Slow down please....

Wow - I started this blog with the good intention of keeping up with it. Well, as we all see that hasn't happened. Hahaha! Life is just moving too fast. Since I last posted I've been on a business trip to Chicago, our company has been bought out by another (lots of new work...yay), my hubby got a new job and my kids continue to keep growing on me. My daughter is going into pre-k in a couple weeks and my son will be there next did that happen? They were just little people and now they are on the verge of school. Time goes waaaaay too fast. My daughter is getting a bit sassy now too - picking up things at daycare. Luckily not as hostile as elementary school, but she did tell me the other day "Mommy, you're getting on my nerves"...she's 4! I had to bite my lip not to laugh. My son (who is 3) has a favorite saying that never fails to make me laugh. Anytime something is not to his liking he quotes "That's not supposed to happen" - too darned cute! Work has been absolutely nuts - gone are the days of taking a break...with an integration to the new company going on, there is no such thing as a break. Between work and home, I don't even know what one is anymore. Sigh! Oh to take a vacation...a real one. I could take the island life about now. Anyone willing to sell me a ticket? One way... ;) Okay...enough daydreaming - back to reality. Work calls.

Life is good, but oh so crazy!

Okay, I've been working in the HR field for going on 6 years. The first 4 years were wonderful, with a busy season and a slow season. Starting in the fall of 2006 everything changed. It went from being crazy, to continuously crazy, and now we're all wondering if there is an end in sight. After interviewing applicants left and right, it still seems we only get about 2 out of every 10 that come in the door. Why? Oh...can we say that it's not cool to be on probation for armed robbery! Seriously people! These are the people that walk in wanting a job. Now I must say, it is a manufacturing plant, but still...are there really that many bad people out there? Apparently so! me.

Sorry...didn't mean to start out my blog complaining, but I'm currently at work and completely stressed out. LOL! Today started out badly with me leaving the house with one screaming child. My youngest did NOT want to get out of bed, so he was difficult from moment one. Have you ever seen the movie Stepmom? I swear, most morning I feel like Julia Roberts in the opening scene trying to dress the boy...and these are my own kids!!! After dropping my kids off at daycare, I then proceed to work, only to get caught in traffic due to an accident, so what normally takes 20 minutes took an hour and half today. I called work and decided it was a good day to stop and pick up Burger King for the office...what's an extra 5 minutes in line when you're already over an hour late?

Once at work it's been non-stop...I shouldn't even be on here right now, but I do believe it would be for the company's benefit to let me come and vent for a few minutes or you may be reading about me on the evening news flash. Crazed working mom goes postal after bad day...details at 11:00!
