addictions and withdrawals

About 3 weeks ago, I began moonlighting at a major pharmacy/retailer.  Now, I’m sitting home after working a 7 hour shift and I’m restless because it’s the first time I’ve really had a chance to relax.

I think I’m getting addicted to work.

I was pretty lucky this week in that I had three days in which I worked both of my jobs.  I say lucky because the school year is winding down and I know I will have to find another job of some sort relatively soon; so I’m trying to get as many sub gigs as I can before the school year ends.

It’s only been one week that I’ve been really busy and I find myself restless at the prospect of sitting here with nothing to do.  Do work addictions happen this quickly?

I haven’t talked to The Kid much in the last several days.  In part because I’ve been working a lot of nights this week; also in part because he is only returning my calls sporadically.    Last week, I booked airplane tickets to pick him up for a week at the end of the month.  I’m stoked to see him but right now our relationship seems a little rocky.  He and I need this time together, but I fear it will be a little awkward at first.

Who am I kidding?  I’m always afraid of how awkward things are going to be  with him.  Given our recent history, I think I’m pretty well justified in this fear.
