Talking to myself

I apologize for all the technical issues my blog has had this week. I tried to get all fancy and got ahead of my technical knowledge. Right now as I'm typing this if you try to go to my blog, you are getting all kinds of page not found error messages. It's all my fault. I'm sorry. Hopefully it will be fixed soon. Until then, I'm talking to myself. It's been an interesting week though so I wanted to write. Hopefully one of these days, someone will be able to read it.

I started off this week by starting a new job on Monday. After a few frustrating hours of work, I went for coffee with a friend. That was definitely the highlight of my day. Tuesday I had another frustrating shift on the new job, and my oldest daughter had her first cheerleading practice. Wednesday I volunteered at my kids school. I usually volunteer from 8 to noon, and never have I wished so much to stay for the whole day, but no, I had to go home and work. By the end of my shift on Wednesday I wanted to throw the phone out the window (because it is the instrument responsible for bringing the hellish job into my home). Thursday I woke up and felt nauseous. The thought of putting on that headset made my stomach turn. My husband, being the prince that he is, said "if it's making you that upset, don't do it, find a different job", but I was determined to keep doing it at least until I found something else. I logged on for my shift, and my software wasn't working. I called the help desk and after some mediocre help, I got hung up on. I decided that it wasn't worth the grief. The work is bad enough, to have that much trouble just getting on the system to do the work was beyond wrong. So I decided to go out and find a different job, and I did, just like that. This one is at a company that the customers are happy to be there. Two new jobs in a week, it's a personal record.
