New Year Whine

(sorry, it's not funny or anything, just whiney)

The New Year rang in not as expected. The trip I was planning to go on didn’t happen (let’s just say some people are incredible assholes deep down – no I’m not talking about K who is far from an asshole). After getting past the stomach flu I got hit with a lovely cold. Why? Because I gave birth to two walking-talking bio-hazard germ magnets that live to spread their diseases to me like Pestilence of the Four Horsemen.

I’ve been living in a veritable haze of medication, tissues and migraines. I don’t recommend it for anyone. Some of the medication has been very interesting, as in leaving me seriously spaced out (Drixoral cold & allergy 12 hour sustained relief ) to where I had difficulty carrying on a coherent conversation and let’s not even think about the ever so entertaining shopping trip with D and the offspring. My bursts of energy have been spent doing the never ending mound of laundry and reading. I haven’t even felt much up to being on the computer and just haven’t. I haven’t even been reading e-mail or answering the phone. Sorry, just not in the mood to be social, really in the mood to just crawl in a cave and be left alone until I feel like a human again. The progeny don’t much go for that idea though, they have needs and they seem to believe that I am the only one who can take care of that for them. Aren’t they supposed to be self sufficient by now? You know, make their own meals, and work a job or something? Whatever, I’ll be thankful when school starts again on Tuesday. (This damned school district has the longest winter break!)

Another added bonus for the New Year is that Easy Bake Oven is not working. It was briefly fixed and now it’s not again. *sigh* I don’t even want to go into it now, but hopefully it’ll be up and running soon.

The job situation is completely uncertain at this moment. I don’t know if I’m fired or not. Honestly I’m not sure I care either. I lack any respect for my boss and simply can’t stand her. So maybe this is a good thing, I don’t really want to go back to work even though I do love what I do, I completely dislike the company I work for and of course my boss and the ‘new changes’ to the company that the new owners are convinced will make things ‘better’ yet seem to only make things shittier and more stressed. So I may be looking for new employment soon and with that I’ll need to figure exactly what it is that I do want to do as far as employment and all like that. Who knows, maybe this is all the cold medication speaking for now.

And on that note I’m going to go back to the couch as I’m not even making sense to myself anymore. Hmmm.. I guess that Aleve Cold & Sinus makes me spacey also. At least I enjoy it more than the Drixoral.
