Personal Update

Life has thrown me a few curveballs lately, just thought I might give a brief update on my status.

First, I have accepted a new position at work, a promotion of sorts. It came to me because of some unfortunate events and I am trying to make the best of it.

Because the position was vacated suddenly, we weren't able to find a replacement for me AND move me totally into this new position. What does that mean? Well, for now it means that I am doing both jobs. We do have a temp worker that is helping me hit the high spots, but I am exhausted.

I am hoping that they choose someone from the ads we've been running, but even then, things will be hectic since I will have to train someone as well as do my job functions. Fun! But, I am willing to do it, happy to do it.

Another bad thing about the whole thing is the timing. I work for a publishing company and we are going to press with 6 books on the tourism side and 5 books on the hotel side. Can you say stressed out?!

So, with that, please know that I don't have time to comment on your gorgeous work everyday. I am looking at my reader in the early morning hours, but don't have much time to look up during the day and by the time I get home, I just want to eat and go to sleep. Honestly, I just want to sleep! LOL

Please don't feel any pressure to comment on my blog since I can't reciprocate much. I will catch up with each of you as I can. Just know I enjoy looking, I just don't have the time to comment.

Thanks for understanding.

I've been there before, Tina. Hang in there and keep your chin up. Will be praying you get a new person trained and in place soon! :)
