- Wedding: September 2012
Since I woke up this morning, I have just been crying & feeling upset. I think it started because I had a dream that I was hanging out with my best friend, and then I woke up and of course, realized it was just a dream. Darling Husband & I just saw our best friends last week, because we all went on a vacation together. I figured that might make it even harder to come back home. To clarify, we moved in October, and we are several states away from them now. Not to mention, all of my family happens to be several states away, too. I only work part-time, I actually tried to get on full-time with my company, mainly because I really need the time off, so I can travel home. My boss knows, but I don’t think she really understands it. I actually struggled with deciding whether to take our late honeymoon/vacation with friends, or travel back home. But I knew that if we didn’t take the honeymoon now, we might not have the chance.
I didn’t think it would be a big deal for me to take unpaid leave, especially since I’m asking 6 months in advance. But alas, I’ve been told that I can’t take it. So Darling Husband had to dismiss the idea of another vacation with me, and I have to dismiss the idea of being able to travel back home and see family.
It’s really bothering me, because as my Darling Husband has pointed out, my part-time job is really taking up all of my time. I work only 25 hours or so a week, but I normally work everyday, for a few hours. So I get a day or so off a week, and work quite a few weekends as well.
I think I’m just rambling on this, but I think I just need some kind words, because I have just been upset all morning. I’ve been thinking so much about trying to start some type of home based business, so I can travel and see my family when I need to. I’m also at a bit of a loss as to how to do that, I guess.
I’m just sad, sad, sad. :'(
