Haven't had the mental energy to blog lately. There's a lot going on in my world right now and I'm just struggling to stay afloat. My job is causing a tremendous amount of stress. Like "knot in the pit of your stomach, headache causing" kinda stress.
The summer time always brings more work. The heat brings people outside and makes them a little crazy, I guess. Plus with co-workers taking vacations it increases the workload for the rest of us. I'm not faulting anyone for taking a summer time vacay. Just saying.... my workload is about triple what is normal right about now. And it's full of drama. Why can't a bad guy just break into a house and steal some jewelry anymore? Why does it have to be all about the drama these days? It's driving me over the edge. I have no tolerance for drama.
On top of that this city is in a pretty bad place. Our leaders have dug us into a very deep hole and some days I'm not sure we'll be able to climb out. They're suggesting changes that will make it much more difficult to do my job. That's if I even have a job. Well, not saying I'll be without a paycheck ... but there have been some suggestions of major restructuring which would most likely eventually remove me from my current position and send me back to where I started from. Which just makes me want to cry. A step backwards in my career would be heartbreaking for me..... on so many levels.
So I may not be around much until I can find a more peaceful place for my heart. Lately, by the end of my work day my head is aching and I feel like I can't think even one more constructive thought. No thoughts... leads to no blogging. Be back when I can catch my breath.
