Missing in action on and off....

Monday, June 11, 2018

Hello everyone,

Been checking in as often as I can lately. If I've missed a blog of yours that I usually don't, I'm sorry. I hope to be back on more often again soon.
A lot of you know that I've been anxiously studying for a test for work. It's had me totally frustrated because I keep falling asleep during the practice exams!!
I've taken to loading up on "Monsters" to TRY to stay awake!
Anyway, I've GOT to have a GOOD handle on it by Thursday as it's the last day I'll be able to studying online again. I've only been studying for this stupid test for over a year now. Too many other things come up as distractions!
I TRULY want to get this behind me though so I've been spending less time on my favorite websites and more time studying. Of course, I'm not studying at this moment because I just came home from physical therapy and have a bunch to do before going to bed. Been trying to get into bed no later than 8:30 in hopes that the extra sleep will help the situation.
I really don't know what I'm going to do if they decide that I'm STILL not ready to take the test or if I fail it. I'm about done in with it all. HATE that I have to take it anyway. HATE that everyone else who has to study for it are doing so on company time and I can't!!
…….No, I'm not going to start going there. This will be longer than a book if I get started on that.
Either way, I've had it with this job. Ready to throw in the towel and try to find something else. Problem is that we got the diagnosis that DH has Prostate Cancer. AND the insurance is from the company I work for, of course.

While this cancer is usually "slow growing" for some unknown reason his has become aggressive. We've talked about it and decided that he's going to have surgery to get rid of the prostate and, hopefully, ALL of the cancer along with it. Neither of us are looking forward to this, but it's better than the alternative.

Gotten off track a bit. Anyway, these are the reasons I've been noticeably absent over the last few weeks. Have a lot on my plate and no where to dump it until I work it all out.
Wish me luck. If I can't get this test in, I will need to figure out something else.

Been struggling A LOT with my weight too. Too much stress does NOT do well for me. Pray for us, if you're so inclined to do so.
Thanks for all who leave lovely quotes and such on my page. I'm very thankful for every little bit that makes me smile at least once per day.
Sending Love and Blessings out to all. emoticon emoticon
