I've Been Searching
I'm feeling alot of holiday pressure lately. I've been having a hard time just getting regular errands done, never mind all the extra shopping. Store line waiting time is limiting what I have time to do.
All my packed Xmas stuff is so difficult to find n get out. It's easier to buy more or forget about it. I'm definitely doing less holiday prep this year.
Today I searched for a light-weight extension cord, a b-day card I know I bought two weeks back, n a pair of new sneakers packed up here someplace. I can't figure out where they are.
I made it to storage last month, for the first time since moving, but couldn't find all I was looking for. Do have the old PC back at least, just need to be careful of over-loading RAM n hard disk space. I'll put all pics on a thumb drive.
Need to go back to storage with more search time. Will probably just buy wrap again instead of have time to go find it.
Thanks to new sick-time laws, I have some bonus, paid, unused, sick days to use up by the 31st. I'm taking Friday n have a cold settling in my nose this week anyway, thanks to people coming back to the house from a holiday trip coughing with it. Hopefully I can get more caught up on things, while blowing my nose at the same time. I will take advantage calling out for the other days I'm still owed too, or lose the paid time off. I'm not used to calling in. I've only done it twice in nine years there. I can honestly say I need more free time, especially for the store.
I hate the new Walmart, it takes so much time to walk where you need things- all spread out in different directions, with less selection, especially clothes. I had to buy long johns after not finding enough for a workweek in my room. I wanted the kind I had, but they only have flimsy, new kinds I don't like. Someday I'll figure out where the other half of my winter wardrobe is hiding... but probably not soon enough!
I wonder how long it will be before daily life gets more convenient for me. Obviously it could be worse, but I don't like all this wasted search time factor.
