Jenni and Seth came up to visit and we went to the fair three times, We also went to Hamlin Lk to swim and play in the sand and later went to Hoags lake and rowed the boat around. Seth enjoyed the cows, pigs, horses, chickens, sheep and rabbits at the fair. He also enjoyed sleeping to the camper and helping papa row the boat. We had a great time and we are tired now. Good Night... Sun, 31 Jul 2011 17:24:16 EST Stress Journal 6-10-11 So it's Friday! My stress always goes down on the weekends. I have an awesome husband and a quiet, peaceful home to rest in. All our kids are grown and have families of their own now. It can get boring or lonely sometimes but it is peaceful. Today at work, I managed to get much done. I only had a small portion of work that I needed to leave for next week. The person I'm training to take my old job is starting to catch on, which gives me hope that I won't have to keep up on two jobs for... Fri, 10 Jun 2011 19:49:24 EST Stress Journal 6-9-11 Last two days have been very stressful. Out of control, couldn't keep up with the demands of work; I know all this is work related. I spend my first couple hours after work just getting back to peace. Today, I was catching up and organizing my piles at work, which helped me leave work feeling like something was accomplished. I am reading Stress-proof your life by Elisabeth Wilson, but I have not tried any of the ideas that are provided in the book. I know I'll have to re-read it. Thu, 9 Jun 2011 18:17:48 EST Stress Journal 6-6-11 So today I feel like a revolving door, spinning around and not getting anywhere. To fix issues for so many people, some with the attitude that they don't appreciate or care how much work I have. I feel like a puppet, no one paying attention to how hard I'm working, just more demands for me to do more work or fix someone else's mistake "because thats your job". Grrrrr... I have a headache and I'm pretty sure from what. I am not very happy that my day was a waste. I wish I could start i... Mon, 6 Jun 2011 17:17:18 EST Stress Journal 6-3-11 So today was pretty smooth at work today. I was in control of my work flow most of the day and got many items done that have been nagging at me due to limited time. Got some training done, followed up on some issues that I've had no time. Didn't have to work "other hat" today. I feel like I accomplished so stuff today not as much as I had hoped but enough to feel content. I didn't feel rushed or pulled in a thousand directions which usually stress' me out. <em>41</em> Fri, 3 Jun 2011 21:16:27 EST
