Got some Rest Feeling Better

Friday, January 27, 2012

Got some rest and yesterday was better. I know my waking up with power surges at night and then can't go back to sleep all combines to stress me out and makes me irritable.


Things have really improved with Debbie Downer co-worker. Always looking for her to revert...but for the most part we've only had one episode.

Wonder what the weekend will bring?

Off to make it a great day!

Rough Evening

Thursday, January 26, 2012

Maybe the lack of sleep the night before but had a down day. Events seemed to bring me down and it wasn't a difficult day. Went to bed early and read for awhile. Then when Hubby came to bed I was awake for awhile but was able to get back to sleep eventually. Hopefully today I'll be more rested and able to roll with things.

Seems like I'm having trouble this winter. I feel emotionally tired with work, Mom, my brother, hubby out of work. I'm usually the positive person and people still see me as positive. Just not feeling it this year and I know better than that. Hubby is a half empty glass person. I am so looking forward to our get away with BFF's and hubby's like it's two weeks and then you are back where you started it worth it. I still say YES! He says vacations aren't worth it to him...there is no rest and relaxation it's go! go! go! But to me it is a break...lots of laughter, memories and yes it will be a long year without as many days off. He says all those things and he'll be enjoying himself the most.

Know that a different job may not solve my issues. Maybe I'm changing inside and have to deal with the changes in life and that makes me emotional. My life has been turned upside down with me being the major bread winner and hubby at home. I know it's not where he thought he/we would be at this stage of our lives. It has been going on for the last 10 years off and on but this time it seems harder for him to get back into a job.

Takes me awhile to process thoughts. Hubby kinda lets it all dump out. I try to be quiet and think through things. I don't want to say things I will regret and things I might not be able to take back. The things he spills out tend to run over and over through my head.

So a rough evening last night! Determined to keep going and get through the rough spots. Trying to learn about myself and the stages I am going through and remember my value through Christ and not what I perceive others to think of me.

I am off to make it a great day! Learning as I go!

    Definitely time for a rest! The vacation is probably the best thing for both of you right now.

Job Review went was such a joke. It is hard for me to face my boss and tell him to his face I'm doing OK. Guess I'll go on and get my Life License. It can only help the resume. I wonder what he can tell. Does he really care or just need the job filled? A warm body sitting there?

Woke up at 3:30 with it weighing on my mind. Trying to be content where I am but just feeling in my gut I need to be somewhere else and not sure where or doing what.

Hubby is out of work and jobs are harder to find. Keep plugging and my attitude will change? Work is always changing....feel like he's keeping me where I am until co-worker decides to come back full time. Wish I could just work and go home but it weighs on me and is a heavy load on my shoulders. I feel my confidence ebbing.

Networking---yet he's taken me away from some of those business opportunities in the community.

Wait patiently for God's timing and doors to open? How do I let others know I'm available?

I have some flexibility now...just be content where I am?

Thoughts to ponder......

    Understand completely. God had me start investing in my co-workers. Praying for them and learning to wait on Him and be content. I can't say that is the answer for you, but know that I am praying for God to show you exactly His plan for you.

Job Review with Boss Today

Tuesday, January 24, 2012

Have Job Review with Boss today at lunch. Don't feel nervous just wish I felt like putting on my A Game. Have been OK...Debbie Downer had come back a different person...but yesterday her old personality peeked through. Been waiting to see it peek back and sure enough. Kinda put me in a bummer mood and I was quiet the rest of the day..

Maybe I'll look back and these will be times of growth.

Feeling discouraged about work. The drama and stress wears me down. Boss really doesn't want to hear about it as Debbie Downer started with him when he was new and they are close and she does no wrong so he won't listen if we try to let him know.

18 days and counting until our adventure. That is what I need to look forward to. Blow off some steam with BFF's. Probably won't want to come home after it all.

Off to make it a great day and get my A Game on.

    In class last night we were challenged to pray for those who irritate us.

  Best wishes to you in your job. The one big thing you can do is pray for your boss and for debbie downer. Only God can change people. If you keep a good attitude things will happen for the better.

    Good luck with the job eval. They can be daunting to say the least, but as you said, look at it through the eyes of growth and you will learn something in the long run. emoticon Donna

Just hibernated over the weekend. Stayed at home Saturday and got some things done around the house. Felt good to catch up on some things and just putter around. I seem to work best chipping away at reorganizing and cleaning things out rather that tackling a whole room or area.

Met up with son and daughter in law for dinner last night. It was good to spend some time with them

Busy week---as usual. Have work review on Tuesday with boss. Not worried about it.

Hoping to finalize place to stay on our February. Looking forward to blowing off some steam with our BFF's.

Off to make it a great day!
