Today was a Rough One

Despite this week being a four day workweek, it felt super long, with today being the worst. I was cranky most of the morning and felt like the smallest thing was going to make me start crying.

Thankfully my coworker could sense my mood and was able to make the afternoon go smoother.

The main thing that had set me off was a meeting my manager set up at the end of the day yesterday for someone to come look at our money machines today, while he had the day off. He didn’t leave me any notes about what the issues he’d been having were, so when the technician asked me what the problem was, I couldn’t tell her.

I tried to get a hold of my manager for more information but he did not answer the phone. The tech asked me whether she should replace the machine, which was just done a few days ago, or if she should go since it seemed to be working fine for me. So I sent her home, which of course my manager did not approve of.

My coworker who knew more of the situation was kind enough to call the technician back and wrote down some information about what was happening.

I do not do well in situations where I don’t know what I’m talking about and I know I would not have been able to call them without breaking down.

Hopefully I’ll be in a better mood tomorrow. But unfortunately I only have one day off before going back to work on Sunday.

Where Did The Summer Go?

Welcome to September. I really don’t know where the summer went. It’s been a busy month at work getting all the teachers ready to go back to school but we’re starting to see things slow down now.

This weekend is my boyfriend’s birthday and I can’t believe I havn’t bought him anything yet! That’s what I will be doing today. Thankfully I have some gift ideas.

Besides birthday gifts, there are a few other things I plan on looking for while I’m out. But while I want to go out and buy all the things, at the same time, I don’t want to spend any money.

I’m still trying to pay off my car. I originally planned on having my loan paid off at the end of May which would have been one year since I bought it. But now it’s September and I’m still paying. I only have about $2000 left to go which is really good compared to most people. But I’m behind on my personal goal. I might just take some money out of my savings and get it over with.

I also just found out my cousin is getting married at the end of October and I really want to fly home so I can attend. Flying in Canada is very expensive. Flights are about $600 to fly across Canada so that’s another reason I don’t want to spend too much right now. I haven’t bought my tickets yet but I have some flight alerts set up to see if any deals come my way.

I had planned on going home in October already for Thanksgiving (although I hadn’t really told anyone that yet) and had been watching prices around that time. They only went down $100 during the time I was watching and then quickly went back up. I’m scared that if I wait too long they’ll go way up so I don’t know how long I should wait until I buy.

That’s all my news for right now. I am going to try and start posting more now but you’ve all heard that before.
