Tired Day

Monday, February 28, 2011

I should know better than to stay up past my "good" bedtime watching shows that I know will last too long. It was sooo difficult to stay alert and motivated this morning at work. (It doesn't help that my work is very tedious!) But, this afternoon I got a little bit of a second wind, thank goodness. I am determined to get to bed at my normal time tonight. I've got a busy morning planned. And I did get asked to come into work tomorrow afternoon for four hours. Of course, I can't turn it down.

I did get a call from another employment agency today. They want me to come in on Thursday to talk about a possible office manager position. It's not close to home. like this job. But, it would be $3-$4 more an hour and I would have more than one thing to do every day. I know - I'm not getting my hopes up. But I'm going to have to try for it anyway. Each interview I go on is a learning experience, and I really don't know until I try.

    You should be very proud that they keep calling. As Claudia says the gas may eat up the profit but if you will be happier "go for it". emoticon

    Yes every time you go to an interview you get calmer and more confident. I got to a point in which I started being relaxed because I thought even if I want a job it might not be a good for me, I don't know so I gave it over to a higher power to make the decision. If it's meant to be it will flow and the same applies to every big decision in our lives. If it pays more but it's far the money might go into petrol. Who knows.
Have a better day tomorrow.

Re-Charge Day

Sunday, February 27, 2011

I feel like today is a re-charge my battery day. I want to have a fresh, prepared start to the week. So, after I go grab something to eat with a friend, I'm going to come back and really prepare myself for the week: know what I'm going to wear each day, have small goals for each day, etc. I really want to start the week on a positive note and am hoping this will do it for me. I will track my goals and how I did in my journal and am looking forward to having a good report at the end of the week.

Better Today

Saturday, February 26, 2011

I spent the evening playing board games with my daughter and her friend. I got to bed early and slept well. My attitude this morning is much better. I'm now pondering what to do that is fun, active and cheap. I am just not in the mood to sit around the house or spend the day doing housework.

    Reading library books always helps me and it's super cheap (as long as your library isn't a 4 hr. round trip like mine!)

Bubble baths are also wonderful!

Still Trying Not to Stress

Friday, February 25, 2011

My work is very tedious, I still don't have a set schedule and I don't know for sure if I will get paid. The girl I work under is having personal problems and is not very pleasant. Can you tell that I'm not pleased with my job situation?

    Sorry to hear what you're going through, Patty. I know it's easier said than done, but try not to let the other girl's attitude get to you -- people can sure make a difference in a day. I hope she resolves her own personal situation and stops taking our her frustrations on you, so you can enjoy your day, without having to deal with other's frustrations and with a lot less stress.

    Oh Patty that's such bad luck. I hope it resolves next week.
Try to distract yourself and put that theme aside in your mind, until you go back.

Trying Not to Stress

Thursday, February 24, 2011

I am trying very hard to not stay stressed about my job situation. But it's very difficult when I've been told 3 different schedules. And I still have not signed any papers with the employment agency. I tried twice to find one of it's locations but couldn't. The guy that called me about the job told me last week he would be out Tuesday with the paperwork. I've been trying ever since to reach him to no avail. One girl at work e-mailed him. He e-mailed back that he would call me. I'm still waiting.

Meanwhile, I will use today to do some tasks that I've been putting off for awhile. Hopefully this will keep my mind off of things. When I go in tomorrow, I will talk to the lady that I report to and see if I can get things straightened out with her. I hope that if we can't reach the employment agency, that she will just hire me on. Maybe that's a high hope. Maybe it will be a wasted week. I will cross that bridge tomorrow.

    Oh no, who needs that kind of stress? I'd be very worried, good for you trying to stay in control and taking your mind off the situation by doing something you need to get done anyway... sounds like some good advice, I should try to put in to practice..

    I am so glad you are focused on what you can do today! There is so much that can be done when we're just "hanging out!"

My hope is that the job situation gets figured out soon!!

Wish you the best!!

    Been there, done that. Sometimes the agencies are more trouble than they are worth. Just work the the job and make sure you watch out for yourself and all will be OK. GOOD LUCK!
