If We Were Having Coffee – A Return to Normalcy

If we were having coffee I would tell you that the last few weeks have been the most stressful I’ve had in a very long time.

To start things at work are starting to really get to me. There have been a lot of new staff changes and of course the new bosses want too come in and run things differently but they aren’t giving us employers much time to adjust. On top of that some of the small perks me and my team have earned under my old boss are being taken away, which is terrible for morale.

So I am thinking about making some changes. I work two different positions at my job and all of the stress is coming from my trainer position which I had only worked because I enjoyed it and because it gave me a few extra hours of pay a week. Well, with my girlfriend’s promotion I don’t need the money and under this new boss I no longer enjoy it so I think I will write being a trainer and just work my main position.

Just not sure when exactly I want to make these changes.

If we were having coffee I would tell that the puppy I got just one week ago turned out to be pretty sick. She’s doing much better now but for a few days we weren’t sure what was going to happen. We’ve lost two dogs in the past few years so finding out the our baby girl Lola was sick was devastating.

We noticed she was a little off when we first brought her home but we thought it was just stress. She had been transported from New Mexico, dropped at a foster home, then adopted to us, all within a two week period. Of course she wasn’t eating well and was tired.

But she deteriorated quickly. So she went to the vet and our first thought was Parvo which felt like a death sentence. We went to another vet because we found out her sibling were sick too and the rescue would cover our bill if we brought her there. They did a Parvo test and it came back negative, thank God.

So the vet sent us home with antibiotics and special food and in just three days she seems normal. She’s full of energy and I no longer feel like I have to say goodbye to a dog I just feel in love with.

If we were having coffee I would tell you that I have missed writing so much and I am hoping to get back into blogging on a somewhat regular basis. I feel terrible I want able to keep up with the A to Z challenge but I will complete my posts for that too.

I have learned one thing though, just like working everyday is a habit, not writing everyday is a habit too. The more I pushed writing to the back burner the easier or became too keep doing so. I could’ve tried harder, I admit that, but having that break felt nice, at first. Then after awhile I felt disappointed in myself.

So now I need to break that habit, I need to make writing a priority again. I feel good when I write and I miss that feeling. Plus I worry whatever progress I had made could be lost from lack of practice and focus. I hope that isn’t the case but I’ve never heard anyone say worrying was like riding a bike.

If we were having coffee I would apologize for being so late, there were a ton of chores that needed completing and I’m feeling a kirtle under the weather. I do hope you had a nice weekend though and I appreciate you stopping by to chit-chat. :)

  1. I’m glad your puppy is on the recovery…. that must be awful! We lost our dog last year to an insect bite. So it’s good to hear that it’s not Parvo.
