Magnificient Monday

Monday, August 19, 2013

Got off track with the back on track. Finally feeling more rested and not so bone weary tired.

Daughter made it back to Florida from their honeymoon in Punta Cana. Now she's a married lady! Happy for both of them.

We accomplished the wedding event. We housed people, fed people and cleaned up. Could not have done it without my best friend and daughter in law. They were awesome! When my brain froze...they kept the ball rolling.

Mom was OK...she got difficult at times but we got through it. Daughter helped her get dressed for wedding. I seem to get frustrated easily with her.

Think I finally got the house put back together and cleaned up...for the most part. Still have flower vases all around and those neat little gel beads that I'm drying back down.

We didn't get the yard all mulched...most of it...but we finished yesterday with another load of mulch on the truck. Things are ready for fall/winter. Keep hearing it may be a cold winter. Time will tell.

Still struggling with work. Was reading motivational books over the weekend and know I need to do something else. Life is too short! Boss really disappoints me. I used to have a business credit card and would buy supplies for work. It expired in May. Boss keeps saying he has one on order...but I take deposits to bank and know the girls. I asked once if he'd ordered one and they said "NO" as they can check the system. He told me last week he had reamed them out and one was on the way. So I went in and asked...and No he hasn't ordered one. Really discourages me...he could just say he'll get around to it...he doesn't have to lie about it. So I use my credit card to buy supplies and then he reimburses me. My last boss was a stickler about integrity and it greatly disappoints me this boss lacks integrity over something small he shouldn't have to lie about. Makes you wonder what big things he is lacking integrity over!!!!! Reinforces my need to look at other options. Co-worker reminded me that people of this world will disappoint us....yet I loose respect when I see his lack of integrity.

Found a beautiful picture by Thomas Kincaid at a consignment shop and kept waiting on it and it sold! One of my bucket lists was to have one of his pictures....just not the right one...or I need to learn to take the opportunity when I see it.

Off to making it a great day.

    Your boss seems like he doesn't has your best interests in mind. Glad the wedding went well and that things are getting back to normal! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I think you need not to use your credit card to get need a work on...using yours sets you up for the boss to decide he is not going to reimburse you...then what.....
    I think you need not to buy the supplies unless he is paying directly....

    Happy Monday morning Kathleen. So glad you are finally winding down that should help your stress level some. As far as the job. If you aren't happy. Start looking again. Perhaps something more suitable is open now where it wasn't before. I understand about the lying part. I can take a lot of things, but I soon learn to lose faith in those that lie. Especially more than once. Can you offer to do it for him (re: the card)?

    Have a wonderful day my friend. Keep you chin up... Donna
