Forgive Me

Wednesday, June 08, 2011

Forgive me, team members, if I can't get back to the computer today to be active on SP. I go straight from my 9-hour job to my 3-hour class today. Again, today, the heat is stifling and seems to drain what little energy I have (96-98 today!). Tomorrow should be a LITTLE better and I should be back into the swing of things Friday, if not - definitely Saturday! Happy Sparking!

I'm Already Tired

Tuesday, June 07, 2011

The weather is stifling today - a record setter of 94. There was very little for me to do at work today. There was an accident in addition to heavy traffic on the way home. I got off work at 5 and walked in the door at about 6:20. Somehow I don't think I'm going to make it to the Avon meeting that's about a half hour away. I did want to go, but I do know I have to go right to school tomorrow after work. So, tomorrow will be another long day. I'm definitely not used to putting in long hours. What am I going to do when I do get a full time job? I imagine I will get used to it. I also will know not to overextend myself when I come home. (Like moving clothes from one closet to another that I did last night instead of resting!) I'm hoping a lot of it is just the heat.

Quieter Day Than Expected

Monday, June 06, 2011

Work was very quiet today. I don't know if this is to be expected all week or if it's just an unusual day. But..it is money coming in, at least for a week. I did bring some things from home that needed working on and got a chance to accomplish at least that much.

I got my closet painted yesterday thinking that I started class tonight. It really didn't take very long to do. The hardest part was waiting for it to dry between coats.

I read through (quickly) the first two chapters of my workbook for school. I then double-checked what building and room number I needed to go to. It's a good thing I did - I realized that the class doesn't start until Wednesday. Good thing I checked!

So my week won't be quite as crazy as I thought it would be. This will give me a chance to return some library books after work. I will also be able to start going through my old closet and transfer them to the freshly painted closet. It's a little difficult to still have my things in two different rooms.

It sure does seem strange to have a scheduled work time and to work the rest of my responsbilities and to-do things around it. It would be nice to find a permanent job - even a part-time one - where I could finally get on a schedule like most people have. Patience...patience...I know there's a perfect job out there for me somewhere. Just need it sooner rather than later...

    It seems things usually work out. I am glad that you are not going to be overwhelmed as badly as you thought. Maybe this job will lead to another. I have had that happen more than once. Enjoy our class. Nola

    What course are you taking? I had looked at the university calendar when it came in too, but don't have the attention span right now. I hope it goes well for you and maye even increases the skills you have to offer so you do get that new job sooner r/t later. emoticon

Getting Ready for Busy Week

Sunday, June 05, 2011

I'm trying to do as much as I can today because this week is a little busier than I had intended it to be. But I will take it in stride and do the best I can. What doesn't get done this week will be there next week when I won't be working. It's just a temporary adjustment to my schedule that I will deal with.

I've been trying so hard to find work that if I do find something long-term or permanent, I know it will take me awhile to get adjusted to the new schedule. I've done it before and I can do it again.

I Did Ask for It

Saturday, June 04, 2011

I know I stated that I wanted to stay busy for a few weeks. But I didn't expect quite so much next week. A friend wants to take me to a museum after church tomorrow. I will be filling in for an executive assistant that is going on vacation for the week. I start a new class Monday night and go again Wednesday. Tuesday, I am committed to an Avon meeting. Thursday, I signed up for a Bible Study Class. I have to get the closet painted in my daughter's old room before I can move my clothes from my old closet. (and then paint that closet.) So, if I seem a little scarce on SP next week, you'll know why. BUT, I am determined to spend a little time each day on SP - it's too much a part of me now to let a day go by without it. What I can't get done next week will still be waiting for me the following week. I've never know chores to get up and leave just cuz a person can't get to them right away.

    You know what they say, "Be careful what you ask for". But, it's good to busy if you're accomplishing things and sounds like you will be... Remember to take care of yourself first...

    Sounds like a busy week! I'm sure as long as you make a little time each day for YOU (even just logging in here at SP for a little bit) you will be just fine! Hope you have some fun too!
