I’ve been busy on two fronts lately.
I now work 6 days a week. This would be great if I liked the extra part of my job, but I don’t. It has nothing to do with what I was hired to do. I agreed to “help out” for a while, but it has turned into my job. There’s another Thing about my job that has had me down lately. I was hired to create content for social media platforms but I’m the only one at the site that does this job. This means I have no one at work to discuss creative ideas with and get constructive feed back from. There’s no one around to learn from. Sure, I can experiment, but without good feedback I’m not sure I’m really learning anything about my field. I’ve decided to look for other employment. Even if it’s something on the side. Their might be a new boss at work soon. If so, I plan on talking to them about this situation, maybe something will change. I did just get health insurance.
I hate yard work. I pay someone to mow my lawn. He mows and edges. That’s it. I could pay him extra to do everything but I can’t afford that. So, I do all the hedge trimming and whatever else needs doing. I haven’t done any of it since summer started. Too damn hot, I hate it, and I don’t have a truck anymore to get rid of yard waste. sigh I slowly started working in the yard again about two weeks ago. I tried to take an overgrown bush out of the ground. I trimmed it all the way down to the ground and then tried to dig it out. Lawnmower Man is going to be paid to actually dig it out of the ground. I had to rent a truck to get rid of all that waste plus some downed limbs after the hurricane came through. I, also, used the truck to move a bunch of brick over to the neighbors house. I have a bunch more to do. I have a new plan for it.
I called the waste company arranged to have yard waste picked up every week. They come on Fridays. I’m allowed four containers (I have 4 33-gallon sized trash cans) each week, that can’t weigh over 45-pounds each. I’ll do a little yard work each day, or whenever I can, and when the four cans are filled, I’m done for the week. I’ve got three filled already. Could be a short week, although, I got rained out today and it’s been raining most afternoons lately. We’ll see how it goes.
Well, that’s it for life updates for now. The Rolling Stone project will be moving forward, again.
