Unkilled Hamburger?

(Image from a forwarded email.)

I'm sure some of you are wondering why I haven't been as active on my blog or commenting on yours as I have been in the past. Well, some big, BIG!!! changes have happened and I'm in the adjusting period. I have a lot on my plate and have been stressed to the max.

First, my relationship status has changed and the face of "The Pretend Chef" will be getting a new look in the future when I get the time. I'm thinking of doing a complete overhaul with new name as well.

Second, my living situation has changed. I have until the end of the month to move out of my current apartment and into a new one. What a slow process this is when there is nothing but oversized furniture and lots of things to sort through.

Third, this is the one I am struggling the most with... WORK! I had to get a job. I am no longer a stay at home mama. I never took a day for granted but I never thought it would be this hard going from my dream job to entering the work force again. I work full time now for a freight forwarding company and by day's end I don't have time or energy for anything else. I didn't realize how I put all of my happiness into the stay at home bit until I no longer was doing it. I want to be happy again and hopefully that will happen soon.

I've lost my passion for blogging and cooking. It makes me really sad. I'm hoping once the dust settles and I am in a routine that I'll be able to better manage time for my hobbies and get back around to checking out all of the yummies from your kitchens.

Hey Rochelle. You sound so sad. I don't really understand your situation but whatever it is, things will work out eventually and you will become a stronger person from it, believe me, I've been thru some difficult times. You may not feel it right now, but hang in there and you'll soon be telling the same to some sad soul out there who might need to hear it. Here's a great big HUG. Hope it helps some.

I am very sorry that you are having to struggle with what life has brought your way. Just know that we, your readers, will be here when you return.
If you just need to vent please do so whatever you do don't hold it in.
I know there is a theory that if it doesn't kill you it will make you stronger. It sounds cliche to say it but it is true.
Sending warm wishes and hugs your way :)

You need time and take it.There is no quick solutions no good recomendations here you are realy on your own.Everybody needs or experriences things differently in hard times.
Sometimes writing about it (writing it off your chest) can help.As I said take time but I do hope you will come back to blogging comunity and although I am not deeply religious I do beleive taht God never puts the weight on your shoulders that you are not able to carry...Wish you all the best:)
