It's a Great Day

Sunday, May 08, 2011

It's a beautiful Mother's Day - it's gorgeous and sunny outside. I went to church, visited with my mother and am spending the day with my youngest baby. Can't ask for anything more!

A Day to Accomplish My Indoor List

Friday, May 06, 2011

I dropped my car off at the shop yesterday afternoon to take care of (hopefully) a minor problem. The weather this morning is drizzly. I am looking forward to using the time to do at least some of the indoor things that I have been putting off for the last couple weeks. Okay, some of the things I've been wanting to do for a month now! Time to get moving before my motivation moves without me!

The Weather's Finally Breaking

Thursday, May 05, 2011

The Michigan weather is finally warm enough for me to walk outside again. I've gone out three times in the last week, each day for a little bit longer walk. I'm already planning my walking time for today and really looking forward to it. There's nothing like walking outside to clear the head.

I'm also definitely going to take the time to make a couple phone calls and to stop at a couple stores. I need to find out quickly about improving my clerical skills. I really need to be able to land a job ASAP.

Needing to Improve Myself

Wednesday, May 04, 2011

After taking so many pre-employment tests and having so many phone interviews, I know I need to keep improving my skills. I need to communicate better still. I need to brush up on some computer skills. I need a shot of marketability and a shot of self-worth. Now to go seek and I shall find....

    Patty YOU CAN DO IT. You saw and recognized the need, you are a success not a failure. You are the top and not the bottom, you are going to achieve what you work at and believe God to do what you can't do.

Time to be More Proactive

Tuesday, May 03, 2011

It's time to do some thinking and planning on my part to make my life more interesting and fulfilling and less depressing. I'm starting to get in a rut and want to get out of it before I get stuck. I hate calling in the troops to help me get out when I know I have the ability to do it myself.

So, I'm going to read my SP notebook and some motivational articles. Then, I'm going to plan what I'm going to do each day to improve not only myself, but those people and places around me. It may take me a couple days to get a definitive plan, but I'll get there.

    I need to take your advice... I've let myself get down in the dumps again too. Getting a lay-off notice pkg. in the mail yesterday didn't help. Then the superintendent sent an email, apologizing for all the probationary teachers getting the lay-off notice, it was their mistake... doesn't help you feel much better. They don't know who or how many or when they can even let us know, but there will be lots!!! Hard to live with that over your head....How's your job situation going?
