I realized I'm kind of in a panic over only working 12 hours a week and I feel like I need to figure out a way to be able to work more hours because if I don't then...something bad will happen....except I could look at it as-- wow I can work part time for the rest of this year and working part time is something I never thought would be possible.
I mean, I'm slightly worried it will be Dec 6th and I'll hear I have to see another doctor to get cleared to go back to work but that is different than feeling like I'm doing something wrong by only being cleared to work 12 hours
Progress! Make sure to write down a list of any related symptoms or issues to give to the doctor.
OMG has anyone seen my motivation? I have just unable to get myself into a productive mode today.
Hi ND—I might have borrowed it this morning but it just ran out so sorry! Not sure how to refill the tank!
Poor Brendon. This has been the worst visit to NY for him. Was supposed to be a week or two at most. Then major software issue to deal with, then Covid, then Covid rebound, now a hurricane that will travel up the I-95 route for the next 5 days or so. So 7 weeks now, and no idea when he can leave. Considering flying him down in a couple days so he can deal with stuff but he wouldn't have his truck. Life be complex. But he is negative again!
I was pretty motivated until I burned my frittata and now I'm filled with existential pessimism.
However, since the problem occurred because I haven't properly figured out how to use the new stove, it did motivate me to find the stove's online manual and figure out the stuff that's been bedeviling me.
(It's a double oven and changing the settings is arcane and requires scrolling through a barely visible computer list with extremely non-intuitive controls. 2 is up! 5 is select! Obviously!)
Have you tried caffeine in lieu of actual motivation? Being jittery may be the solution.
Had difficulty getting Mr. S to bed last night. Probably not helped by his morning nap and a brief power outage. He went to school and had soccer afterwards, so we'll see what happens.
Have you tried caffeine in lieu of actual motivation?
Wait, are you suggesting that caffeine ISN'T actual motivation? I might have to really reconsider some of my choices.
Hurricanes are scary. Now they are talking Cat 5, which is well past where I would leave if I was there. My brother and family, and my sister live in Bonita Springs which is just south of where it is coming ashore and they are talking up to 18' surge. My brother lives in a manufactured home, and they have said 190 mph gusts have been reported, and of course tornados all across the state. Nothing I can do. Although they are all in mandatory evacuation zones, they stayed. Send the ~ma please, for all the Floridians.
Very scary Laura! Two of my main coworkers are in the Tampa area and were sending emails earlier this week prepping for not having power or access….
