I really want to quit.

November 18th, 2015 at 03:35 pm

I am very unhappy working 60 hours a week. I am not taking care of myself as well as I would like, I am tired all the time, and I have very little time for myself. I know I need to stick it out for as long as I can and while I am sticking it out I need to make good decisions and live as frugally as I can. But I am tired.

I want someone to tell me it's okay to quit...and then be my safety net in case I need help. I am a baby and a whiner right now, but did I mention I'm tired? Wink

I know that if I stick it out for even a month more I will be in a much better place. AirBnB is working out well for us this month, and when we've had 3 good months in a row then maybe I will feel like I can reasonably count on the money, but I don't feel that way yet.

In other news, I have only spent about $379 out of the $1000 I have to spend until Dec 4. I think I am going to make my goal of keeping my spending down! I still have 16 more days left, so anything can happen. But I have only 2 more grocery trips and my cell phone left to pay. And maybe another tank of gas. I can do this!

    Working so many hours is so hard. I feel for you. Do you think a day off would help give you a little breather? It's important to get plenty of sleep and eat well.

    Good luck!!

    Good luck and you are working a lot of hours so you can whine and complain. It's hard work

    60 hours is a lot. I know when I was teaching there were many weeks I worked at least that much - and tired didn't even begin to describe me. It sounds as though you have an end in sight though ... maybe the mantra of "nearly anything is doable for ____ days."

    You really need to take care of yourself more than ever - eat healthy and schedule in some rest time when you can, you deserve it.

    Nobody should work 60 hours a week! Everyone needs a work/life balance that will support their health and happiness. This is temporary, right? You have my permission to quit!

    ugh. I hope you get some breathing time! It's not easy to push yourself like that. When I get into these crazy work bouts I make sure to plan some relaxation time in the evenings - take a bubble bath and listen to relaxing music, drink tea and do some light reading. Sometimes it makes all the difference. Hope things start easing up on you!

    Cheer up buttercup! I hope you'll have time to rest over the Thanksgiving holiday.
