Explanation of Disappearance

So, I know I haven't been around much.  Work has been very busy and before Saturday, I had worked the last 12 days straight, going in early and all that jazz too.  It just tires a person out and unfortunately doesn't leave much energy for blogging.  I took off Saturday, went in yesterday (Sunday) and am taking of today.  Plus, since I am home less, I am trying to spend more quality time with Wookie, so he doesn't feel left out and we go to the dog park when I get home, after we get home, we are both fairly exhausted and crash, to start everything all over the next day.  There are a few reasons why I am going in for so much overtime. 

First, the department I currently work in is VERY busy right now and everyone is working overtime, it just varies by person how much overtime is being worked.

Second, I was accepted for a different position in the bank and I start on the 19th.  I am training a temp to replace me so I am doing everything in my power to get everything caught up so she doesn't feel like she is buried under a mudslide since we are so busy right now.  It's hard to learn so much stuff and not be overwhelmed, much less have to learn all of it and be behind because we are so busy.

Third, the new department I am going to avoids overtime at all costs from what I hear, so it's not like I'll have the opportunity to work any once I go over there.

And last, but not least, Fourth, the husband and I have decided to start saving up to purchase a home in hopefully 2013.  So all the money we can save the better.

I will do my best to keep blogging but starting tomorrow I will be working the next 11-13 days straight, right up until I start my new position.  So it's going to be a busy household here.  If I cannot keep up and I disappear, at least you will all know where I am.  :)


  1. Congrats!! It all sounds like "good" busy...


  2. Congrats! And wonderful on the house! No worries on not blogging, life comes first!

  3. It's a great goal you have for doing over time! Having your own home is great, and I hope you'll have a wonderful garden for Wookie, and a veggie garden (which I don't have, and regret).

    Why was I under the impression you are a teacher?

  4. I've been swamped the last two weeks, too. Sometimes life is just like that. Hope things go well with the training and the new position, and we'll see you on the other side!

  5. Wow! Lots of changes! Keep your head together! Don't forget to create something in times of stress!
