Woke up early with a killer headache. Waiting for it to ease some. Off to church in a little while. Hopefully it will ease by then. Then last day of RV show. Went well yesterday but slow. Think today will be slower. Still having issues with a co-worker. She sets me off. Don't know why she does. Need to work on that and try to understand it. She wants to be babied and has an "Oh poor me" attitude and it drives me up the wall. I gotta get myself in hand and deal with my feelings and just go on.

Performance review went well! Got a raise and another week's vacation! Yipee! Trade show went well last night. It was slow traffic wise but getting co-worker from the other office used to doing them and get a little excitement into their lives. Today getting the show started and set up and then 3 other co-workers will run it. Thankfully it's only 5 minutes from my house.

Heading to Florida Feb 2 for a long weekend with my daughter. The countdown has started. Can't wait to go!

Have performance review today -unless my boss can't get out of his driveway like last time :) at 9 at Panera bread. Then back to the office for a short while and then off to the RV Show. Wonder what today will bring?

Having issues at work hungry all the time or not hungry but want to eat all the time. I think about food all the time. Gotta work on that.

Co-worker was OK yesterday. I tell myself just do your work don't get wrapped up in her mood of the moment. Just go on your way until she wants/needs to talk with you. Rise above and don't let her control your mood or atmosphere.

Off to seize the day!

    Having the same problem about thinking of food all the time. May try the water--keeping some by my side to drink. Wish I could think different, I guess I need more to do!!! But we'll both hang in there and keep fresh veggies to munch on. Brenda

    Drink more water. It'll give you something to do with your hands. This is how I slowed down my "grazing" at work. It was especially difficult for me since the folks at work love bringing in goodies for just no reason at all. Plus, we have parties for every single holiday...

I'm not complaining but, I just really didn't need the additional excuses to overeat.

Well here we are at Thursday. One co-worker was off again yesterday. Think maybe it was the flu not just morning sickness. My early AM meeting yesterday was canceled due to weather. So much for getting up early...guess I got more time to get a few things done at home.

Gearing up for another weekend in our booth at the RV Show.

    Enjoy your weekend at the RV Show. We are getting 6-8" of snow by 6 am Friday and then an Arctic blast is coming through for the weekend. Mind if I stop at your booth? Have a wonderful Friday.

Wednesday Morning

Wednesday, January 19, 2011

Well here it is 4:14 am and up early to get my workout in and off to early meeting. Been crazy busy recently. Used to forgo the am workouts and decided to try getting up and get it all we'll see how I do...just got to thinking I'm working the trade show all weekend...may be a mistake loosing some sleep this week. Been doing pretty good not being tired in the afternoons.

Had a stressful day yesterday. Other co-worker came back after being gone for a week on vacation. She was pitiful laid on her desk and started crying when the boss talked to her about how sick she was. I am usually sympathetic to others but she is milking being PG for all it's worth. If you are sick..don't come to work. She can probably tell my body language. She made it a point to talk to everyone else but me. She was just downright rude. I make an effort to greet her and she ignores me and won't look at me. She cried and laid around for 1 1/2 hours and finally went home. Amazingly she was able to talk with a policy holder and be normal and pleasant. Oh well gonna be a long 9 months. With my new position maybe i won't have to be in the office as much. I gotta get over trying to take it personally. Just be quiet and shut my mouth and work. I am changing because I usually tried to keep peace at all costs and now I need to be careful I don't spout my mouth off. What is happening to me? I'm normally not like that. Other co-worker and I get a long well. Need to not talk to her about it. Just fuels the fire.

Things had calmed down at work for awhile and here we go again.

Guess God is working on me in this area. I pray it grows and molds me into more like Him and not some crazed worker out to get her co-worker. I need to rise above this situation. Everyone is not going to like me. It surprises me because when it is just her and I in the office we seem to get along fine. Guess this is just part of the journey and I will learn more about myself through this. Hopefully this will make me better and not worse.

Well off to start the day!

    How close your story sounds to my own recently. I get up every morning at 4:30 AM and do my exercising. I know for myself it is easier to do then and I'm a morning person.

I just went through the same thing with the girl I work with in my office. She was also pregnant.

I've been doing her job and mine now since December 17. It's all good though. I love my job and my job is helping people no matter who is or isn't in the office beside me.

God gives us what we can handle. You are going through this to find answers. Stick to your plan because it's a good one.

Have a blessed day ~ Donna
