We took the kids at work on a field trip today, & while I was walking 1 boy to get water I saw a coworker from my old company! I immediately gave him a hug & chatted for a bit while the boy got his own water. Then on the way back with the boy we had a cute discussion
Boy: Who was that guy?
Me: That was my old coworker from the company I used to work for.
Boy: Oh. I’m glad you work with is now!
I think it’s bullshit that I’m made to feel like crap when I come home from a long day of work & just want 5mins of cuddles, or even attention, because I’m being “too needy”. Excuse me for having a fucking difficult job where I work with kids who are having a tough time & take it out on me & just needing someone to actually give a crap about me when I get home… Fucking, put the video game down for 5mins! Or ask me how the day went & actually listen to the answer. Or don’t get mad at me if, while I’m helping clean up after family dinner, I hug you ‘cause I haven’t had my down time yet… Fuck. Be a less selfish jerk
I really want a book club.
I have a “tea club”, I had a “stitch n’ bitch”, which I want to bring back!, so now I want a book club.
But, I find for myself that I generally don’t like being told to read a book. So, I’m thinking I’ll propose a book club where I gather my reader friends once a month & simple talk about the books we’ve read. I’m always looking for new books to read (though I have hundreds awaiting me on my shelf), & I believe this would be a way for all of my reader friends to compare & even share books.
Stories are meant to be shared & if we keep all the tales we read to ourselves we’ll burst at the seams!
I have this idea that the first meeting will simply be talking about book, but i have an idea to help us. At the first meeting I’d hand out little journals so we can write down the things we’ve read (title, author, brief description, if we liked..etc), so that we can remember & others can find s copy themselves or borrow amongst us.
I’m still trying to iron out the lil quirks with it, but I think I’ll send out a mass text about it soon :)
Is it bad that I don’t feel as if I’ve had a break from work, when I had 3 weeks off & have only worked 5 days in 2 weeks?
I think it is.
I think it’s ‘cause work never left me alone… It was always there, pestering me to pay attention to it with it’s drama & disorganization. With it thinking I’d put up with it’s crap and fix all of the mistakes. With it’s constent demands & forgetfullness.
I look forward to my new job. With it’s steady hours & how it’ll leave me alone on my off time ‘cause they schedule properly. How it’ll give me a place to work out and loads of room to grow into better jobs within the company. With it’s steady increase in wages & it’s benefits (eventually). With the fact that it is a world-wide organization and has been established for a loooonnnggg time, so it’s worked out the kinks.
I’m so ready to feel appreciated, acknowledged and respect in a carear!

-How when he’s having a bad dream, if I stroke his hair, or hold his hand he calms down and sleeps on peacefully
-How he quietly bites his tongue when it comes to how I need a new job with more hours & better pay ‘cause he knows this is the carear I’ve chosen
