Back to Work

Wednesday, September 07, 2011

Really enjoyed the time off. Hard to want to get back to life. Enjoyed being out in the gorgeous weather, walking, hiking in the beautiful outdoors.

Don't know what boss is expecting from me. He moved me to co-worker's office. Seems like the change is upsetting to me...he just moved my computer....what about my files etc. Can I move them too...not ready to come back and face it all...yet I want to be a team player. The other side of me is...I have a nice job...I have a job right now...just deal with it and move on. Not sure why change is getting harder for me. Not always liking what I do. Have felt like I need to move on yet jobs are hard to find and I'd be leaving them in a hard place right now with co-worker off for awhile....

Change is may be for the best. Life is full of change. Is it fear of the unknown?

Off to make it a great day. Who knows what God has in store for me up ahead....

    Fear of the unknown sometimes holds us back in a place where we are unhappy. Sure can't figure out why all your stuff wouldn't be moved. Ask your boss and see what his ideas are.

    It would help, I am sure, if your boss would just share his thinking with you. I hope you had the great day you were planning to have!

    I would just ask him. It seems crazy to not move your files too!

I hope you have a wonderful day!

Home Safe and Sound

Tuesday, September 06, 2011

Made it home safely around 6:15 tonight. Had a wonderful time. We went to Anheizer Bush Clydesdale breeding farm, restaurant in cave, adventuring, walking, biking, walking hills...rested and refreshed and not ready to get back into life :(

Boss moved my computer to co-worker's office while she's out. Debbie Downer finally had her baby but had complication and with 4 surgeries and hysterectomy she is recovering in ICU. So feel so sorry about what happened to her. Baby is fine. yet part of me knows she will work the system with this...any little twinge and boss will tell her to go home and pay her. I hate having that attitude...I truly feel sorry that this exciting happy time has been so difficult for her....yet my past experience tells me she will use this to not work. Mad at myself and feel guilty for my feelings. How terrible to have those feelings.

I feel the stress already creeping up my neck.

Meeting friend for lunch on Thursday and seeing if she knows of any opportunities out there for me down the road.

Time off was good...reminds me I need to look for something else.

Off to spend some more time with hubby

    Glad you had such a great and relaxing time!!! Praying for your co-worker that she will have a complete recovery and glad that the baby is fine. Don't let the stress about her get your best and cause you trouble. Hopefully you can find something else before she gets back to work. Enjoy the time with your DH and remember to take a little time each day just for you!!!

Vacation uPDATE

Sunday, September 04, 2011

Having a great time but woke up with stiff neck and headache. UGH! Drove with BFF to visit her mom and brother yesterday and had an awesome time. Still feels like we were in high school when we are around them. Long to grow old like her mom. She is so fun to be around. She is always trying new crafts and coming up with new ideas and busy busy. Could outwork me any day. Hopefully BFF and Mom will come out to visit this fall.

Anheiser Bush Clydesdale Farms were really neat. Saw 4 month old colt...looked almost like a regular horse. Beautiful animals.

Went on dinner train ride last night. Was really neat and enjoyed myself. Had Salmon for my dinner. Very nice through countryside in the evening. Got home and thought I'd get a good night sleep...not! Hate it when I wake up and can't sleep or have headache...Ugh!

Still having fun! Going to cave restaurant today and bike riding. Taking a long bike ride tomorrow. That will be fun!

Off for a long weekend

Thursday, September 01, 2011

I finally made it to Thursday. Working until noon and then off to my BFF's for an extra long weekend! Can't wait. Have been able to get what I have to have in my small suitcase...I think as we have a tiny trunk. Joy of sports cars. We have alot of physical activities planned. We are going to my BFF's exercise class tomorrow AM...I can usually make it through it...hope I still can. Off to Bush Farms in the afternoon to see the baby Clydesdales...more walking and outside...yes. Saturday off to visit her Mom (my second mom since high school) about an hour away. Then back to dress and go on evening dinner train ride. Then renting bikes the next day for an afternoon of bike riding. Love riding bikes. On my agenda to purchase one in the near future....eating dinner in a cave restaurant...then how knows what else we will come up with???? Looking forward to time with BFF...we only talk daily but enjoy our times together.

I am looking forward to time away from work. Mom is doing well right now...until we come I feel good about being gone for a few days. Felt sorry for her yesterday as I ate my packed lunch at her house yesterday being we were going to be gone and asked if she'd heard from my sister in law. Said she calls but they never answer and she's given up leaving messages as they never call her back. We are the only ones that pay attention to her. I grumble alot because she is difficult and demands a lot of attention...but feel sorry at this stage that they don't at least call her once in awhile and when she does talk to her...her phone is always about to die and she can't talk long.

Co-worker finally had her baby but guess there were problems and she had C-section and has been in ICU with blood loss. She's just had a rough time having her little girl...the whole 9 months long.

Off to make it a great day...can't wait to be on our adventure.

Glorious Wednesday

Wednesday, August 31, 2011

Co worker finally had her baby c-section last night. Been in hospital for a day or so. I'm sure she's glad it's over. Been a long 9 months and long delivery.

Looking forward to Thursday...can't wait to get away....long trip (about 10 hours each way) but it will be good for us.

Best friend has a busy long weekend. We'll go to her exercise class on Friday...then off to see Budwiser breeding stables for their Clydesdales and see the babies! That will be fun! Saturday she and I will drive an hour to visit with her mom and take her to lunch while the boys watch Mizzou playing football. Then we get home and get ready to have a nice dinner/train ride through the countryside. Sunday afternoon we rent bikes and ride through the countryside all afternoon and eat dinner in a cave restaurant. Monday we relax and do whatever we want and Tuesday we head home. Always good to be with my BFF. We always have a good time, laugh much and relax.

Not much trunk room so been working on how to pack everything I really need instead of everything I usually take. Working with BFF to see what she has I can borrow instead of hauling with me. Kind of challenging. Glad I started early as brain doesn't always want to work after working all day and hard to focus on what to pack at night.

Off to work...then lunch at Mom's, then exercise tonight also with Mom. We'll at least get one day in this week.

Off to make it a great day!
