The end of September and most of October I found to be difficult. I didn’t really talk to anyone or do much of anything, other than work on Christmas presents. I was feeling pretty low. Work was getting unbearable, the worst it had ever been. The impending take over by the new company and not having any information about what was going to happen was really stressing everyone out and lead to everyone pretty much treating each other like shit. Not a very fun environment to be in. I started to push people away. I avoided talking whenever I could, it just seemed easier. Kara started acting out a lot. She stopped listening, started throwing the worst temper-tantrums she has ever had and cried over any little thing. I think it might of been just a part of the transition to school, and having to wake up early. We made sure she got enough sleep. Still haven’t figured out exactly what was wrong, but she is much happier now. Part of that might have to do with me being happier too. I got invited out for lunch with some girl friends a couple of weeks back and my entire mood just brightened up. Even when you’re a pretty big introvert, like myself, you should never count out a talk with your friends, it does the mind and soul some good. Thanksgiving was really good too. Kara asked if we could give her cousins Alyssa and Madison the owl hats I had crocheted for them that weekend. So we did and they loved them. And now it seems like nearly everyone wants me to make them one. Oh boy. I’m not sure if I will, but they definitely have to wait until after Christmas, I have enough to do and my hands are going to want a rest.
Now that the takeover has officially happened, the mood at work has eased up a lot, at least from what I’ve noticed. And it is quite a relief.
Now that I’m feeling better, I’ve made plans to do things for pretty much every weekend in November and I am looking forward to every single one. Friday is date night for hubby and I. We’re going to see Thor: The Dark World and we’re really looking forward to seeing it. It looks super good. And next weekend I’ve got a Lia Sophia party with some friends and a Just for Laughs show. I’ve got a week off of work starting Saturday and I am really looking forward to it. I plan on getting most of my Christmas presents all done. We got Kara’s Christmas shopping all done, so that’s a big thing off of our list for Christmas. It’s a pretty good feeling.
I now this post wasn’t written super well and was a little all over but I felt I needed to just get this out. Thanks for bearing with me through this post and I promise some crafty goodness in the next one, and photos! Happy Thorsday every one
