Another Busy Day

Thursday, February 10, 2011

I've got another job interview today. Of the three I have this week, this is the one I really want. I hope I'm prepared enough and give a good impression! (I still think interviewing is one of my weaker skills.) I will spend a little more time preparing before I have to leave.

My bedroom painting is slower than expected. I realized last night that I will have to put a third coat of paint on as the old color was so dark and ugly. It is a project that I just didn't expect to take so long. But, at least it gives me something to do as opposed to waiting and worrying about my job interviews.

    Good Luck Patty, and remember it's only an interview.
The more you do the more practise you get until you lose the nerves. Be yourself, so they can make up thier mind if they want you, and not try to change you into a different person and expect things you cannot do. Better to be honest and also if you are yourself, it'll be easier to work with them without being stretched to limit or trying to be different later on.

Overplanned Day

Wednesday, February 09, 2011

I believe I have over-planned my day today. I have my usual to-do list. I have a 2:30 job interview. And I want to paint my bedroom. (I'm SO tired of the ugly dark blue that my daughter's soon-to-be ex-husband painted it!) I don't think I will get everything accomplished, but I'm anxious to see how much I really can do in one day without collapsing.

    You know what I did one time was I put some border up over a room that just needed some extra Umph... cheap and really worked. It was taupe colored front room and with a border with a green vine and a little red berry in it, it was just the crownign touch... I bought some border at a dollar store even!
How'd your interview go? When will you know? Good luck.

Fingers crossed for your interview!

Trying to Stay Busy

Tuesday, February 08, 2011

I've got a couple meetings today to keep me somewhat busy. But I am running out of stuff to do around the house; there's only so much that I can catch up on. I don't have the money to go out and do a lot of stuff.
So....this means that I'm going to have to do some creative thinking and come up with things to do to keep me active and motivated. This may take a few days, but I am determined to do this.

    Have you thought about volunteer work a couple of times a week? It's good for the spirit and you get to meet others and who knows what other options might bring.
It also takes your mind off yourself and your problems.

    You have come such a long way in your life over the last few months. This is just another bend in the road and you will conquer it with your grace and determination.

First Day of Planned Week

Monday, February 07, 2011

It's the first day of my week that I planned out last night. I've got a couple things crossed off my to-do list. It's already 9 am and I'm guessing I need to get dressed and start working a little harder on the list. I'm determined to cross everything off. I still want to have time to add things if necessary and have time to do something for me. I really want this to give me some motivation and some structure in my life.

Planning My Week

Sunday, February 06, 2011

I have a strong urge to spend a few minutes today and plan out my week well. No clue why - but I'm anxious to do it and then to evaluate how it works at the end of the week.

    And plan in some extra exercise now that you have the extra time, it's a good cheap way to spend some time too.. I have volunteered at a couple of soup kitchens over the years, it always made me feel more appreciative of what I had when I saw how rough some people had it. Then you can also share your smile and kind words with them.

    Go with your feeling. You can always change anything if you need to. I always think I get those feeling for a reason. emoticon
