My one fan (yay! I have a follower!) posted a comment that in my last post, I merely touched on all of the transitions I'm experiencing.
So, how do I feel about that? How am I dealing with them?
Well, truth be told, I've always had a hard time shifting gears, both personally and professionally. Could it be because I'm such a perfectionist that once I've mastered a job, instead of transferring to a new position or department, I need a complete change of venue? Or is it because, as an overachiever, I have a hard time going from the expert at something to the neophyte while working with the same people?
The number of transitions happening simultaneously is taking a toll, and mostly because I have little control over them. J is feeling his oats a little now that he's finished kindergarten. T is testing limits and has taken to hitting S. S will be mobile this summer. I need to be better about eliminating problem foods from my diet. Hubster is being called by recruiters. The only transition that is completely within my control is my diet. I can't control J's behavior, force T not to hit S, nor can I confine S's movement. Hub's job situation is in his hands.
Oh, and for the first time in six years, I am not pregnant, breastfeeding, or trying to get pregnant.
Perhaps this is why I've been wistful for my past, and a little too interested in the Twilight saga...
