Leave of Absence from work

Thursday, July 14, 2011

Finally realized trying to work 40 hours AND handle the closing of Mom's estate is too much. So I put in for 3 weeks of personal leave, so that I can really get going on clearing out her condo, while also having some time to rest. I plan on starting that process tomorrow morning.

I meet up with my bestie, Andrea, for a run at about 12, so I'll head to Mom's in the morning, start really clearing stuff out, then head to A's to run. After that, I need to get home to get ready for a wedding out in RI.

I'm really glad I was able to make this leave of absence happen. I don't know how I thought I'd be able to do all of this without it!

    I don't know much about handling estates, but I can imagine cleaning out your mom's condo is going to be very hard in more ways than one. Try to enjoy some of that time off.

    That was a great decision on your part. I have seen too many friends try to juggle personal stuff, i.e., estates,and working full time. Hopefully this will allow you some time to take care of yourself as well. You know that you are always in our thoughts and prayers.

    I think you made a GREAT choice for yourself. If you can manage, why not give yourself a little time. You've been through an incredibly tough journey and the journey ahead will also not be easy. My best to you always.
