Just Not Feeling It

So the past few weeks, well maybe months I just not feeling the work thing. It not like my job is hard, well shouldn’t be hard. There are times where others make it harder than it has to be, and some of the people I deal with are just difficult to deal with. But overall this job is not complicated, I am just not feeling it.

So those that might say “why don’t you find another job”, to them I say I have been trying. I haver looked, had a couple offers that didn’t work for family reasons, others that just never came to together. But I am looking, maybe at time passively, but I am looking.

What gets me is that it is not like I am not apprecated at least by my superiors, or most of my co-waorkers. So I should not really be feeling the way I do. What way is that you you ask? THe feeling that the job I do is thankless, that people that I have to deal with don’t really want me around or care for what I have to say...even when they know that I am giving them sound advise, its just that it is coming from someone else.

Hopefully this will pass soon, I am getting tired of the whole thing and afraid that at one point I am going to say fuck it and just leave.

When the Night Off Turns into an All Nighter

So last night I was supposed to be kidless, the girls were supposed to be with their mother who was housesitting for her brother. I was looking forward to being able to get some sleep as I had a long day of work due. Well about 8:30 get a text from the Ex that my middle daughter wasn't feeling well, the she thought she had a fever. She didn't have a thermometer but said she felt hot. See when my kids are really sick they all come to daddy and I knew that if she wanted to come home that she would so I asked. She of course did, I offered to get her but her boyfriend was there and was able to bring her.
Well when she got here, she had a temp of 102.8! well after a shower and some Ibuprofen and about 3 hours later we are off to the ER with 103.2. That was 11:45 PM. Ih you might be asking why go to the hospital so quickly? Well she has a compromised immune system so at 103 it becomes an issue if something is out of control. 

Well some lab work, an IV, some Tylenol and 4 hours later we are on our way home. Lab work didn't show anything serious, they think its just something viral. Which I was happy for......But remember that long day I was supposed to have? Well I still had to work and getting to bed at 4:15 and having to get up at 7:45 AM to be in some town 45 minutes away to work 8 hours really sucked. And yes I had to make, I was training someone that had I not worked she wouldn't have worked and I was meeting an Owner to do some training that was scheduled and would be hard to reschedule. 

At the end of the day I was just happy to make it home without falling asleep at the wheel. My baby is still sick, I still have to worry about her but I am hoping to get some sleep tonight!

When the Simplest Things Becomes to Overly Complicated

I have been trying to work on a home project tying in the families calendars. The key piece that I need is a cheap 10 inch tablet. Yeah I know tablets are a dime a dozen, but I don't need any bells and whistles. But the whole thing has gotten complicated and seemingly impossible to complete.

Anyway I was trying to use this online shopping site Wish.com (also know as Geek.com). I have tried to order a inexpensive tablet 3 times with this site. Each time something has gone wrong, first and third try was delivered to the wrong address in a different state, the second one "was delayed" and I was given a fidget spinner instead. What gets me is that for anything else that I have ordered has come with no problem, but I order something for a specific reason I can't get it.

Maybe it's a sign that I should give up the project, maybe I am going about it the wrong way, maybe its just I am cursed. Either way I am totally pissed that this company does this and there is little else I can do.

I will find a way to complete this project, I will find the technology that I need. But damn does it have to be so complicated?

A New Chapter

So tonight my middle baby Sierra graduted High School, she has seen her struggles over the last few years but she handled all like the a boss. She worked so hard, she caught up on courses she was behind in going into this year and tonight she moves into the next Chapter of her life.

The only thing that I wish was differnt with tonight was that my Sister was around to see it. She would have been so proud, she would have cried, she would have been the loudest voice in the theatre. But I know Joann was there in spirit, she wouldn’t have miss this.

Now Sierra moves on to college and only time will tell what sort of impact she will have on this world. The next thing for me is my baby girl that is moving onto 8th grade. My girls are growing up....they need to stop :)
