What can I say, so busy, time has been flying. Ben and I continue to work at St. Elizabeth's. Right now, the hospital is in discussion with Trinity (who owns St. Al's in Boise) to possibly take over a few hospitals of CHI. Oh, the stress these kind of things cause. Ben works for CHI, the national company, and I work for the Hospital. They say our jobs are safe, but we have not idea about Ben's. He works for the National CHI company, which means, if Trinity takes over, will CHI move Ben to another one of their hospitals. Will Trinity make Ben apply for them, or will Ben be contracted to work for them? It's a huge question, just sitting in the air, cause some much unwanted anxiety.
Ben and I are still working hard at losing weight. We are re-dedicating ourselves to Weight Watchers, and hope to finish our weight loss goal. I am half way there, and Ben has about 20 more pounds to lose. Losing weight is not easy, takes a lot of time, and causes a lot of questioning. It also has some good things too:
I feel sooooo much better, being 36 pounds lighter.
I have more energy for my kids.
We are healthier as a family, and our kids are positively impacted by that.
I have been really trying hard to be thankful for my family, for the things, and blessings in my life. I have been really grumpy lately, stressing out about all the little things that I have no control over, which doesn't make any sense. I know that I am a blessed person, I just need to think about that when I get down.
Can you hardly believe that Christmas is just 6 paychecks away?
