Monday Morning

Monday, November 01, 2010

Had a good weekend! Took Mom to get her hair done Saturday morning, my turn to lead a Bible study Saturday and we got MOM's Big ROCK put in and her yard cleaned up for fall. Big rock was much easier to do than I thought. Thankfully my hubby's an engineer and they like to do all that leverage stuff and it works!

Had neat sermon yesterday about it being "worth it". Hubby took Mom to stores to stock her up 3 1/2 hours worth. I finally got some house cleaning done and that felt good plus a 1/2 hour nap. Then we were off to Cincinnati to spend time with my son and daughter in law and her family for Halloween. She and her grandma make homemade doughnuts every year and they were yummy. It was cute to see the little kids dressed up. Mom seemed to enjoy it all. Good to get her out and around people and family.

Got home around 10 pm and hit the hay.

Ready to start the week. Lots of interesting events up ahead this week.

Let's GO!

We've made it through the week! Emotions at work are doing better. Our difficult co-worker is kind of aloof and quiet..,which isn't a bad thing. Then by afternoon she perks back up and yesterday was almost back to her usual self. Don't know if it's hormonal or what as she has major issues with that and usually takes a couple days off a month.

Ate Skyline chili for lunch. Felt OK most of the day but last night boy my stomach was a mess. Usually don't have those issues.

Took mom out for dinner last night and she always rooks us into stopping by to pick things up for her...SAMS Club and then she hooked me into taking her to get her hair done on Saturday morning. That make 4 weekends booked up. It's taking a toll on the housework that's been neglected. Plus we need to put in her BIG ROCK that my hubby's been hauling around all summer in the back of his truck. She wants it in a flower bed. We need to get it out of the truck before winter etc. She had beautiful flowers in the bed and we didn't want to destroy them as they were so pretty. Always something for someone else. Plus it's my turn to lead the once a month Bible Study Saturday. Need to finalize memory verses to use. This time we chose a Saturday as her hubby is gone and she wants to do lunch for us. Study and accountability is an important priority in my life..just finding the time to squeeze it all in has been hard.

Reading an article about making time for yourself. My life has been so hectic and crazy recently. Need to carve out some time to do things at home. Don't know where to find it....but need to work on it. Been gone the last 3 weekends and glad I did. Things will slow down some with winter coming on Won't be traveling to visit friends as much.

Sunday Church and then to Cincinnati to spend the evening with son and daughter in law and their family with Mom. Having dinner and trick or treater night for them. Her family makes an event out of everything and Mom enjoys that. Daughter in law and her grandma make homemade doughnuts...a tradition every year. Mom likes all the family and activity going on there. It's good for her and us...just no time left to work on things around home.

Off to old office to do a final cleaning this AM. Last time I'll be in there. Lots of memories...yet time to move forward. Guess this is final closure.

Old boss wants to use our car in photo shoot for his catalogue...WOW! Have to work out those details. Always something!

Off to a good day and weekend...will try to put in some time for me to relax somewhere in the equation.

    With everything you have going on, I hope you find some time just for you for a moment of rest and relaxation. Maybe a quiet walk...

    Yes Kathleen you will have to find some time for yourself and for you and hubby. Doing for everyone else is nice but you are right you have to find some time to carve in for you. This also helps with your overall health and wellness. You are doing great and keep up the good work. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticonLynne

Had a rough day at work yesterday. The tension kept rising and my boss had us sit down for a meeting. I thought I could get along with anyone but am struggling with girl in office. It doesn't matter as it was obvious she is favored by the boss. Never thought I'd be like that. She does no wrong. All day she picked at how I put paper in the printer, we won lunch and she could only have pepperoni pizza or she'd order her own. It all seems so petty yet it was on and on all day long. My boss is young and i don't think handled it right...yet we know where we stand...she is right and it doesn't matter what we I quickly learned to keep the mouth shut. He wasn't interested in what we had to say.

I've worked in difficult situations but yesterday topped it off. I'm still upset about it.

I am a Christian and I don't like feeling so angry and like things aren't right. I like peace and harmony. Maybe my co-worker has influenced me to be this way...Wonder if I should look around for a job with benefits? Maybe things aren't going to work out there. Maybe I need to suck it up and do my job and keep my mouth shut.

I pray for wisdom, calmness and discernment. I pray for my emotions not to get in the way.

    I' suck it up and do your job WHILE YOU ARE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING ELSE!!! If I knew it would be temporary, I could suck it up and handle it better for a time. My experience is that it is always easier to find a new job when you still have one, but I haven't looked for one in a time. Praying for your situation and that you will be SHOWN what His will is for you. Brenda

Well we made it to Tuesday. Boss will be working in our office today. Co-worker who's been off will be back today...hurray! The other co-worker must have OCD. She kinda drove me nuts obsessing about something that wasn't her business all afternoon. She needed to let it go. In the end she called our boss and he agreed to take it over and it wasn't something he should deal with. Now I know what our other co-worker was talking about. Oh well we'll keep on working in spite of it. Guess it's some of the adjustment we all have to make.
