Spring Cleaning

Written on 6:33 AM by Sarah

Well, tomorrow's my last day here. Can't say I'm sad. I've spent the whole week planning what I'll do with my free time. Too bad I wasted my Spring Break week in the office so I still have school starting back up this Saturday. Monday morning, however, will be the start of a new journey. Next week, I makeover the house.

I get focused on projects and a little OCD with them, but that's how I am. I've been sitting with these boxes all over the place for over a year now. John and I have never had the time to actually unpack everything or even decorate the walls with all the stuff we brought from our seperate lives. I'm excited about next week. It'll be the frst time we get to see how well our tastes actually mesh (not that I'm girly to begin with).

I'm particularly happy about the prospect of finally organizing my desk into something I can sit and write at. It's been a while. I can never hope to be a published author if I can't even set up a proper work station!

Am I Being Too Nice?

It seems they haven't found anyone to replace me yet and Friday is suposed to be my last day. However, I was asked to stay another week to give them more time. I accepted the offer since my fingerprinting for the Board of Ed takes ten-forteen days to process before I can tutor. I only had plans to clean up the house and work on my novel. I guess I can give up forty hours of my Spring Break to working instead. :/

Kinda sad though that I caved in. I really don't want to be here any more.

Stupidity Can Go Either Way
Golf Course Florida, USA
Customer: “Excuse me. Do you have any left-handed golf balls?”
Me: “Excuse me?”
Customer: “I’m left-handed, and I need a left-handed ball. I don’t want my balls curving to the right all the time.”
Me: “All the balls are the same. They’re round, and they don’t have a hand preference.”
Customer: “Don’t f*** with me. I already had to search through all your clubs for a left-handed one, so where’s your left-handed balls?”
Me: “…the dark green and the orange balls are left-handed.”
Customer: “See? Was that so hard?”
Me: *facepalm*

I Quit!

I did it. I put in my two weeks this week and it felt so good. I know there are people all around me dying to get a job but I'm happy to be unemployed for a little while. If everything works out right, I should get an actual Spring Break. Something I haven't known for eight years. Before you ask, I put money aside first. My bills will be paid. But right now, I need a vacation. I'm stressed to the edge of cracking and I'd rather drop the mundane office job than see my grades suffer.

In a word: Relief. That's my week. Though it's pouring rain and still in the 50's this early April, I couldn't be happier.

I hope John will relax once I've secured another job and he sees how much cleaner the house is.
