able to do it. I'm already dog-a$$ tired when I leave the office at 5 - I don't know if I could make it until 10. Great.

sorry you are working so hard. I have some days like that, only I don't get paid. Well, I get paid in sloppy toddler kisses and Mommy, I lub you's, so I guess I get paid. It still won't buy me a cute Guess purse.

Leiah: My advice is to find something that you can make money at that will be as simple as possible. I used to work the front desk at a salon before I started at Target. But also, I am so tired because I have been doing either 2 jobs, or one job with CRAZY overtime, (or both) for 3 years now, and I'm tired of it. But you would be surprised at what you can do when something needs to be done :)

Michelle: Paid or not, you still work harder than I do, and you don't get time off. So I guess I will shut up now :)

Will: I work full time in the IT department of a major publishing company. Long story short, I sort of fell into this position with no desire/experience, so I find a tough position even more difficult because I barely know how to turn on a computer lol. But I do enjoy being challenged at work... its been a long time..

WhisperingWriter: Don't be. It didn't last :(

Elizabeth: Thanks for following!!!
