I got through a challenging day yesterday

Thursday, November 03, 2011

Went to work early as have been having trouble with computer getting running. By noon I still wasn't able to log on...so boss told me to call and order a computer. Was able to pick it up and they moved my info to new computer and I was up and running by 3:30. Was getting frustrated that morning and told myself just stay calm..so we spend a day working on the computer. It worked out and got up all up by myself. Need to go back in and arrange my cables etc...but got it gong by myself and our helpdesk. So proud of myself. My boss has little patience getting things up and running and he was at our other office so am proud of myself for getting it all up and running by myself without involving him!

Slowly getting office together. Don't like all the chaos while I get settled into my new office...but I'm getting there. Will go some evening and hubby will help get things cabled right...but haven't had any evening time to do that and this weekend doesn't look good either...busy busy.

Son called and he has a kidney stone. He spent most of yesterday in ER. It is loose so has to strain urine to try and catch it. Now he and Grandma have something in common...except she had to have her's surgically removed.

Getting massage Saturday with co-worker...for her BD. So looking forward to it. Waking up with headache each morning...gotta get a new pillow. Always wonder why I wait so long before getting a massage. It makes me feel so much better. Working with computers always makes my neck and shoulders stiff and sore after awhile.

Off to make it a great day!

  


Wacky Wednesday

Wednesday, November 02, 2011

Got through all the exercising yesterday. Was feeling tired when I went to line dancing classes. Let me tell you I really sweated! Feel frustrated at times because the steps don't come easy to me. I have two left feet. Feeling a little tired today...stayed up and spent some time with hubby.

Yesterday went well at work. Got our offices moved and we all went to lunch together. That co-worker will be back before Thanksgiving.

Off to make it a great day!

  


Terrific Tuesday

Tuesday, November 01, 2011

Had a wonderful evening with son and daughter in law's party. She made chicken and dumplings, walking tacos and they had made homemade doughnuts...yum! Her grandmother has taught her to cook well. No one goes hungry. Mom really enjoys going. It's a change of pace for her. She laughs a lot and enjoys herself. We always have the game...oh I can't eat that...and then does. She even ate 2 blueberry muffins and she NEVER eats blueberry muffins...but they looked good to her. It does my heart good to see how she enjoys the family time. She fits in well. She likes the teasing.

Co-worker is coming in today to move her office to my office. Boss first said just move her stuff...I remember how I felt and suggested he ask her what she wants to do...of course she wants to come and move her things. Boss is letting us 3 go to lunch while he mans the office. He can be so nice and understanding and other times,,,,Last week I was so upset and this week things are ok. Not sure if it's me that struggles with change or what....

Other co-worker and I are going for massages Saturday for her birthday. Not sure why I put off going once in awhile. My neck and shoulders are really feeling stressed and tight and getting headaches. Afterwards I'm good for a couple of months.

Going to exercise this AM, Curves with Mom after work and then line dancing classes tonight!

Off to make it a great day!

  


Monday Good Attitude

Monday, October 31, 2011

Struggled with sleep last night. Woke at 2 am next to Chuck the chainsaw...as hubby has woke me up the last couple of nights really snoring.

I am a scale-aholic and liked what the scale showed this AM but due to being upset recently haven't been eating too much,,,which will come back when I get myself calmed down. Feeling better today about it all.

Heading to visit our son and daughter in law about an hour away tonight after work. Mom really enjoys daughter in laws grandma and the whole family atmosphere. She has been needing to get out and a change of scenery.

We have tickets purchased to fly to Florida with Mom for Christmas. The change of scenery will do her good. She hasn't seen my daughter's new place and we will have a good time. Will be gone for 10 days so that will give me a break from work too!

Off to make it a good week. If the weather permits hope to walk at lunchtime.

  


Reflection

Sunday, October 30, 2011

Had an emotional weekend. Boss changing my job to sales. Our Debbie Downer co-worker (not her real name) who is off on maternity leave is only going to come back part time so he is putting me in her position and eliminating the job I did...for the most part. He admits I'm not a sales person yet he is putting me in that role. He basically said he really has not need for what I am good at in his organization at this time. Because I have such a good attitude and team player he wants to keep me on the team. He knows he's not going to keep me. Have had a lot to sort through. I will stick it out through the end of the year. Have known I need to move on for a long time...I'm not a quitter and I don't want to give up. I have worked myself up about it and fretted and stewed where I'm not eating much...that is something for me not to eat. It is just hard to walk away. From a business perspective he is doing what he needs to do...but it's not where I want to spend the rest of my days. I have been unhappy for a long time and instead of complain...I need to do something about it. Everyone including me is tired of hearing about my complaints.

It just isn't the right fit for me. There is something else I need to do...guess we will find out.

Feeling better but still pretty emotional. Hormones aren't helping any either. Feel like there are two people arguing it out inside of me. One says you have a good job just shut up and do your job the best you can. The other person says there is something you can excel in...you need to take a chance and change. Who knows in two months I may love it and wonder why I struggled so....

I think I feel good about setting a time to evaluate and head out. I think it eases my mind some. I have a direction to head and a plan of action. Beginning to feel more at peace about the whole situation. It is me...it is not the right place for me. It has been good for me but time to move on.

Came home this afternoon and took a nap. Woke up around 4:30 and felt I should call Mom and ask if she wanted to go for coffee. She did. Took her for a drive through countryside. That calms and relaxes her. Didn't want to eat dinner but went for coffee/hot chocolate. Doing for others always makes me feel better too! She is worried she is causing a lot of stress. She is but we will deal with it. Probably the combination of not being happy at work and so many things pulling at me and people wanting things from me...I'm worn out and weary. But feeling more at peace tonight.
