Apparently, I’m anemic. I’m always so tired unless I have caffeine and then I’m okay for about 30 minutes. I knew this all along. But it took a while for the doctors to figure it out. Anyway, I’m waiting for more lab results. If my iron is low again, I would have to take two iron pills instead of one. And then get tested again.
Someone emailed me about a job. Oh fuck. I don’t feel like doing interviews right now. This job would be more money than I make now and since I have these things called bills, how can I not even interview for it? blah. I’m thinking about it. I don’t seem qualified, but he contacted me. I have to respond, right? Sigh. I’ll email him tomorrow once I figure out what to say. lol.
I do have one of the certifications he wants, but most of the other things, uh I haven’t ever heard of those duties so no I don’t have the experience that is required. I will say auditing is involved in the job. My ultimate goal is to be an auditor in this field. I would say a teacher or an auditor, but teaching seems to involve so much more talking, so I’m a little freaked out by the idea.
We got another update about part-time work. It is supposed to start next week. At this point, since there is so much going on, I don’t mind waiting for two weeks for the work to start. I need time to BREATHE.
I still don’t know when the home inspection will be. It must be at the very end of August. So much for the two-week notice? I’m still stressing out about it. I’m off today and tomorrow. My mom will help me get everything in order tomorrow. Fun times. I was so excited to have these two days off, and now I’m stressed.
Good news! I just got my fall/winter PTO approved. I have a full week off in October, and I somehow managed to get election day off!! Yay! We are voting for governor, so I expect it to be a little busy. It won’t be like 2020 or anything. And I snagged 3 days in a row off in mid-December.
I still haven’t gotten my textbook so even if I wanted to start the course, I couldn’t. I’m so sick of calling and emailing people about doing their jobs. I feel like that is all I’ve been doing lately. I also need another book for the course from another store, and they sent me the WRONG BOOK. Ugh. They won’t send me the right book until they receive the wrong book and they won’t send the shipping label. Blah, blah, blah. I’m so done. Anyhow, with PT work and FT work, I don’t think I will be that engaged in the course for a few weeks.
Depo-Provera update: “I thought Depo-Provera was supposed to stop your period,” said my doctor. ROFLMAO. What universe is she living in? Yeah, ideally that is how it is supposed to work. Now it seems like I’m heavily bleeding 3 days a week. It used to be every day for 3 months straight so how can I complain? But the heavy days suck. I don’t even feel like walking my dog to the park, but I do.
My PCP also said Depo-Provera is used to stop periods “and for other things, of course.” Uh, nope. Not for me. I am only on DP for one reason, and that is to be period-free! It will happen one day. Maybe soon.
This week I…
Music of the week: Paula Cole, Ke$ha, Joseph, Brooklyn Duo, Kelly Clarkson, Halsey, Bethany Dillion, Grace
One day, I need to post about what music I really grew up on. I said I grew up listening to Linkin Park, but I was in my early 20s (college years and beyond) when I really got into them. I mention this because I was going to say I grew up listening to Paula Cole and I did! I was in my teenage years listening to her and Jewel. Jewel saved my life as much as music can. I also listened to TLC and Aaliyah during those teenage years. I could go on and maybe one day I will.
TV of the week: Big Brother, The Keepers
I’ve also been watching court trials. I go through phases where I’m obsessed with trials. I just finished the Baby Doe case, and now I’m watching another case where a father might have killed his son. But everyone should have kids, right? sigh. In the Baby Doe case, I don’t think the man killed Bella. I think the mother did it and maybe both of them hid the body. I’m not even sure he had anything to do with it. That whole case was sad. Well, I find most cases sad and frustrating. I have a lot to say about the so called justice system. Don’t get me started! 😉
Movie of the week: None
Books of the week: I finished reading The Fact of a Body: A Murder and a Memoir by Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich. I thought it went on a little too much, but otherwise, it was a good read. 4 stars.
- A Beautiful, Terrible Thing: A Memoir of Marriage and Betrayal by Jen Waite
- Dead Man Walking: The Eyewitness Account Of The Death Penalty That Sparked a National Debate by Helen Prejean
- The Anti-Anxiety Food Solution: How The Foods You Eat Can Help Calm Your Anxious Mind, Improve Your Mood, and End Cravings by Trudy Scott
- The Gift of Change: Spiritual Guidance for Living Your Best Life by Marianne Williamson
Planner update: Plans of the week in my Erin Condren
Plans for the Weekend: Making sure everything is perfect for the home inspection. 😦 This is a big house (for me), and my dog is constantly making a mess, so it won’t be perfect. He is just supposed to check the appliances. Yeah, right. I’m trying to give this ‘problem’ to the Universe and not get too stressed. I have been better about it recently, but it is still kind of weighing on me.
I don’t have plans for Saturday and Sunday. I’m trying to do everything on Friday, but I don’t know if that is going to happen. My mom and I going out to eat on Friday after we get the house ready for inspection. I just checked my planner, and I have nothing listed for Saturday (yet). That should be a good thing, right? On Sunday I have one thing I want to do.
I just really want tomorrow (Friday) to be the end of getting the house in shape.
Well, now I have to think of what I want to say to the guy who liked my resume. Tomorrow is going to be so busy, so I don’t want to wait until then to come up with an email. I should work on it tonight and have it mostly ready by tomorrow morning. He told me I could call or email. Of course, I’m emailing. I hope he doesn’t want to talk tomorrow. I’m going to be cleaning and then going out to eat in the afternoon. No time to really talk. Well, I can take a break from cleaning. As long as I’m home, I can talk.
Maybe something will come out of this. I just feel so unqualified. I think I even saw that job posted and thought, “I wish I could apply for this job, but I don’t have enough experience.” I just skipped over it after reading a few of the requirements.
Enough about the job. I’m going now. So much to do.
Thanks for reading! Have a wonderful weekend. 🙂
