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?
