Holy cow, what a day. I get so tired of asking Drew to do stuff over and over and over and over. I feel like I am talking to myself... So frustrating. The baby is sick today. cold, runny nose, ear infection, not sleeping, what a tough day for him.
Well Chris is doing much better on his meds. We also joined a gym, so he is exercising regularly. All in all, much better. I think we still have a ways to go, but time will tell me what I need to know.
So, I asked for another raise at work..... We had already done this at contract negotiation time. But when I got my paycheck, my raise only gave me $5 a WEEK in extra takehome pay. I thought that that was crap. So I asked for $50 a week takehome and we will see what happens. When I told her about it being $1 a day, she was shocked. She thought it would be much more than that. I told her that I thought it would be much higher as well. So I'm just going to sit back and see what they say. But deep down... I know I am worth every bit of a $50 increase each week.
Okay, so I'm doing much better now. I don't want to drag up all of the drama from the last week of my life, but here's the gist. My husband has OCD and tourette's, and his meds were way off. He was acting very strange, but we nipped it in the perverbial bud. So now I am trying to enjoy the last two days of vacation that I have.
My newscast just did a three minute spot on a dog that died. It was the pet of the Chief Meteorologist (Gary) and was on TV with him all of the time. Gary will be taking a few days off, which sucks b/c he is by far the most accurate meteorologist in town. But it is sad that the dog died. Poor Gary.
When I lived in a Pitt, I used to watch the news every night. I would watch the weather and then go to sleep. Well then they got a new sportscaster, and oh man was he hot. So then I started watching the sports section also. But I didn't care about the sports at all, so I muted the tv and just watched the hot sports guy. Man I miss that news station......
So contract negotiations are on Thursday. I'm going out to dinner with my boss for a review and negotiations. I'm so pumped. They never low-ball me on overtime pay or anything else really, but I'm still nervous about my raise. I'm cutting back my hours from 51 hours to 47-48ish. Not a dramatic cut, but it's all evening hours, so I will actually SEE my husband. I've heard that this is a good thing.
Holy bejeepers. It's been FOREVER since I have written last. I missed a month. A MONTH!!! How is that even possible. Work has been very busy, but still.
It's time to renew my contract at work. I am cutting my hours to 45 base, plus overtime. I'm looking forward to seeing what they offer for the new year. I would like them to start paying for my cell phone, because I use it for them ALL the time. I had to switch to a free incoming plan because my boss would always call my cell phone even when I was at their house. That is fine, but it would be nice if they would cover it. We are going on a trip next week, so I'm guessing we will negotiate after we get back.
