What a Difference a Week Makes!

On my last post I was not feeling my best......could you tell? But this week has gone much much better-as far as work goes, and right now, that's a huge part of my life. I switched trainers which I was not all too happy with at first but after this week at work, I'm very glad I did. I really liked my old trainer a lot-she was great but we were both perfectionists and that is so very hard to work under. I was stressing a lot and am now on anxiety pills....but this week is so different. I dont know if its the pills kicking in or the trainer switch. I am actually enjoying going to work and dont dread it like I was before. Today was my Friday and I was actually bummed I dont get to go back for 3 more days! Funny how things change! My week was a busy one though-some pretty tough phone calls that really drained me. But it was good and I got a lot of practice with my multi-tasking skills. Thankfully today was a very slow day because we both needed a "breather" day.
Today was kinda a hard day though-I found out today that my Grandma took a turn for the worse and probably wont make it through the night. She is 96 years old and has lived a good life. The last few years have been hard though-especially this last year. Her body is very slowly shutting down-I'm sad to be losing her but I am happy that she knows Jesus and is going Home!!
It was a bitter sweet kind of Mothers Day-lots of emotions. I was emotionally tired from work and sad for Grandma but am so thankful for the family that God has given me! They are all so good to me!!

I'm glad to hear that your job is becoming less stressful, even if it could be the pills kicking

It's hard to let go of special grandparents. Mine are almost 90 and I hope they live forever!

I would love to see more photos of Elliot so that I can see how big he is getting.
