Full Crazy Mode

Wednesday, September 10, 2014

I promise I haven't forgotten you, SP! I began my temp job and that was kind of it for being super on top of everything!

I'm doing really well on drinking my water. I drink tons when I'm at work, I could be better at home though. Food is steadily improving. I eat salads now. With stuff in them! Nothing too crazy though. Candied walnuts and dried cherries, with a nice vinaigrette. Where I'm weakest is exercise. I've gotten some nice walking in this week, but if I want to lose weight, I have to be working out.

The problem is I'm tired. Exactly one month from today is the writer's conference I'm running. I took yesterday off to spend with my hubby, which we did a bit, but I also slept forever. Slept in really late, went to eat, then slept again all afternoon. And then I didn't stay up super late, either. And right now, I wish I was at home laying in bed with a book. I want to relax, but all I do is push on the list of things to do for the conference. It's going to be an amazing event, but the chapter I'm doing it for is...frustrating, as a whole. They are a pretty divergent group and I get so frustrated with volunteer organizations that don't understand they are volunteer organizations. What you did two months ago, two years ago, or whatever, doesn't change what needs to be done today. That's being part of a volunteer organization. So I'm tired. Like, really really REALLY tired. I have some really great people helping to make it so incredibly awesome, so that does help. But with a month to go, I'm sad to say we're all getting pretty worn out.

What little bit of my "personal" life there is right now is okay. The house is keeping fairly tidy, the mister is pretty happy ;) and I'm making enough money to scrap by. The crappiest thing aside from exhaustion and frustration is that I don't know when my temp job comes to an end. My supervisor is on vacation this week, but I need to ask her next week. Because I think it may just be through September and if that's true, I need to know NOW so I can start lining up something. I have zero savings because all I can do is pay my bills :( I paid off almost all of my medical bills. I have one random one that came in last month, but I have to find $80 first. I wouldn't even be able to afford going to my own conference if I wasn't comped.

So I need to exercise, and watch my bad food intake. I've had some fast food recently because I was just so tired, I couldn't care. How are you world? Better than me I hope!!

    Hope your temp job continues as long as you need it to. My son had one and asked when the temp period would be over. Boss said, "today," meaning he was no longer needed. Nothing like a heads-up!
