Wow! I have not even looked at my blog in a week! That is crazy. It has been so crazy that all I can do is finish all of my work and tasks and then fall into bed; and even that is not restful, as I have been so stressed out that I have been having nightmares for the last few nights. Last night was not too bad, but I dreamed I was in Paris all by myself and I had to climb to the top of the Eiffel Tower for something. The night before I dreamed that several people were chopping me up and cutting me with knives. Pretty scary. I think I need a vacation.
I am applying for a new position in my department, and I just turned in my background packet. I am sure there is nothing more stressful than filling out one of those. I had to get transcripts from everywhere, email everyone I know and ask them to be references, get several papers notarized, and spend hours filling out papers with my entire life history. Fun. I hope it is worth it.
I have been working a ton of overtime at work so I can get the money together to finish our bathroom and continue to pay the bills. Besides that, the bathroom has been a nightmare in itself and we are having tile trouble. The walls in the shower are a little crooked, so we are going to have to do something about that before we can start tiling, etc, etc. Aside from that I have a kid to raise and a house to keep.
My little brother thinks that now that he has a part time job he can eat more than before and not do any chores, and he is all pissy when I ask him to help out. So what am I going to do with him? I would like to kick him out and tell him to find his own way, but I am not that kind of person, so I will just let him continue to live here and try to remind him nicely that he is not paying for anything, so it would be nice to have some help around the house. What would you do in this situation?
Daddy is good, but I am feeling neglected lately. I do not want to go into my married life here, but gee. He has never really been romantic or anything, but sometimes I need him to really want me by him. Not just sit next to him while he watches TV, but really want to spend time with me. I know, I know, men don't care about that stuff. So what do I do about that? Nothing?
Still no baby on the way; I do not want to give up, but really... I give up.
We recently acquired another cat, so now we have a dog, two cats and four fish. This place is a zoo.
My Peanut is growing and growing; he is such a good boy and truly, he is what gets me through each day. He is learning so fast and I love to talk with him and play with him. Aren't kids fabulous?
