for some reason i’m in a bit of a funk today. i don’t know what the deal is but it’s got to go. i feel tired and somewhat irritable. perhaps it is PMS? not sure, never had that problem. i’ve been taking prometrium for the past week so maybe that’s really what it is. ugh.
on another note, i worked at the local ice cream shop last night. the owner and i have known each other for ages. in fact, our husbands are business partners for the snow plowing season. anyway, it was very different. she needs some adult help during the evening a few nights a week so she can take care of things at home. no problem, i’m always willing to help out a friend in need. i tried to keep an open mind and positive attitude about the whole thing. the employees were very friendly for the most part and amused themselves by trying to show me the ropes.
the thing is, i have mixed emotions about the whole thing. on one hand, i’ll be earning some much needed extra cash while helping out a friend. on the other hand, spring is fast approaching and being there means i won’t be at home tending to the lawn business needs. and really my attitude stinks and i know it. i haven’t punched a time clock in nearly a decade. in fact, i was embarressed to have to ask one of the girls how to do it. she kinda looked at me like i was crazy. i don’t want to tell anyone what i do in real life because i don’t want them to look at me like i’m better than them and why should i be there. i don’t want them to think of my any differently than any of the other girls.
well, anyway, on a lighter note, the new fire hall is open! Hubby has spent the last week moving non-essential “stuff” to the new hall and purchasing supplies, tables & chairs, washer/dryer, etc. there is no official date of when the transfer will be complete, but hopefully it will be soon. chief is really dragging this on as long as possible. non-official – you didn’t hear this from me – i’ll deny ever knowing this – rumor has it that he’s going to get fired. this comes from pretty reliable township officials. we’ll see what happens. in my opinion, it’s long overdue. but that’s a story for another day….
