I've been in a funk ever since Thursday when I got the call saying that the job wasn't working out and to not go in. I've been trying to stay busy, I've been applying to jobs, spending time running errands, doing things for myself like getting my hair cut - anything to try to keep my mind off the fact that they didn't think I could keep up with the fast pace. It's only worked a little. I imagine my mood will improve a little each day, but I'm not sure how to get my confidence back up. I went into the job with the attitude that I was going to give it my all and make it work. I also knew that it was a lot of work with odd hours and little pay ~ this doesn't make it any easier. I'll keep trying. Something eventually will have to work.

I so know how you feel. I'm so sorry Patty. I reiterate that it's just a job, and it wasn't a personal rejection... (now if only I could believe that when it happens to me too!)

    Perseverance always pays off in live! I am sure you will find a new job.
It is not nice to hear that an employer does not want you anymore, but it is just a job. He did not reject you as a person! You are a very good and dedicated person as far as I can tell and am sure you will find a better job that suits you better!

I know that I felt that I still had a lot to learn on the job that I just started last week. I know that it is a fast paced, high stress office with weird hours and little pay. I just didn't expect the phone call that I just got from the employment agency. I was told that my assignment has ended. The company told them that they didn't feel that I would be able to keep up with the fast pace. How could they tell when I only worked 7 days?

So, now I'm back to looking for work. Not a good time to be doing this, as my car is still in need of $600 worth of repairs. Needless to say, although I suspected the job wasn't right for me, I'm still bumming. All they talked about last week was giving me a chance to learn everything. I definitely have a complex now.

    Oh Patty,
I don''t know what to say. When will this all end? I talked with a friend of mine last nite from many years ago and she was telling me a story so similar to yours. I even told her about you.

I have an interview tomorrow at a day care. Even she asked me why I applied at a day care if I am a teacher... maybe cuz I want food on the table and a roof over my head.. it certainly does get frustrating....
Sorry, emoticon emoticon emoticon

Aggravating Day

Wednesday, March 21, 2012

My computer was acting up this morning and I was told I needed a new wireless router. I stopped on the way to work and got one. When I got home and my computer guy got there, the computer was find. So, now I get to return the new one tomorrow.

I'm still trying to schedule all the work that I need done on my car - another nightmare and scheduling conflict. This week is just not my week.

    Nor my week and next week will also be mixed up till I get down to my mother's and see how she's doing and what we're going to do. It's been many, many years since I spent time with my mother and now with my dad gone, it will be a big adjustment...u

How'd you make out with your car? emoticon

Can't Wait to Get Into a Routine

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

I started my second week of my new job yesterday and had an early start time. The day was a little stressful at times as I was learning new things. I definitely carried the stress for the rest of the day, despite my walk after work. I am definitely looking forward to becoming more comfortable with what I am doing and to falling into some sort of routine. I hope this will happen soon. I at least know enough to call it an evening at a certain time in order to get a good night's sleep.

    WEll, that's more than I know somedays.. I can't or don't make myself go to bed when I should and sit here often when I can barely keep my eyes open. There is another teaching job up that I am applying for. This time I have decided I am going to be brutally honest about what happened at the last 2 jobs... I have found that about aboriginal people that they are straight to the point and tell yout the truth, so maybe that is what I should do too, Going the other way , trying to be professional and letting go of what went by.hasn't worked either..,so I'll run it by someone else and see what they think - what do I have to lose at this phase anyway...

Hope you get a routine that falls into place soon, lessens the stress and helps you got into the swing of things...

I spent four hours at the car repair shop this morning waiting around while they tried to determine and fix why my car was making a noise when I put on the brakes. They couldn't get it fixed. I have to bring it back Tuesday and figure out a way to get to and from work. It's a good thing I brought an afghan I'm working on otherwise I really would have gone stir crazy.

To make matters worse, there's things I needed to be doing around the house and it's a gorgeous day outside. So, I've decided that I'm going to take a nice long walk outside first to enjoy the weather and settle my restlessness and aggravated mind. Then, I will come home and start on my inside projects.

    I've been doing the "can't fix it, bring it back" routine too. Hate it. A good walk in the sunshine can bring lots of relief. Too bad it's raining here, but it matches my mood today.

Wishing you sunshine. emoticon

    Don;t you just hate that! /the worst is having to go back again. I hope they aren't charging by the hour! Glad you had your afghan with you..What pattern and colors are you making? Did I tell you about the time I took a sweater I was knitting to a teacher's conference... finsihed the whole thing while I was there and only had another teacher come over to say to me, "I wish I'd thought to do that". My principal had told me to tell anyone that took offence to it to tell them I was ADHD and I needed to do it to focus....

That's what my sis and I did when she took her car in for an oil change appt. when I was in Halifax, we went out and walked around til it was ready... Releases lots of feel-good endorphins and burns calories... emoticon
