Why was this week so hard? It was only 4 days. I came very close to quitting again today. I even went looking for the boss to tell him I was going home. Luckily (or unluckily, I'm not sure) I couldn't find him (he was in the bathroom) and those few extra minutes gave me a chance to think about it. I carpooled today so I would have had to call a taxi and I'm too cheap for that.
I managed to make it through without quitting. I hope next week is better. I can definitely say that once my mortgage is gone, I am not going to last long at this job. I thought I could work there another 5 years or so and build a house but no. Another day like this and I will walk out. Life is too short. I'd rather keep living in my mobile home than keep a job that makes me miserable so that I can buy a house. And it's not like I won't find another job. There are jobs out there. They don't pay as much but at least they are not as frustrating. There are 2 jobs that I thought would fit in to my plans. One was a Home Companion, those are the people that visit the elderly in their own homes and cook, clean and run errands for them so that they can stay independent longer. The other would be pet sitting in the person's home. That would mean feeding and watering some one's animals while they are out of town or at work. Both are part time and flexible. They don't pay well but once my mortgage is paid, I am more interested in liking my job than the money.
Of course I hope to do something creative too. I want to make something and sell it online or locally. I haven't figured out what that thing is yet but if I get a part time job I will have time to explore what I want to make and what will sell. There is a lot of potential there I just haven't figured it out yet.
Anyway, I don't have any big plans for this weekend. Just the usual chores and shuttle the new dog to the vet. It is supposed to be 100 degrees so I will be hiding inside most of the day. And I will try to appreciate my two days of freedom before it's back to work on Monday.
