So……I had an interview today.
What you say? I didn’t know you were looking for a new job you say? Well, lets just say that most of us who work night shift at my job are looking……
So really, this job opportunity just fell in my lap. For those who don’t know, I got laid off last year when I was 7 months pregnant! (Yes, they are shit balls, and I hope they burn in hell).
So, a nurse that I worked with then, has since moved on to another office and they are looking for a nurse. Ironically, (to show you how small a world nursing is in the ATL) I would be replacing the same girl I replaced at the shit balls job. Hmmmmmm.
- It’s a typical 730 to 430 job working at a infertility clinic.
- I must say that I really loved working at the infertility clinic last time around. It was rewarding and fulfilling.
- Not to mention, it’s a day time job.
- Benefits are AWSOME
- It’s a day time job
- Pay is good. Not AWSOME but good. More than I make now.
- Did I mention that it’s a daytime job?
- Pookah would be in daycare all day everyday Monday through Friday.
- I would have to give up working only two nights a week.
- If my house can’t get clean now, how would it get clean if I was working M-F?
- How will I get anything done?????
- I’ll miss my Pookah pumkin terribly.
I thought the interview went well. I put on my happy, I’m professional, and qualified and want this job face. Even though on the inside I was thinking, if you give me the job, great. If you don’t, oh well.
You see, I’m kind of ambivalent. I want the job. But mainly because I am soooooo tired and exhausted from working nights. I just want to be home with my baby EVERY night. Oh course, in a perfect world, I wouldn’t have to work at all. But due to the horror that was 2009( my Annus Horribilis to quote Queen Elizabeth), I don’t have that option. This job would allow us not to live paycheck to paycheck. And I might actually get to catch up, and have some breathing room in the budget. Hey, I might actually have some money to get a pedicure now and then and to get the carpet shampooed by someone other than me( I really don’t do a good job). I might have energy to have sex with my husband. I might find time to be NORMAL.
Oh, I’d miss all my other mommies who are home all day, but ya’ll can’t pay my bills!!!
But hey, they haven’t even offered me the job……..yet.
I keep seeing this on other blogs that I read so I’m stealing the idea for now…..
How far along? 24 weeks 5 days
Total weight gain/loss: 20 pounds
Maternity clothes? I’m about half and half. It’s amazing that most of my sundresses still fit!
Stretch marks? Nope.
Sleep: What is that?
Movement: Lots. Especially at night.
Food cravings: All things not good for me. Stuff like Captain Crunch Cereal, Mc Donald’s, hot dogs from the Varsity…..
Gender: Boy baby!
Labor Signs: None( Thank God)
What I miss: Being able to see my lady parts!
What I am looking forward to: Week 28/3rd trimester.
Milestones: Reaching 24 weeks!
On that note, I must complain.
I know, I know. I feel like an ungrateful hussy for even daring the complain about this miracle that is happening to me. But damn it! It’s not all roses here!
Life sucks at the moment.
We’re poor( yep even with C-Dub’s new better paying job.)
My insurance sucks. ( a whole other issue that will lead me to go political, so I’ll leave that one alone).
My body feels like it’s giving out on me: I’m swelling, heartburn is my constant friend(and gas),I’m having stress incontinence(nice!), and all week, I have been feeling like pure shit.
I can’t sleep. Therefore, I am exhausted. All.the.time.
And my list could go on and on and on.
OK, I just had to complain today. I’ll be better tomorrow.
So today, I had my monthly appointment at the midwife’s office. These appointments are so quick, if I blink I miss them. I saw my favorite midwife/friend today. It’s sooooo wonderful to be taken care of by a friend. I never feel ashamed to tell her anything. But anyway, nothing new, just a heartbeat check. 140s and running strong. I’ve gained enough weight to bump my BMI way up. But hey, what can I do?
Anyway, the BIG anatomy ultrasound is scheduled 3 weeks from now on July 15th. I’ll be 20 + weeks. Almost 21.
Well, I’ve got to go discuss some money issues with the hubby. He’s engaging in some habits I thought I broke him out of at the beginning of our marriage. But I guess not.
I hate confrontations over money.
