Well for those who don’t know, I was hired in April to be a wedding planner for an old co worker. Ive spent the last 5 months helping her and her fiance plan their wedding which is THIS weekend! Woah Nelly! SO we are under the gun trying to get all the lose ends tied up, flowers made, cupcakes ordered, the list goes on and on. I work this week Monday-Thursday 2:45 – 9:15 and then Friday I have to go down to Longmont to start the festivities! Its gonna be a mad crazy week and unfortunately I don’t think a lot of cooking, working out or WW meetings will be happening. Its just too much.
In work news Im a little stressed over my schedule. Basically Im part time so I get anywhere between 24 to 40 hours a week (generally 30ish) but they spread my shifts out so I only have two days off (which ARENT in a row!) I also at this point in time will probably never have a weekend off. They also do not let you ask for single days off (or weekends) so September 12th, my birthday I will be working. Ugg! I also cant request time off in October for a craft show I signed up to do in May, nor Mr. Gaunts birthday in November. I had also really wanted to go home for Christmas this year, but they dont let anyone take time off from November 1st – January 1st! Oh my god! Sooooo lame. I also will pretty much be only scheduled for night shifts forever. Sigh. Im not gonna lie, this schedule is not ok with me. Had I known the wack-o restrictions and such I probably wouldn’t have taken the job. I mean yes I need to work, and this physical labor was really hard at first but Im getting use to it, I just think quality of life is so much more important. Why bother having a nice house and a boyfriend and hobbies if you cant even spend time with them?
Mr. Gaunt works mon-fri 6-2:30, so based on my current schedule I will be lucky to see him for a half hour when I get home before he goes to bed. I cant do that. I also am working on a life changing weight loss plan right now, and NO job is going to come between me and eating healthy! When I work 1-9 thats basically smack dab in the middle of Lunch and Dinner! I have no time to cook, my lunch is only 30 minutes so I often run to target next door and jsut eat fruit and hummus. Boooo! I have at least 4 meals I want to try (Cucumber rolls, Panko Shrimp and Tofu, Asian Lettuce Wraps) but have no time to even go to the store.
Anyways point of my rant is that I was talking last night to Mr. Gaunt about things and he mentioned that his job is hiring for November and that maybe I should think about that. We would be in the same building but not really working together, we would have the same shift and could carpool and have lunch together, and it would be a similar work in the physical aspect as now. I don’t know it sounds really nice, weekend off with him, time to cook meals. So I may look into that, I don’t want to cramp his style by working with him, but I also want to see him regularly and want a better schedule for us. I don’t know. We will see.
Ok now that I have rambled I leave you with a few sneak peeks at some wedding planning, and an adorable photo of Pro and I in denver last night. XOXOX
