. Believe it or not, my father used to knit to relax.


That's a great Idea!
Tom is now taking orders for GTTalk Stocking Caps.... :D

(Not making fun of Dad, we all beat stress differently... But I'm having trouble seeing Tom in a rocker doing it)

Rocker  yes , knitting not yet, maybe just reading a tractor or hot rod magazine.  I just picked up my new glasses today, so I can get back to reading a book or magazine article. My vision took a major adjustment so I was  not able to focus on print lately. This will definitely help with stress. 

I also asked  to take next week off and they said I could . :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana: They gave me a layoff slip ( very common in our trade ) as we don't get any vacation or personal time. I'll take 65% pay over nothing! Time off will help out quite a bit. I plan to goof off for a couple days, then get some stuff done that I've been neglecting. Nothing too ambitious, just puttering. Just what I need right now.

Sound like a good plan to me. :thumbs:  A little time away will do wonders for ya.

Great news. I had my follow up at the Dr's today, blood pressure is back to normal. 110/70 :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana:  A week off, back to a healthy diet, and the decision to remove the main cause of the stress, all helped.

The insane deadline has passed, and with an adjustment to how I take work less personally, it helped. I had another stressful day today, where I felt my ear throbbing, but I diffused it quickly by remembering this weekend is a big antique tractor event I'm taking my son to.

Well , The day has finally come. I finished the last job yesterday. It seemed like this job took forever. But yesterday was my last day as a foreman. :dancingbanana:  :dancingbanana:   Next week I go back into the work pool. It's taken a while to get here, but I feel really good about the changes coming.   I've already lost a few pounds , feel more energetic, and just feel better in general.

Thanks,Tom

Hoping the stress reduction and load lightening has the desired affects.
Good for you, now to train them to stop calling you Boss and get back to complaining about the new one

Being a foreman on a job is rewarding, grows you as a person, but can be very frustrating!
