Some days my brain works some days it don't, lol. I always try to keep a mental note of missing peeps here at the forum and then I forget till it resurfaces again. I use to have one of the very best memories around. At work we relied alot on what I could remember on cases and clients. Compared to then and now I am brain dead. Sometimes I do get a little aggravated because I can't remember things well. My daughter hits me with, mom, thats old news don't you remember me telling you that.
Yes, I do remember your son getting engaged in November. Is this the son in Iraq? Seems his girl had a miscarriage if I remember correctly. Hope all is well there.
Yes, depression does seem to make us want to crawl in a hole doesn't it. Well, when the idiots have their meeting In Jan whatever you do-don't quit as they would like for you to do. I am sure you are right they really don't want to see you on unemployment-but do the idiots not know that is why they pay for it. People never fail to amaze me at times. I am thinking it will get really nasty and I hope you are up for the battle, if nothing else sort of mentally prepare yourself for it. But, I just believe with all my heart there is work out there for you that will be every bit as meaningful as what you are doing now, only difference is you will work like a normal person would, not some super charged die hard. Lordy, how you have managed to pull it off thus far is just beyond me. But, all those years of work like you have will catch up with you eventually and none of them wil be around to help pick up the pieces. Just not worth it. Your family and you are worth much more than any job could possibly ever be, let them be first for a change. It will be a hard habit to change no doubt, but well worth it. You have a let the job become a personal thing, don't do that please on your new job. Stop & smell the coffee or flowers, which ever you like the best, lol. Glad you are resting. Keep us posted please.
