  • There have been some major upheavals at 5 Elsie Street aka Wood End.   They have not been publicized but they have been seriously affecting my mood and my sense of security.   Things are finally calming down and I feel like I'm regaining my footing, but it has been very stressful.

  • This highlights the other thing that I have not talked about:  how much it took to become this vulnerable again.   I was getting into a very dark place living alone and making a choice to look for multi-adult living situations came out of realizing that it was not sustainable for me.

  • Had you asked me four years ago though, I would not have chosen to become the newbie in an existing family structure.   It took time to realize that finding/creating a new family was needed.

  • All that aside, I continue to be extremely grateful to Roo and her adults.  Despite all the stress, this has been a mental step up and I am in a better spot emotionally and mentally than I was a year ago.

  • Roo seems to be accepting me as one of her adults and that is both extremely satisfying and OMG ADORABLE at times.

  • Both my Manager and my Team Lead have accepted other positions within the company.

  • The new Team Lead took over on March 31 and he seems to be doing pretty well.  He's a bit more laid back than the previous and that is a good thing.

  • I got taken to task for my "absences" and told that I should just take a full day off for appointments that are going to take more than 1.5 hours.

  • This is pretty problematic given the last medical update and the fact that I'm on pretty low PTO due to the illness at the beginning of the year.

  • We still don't have a replacement for my manager so she has been working 2 jobs effectively since the beginning of March.

  • I am finally in the new position that I was supposed to transition to last fall.

  • I am enjoying it but it has been a major adjustment to how I work--with deadlines in terms of days rather than weeks or months.

  • And BTW it's April.  Aries birthday was on the 14th, my father on the 12th and mine on the 23rd.   Lots of landmines.

  • Topped off with your basic spring cold with an extra side of cough.  *rolls eyes*  Oh well.
