Doing better with tracking eating and planning ahead and not eating out so much. Big pat on my back. Takes more work though and planning!
Yesterday co-worker came back who's been off for surgery. Our Debbie Downer was in rare form. She has been OK while other co-worker was off. She was grouchy, grumpy and irritable. In the morning the atmospher was tense. Other co-worker and I just stayed in our offices and worked and tried to leave her alone.
As the day went on and Debbie Downer got enough Mt Dew in her she perked up. There is always some drama about her family or friends that gets her down. She never even asked Co-worker how she was feeling or doing. It's all about her. Her baby is due in September and as much as she's been gone...thinking she will be leaving soon...one could only hope!
Former co-worker kept telling me...don't let her drag you down...you two pull her up. Doesn't seem to work that way. How we allow one person to control the office is beyond me. I try real hard...not to let her control it...but she does. You can't talk to her or she bites your head off. Other co-worker and just try to converse together...but then it feels like you are leaving her out or she butts into your conversation with criticism...so we resort to being quiet until she becomes pleasant.
It really drags me down and dislike the work environment. She was better when it's just two of us. Don't know why the 3 makes her different.
I won't let her make me a bitter person but a better person. Will spend more time in quiet time and prayer! Off to make it a great day!
