Hello all and hugs

Sorry I haven't been on much. Things at work were very stressfull. Everyone was busting their butts to keep things going.

But it wasn't enough.

I've lost my job, along with a few others in the office, and I'm told more will be going.

Soooo I'm a little stressed right now. Brain fog and stress do not go well together.

I may not be saying much, but I am here reading. So far I haven't had and health issues due to the stress. But I'm willing to make a bet that interviews (Hopefully there will be some) will push all my stress buttons.

Any way, you are all in my thoughts. I will be on the board.

SITC-

I'm so very sorry that you've become yet another casualty to the economy. The stress of having to apply for a new job and the energy to dazzle a prospective employer (not to mention financial issues) will undoubtedly be there, but do your best to deal with all that nasty stuff. Try to find something (besides chocolate :) ) to get you thru this rough time so it doesn't affect your health.

Take care and best of luck. Please let us know how you're doing.

Sits,

I am so sorry to hear that. That is awful and yes very, very stressful.

My husband was laid off in December after 19 years. No severance, nada along with 4-5 other employees. Our insurance was through him. Thankfully we have been able to COBRA put the company is now creating a very high deductable. I wish I didn't have insurance because we will never hit the deductable unless one of us ends up in the hospital.

I will keep you in my prayers and I hope you find a job that you love that is less stressful very soon. Keep your chin up and the fight.

God Bless,

Faith

Hey SITC.

Sorry you got let go. It is stressful, I know how you feel. I'm down to one kid in my day-care. Although not due to economy, competition up the road a few miles with better location than me. Its hard no matter what the reason may be. Things do get better. Like I got a call and visit from a parent I used to sit for yesterday. She wants to go back to work, and rather come to me since she knows me and kids liked me. I do hope she really shows, that I'm nervous for. Things do get better, it just takes time. Stress will be there, but try not to fret. Yes, easier said than done. Good Luck and may there be many interviews your way soon.

Hello and welcome home SITC;
I am so sorry to hear that you've lost your job. This job-loss thing is like a plague for our entire nation and it appears that it is going to get worse before we start to see any new jobs created.
I am glad that you are doing Ok healthwise and that your family is OK. It is so good to have you back. I wish the circumstances were better, but we are so very happy that you are here!

Peace and Blessings
Namaste

Well, I've licked my wounds, dusted off my resume, found a few jobs I'm applying for this week.

My biggest problem is the lingering disbelief. I've got that stuck in limbo feeling and not sure which way to move.

Then to add to the joy....my dearly loved 12 yr old dog...(he's fine now by the way) came to my sided yesterday with his face swollen up like a puffer fish.

So :-| off to the vets, he had a badly abcessed tooth. Vet asked me what I wanted to do...I looked down at my angel boy, he rolled his hears up and put on he's best "please mommy" look.

Gawd help me, I told them to go ahead and remove the tooth and give me the prescriptions and I'd find some way to pay the bill.

He's part of my family, I just couldn't let him down.

He was such a good boy, no growling no snapping even though he was in such pain.

When I brought him home all groggy from being knocked out for surgery, the cat crawled all over him to welcome him home and give him a full body cat scan :)

He just layed there and wagged his tail.

Do I regret spending money I dont have....nope. I love my dog.

Well back to the resume and gathering letter's of reference.

Hey SITC,

So glad to hear from you, again...I am praying that you find a job super fast...and this time one without as much pressure as the last one afforded you.

I think it would be like adding insult to injury not to have helped your sweet dog...glad to hear it was only an absessed tooth and not something fatal.

It's good to have you back Susan. I was ready to send out a search party. Sorry to hear about your job. But, this may be an opportunity to find something better. I know you were getting frustrated at the old job. Glad to hear your dog is OK. I would spend my last penny on my cats if they needed an expensive procedure done. My cat Sophie just had a bad tooth removed, and it was big bucks, but I don't care, she's very much worth it. Hope the new job search yields some good results ASAP. Talk to you later!

SITS...Hi you...tight head hugs....squuueeeeeze.

Successful living requires courage. Perhaps courage is a basic life quality which God gives us, since it is of spirit. Moments may come when courage alone shall stand between us and disaster. In the long pull across the years there will be times we shall need dogged courage to keep us going when the going is hard. And what is the source of such rugged courage? Surely that sense of God's presence when we hear Him say, "I am with you always." Norman Vincent Peale.

Now, go take on the day, week...:653:

SITS-
Sorry to hear of your faithful companion's tooth. Tucker, our beloved retriever mix, didn't eat all of his meal on Sunday night and didn't touch his dinner last night either. It's off to the vet for him this evening :( It's heartbreaking when you see them suffering......

Our pets are like our children (without that talking back feature!) and we'll do anything to relieve their suffering.

Best of luck in your job search.

Murphey's Law to animal ownership. As soon as we are broke, the dog gets sick. It is always when I can't hardly move that one of my 5 dogs has to puke all over the house or have a very bad bout of diarea in the middle of the night.

We have a goofy chihuahua that has had several teeth removed in the front, he has a goofy crooked smile, he's on drugs for seizures, and will sneak out of the house walking under the belly of one of the big dogs as they walk out...lol..drugged out little sneaker.

Hoping you get a better job than you had before.

Hi,

Oh i hope a fab job comes along for you soon and it WILL be so much better than the last one.Things happen for a reason and usually for the better.Oh your poor little dog. Glad he had that tooth pulled and hope he feels better after today. Yes money never matters when its your pets. I so miss my Daisy, has'nt got any easier yet.But i remember when she had 2 teeth pulled, the next day, she went deaf. Same happened to our Soosie, how weird is that.But saying that, Daisy was 15 n Soosie 16 so maybe it was just coincidence.But they were so much happier afterwards once the dreaded teeth were pulled.

Love
Angel.xxx

BonusMom I hope your Tucker is doing well?

Thanks every one for your well wishes for myself and for Schultz, he says to give ya all a big slurp.

The swelling has finally gone down in his face and the cat has finally left him alone. The cat was standing guard over Schultz all night. It's funny how protective they are of each other.

I've had pleasure of Schultz's company for many years. He has given me so much comfort and joy.

I hope I don't offend any one, but there's a little joke that sums my dog up and I'ld like to share it with you.

Want to know why dog's are man's best friend?

If you locked your wife and your dog in the trunk of the car for an hour, the dog would wag his tail when you finally let him out. :)
