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 emoticon I am really trying to get a handle on it. emoticon still think I need a punching bag emoticon

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 emoticon 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 emoticon Thanks for being my sounding board everyone emoticon And my husband thanks you emoticon he does get weary of my stressing emoticon

    Stress is vry hard- I hope that you can find some peace.

    Holidays are always different for me, as my boys are usually gone. This Thanksgiving, I will spend with a friend and her son, my boys always spend it with the Ex's family. emoticon

    Oh my dear friend, my heart goes out to you. My job situation is not any better. I only work when called in. I had a 3 week sub job at a school until November 2nd but hurricane "sandy" ruined my last week. Since then only work 2 half days. And of course the added expense of fixing damaged fence and property will cost is the very least $4000. Life is tough all over. And yes the holidays are stressful to say the very least.

    I'm sorry you are struggling so much. I pray the job situations get better. That sounds like fun for Thanksgiving. I hope you have a wonderful and relaxing time.
