So I only get one day off this week; I’m back at my desk Sunday. Overall things have been good. Work has finally lightened up a bit, and tomorrow should be a pretty chill day. For a while there I was being crushed under the stress, and I was not sure how long I would be able to go on at that level. I also asked for a raise and was told the company has a salary freeze in place. So no raise anytime soon, regardless of all the extra work I’m doing. I’ve clearly gone above and beyond what they asked me to do when they hired me. I will not give up on my pay raise, but it will have to be a near future type thing. I also made it clear that I would keep working at a high level regardless.
We went to the arcade today with Tristan. Amanda has been feeling depressed again lately, and her work weeks have been really hard on her. She’s enrolled in this super-rigorous diet program which will start early next month. She’s in pain because there is just too much extra weight on her body. I think it’s going to be hard, but positive. I like that when she identifies a problem she does something to fix it.
It was pretty bad for a few weeks there. I gained some weight, I was stressed out every day. But that seems to be over. Even though I have to go in tomorrow, it’s not so bad. At least it’s not 12 in a row. Right?
Oy sounds like it’s been a teeter-totter for you both. Stinks you work today and as you pointed out-it’s not 12 in a row!
I hope Amanda feels better soon, and I can sympathize with her Abilify weight. She’s determined and she can do it. (If all else fails, she should try another med, but that’s not immediate)
How was Tristan? I hope he has been better behaved for you guys.
I’ve been all over the place. I’m trying to stay sane enough until Friday-then I’m off to Tennessee for the weekend to relax, reset and reboot. Hell I may even turn off my phone..maybe :P
Oh, how do you like your new phone you sold your life for? :p
Hey Sass. Amanda is going to improve. She goes to see her psych doc on Wednesday. She really does not like weighing as much as she does, and is motivated to change. I think positive momentum is behind her.
Tristan has been pretty good, but he’s got a bad attitude sometimes. I think this just gas to do with his age, and not being self aware. The world revolves around him right now, and he gets angry when things don’t go his way. But I do believe this will change as he gets older.
Glad you are getting away for a break. Sometimes that’s the best remedy.
I am thoroughly enjoying my phone. It is markedly faster than my 4S and the huge display is relief to my eyes. The battery has much better lifespan than I was expecting, given my usage. I also like some of the features, like the rotating desktop and new music app. It’s everything I need. Not saying it’s better than anyone else’s, but it certainly works for me.
