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!

We got our snow!

Friday, January 20, 2012

Snowed most of the day yesterday off and on. We got a nice amount so far. Guess we've been due it.

Hubby drove me to Praise Team Practise. We have a tough piece I need to play. Not sure I will get it learned by Sunday but will give it my best.

Right knee bothering me some this AM.

Just two of us at work this today.

Really looking forward to time away with BFF's in February. Just got back from trip in December and already need another time off. Not sure how I'm gonna last with only one week left....this year.

Hubby commented that he thinks the stress of everything is weighing me job, Mom, my brother, hubby out of work. I try not to dwell on it but guess maybe it sits on my shoulders anyway.

Positive Attitude is my motto for this year. No matter what happens to us or around us -- we choose how we react to it. God is my constant companion. I know I need to look at things from His perspective and not mine. I've ask Him to mold me and shape me and He is.

Off to exercise and make it a great day!

    It's easy to say, but so hard to do especially when things get rough.
Hope you are enjoying the snow. . .

Went to Zumba last night

Thursday, January 19, 2012

Co-worker and I went to Zumba with co-worker from another office. Was able to get through the set but really feeling it in my knees this AM. I had a great time but there isn't time for it in my life at this point. Taking Mom to Curves is more important and getting that type of workouts for both of us is good. But enjoyed the change of pace.

If I had gotten in Line Dancing class would have really racked up exercise points this week...oh well.

Boss scheduled our reviews. Mine is next Tuesday. Wonder what he will say???

Off to make it a great day!

    I love Zumba. I just got a pair of Zumba shoes and they are much easier on the knees. I used to have twinges from all the twisting. I hope your review goes well.

  I did Curves for a while but eventually a lot of them closed. Zumba does seem to be the "hot" thing right now but I haven't tried it. Good luck finding something that suits you.
