I'm not a bad bad husband

I got slightly less lazy. Yay me. the same night as my bad husband blog I sucked it up and finished cleaning the baby room, complete with crawling around on my hands and knees (stop picturing it Culver) scrapping paint off the floor. Then last night I swept and mopped 1000 square feet of floor! This was after I actually put dishes in the dishwasher and spent an hour standing watching Haley play soccer. I even pulled out the Mr Clean Magic Eraser and scrubbed the stuck on dirt from around our entrances. Now if only I could fix the toilet so that I didn't have to stick my hand in the tank and manually put the stopper on everytime we flush.

I'm a bad bad husband

I'm lazy, I don't try to hide it or make excuses, I'm just plain old lazy. This lazyness has brought upon a new low recently though. It's gotten so bad my lovely wife is now advertizing for a stunt husband, a man to come in and do the yard/house work that needs to be done. Recently my lovely wife has weeded all our gardens, trimmed some trees, cleaned up our house etc... In fact as we speak she's doing laundry. Of course this wouldn't normally be all bad, but with her being 34 weeks pregnant she shouldn't really be having to do all this stuff. Now it's not all bad last night I was put in charge of cleaning up the nursery a bit, this after taking about 4 extra weeks to paint it. I think I did a great job of moving a chair and taking the tape off half the baseboards. I think I need some motivation or a swift kick in the ass, I think I'll let Kiki decide which.

Work sucks right? Well up until last August I loved my job. The last week I enjoyed my job I was in Vegas. Why do I now hate my job you ask? (yes I'm aware you didn't) my old boss retired. I worked for Kiki's dad for over 10 years, I loved working with him, in many respects he's my best friend, he's the guy I go to for advice and when I need to talk to someone.

For the last 11 months I've worked for the company, we haven't had anyone in our office that is in charge of anything nor have we had any real supervision, normally that would be great, but all it's done is remind me how political this company is and how my never sucking up has screwed me. I spent years training to take this place over, I took courses, went on company training, did the business plans etc.... but once Dan left the company decided they were going to look elsewhere, that I wasn't what they were looking for. Suffice it to say this did not exactly thrill me, but at the same time it's a sinking business and there isn't as much money in it as there once was so I hadn't been sure I wanted to drop the $400,000 anyways. Now we are getting a new boss, they have hired a lady who starts on July 15th, this basically spells the beginning of the end for me, there is no way in hell that she will be able to afford to pay me what I am worth or even what I make now. Basically within the next 2 years (you are an agent in training for 2 years, I still work for the company for those 2 years) I'll be out of a job. I'm not worried about finding work, I'm very marketable and hold licenses that make it super easy for me to find work, but I'm left empty I put my heart and soul into this place for years and years and in the end it will be for nothing.

Maybe I just need to go back to Vegas.
