I’m so irritated.
I’ve been stomach-sick for 3 days now. Gross. I found out that I got a parasitic infection from swimming at a lake and I will probably feel like this for another week or so. I also have to work 10 out of the next 11 days and my birthday is a week from today. Awesome.
Anyone else up for a whining session? Thanks for listening!

On the sick train too…
5 days with a severe bronchial infection. Worst part, I infected my nurse (Hubby) and of course, as he is a man, he is much sicker than me, (what the??) so now I am sick and looking after him.
Fortunately I have 7 weeks of sick leave up my sleeve, and here is Aus you can take your leave under medical certificate with no question, so that is what I have done so far this week.

Oh! Can I also say, get better quickly, Rubybride, and I certainly hope you can enjoy your birthday!

I start a new job today. One one hand, we need the money. On the other, it’s answering phones (and other stuff?) for $10/hr. My anxiety is through the roof, I feel like I’m going to throw up, and I want to cry. I’m hoping that it leads to something better, but no one knows how long they’ll need me–the girl I’m subbing for came from the same agency I’m through, was hired in, and seems to have disappeared. I almost have the feeling that I’ll get there today and she’ll be back.

@MrsOliveBird: oh gosh, sick men…they are the worst. While I was a little ticked to find out that my stomach issue is parasitic and will last longer than your run of the mill stomach bug, I was also relieved that no one else in the house would be getting sick, because then I would have to take care of them in addition to myself.
@vorpalette: sending good vibes…keep us updated!

@rubybride718: Thank you <3 It’s actually not too bad so far (an hour in, haha). They said today might really suck because they’re doing a luncheon for the customers, so no one is going to be around. HOWEVER, everyone has been super nice (albeit struggling with getting me going, since only one person is sort of trained to do this), AND there’s a freaking Pepsi fountain machine (my downfall) and free popcorn. I was also offered a pilates ball to sit on if I wanted lol. And the lady who’s been helping said that I can amuse myself however–internet, reading, etc. because I’ll probably get bored.

I’m sorry you guys are all sickie! That sucks, hope you feel better soon.
@vorpalette: Good luck today! Pepsi & popcorn!! YESSS!!
My whine- I’m just hating everything today (PMS). I need another part time job or a full time job so I’ll have more money for wedding stuff and I’m having such a hard time finding one. I’ve been sending out 20 resumes a week, finally got an interview yesterday and it did not go well.
And I decided I want to get like green ribbon or lace sewn on the bottom of my petticoat (it’s attached to the dress so I can’t dye it) but I won’t have my shoes before I go for my fitting so there’s no way to match it 🙁

@rubybride718: Aw 🙁 I hope you feel better soon!
I’ll cash in my ticket for the whiner train too; my allergies starting acting up this weekend *damn you ragweed!!!* and I’ve been wandering around in a cloud of antihistamine and sinus congestion for the past few days.
On top of that my DH conveniently forgot to mention that his West Coast family was going to be visiting this week and *surprise!* they’re staying over this weekend.

@soon2beMRSgq: Boo…I hope you find something. I’ve been sending out resumes like crazy and not even an interview. A lot of jobs I see posted have ridiculous experience needed (like, super specific stuff).
In other news, our showroom is gorgeous (plumbing supply, so we have bath tubs and faucets and stuff) and I want to go walk around in it and lay in this gorgeous free standing tub that’s out there. lol…
Whine: I’m gonna get soooooo fat off of Pepsi and popcorn. Also, I don’t know anyone yet (face/name), so when someone calls for so and so and I call in to their office, it keeps being the person standing over here by me. Derp.
