Magnificient Monday

Monday, October 10, 2011

Got alot of sleep over the weekend. Felt good but still feel tired this AM. Work is constantly on my mind. Have business Expo we're exhibiting at tomorrow and that's my baby plus know I'm having a lunch meeting with my boss this week. Not sure how much to vent to him. Know he's changing my job yet again to sales...or so co-worker told me. Not good at sales...not hired to be sales and I'm struggling with it. Whole time I've been there my job has changed and changed.

What I want to tell my boss keeps running through my head. Need to outline notes. Don't know how much to share with him or keep to myself.


Lovely Fall Day

Sunday, October 09, 2011

Played piano at church for both services. Hubby and I went to a couple of stores to pick up some things and took a long afternoon drive through the countryside. The trees are gorgeous and the colors are so bright. Reminds me of the beauty of God creation and how every season holds a surprise. Went to Houston Woods state park and walked around. The temperature was just right. What a gorgeous day to take a drive through the countryside. It calms and realaxes tme. The sermon helped to get me focus and attitude back on track.

What a wonderful day! Finally got home around 7:45 PM What a wonderful way to spend the day!


Woo Hoo!

Weighed in this AM and have seen weight loss. Been working on it with this Fall Challenge. Last week didn't show anything...feel like I'm loosing so much have been holding water weight or something.

Was finally able to walk during lunch time. The trees are gorgeous. Beautiful oranges and yellows and reds. Just gorgeous. Felt so good to be out walking and being outside during the beautiful fall.

Ended up working 1 1/2 hour over last night as we got so busy at the end of the day.

Off to make it a great weekend! Wanting to make some Apple crisp...mmmm

    I LOVE days like the one you describe. Full of small victories. I like the fact that you are concentrating on all the good things in you life. Often we are so fixated on the flashy things that we miss all the savory blessings that we are offered hourly. Thank you for sharing.

Friday Struggle

Friday, October 07, 2011

Been a crazy week...working over some and then gone every night of the week. Feel worn out and hubby wants me to go to parades tonight and two tomorrow. The pace is wearing me down. He's obsessed with being in everyone.

Work has been a struggle and more to come. Co-worker had meeting lunch with boss and it's my turn next week. He's going to be changing what I do more to sales, sales, sales. Not what I'm good at, not what I'm comfortable at. I grumble, gripe and grown about work more and more with many tears. Is it me that needs to change? When I interviewed we discussed I wasn't a sales person. I am administrative and want to help a business thrive and grow. That is what I am good's how I'm wired. I like to create an environment where everyone can be successful. I don't need to be in the limelight. I like to see people excel and celebrate their victories. I like motivating others to soar with the eagles.

Life seems such a struggle right now. Feel like I'm trying to keep too many plates spinning and not good at any of them. On overload. Exercise helps reduces stress. I pray for wisdom and guidance.

Maybe I obsess and make too much out of it. Do my job and go home. Seems like it's affecting all of me. Something has to change...maybe me.

    By Friday, I'm always a mess about work, so I have been learning to just not make any big decisions or decrees on Friday. By Monday, I have a better attitude :-)

I agree with Donna, sit down with your boss and make sure your points are heard. One thing that helps me in this kind of a situation is to write down what I think my boss would say and what I would respond with, sort of role-playing so that I have thought through my answers and my talking points and I am less nervous during the actual conversation.

Good luck!

    So sorry you're feel so overwhelmed...I have been feeling that way myself a bit lately.

Try hard to diffuse & let of some of that what you can...keep an open mind (MUCH easier said then done, but these are the mantras I TRY to use myself).

I hope you feel some relief soon! emoticon

    Change is so very hard especially if it takes us out of our comfort zone. Perhaps the boss sees something in you that you don't. Being chosen for a job change may be exciting if you can embrace it, but I know how hard that is as many of my job duties have also changed over the past year.

Make the best of it. Go into your meeting with an open mind. Share with your boss your expectations and how you were hired in. Sometimes all it takes is that reminder about your job duties at date-of-hire. Some of mine didn't change for that exact reason, but others did. Now that I am doing them, it wasn't as bad as I had perceived it would be.

Good luck and have a great wknd. Perhaps you can take a chair and sit down at those parades to give yourself a more relaxed feeling.

Hugs.. Donna

Adventurous Wednesday

Wednesday, October 05, 2011

Yesterday was challenging day! Co-worker was getting her computer going. Boss was in. Seems like he causes turmoil. Co-worker had had a rough start to her morning at home and came in near tears and boss was on her. For some reason he thinks the way to motivate her is to bully her to sell more. When he leaves for an appointment then I boost her back up or talk with her and listen to her to get her back going. She was frustrated with her computer not working and now it is different looking...had to use mine to work on some etc. We didn't get time for lunch....thankfully I had packed and ate while I worked. When our boss leaves it's like the storm blows away and we can handle things. Think the day would have been calmer if he hadn't been there.

Boss kinda jumped me. Not sure where I stand. Think I need to move on...part of me doesn't want to give up and walk aren't easy to find today. Maybe I'm too sensitive. Maybe I just need to work and do my best and not analyze everything and worry about everything.

Off to make it a great day. Hope to get in two workouts today.

Scale was crazy this AM Guess I need to invest in a new one. Numbers were fluctuating every time I got on it. Liked all the numbers I saw...but knew they weren't accurate.

  I hear you, jobs are hard to find, but you don't want to be stressed out every day either. Keep your chin up. On the scale issue, I had the same thing happen and after I changed the batteries it went away. Just a thought. Have a good day.
