I haven't had that really strong feeling to quit my job lately...until today. It had a lot to do with knowing I have another job I could take (the 5 month contract job) even if it isn't a perfect job. But as someone pointed out, I have been working 22 straight days so far without a day off so that probably is affecting my patience level. I told my boss about my other job today because I am asking for Thursday off to work at the other place. He didn't mind. In fact he thought it was great that I was using my time productively and earning more money for my mortgage payoff plan of which he is very supportive. I also did it to hint that I have other options. Perhaps I want him to worry that I might leave. He often says that I can't quit until he retires which is 10 years from now. I doubt I will last 10 years at this job.
So, I did not quit today. I thought of my dogs which I need to support and decided to hang in there for at least a little while longer. Then I took my box of new squeaky balls, dog treats, and toys and watched the dogs have some fun. I also got my first paycheck from my weekend job so my budget is officially on the plus side again...at least it will be when I cash the check.
And an update on my sister who is 8 months pregnant and in the hospital with the Swine flu, they have her on anti-viral medication, her fever is under control and she was able to eat today. Hopefully she will recover quickly.
