A Letter to my SparkFriends
Tuesday, May 29, 2012
My apologies up front if this sounds a little whiny, but I'm 35 weeks pregnant today, hot, uncomfortable, and stressed out, so I'm feeling whiny. I know my dear friends will understand...
Anyway, I just wanted to apologize for falling off the SparkWagon this past week. I also doubt I will be overly active in the coming weeks either. I have been put in a very difficult position at work. 3 projects that have been sitting relatively dormant for the past 6-9 months are all of the sudden supposed to move forward - fast and immediately. I am the only person in my company (which, due to economic issues, has dwindled from about 15 full-time employees to 3 full-time and 3 part-time over the past 2 years), who can see these projects through. Funny thing is, I am literally about to pop! I know for a fact that I will be working up until the point that I go into labor, as well as putting time in over my maternity leave. The worst part of it all is that once these 3 projects are finished, I will probably be let go, unless we all of the sudden get some new projects. I am thoroughly convinced that these particular projects are the sole reason that I am still employed at all.
To top it all off, our lease in our branch office (which is where I am, alone) is up the end of this month. I spent all last week packing and moving boxes as opposed to spending much needed time on the aforementioned projects.
Anyway, it was the lull in work that has allowed me to be so active on SP, since I Spark mostly during the week, and I am no longer have the luxury of that time. And the last thing that I want to do in the evening after work is sit in front of my computer. I'm sure many of you can understand that!
So, while I won't actively be Sparking for a while, please know that I am thinking of all of you (especially those of you with your first marathons coming up!!) and am sparking in 'spirit'! I will still be logging on to track my miles and rack up those fitness minutes since it motivates me, and I will definitely keep everyone posted as to when the little guy arrives!!
Thank you everyone for you continued motivation and support!!
