What I want to write about

Monday, April 14, 2008

This past week and weekend have been overwhelming to say the least. I don't even feel half-caught up, and all I want to do is sleep and blog and relax, but I don't want to. So, in a nut-shell, here's what I'd like to tell you:

  • My sister and her boyfriend have made up. He was going through a mini-crisis and flipped out at the wrong person. I hope they make it. I really like the guy, he'll make a good brother-in-law one day.
  • I've gathered almost all of the paperwork I'll need when I go to Edmonton on the 29th to apply for my VISA.
  • I'm dealthly afraid that they will reject the VISA (not that they'd have a good reason, but still)
  • I'm starting to feel the effects of working 6 days a week for what, 6 months now? Yeeesh.
  • I spent a nice day on Sunday at an art show with some friends, and didn't buy anything, despite wanting to spend money.
  • I still wished I had slept in and spent the whole day in my jammies doing nothing.
  • I want to have a garage sale in T-minus 4-6 weeks and feel overwhelmed at the amount of crap I have and want to sell. Where do I even begin?
  • I have waves of cold feet about moving to London, which I hope are a mixture of stress and PMS.
  • I bought a mouth-guard to wear at night to apease my teeth-grindingness and I keep spitting it out overnight.
  • My teeth still hurt.
  • I'm starting to realize that I feel much better with an organized room and really want to go home and clean rather than going to my second job tonight.
  • I had such a productive day at work that I feel okay about leaving 15 minutes early.
  • I can't wait until we hire a new person here in the office so I can sleep in every other week!
  • I with the damn phone would stop ringing!!!!
  • I have one paycheque to desposit, another comming in tomorrow and once they do I will finally feel less stressed about my TD account sitting at close to $0. I need to stop transferring every penny I've got to my savings account.

Aaaaaahhhhh! I'm really thinking of taking up meditation or tea or exessive chocolate to apease this stress. I don't like the feeling of butterflies in my stomach the whole day long. Must. be. Zen.

And with that note, I've got to go make sandwiches for the people. Oh! We did get a new debit machine at work, so I am no longer charging people$.25 to use the debit machine. No one has noticed. They only seem to get pissy when we DO charge them, not when we DON'T. (Even the regulars who know my name haven't noticed!). We're taking MasterCard and VISA, too, which I don't really support, but whatever.

I'm out. Cheers.

I know how you feel. I have to work at the coffee shop today. It's hard doing a second job on top of everything. Hang in there.

I don't know how you guys do it.. I was complaining yesterday about having to go to my p/t job and I only go a few days a month!!!

I hope things get better... you do seem very stressed. I've started drinking herbal teas, they have really good ones (I just drank the samples I had on hand and was impressed)... I find those calm me down. And other than the honey I put in, it's a lot less fattening than chocolate!!

Glad your sis and her bf made up :-)
