Good morning dearies! Welcome to the work week! I hope you have your coffee and your smiles ready, it’s going to be a rough one. If your anything like me you have copious amounts of coffee but no smiles to give yet. Check back with me around 10:00, I might have one for you then.
For now my anxiety is sky high and my energy levels are very low.
This week is all about new beginnings. I work for the transportation department of a school district here in Colorado as a school bus assistant and, sadly, our lazy summer days have come to an end. Today we have received our route assignments we are starting to practice. A new year means new kids, a new driver, new hours, and all new rules!
I am afraid that the route I bid will turn out to be bad. I am afraid I will mess up and be labeled a bad assistant. I am afraid that I made the wrong decision.
But just because beginnings are tough doesn’t mean we don’t start, and it doesn’t mean we don’t try to start off right.
This week is also the beginning of a new year for me and my girlfriend. We are going to be celebrating our 13 year anniversary this coming weekend. If I can get my shit together and book a hotel room that is. I also have a ton of cleaning to do in the house and I have to begin packing everything. I’m such a procrastinator.
I do look forward to starting a new year with her, which leads me to the newest new beginning for us.
This week my girlfriend will begin working her new position. For many years we worked together in the same place and the same position, then, last summer, she got a big promotion, which changed everything. Last week she aced another interview and got yet another promotion. I expect everything will change again, especially because now she will be working at a different location.
I am probably being a bit dramatic but I have a hard time with change. I am trying to go into this with positive thoughts. I think this position will make her happier than the one she is in now. Plus it means more money for us which is always good. Unfortunately I can’t shake this nagging feeling of impending doom. I am scared of what the future will bring for us.
But onward and upward, right? The future comes whether we like it or not and it is better to face it head on than to cower and wait for it to find you unaware. I must be brave!
This week is going to be a busy one, as you can see. I have a ton on my plate so please forgive me if I’m not around as much. I may have to put writing on the back burner so I can focus on all the changes. I’m not happy about it though.
But enough about me, what are your plans for the week? Leave a comment to let me know :)
