Check-up With Doctor

Sunday, January 30, 2011

I went to the doctor the other day for my semi-annual thyroid check-up. It's a little high this time, so my daily dosage has been lowered. Of course, the first thing done was the weigh-in : 7 pounds down since my last visit! It took me a couple days to realize this, but I WASN'T worried about the weigh-in. I am no longer so obsessed with the scale. I can't remember the last time I weighed in at home as opposed to weighing myself every day like I did at first. emoticon

    I'm so glad you have taken control over that demon scale, and it no longer controls you... it still has the power to hurt me, when I don't lose, but I am no longer so obsessed that I weight every day either.... small success!!

Expanding My Volunteer Experiences

Saturday, January 29, 2011

I went to church today to attend a couple "mini" meetings on how to get involved in the church more. I'm confident it will make me feel better physically and emotionally to be more involved. And I know there's a great side effect: getting to know great people even better.

    Not to mention spiritually..... I live almost 2 hr drive to a church so I don't get there much any more and it used to be a very big part of my life.

What kind of work are you looking for?

Thanks for commenting on my blog and the applause... nice to have someone appreciate me...

Take care of yourself, looking for work is hard and often depressing.... I don't even want to think how many times in my life i have had to look for work.... guess that's why people can't understand why I stay where I am despite the very negative atmosphere I am in.

My To-Do List Keeps Growing

Friday, January 28, 2011

I've been off work since Sunday night. I have a list of to-do projects written down in my notebook. It seems like for every one that I cross off, there are three more that get written down. Either I'm taking advantage of having the time off and finding more stuff that I need to get done, or the list is reproducing on me. At least I have the time to accomplish some of the things. I just hope I can get them done and get a job quickly.

    Yes to do lists always tend to do that in my case, but this is the good side of having free time.
Fingers crossed Patty.

    One thing at a time, like I tell myself.

    Do overwork yourself! Those to do lists are never done! I have the same trouble with it growing!

Trying to Keep My Spirits Up

Thursday, January 27, 2011

I know it's only the first week of unemployment, but I find I'm trying to work hard at keeping my spirits up. I am trying to stay busy and I'm following every lead that someone gives me. I am realistic in knowing that it takes time to find a job; just wishing the time is short. Good thing I have practice in knowing how to save money and look for bargains when it comes to shopping. And I've somewhat learned how to barter - I just need to get better at that. Any suggestions on how to do that?

    I'm hopeless at bartering I'm afraid!

    I don't know how to barter, but I bet there is lots of advice on-line, probably even a group devoted to that near where you live. Keep trying! You will get there!!!! Just keep hanging on! You CAN do it!

Sagging Spirits

Wednesday, January 26, 2011

Despite my good report at the doctor's yesterday (I lost 2 more pounds!), I feel myself getting a little discouraged. I know I've been seriously looking for a job for only two weeks now, but I haven't gotten one interview out of all the applications I put in. I know I should be patient, especially in this economy. I'm finding it a little hard right now.
