But- I am le tired

I am exhausted.

It seems like every couple of weeks or so my job just kicks my ass. Its like there is so much to do but not nearly enough time to do it in so I spend 10+ hours trying to squeeze it all in.

The last two days have been 9am-7pm + my 45 minute (each way) commute and you've got some hella long days. I've been getting home at 8pm and going to bed by 10pm and not waking until almost 8 am because I am so pooped!

Last night I bummed myself out because I failed Nablopomo because the laptop was turned off, I was ready for bed and I didn't want to wait for it to power up! Oh well though- it was getting so boring to try to think of something to say every single day and I'm sure it was getting boring to read.
Today at least there will be some relief. I am leaving here at 4pm and I'm not looking back! Then I won't be coming in until after 11am tomorrow but trust me I will be in the office until at least 9pm. We are hosting Thanksgiving dinner for our residents and their families tomorrow night and we have so many people that we have to do two seatings. One at 4:30 pm and one at 6:30 pm so its going to be a LONG day tomorrow even with coming in late.

But the end of the week is nigh- Friday should be a very managable day and the weekend will be much needed, much appreciated, and much deserved! Then only two "normal" work days one day at another community and four days of for Thanksgiving.


I gotta be honest- I'm looking forward to the time off but this year I am not neccessarily looking forward to Thanksgiving. It just seems like there is never enough time to do what you want to do, the family things are always exhausting, and right now I just want to climb into bed and pull the covers up over my head.

I'll feel better when the weather perks up and tomorrow night is behind me AND when my MUCH NEEDED Saturday hair apt. rolls around.

For now I'm off to slice apples for social.

Ladies- do you ever feel like you and your sig. other are living in completely different universes?

Not the general Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus bru haha - but the idea that you are both under the same roof and just can't make a connection. He goes left you want to go right- he wants to go out you want to stay in, you want to watch a movie, he wants to watch some end of the world drama on the History channel. Your sending out quiet signals that your starved for affection and he misses them one by one by one.

That's how I've been feeling the last several days. I've felt it before and I know that it passes but right now I feel as though I could slip right out the front door and drive away and Ben wouldn't even notice until he came out of his computer room for a smoke. I'm half tempted to put my theory to the test....

Le sigh.

One of my biggest character flaws is that I crave attention . An ex boyfriend once said to me during a conversation long after we broke up; that he had forgotten how much attention I needed - and he didn't mean in a lavish me with gifts kind of way. I desire to constantly feel as though I am at the center of ones universe- that my someone is at my beck and call - but on the transverse of that - I subconsciously want to be able to shut them off when I'm feeling the need to be alone. Its an evil cycle and a trait I've tried desperately over the past 6 years to shake off. It really can make me quite ugly at times.


This weekend has been uneventful - but I supppose thats a good thing considering the holidays are abreast.

The coming week should be nothing short of hectic. Late nights Monday and Tuesday and an EXTREMELY late night Thursday for my family Thanksgiving party at work. I'm finally scheduling my much-needed reblonding session for this weekend as well as a mani, eyebrow waxing, and tanning session. I'm in need of a bit of pampering.

Anyhow I'm off. I hope everyone's weekends were great!

Much Love,

Miss Amber Lane
