Guess I should give an update even though it depresses me to talk about it. Last week I found out my position at work was being reassigned. I am going back to a position I started out in here 11 years ago. I've been in my current position for 5 ½ years. I really did not see this coming, despite knowing the agency was making some major changes. I do have to say that I have not turned to food like I usually do when this stressed and upset. I just feel devalued by this agency. And like they don't care that I feel that way. My husband has been positive through all of this, which has helped a bunch. I'm trying to take everything one day at a time. There are still a lot of rumors going around and a lot of answered questions. I say if you're going to make major changes like this, you should have a plan! But, it's the state, so they didn't. ha!
I am still trying to look for another job, but that hasn't gone real well either over the last 8 months!

Well, I am a little better than I was yesterday. My husband kind of had a meltdown (nothing to do with me, just life in general for him too). After that he felt better and I felt a little better, so we had a good evening. We are really looking forward to the National Down syndrome Congress conference in San Antonio this weekend. We leave Thursday morning. I took tomorrow off. We have plans for lunch, registering KK in school, and running some other errands. Even tho it's all work, it will be nice to have an afternoon just he and I. It's been awhile. And we all love to travel! We plan to go to Whole Foods once we get there and stock up on some healthy things in the hotel room. We'll also do a lot of walking I'm sure and some swimming.
First tho, we take the kiddo to her doc at 3:30 today to talk to her about the diarrhea and vomitting when we travel, hoping to find something to help the baby girl with that!!

Without going into detail (it would end up being a book!) I am so frustrated with life...my marriage, my job, my weight, my health, my husband's mental health, my daughter's disabilities, my depression...it's just getting harder and harder to see positivity in life. Of course the only thing I'm NOT frustrated with is my perfect daughter. If it weren't for her, I just don't know...

Today my daughter's "music" teacher (Ladeeda formerly known as Kindermusic) was having an outdoor picnic lunch at the botanical gardens where she was playing music and singing and dancing, so after KK got done with therapy I had my husband meet me over there. I picked us up burritos and drinks and we had a picnic then she got to see Ms. Celeste and do some dancing. It was a lot of fun! and a nice break from the office.
This Saturday Barney is in town and I got us tickets. I can't wait to see KK's face!!!!
She was a "rock star" for the 2012 calendar that our local support group puts out. The theme was "what I want to be when I grow up". Here is her picture:

I can't believe it's been over 2 weeks since I had started walking again. My husband even asked me what happened to my walks?? I was loving them. but got busy and let life interfere. Traveled for work, then we just got back from a 4 day vacation. Although we did a LOT of walking during that-at the zoo, the aquarium, walking at the mall, and swimming a lot! So it was fun. I only gained 2 pounds in these last couple of weeks which was much better than I had anticipated. We leave again in about 10 days for a 5 day road trip-the Down syndrome conference in San Antonio.
But I did weight in this morning and am going to work on getting back to checking my blood sugar once a day. My husband was not too happy with me when he found out I had not brought my glucose monitor with me on vacation!!!
