well I am trying not to panic in many areas. The election has me kind of down to be honest. We are barely making it as it is and I have a feeling the economy is just going to get worse. I really am stuck with my job situation. Not enough babysitting kids to make ends meet...but have been unable to find another job. Even a part time 2nd job. And 2 of my dads work at a plant that is going to lay off after the 1st of the year. Praying neither one of them get laid off!! That would leave me with only one child!! Hubby's work is extremely slow right now...he is midnights supervisor and most nights he has his crew sweeping the floors because there is nothing to do!! Last time it was this slow they axed the midnight shift.
I have been stress eating a bit and with the weather exercising hasn't been as consistent as usual. As a result I have gained 2 pounds. I know...not like it's 10. But I am well aware of how quickly it can creep back on. The last thing I want is to go backwards in my spark lifestyle. I am frustrated because it is just so expensive at the grocery store!!! And fresh fruits and veggies are hard to find. Apples are in plenty but they are $2 a pound! Good grief. I know I am whining again...sorry
I am really trying to get a handle on it.
still think I need a punching bag
With the holidays coming it is so different this year. With the kids spread all over it's hard. We can't get to the west coast or the east coast...Karyn should be home for December so the house won't be completely empty. but Thanksgiving is my tough holiday. Daddy died the day before Thanksgiving. It will be 15 years this year. My family is in full dysfunctional mode and Terry's family doesn't get together for Thanksgiving any more (too much of a bother evidently). so we are going out of town for the day. I know if I go to my family's I will say something I shouldn't
So with no kids here we are taking off. Just not worth the added stress.
Well I think that is enough whining for one post
Thanks for being my sounding board everyone
And my husband thanks you
he does get weary of my stressing
