Another Vacation.

I could use another couple of days.  Not just because of all the family stuff, that's really not so bad.  But because I feel like crap.  Not in that I'm-getting-a-cold type way either.  Just blah.  The headache from Friday with the talking family and screaming children, yeah, this is day four of that same headache.  It comes and goes, but never really goes away completely.  Just enough so I can function a bit.  Drugs?  Not helping.  It's also triggered my stupid upset sleep cycle.  I can't get to sleep, and then no matter how much I sleep, I'm still tired.  My eyes are itchy, from not sleeping or the weather, I don't know.  Anyway, it's just bad.  I wish I had another few days to chill and relax and sleep.  Although, I've a pretty good idea that probably wouldn't help much anyway.

I did get a few things done this weekend.  Or not done, but at least started.  Christmas Cards, for one.  It's a bit of a longer process than I'd like, but I think I'll be able to send some out this year.  I got a few web-related things done, but I'm still horrible behind on all the updates I need to make for people.  I finished knitting the front half of the gift I'm making for Matt's mom this weekend, now I just need to buy the other half and put it together.  The felting came out quite well, although it stretched part of the piece so it's a bit more odd shaped than it was to begin with.  Kristy taught me to crochet Friday night, so I came up with a few projects to start once I get Helen's present finished.

Work is getting more frustrating by the day.  I don't know what to do.  I'm increasingly unhappy with the work load I'm given, because it's growing exponentially everytime I talk to my new manager.  He's giving me stuff I can't even deal with, and ignoring the fact that I can't deal with it.  The jobs for the new group that's forming may not be posted for a while still, and even when they are, I'm not sure I'll want them.  This whole "spin-off" company is going to turn into a lot of managers and a few all-in-one type jobs.  I'm not sure I'd want to transition from one job with a bunch of heaping piles of work to another.  Especially when most of the managers will still be in that learning-their-jobs transition.  It's difficult to work for a manager that doesn't know what to do, and won't ask for help.  Especially when I'm also working for a manger that I love working for, and knows exactly what needs to be done, when and how.

At least I have Matthew to go home to.

I hope you feel better soon. It seems like the winter blah is going around. Take a walk on a sunny day... That might help?

Maybe you could get to a point where you are a manager. That would take care of people who don't know what to do.

Isn't crocheting fun? My mother taught me when I was very young, probably 10 or so. It's one of my favorite memories of childhood, as she died when I was 15. (Christmas day, no less... Major suckage.) Anyway, you'll have hours of fun with crocheting, and more scarves, sweaters, and hats than you'll know what to do with.

*hugs*

I wish it was warmer. I don't like sunny days, but I like slightly overcast but warm days (yes, I'm weird). I might ride the stationery bike tonight, but I'm not sure it'll do any good.

I'd love to be a manager someday, although in this crazy corporate structure, I'd have to get hired as an employee first. Contracting sucks.

Sorry to hear 'bout your mom. It's neat that you remember learning to crochet with her. I've had one friend teach me to knit, and the other teach me to crochet, so that's neat. Hopefully I'll be able to churn out some nice projects fairly quickly.

Btw: did you send out the disk with the pictures 'n stuff on it yet? I haven't gotten anything, although our mail has been a bit slowly lately...

*hugs*

I have not sent said package yet. It is ready to go, though, and I'll send it this week. Probably tomorrow or Wednesday.

It was fun watching your crocheting project unfold last night :) And I'm glad (and I'm sure you are as well,) that it was not booties! :)

There seems to be a lot of work-related dissatisfaction going around lately. Must be something in the water :/

I'm glad I don't have the need for making booties!

I wish things at work would turn around for you. I know that can be incredibly frustrating. It spills over into everything else.

And the comeback from time off can be worse because of it. I hope you get to feeling better, too.

I hope things turn around for you at work. I know how frustrating that can be. And how it spills over into everything else. It is so good that you have someone at home to help get things going back right. I hope you get to feeling better too. Coming back from time off can be so hard. Especially when you go back to a place youw ould rather not!
