Nervous

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

Friday I have my one on one to discuss my options that may be demotion or layoff effective April 1. It will be nice just to get the waiting over with! We won't find out until March 1.

    Try and stay calm and carry on. It is hard to do under such stressful circumstances. But life has a way of unfolding and sometimes challenges can turn into opportunities not seen before. I wish you the very best of outcomes. Try to find moments to catch your breath and relax if you can. emoticon

    Hang in there! When one door closes, another one will open. Let us know what happens but we'll be thinking of you and hoping for the best.

    I went through that almost 5 years ago, my option was driving 75 miles to work, in Los Angeles traffic, actually it was an easy decision, I had taken the bus previously and only about 20 miles, needless to say if I had gone to the new place, my job only would have lasted 6 or 8 months, so glad I opted out, I was close to 65 so medicare was just around the corner,
it is such a hard decision, and so often we have no choice, just have to hear what someone else decided about our life, but we made it, and I am honestly the better for it.
I wish you the very best

I was under lots of stress for over 6 months because, we knew it was happening, just not when

    Hang in there. Sadly, a demotion will at least keep you employed. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

    I have very little debt and I am doing the same thing. I want to get back to using my daily credit card only you know for shopping and such! I am so happy I have a couple of big ones though, when my car needed a new muffler and my Kitty got sick...Good luck!

    That's wonderful. I am trying to save for traveling and even small cutbacks take a lot of discipline to achieve! Congratulations! emoticon

Fitbit Customer Support are AWESOME!

Saturday, January 26, 2013

They were quick to respond to my emails and offered suggestions to get my Fitbit One up and going due to it was in the rain all night and looked like it was stepped on or ran over by the car. They are sending me a replacement! I highly recommend this vendor! emoticon

    Wow...you found it and then the company actually cared if you were able to use it?! Sounds like something to highly recommend it! Good for them and you!

    My first fitbit was defective. Got free replacement inside of 3 days. Then 3 months later I lost my fitbit while out shopping. They answered the email immediately and let me buy another at half price. The newest one!!! Aren't they great? I mean, you lose one and they still give you a deal? Wonder customer service!!!

    Oh my gosh. That seems to happen to a lot of people. They should make a better attachment for it. Try complaining to the company and see what happens. Worth a shot. emoticon

Fitbit One sleep tracker solution!

Monday, January 21, 2013

Press and hold until the stopwatch appears when your ready to sleep. Then, press and hold when you awaken. Next time you sync your device it will show up on your tracker.

  I always wake up exhausted. My fitbit one says I am waking up over 20 times during the night. Ouch! I am hoping that knowing this, I can try some different things to improve my sleep.

    The tracker showed I was in bed 8:07, asleep 7.57, awaken 8 times. Interesting!

    There is always a simple answer once someone lets you know what it is of course. Have fun with that new fangled toy of yours. It sounds like great fun! emoticon

    Great, thanks for the update. How does it know when you are finally asleep as opposed to waiting to fall asleep? It will be interesting to hear your updates. I've thought about a Fitbit but don't want another piece of equipment that I won't use.
