Disappointing Start To The Day

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

I got a call from an employment agency yesterday to start a part-time job today. The company is really close to home and I was really excited. I got there this morning only to be told that the agency was supposed to send someone ONLY if the regular girl did not show up. Well, she did - so I don't have a job. I was really embarrassed and disappointed. So, it's back to the computer and the cold calls to find a job.

  I am sorry to hear about that. I know how frustrating it is looking for a new job. My husband had to recently change careers unexpectedly and it was really hard on him. I hope you find a job soon and that you like it.

    How awfully inconsiderate of them. It's just so hard to deal with rejection. Be strong Dear Patty. Have you finished the paint job?
I'll be thinking of you.

    I am so sorry that you had to go through the disappointment. I hope that the agency will put forth extra effort in finding you a new position and be more diligent about following through with complete knowledge next time. I also have faith that a new position is just on the horizon. emoticon

Another Sleepless Night

Monday, February 14, 2011

It's 2 am and I haven't fallen asleep yet. I took a sleeping pill about an hour ago and I'm hoping it will kick in soon. I hate nights like this. My whole day will now be off kilter.

    I know all about insomnia. It's the WORST!!!
Two things help me (sometimes): 1) exercise and 2) getting up instead of lying there fretting. Yes, it's horrible not to sleep, but, for me, it's worse to lie there. In any case, I hope you soon feel better!

My Day Ended Badly

Saturday, February 12, 2011

I started off yesterday with lots of motivation and a positive attitude. Once afternoon hut, it seemed to go downhill. I blame a lot of it because I got up at 3 am and couldn't fall back asleep. But, there were a few other things that brought me down a bit. I got a call from the employment agency about the job interview I went to on Thursday. The company didn't select any of the people it interviewed. This was the job I really wanted and I was definitely a little disappointed. I can get the 13-week part time filing job if I can pass 6 medical questionaire tests. I've got all but one done. I took it for the second time yesterday (only one try per day) to get a lower score than the day before. I'm not sure if it was because I was tired by that point or my ADD meds were wearing off or what. But it was depressing. The others were easy. I didn't finish putting my room back together - I just ran out of steam. I really wanted it to be done yesterday. Today is another day, though. I've already worked on my room a little bit and my daughter is going to help me with the test. Hopefully soon all will be done and well again.

    Dear Patty, I know all about those wake ups at 3 AM, the day is not the same. As for the job, sometimes we want something and we don't even know if it's going to be good for us or not, it might not be the right one for us, who knows.
I had jobs that weren't for me and they only made me waste time having built up all the expectations and then soon after having to quit and renew the search.
Good idea to get a bit of help to go through the questionnaire. I hope you sleep better, it will make you feel good about yourself.
Think about all the people that give up and feel bad, you battle on taking new challenges constantly and that's huge. Very brave.

  Appears to me you got a lot accomplished. One of the things I try to keep in mind for me any way. I seem to run out of day before I run out of projects that need completed. That way I always have something to do the next day. One thing at a time and you can do so much. Hang in there, high five for all you have done.

    I do those early wake ups and our steam only lasts so long so I am not surprised that you wore out with all you were doing. Be kind to yourself. You have accomplished a lot!

I Haven't Accomplished Everything I Wanted to This Week

Friday, February 11, 2011

I'm still working on painting my room: at least I'm down to the trim. Then the fun of putting everything back starts! I'm looking forward to changing things around and seeing the finished results. I just hate that I underestimated the time it would take.

My to-do list that I keep every day still has some things on it from two weeks ago. I get aggravated at myself when I procrastinate on some things. I will have to do better at finishing some of those projects.

I made a graceful entrance at my job interview yesterday and fell in the uneven parking lot on my way to the building. At the time, I just prayed no one saw me and that I didn't have any holes in my pants. But, this morning I noticed a sore to the touch spot on my knee and there's a spot in my back that's knotted. I know just to give it a couple days to see what happens. If my back is still hurting next week, I know to have it checked out. Oh, the advantages of being graceful and having a bad back!

    Sorry to hear about your fall... hope the interview went well.... I hate that in-between-job time.... (probably going to be there again myself this summer!) I know I don't want to come back to this job - it's so far from civilization and the environment is downright hostile, why would I want to come back?

    What colour are you painting the room and did you like the people that interviewed you?
Take it easy for a bit on your knee and back!

    My to-do list grows and changes all the time - I never get it totally finished! Thanks for stopping by to let me know you appreciate my comments. I appreciate what others do for me so it is nice to know others also appreciate what I do. After all, that is what we are here for - right?????????????
