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 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!
