Wow – I could have SWORN it’s been at least 2 days since I posted last. Guess what – that was YESTERDAY!
Well, nothing on this 2ww to report so far – stressing as usual – but no symptoms of anything that I can tell. I did feel a bit of nausea yesterday, but I’m not sure if that’s my mind messing with me or not.
I can say that I’m beginning to despise my job. Now – I make great money and love the people I work with, but it is starting to become a chore to get up in the morning and drag myself in here. This company is basically a combination of other companies (they chose acquisitions as a way to grow back when they were growing) and it seems like my segment of the company is the red-headed step child of them all. We don’t get near as many resources, we are always getting the finger pointed at us for everything, never get any congratulations from upper management (even though we blow our quota out of the water EVER month), and our new VP of sales is pushing for more calls/talk time to a point that it’s so completely frustrating I want to bang his bald head against the wall.
I think I really just need a break and I can get back into it. I’ve mentioned before that Lori has been ill, and I haven’t had any vacation time in a while because it was all used for when Lori was sick. Basically, since March, I’ve been EXTREMELY stressed out about either Lori’s health or money (Lori’s been out of work and we’ve been living off of my savings). She’s had 3 surgeries and been in the hospital MULTIPLE times – once I didn’t think she was even going to make it. I’ve been burying myself in my job to keep myself sane – and I think I’ve burnt out a little. Well, now that she’s better, I really need to get away for a bit. WE really need to get away for a bit.
(BTW, need a job? I can point you in a direction to look! We are the largest group of job boards in the country)
I am excited, however, for January to come. My company is having our National Sales Meeting in Marco Island Florida. Nothing like a company paid vacation! We’ll be staying Sunday thru Wednesday for the conference (ALL DAY sales training and company gatherings – yay) at the Marco Island Marriott Resort and Spa. It is ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL and set right on the beach in Marco Island Florida. Now, Lori and I can’t afford to stay there after the conference, but I found a nice hotel in Fort Myers for us to move to (Candlewood Suites) that I named my own price on Priceline for ($50/night instead of $200/night!). We’re going to stay Wednesday thru Sunday and just explore southern Florida – one day specifically set aside to see the Keys. Lori lived in Key West for 5 years and says it’s beautiful – the pictures don’t do it justice. Hopefully that’s the getaway I need to get back on track here.
Anyway – 5 days down, 10 to go?
