here's my question for the day: does anyone blog about serious stuff these days? personal issues, problems, or life experience. i mean, i love the funny, and am all set to post about an awesome zombie movie we watch over the weekend, but what about the the less funny, more life-ish stuff?
i guess this question points to my own "reflective mood". i've been in touch with a long-lost friend recently, and maybe catching up on life (mine and his) has me looking at my own life.
also, i am at work in "hurry up & wait!" mode, so i have some downtime.
i realized this weekend that working under 45 hours a week has been wonderful. i don't know i spent the first 2 years here at mandatory 56 hour weeks (10 hour days mon-fri and saturdays 6 hours.) i will never do that again. it wasn't worth the money or the damage to my health.
my job is "high stress" for sure, but there are payoffs. i work with people i like. if i have problems with someone i am able to deal with it usually. and i've gotten "good for you" feedback on my work since the promotion. so working around 40 hours a week and occasional positive feedback works wonders, sad that it should be a newsflash.
this weekend i realized that i have been off anti-depressants for almost 2 years, and that besides the occasional "funk", i am happy. really happy! besides the work situation improving, i would guess that maybe a little bit of that has to do with the boyfriend.
so what am i saying? i'm in love, and it's all butterflies and rainbows? no. but life is good and i am happy. my job is not horrible. my family is healthy and we get along and have fun. i have great friends and cool dogs. i guess i wanted to say how good things are, since i mostly bitch, post funny pics or say snarky things.
now what kind of picture or video am i going to use for this post???? how about something sweet?
