32154Nervous about new job
- Feb 1, 2008Hi all,
I'm writing this here because I don't really have anyone in my "real
life" I could say this to, without either a: sounding like a real nut,
or b: possibly making them feel guilty.
I'm starting a new job tomorrow -- had the training today. It's just
market research, it's not hard, but it means that weekends I'm going
to be away from my furbabies for 8 hours on Saturdays, and 7 hours on
Sundays, plus 4 hours on some weekdays. I'll only be about 20 minutes
walk away, but I'll be away, and it's the first time in a long time
that I'll be working weekends away from home.
As some of you may know, last year I was a substitute teacher. I'm
going to be doing that again this year too, so that means that some
weekdays, I could be away from 8am to about 9pm.
I haven't been away from my heartkitties for so long since they've
been born 5 1/2 years ago, and they were born with this condition, so
they are sicker now than they were then. But because they are sick, I
need the extra money ... but on the other hand, what's money if I'm
missing out on spending precious time with them?
There is no good solution ... I have to do this job, I know this, and
I'm not even worried about how good I'll be at it ... just about the
time spent away from my cats. Am I totally nuts? Because it feels a
bit that way!
Just had to get all this out there, to people who I hope will
understand ... and if you don't, then it means that I *am* nuts and
I'll try to just "get over it"!
Thanks for reading this late-night rant :)

murmur) and Tuppenny (3/6 murmur).
