Ok, so I have 8 hours. 8 FRICKING HOURS of time off from work for the rest of the year. After today, just 21 working days left. All I need is a major snow storm, a problem with the car, or something and I am out of time, and then will be out of a job. And we have snow coming this Thursday. Nothing major, and one of the local weather guys said that between now and the 11th of December we could have up to 8 inches on the ground. Of course not all at once, and that (if it comes in waves) would be managable for the snow removal guys. But truth of the matter is, I have been worried and stressing this oncoming winter since the end of last winter. I really dont know how I am going to get thru. I am starting to believe that when the new year rolls around, I will be out of work. Of course then I wouldnt have to worry about driving 45 miles one way to work everyday. I dont even want to think how the wife would react to me getting fired. I am taking it day by day, but...day by day, my stress level increases expedientially.
