So... I'm not sure where to start!
Lots of stuff has been happening. I got a call back today to go for a trial at the place I interviewed with yesterday. The trial is tomorrow.
I am pretty excited, a little nervous... full of wonder. A teensy bit tense. It has all happened so fast!
It's where I want to be, and I know I'm going to be devastated if I don't get it. Having said that, I feel increidbly confident. I think this job is *mine*!
I'm also in the process of starting an after school program at my girls' school. I am incredibly excited about that, as are they!
So, I joined the "Stress Busting" Challenge recently. And one of the goals is to write in a stress journal three times a week. I haven't done this at all yet. So this will be my fist attempt. I have noticed over the past two days that the things that really seem to stress me out the most are related to my kids. When I have to tell them the same thing over and over. When I ask them to do something and they don't do it. When we're running late for school. When they're whining. Oh dear god, the whining! I think that is the worst. It sets my nerves right on edge.
I have had the week off work so far, so I haven't had to deal with any of the rubbish going on there. So it's a bit hard for me to comment on where that stress comes from. Although I can take a huge stab and say that it's my manager, who does not pull his weight, and likes to blame other people for things not going to plan. I know I try really hard to meet the company goals, and often I don't. Often I simply run out of time, because I'm only one person, and I can't possibly do the work of two people by myself. I still try though. And I still get worked up that he won't do his share but will happily blame me for stuff not getting done.... phew... that was quite a rant... sorry. I guess I've been carrying that around for a while.
Otherwise life is pretty sweet at the moment. I have my lovely man, my lovely kids, beautiful friends, online and off, a good chance at a brilliant new job, a new business...
