"Is the state of endurance under difficult circumstances, which can mean persevering in the face of delay or provocation without acting on annoyance/anger in a negative way; or exhibiting forbearance when under strain, especially when faced with longer-term difficulties. Patience is the level of endurance one can take before negativity."

And boy did I need a boatload of patience today! When you work with someone, who's suppose to be a lead, and they just tend to blow you off...you need patience to deal with it. I'm not stupid...I do know how to my job..but when doing something NEW, I do need instructions...guidance...help to get the job done right. Not a vague "oh yeah..just do this" once in a while. emoticon So now..something I was suppose to do three months ago, but didn't know I was suppose to do, had to be done in a rush today. And even then...my lead wasn't the one to help me. Thank goodness for smart co-workers! I did say something to one of the mangers about it. so we'll see what happens. But I was all most in tears I was so angry about it. But after a couple of deeps breaths and getting help to get the job done (and next time I now know what to do!) I'm must calmer. emoticon

Eating over the weekend was hit and miss. Both Chuck and I felt a bit off this weekend. So we tended to eat light...but maybe a bit salty. Today eating, so far, has been good. No workout though. It's a short week and I'm dealing with setting up for the dept potluck tomorrow. I'm going to try and get a treadmill workout in tonight. emoticon

We had the old truck detailed Sat and my car washed. The guy came to the house to do it. My car was on;y $30 to do..the truck was $100. But he all but took a toothbrush to the truck! It's looking good! I think we're going to have the guy come once a month to wash my car and the new truck. emoticon

I picked up a little something for hubby for under the "tree" (we didn't put up a tree..but we did hang some Christmas tree smelling sticks up emoticon ). I'll have a gift from him under the tree. Something small..but he kept asking me what I wanted and I just didn't know. I finally told him I'd like the Nike Xbox workout. So guess what I'm getting? emoticon

He has surgery on Thursday morning (his knee), so I'm off work the 19th - the 25th. I'll be back to work on the 26th. I may be the only one here though! emoticon

So that's it for now...have a great rest of Monday!

    I will send a prayer Chuck's way on thursday! emoticon emoticon Patience
    isn't an easy thing to come by. Sometimes you just have to step back and count to 20!
    Then go on.(I did this when my kids were little. They would ask me what I was doing? I would tell them that I was taking a time out! It seemed to work.) Have a great day!

    I'll be thinking of Chuck on Thursday. Does he have a torn meniscus? Hugs, Calen~

    I like that cartoon. Patience is needed with my 4 year old. Not to immediatly get angry when he tests the limits.
