Just waiting for me to fail

I think it is time for me to start looking for another job. 😦 I didn’t want this to happen now. I need to keep this job until at least June 2016. I’m not quitting. (At least I don’t think so. Time will tell….)  They will have to “let me go”.  The more I think about it, the more I should apply for other jobs NOW. My mind is spinning. How do you answer the “Why were you fired” question during interviews? Lie?  Sigh, I don’t want to think about it. I can’t say the WHY of all this for obvious reasons. It sucks. I guess the plan for now is just to be frugal. I dunno. And keep selling stuff for extra income.

Despite what is going on, I’m still off next week. I wish I could stay in all week. lol. Never gonna happen. Here’s the plan for the week:

Monday: stay in and clean/organize, post any eBay auctions

Tuesday: laundromat, donate clothes to LGBT shop and take other clothes to the consignment shop

Wednesday: take my dog to the park or go to my favorite park alone. Haven’t decided. I would do both, but I like to get to parks early (9-ish) so I can’t do both.

Thursday: I’m dropping my dog off to get groomed then I will head to the gym for a spin class.

Friday: stay in. Maybe mow the front yard? Not sure.

Nothing exciting. I’m going to be worrying about losing my job. I won’t let it take over my week, but I will be checking my work email to see whether my manager emails me for a meeting. This sucks. Have I said how much this sucks? And no one fully understands the issue so I have no one to talk to about it. You have to work there to understand.

I’ve decided not to donate clothes to The Junior League at this time. I may save those clothes for later or I may just give everything to the LGBT store. I wanted to support The JL because it is a good cause, but I don’t want to make all those stops.

I still haven’t cancelled my gym membership. The truth is when I have to mow the lawn (takes TWO hours), I don’t feel the need to go the gym. I can burn 600+ calories mowing my lawn. So why go to the gym?  I usually take two days to mow my lawn so that is two days of exercise. I used to hate mowing my lawn until I realized how many calories it burned. But when it gets cooler, I’m going to want to go to the gym for a class or two. So for now, I’m thinking about keeping my membership. Some of it depends on my class experience on Thursday. If it REALLY sucks, I will probably ask the front desk how I go about canceling my membership.

This week I…

I’m rooting for Serena and Federer. Unfortunately, I won’t get to see Serena play tomorrow because I’ll be out running errands. Can’t wait for the US Open. One day I’m going to New York for that.

Movies of the week: Captivated: The Trials of Pamela Smart (documentary)

Books of the week:  I finished reading Yes Please by Amy Poehler. Good book. I was pleasantly surprised. A better book is Not Fade Away: A Memoir of Senses Lost and Found by Rebecca Alexander. I’m going to finish that this weekend. If you like memoirs at all, you’ll love that book.

I just started reading Something Must Be Done About Prince Edward County: A Family, a Virginia Town, a Civil Rights Battle by Kristen Green. (long title – whew!)

Now I’m going to make a mix CD of Tori Kelly’s music and read. I might get some cleaning in there too.  #TypicalFridayNight.
