Going swimming 3 times a week means being organized....

Wednesday, October 08, 2008

So I got to the gym on Sunday, went to the locker room and opened my bag and my swim suit was not there. Ran out of time to swim... on Monday, I got to the gym and realized my purse was missing!!! Searched all over my car and called home and hubby couldn't find it. Got too worried to swim and when I got home (with a tension neckache and headache) there was my purse in plain sight (thank goodness), but I was too stressed out to drive back to the gym to swim (it is about 7 miles from my house). So I went to bed early and did get rested up. So on Tuesday, I went home after work and had a light dinner and drove to the gym. I went to an hour long water aerobics class and swam another 15 minutes after class.

I decided perhaps being unorganized goes along with being out of shape and overweight and am working on that starting yesterday.

    My sister Jean has started water aerobics. I bet it's fun! And we're more apt to stick with something that's fun!Good luck with your new organizational skills!

    I can identify with that...our life has been disorganized in the past few years...and my new way of doing things....does require a little better organization. Good for you getting the swimming done.

Big layoff at work last week....

Monday, October 06, 2008

Thank goodness I was not laid off. I have only been on my new job almost a month and there was a layoff of about 10% of my department. Hopefully, there won't be any more layoffs until next year at the soonest. It is a little nerve wracking since I am the newest hire in the department. It makes one feel a little queasy and worried. I am trying to do the best job I can and hopefully that will be good enough to keep me employed.

I know going swimming and whirlpooling this evening will make me feel so much better. I'd better quit blogging and get going now. Good evening. My plan is to go swim at least three times a week. Today is day one of this week. emoticon

    I'm so glad you have not bee laid off and I can see where that would be nerve wracking. Swimming three times a week sounds wonderful. You go girl!

Star-bellied sneeches....

Wednesday, September 24, 2008

Star on, star off. That's what my new job reminds me of. I have been pulling out staples and restapling. Then in the same pieces of paper I have to remove them again. Put them through the scanner and they are shipped off to a storage facility for 7 years. Who said computers would make a paperless medical record? I think these computers are not work savers but instead are making slaves of us all. However, I am a paid slave and it is a very pleasant office envronment. We even have a nice break room (last job didn't have a breakroom). I still like my job and thank goodness I have other mundane tasks and some not so mundane tasks that I am being trained to do. Oh, yes, we don't have to work holidays and weekends ever (last job we did) and we get free coffee and tea. Wow!!!!!

    Sounds good...I remember when I was working in the schools...an electric stapler was much appreciated....so a staple puller that didn't cause pain would be great too.

Thanks for adding me as a friend. emoticon emoticon

Second week on new job---going great!!!!

Monday, September 15, 2008

emoticon I can do it, I have a job that I actually look forward to going to when I wake up. Must remember some ibuprofen and ice packs for sore hands in case I need those. This week will focus on walking and swimming at the gym a minimum of three times. Blamed starting new job for being lazy and losing interest in most everything.

Found fat-handled stapler puller on line and have ordered 2 different models.

It is going to be another wonderful week, for sure!!! emoticon
