Wow two weeks...

It's been a couple of weeks since I last posted.  I guess I am struggling for words at the moment.  You see  I have enough going on at the moment, and it's difficult to talk about it.

Whilst a lot of you have in the past asked *the* question and I have always said no I'm not.  Well that's changed.  I am.  Probably.  Always add the get out clause.  But I don't want any woohoo's or any bad lucks.  It is.  There is no elation and there is no depression.  What there is though is relief that I have finally made the decision.  Everyone who knows about me had already guessed - I was the one who came to the conclusion last.

So that is why I have been quiet (in between writing mindless drivel ;p).  I didn't want the fuss, but almost everything I've wanted to say either gives the game away or at least makes for questions.  So I have not said anything.  Well I've said it now.

Next week my boss and the HR team lead meet Stacy after work.  They have known about Stacy for a while, and known about the decision for a while as well.  It's about time they meet her.

Anyway, that's enough from me for today.  I'm going to stop before my make up drips onto the backlit keyboard.  Time to watch the fireworks laid on by mother nature.

  2. God is indeed great. Trust in Him and allow Him to guide you.

    I will be praying for all to go smoothly next week. Let me know if you need me to pray about something specific.

    This is all truly wonderful.

    Many Blessings, Prayers, and Hugs.

  4. As Melissa says - if its the decision to make you happy, then it's the right decision.

    Good luck as you move forward

  5. It gets rid of the noisy 'what if?'s, anyway. Good luck.

  8. Thanks all. I think that's about the best comments I could have got.

    Oddly enough publishing this post was quite difficult. More difficult than telling some people.

    Thanks again,
    Stace

  9. It's always so difficult for me to comment on posts like this one, Stace. I've seen so many like this.

    I'll be honest, and I hate to say this. My first thought is always of myself and not of the author of the post. The thoughts are always the same....bitter, wasted my life away, anger, jealously, etc.

    Then, after I have pissed myself off by being so self-centered, I realize that I'm happy for you. I'm happy that you have made a decision and have a plan to follow through. I'm happy that you will finally be able to live the life you were born to live.

    And, I'm happy that someone who I consider to be a really good, and true, on-line friend...is on her way.

  10. Calie, I think that it totally understandable. And is another reason why it's difficult to write...

    From what you have said about your life I do not think that it could possibly be wasted!

    Thanks for the comment, it means a lot,

  11. You mentioned that the post was hard to write but I hope the reactions of others doesn't stop you posting along similar lines. The thoughts, words and comments of others helps shape our own responses to our own challenges.

  12. So far I think that I have only had a couple of bad reactions a post that I have written. Not pleasant, but it could have been much worse.

    However, it's more posts that I have seen elsewhere - and of course comments that I have seen elsewhere that really made it hard to post.

    I really didn't want lots of congratulations or commiserations, but I also didn't want any 'what the hell do you think that you are doing, you are a fool' comments. To be honest the only reason I posted it was that it was getting too difficult to write without saying it.

  13. Stace, I'm very happy for you, knowing what your course is to be. I do envy you that clarity.
