It has been an awful, stressful work week, and it’s only Wednesday morning. (Of course, when you are miserable at your job, every work day and work week is awful and stressful. 8 years, 4 months and 28 days until retirement seems way too far away. ) It doesn’t help that I have a 4 day weekend ahead of me and 3 days of work before I get there. I still struggle with the urge to call in every single day. But all that does is waste a perfectly good day and allow my work to build up. The best I can do is trudge through each day, keeping my eye on the prize(s): weeknights, weekends, vacations, holidays and, ultimately, retirement.

  1. I hear what you are saying. I am on a two week winter break and I am enjoying every waking minute of not having to think about work. I don’t mind the whole idea of getting up and going to work, I mind that there are so many stupid things that I have to deal with and I am growing weary of it. When I do retire in a couple of years, I think I’ll get a part-time job to help with the expenses of living, but something with little to no stress. (if that’s possible!) Enjoy your holiday…it is almost here!


    • Agreed – and if I didn’t have amazing benefits that I need because of a chronic illness with thousands of dollars in medical bills a year and a flexible schedule that allows me to attend so many appointments without fear of losing my job, I’d look to go elsewhere. I’m aware I’m choosing to stay out of need, but it’s sucks to be so miserable at a place you spent so many of your waking hours. Sigh.
