that seems kind of stupid. but that's how it's been.
i've started a new medication in addition to my life-saving pristiq: vyvanse. it's an amphetamine. i was really nervous about taking it but so far i'm not having any weird side effects - i don't even feel like i'm hopped up on amphetamines. i'm not sure how much 'better' i feel, but i don't feel worse so that's great.
we got a puppy. she's very small and very rambunctious and very annoying. her name is alice (allie) and they told us she's a chihuahua-mini pinscher mix. we think they're wrong.
|yes, we got her a wicket doll to gnaw on. may the fourth be with you!|
|she's teething. i have a feeling this has something to do with that fact.|
|alice on one of her many walks|
|on another.... walk. taking a roll around in the grass break.|
i'm very frustrated with work. i'm so over my schedule - i hate the 12-8:30pm on monday through wednesday. i want to work days like a typical person. i want to be able to cook after work; stop at the supermarket and pick up the night's ingredients; meet friends for dinner or coffee. hell, i want to eat three 'normal' meals a day. my eating schedule is all fucked up. and i'm usually tired - i can't get my body used to this schedule.
i mentioned to my boss that i want to switch back to days and she said that something should change within the next couple of months. that was about a month ago. i love my job - just not my hours. my family is a priority to me - and i can't take care of my family the way i'm used to with this schedule.
i did a bit of looking online to see what's out there with my credentials. and found a posting for a job that is $12K a more than i'm making. it's with a private company - not a non-profit - but that's a huge pay jump. HUGE. it makes me think, and i don't like thinking ;)
