There wasn't much time to sit and think this weekend. The hubbie was out of town for 4 days and while he was attending a friends wedding in North Carolina, I was hosting his brother and his wife, and yesterday Josh's entire family with grandparents included. It's a little bizarre having his family here without him around. And that brings about the "why are they still his family" question. I mean, we've been married for 7 years and together for almost 11. Will I reach a point when I will think "my family?". But, I digress. I just plum didn't have time to write, although I did start a new book and I think I love it so I'll let you know about that when I'm done.
I just wanted to get something down today. I'm not sure how much time and energy there will be this week. Work is getting pretty stressful and with one of our long-time staffers moving on the bigger and better things at the end of the week we've hired someone new. Hopefully she'll work out, but I'm just not optimistic with staff anymore. And now, another of our staff has quit and we're on to new employee number 2. 2 new employees in as many weeks, and the first hasn't even been trained yet. I'm there part-time and don't have the training time in my schedule, so I'm going to need to be ubber-organized (I know, more so than I already am OCD girl said) and be a time-management queen. But as I write this I feel my stomach knot and the stress shooting through the limbs. I hate it. My little family at work is breaking up and as dysfunctional as it may be, I love my little family. I'm not ready for it to change. I've gotten really great at disconnecting my work life from my home life. In fact I can usually shed the work life off once I get in the car, but I have a feeling that work is going to be following me home (at least it better be, if the newbies know what's good for them. I mean, when I say "call me if there are any problems or questions" there had better not be any know-it-alls after a week and there had better be phone calls).
So, this week I'll need love and prayers my dear friends. Lots of cyber-hugs and real ones if I see you, please. I have a funny feeling that that may be the only thing that keeps me going. Oh, and comments. Post LOTS of comments. I'm dying to know how everyone else's weekends were and what this week holds for you. Talk to me people. Talk to each other. Share amongst yourselves.
Love love love,
