August’s punches just keep landing on me; or, being on a tightrope of suspense just pisses me off…

I got a slight boost of positivity today after listening to some beautiful music, but the annoyance and dread are still making themselves front and center. I've had crappy sleep the past 3 nights because of obsessive needlepointing (couldn't do much else, and I had a drive to finish the projects) and a list of … Continue reading August’s punches just keep landing on me; or, being on a tightrope of suspense just pisses me off…

When you finally get a break from the fight… & end up sick.

I guess this was the logical conclusion to running on nothing but junk food and caffeine for several days on end, working open to close four days in a row. I wasn't supposed to go back in until two this afternoon, but when I woke up this morning, I went from a slight bit of … Continue reading When you finally get a break from the fight… & end up sick.

We started out with some major computer glitches that were on the … Continue reading Getting over that little thing you can’t deal with until Monday, anyway…

I'd love to know this one, because though I'm happy I'm getting plenty of hours, I'm wondering if there's going to be anything left of me by the end of this new month. And how I'll deal with a suddenly reduced paycheck when I'm back to two jobs instead of having that third one that's … Continue reading #042–How do people work multiple jobs, 12 or more hours a day, and not go crazy?

#025–Do couples who live & work together have a work-life balance, & how do they do it without going crazy?

(Title edited because I forgot how to count) This is a question that's been bugging me for many years. In the age of sexual harassment seminars and iffy rules on dating in the workplace, it still amazes me that some people do date someone from work and may eventually get married. I guess when you've … Continue reading #025–Do couples who live & work together have a work-life balance, & how do they do it without going crazy?
