Worms Ate My Computer!

Or so we thought. Turns out…well…we’re not sure exactly what std my computer picked up, be we was a-sufferin’ for a few days there. I thought all was back to normal for a while on Friday, but then realized that someone had installed a really old version of Firefox and it was complete shit. So, my computer was not really feeling like itself until this morning. We are now back to normal, or what passes for such around here.

So posting will resume on its semi-regular basis.

I don’t know if it’s the lack of sleep (coughing+absurdly hungry and attachment-deprived baby) or the cough/cold thing I’ve been rockin’ the past week or what, but I am feeling really old and wiped out today. I’m also in a surprisingly negative mood. I’ve been wondering if a job opportunity that was sort of offered to me has now gone to someone else( it doesn’t help that I really don’t like this someone else). I was using that chance for some change to keep me going in my current job. With it gone (I’m not sure it is, it just hasn’t been mentioned in a while) I’m once again entertaining the idea of just quitting and getting some stupid part time job. I mean, minimum wage in California is now going to be $8! That’s not a whole lot less than what I make now. Just the idea of being stuck in this job for the next (insert huge amount of time) makes me nauseous. I want to scream and cry and rip my hair out. I want to go home and sleep for a really long time. I’m frustrated.

But quitting would be dumb. I need to work for our family to survive and my job is not as bad as a lot of them out there.

I’ve written about this all before, I know. Sorry. It sometimes helps me get through the funky-mood days to write (and hear from all of you!).
