Bad Girl During a Bad Year
Saturday, October 31, 2009
The past year has been pretty bad, and I've been bad right along with it. My boss was being completely evil to me and I went to a counselor for the first time in my life to deal with it (and the counselor completely freaked me out because she gave me a printout of how to deal with that type of boss, and it said that type of person was the type who randomly snapped and injured or killed people, but usually not at work). Then my good friend and coworker got laid off, my boss quit (which was a very good thing) so that left two of us to pick up the work of 4 people, then my stepdad died and my mom ended up losing a lot of things over the past several months, including her vehicles and house, and she's been making all sorts of bad decisions and I've been really stressed about that, and the layoffs continued every couple of months throughout the year so we were all constantly in fear of losing our jobs (and several friends did lose their jobs), and on and on. I don't know exactly why, but I gradually switched back to all of my old habits and have gained back quite a bit of the weight I had lost. Ug. Now things are starting to look up and I guess I'm coming out of my funk, and I'm almost ready to start working on myself again. I'm leaving for a 3 week vacation to New Zealand in less than a week though, so it's not really practical for me to try to start back on SP right now, but I'm hoping I'll be mentally ready when I get back from vacation to get back to work and start taking care of myself again. I'm hoping you'll all see me back here on a regular basis starting in December!
