Far short and greatly distracted

Thursday, July 19, 2012

Yesterday I managed to walk only .56 miles. I am very distracted right now with work, and it's affecting everything.

What it comes down to is I am sick of having to explain to yet another new boss that I am not an administrative assistant. I have nothing against admins, mind you. I just don't happen to be one. I am a 27 year career QA professional with a background in contract manufacturing for FDA and ISO registered companies. It's what I specialize in. 6 years ago I was recruited to the site I work at now when it was a different company for my skill set. Since the site was bought by a different company, I have had to keep proving myself and my skills over and over to each new boss I get.

This frustration just kept me off kilter today. I am angry at the way I am being treated. I am fed up. I want to cry...alot. I need to put this into something I can do that is positive for myself. Right now I want to clean the heck out of my duplex, but I am still at work and will be for at least another 2 hours. I am sure by the time I get home this feeling will pass and I will be just exhausted from it all.

I will keep endeavoring though to make this positive for myself.

    Praying for you that it eases at work..Maybe look up some of the sparkpeople exercises to do first thing when you get home...I found Bollywood dance fitness and am loving the low impact exercise it offers and find I can follow it easy enough..Also a long hot soak in the tub.. emoticon

    Almost sounds like the company NEEDS to recruit someone for the position if every boss has come in with expectations that someone will be there to do the admin work for them.
