I have been a total mooch the last couple of days. I’ve used you all to satisfy my blog craving, yet I’ve given nothing in return.
I was feeling a little guilty about it until I realized I am probably doing you a favor.
I’ve given you a rest from my incessant whining, b*tchin, and complainin’.
So I hope you’ve enjoyed your time off, because it won’t be long before I hit the “post” button on my latest vent session…
Now don’t get me wrong. Things haven’t been too bad as of late. In fact they’ve kinda just been “ho-hum”. That could be the reason I’ve taken some time off from posting. Nothing so atrocious has happened that I’ve felt the need for writing therapy, and nothing so great has happened that I’ve felt the need to share.
I’ve just had the usual occurrences of a minor running injury that has put me back on the elliptical, a domestic dispute at the hotel involving a16 year old stepson and a broken nose, and a reminder of how hard I work for minimal pay.
Other than that, life’s been just humming along. I was on the evening shifts this week. It’s been a nice change of pace. (Well – other than the arrest of the step-dad last weekend.) The Cardinals home-opener is this weekend. Against the Cubs even…. So things are going to get fun around the hotel. (Really! No sarcasm in that statement! :)) And we’ve begun staffing the front desk appropriately, so none of us feel overworked.
I had my yearly review a few days ago. It went a little better than expected. I tooted my own horn and respectfully voiced a few of my complaints. Don’t know if it’ll get me anywhere, but I feel better.
The best news of all? I’ve finally accumulated some vacation time, so the planning has begun! We’re thinking of Charleston, SC, or Austin, TX, or most recently, San Antonio, TX. I love the anticipation of vacation.
So, thanks to all of you for continuing on with your posts, while I sat back and relaxed! You’ve helped me through some stressful times. 🙂
