Michigan Weather

Sunday, March 06, 2011

Yesterday, I woke up to fairly mild temperature and rain. As the day progressed, it got colder and went from rain to sleet to about 2" of snow. I was really tired all day.

This morning, I woke up to sunshine and slushy roads. By the time church ended, the roads were fine. The sun is still shining and I seem to have much more energy. What a difference a day and the sun makes!

I realize that March in Michigan can be a roller coaster of weather, but I sure do love the sunshiny days! And I hold onto the fact that each day will be getting a little better weather-wise. I know I've been used to Alabama weather in March. I guess I'm just doing a little bit of wishing for the best of both worlds.

Weekends are So Very Needed

Saturday, March 05, 2011

I feel so much better mentally and physically on the weekends. This tells me that I am allowing too much stress to come into my life during the week. I'm not dealing with this stress correctly because I feel it WAY too much. Time to go over my stress articles and start using the correct techniques to combat it! And I'm glad I have time allotted this morning to internet job hunt. I know a new job will take much of that stress away. Sometimes a person and a particular job just don't go well together!

    Patty are you doing some exercise for stress management, I find that if I don't my mental heath deteriorates dramatically.

Overslept to start my Day

Friday, March 04, 2011

I overslept this morning. It rained/sleeted just before I left for work and left icy patches on the roads everywhere. Trying to avoid an accident, I started sliding and ended up heading toward a parking lot where a mail box knocked out a small part of my bottom grill. But I did make it to work on time. Many at my work didn't and there were a lot of accidents all over the place.

The girl I work under pointed out to me that I shouldn't cut off a major crinkle on the papers I get ready for her to scan. This came the day after she told me she couldn't have ANY crinkles in the paper. Can't make her happy - don't know that I can. So, I just stayed quiet and out of everyone's way and took my good old time going through the folders today. Not much else to do. I am trying my best to find another job as I realize this job and I were not meant to be together.

My back is a little sore tonight from being so tense today. I think a long, hot bubble bath is in order along with an early bed time. Tomorrow is another day.

Still Hunting An Attitude Adjustment

Thursday, March 03, 2011

I did catch up a little on my sleep last night, which has helped my attitude a little bit. But I'm still in a bit of a funk that I can't seem to shake yet. I'm hoping that by staying busy and accomplishing some things that I need to do today will help. I know that if I have a good job interview and get that office manager job, my attitude should improve a bunch. I know that the job I have right now is not a good fit for me, and wonder if that has a bit to do with my attitude problem. I also know that if I get a little more sleep each night, that should help, too. So...I've got some work to do today.

Decisions to be Made

Wednesday, March 02, 2011

I realized today that this job is not the best suited to me. I am doing one thing over and over for 8 hours a day. The girls in the office don't talk to me I'm not getting enough money or hours. And my ADD will kick in now and again because it's easy to drift when doing a repetitive action all day.

I also think that my doctor's lowering of my thyroid medicine may not be in my best interest right now. I don't feel like my energy level is what it was.

I've got tomorrow off. I will be calling my doctor in the morning and hunting jobs. I will go over my job interview notes before I go to my job interview at 1 pm. And I'm really hoping I have some good luck on my side at this job interview.

    Yes I hope that you have a good interview too, Patty.
The problem with the thyroid is that yo have to wait 2 months to do a new test when they modify the dose, they say it takes that long to stabilise.
