Never a Chance to Rest

Things haven’t really slowed down for me since we got back from our little trip at the end of last month. So, I know I talked about not getting the supervisory position, but what I didn’t mention was that I’ve been job shifted (with choice, I wanted this). I get to learn about Air because […]

My Motivation is Slow and Lacking

I did not realize until I was checking comments that I have not bothered to write here in nearly a month and a half. I don’t even know where April went to… it was blink and gone. May is starting to feel the same too. Like my days have been merging into a muddled mess. […]

A Normal Week’s Stress Compressed

Last week… felt like a whole month. Monday, the government shut down for the second half of the day (as compared to my normal work schedule). However, things did not go as expected. We were provided with one set of instructions on Friday. Pretty much, plan to be furloughed. So when everyone came in Monday […]

Dear Jet Lag

You will not get the best of me. But, man, 3 hours difference from my usual time zone is really throwing me off. I feel for those that came from overseas (Europe in this case) because I would be even worse for wear. I traveled this weekend and am now at a class for the […]

Oh Life

I’m feeling kind of run down, so I’ll try to keep this short. One things for sure, my boss is definitely human and as irritated as I was this afternoon with him, being human means you make mistakes. You can’t always be perfect. I ended up reassuring him of this and made sure that things […]

Two Years

Yesterday marks two years that me and the Beau has been together. It feels like we’ve been together for way longer than just two years. I feel like we’ve been together for a life time already. I suppose that’s a good thing too? We celebrated by going to Denali for a rafting trip, then swinging […]

Ready for a Break

This felt like an extremely long week. I got things accomplished, but I worry about what I didn’t get accomplished. I have to remember to step away from the work desk and realize that things will get finished, when they get finished. I’ve noticed during weeks when we have our programmatic meetings, I’m pretty much […]

Life in General

These last few weeks have been a bit of a struggle time wise. There’s a lot of things going on that need to be completed (work related) and I feel like I lack the proper motivation to get it done. But I did find something amusing. Out of the three of us, the contractors training […]

There’s No Such Thing As Spring

We’re getting another front of snow that’s looking to be at least another foot altogether. My phone will not stop buzzing with warnings about roads. I wish it was lighter outside though, Tyr absolutely adores the snow and could probably play nonstop in it. The funny thing about living so far north is that the […]

Trip from Hell?

This was a long ass week. I flew out on Sunday, 3 hours late. Missed all of my connecting flights as a result. So I got to my destinations 8 hours passed my original planned arrival time (this means instead of getting in at 4 in the afternoon, I ended up getting in at midnight, […]
