I've been beyond exhausted lately. We're chronically short-handed at work and one more young man got sacked this week. They aren't replacing workers; just expecting us to work harder and take up the slack. About the time the tourists arrive in hordes they will BEGIN the hiring process, if they can find anyone willing to apply. And then we get to train them in in the midst of the seasonal rush. Do I sound bitter? I am SO GLAD this is my last summer with this outfit! (Sorry for the rant.)
Meanwhile, this morning (this is my first full weekend off in a month) I forced myself out of the house and attended my church's Widow's Luncheon. I didn't attend the last one because I'm such a homebody I find it hard to make the effort to drive all the way back into town (12 miles) on a day off. ;) But I'm glad I went. It reminded me that it's good to be part of a fellowship of believers. I enjoyed exchanging stories with the ladies at my table. The lunch of soup, salad and rolls was delicious and we all appreciated the love and effort that went into the event. One of the church ladies who is also part of the worship team is a recent widow and she shared some scripture. We also watched an old episode of I Love Lucy (the chocolate factory one) on a huge screen. It was all fun. I will make an effort to get back to being involved in church. A friend suggested joining a small group, since that might be easier with my work schedule. Church will be a priority next fall when I find a new job.
Oh, and I did take a nice nap when I got home. Feeling much more human!
I so appreciate all of you blogging buddies out there! I really love reading about what's going on in your lives. Keep up the good writing and sharing!
Here is my latest set of ATC's for a swap called For the Love of Scotland.
