And I will tell you why:
...here I have been mentally and emotionally getting myself ready - for July, when I no longer will be working full time as a Nanny. In fact, there were times when I was downright EXCITED about it - lying to myself, that it was a new adventure. HA!
I thought I only had 4 days left - next Friday would be my last day. I'd have a week off and then start my new schedule 2 days a week (Mondays and Fridays) So yesterday the Mom told me, that she has to take 3 days off from work next week - Wed, Thursday and Friday due to a planned Hospital strike that she has to honor. Which basically means, my only day next week is Tuesday. I was shocked!
And to add insult to injury, I asked her to confirm if I will be working 1 or 2 days a week and she told me only 1 day a week. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Her husband keeps insisting I am working 2 days a week. So I finked on him - told her about the 2 days and she said that unless he pays for that extra day out of his own account. Other than that, it is a 1 day a week commitment.
What a awkward situation this is for me.
So I came home yesterday feeling very down - depressed -scared. Where was all that so-called emotional and mental STRENGTH I have been exercising for the last few months???? I totally caved in last night and my husband looks at me and just shakes his head....
"You confuse me" he says.
Yeah well, I confuse myself.
