it's the very last day of 2010

I haven't been blogging enough this year to do a recap post. What's to recap? I worked. I slept. I spent more time being depressed than I care to remember or discuss. I was angry a lot. There were points where I didn't like me much and points where I didn't like anyone around me much and points well..... let's just say that I may have legitimately earned the nickname "Cranky MacCrankerson" from my better half.

I have made a short list of resolutions for the upcoming year. That is a post in draft that will probably post sometime tomorrow.

I am at work tonight. Another hour and a half before I get to go home. I am ready for it. I work tomorrow too and then I'm off Sunday and Monday. I will be glad for those two days off because I am exhausted and it has been incredibly busy here all week and I just need a break. Even if it is just for a couple of days. I am a bit upset that my request for this past Wednesday and Thursday off was not even acknowledged. I can understand it not being able to be fulfilled for one reason or another but to not even acknowledge it really is in poor taste.

I put in my request for my vacation. I'm going to resubmit it again tonight with my drop because that hasn't been acknowledged either. It's still sitting in her box. I know she hasn't been feeling well but this is bordering on just.... perhaps, I should not rant.

My legs hurt. I've been on my feet constantly for the past 6 days.

I think I'm going to change the channel on the breakfast room tv and watch some of the festivities from Times Square. One day I'd like to go there and see the ball drop in person. Or to Sydney and see the fireworks over the opera house.

-sigh-

Out with the old...

Merry Christmas

After staying up until 2 (because certain people didn't want to go to sleep) and then getting back up at 7 (ignoring the whispers since about 6), making a full breakfast and cooking my annual Christmas lasagna... I am now at work. It's only a 4 hour shift so you aren't hearing a single complaint from me. Plus, it's supposed to snow tonight and I'm off work tomorrow so I'm super excited.

Santa was good to the children (and the adults!) at my house this year. I hope your day has been merry and bright.

the last few days...

I have (barely) managed to finish my Christmas shopping, keep all of my appointments, and work everyday. I did find the time to go get my nails done today since that was Chris's present to me. I enjoyed taking an hour and a half out of the busy day and just enjoy something that was strictly about me.

I did not manage to get my Christmas cards sent out or get my baking done.

I'm at work tonight until 11 and then I work a 4 hour shift tomorrow (7pm to 11pm). I intend to get the presents finished up tonight, watch the kids open them tomorrow while sipping some coffee and then I'm going to cook so that we can eat a wonderful meal before I go to work. I'm off on Sunday so I will clean up the house then and get myself semi-organized for the upcoming new year.

I hope to regularly blog during 2011 as there are several upcoming life-changing events that will be taking place (particularly during the early part of the year.)

this has the potential to be bad

I have been giving lots of thought recently to a variety of things in my life and I'm not really sure where my thoughts are leading me except to more questions. These are questions for which I do not have answers. 

I miss the days when I blogged so openly and freely. I wish I could return to those days. I see what everyone else does with their space and I'm like "I used to be like that." I seem to have lost the ability for words to flow properly and coherently.

I don't really know what to do about it either.

It's been awhile since I have done one of these although my offline gratitude practice remains on point. In no particular order, here ar...
