I’m having a hard time blogging these days, for a myriad of reasons. I even have considered closing the blog, since I’m not being as faithful as I was before. But I know I'd miss y'all!!
My industry, oil and gas, is taking a hard, hard hit these days, as are lots of industries. All of my friends and some of my coworkers have been laid off. The lucky ones have taken reductions in pay. It’s depressing, and as some of you know, my job is finding people jobs! Argggggh! It's hard to do when everyone has basically stopped drilling/completing wells.
I keep a smile on my face, and keep beating the streets (salesman talk!) to try to find opportunities for people. When I get home, I’m wiped out, and don’t want to go anywhere or visit with anyone.
Workwise, I’m trying to deal with things I can affect. Industry meetings; introductions; taking care of business to the best of my ability. Homewise, same thing. My husband, my family, my wonder dogs. I really have lots to be thankful for, and I am thankful.
Another thing I’ve taken on is a diet, starting today. Wish me well. It’s hard to diet when 1/2 of your job is taking people out for meals! But I’m determined.
I’ll be in a wedding this weekend in the DFW area. From all accounts, it’s going to be a beautiful one. The daughter of my friend, Suzan, is getting married. And it’s going to be a big shindig. And I have to speak at the wedding. I know what I want to say, and I’m trying to put it together in a clear, concise way, keeping it short and sweet. I plan on fine-tuning it tomorrow. If I get it down, I’ll share it with you after the wedding. I believe that what I want to say has been the very foundation for ThatManILove’s and my marriage...though I wasn’t able to identify it until some years ago. It’s such a God deal.
Anyway, if you wonder why I’ve not been trekking around your blogs as much, now you know I’ve been working myself to exhaustion.
And you know, girls just gotta have fun!!
