The past couple months have been an interesting and rough ride. I got my place back to myself (wahoo!) and I now get to enjoy the single-by-myself-life again. I know that sounds sad, but it's when I'm the happiest. It's all part of being an introvert. Don't misunderstand me, I still have a social life, but I do like to go home and have the place to myself, and there's nothing wrong with that. On top of getting my place back, I also quit my job. I couldn't work at a place that would rather keep an ex-convict embezzler who has control issues and makes people's lives that she can't control a living hell on the payroll, than a person who has been loyal to the company, never lied about their past (because there isn't one), and did a damn good job. So I said screw that and found me a new job. Once the word got out that I had quit, I didn't exactly get the best reception from my fellow employees, and it made it that much easier to leave. Especially when I was taken out to lunch and told how much I am appreciated and how they wish me luck at the new job, and then three hours later kick me out of the office and don't let me finish out my two weeks. I'm ok with it. It's just kind of a shitty thing to do. On the bright side I did get to have six days off which was awesome since I hadn't taken any real time off the entire year.
The next week I start my new job and it's not as advertised at all, I have a complete melt down after the first day. The melt down included having my youngest sister tell me she wants to have nothing to do with me anymore, so there goes seeing my nephew ever again. This comes on top of having my other sister do the same thing to me a month earlier (I'm pretty sure they're in cahoots). And neither can really give me a straight answer as to why they chose to do this. All I can say is it hurt like a bitch.
Anyway, so I make it through a horrible week of dealing with a job I'm not liking and the residual feelings of knowing my sisters hate me, and then I get an offer to interview at another place. Hell yes! So I do the interview and spend the weekend in my head hoping it will all work out. I go to work on Monday with the hope that I will hear back from this other job and they will have offered it to me. I get home and lo and behold there is an email offering me the job! So I quit the other one, accept the new one and start the new job on Wednesday. So far it's a pretty good fit, I'm only three days in, but I haven't wanted to puke from stress, so I figure that's a good thing.
Honestly I have never felt so low and so high over the past couple months. The highs have been amazing and the lows have been pretty low. If it weren't for the amazing friends I have (and you know who you are), I don't know that I'd still be here with my sanity intact. I love you guys, and thank you from the bottom of my heart for putting up with me and my craziness. It means the world to me.
