Terrific Fall

Thursday, September 22, 2011

Have enjoyed our company. Today they head home and tomorrow night my daughter flies home. Can't wait to get my arms around her. Guys were out of town yesterday evening so Betty and I went into town after I got home from work to the coffee shop, had a coffee and sat and talked for a couple of hours. It was relaxing and enjoyable. Then we came home and we made a salad for dinner. Just had a nice evening. They are special dear friends.

We were able to meet up with two friends from church for lunch. That was nice for the four of us to catch up.

When I look back - it was just a nice day. Hope they had a nice visit. The boys got to do their thing...trains, cars, computers.

God puts special friends into our lives and they are some of those.

Work has been OK. Co-worker who is off will be back in November. So we have awhile before she will be back. Other co-worker and I will go to visit her next week and take pizza and see the baby. Maybe some of these things will make her a more pleasant person to work with????

Off to make it a great day!

Fabulous Wednesday

Wednesday, September 21, 2011

Been busy at night with company. Mom decided she wanted to come over for dinner last night. She said she can't eat lasagna....go figure. So picked her up and she could eat it. Never ceases to amaze me. Afterwards we went for icecream our company's treat. Of course Mom couldn't eat her icecream...but licked the dish clean. Go figure!

Frustrated at work. Dislike all the politics. Boss asks everyone how everyone is doing but the person and asks everyone but me. Then co-worker tells me what he tells her. Which I guess I'm glad I know to be prepared but frustrated with it all. Then I question just exactly what is said or is she just trying to manipulate me. Never had to deal with all these petty things going on. Growing real tired of it all. Yet not sure if I can't deal with it and should just suck it up and deal with it. With company it's hard to think about it yet it is eating at me. Last night I decided I need to turn it over to God. He knows I'm struggling with it. He knows the income is nice right now. He knows the flexibility is good right now. I will trust Him in this journey right now. I also realize I'm tired from the company and Mom right now. Feeling like I need time away...and just came back from vacation a few weeks ago. Although feeling like I want time alone someplace.

Keeping up with morning exercise. Know it helps to relieve stress some and energize me.

Off to make it a great day!

    Try not to let your boss exert his/her power over you. Sounds like this is some sort of manipulation. The job you have in today's economy is golden, especially since the income is good and the flexibility is good. If you've turned it over to Him, trust that He will help you. Your mom sounds like she is looking for attention, or comfort. Good for you keeping up with your morning exercise. This will help you cope with all that is going on in your life at the moment. Keep your chin up!

    emoticon and a suggestion...Try reading Joyce Meyer's latest book, Living Beyond Your Feelings! Strategies for not letting our emotions control us! (Reading it myself and finding it helpful; I have been in similar work situation,) Kudos for hanging in there on your own and good attitude! emoticon emoticon

Busy week

Tuesday, September 20, 2011

Proud of still here and managing to get to bed around 10 pm and up at 5 to keep on track exercising and Sparking.

Our company now leaves Thursday morning and our daughter flies up for a weekend visit on Friday night! Can't wait to squeeze her. It won't be long enough but learning to take whatever time God gives to us.

We were busy at work yesterday. We have our days. Co-worker with new baby is doing well. Wonder how it will be if/when she comes back to work? Appreciating working together with co-worker wthout all the drama and emotions.

Off to make it a great day!

Back on Focus

Monday, September 19, 2011

Have been having a wonderful time with company. Good to have them visiting except we've been eating way too much! Everything tasting so good..but need to refocus today and get back on track. Went to bed at 10. Not sure how long they stayed up. Woke up around 4:30 so must have gotten a good night rest.

Went to brunch after church with the girls. Guys went to a train show. We had my friend Betty, Mom and another lady. We had a nice time. Then we went to visit friend who'd just had a double mastectomy. Can't believe you get out of the hospital so quickly and that she was doing so well. This lady has been battling Leukemia for over 20 years and she is still going strong. She is an awesome lady. They told her she wouldn't have children and she has 3 wonderful kids. She is the major breadwinner of the family and she keeps on going. She has a positive attitude. You go there to cheer her up and she cheers you up.

Realized how lacking I am visiting those who are ill.

Mom was feeling good. She spent the day with us. Couldn't believe it. She enjoys Betty. She is funny and nice to be with. Took her home around 5. Worked on putting together a puzzle. Thought she'd want to go home after brunch and then after visiting our friend and then she wanted to hang out with us all afternoon. Hopefully we wore her out and she'll have a good night's sleep.

Have staff teleconference first thing this AM.

Company enjoying themselves and they decided to stay another day until Thursday. While I'm working they are visiting and hanging out with other friends in the area. Glad they feel comfortable at our B&B emoticon Kinda miss having company. We used to have company more often and I enjoy entertaining. With working full time-it's hard to fit it in.

Off to make it a great day!


Fabulous Friday

Friday, September 16, 2011

Think I'm about ready for our company tonight.

Went to Curves by myself last night. Mom didn't want to go. The workout felt good. Really feel stronger in my upper body. Think Curves helps with that. Always glad I push myself. Often just hard at the end of the day.

Work really going better with just the two of us. We may have long days and challenging days but not worrying about someone stabbing you in the back or leave feeling frustrated with injustices.

Still not loving my job. Thinking there has to be something more to life than this. Feeling like I have more to give and more to do than what I am doing.

Looking forward to time with dear friends this weekend.

Off to make it a great day!
