Ummm oops, I wrote this Saturday and apparently it did not ever get from saved drafts to published.
Happy Saturday friends! It is NFL Divisional Playoff weekend. I noticed as I opened my blog today that I had something like 394 posts. Wow! That’s right I went everyday in 2015 #Everyday2015 and then now I am doing everyday 2016 or #Everyday2016. I am sort of proud of that but really what does that mean? I hope it means there is a 394 days of trying to inspire people if nothing else at least showing that it is okay to be real. I would love to have these amazing wise posts everyday but sometimes I am just normal, Ruby. Even kind of blah! Mostly lately I have been busy Ruby so trying to squeeze in posting and writing witty and wise posts just doesn’t happen, and when they do they are laced with typos and mistakes. But I am okay with that. I love to write everyday. Sometimes I think maybe it would be more meaningful if I wrote less but if I wait until I have time it will not happen. I just prefer to keep going and one day, maybe one day I will get one of those posts that a ton of people with repost and retweet and share on Facebook, or maybe not. I will keep writing.
Today I am contemplating my big decision this week. My decision to go full time doing massage and quit the bartending gig. I love bartending I really do enjoy it and have fun meeting people. Yesterday I even gave away a big pull tab win to a friend! Yesterday, I got to work the late shift 9-close. It was nice to be able to go out to dinner with my family and take the girl to her friends sleep over and then go to work as the boys decided they were going to build Legos. The bar was busy and rambunctious it was
actually pretty fun. Annoying at times whent eh D.J. decided to let the crowd run the shoe instead of taking control himself but it was not horrible. The other bartender that I worked with is one of my friends. She is a little high stung and a lot of the other bartenders get intimidated by her. I do too but I know that the things she says when I am making mistakes will only make me a better bartender. And I know that she is not mad at me she is just direct. I hate it how a woman who is direct and outspoken is often times labeled a bitch. I wish I could be more direct more often. She just says what she thinks and most times says what everyone else wants to say but are too chicken to say it. Any way the work day was fun, and today being Saturday I got to sleep in so going to bed at 3am wasn’t as hard as it is on Tuesdays when I have to get up for school and work on Wednessdays.
Since I have given notice at the bar however my arms have been killing me. My Carpal Tunnel Syndrome has been acting up. I also had a lot of cancelations this week and my schedule started out kind of slim! I am worried I Fucked up and need that bartending gig. However I am thinking of other options that don’t involve me having to work late nights! I want to do massage bit even as I type my wrists are hurting and with every stroke I feel it more. I need to probably get more massage and maybe physical therapy or something but the crazy head Ruby part of me has diagnosed me with career ending injury! …I did say cray head! Anyway I just want to work, make enough money to keep our family comfortable and not stress about every extra dance fee or the need for new cleats. I love my work both jobs! I will miss bartending but I need to be with my family. I will not sacrifice my family for money. I will work through this and be creative and keep you readers posted with my ideas and options! To living life the fullest and making priorities and sacrifices at the right time and no regrets!

I am getting old! Or maybe sick, do hangovers give you a fever? The Hubs and I went out last night I had 3 drinks at one bar the 2 at the next. Today I have a migraine and am puking every time I eat. I normally have at least this amount of drinks and more if you include shots and the socializing of a whole evening out or at a party with friends! Maybe it is just bad timing and a coincidence of date night and me catching a bug or something. I feel embarrassed for having a hang over, but maybe I am getting more sensitive to alcohol or maybe it was the Rockstar in it or the fact of my schedule catching up with me!
I need to sort out my life and set out better boundaries and decide what it is I want out of life. My heart says family and fun and more time to enjoy them. My schedule says money and time away from my family. This weekend I am scheduled to work my normal Friday (4-9) and Saturday till close and Sunday for the Seahawks game at the bar! One saving grace is that tomorrow is house cleaner day! I miss having the time to pull out the Fridge and Oven and sweep behind them once a month. Wonder what it looks like under there now after not doing it for 4-5 months?
I want to buy The Hubs the car he wants. I want to go on vacations and travel. I want my daughter to be able to dance and not be broke and for my son to be able to play any sport and be able to buy him nice gear for said sports. We need the extra money in order to keep doing our lives the way we do our life. I do miss the family when I am at work and want more time home to take care of the house and spend time with them but I enjoy not having battles and stress about money, but still hate the battles about housework and crazy schedules we fight out of stress. We can afford to do a lot of fun things but we don’t have the time. How do we balance this? I just can’t figure it out.
I need to schedule our life better. Make lists and be more organized. But, I don’t have time to do that! I need to MAKE time!!!! But, it shows that I don’t have time to not do it either! I need to figure this out I am frustrating and annoying myself with my craziness. But in all fairness I do enjoy everything I do. I am happy while doing it. I just wish I could do everything I need like 8 more hours in everyday and then I would be fine. Ooh and a Rosie (you know like the Jetson’s) I need a Rosie!
I just want to enjoy life and skip the struggles of house work and grocery shopping and trips to Walmart fixing cars and yard work ect…. I want to do the watching the kids dance and play football and dance with my husband get back to golfing and go camping types of things!
With all this complaining and negativity here I want to say I love my life and I am happy to have the family that I have to share it with and to spend the slivers of time we get to spend together! My kids rock my Hubs is the best and I do love my life!
