Lying awake worrying is just counter-productive!

Thursday, July 01, 2010

The night before last, I woke up at 2:30 in the morning and worried for about 2 hours about things around my house that have broken recently and are going to have to be fixed. As a result, yesterday I felt overwhelmed all day. Not getting enough good sleep doesn't help, it just makes coping more difficult.

Have been working through the financial responsibilities at work

Friday, June 11, 2010

Not difficult, just detail work processing incoming financial items, having to learn their system. Wasted almost 2 hours trying to get the fax machine back on line.


Long Day

Tired tonight. Things are going well, but lots to learn and lots to do.

New job responsibilities tomorrow

Monday, May 31, 2010

Tomorrow is June 1st. Summer is beginning, and I will start different job responsibilities at the Red Cross, where I am assigned by the Experience Works training program I work for. I'll have to be there by 10 am (instead of 1 pm now) in order to open the mail and collect any donations. Then I'll be doing the financial recording and preparing the receipts to be sent to the Lansing office where they are keeping our books.

On Friday evening I moved into my new office that was formerly occupied by the "Office Manager." I wasn't offered that position, just asked whether I would be willling to assume some of her responsibilities. We'll see how it goes; it shouldn't be very difficult, and will simply require accuracy - not a problem for me, but an opportunity to refresh my skills!

Temp is too warm here today

Sunday, May 30, 2010


I live in Michigan because I do not like hot weather. However it's still only May, and the temps here have been in the upper 80s for several days. I took my window air conditioner out last fall because it wasn't very well sealed in, but also because I'd only needed to use it on about 5 or 6 days all summer! I was hoping not to need to put it back in the window this year; but the humidity, coupled with the higher-than-normal temps have made me think maybe I'd better install it again soon.

    I love hot why I live in Fl, but I'd suggest you put your air back in, you body is accustomed to cooler temps , so your going to be hot , where 80 to me is pretty comfortable emoticon Have a great day emoticon

  It has been unusually hot this Spring here in Delaware too. Think we are in for a really hot summer. I plan to stay well hydrated!

    I know what you mean. Doesn't seem to be a place in the world where it has not been hotter than usual....stinks! I feel better when the weather is cooler to downright cold. But at least I have more cooler-cold months than I do the hot ones...I am sure you do in MI, as well. We'll get through these months. Keep on Sparking! :)
