Dear Friends, This is the end of a very exhausting week, but I am feeling very good about things. Just trying to take things one step at a time. If I start to think about all the things that are going on right now, I get overwhelmed and start to panic.
I started a new job this week at the University. Today was my second day. Day 1, I thought my head was going to explode! Today was a little better, but I am a slow learner. I heard my trainer tell someone that I had only really learned one thing so far. I am sure she is thinking that I am a slow learner, too! I keep telling myself to just do the best I can. That’s all I can do. This is a really good job(at least good for me), and I so want it to work out and also to be good at it. It’s not something I have ever done before or have any skill in doing. My friend hired me, and I am so grateful for the opportunity. It doesn’t help that my glasses are broken and I could hardly see what I was typing or the computer screen. It is a very fun, professional atmosphere, even though what I do is kind of boring…hard, but boring. It is 3 days a week, so I can still visit with my lady friend twice a week. This means I am working 5 days a week. Something I haven’t done in a very long time! I haven’t gambled in about a month. This busyness has helped with that. I have to admit I have thought about it a lot. I guess I think that gambling would be an escape from all the stress I am under. Like that would help!!! There are lots of other ways to escape, why does my mind go to just one?
Have a great weekend. My husband is taking me on a special outing tomorrow for my birthday. An ESCAPE!!! I am going to think about how much I am looking forward to it and try to take my mind off of those gambling urges!
