Current state of affairs

July 13th, 2008 (06:44 am)

Job: They laid off 12 more people two weeks ago. We're now down to 25. On the following Monday, they called what's left of us in and told us that we were going to be laid off sometime between now and November 30. I'm going to stay till they lay me off, because the severance package is good.

Weight: I've discovered that I'm a stress eater. My weight loss has slowed down. (Hm... do you think that entire chocolate cheesecake, the Hershey's Sundae Pie(s) from Burger King, all those frosted oatmeal cookies, the bag of tortilla chips, oh and the ice cream had anything to do with it?) However, I *am* still losing weight. I've now lost the equivalent of a little over 9 hard back copies of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows" and I weigh less now than I have in 4 years.

Divorce: I've filed for divorce. I tried downloading the forms off the California website and doing myself (since we don't have any property and agree on how we're handling the custody issue). I was too intimated by the forms, so I went to Legal Action Workshop. $850 for the divorce. $320 for court filing fees. I downloaded a $50 off coupon from the LAW website, so that brings the divorce down to $800. $1,120 all together. Ulp.

brighter days are coming

Hang in there sweetie.

Losing weight is very difficult when you have stressers that trigger emotional eating. Between the job and divorce, you certainly have your share.
