Rough Week

This week is almost over...yeah! It's been a little rough to say the least. Hubby out of town, the little one not sleeping, and some stuff going on with my dad. Sometimes I wonder why I am being tested. It's like someone is going "Let's see how far we can take this before she snaps." In spite of it all I have managed to keep myself together, not my appearance...heavens no. Good thing hubby is out of town and not having to see my disheveled look. But I have been able to keep the household together. Rooms have been cleaned, laundry has been done, the dog has been walked, the toddler has been entertained with park play and playdates, and I have even managed to squeeze in a few workouts. It's the only way to keep my keep myself busy. If I sit down I'm afraid I will not get up. Anybody ever had that feeling?

I did accomplish something very important though. I wrote my letter of resignation and mailed it to my boss. Yes, I quit my job in these tough economic times. I can't handle the stress level right now. Not with a toddler who seem nowhere near sleeping through the night. It was like a weight had been lifted off my shoulder. Now I can focus on my family and think about what I really want to do with the rest of my life. I am interested in the field of wellness promotion rather than dealing with the acutely ill. If I can do something to prevent people from getting hospitalized in the first place then I would feel more accomplished. I'm going to look into it...after some well deserved rest. Good night everyone!


  1. I am so excited for you Monica!! Can't wait to see what you get into!! Take your time and make sure it is something you really want!

  2. Mmm, tänk om man kunde göra det...säga upp sig. I wish!

    Kram på dig.

  3. You´re a fighter, always was. Ofcourse it takes a toll, no wonder. Yes it was a week of true hell, things have to brighten up a bit now, especially now that you´ve created better odds with quiting your job. At least they cannot go on robbing you of the few morninghours you have, by phoning you early-early mornings...
