I am supposed to be in the shower now, so I can go to the post office and pay my bills before I go to work -- including the rest of my rent, which is due by tomorrow. But somehow, I'm just not in the mood. There's always tomorrow morning. It almost makes me wish I wrote checks instead of using money orders.

I am appalled to discover that six hours of overtime, at time and a half, came out to only $130 in my paycheck. The tax man must have taken most of it, because it should have been more than that. And if six hours of extra work is only worth $130 to them, next time I'm taking comp time instead -- a day off (I actually worked eight hours of overtime and didn't charge for all of it) is worth more to me than $130. Wow, do I feel undervalued.

I did pay a little extra on that high-interest credit card, but the bulk of my overtime largesse is paying for my first session with a career counselor. It's not for another week and a half, but I'm really looking forward to it. I need help! Direction! Impartial advice! My therapist recommended a career counseling service run by two local women who have been doing it for, like, 30 years, and I'm hopeful that it'll help. My Mom had recommended that I go this route last fall, and that was how I found www.changingcourse.com. While the life I dreamed about while reading that Web site still sounds swell, I don't think that now is the right time in the job market to start my own business (or three). Anyway, career counseling won't come cheap, but I think it's worth it. I need it right now. I hate the way I've been floundering about work for the last 18 months.

Well, now I've wasted enough time that I need to get ready for work. Blarg. Wish me a day with no important dead people, because I'm just not in the mood to deal with grief-stricken people. There is only so much grief one can absorb in a week, and I think I've reached my threshold.
