April

So this has been a crazy, stressful and totally unpredictable month.

First...out of the blue I got a job offer in Dallas. It was an amazing opportunity and really wish I could have taken the offer but because of the housing market I just could not swallow the loss I'd have to take on the house. It sure would have been nice to be closer to family but we really do LOVE it here in Seattle.

Second...this seems to be a month for deaths. There are 4 people that passed away in the same week and 2 of them were suicides. Talk about out of the blue and totally taken back. I'm still lost for words.

Third...work has really stressed me out lately. There's a guy that I work with who never shows up before lunch and half the time he doesn't come in until after 1p. How the heck are we supposed to get his support if he's never there to support us?!?! Speaking of support, the group I'm supporting has been bringing me to the brink of insanity. They'll request something from me and two seconds later I'm getting phone calls, emails or drop ins asking the status. They'll request a status meeting for the status meeting. Give me a break already! I'd get it done faster if you'd stop micro-managing and let me do my job already. I've never missed a deadline and there's a reason I'm the "go to gal."

The only positive thing I can think of that has happened this month is my dad's birthday and the fact that I reached my 10% goal at WW. Love you dad!!

I'm generally a positive (but realistic) person and try not to dwell on the bad stuff but this month has really sucked. I'm ready for May and my Alaskan cruise.

Stepping off of my soap box now...
