Stress

I think that some stress is good. Like the stress of having a couple of orders at once. I like that stress. It inspires me to work harder and make things.

The stress I have right now though is not helpful. Next Wednesday, April 15, is not only Tax Day, it's also "D" day for associates at my work. In other words...we'll supposedly find out who is laid off and who still has a job.

It's hard to think of anything else lately...mostly because I can't plan ahead. If I lose my job my life will change drastically, but not necessarily for the worse. If I keep my job things stay pretty much the same and I can continue on as I have been for the last 9 years.

I like to plan. I'm a planner and a control freak. I admit it. :) So not knowing anything is completely stressing me to the point of not being able to create. Or write in my blogs. It's like everything else is in the back of my mind and this one event is fully up front...alone and overwhelming.

So if I seem quiet the next week and a half, you know why. And things will either become a lot more busy at home and with my jewelry (and by extension this blog) - or things will stay pretty much the same.

I'll be thinking about you-- I do hope you get to keep your job.

Good luck! I totally hear you on the stress issue--my ex has started a court case to try to get custody of our daughter (who he hasn't bothered to visit for the last several years) and I'm pretty much mentally stuck on that at the moment. It really gets me pissed off, he's been sending the police over here to have her call him (supposedly he's "concerned for her welfare") and he hasn't had a working phone for the last three months!

I'm so sorry Ruth. That is a lot more of a scary event than losing a job (in my opinion at least). I hope it all works out okay in the end!

Thanks Athena!
