LIfe sucks, some times

So, I'm working alot right now... Well, not as much as I used to, but a bit. So I go into work and work my butt off everyday. Last night, I was still the last person out the door and asked my boss, why I get stuck with all the work... HE says to me, it's because I'm the only person who can keep up. Talk about unfair. I work hard and my reward is more work.

I know this is how my works. I know that that is why people don't work very hard there. But I thought it would be a bit different on the shift I changed to. But it's the same company, so I should have known it would be the same politics.

On top of that, I don't love my job anymore. I used to love it. I used to shutter at the thought of leaving. But now, I can't wait to quit. I have one more year. I'm going back to school, so I just have to work there long enough to finish school. I know it's worth it, but I just hate the idea of being there any longer than I have to.

I miss being on the night shift. I can 't go back. This shift is better for a million reasons. But the people suck. I don't like anyone that I work with. I miss the people on the night sort. I miss the money I used to make. I keep telling my self that it's better this way, but I do miss what I used to have at work. It's just not the same on twilight.

Other than that things are good, but life sucks when you hate your job.

Life is going on....

So we are buying a house... I'm really nervous about it. We are getting everything in order to close on Sept 22. But I'm really scared that something will happen and we won't get it. We have to give notice to our apt complex and I'm super scared to end up homeless if something happens. But i guess life has to go on. We have to grow up sometime. I am just not really ready to be an adult I guess.

On top of all that, I think I'm going to go back to school. I'm super bored being a house wife. I don't really have anything to do and I just sit at home. I don't have any friends that are super close to us, so I don't have anyone to spend time with. So I get a little lonely. So I decided now would be a good time to go back to school. I'm nervous about that too. It means I have to spend more time at my job. Which is a bummer. I really wanted to quite. But another year won't kill me.

My husband and I talked about it alot. The pros and cons to what school I would go. I was debating between UW, or a trade school. So we talked and decided I would try the trade school first. I'm going to go to to Vet Tech school. I think I'll like being a vet tech, but I'm going to job shadow a friend first to see what it's like.

If it works out I can work part time and still make really good money.

It's just alot of change going on at once. A new house, a new career. My husband deploying.

He just got his official warning that they will be deploying, "not before Dec 2008". So it's official. He is on his way out of country. We don't know exactly when, but it will be around the beginning of the year.

Lots of change, but I guess life goes on.

Arrrrg

So, I'm starting this blog for lack of somewhere to vent. My husband is a Marine is heads out on drill once a month leaving me at home alone with nothing to do. I live pretty far away from my family and friends and often just sit at home with my dog. I get pretty lonely and even got bored enough to start a myspace page, in spite of the fact that I hate myspace. I just needed something to do.

Life is really crazy right now and I'm going insane stuck at home. We are buying a house and that is really stressful. I also spent that last eight months out of work because of my bipolar disorder and am having a hard time adjusting to my work schedule now that I'm back at work. Not to mention, I hate my job most of the time and never get to see my husband.

I was working nights before, but switched to evenings when I went back, but that shift doesn't get as many hours, so now I have to work 6 days a week. It totally blows.

It's been a crazy month for us. We bought a house after looking for only 2 months and are getting ready to close in Sept. I'm really nervous about owning a home what that means. Not to mention I don't really want to clean a space that big. It's in a really great area, but still far away from everyone I know... So when my husband deploys at the end of the year, I'm all alone.

My life is pretty boreing... I never do anything fun. But I feel like I never have time to do much of anything... I really need a vacation to somewhere sunny and warm.
