Stressed…

My ass is numb. That was all I could think/not feel my last hour of work from sitting in a chair most of the day.  And here I sit again to surf the internet and write this post. I am beyond a horrible blogger with infrequent posts. This is my place to express myself and why I set up this blog, yet I don’t post as much. I think of great posts at the most inopportune times, while drifting off to sleep, while walking to work, at work etc. I thought of a great one this morning and I lost it… Well here I am expressing myself.

I am very stressed out at the moment. 2 1/2 weeks ago in a 24-hour period we had some life changes take place.

-We adopted a cat from the local SPCA

-I found out my contract wasn’t being renewed at work

-We found out we were moving as a military house became available

Most of these are good except the work thing as I was counting on making X amount of $ before I went on maternity leave in March and I don’t know who wants to hire a 6 month plus pregnant women who will be going on mat leave. Seems like a waste of their time and mine. This means I will be making 45% less than I anticipated for 2 months as I will be going on EI (Employment Insurance) earlier than I had intended. This also means my claim is only good for 52 weeks (which normally starts when the baby is born) and I will be going back to work (where I don’t know) when my baby is approximately 9 months old; which means I will miss a whole bunch of milestones in that 3 month period.

Our cat is a blessing and I am so happy to have her.

Moving right before Christmas??? Well moving period is stressful enough added to this time of year (I hear the suicide rates go up this time of year; I wonder why?) which is also stressful enough itsself. Not to mention the pressure to buy and wrap presents, and make an effort for everything else that goes along with this time of year. I couldn’t be more stressed. And let’s not forget the pregnancy, the cold I have, and the less than ideal working situation I have with a not pleasant co-worker. This is not making for a fun Christmas.

I don’t blog about a lot of stuff in my life regularly; which you know if you stop by here now and then. We chose to move before Christmas as opposed to after as we both want to be settled before Christmas instead of having to move on Dec 31st/Jan 1st. We are leaving our one bedroom condo for a 3 bedroom townhouse the extra room will be nice to have after living in our current place. So don’t be surprised if I am not around much in the next week or so.

I will be creating a Flickr account as a favorite blogger of mine had pictures of children stolen and the only way in which to view them is to have an account. I don’t like idea of Flickr as it seems like a lot of work (I don’t know this for a fact, it is just an extra account to maintain) however, it is a reason to upload a bunch of scenic shots of places I have vacationed and of the beautiful place where I live British Columbia. You won’t be seeing any headshots of me, as I want to remain anonymous. I am undecided if I will post pictures of my baby once s/he is born.

Happy Weekend to all of you! I am off to a weekend of packing and Christmas shopping.
