(eek! I know!)

I was thinking that November is off to a crappy beginning. I mean, I dislike the month as it is, but it's really been a rotten couple days.

I'm nervous about something subconsciously because I keep fidgeting-- can't stop twirling my hair at work (I look like an idiot), playing with my phone when no one messages/calls me, talking on and on about nothing to avoid silence... etc.

We lost one of my favorite residents and it was fine, but the quiet from her empty room has made these days kinda glum. We've been short staffed and everything has been horribly hectic, though that's nothing new. I stupidly agreed to stay another 4 hours yesterday, bringing me to a 12 hour day. I thought I had today off, but I realized I actually have tomorrow off, so I was off at 7pm only to return for 7am.

Bear has been working an absurd amount of hours. A lot of overnights which run into his normal 12 hour shifts, so he is absent for 24 hours at a time. Tonight, he has class from 6pm til 10pm, then work from 11pm tonight until 6am Wednesday morning, when I leave for work again. It's a mess and it's not working for us but that's how it is for now.

I went through my Facebook page and got rid of a lot of friends. I do this every so often, when I accumulate more than I deem "friends" versus "acquaintances." Some people were really just getting on my nerves. I have friends who update 2820 times a day about nothing-- sorry, that's what Twitter is for. I also have friends who I only added to "check up on," and now just seeing their names appear here and there can send me into a blind rage after a long day of work, so they're gone, too. My rule of thumb became: If I saw this person on the street, would I stop and have a conversation, and how awkward/short would it be? Bingo.

The only good thing I have to say about the month thus far is that I believe we now have 100% housebroken the dog. I hope I'm at least right about that. Now, we just have to stop her chewing things that are not chewing-appropriate. That'll be more work. I'd love for it to work out though, because I hate leaving her in her crate while I am at work. Sigh.

Enough outta me for now. Maybe later...
