Back to Work


I have been off all week because my daughters have been ill. I finally went back to work today, and it was refreshing.

My boss approached me today and said she has been worried about me because I have not been myself lately.

I can't think of how I have been any different.

I am baffled. I know I have been stressed over a few things, but damn the whole bit of having to do everything myself is a strain.

This week is a prime example. If my kids were sick, I had my son or my father to be with them while I worked. If I am running late, and my baby missed the bus, I'd ask one of them to take her to school so I could make it to work on time.

Now, if they are sick, I miss work. If I am running late and my daughter misses the bus, I still have to take her, and I am even more late getting to work.

Stressed, yes! Excuse me as I vent.

Also, I have been suspecting that my married lover of seven months was going to break it off, so it should not have come as a surprise, but it did. I have been dating so I should not have been so upset that he called it off, but I was.

I didn't talk to an accountant when I sold that property so I worry about having to pay taxes on the money I got from the property.

My kids have been sick and I don't have insurance, so I am paying for their doctor visits out of my pocket.

I have a mole that has appeared and I am scared to get it looked at.

I pay my bills and my sons bills and give him a 10 or 20 spot when he asks. I told him I'd help him while he was in college. Yesterday he wanted to borrow money for his girlfriends father.

Yes, I am stressed. Could that lead to me acting a little different? Yes!

My kids have been sick all week, and I have missed work all week. The important thing is I find out what is wrong with my daughters.

Yes, I am stressed.

I need to clean my house and I hate to clean! God I need a massage. I think that will help ease my stress.

How do I turn this positive? Well, I'll leave this venting blog with an inspirational thought.

I know the feelings, just when you think it can't get harder to deal with, it does. Remember that it is the little things that can sometimes take the fun out of life. Smile and keep on truckin' baby, it will all work itself out. By the way, i might could help you out with that massage.

    Hugs... that's a lot to go through at one time... when it rains it pours. I was reading fantasia_shares last night, and she's had a rough time of it, too.

    The only good thing about stress is that it eventually ends... or I HOPE it will!

    My prayers are with you and here's another hug for the road. *HUG*
This is the reason I come here. I have wonderful, caring, loving support from all my favorite bloggers.
