Good News/Bad News Day

Friday, January 07, 2011

I did pick up my new care today. I got to test it out in the snow and it seems to handle great in the yucky stuff. But, just before I left to get my car, my supervisor came into my office. She told me that there's not enough work to keep all the temps busy (which I knew!). Then she told me that unless I get really busy the next week, it will be my last week. I knew it was coming. But I still feel like she's letting me go first because I was not one to bow down to the supervisors. I need to start looking harder for another job and I need to re-learn how to brown-nose the supervisors.

    Great that you have a new car! --As far as brown-nosing, as a supervisor, I would just suggest having a great attitude.... brown-nosing is boring and needless, but great attitudes are just wonderful to work with!!

You can do this! You can achieve your goals and move forward!!

    Congrats on the new car. I know you knew it was coming - but it's still exciting when it becomes real! I'm glad it handles well in the snow!
As far as the job, you also saw this one coming. Keep your attitude positive and upbeat. They are the ones that are losing out on a hard-working employee.

    I have been there, dear SP friend, and I am sorry about all the stress. I don't know what "pick up my new care" means or where you live but I know that the economy is tough right now here in the US. I live in Florida. Good luck finding a job and I hope you can use your health goals here in SP to boost you up. Keep on truckin'! emoticon

The Wear and Tear of the Holidays

Thursday, January 06, 2011

I think the wear and tear of the holidays combined with my DH's wonderful worryful stunt has left my resistance a little low. My nose has been running off and on since I was on my way home from work yesterday. It's now definitely a little raw. A short trip to the pharmacy, a quick dinner and a bit of rest will hopefully ward off whatever this may be. I don't want it worse for the weekend, especially one in which I will have a new car to show off.

Excitement & Stress Wore Me Down

Thursday, January 06, 2011

The excitement and stress of the holidays, my DH, and my impending new car has started to wear me down. Since about 5 pm last night, my nose has been running off and on. It is definitely to the sore stage. I will definitely be making a pharmacy stop on my way home from work to find something to help ward this off. Then, after dinner, I will put on my pj's and settle down on the couch. I don't want to be any sicker for the weekend. I'm getting my new car tomorrow and want to show it off!

The Package

Wednesday, January 05, 2011

I went to my mom's to get the box my husband sent there instead of to me. It contained junk mail, a baseball hat and 2 self-help books that he said he read and were my Christmas and anniversary presents. ??????????????????? And he wonders why I couldn't continue living with him.

    Sounds like a very juvenille thing to do and he needs to grow up, move on with his life, and let you do the same.

The Package

Wednesday, January 05, 2011

I went to my mother's to get my package from my DH. In it was some junk mail, a baseball cap, a soda or beer can container for the summer, and two books that he claimed were for Christmas and our anniversary. They were both books he said he had read: "Depression for Dummies" and a book on what to do if you're in an abusive relationship. ???????? I'm not depressed anymore and I am not in an abusive relationshop: that's why I left him. I don't think I'll ever understand completely his way of thinking.

    Stress can definitely make you sick, and you certainly have some stress in your life right now. Take care of yourself.
