it’s all a blur!
the last couple of weeks have been a real emotion drainer. if it isn’t one thing, it seems like it’s another. my daily habits have dramatically changed and they have changed because it just feels like there is so much change going on.
i think it all stems from work. things feel like they have been crazy busy lately and i’m starting to feel swamped. it’s not the kind of swamped that i felt a few months ago where it got to the point where i almost couldn’t function, but it is starting to feel a little overwhelming again.
they say that with this poor economy that it is a real struggle to find a new job and people are worried about their job security. that may all be true, but man, i wonder if employers see this as an opportunity and decide that it’s time to start whipping the chain.
it hasn’t been all bad. there have been some nice high points lately too. a week or two ago, my thursday night volleyball team won playoffs. it was my first season with them and i don’t want to point fingers or anything, but what was the only thing that changed this season? =P they say that it has been a four season drought since they have won playoffs. so it was nice to be able to help the team win and there was some good volleyball played as well.
i also got the opportunity to go bowling last week. that was fantastic, but i went bowling with a bunch of people who are all phenomenal bowlers. i was at the low end of the bowling crowd, but i still bowled my average of around 140 or so.
not a whole lot else going on, though. work is work. we’ve got a new dog staying with us for the night. he’s just crashing at our place after getting neutered. poor guy doesn’t feel quite the same and has thrown up a few times today. i was fortunate enough to catch him before he threw up and had him go outside the first time and…get this…i caught his vomit in a paper towel the second time. i know that that should really gross me out, but it all seemed rather normal to me. i guess that’s what happens after you’ve fostered 20+ dogs… i’m just glad that he didn’t throw up on the carpet.
