My mom came to visit me last week. Well actually, she flew in from Chicago on Wednesday, March 10. I took off Thursday, Friday and Monday to hang out with her. She stayed until Saturday, March 20. I wonder if I will ever get used to living so far from her. Everytime we visit each other, I cry for days after we part ways again. Does anyone else have that problem? I feel like I am still 5 years old when it comes to missing my parents. Please tell me I am normal.
In other news, I hate my job. Like, I really hate it you guys. I love the company I work for, I (usually) like my coworkers, I have a kick ass little office and I get to work with JJ. But my job sucks. I am constantly bored out of my mind and for some reason that is more tiring that being busy. After a day of being bored, I will go home with a headache and will be completely exhausted. On the rare occasion that I am busy, I go home feeling energized and like I actually have value.
I don't want to leave my job because I have great benefits and really don't want to start trying to find something new in this crazy economy. Plus, when JJ and I decide to have kids, I am planning on being a stay at home mom. The last thing I want to do is start over with a new company, only to quit after a year or less because I am staying home with my kids.
So everyday I struggle to find a purpose. I try so hard to find something to do so I am not miserable all day. Some days I can find enough to keep me occupied, but most days I am completely bored. Today is one of those days. Come on 4:30! Hurry up and get here already!
