It's been a week of waiting and unexpected financial distress here... between the visit with my family and Lyn's visit, tonight is finally a chance for me to breathe and have some quiet time. Granted, I'm not at home but the baby I'm babysitting is sound asleep. Truthfully, I wish I could be sleeping, too- I don't think I've gotten many hours of sleep these last few nights.
Last night, we thought my grandfather was very close to his death and most of my family began the trek up there. I "slept" with my phone on and was up most of the night, expecting to hear news, I guess.
This week has been so hard-- the debit theft, car issues costing hundreds and completely wiping out my emergency fund (plus more), trying to figure out flights/buses/trains to NJ for when my grandpa dies, school stuff (Jessa has officially been out a third of the year so far...I was talking to one of my coworkers when she brought me home from work and I realized just how frustrated the situation makes all of my coworkers, not just me. It was good to hear affirmation of my thoughts, but it also makes me feel helpless because I can't exactly tell my boss to fire her!
Anyway, I was so stressed at work and just exhausted mentally and physically and emotionally. I haven't had my car there the past two days so I couldn't just leave, but there is a nice subdivision behind my school so I took my lunch time to walk and clear my head-- not sure I would have made it through the day without that, truthfully.
Anyway, I know this blog's boring and depressing these days- I wish it wasn't! I haven't had time all week to read a book or a blog with Lyn's visit (she's very low-key like me but we were just busy!). Having here here kept my mind occupied until it was just in overload...man, my eyes are tired. Bed sounds good right now!
