A little stress to go, please

A little bit of stress lately, not related directly to me but involving the Spouse & his former employer. Kinda sidelined us for a while. Potentially serious- not involving any medical mishaps or malpractice, but directly related to the job. Gonna have to consult an employment law specialist. >:{ Not pleasant at all & definitely going to get much, much more stressful before it gets better.

As a result- no reading been done. Or at least- nothing that has stuck in my mind, anyway. An interesting YA fantasy/alternate reality by Catherine Fisher. I'm about 1/2 way done with. It has been slow going so far, but I can't be sure the problems aren't due to paragraph #1. See above. It's a library book, so I can hang on to it & renew it if I have to. Also reading American Gods by Neil Gaiman. Wonderful stuff so far. If I've not waited too long I've a copy of Holly Black's new novel Ironside waiting at my local library.

I hope anyone else who still stops by has had a better week than we have. Wish for better news this week!

Oh Amanda. I'm SO sorry. I can't imagine the stress you guys must be under. I'll keep up positive thoughts and prayers for you and hubby.

As for the reading fog, I'm guessing you're right about the cause.

Hang in there!

Jenster- It has been a very intense week, needless to say. Thanks for the positive thoughts & prayers- those always help!

Hey, when your husband is going through a bad time, so are you! And with me, I tend to over stress which I think keeps Bob sane ;) I hope you get some good news very soon - I hate the waiting periods that seem to follow anything business related.

I've often wondered about Neil Gaiman because I haven't heard a bad thing about him - then I remember the current size of my TBR pile.

Hang in there Amanda. I went through that stress last year with the hubby. I can sympathize with how you feel.

CindyS- You're right. It is stressful for me too. I hate confrontations unless I'm really pushed to the wall, but the Spouse deserves my full support no matter how chicken I may be. I'm with you on the TBR though.

AW- Thanks for reminding me I'm not alone. :) That thought helps alot!
