Taking a Break

I'm going to stop posting for a while.

I don't know why today was the last straw, but it was. I'm going to stop posting on my personal blog and Facebook and Twitter as well.

I've been in quite a mood for quite some time and things don't look like they are getting any better. I've nearly lost my sense of humor. I don't find humor in much of anything.

I feel stuck. I'm not near my kids and grandkids. I live in a town I don't like. Finances are bleak at best. And the holidays are coming. There won't be any for us. Things are too tight to go anywhere; it's even too tight too shop. I've tried finding work, but employers are not looking for a retired professional woman to re-enter the job force and they are skeptical of my willingness to accept a clerical or secretarial position. I understand. I've been in the same position they are, thinking over qualified.

That is really all I have to write. There is nothing else. I feel consumed and overwhelmed by it all and quite frankly I feel like a complete downer, stick-in-the-mud, nasty, negative curmudgeon. A simply unpleasant person.

I'll start writing again when I feel like I have something more to offer. For now, I think I need to take a walk and come home and take a shower. Talk to you in a few....

I wish I knew the words of encouragement to lighten your heart, but all I can say is that you are not alone. I will add you to my prayers, dear lady.
