10 reasons why working is not fun

31 Mar

OK, don’t get me wrong, I am really thankful for having a job. A few weeks ago, I was at the stage of unemployment when I was freaking out about how to pay my bills, mortgage, etc…I mean I didn’t really want to look at my new lovely husband and ask him to cover me a few grand;-) Plus, it was getting hard not to go shopping or get a manicure.

But, nonetheless, working is really tough. Here’s what been hardest so far, in no particular order:

10. Free time flies by. I barely have time to cook, eat, and watch one show, before I’m freaking out that I have to get up in less than eight hours.

9. Never getting eight hours of sleep.

8. Having no time for gossip girl marathons.

7. Being forced to eat bad lunch everyday, from the same small collection of bad lunch places.

6. Always having a fake smile on my face, cause I don’t have friends at work yet.

5. Not having time to call my NY friends and family when I am home, or meet my DC friends cause of the aforementioned cook, eat, one tv show, panicked rush to bed dilemma.

4. No time to blog, twitter, etc.

3. Leaving Artie in the crate all day.

2. No time for Oprah.

1. Having to look nice all the time.

    Having to look nice all the time sucks! I mean, I feel better not walking around like a shlub all day now, but still. Planning “outfits” is hard. And uncomfortable.

    You fail to mention my Jeff, my dogwalker. And the fact that I go to doggie day care on Tuesdays and Thursday. It’s really not that bad……but I should probably get a treat anyway.

    I suggest making your lunch instead of spending money on crappy lunch. It’s just a though. I would be happy to make you your lunch and watch your dog for you. You could pay me for this and then your problems would be solved and I would no longer be unemployed!! It’s a fantastic idea.
