Okay. Too much has occured in my life to put it all down here and now. Suffice it to say.. Life goes on whether you’re ready for it to or not. I found out yesterday that a friend of mine got laid off in my department because they couldn’t afford to keep her. It sucks. If there was someone I wanted to see go first, it definitely wasn’t HER. I pray that she’s able to get unemployment to help suppliment her child support because she’s got three kids to care for and now no job.
We’ve already been cut down to 32 hours a week, and if our department doesn’t pick up in business, I’m sure we’ll be forced to drop more hours. *sigh*
On the plus side- I’ve reconnected with one of my best friends. This friendship stems from Highschool, when I was fourteen. We drifted apart when we broke up. I never should have allowed myself to date one of my best friends, but one of his gifts is persistance, and after 8 years at the time, he wore me down. The only regrets I have from that relationship is that it failed and screwed our friendship up in the process. Now I’m married and he’s got what sounds like a great girlfriend, so here’s hoping they work out!
On another “plus side”- The Beach waterpark opens in 2 weeks. While I don’t think there’s enough sunblock in the world to prevent me from burning since I burn easier than toast does, Heather and I got addicted to the waterpark last summer so it’s worth the trouble. By the by, Heather, YOU’RE GOING ON OPPENING DAY! NO EXCUSES. NONE! I’ll tell Mark to shave his head if you don’t go, so there! *sticks her tongue out*
Well, while this hasn’t been entirely informative on the goings on of my life, it’s all you’re getting for now. Please pray for continued healing for Joel after his surgery on April 6th. The swelling continues to go down, but it’s still causing him a lot of pain.
Fare thee well till next our paths cross. *waves as she slips back into the shadows of cyberspace and back ‘neath her velvet lined rock*
