Moving in about 3 weeks

Monday, March 23, 2009

I have been a basket case all day. I just quit my job today and decided to move to NY where my family is from. This will be ending my 21 and a half year marriage. I have been planning this for months now but making the final decision and following thru has been the hardest thing i've ever had to do. It hurts so much.
sorry I have been MIA. Another crazy week. I love 1st shift, love it! so you will be shocked to know that I just quit my job today.
I have been planning to move to NY for many months now and I have just been putting it off, hoping my marriage problems would work out but they are only getting worse so I took the next step. i was going to work for a few more months but the more I thought about it, I figured why bother, I'm going to have a garage sale the weekend after next then packing for 1-2 weeks and then renting the U-haul and making it official.

needless to say, getting to this step has taken me a lot of soul searching and pain. I just can't go on like this anymore. My dad and one of my brothers owns several houses and trailers and I can basically have my pick of them and hopefully find one I like. I grew up in that area of upstate NY so I already know I like the area. And its country which I absolutely love. My dad still farms and I will be able to buy a couple horses in a year or 2. We had horses when I was a kid and I've really missed riding daily.

I've got a few job options also and I have some money saved up so i can just take my time and hopefully find something I enjoy.
so keep me in your prayers that I don't just melt into an emotional blob because that's what I am right now.
I ran yesterday with the dogs 4.5 miles. well most of it was running, I run intervals so I walk when I'm out of breath and run when I feel up to it. I haven't run in any races in a very long time but many years ago I ran in a 5k. I want to get back to that as I think the training for it will be very good for my waistline. And eventually I hope to run a half-marathon.

sorry I won't be on much but I will try to keep you posted in between packing, closing accts, etc.
I'm very close with my family so this is going to be a great move in the long run. getting thru the pain of ending my marriage is going to be the hardest thing I've ever done so bear with me. Hugs. kim

I know how very hard this is for you but I also know how long it has been coming too.
Sleep, walk the dogs and plan looking ahead. You have so much strength and I know you will do this!

Happy Monday!

Monday, March 16, 2009

I had a great first day on 1st shift today. Hope everyone had a nice day also. My hours are 6:30 a.m.-2:45 p.m. we get paid for lunch but not our 15 minute break so that's why the extra 15 minutes. Strange I know.
Everyone was very welcoming and friendly, and it was more relaxed than I expected. we always hear horror stories of how strict they are but it really was ok.
I already knew some people so that made it easier. Plus 3 people i worked with on 3rd shift went to the same dept with me. It really helps. the day actually passed fairly quickly.
I relaxed when I got home and then I walked the dogs 1 mile. we're having cloudy but warm weather. I will take the warmth anyday. tomorrow is supposed to be in the 60's so that will be even better.
Happy St. Patrick's day tomorrow everyone! kim

1st shift in 2 weeks

Tuesday, March 03, 2009

It will take time getting used to that after working nights for over 3 years. I'm hoping for the best though. I'm not a morning person at all. Maybe being used to being up all night will help with that. Since I'm up already in the early morning hours. Now I get really tired in the evenings, 4-9 p.m. kim

crazy week

Saturday, February 28, 2009

good afternoon everyone, sorry I have also been MIA. Such a crazy week!

I just got overwhelmed i guess. Wednesday they announced at work they are re-structuring our whole dept. Basically almost getting rid of 3rd shift at our facility so i have to make a choice to go to 1st or 2nd shift if i want to stay at this facility or choose to go to our new facility where I could choose to be on 1st, 2nd or 3rd shift there.
I kind of want to try 1st shift for a change although i would have to get up about 4 a.m. and I am not a morning person at all. So I'm leaning in that direction and hoping for the best. We decide and then they take our choices in the order of our hire date so the people with the most seniority get their choices first.I am about half way down the list so by the time they get to me i might not even have a choice. I will take it as it comes but let's just say its been a stressful week and I didn't exercise or eat right at all. caught up on my reading and sleeping and just vegged out. Ate pretty good but didn't get enough water. So I'm back on track today even though we don't find out where we are going to be working until tomorrow night (Sunday-Monday). Makes for a long weekend.
Need to walk the dogs today and just soak up some outdoors. Not sunny but I need the fresh air. Come on spring!
