just 60 minutes
That’s all I ask, one hour in which nothing goes wrong, no one comes to me with a problem, nothing crashes and nobody complains. And no, lunch doesn’t count. Ev IM’d me earlier, “work is killing you, isn’t it?” — not quite… but close. I just have to get used to the ins and outs of this temporary position. At least it better damn well be temporary.
The only thing keeping me going is knowing that my manager/friend is going in to have her baby this morning and that no matter how rough I think my day might be, she’s definitely going to have a more interesting day than I. And I’ve got some new music to get me through the day. It’s also “Day One” of something for me, and I’ll see how long that lasts. Also ordering from Amazon grocery is interesting, like Costco but with better choices. I’m not sure how I’m going to get through 120 bags of tea, but it’s really good tea.
I must head out before lunch and get a card for my friend, his father just passed away. As much as I don’t keep in touch with my parents, though I know I should, I don’t know how I would handle them just not being there anymore and I know that he was close to his father, so he must be devastated.
