its salary + comission and she gives great perks....so I guess we shall see what we shall see, I think I would like to work there, its right on Barker behind Perkins...great location and she has young kids about my kids age and everyone there has kids (terrific!) its only one night a week late (7-7:30) that doesnt bother me and on saturday every 6 weeks for 3 hours (wooo kill me!)
anyways, thanks for the PHC links shannon and jen!
I FIND I AM HAPPIER WHEN I GET UP IN THE MORNING. I HAVE THINGS I WANT TO DO, MY HOUSE IS CLEANER, MY LIFE FEELS MORE IN ORDER AND CONTROL AND I DUNNO, I JUST FEEL MORE POSITIVE ABOUT EVERYTHING. I GUESS I DIDNT REALIZE HOW MUCH THAT PLACE WAS BRINGING ME DOWN TILL I LEFT.
MY INTERVIEW THIS AFTERNOON IS RIGHT ON BARKER RD BEHIND PERKINS. MY MOM THINKS NO MATTER WHAT THEY DO/OFFER FOR $ THATS THE PLACE FOR ME (SINCE ITS LIKE 5 MIN FROM THE HOUSE) I TEND TO AGREE....
ON THE ONE HAND, I KIND OF WANT TO NOT WORK FOR AWHILE (MONTH OR TWO) ON THE OTHER HAND IM ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE WHO PANIC ABOUT SPENDING MONEY WHEN NO (OR LESS) MONEY IS COMING IN...
THANKS FOR EVERYONE WHO CALLED OR TEXT'D OR EMAILED WITH WELL WISHES..AND KEEP THOSE "I FOUND THIS JOB YOU'D BE PERFECT FOR" LINKS COMING MY WAY (THANKS JEN!)

at work since 7am and Ill be here till 5pm. I hate working these 10
hour days. By about now (2:30) im shot...eating chocolate to stay
awake, reorganizing my desk, checking my appt. book for stuff to do,
making lists of crap i have to do at home (then discarding them as
useless as I will not do the stuff on there anyways) and wondering
(again) why i didnt just sleep an extra hour this morning. My boss and
I had a meeting this morning behind closed doors...he basically
offered to take the majority of my workload away from me and have me
write the process manual for the department and focus on internal
auditing of files....since he knows this is what i like to do anyways,
he was dangling a big carrot in front of me....its not like i had a
choice in the matter, but its nice to know my boss likes me enough to
try and make my work day more palatable.
today was food day at work. im too full to move, how can i type after
eating sweedish meatballs and cake? i ask you....
i bought chocolate gum today. its like chewing chocolate frosting. mmmm frosting
i may have to spend my afternoon doing the work "pretend" so i can
sleep (essentially i toss my ipod ear phones on, put my hands on the
keyboard, slink down low in my chair and nap)

if i worked for the military than if i worked here...it is about 2:30
and my boss still hasnt sent the email out letting us know our
coworker is "sick" (read: too drunk or hungover to come to work). why
not just email everyone, in fact, why not just have that email set up
as a daily occurance since she is always sick?
I guess that lately I have been dealing with a lot of addicts in my
life. I think you have two kinds of addicts, one the ones that can't
stop what they are doing and try to get help, and try again, and try
again...and the ones that don't think they have a problem, until they
get in a drunk driving accident and kill someone. I had a long
discussion today about the debate over is alcoholism and disease or
not. Me, Im firmly in the NOT. Drinking is a choice you make, you
may not choose to become an addict but you did choose to start in the
first place, you don't choose cancer (Thats a disease)-although if you
choose to smoke 4 packs a day and get lung cancer, you cant really be
shocked can you?
Im divided because someone I really care about is trying to work through their addictions (and 10000 kudos for that) and someone I dont really like at all is totally denying theirs.

you know lately there has been a rash of obvious stating going on around here. like "if you take the shred bin key, you should put the shred bin key back where you got it...instead of throwing it out in the parking lot." (really) "if you dont work here anymore, we stop paying you." (unless you are milton in office space) if you get yourself fired from your job, and don't pay your Cobra, you don't have health insurance when you break your ankle falling down the stairs when you are drunk, which is why we fired you in the first place, since you didnt show up to work for a week cause you were on a bender" (really)
