I’m still here…

I have been so busy that my free time has been filled with all the stuff I still have to do. I’m tired, I’m frustrated, and I asked for it!

If I didn’t mention, I got the promotion, and the head aches that go with it. I was actually doing great for a bit there, then reality set in. We have been extremely busy the last few days and I’ve been so frustrated that my eyes keep tearing up at work. Luckily I haven’t full-on cried yet, although I was REALLY close to it yesterday. My supervisor was with me, and I think my tears motivated her to work harder that night. I don’t cry. Ever. I get angry and I yell when I’m upset, but these last few days I’ve just felt defeated. Ten hour days followed by making dinner and doing laundry. I know I’ll adjust. I just haven’t found my balance yet. (Oh, did I mention I’m still taking three classes? The semester ends next month.)

I’ve been really itching to knit lately. I haven’t picked up the needles in a while, and I think tonight might be the night. I’ve just been thinking about it since Saturday. Hopefully I can post a FO soon.

  1. Don’t worry, you’ll get the hang of it! I also work 10 hour days, and I understand the pressure that goes along with it. I know it seems impssible now, but you must make some time for yourself everyday to knit. It is the only thing that gives me peace and quiet. I can also do it while I spend time with my family, and that helps. As you prbably know, those relationships also begin to suffer with a long work schedule. Take time for yourself, stick to a personal schedule strictly, and it will all come into place. Promise!

  2. Glad to see you again! Hang in there girl! Busy-ness is everywhere! I feel for you. I’m working a part time job in addition to my regular job, taking a nutrition class, trying to find time with the BF who has been working 6 days a week 6pm to 6am and my house is a disaster. I finally broke down and did some laundry so I have socks and undies… 🙂
