Sunday 'fess up...*sigh*

This week has been two things: work and sleep.  Well, bill paying got put in there somewhere but other than that I've got nothing.  I've been working suicide shifts (15+ hours in one day is a "suicide shift").  No time for anything else.  Even my cat has missed me.  He's laying on top of me right now as I lounge in my nest typing this.  I think he's upset with me because I've been too tired to do anything with him.

So...writing...died this week.  I got a couple pages on Only A Name done in revisions but that's it.  And I don't know that it's going to be better in March either.  Because of our need to go to Texas in April I'm putting in a bare minimum of 20 hours of overtime a week in March. More suicide shifts are in my future.  If I have my way (arguing with the boss right now over this) I'll be putting in anywhere from 19 to 29 hours of overtime a week.  For those of you curious, that's 109.5 hours of overtime I've scheduled.  I was supposed to have 116 but he made me cancel my overtime for Monday.  I know, I know...that's a burn out schedule.  I'm aware of this.  BUT...I have to have $2000 by the time I leave on April 10th.  Actually, I have to have most of that BEFORE I leave so I can afford the trip.

There's a reason I'm glad I have 2 weeks off in April.

I don't do this often, and I won't be doing it again.  But as long as my boss doesn't fuck with me too much I'll get it done.  Himself has overtime coming up too so even if I lose some of mine he'll be able to make up some of the money.  But I make more than he does on a base level so my overtime is worth more.

Vlog will happen.  Eventually.  Some time today.  I'm having fun talking to the web cam even if no one else really watches them so I'll post it and I'll link it on Twitter when I'm done.

That's it for this week's SFU.  We'll see what happens with my boss and me, and we'll see what my week looks like for next week's SFU.


  1. Sometimes we just gotta put our heads down and stagger on, one foot in front of the other. *hugs and cheers you on*

  2. Make that $$! I love ya and I miss ya! Sorry it's been a while! *HUGS*
