My boyfriend went to his viewings on Thursday and liked what he saw. Later that day we found out that we got to the town house! Move in day is this Saturday, the 12th. So quick! But at the same time, it’s taking forever. I’ve had almost everything packed for days now. I just need a few more boxes so I can pack my dishes, pots and pans, and some bathroom stuff. The sucky part is, I have to work on Saturday. It’s a sale day so there is no way that I will be able to not work. So I have to work a crazy busy (hopefully) day for 8 hours, then I have to go help move/unpack stuff that night so I will have a place to sleep and dishes to eat food with. It’s going to be a crazy weekend. Thank GOD I have Sunday off. I should be able to get most of my stuff unpacked that day. But then I also have to find time to cook some food because I have two 11 hour shifts next week.
I seriously feel like I’m going to die from stress. There have been days over the last week or two where I thought I was just going to start crying at work because I’m so overwhelmed with everything. I really need like a month off, or maybe even a job where I can just sit at a desk and work on a computer. Working irregular shifts is really not how my body works and it’s slowly killing me. I’ve been working a lot by myself lately too which is making it extremely difficult for me to do my job properly. I’m behind on everything and feel like I have no one to help me. I haven’t been able to eat proper meals because I don’t have anyone to cover my breaks. I have been working on what was supposed to be my days off because there is no one else to work for me.
But, that’s enough complaining. Things are going to work themselves out. I just need to get my home life back under control which will happen shortly; then I will work on getting my work life sorted out. There is no point complaining about things I have the power to change. That was something that always bothered me about other people, and now here I am being a whiner.
I feel bad for not posting in a while. I kept thinking about it but haven’t had time or anything to talk about. I’m the type of person who likes routine. And lately, my life has been so unstable. My work life got even more crazy over the last month or two. I’ve been given some new responsibilities which is great, but now I feel like I’m running the store on my own. I only see my manager about once a week or less now because we have to run two stores. One thing that I’m very excited about is that I get to make the schedule for both stores. I’ve always wanted to make the schedule since my first job of working at the movie theatre. My first schedule has been posted and I haven’t had any complaints from my team which is a good sign. I’m a very organized person so I think this is the perfect task for me. I went out and bought a new binder to I can keep myself organized. I would hate to schedule someone for a shift they told me they could not work.
Besides the turmoil at work, my home life is also about to be disrupted. My boyfriend found out that he has to be out of his apartment by the end of May. We have been talking about living together for a while now so we thought this would be a good time. However, I love where I live. It’s the perfect place for me to be able to get to work. The rooms are big. I like my view. My deck is awesome. But it’s only a one bedroom so it would be way too small for the two of us to live comfortably. I set out the task for my boyfriend to find a place for the two of us that is still within walking distance of my work place. To be honest, this is a very difficult task because there aren’t too many places for rent around here. But he managed to set up a viewing for two town houses on Thursday. It would be exciting to get a town house. I’ve never lived in one before and I think it would make me feel even more like a grown up haha.
However, moving right now throws another issue into the mix. My parents are coming to visit for a week at the end of May. Their flights are booked and we have some hotels booked for a trip through the mountains. I’m really hoping we can get a place with a move-in date of May 1st or sooner. I want to be all unpacked and settled into a new place before they come to visit. I want my place to look perfect for them. They have never stayed in a place that was mine for a night before and I want it to look like a real home. If we can’t move until June, that will mean my boyfriend will be unable to come on the mountain trip with us which would be pretty disappointing for everyone. The rental place said they have a place available for the middle of April but there are a ton of people who have viewings set up. I will have to cross my fingers that it’s suitable for the two of us and that no one snags it before us.
