Wine and Love: Seven

I haven’t posted since last week’s Wine and Love. LAME. It’s been an insanely busy week. But it’s Thursday, so…it’s time for another instalment of Wine and Love created by Nora, and hosted by Suki. The concept is simple – each Thursday you post about what’s making you reach for the wine glass and what you’re loving.Wine & Love

Wine

  • Work: This remains a pretty steady w(h)ine.  After today, it should ease up a little bit, but I’m really starting to struggle managing my job and covering for my coworker while she’s off on medical leave.
  • Insomnia has returned.  I’ve had a really rough week with the sleeping stuff.
  • I fail at eating regularly.  This week, I’ve skipped lunch every day so far.  Most days, I’ve skipped breakfast.  I’m either too busy or not feeling well enough, but I know this will only compound my exhaustion.  Gotta sort my life out, people.  This is not good.

Love

  • I am LOVING my Kobo.  After going back and forth on whether or not I should splurge, last Friday, I was gifted with a silver kobo touch.  I’ve been reading heaps more and it’s to the point where I have to be like ‘Okay, I’m going to leave the kobo downstairs so I don’t take it to bed with me and stay up all night reading’.
  • Replaced the old, germy fridge that came with the house last weekend.  The new one is arriving this week.  I’m entirely TOO excited about this!
  • It’s a short week this week; Monday was a holiday and my weekend will start tomorrow at noon!
  • I had the chance to run a training session again this week and it just reminded me of how much I like to do that and how much I love working in my chosen field.  I don’t get to do it often enough, so it’s always a nice surprise when I do.

 

What are you whining about this week?  What are you loving?

Wine…Wine & Love

  • Work and school.  It’s always the same.  I’m not going to go into details.
  • My grandfather’s been really unwell.  I’m sad that he’s so uncomfortable.  I’m frustrated that there isn’t anything that can be done to make him more comfortable and I’m mad the doctors are refusing to operate.

Love…

  • My grandmother turned 80 this week!  Can you imagine?  She’s in good health, she’s pretty with it (what 80 year old do you know that has an iPad, a Twitter account and an eReader?!? My Gram does), and she volunteers still as a teacher at the senior’s centre.  Amazing.
  • Summer hours start at work this week!  That means from now until Labour Day, my weekend starts at noon on Fridays.
  • This weekend marks the first long weekend of the summer! Wooooo.  I’m so looking forward to my 3.5 day-long weekend.
  • I’m thinking about buying an eReader.  Someone STOP ME.  I was given some birthday money and I’ve gone from not spending anything to spending ALL THE MONEY.  I think I need an intervention.
  • I’m reading Deadlocked. I love these books.  I don’t care what anyone says.  I can hear you judging me.  But they’re awesome.  It’s been my first guilty pleasure read in a year.

Wine and Love: Four

It’s time for another instalment of Wine and Love created by Nora, and hosted by Suki. The concept is simple – each Thursday you post about what’s making you reach for the wine glass and what you’re loving.

Wine…

  • Work: I’m afraid this is going to be on my wine list for a while.  It’s insane, I’m feeling really burnt out and really unappreciated and very, very underemployed.  I could go on, but I sound like a broken record.
  • School: Deja vu, n’est pas?  It’s been pretty intense, and the hours that I would usually give to school have been taken up by all the overtime I’m working at work.  By the time I’m done my 9-13 hour day, I’m ready to go home and sleep.  Not study, or participate in class or do homework.  Luckily, school will be over in a month.  I just hope to pass at this point.  Which is sad, cuz I’m used to getting HDs (That’s 85% or higher, in Aussie speak).

 

Love…

  • This is going to be vague, but ah, well.  Sometimes I do think things work out a certain way for a reason.  Sometimes, when something seems like the end of the world, something else will come out of it a little while later that proves that maybe the end of the world thing had to happen for something better, or something more helpful to happen.  I’m so glad this has been the situation in my case.
  • It’s my birthday! It’s kinda a wine and a love.  I have this strange anxiety about turning 30, which I am now a YEAR away from.  But I’m also looking forward to going to the pub for dinner tonight with friends and family.  I haven’t seen my BFF in a while and he’s coming along, I’m super excited about that.  And then on Saturday, I’ll be seeing the rest of my family and my cousins.  Really looking forward to that.
