I've maxed out my brain capacity; there are to many things whirling around upstairs.
I'm going to write it out in a list because its the only way I can make sense of all the domino's.
1. Credit Issues
My sister's first name and my middle name are similar. Our socials are also 2 digits apart. Resulting in our identity's via the credit bureaus getting crossed up. Unfortunately she has a some not so bueno things showing up and it is now tanking my credit score. We hired a company to get it straightened out and its going to take at minimum 30-45 days.
This whole credit issue is really jacking me up because now I can not get financed to put in carpet in the house. I've been getting denied left and right. We're going to try it under Hubby's name only and see what it gets us. This is also distressing because we will have to finance the baby stuff.
My job location just shifted. I knew all along that I was going to be working in a different office but I didnt anticipate things to change with in a few hours. Its kind of hard to explain the whole scenario because I report to one person but have a dotted line to like 6 other departments. So I came from our Brea office to our Chino office to train and cover for someone else and my supervisor decided it was a good day for me to just make Chino my perminant home. So I'm learning new people and new tasks. Also for the time being my hours will be 7-4 M-F, but once my department gets in full operation I'll work 6-6 W-S with a alternating 3 and 4 day week. Yes that S stands for working Saturday!! Yuck.
Hubby also started his new job on Monday. He's loving it. I just wish he'd cut ties with his old company but thats a whole nother Oprah.
Kind of ties in with work...So since Hubby's new job is based in Canada (which has standardized health care) they have not quite figured out how to cover his insurance. The game plan was go put him on insurance through my work and expense the cost difference. It was going to work out smashingly because I'm supposed to get benefits starting Feb 1. Surprise! My work doesnt offer medical insurance...they give us the option for supplemental coverage. Something like Aflac. So I am now on the hunt for individual coverage and its looking like about $300 for each of us. Yikes.
Last Monday I missed my lunch time meeting because of a work meeting. This Monday I missed because 1. I was in a new city and didnt feel like navigating and 2. I had another meeting to rush to for work back in Brea. Monday's are clearly not working out for me. Once my schedule settles down I'll have to pick a new meeting time near my new office. In the mean time I've slide down the slippery slope of Cold Stones ice cream to the effect of being up 2 lbs.
6. Dr Apt.
D day is Thursday. For so long it was so far away and now its right around the corner. I have a wide range of emotions, I wish I could say excited but anxious is a more appropriate word. I had this whole rosey colored bubble in my head that we'd meet with the dr and I'd show him my progress with weight loss and he'd say we have great odds. My bubble hasnt totally burst, but I do feel down about not making my weight loss goal. With no clue as to what we're going to discuss I feel almost vulnerable and I have a gut feeling like I'm going to be told to come back after I'd lost 50 lbs.
All this stress is jacking me up. My period is MIA, I have a sty in my left eye and my psoriasis is flared up (I could play a mean game of connect the dots on my stomach)
I just need to get through this week....3 more days. Hopefully I'll have a more positive post on Friday, I know you'll want all the gory details from my visit.
