Where Have I Been Today?

  • Oversleeping
  • Being late to work
  • Working
  • Sweating
  • Not ringing
  • Pushing
  • Answering my phone calls
  • Overthinking my posts and not publishing

I do have a full post ready to go, but I’m reticent to publish it because of its content. It’s a kind of tongue-in-cheek one, but it’s about my body and I don’t want to make anyone uncomfortable 😳, least of all my fam.

So I have to decide, now, about pursuing this promotion. I talked to my stepmother over the weekend, and she made a valid point.

She said to think hard about giving up part of some of my weekends and about working nights, because once I committed to that, there would probably be no going back.

She could be right.

The cool thing about being a coordinator is that from there, I could be promoted again to key-carrier, then eventually to management. It may be a good advancement opportunity for me.

Then again, it would mean I’d have to have flexible availability, indefinitely.

And then again, I would likely have a weekday off, and I could take Aislyn to the physical therapy sessions the GI doc recommended. And go to the post office. Make business calls.

But what if Desmond has a game or event on the weekend and I can’t go because I’m working?

I don’t know. I don’t know what to do, now. Manager says on paper it’s three weekends per month, but that they usually do only two. And the coordinators have said they do one night a week. That seemed doable. But what if it changed?

Hmm. Well, I guess I hadn’t really considered the longer-term consequences of giving up parts of weekends. I’m going to have to think about it some more.
