Stressful Year End – Ready To Ring In The New Year!!!

The month of December for me has been a pretty stressful month to say the least.  You would think Christmas and shopping are the reasons for my stress but to be honest those two things were the least of my worries.  I have been going through some personal issues along with Sabreena’s surgery and also add on top of all of this a new job and I am at my stress limit.

I have been flip flopping on a new job offer since the beginning of December.  The offer is like anything else in life as it has its positives and its negatives.  Unfortunately I have been extremely unhappy at my current job that even with the negatives of the new position I still feel I am better off then staying where I currently am.  I hope I am making the right decision but I guess there is no turning back now.

I am so looking forward to the New Year and hoping things start to look up and things start to pan out like they are suppose to as I can’t deal with to many more months like this December.

Come on 2011 I am ready for ya!!!!

Are you ready to ring in 2011???

What Am I Suppose To Do?

What is one suppose to do when they lose there passion at their job?

First off after being unemployed for 4 months at the end of 2009 beginning of 2010 I am thankful to have a job but I have lost my passion for it. When I accepted this job it wasn’t my 1st choice but at the time it was my ONLY choice. I started as a temp with the hopes of becoming a permanent employee which I was and still am told over and over will happen. I have been told this over and over since February and it is now almost October and guess what I am still a temp. I understand the economics of the situation but what is taking so long? Melinda and I have been without benefits since November 2009 so it is almost a year with no doctors’ visits or check ups or scheduled dental visits. Recently I needed a root canal which I am paying for out of my pocket for a grand total of $1,050 which isn’t chump change.

I think it is the fact that I am promised something over and over and it never comes to light that really has me bummed out. Again, don’t get me wrong I am extremely happy to be employed I just wish promises were kept and were followed through.

Sorry about the crabby post today!

My Job as Mom

It’s hard; whoever told you motherhood was going to be easy was a liar and setting you up for disaster. Early mornings, late nights, interrupted sleep, messy house, wrinkled clothes, no alone time; these are just some of the things moms look forward to on a daily basis.

Don’t get me wrong, everyday isn’t a whirlwind of laundry, errands and school meetings. Some day’s you’ll have sweet moments cuddling on the couch reading “But Not the Hippopotamus” 14 times or heart to heart talks about the difference between mimosas and margaritas.

Each day is different and brings new challenges, new obstacles, new miracles, new laughs and new smiles. With all the hard times and headaches also come overwhelming heart pounding love each time the words “mommy, I love you” is uttered from their lips. Watching them grow and seeing the impact they make on the world around is all worth it.
