Making it through transition at work. Yesterday was day 2 and things went more smoothly...got my computer up and working. Learning where things are and working on assimilating the files...what a big job. Mostly getting my head around everything.

Fall is upon us. We have a yard full of leaves already.

To wonderful drive to Cincinnati (about an hour away) and met up with son and daughter-in-law for dinner. Had a wonderful time with them. Usually do!

Today housework, yard work, hair cut. Tomorrow church and taking Mom to Decorator Show Home. It's an old home decorators have redone. It sounds really neat. We are both looking forward to going while hubby goes to a model train show and swap meet.

    Glad to hear that the transition is getting easier. However about those files....I am not doing it, but it sounds like an incredible big job! Good Luck with that. Glad to hear you took some time out to spend with your son and daughter-in-law. Don't work too hard this weekend. Take some time for you. Be good to yourself. You are not far from my thoughts and prayers. Take it easy! emoticon emoticon emoticonLynne

Friday

Friday, October 01, 2010

Well we made it to Friday. Had a melt down before going to work and hubby was supportive. We made a date to go out in the car and dinner together. Made something to look forward to. Don't know why change is so hard. Morning was a little rough...couldn't find things...didn't know how to work the phones...it was crazy busy, couldn't get logged on to the computer I was using until I can get mine up and going. Didn't even have time for lunch. But I got things put into my desk and I got better and calmer. Boss asked me to assimilate all the files. Not wanting to do that but no one wants to do it and I might as well suck it up and do it and get it done. I don't have a lot of other things on my plate right night and the other two girls sell. Everyone is "supposed to do it" when they have time...but it's not going to happen...everyone will put it off (like I want to)...so I might as well set my mind to it. He said after the files get assimilated...then we'll start working on my new position and working on the budget and plans for next year, So guess if I want that to get started...best get going. There are about 3000 files to assimilate and he thinks it will take a week or two and wants me to thin them out and pull the canceled ones...Thinking I will get some thinned and assimilated...won't be running back and forth to my computer to check and see if they are active or not at this time and he said that was OK. Thinking it might take longer...but got through B's and started c's yesterday..so maybe it won't take too long. Waiting for wireless card for computer so I can get it back together. Things will be fine and I will excel there...just have to wrap my mind around it. Got home changed clothes and then hubby and I went for a nice long ride and dinner. Enjoy just getting away. Ate too much...guess I'm a stress eater...but it felt good and I felt so much better afterwards...tried to make better choices broiled chicken medallions with vegetables. It was yummy. Did eat the brown bread brought to the table though. It was soooo good! Fell more refreshed and relaxed today. It's Friday....

    Its always tough starting a new job and learning everything. I am finally comfortable in my job and know what I'm doing, but I do remember going through that transistion period where I was overwhelmed. Just take it one day at a time (or even one task at a time) and you will be fine!!

    Better choices are always better! I know that the last time I binged I chose better. I figured that at least I was on the right track, even if I was binging... LOL!

Thursday

Having to talk to myself today. Packed up everything I need from the office. Will be moving what we don't need into another office for storage. Moved it to my new office..we are merging offices. I have gone from a nice sized office to a midget office where just my desk fits. I'm on a bummer this AM. I'm usually more positive...but not feeling it today. Husband helped me move things in after work and finally loaded everything into new office and we left around 8:45. I was worn out and tired. Husband has been on me...how they are taking advantage of me and how the other girls have bigger offices. I have had a good attitude up until today and this AM woke with everything crashing in. I know moving and change is stressful. Things are just the way they are...there isn't another office...I'm the last one to move. They are sales and need places for people to sit...I don't. I told hubby last night he is sometimes my worst person to overcome. He can have a critical spirit and I have to overcome his comments. His comments tend to float around in my head and I have to fight against them. I don't want to deal with all the changes and mind emotions of moving. I don't want to deal with two emotional women, The youngest is very moody and hormonal...or so I'm told. I was so tired last night. My knees were swollen from the defense class and after going up and down the stairs last night at work...they were shot. One of the first times my body hasn't been able to stand up to what I needed it to. Felt it first at exercise last night. So decided to rest my body this AM. Maybe I need exercise to reduce the stress I'm feeling but will be taking Mom to exercise tonight after work. I feel an emotional wreck physically and mentally this AM. Guess it's all due to the stress of change. Why is change so difficult on us? Decided maybe I needed more time on my knees this AM talking with God to get me through this season of change. I hate having to fight off hubby's critique...they just float in my head. On my knees before you Lord. Carry me and lead me where you wnat me to go. We're on this journey together

Wednesday

Wednesday, September 29, 2010

Well we've made it to Wednesday! Packed up office yesterday. Boss and I moved out 12 filing cabinets and my desk. He moved them to location we are merging with. Packed up a lot of the other things in my office that I will carry. Hubby will help me pack up computer and relocate it tonight Feeling ambivalent about the move. Change is always a little stressful. Been several months by myself and now back in with 2 other ladies. I worked with one of them and we get along fine but hear the other one is moody and up and down...so adjustment time again. My life seems like it's been in alot of turbulence and change since February when my old boss "retired", We went from an office of 6 down to 2 down to 1 and now back to 3. New job position which not sure how the other girls will react to it as I won't be able to help them as they sometimes think I'm their assistant because I like to see things run smoothly. Will move into Marketing Manager/Business Manager...should be interesting. When my boss asks me "Are you excited about the change?" I am cautious. Know I have to go through adjustments and find my nitch..."again". Although I think I'm tired of being my myself. Have just gotten lethargic by myself and I don't like being that way. A lot of exciting things ahead. Just taking one step at a time.

Finished self defense class last night and I didn't hurt myself...that I know of. It was RAD training. A co-worker got me involved in it. Last night we geared up and pretented to walk down a street and two guys grabbed us and we had to get out of it. There were two other scenerios we had to go through also. Creepy...you felt like you were in that situation and the emotions flooded over you. Didn't like the feeling although I made it through ok and did OK. We all got to see our video of what we did. Another experience...

Ready to finish packing up the office today and ready my head for the new adventure ahead of me! emoticon

Tuesday Morning

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

Well...we've made it to Tuesday morning. Went to a meeting last night after taking mom to exercise. She only made it once around but it has been two weeks. Daughter is settling in to her new place and loving it.

Packing up things at work. Will move Thursday now as one of the girls is off so might as well be there. Am moving with ambivalence...not sure what it will be like. I will adjust and think I will enjoy having more people around me again...but with people there are adjustments and moods to deal with.

Final Self Defense class tonight. Should be interesting.

Off to the day! emoticon

    Good luck with the move and I am sure you will find a way to adjust to the new situation. Yes there will be more people with moods etc. but just try not to get pulled into any of that. Be good to yourself. Good luck on your self defense class. Thinking of you emoticon emoticonLynne
