Sleep deprivation sucks.

Job hunting sucks.

Holidays can be stressful.

Family can be stressful.

Remember you've got a lot going on at once, eventually you'll see the end of the tunnel and you're pretty strong for getting through it without pulling your hair out!

Sending lots of kitty cuddles and human hugs your way. [smiley=hug.gif]

Fingers crossed you get good news soon!

Send me the baby, I'll hold him a minute.

But in all seriousness, that's a lot on your plate!  I'm sorry it has you feeling down.  But you'll get something amazing really soon, and once you get over the sleep training hump it'll be smooth sailing sleepwise.

I forget to check this section of the forum! Sorry to hear you are feeling down, KFdancer but, as others have said, you have a lot on your plate and I am sure you would love a whole night's sleep!

You are so helpful to all of us and we really appreciate your encouragement and assistance in   'getting it right'.   

Hope you feel better soon and can enjoy Christmas with your family. Sending love and hugs!

You're doing all you can do. There are a lot of things that are out of our control, sadly, so all you can do is decide how to respond to the situation. My grandmother would have said "one step at a time," and it looks like that's all you can do now. Keep doing what you are doing and wait for the universe to move the next chess piece. 

Definitely be sure you are eating well, and sleep whenever you can. Sleep is very healing.

Fingers are crossed for ya that things smooth out soon!

At the weekend my mom told me that I'm really negative about things lately.  I get that.  It was a fair comment.  But no sleep and no job prospects (I'm very career driven) is really getting me down. 

I need a pick me up!

It's okay, sometimes I think you're allowed to be a bit negative! You're more than welcome to be as negative as you want/need to be on here :) In honesty, I think it's just a difficult time of year for hiring because so many people use up all their leave that the decision-makers don't even bother with hiring during this time. That and some companies don't have their budgets for new employees yet.

I just need a vent.

Job hunting sucks.  I've had some momentum in recent weeks but everything seems to have ground to a halt.  Supposed to have another round of interviews for Company B this week but still no date/time.  Told today that it'll be next week sometime but that recruiting will go into the new year (at least they are setting realistic expectations).  Company A still hasn't let me know if I'm onto the next round or not.  I'm far enough in that I expect to hear even if it's a no.

The baby does NOT sleep.  We started sleep training last night in the hopes that this will improve things.  Last night was tough - but at least he didn't wake the three year old.

At the weekend my mom told me that I'm really negative about things lately.  I get that.  It was a fair comment.  But no sleep and no job prospects (I'm very career driven) is really getting me down.

I can only imagine the anxiety of both young ones and job hunting! You are not being negative! Sending positive wishes.x

Hello Kfdancer, Season greeting s ... and yes i am reborn, back in Toronto but will be making my way back to the UK Jan 18 or the 25... i straightened some stuff and also realized after i left things can only get better with communication and less stress.  so we both have decided it will work just need to refine our selves ..i missed the UK missed the out doors and walks  but most of all i aim to get a job ..that was my stress  over there, being over qualified getting interviews.. i am have been back in Toronto and each time i found a job with a week back here. go figure so i know am not over qualified.. for anything.
 Cheer up  be safe and will pay for you... be strong.
