Remodeling [Dec. 6th, 2009|03:42 pm]

[mood |tiredtired]

Gahhh, I am so tired and we still have about 2/3rds of the room to finish sealing up. The foam board is really really the best option for the roof/ceiling angled part, but it is such a pain to work with. As the the portion of the house we're working on was built over a century ago, square and regular measurements are not there. So we cut the foam in 2' sections, glue it up and go on. As I finish a couple of segments I can put in the fibre-glass insulation bats in the ceiling and then the segment is done. I expect to have the room ready to put wall board up by the 25th. Fortunately the girls now know how do the foam board and can do the it with out me. The youngest has volunteered to work on putting the rest of the foam board up. Yay. That means all I will have to do is put the fiber-glass up in the ceiling. I'm not going to do the other upstairs bed room for a while, like this time next year... At the earliest.

I had a really bad panic stricken weekend. I couldn't sleep, was worried sick I would lose my job, etc. I was so depressed that I was feeling suicidal (obviously I didn't do the deed.) The root at the time seemed to be work related. So I checked with my boss and says I'm doing fine (there's objective proof, a asked for and received raise and a totally unexpected bonus, PM's asking if they can have my time for project, etc.) But I still don't believe in myself. Being more than a little upset at the suicidal thought, I took myself off to see my therapist. After some discussion, the working hypothesis is that I have a self-esteem problem (Doh..) So any way we're (My therapist and I) starting to build my self-image.

I picked up a book he wants me to read/work through and we'll discuss it at next weeks session.

So I'm also going to try and get a social life too. It's time I got out of my cycle of werk, house, werk, house..

Wish me luck

On the plus side:
I now walk from the house to the Emergency room entrance at the hospital and a little past. I didn't stop to catch my breath until I was two blocks into the return leg.

My transfer to the new section is finally official and I negotiated a raise as part of the deal.

My left left (The current evil leg) is now limber enough to let me make a cat lap now. For a relatively long period of time. This also means no more putting my shoes on like an old man.

I got the car back from the body shop, and I didn't have to pay.

I finally decided what color to paint my room and the front room. So I finished up the primer coat that got interrupted in July.

On the down side:
My bank which was merged recently still doesn't show my paycheck from Friday, just past.

Climbing up and down the ladder in the front room makes my legs hurt, oh well. Such is life.

Good News [Apr. 21st, 2007|11:20 am]

The youngest finally got the official letter from the pulmonologist that she does NOT have asthma. So she will be enlisting in the service and heading off to where ever. Hopefully, not Iraq or Afghanistan for at least a year. If she gets her way and goes to language school And I WILL reminder her to get the schooling in writing.) So far as I know any of those tongues will take a least a year of schooling.

The eldest is working and is finally (Sorry had to scratch the kitten's chin) working seriously on getting moved out and getting her drivers license (soon) with a target of next February (moving.)

The middle one is at least learning to drive now. Still pushing her to get a job or go to school.

They told me at work yesterday that the transfer between departments is probably going to go through (unless my current management decides they can't live without me.. In which case I want a raise.)

It also is looking good for additional training.

The front room and hallway are being re-plastered so I can start painting them soon.

The middle one is going to wash the walls in my room next week. So when the other room and hallway are done I can put the base coat/sealer on all of them at the same time. I'm guessing two 5 gallon pails of base for that.

The garage roof is also being re-done. I was leaking in places being at least 25 years old old and looking like the pits since the day I moved in.

Finally, we're having a yard sale in a week or so to see how much more clutter we can get out of my house. As I've been telling the girls to prepare them I may be selling the house in a couple of years.

Stress [Mar. 29th, 2007|07:11 am]

[mood |tiredtired]

There are good days and bad days, this week has been mostly bad days. I wake up in the middle of the night and can't get back to sleep worrying about work. I've told my bosses and they offer sympathy and hang in there. My stomach hurts most of the time, I've been to the Doctor's. It's nothing organic, thankfully. But, it's been going for almost a year now. I've posted my resume in several places, one bite, the didn't work out once they found out my age and present salary requirements. I feel trapped and can't get out.. If it weren't for the youngest still being in school, I'd quit the job, sell the house and move somewhere. There's the other rub, I don't know for sure where I would want to move to, and I like the money. So here I am unhappily stuck at a job that's making me ill in a place that is so say the least very insular and backward. Guess, I'll go post on some other job boards and hope for the best.
