Even Though....

Friday, August 31, 2012

Hey Sparkfam! Just blogging to say that even though it's Friday & you get to let your hair down, don't let it down too much. lol Make sure you get an hour of workout & trade some of the junk for fruits & veggies...I am trying to get an hour of cardio in the a.m. Then to pick up my nice at the bus station. From there we will come back & I will make breakfast. Then hang out & then my daughter & grandson will swing by & pick up my nice. She is moving here from Michigan but I don't think it will last long though?? She has a son still in Michigan so I don't know she is going to be able to be without him but I think if she finds anything here & gets a leg up she will send for him. I pray so. He is living with his dad right now until they sort it all out. Then I got an art show to slide to & then maybe then I can get to catch a movie or something...So I don't plan on messing up any progress tomorrow or Sunday but come Monday....YIKES! Don't let the holidays get you...

What a week it has been! I need to fly away somewhere just wrap my head around all that has transpired between 7 whole days. Last Friday, I was told to shut down my computer & leave the premises. Then the manager (who should never be in a capacity to speak to people) told me we have a mandatory meeting on Monday. Huh? Well of course, I was like what the world is going on? I had a nervous stomach but I hugged her cause she needed one, then told her it's been a BLAST really & then left the building. I called hubs on the phone & got into even more drama. So I got off cause I just need to meditate and know that no matter what everything would be alright. So I whispered a few prayers and then my whole mood changed. I just knew if they let me go, that would be fine too. I have been considering doing something different for a long time. So hopefully in the next month or so, I will also be changing my profession. I tell you I didn't really talk to anyone about it cause I didn't want people to make me go back to being nervous. My daughter helped me feel better also. I got home & then the next morning, I was as sick as a dog with a cold! UGH!! Then I went to church had a good time & spent time with family at a bbq. It was raining cats & dogs here in Chicago! I got soaked & wet going in but drenched trying to go home. Sick plus getting wet doesn't equal getting better. lol Then, went to work for the mandatory meeting, I pack light. I found out that a co-worker was let go. Not only was he let go but because he was the Information Tech he had to escorted out of the building & told not to return until they notified him or 10weeks. WHAT??!! This guy had given them 9years & now they treated him like a complete criminal. I was so heartbroken because he did so much at the company & we don't have an clue all that he did. The board tried to make it seem like this outside company would be able to take over & do it with ease. Well guess what? We at odds with management because they don't want us to call him but I still text him for passwords & how to information. I don't discuss the company but I do tell him we miss & love him. I know I a bit emotional but he came by to see the attorneys in our building & he couldn't come so the attorney down the hall brought the paper work. I got to hug him & tell him we are in the dark about everything. After 5 days of trying to let this outside company take over what he did like they knew magic, they finally put a call in to him. I hope he makes them sweat! lbvs (laughing but very serious!) Ohhhhh, now I exhaled! It feels so good to get this off my chest.

I am about to watch a movie, either Girl with the Dragon Tattoo or Hunger Games. Who has seen either of these? Well by the time you respond I will be well into the middle of the

God bless & thanks for dropping by!!

    WOW! What a cliffhanger! I'm so glad you didn't lose your job, so glad you found ways to keep yourself calm, and so sorry to hear about your colleague. I love the instant karma of the company having to call and ask for his help!

    Although you wrote this last week, I hope you have a GREAT weekend THIS week.

    That's The Reason I Will Never Work For Someone Else. These Company's Have Times When They Forget About Human Compassion and Run All Over People...Especially The Ones The Really Need. Yes...-He Should Re-bargain With Them. Plus If They Are Bringing Him Back They Should Send A Public Apology for Their Mistake. Just My Opinion. Dee...You Could Have Emailed Me To Pray for You. I Don't Like You Having To Be Nervous and Concerned. Yes...You Did The Right Thing With Going To God In Prayer and The Word. And You Never Have To Tell Me The Reason For Prayer. I Know How To Pray Where God Knows What's Going On. emoticon Ok?
    I Haven't Seen Either One Of Those Movies and I Hope You Report On Those Movies. My Son Has Netflix For Us Now and I Don't Watch Too Many Movies. I Think I'm Very Picky. I've Been Watching This Family Channel Show About Teenagers Although It's Filled With Adults But I Always Liked Watching It But I'm Thinking Now All It Seems To Be About Is Sex and I Know Teens Are Having Sex, It's Not In Their Minds 24/7. emoticon Family Channel lol.
    Have A Great Sunday and Monday!
    Blessings and Love!

    Wow, that had to be nerve wracking thinking you were getting canned. Your IT coworkers situation sounds just like what happened to my hubby. They escorted him out with security too, and we think it had something to do with the fact that he was at the top of his salary range and they didn't want to give him another raise, or couldn't anyway. I know he is a hard worker and always treated people well. He didn't deserve it. At the time we had 4 teenagers and he ended up without a job for 2 years. We lost our house and filed bankruptcy. I hope he does well and finds work quickly. God worked it all out for us and within 3 years of going bankrupt, we were back on our feet with a new house being built.

    Is your job secure now?
