So Iâ€™ve been taking a bit too much liberty with my down time; instead of taking the opportunity to learn more and increase my skill set, Iâ€™ve just been *sigh* lazy. Now that thereâ€™s always stuff to do within a certain time frame, Iâ€™ve felt much more productive and valuable. I realize that comes with the territory of actually doing something, but itâ€™s been helping my attitude toward the job. While my last job was certainly hella fun, this one can be too, in its own right, I just have to step up to the plate.I skipped class and opted for practice at home because we needed to go to the grocery store. Having a stash of Good Food is kind of a priority, since itâ€™s too soon after a W30 for me to feel confident winging it. Iâ€™ve got stuff to make dinner with, and thereâ€™s supplies to make lunches and such, I just need to spend some time on Tuesday cooking.I got some practice in while the husband contacted his contract agency to say â€œget me a new job or I will.â€ Heâ€™s been super bogged down by tasks at work that he has no time to do the â€œextraâ€ stuff that heâ€™s been asked to do (and they wonâ€™t let him charge over-time), so heâ€™s paranoid that heâ€™s going to lose his job before his contract is up, even though he wants a new job anyway. I really wish that he would actively look and apply himself (like he used to bug me about all the time two years ago), but instead, heâ€™s passively letting his contract agency find something for him and posting his resume in places. He HATES this job because itâ€™s not a full-time employment gig; heâ€™s a contract worker. Iâ€™m sure that if he really tried, heâ€™d find something worth it. But alas, canâ€™t make him do anything that heâ€™s not willing to do. I might have to start looking for positions that he might be interested in/qualified for. I mean, thatâ€™s how I found my jobs. Sure, the openings were quite random and lucky, but I tried my hardest when I applied for them.Anyway, the catalytic converter on my car is busted and still wonâ€™t start, so Iâ€™m driving the Protege5. Thankfully, itâ€™s warm again, so Iâ€™m not freezing without the heat. Weâ€™re ordering a replacement and gonna stop by the husbandâ€™s parentsâ€™ house over the weekend, where his dad can cut out the old one and weld in the new one. I also got all my tax paperwork, so thatâ€™ll probably happen this weekend as well. Iâ€™d like to get it done ASAP and while I still have money in my checking, in case I owe money. I also updated some progress measurements in the beginning. Yay progress! Quote LEVEL 1 REBEL Link to comment
