Wonderful Wednesday

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

In the office by myself for the next two days. Boss gave me new project to work on that should keep me busier than I've ever been. Busy so I don't concern myself with the office environment.

Fixed dinner and had Mom over last night. Turned out OK. Been around her more and she likes it. The more we are around her the better she does. Just hard to fit her in 5-6 days per week! She'd like daily if we'd squeeze her in.

Daughter got paperwork and she starts Grad School in the fall. Yipee! She is so pumped. Son is busy picking up cap and gown and finishing details for graduation in May. My kids do it in their own time but they get it done. I'm proud of both of them.

    Isn't it great when your kids are doing OK - knowing that you taught them to do for themselves by letting go. That's our job as parents - rear responsible persons.

Had a nice girl's day with Mom Saturday. Hopefully we got some things she's been needing. She seemed in good mood yesterday. Thought she might be stiff and sore but seemed in good mood. The day out did her good.

Off to see what this week has to bring and what I can make out of it. emoticon

Finally have a day I can go to Zumba/Curves. Looking forward to see what it's like.

Up early and getting things done before heading out and taking Mom shopping today. Wonder what today will bring? With a good attitude we'll see what today brings. I pray for strength, understanding and to slow down and enjoy our time together. Never know how many times we will get to have a girls day out together. I know Mom enjoys them immensely.

Finally Friday

Friday, March 11, 2011

Had a challening day at work yesterday. I think Co-worker likes to do whatever she can to make us look bad in front of the boss when he's there and she did it up right yesterday. Interesting how she reprimanded me for adding a comment when she was talking to the boss...that she was handling it. When another co-worker and i were working with a customer she comes in and interrupts and adds things we have already discussed with she can't live by her own rules. Wish it would roll off my back instead of make a saddle sore under my chair. Plus had car trouble and had to go home and get the truck which made me late for getting back from lunch...and you know who was waiting...Debbie Downer. Some days feels like you can't win. Know I just have to deal with it yet hate feeling of having to watch my back because she's gonna get me with something. I filed a bunch of paperwork for her yesterday to help clean up the file room...she'd just thrown them around in there. Thought it would be good to help out...asked her first if that was ok with her. Not used to working in environment where there is discord and tension. Why can't we just get along. Don't have to be best friends just work together as a team. It would be so much smoother and helpful if we could. We'd soar with the eagles. Now we're stuck swimming in the muck and mire. Always positive in the AM. I start off with a good attitude and we have some good days where I think there is hope. I'm there for a reason to learn and grow and deal with the situation.

    God definitely has a plan for you in this situation. Best of luck to you as I continue to pray for your situation. It has to be very hard to work under these conditions. Praying....

    You coworker sounds annoying. There are some good books about how to deal with difficult people. We had a situation like this one and applied one of their solutions and it worked. :) Good luck.
