Oh hai Tuesday! You snuck up on me!
To be perfectly honest, I have nothing inspired to write for IBOT today. Shocking, I know.
I put the call out on twitter, and got several interesting suggestions, and one shocking comparison.
Let me say, I was more than tempted to write about bacon.
As for interesting things I’ve don’t today. Hmmm….
I’ve pulled more disgusting head lice out of my children’s hair because they just refuse to die.
I did some washing, and played cars with the kids.
Oh and I did the grocery shopping and bought lots of chocolate.
So, not particularly interesting.
To be honest, I’m happy with dull today. Dull is good.
Last week was a bit crazy. Apart from all the normal stuff, I managed to add in a migraine and the removal of my wisdom teeth, but none of that was even slightly as stressful as the life stuff that’s going on.
On the eve of R U OK Day, it turned out that Boatman and I weren’t.
I’ve said before that Boatman started a new job earlier in the year, and he is loving it. The hours are good, the pay is good, and there is no where near the stress he gets from being in the office. His employment is casual, but that’s ok because the contract was suppose to last two years, and he was guaranteed work whilst it was there.
The problem is the contract has finished early. Eighteen months early.
And come the end of October, he’ll be down to one job that on its own is not really enough.
Obviously this causes a bit of a dilemma. He could go full time into any number of jobs (including his last one), but that just made him miserable. And after years of being stuck in a job he hated to provide for us, I am loathe to have him go back into that environment again. Which is why we are searching Australia wide for marine based jobs.
This is obviously a huge change, and to be honest, I’m not really ready to leave Darwin, but at the same time, sometimes you have to make a sacrifice. And we don’t even know if he will find something down south anyway; we are just keeping our options open and trying to find the right solution for all of us.
So in terms of all that, you can see why wisdom removal, migraines and head lice that won’t die seem fairly insignificant.
So I guess that’s it for now. My mind is busy with too many thoughts, and fuzzy from too many painkillers, and there is a lot going on. But as usual, we will take everything in our stride and trust it works out in the long run.
And in the mean time, I leave you with bacon.
Do you know of any companies needing a qualified Coxswain?
Do you like bacon?
Do you think I look like Mia Freedman?
