Bad Attitude

Tuesday, August 23, 2011

I have such a bad attitude when it comes to going to this job today. I don't want to go. I hate the commute. I didn't like that the boss waited until Sunday night at 8:30 to call and tell me that she had appointments yesterday and didn't need me to come in until today. I don't like how she decides on the fly when and for how long I come in. I'd rather spend my days putting my time into my Avon business and looking for another job. I have a typing test scheduled for the chance at county jobs and really need to practice. My speed is way down from not using it. I am just tired of my life being stuck in this rut and am looking for any way to change it.

    Good for you for going anyway. Sometimes we have to keep plugging away until we get to the next spot in our lives. Hang in there and keep working at making those changes.

    Good morning!
Above all else today....
Believe in yourself.
Concentrate on yourself and
your journey. Spend less time
wishing things were different
and more time accepting what
you've got as you strive to
make your dreams come true.
Then, you would have already
found peace and happiness
right there!

    No job is perfect. The job you are at is temp; look at what you like and don't like to use when you are interviewing for a 'permanent' job.

At least the boss called you Sunday night; some would wait till you showed up Monday morning to say 'we don't need you.'

See if you can find something positive about the job every day until the better job comes along.

A Day to See What I Can Come Up With

Monday, August 22, 2011

I got a phone call last night at 8:30 from my boss telling me that she has a couple appointments today and don't come in until Tuesday. She didn't know Thursday or Friday that she had these appointments? I get so aggravated with this job situation!

So, today is another day to see what I can accomplish, what jobs I can apply for, how many Avon books I can give out to new people, etc. I will stay busy, but I REALLY need a job that is more consistent, predictable and pays more money. I can't pay my bills now and I will soon have to start paying my student loan back. That's another $300 a month. There's got to be something out there. My luck has got to change eventually and turn somewhat good, doesn't it?

    Money stress is awful! I've been there. We still aren't flowing in money, but we at least have enough to keep our bills paid. We don't fight nearly as often now; we get along so much better! I sleep better too and am a lot less angry in general. I hope you find something soon. This job sounds like something for someone who needs a little extra cash, not a steady income. Good luck!

    You should be able to get a deferment on your student loans until something comes up. Just be sure to contact them as soon as possible. Just keep on doing what your doing to find new things.

A Good Day

Sunday, August 21, 2011

I'm having a good day today. I'm getting to do things that I have wanted to do for awhile, but just have been putting off for one reason or another, I actually got to sleep until I woke up without an alarm. I got to work on the yard and watch an air show while I did that. I found some old magazines in a friend's shed that I can't wait to look through. And I got to do a few more things that made me feel like I accomplished something. A definite good day so far.

The Best Laid Plans...

Saturday, August 20, 2011

Although I got some things accomplished yesterday, I didn't finish a lot of what I had set out to do. Sometimes days have their own plans and yesterday was certainly one of them.

The girl that wanted to meet me and buy a mirror that I have called when I was busy at my mom's. When I got done there and called her back, I didn't get an answer. I will try again today and hope that she's still interested and we can meet up sometime today.

I did manage to put in a job application and fill out a few online. There was more posted yesterday than I had seen in awhile. The pickings sure have been slim. I must still hang on to my hope of finding something - two days at only a few hours each day of a job just does not pay the bills.

My daughter from Alabama sent me a box of clothes that she thought I could use. I love it when she does that! She also sent the newspaper from when the south had that outbreak of tornadoes. It hits home easier when you actually see pictures! I'm so glad that she made it through with just minimal damage to her house!

Driving around doing my errands, my brake pedal started to squeak when pressed. So, off to Midas I went. Back breaks and a drum definitely bit the dust! Ouch! Just when I thought I had a little more control of my budget....

So, this means that today after my 9:00 dentist appointment, I will be going out trying to drum up some more Avon customers. Then, it's back to the internet to see what kind of job postings are out there. No rest for the wicked!

I Think It Will Be a Good Day

Friday, August 19, 2011

I woke up a little earlier than I had anticipated, but woke up motivated. I've got a few things accomplished that I wanted to get done already. I'm getting ready to jump through the shower so I can take advantage of the rest of the day and see how much else I can accomplish off of my to do list.

I've got a lead on a possible job and may have an interview for a one-month part time job with a company that I have subbed at before. This company must like something about me if they are willing to take a look at me for this job. The part-time job that I have now is giving me fewer and fewer hours and not even bothering to give me a set schedule. They call me the night before or the morning they want me to come in. It's getting to the point where it's not worth the aggravation or the gas that I use. Maybe the temp job will lead to something permanent.

A girl is going to meet me to buy a big mirror that I've been trying to sell. Hoping the rest of the day is as good and productive. No, wait - the rest of the day is going to be a great day!
