AWOL.... and I don't know for how long


I am fortunate. Just when work at my family business diminished to nothing, someone with piles of work approached me.


I've gone from knowing my job backwards and forwards to going in an hour early and staying two hours late to learn and keep halfway current. By the time I get home, I'm not worth much. I'm done. I'm tired. I have a thousand things to say and absolutely no energy to say them.

Tell me a bedtime story. Or better yet....offer to guest blog. Hell, just take over. Jay, SkyDad, Dana?

I am so grateful to be employed. I just hate not knowing what I'm doing.

In the early years of our business my husband and I worked 16 hour days 7 days a week for months, just to keep up. And that was with 20 employees.

I enjoy hard work if I'm working for myself.

It'll all pay off once you feel more comfortable. Good luck!

New things can be very exhausting but things don't stay new for long.

Congrats! It sucks to be faced with the unknown, but even worse to be faced with the unknown of unemployment. :) We'll still be here when you get back. Good luck!

You'll figure it all out in no time! You're a smart woman. Rest, relax ... we'll be here when you get back.

You just take care of yourself and we will all be waiting here for you when you get back.

But I may be tempted to post something, ya never know!

Well first of all, CONGRATULATIONS on going in to work an hour early and staying two hours late just to learn and keep halfway current. Growth is a wonderful thing!

Now ... about that posting ... Jay and Skyler's Dad can stay away this week. I've got you covered either Thursday or Friday!

Truly..you are blessed to have been approached...but I do know what it is like to be hammered...at work that is, and not drunk!

And how much longer before your BIG trip?

Thanks Dana! I can't wait to see what you come up with!

I've missed all of you, but one of you most tenderly!
