Gloom, Despair, and Agony

Push start to set the tone for my somber mood.




After exactly one year at home, I am going back to work. Work. W.O.R.K!

AGGGGGHHH!!

Work. As in cubicle. As in having a boss. As in being confined for 8 HOURS A DAY!

Monday is the Day of Doom.

For me, there will be less time to blog while lounging in fuzzy slippers and engorging on crazy bread. Most of my spare time will be spent with my husband and offspring.

Sadly, my blogging may become even more sporadic than it already has been lately. I will still stalk your blogs because I get such a kick out of my blogging pals. You all are truly the best!

Please say that even when you move on to more frequently written, exciting, normal, and clever blogs, ones that don't talk about cats and cups, you won't forget about me.

Love,

Red

This saddens me. If it makes you feel any better I have agreed to babysit on a daily basis for someone. Kinda the same but not really. I tried .

Jan said...

Is this a self pity post or what. Your in our heart Red. We ain't going no where. Well for you, maybe a cubby hole. Sorry about that :( We will always be around for Red...:)

First--that is my ringtone for when my Mother calls! How funny is that??!! Anyways--you will be MISSED! Is that a little weird since I have never even met you in person? Oh well--I really enjoy your posts and how much fun you and your husband have together and how much you love your family so I guess its okay that you want to be with them. I will so still be stalking you tho--good luck with all the new stuff!

Red, everything will be fine. It will take some adjusting to get through, once you acclamate to your new schedule and how duties in and out of the house will change. Your children are older and if you have been doing everything up until now, they will need to adjust as well. Hold them accountable for their time and chores as well as yourself.
I found being extrememly busy or tight on time made me less slothful and able to accomplish more. Take care of you and yours first. that is what is important. If there is room for others things. It will happen. But, always be sure to make time for yourself. Whether it is shopping, blogging or pamper time.

I'll be thinking about you on Monday...while I'm at work too! No seriously, good luck on the new job.

Don't worry about us...we'll always make time for another cup post!

Good luck and keep us updated!

Michelle said...

WAH! A cubicle? I am so sorry! I will write more about my kitty to even out the blogging universe.

Dolly said...

Good luck out there in world of cubicles...I'll hold down the fort for ya' :) I'm not picking up my briefcase again for quite awhile! This "stay-at-home-thing" adds something to be desired...

Tammy said...

you could never be forgotten!!! I fell sad for you heading back to work when I know that I am headed away from work again. I will be thinking of you!!! Hang in there!!!

McEwens said...

Like we could forget YOU!!! PLease! Good luck on the new job, I am guessing you decided against going back to nursing school? Take time for yourself.

Scrappy Girl said...

How could I forget ya! You are my favorite cat/cup blog out there! I don't blame ya for feeling BLAH about work...Yuck!

kitchenditcher said...

Oh dang. I know how you feel. Working all day IS HARD!! Please don't stop blogging even though it might be sporadic like me. I can't imagine the blogging world without RED!! What are you going to be doing?

Redhoodoos said...

I will be helping physicians get their state licenses for traveling jobs.

Thanks everyone! Working is what I know. Being home was hard for me in some ways. In a way - I'm looking forward to it. =)

Mandi said...

Best of luck - you will love it once you get back into the swing of things. I stayed home for 10 years and was ready to get back to work, it give you a whole other dimension. I cant say that I am terribly organised which helps when you are working, but I get by.

I will look forward to reading all about it!!!

Michelle said...

I can't believe you're going to be working for CH! Hopefully it's better than Staffcare, but I don't think it's going to be as awesome as VSS is, even with all the changes since you left. You'll have to keep me in the loop on how they do things over there.. There won't be any MCF or LAS though, that's for sure! LOSERS!

kitchenditcher said...

Hi Red! I'm back and just wanted to tell you good luck tomorrow! I'll be thinking about you.

While you're working, just think about your paycheck! A definite shopping trip will be in order when you get your first one! And pack some crazy bread in your lunchbox!!

Love, Deb
