Hello everyone and welcome back. Long time no see!
Okay, so I did finish my last day back on the 14th. I actually showed up to working wearing a dress and heels I said goodbye to everyone and helped train the new girl. Wish I was given more than just a day to help her. But she seemed to be picking up things just fine and I left her a binder with a “how- to” on everything.
Getting back to the title of this post; I am fed up with these “mountains” life keep throwing at me. I don’t care for this obstacle course called life. Its like I take a few feet forward only to be pushed ten feet back. I hate that I didn’t really get to enjoy my tax return. The stuff that wasn’t covered by my insurance for my vision which was only $200. Came up to $369, seriously in 2018 it makes no sense to charge for each eye lens for a glasses. All of us are born with two eyes. The frames along with the glasses should be one flat rate. I hate the misconception about the frame pricing. Where it says, “Frames start at $68” I think they should get rid of it. Since majority of the frames are more than $68. I hate that my cell phone broke or rather is forever frozen and there was nothing ATT could do to fix it. Which resulted in me having to buy a new phone. Keep in mind I had been wanting a new phone for quite some time since the other one was freezing a lot. But with this new phone everyday, I have to go on to ATT website and unsuspend my phone in order to call, or send text messages. That leaves my phone free for about a good 10-12 hours tops. Ive notice lately my phone has been restarting itself for the past 48 hours, needless to say I am not a happy camper. I am probably in the minority for this, but I miss Samsung S3 over my S7. I have yet to come across anything on my S7 that I honestly thought was better. It was basically $800 to those two things right there.
I did receive a new bed after 17 years, I have upgraded to a FULL. I have mixed feelings, to be honest, I haven’t been sleeping well. Despite that it’s a bigger softer bed, I switched from a firm to a soft; I guess i’m still getting used to it. I went out to lunch and movie via my aunt for my birthday I did have blast, although I had a real bad migraine and felt like my brain was on fire… I had placed in a request to take out my retirement on the fifteenth. I just received a notice and I only got a few hundred dollars. Mind you what was in the fund was a little over $2000. I know you have to take out some for tax purposes, but to only get back $446.20 is ridiculous.
I’m left with this scenario, I’m unemployed, I only have a couple of hundred dollars to me name. And it looks like what little break I thought I would get, I won’t have. I’m exhausted, physically, mentally and emotionally. All I wanted to do was have enough money to cover me for a few months while I simply relax and heal. I am exhausted! But with the way things are going, it looks like I’ll have to hop right back into the work place before I am actually ready for such a commitment. I don’t understand the lack of rest for the wearily. I know we could use a break. But I can’t help but wonder when is my break? I tried calling my retirement people. sixteen minutes on the phone waiting listening to the theme song of X-files. I kid you not, that was the ring back tone. I got fed up and hung up. I’ll try again tomorrow morning.
