This week I am 3rd shift but next week I get to go back to 1st shift. Yeah sorta. But I work Mon-Sat yep for the next two weeks 6 day weeks. Never mind that I can't remember the last time I didn't work 6 days a week except for my daughters graduation party weekend. I just think I am burned out since this past Sunday I worked 14 hours.
I am so tired at the moment, and feeling sorry for myself. I feel like I have given this company most of my weekends since I started (even though I am a contractor), extra time during the weeks. My contract is up this Sunday and they have been saying for a few months that they where going to hire me or extend my contract. Guess what they are extending the contract. Good thing I have a job. Bad thing is I still don't have a permanent job. Now I started to pay Cobra which is kinda expensive (most of one of my paychecks).
I am happy that I have some kinda of a job with this economy, but I think I am getting worn down. It's one thing to work so much showing them you are a good employee and hope to get hire. It is another to work so hard and then they extend your contract. I should be fair my boss said that the paperwork is almost approved. But if it was almost approved why would the contract be another 6 months, instead of 1 or 2 months. I just don't get it. Since I was never a contractor before this is all new to me, and I am not sure if they can do 1 or 2 months.
I think I am upset because I am tired. Maybe I shouldn't post this but it is helping just typing. Plus I was waiting for my room to cool off before I went to sleep. I can think of Pros of going back to 1st shift, Sleep regular hours, Not as much overtime since 2nd shift comes in on time instead of 3rd shift where we may have to hang around until 1st shift starts (or on Saturdays when everything is done). The other good thing is I still have a job, and I am not un-employed. If I keep looking at the positive I should be okay. There are cons but I will try to think positive.
That's all for now sorry to bore everyone. Maybe I will give a real update once I am back on 1st :)
