Gratitude Project

Must work today. Alone. No doctor. Booooooooring and feels ssooooo long. This is my Sunday lament. And then other times I just bitch about having to work. And then in the last year I catch myself, frequently, and reverse my bitch, grateful that unlike so many others, I have a job. Humility. It's a good thing at times.

Amen. Gratitude finds itself displayed in the strangest of places.

For the next 4 weeks I will be working the department ALONE, supporting 250+ people ALONE. Did you hear me mention ALONE?

I've done this before (when he has been on vacation, etc.) and it proves to be a daunting task. Why am I not bitching? Because I do not have to work with Sandy (remember Teh Cowerker Frum Hellz?) It is easier to pulverize myself into oblivion working alone than it is to receive one day's worth of "help" from her.

For all small blessings, let us be grateful. I'l cowgirl up, thank you.

HUGS YOU MUCHLY!

I well recall Sundays. Dead, dull, and how did a six hour shift last that LONG??? But, I'd give a tit to be back at Pearle, working 50+ hour weeks and making money.

I miss being able to afford to live decently.

I dunno .... maybe give half a tit and work part-time?

I know what you mean, hon. And you only need a bit more to there. Is part-time a possibility? Or even casual which is less than 20 hours? Maybe they need someone for when other want to use their PTO. Either at Pearle or Sears or LensCrafters or Target?

The only optical in town won't hire me again. Apparently the fact that I called bullshit on one of their pets older employees pissed the owner off. Small town, small mind. :S

The next closest is WalMart, over half an hour away. They don't pay enough for part time or casual to make it worth the drive, sadly.

BUT... I am going, once we get back on top of things again (Thanks, ConAgra... *she says in a sarcastic tone*) to get my GED and next spring I'm going back to college. I'm going to figure out something I can do that my pain issues won't matter with. I'm too damned smart and too damned young to let this stop me totally, and since the board at SSI is convinced I can still work at what I've always done, (sure...) I can't even get disability.
