digging deep and finding

Sunday, November 27, 2011

I haven't posted a blog for some time now, nor have I tracked like I used to every day. Am finding myself at a crossroads, as we all do sometimes.

First off (why aren't there spell checks on this this thing :)
I didn't want to post a whiney blog, which I've pondered truley for months now. When you all stopped hearing from me a few months ago...

Since August,have been getting up at 3:45 am to be at work by 5 workng till 5pm which is ok however, covering for one guy in parts who had to retire because of a medical condition, another woman in the office who is taking kemo treatments and won't be back either (God bless them & their families both) my boss leaves at 2:30 everyday and so basically am doing three persons jobs + running our facility & helping the rest of the employees. They also cut all out wages by 6%, note this is a international company with a hiring freeze.

We found out my mom-in-law has cancer in her bones, interinal organs, breast etc is also going thru- kemo and not sure how that will all turn husband of 1 1/2 years is an only child so it's a bit of hard news on him as well.

Helping one of my children to get his life together after going thru rehab....could have been worse & almost was.

It's been a picnic of a year. I trust and believe in my life experiences have made me a strong person. Am digging deep and finding strength.
Sorry, I guess this did turn into a whiney blog after all...sorry, guess I just had to vent & share.
If you read this thanks, if not it's kool we all have our own problems, right?
I get that. Bright blessings to all.

    It's a new year and hopefully it will be a less stressful year for you. All you can do is to keep moving forward. I been away from Spark for some time and I'm sorry when you posted your blog in November I wasn't there for you. Not that I'd have the answers to your stressful times but it just is nice to know when life throws some bad punches that friends are there to lend an ear and give hugs - in our case read words and send kind words back with hugs attached :) Take good care of yourself and take one day at a time. Live in the moment and don't think too much about yesterday or worry about tomorrow. emoticon emoticon

    Oh, my friend! I knew that I had been missing you here on Spark. {{{Hugs}}}

    So very sorry about all the things in your life right now.
    NOTE: When I read your blog, it didn't sound like you were whining...

    That's unbelievable about your company, but I can say this: that's the way it is pretty much with a lot of companies. So many are just not replacing employees and they give the workload to someone who is ALREADY doing multiple people's jobs.

    oh sweetie! Your blog brings up so many things for me...
    -venting/asking for help is NOT whining. Whinging is complaining without action. Sounds like you are very active on your solution.
    -As a person with 20 months clean, thank you so much for believing in and being there for your son (we do recover), and please be aware that there are peer support groups (... Anonymous groups) which are an amazing resource (for me)of support and information, for him and for you too. There are similar peer support groups related to cancer that help as well.
    -I am not in an ideal employment situation myself and am trying to find the courage to change it.
    ps. spell check is at the bottom. I am nothing without spell check!

    Sorry to hear that things haven't been going so well. Sounds like you and your family have been going through a hard time. It's been a bear of a year for me as well. When life changing moments happen, it's hard to stay motivated in doing all of the things that you want to do for yourself and keep yourself, mentally, in a positive mode. When life tends to spin out of control, it's time to lean on a good friend. I'm here if you need an ear....

    I hope your son and mother-in-law have a quick recovery.
