I’ve been training my replacement at work this week and it is EXHAUSTING! In every sense. Physically, emotionally, mentally… I’m spent. I have someone looking over my shoulder all day, every day. I’m talking all day, trying to explain complex, quirky systems to someone who has never seen them before. And I’m dealing with the reality that I only have 15 work days left before I go on permanent maternity leave. Thankfully, I get a break next week when she goes on a planned vacation, but that’s also the week the rest of my team is out of the office, meaning I’m basically doing the work of my entire team solo all week. Wheeeeee!
Being so busy at work has thrown my eating schedule completely out of whack. Both in pregnancy and regular life, I need to stay on a pretty specific feeding schedule in order to be ok. If I wait too long to eat I become a) ferociously cranky, and b) nauseous. But with someone sitting my my office looking to me for every minute, I cant always take my usual snack breaks or meal times. It has sucked. A lot. I won’t have my trainee next week so I can get back to normal, but then my last week of work will be more busy and missing snacks and BOO.
We cancelled our Netflix and Amazon Prime memberships. Since we’ll be on a single income for the foreseeable future, we’re really trying to curb spending. Cutting out the time suck of Netflix and the “oh this thing I don’t really need is so inexpensive and easily accessible” factor of Amazon Prime will save us both time and money, which we’re happy about. For now. Talk to me again in three months when I’m home alone all day with an infant and I don’t have shows to binge watch.
Do you use Netflix and/or Amazon Prime? Would you cancel them to save money?
