112 days until our (my dog and I) Escape from DC weekend getaway
The Dems really need to stop acting like they care so much about gun control. They had a chance to do something about it in 2009, and they did nothing. They had the 60 votes to pass something. Stop pretending. I’m not buying it. I just got a text from the DNC about supporting their gun crap. Please.
I think I may be going through Abilify withdrawal. 😦 I’m more nauseous than usual. And I have a headache, but I don’t know if it is due to training or the lack of Abilify. Right now I’m only skipping two days between doses. Will I ever be able to stop taking Abilify? Or will I have to deal with being sick? I just hope I don’t get depressed. That’s the most important thing.
Ugh. The nausea and headache definitely have nothing to do with training and everything to do with Abilify. I’m convinced of it now. I might go back to taking the Abilify every other day. That’s how much I hate feeling nauseous. I just can’t deal with the withdrawal. This really sucks. I wish there were something to take for nausea (another med!), but nothing OTC is strong enough.
This week has been so busy and just nuts. I’m never working this much overtime again. The training is really hard. I’ve only completed one week of training. Well, I’m a day behind right now. I’m glad some of this training is at our own pace. On Monday, I will probably be in training for most of the day. We get to divide our day between work and training. They claim they want us to focus on training, but I feel bad for not getting any work done, so I try to do both each day.
It’s funny when I tell certain people what I do, they think my job is easy. ROFL. My job is so stressful. We cannot make mistakes. That is probably the most stressful part of my job. They also expect us to be highly productive. We get measured daily, weekly, and monthly. If we could work a little slower, then maybe there would be fewer mistakes. So much pressure. Even the managers email us about handling our stress on the job. I think that’s funny because they are the ones pressuring us. But this is a corporate environment. What should I expect? Corporations don’t care about us. That’s the bottom line.
OMG! I just found out that Marie Forleo was at Gabby Bernstein’s talk in Los Angeles! She was one of the 1300 people in the audience. She heard me say I don’t have any friends. There’s no point in freaking out now. It already happened. LOL. I love Marie. Who doesn’t? But I’m so embarrassed. I really didn’t have to know she was there. If I ever were to start my own business (probably will never happen because I’m not interested at all), I would take Marie’s B-School and Gabby’s Spirit Junkie master class.
This week I…
Music of the week (my top 8 most listened to): Brandi Carlile, Rachel Platten, Kesha, Tori Kelly, Camilla Cabello, Maria Mena, Mariah Carey, Lea Michele
TV of the week: Celebrity Big Brother, PLL
Celebrity BB is so entertaining. They are playing HARD. Too bad it ends on Sunday. I hope they do it again next year. It’s hard to find celebs to stay in a house for 3-4 weeks. Plus, CBS doesn’t want to pay the celebs. They say it’s “too expensive.” As if CBS doesn’t have any money.
Movie of the week: none
Podcasts of the week: The Lively Show, The Rachael Maddow Show, True Crime Garage, Mentally Chill, Pop Shop, All in with Chris Hayes
Books of the week: Now reading –
- All-American Murder: The Rise and Fall of Aaron Hernandez, the Superstar Whose Life Ended on Murderers’ Row by James Patterson and Alex A. (Sooo good!)
- Uninvited: Living Long When You Feel Less Than, Left Out, and Lonely by Lysa TerKeurst
Planner update: Plans of the week in my Get To Work Book
Plans for the Weekend: I just want to stay in bed and read all weekend. I need a break. I’m exhausted. But I agreed to work 5 hours of overtime on Saturday. Blah. And I have to organize my shelves and hang up my clothes. Do I sound like a slob? Lol. I just have to get organized. On Sunday, I’m going to spin class.
Thanks for reading. Have an awesome weekend. 🙂
