So it's been a little while since I've updated. What do you expect? It's the holiday season. (For those offended by my lack of the use of "Christmas", you need to reevaluate your priorities in life.)
Even though I'm looking forward to presents, fireside cuddling, and honey-baked ham, I'll be glad when life goes back to normal. Between the extra work hours and sleepless nights, I've been on my last nerve for a few weeks now. Overtime is now mandatory, and as people get irritated and quit, we have to take up the slack... and not get anything to show for it. All I want is to be able to relax and enjpy the holidays for the first time in nearly 4 years... but is that a possibility? No.
And that's not the worst part. My boyfriend and I have been at eachother's throats. Between caring for his sick mother, me taking work home with me, and both of us aggrivated by the lack of time spent together (usually 3 hours twice a week... maybe a whole 24 hours on the weekend), our stress levels are through the roof-and every small thing turns into a quarrel. We have some good moments, but it's been a rough haul.
I'm barely finished with my shopping, haven't even started baking, and am too tired to bother getting things I've been neglecting finished. Hopefully things will calm down... and I'll buy myself a camcorder... so I can begin to enjoy life again after the 26th.
