I'm here.... a short update...
...Hi folks, I know it's been awhile but there's been quite a few things going on, and quite a few things not going on.
First off, I've said that there have been some changes in the workplace that I needed to wrap my brain around. As soon as I said that more changes occurred, one of which resulted in one of my co-workers leaving the company. Someone I worked closely with. And his last day was right before my one week vacation (which was this past week). That threw a bunch of things into turmoil.
And I made my own decision about employment here. It's been almost 7 1/2 years. It's time to move on. That's all I'm going to say at the moment because I need to find someplace else to move on to.
I celebrated my 35th birthday last Monday. It was a very nice day filled with some stitching, good food, a brand new kitchen toy (a bigger better George Foreman grill), and little things here and there. It was a very good week off too, but I didn't want to come back to work today. Probably part of that is because I don't want to be here anymore, but not in a disgusted sort of manner, but more in a tired and burnt out sort of manner.
It too shall pass, I'm sure. So folks, I *am* here and I've not forgotten the blog. It's just been temporarily set aside for the moment while I get some things in order and that's taking longer than I expected. I didn't mean to be away for so long, especially when I have more to say about the banning of junk food in the local schools
, about the fast food epidemic in the country
(because I've read another really good book on the subject), and other little things here and there. I just haven't had the time to sit down and put it all down on, well, screen (since I don't put these things down on paper usually)
That's all for now, I am still here... and no, it's not the end of the world, I'm not sad, upset, or anything else considering my decision about work....
