ostarella: (Why me)
[personal profile] ostarella
Had our first snow that stayed yesterday. Stayed in that it didn't melt as soon as it landed this time, and there's still some snow in the sheltered spots. Thankfully just a 'dusting', but depressing regardless. Every winter I find myself hating it more and more. They say we're supposed to get more snow than usual this year, which is bad, but it typically means slightly warmer temps, which is okay. Not good, but okay.

At work, I'd put in for the Saturday after Thanksgiving off, since my son will be home for the holiday for the first time in 12 years. So what did they do? Scheduled me for Saturday but gave me the following Tuesday off. So when I go in to work tonight, I have to get that straightened out. God...

Tomorrow I'm going down to a neighboring town and put in some applications - a couple part-time, a couple full-time. I'd prefer part-time, but I need to build up a nest egg again. The last few months have been really, really expensive, for a variety of reasons. I just need to get out of the job I have now. When you start getting depressed the day before having to go to work, it's definitely time to look for something else.

Saturday was the ninth anniversary of my mom's death. In January, she would have been 100 years old. You'd think I'd be okay with things by now, but there are so many days when I just really, really miss having her and Dad here. And of course, now I'm starting to wonder who we're going to lose next year. My oldest brother in '83, my dad in '93, my mom in '03 - I'm hoping the trend has ended, but my siblings are 73, 72, and 59, and of course, I'm not immune.

Yeah, just a crap day full of crap thoughts...
