Fantastic! I will look forward to hearing about your trip this summer! Now to get through the winter!

We have had snow all week. The entire town nearly shuts down, which is fine, nobody can really go anywhere anyhow. I, being at a new job, asked early December what snow protocol was. I was told, it's business as usual. So, all week I have shown up at my job, 5-10 minutes early, so I am ready when the business opens the doors. NOBODY else has been here. Many, not showing up at all, a handful showing up for partial days, and part time hours. Today, I am 10 minutes away from work, when the boss sends out a mass text saying he is cancelling the a.m. meeting, as staff keep calling in and saying they can't make it. Perfect, and I know I'm being catty, but, 15 minutes before the meeting is to begin???? REALLY??? How about when the first group text goes out, which it does EVERY MORNING, at 7 a.m. That would be a great time to make that kind of call. I'm frustrated. But, As we have Monday, off, our next meeting will be Wednesday, and I am prepared to bring up this issue at that meeting. And, given that I will have days before, my anger will have subsided, and I can address it as an adult. Whew. Rant over!

Have a great weekend!

Good Morning! Happy Monday! I had a very relaxing weekend. It was truly just what I needed. I read quite a bit, did some housework, chatted with friends...truly lovely. Sunday, the weather took a turn, and we got snow, ice, and crazy winds. My son in law drives snow plow, so he left for work at 3 in the afternoon Sunday, to head to Seattle to start plowing and salting/sanding. He was not home yet when I left for work this morning at 8. Long night! Just a handful of us at work this morning. Actually, one grounds crew, one funeral director, one family service counselor, and myself. The other two locations are also staffed very minimally. Depending on where one lives, reflects on how safe it is to travel in to work! Luckily, no funerals scheduled today, so that's a bonus!

The emergency shelters open tonight. So my daughter will be gone working at one of those tonight. It is so bitter cold with that wind! EEK. I'm blessed to be indoors with heat!

Okay, off to get some work going! Have a beautiful Monday!

Good morning all!

I hope you've had not a too rough a week and that your weekend will be a relaxing and enjoyable one.

My week wasn't without its bad experiences but overall I made it the best one I could under the circumstances.
Headed into the weekend, of course, I'll be catching up on everything, my chores, laundry and writing.
I'm already at it with laundry and scrubbing. Walt's going to be rearranging and organizing his office today with the change out of his new gaming computer and gadgets.
That's pretty much our day today.

What's everyone else got going on?

It'll come hon. I think you're right once your company has left you'll feel like doing for yourself again.

A better day today. She was concentrating on transcribing her recording from a meeting into the news. So she was preoccupied with the better part of the day! So without any interruptions or hinderances, I actually got far more accomplished. I can actually go into my weekend and enjoy it without crying myself to sleep.

Walt's brand new gaming computer arrived yesterday so he'll be busy setting that up while I get my Saturday cleaning and laundry caught up!

So tonight I'm going to have my dinner put away a few things that need doing and go crash with hubby!

Wow! Unbelievable! Well, I believe you...it's her actions that are just so unbelievable! How does she live with herself? I'm not sure how you get up the gumption to show up at your job each day. I don't think I would have it in me!? You have shown time and again how capable you are. What the heck is this ladies problem? Today is Friday...I hope she gets a flat tire on the way to work and can't make it in...for your sake. I'm truly sorry you are having to deal with all this!

Here is okay. We are a little slow right now, so I struggle with trying to find something to fill my day. I truly like to be busy. That's one of the reasons I came here, and even told them when interviewing that, I loved my current job, but there just wasn't enough to keep me busy. I need a busy day. So, he promised me, that they had a million projects going on, and future projects, and no way would I find myself lacking for something to do. Wulp, here I am...asking around to anybody who walks by if they need help, can I do something? Nope, they have nothing either. In fact, most of them are leaving early in the day, as they can't find anything to do. I can't really leave early, as I work at the front desk, and need to be the last one out the door. As well as I need the hours at work. I don't have much paid time off yet. It's a noticeable slow down, as they keep talking about how it will pick up. So there's that.

I still haven't gotten out of my mindset where I don't feel like doing much after work. I haven't walked, met up with my friends, etc, since before Christmas. I'm just not in the mood. I'm not sad, or mad, or anything...just don't feel like going out and doing stuff. My daughter and her boyfriend are still here for the next couple of weeks, so I'm hoping that once they are back to New York, I will feel like life is back to normal. I love having them here, but I can tell, they are kind of spinning their wheels here as well...just no routine for anybody. And the weather is cold. Which we are not used to. Well they are, but I'm not. We have had crazy wind, flooding rains, and now we are set for snow. Good grief...I like being spoiled with 50 and partially sunny most days.

Happy Friday! Chat soon!

Just another day I'd like to forget

I won't go into any great detail but to say I'm just so weary, so tired of the stress my employer puts me under on top of the pressure I'm already under to meet or surpass previous goals. I do it almost every week but it just never seems to be enough for her.
Every day I go into work with a mixed feeling of good expectations and dread of her scrutiny and criticisms.
She's always on me about making sales calls. FINALLY, I said to her. The reason you don't hear me on the phone making sales calls is that every time I do you're in the background telling me what to say and how to say it. you don't think the client doesn't hear that. They do and it makes me look incompetent.
Her reaction?
Then you'll just have to become competent, won't you.
I just turned and walked away.
Talk about blow your mind She just doesn't get it. It went right over her head!

Yeah and the RCMP actually called me last night to update me on the situation.

It's been a whirlwind morning! Up at the crack of dawn, animals all looked after, a load of laundry done, the house tidied and the garbage and recycling all taken out to go to the curb tonight.

Now I'm headed for the office to put a paper to bed and start selling ads for next week's paper!

TFN!

What an exciting drive! I'm glad you, him, and other drivers were all safe. It's hard when a person gets old, and they either don't realize how bad off they are, or it would be so life changing that they just go on doing what they do. Either option is not a good choice. Thankfully this story ended well for all involved.

Our New Years Day was relaxing. It's my youngest daughter's birthday, so we traditionally go out to breakfast with the family. (which we did). Then we hung out and played games. The kids all went to the movies. They saw Mr. Rogers. Which they enjoyed. I really want to see that one as well. But, I don't go to the movies, as I'm hearing impaired, and honestly the movie is so loud that I can't understand a word that is being said. I will wait for it to come out on DVD or Netflix.

Sunday was my oldest daughters birthday, so we ate cake, and bowled. I haven't bowled in years. I have one finger that hurts, and a couple of other odd muscles (as in my butt muscles) are a little sore. I must have been doing some fancy moves! emoticon

Have a lovely Monday! Chat soon!

A very different day yesterday.
On the way home from Red Deer last night after just leaving Stettler we encountered a driver that for all intents and purposes seemed impaired. He was all over the highway and his speeds ranged anywhere between 60 - 120 Kms! He almost hit the ditch numerous times. We were so nervous that he was going to hit an oncoming car!

So I put in the call to 911 and reported it giving them the make of the truck colour and license plate. I made at least three other calls with updates The last one let them know that he had pulled off the road and was behind the restaurant just off the highway.

We followed him and literally had to cut him off to make him stop. When he finally did my 6 ft, 4" friend, Leslie stepped out of the car and made a citizens arrest. The RCMP did show up and we gave her our full report and then we were allowed to leave.

Turns out the fella wasn't impaired but he was 81 years old and his eyesight is so poor He shouldn't be night driving!. So they are going to take his license from him send it in for review and possible lose it altogether. Poor fellow but it'll keep others on the road safer.

Good morning all,

Had me a busy New year's day but just at home. Didn't even make a special celebratory dinner. We had homemade pizza.

Then, of course, it was back to work for two days. I did get a lot accomplished for next week's paper.

today we're off to Red Deer for Walter's eye appointment amongst other things.

I, of course, have been up since 4 so that I have all of my Saturday laundry and cleaning done before I leave. Mission accomplished and a hot shower to boot.

Happy New Year Celebrations! emoticon It so does not feel like New Year's Eve today! First off, I'm at work. I'm not sure if we will be able to scoot out early or not. Either way I have a hair appointment at 5, so I'm kind of booked until then. You'd think that appointment was good timing...hair done, out for the night celebrating looking all good. But, no. I'm going out to the bay with my kids to light roadside flares around the bay at 7 pm. And it's rainy and windy! So the hair is going to be a mess no matter what happens! LOL! But the memories with the kids are going to be all worth it! When it's all done, it really is pretty...it's called "the ring of fire". And when you look around the bay, it is just lit up like a red ring. The only opening is where the bay meets Canada. It's a small segment, then picks up again on the US side to make kind of a 3/4 arch. Very cool for this small town! So, then we will run home, get warm, and play some board games! My kind of evening! Everybody be safe! See you in the new year!

emoticon ladies! It's going to be a GREAT start to a new year here!

My energy levels are just flying today! It'll just be Walt and I. but I'll still make our New Years' dinner and have our celebratory glass of wine. In the meantime, Walt has done the outdoor snow blowing and shovelling and I'm tackling the house with a vengeance and I do mean with a vengeance. I'm doing some serious nitty-gritty cleaning pitching tossing scrubbing every corner there is! My house is going to start out with great Karma for 2020 and stay that way.

Wow, that is old school! But hey, if it works, it works right?


Well, I HAD plans of sleeping in a little later, like say 6 am, but my Bagera apparently had other plans. So rather than go back to bed I stayed up and got a few things done before I take off to Red Deer today and get my glasses!
So, I need to slip out and fill the car up and grab a couple of things I forgot at the office when I left last night. That's pretty much going to be my day.

So, we shall see how the day goes and how late I get back. Bestie wants to go see the new Starwars matinee movie too.

So have a great day everyone! Stay on track, stay gold.

I am planning as well! I have a paper planner. I know old school style..but it works for me! I seem to not be lost without my phone ever...but lose my planner and life would be out of control! So, I'm planning my exercise right into my planner, and I track food through the weight watchers app, (although I have been over for a couple of weeks now...), and I have a fitbit that tracks my exercise and steps. Now with all those tools, one would think I have it made in the shade! Not so! I am still struggling. It's a mind game for me. I've got to wrap my mind around this entire thing! I'm getting there! Hope you had a fabulous time on your trip out of town! It makes me think of the theme song for Gilligan's Island...a two hour tour... emoticon

Well now, good morning!

I trust everyone had a lovely and exciting Christmas.

I've been very busy this morning setting myself up for success in 2020. Oh yes! Already on top of it. No procrastinating for this ole' gal!

I've put in all my updated information and started to actually use the food tracker, calorie counter and fitness tracker. If I have my calculations correct I've figured out calories in calories burned per week if my body co-operates I should lose 2-3 pounds a week!

I'm planning a trip home to Ontario at the end of July and I want a substantial amount of fat gone!

Anyway, it's now off to work for the day.

So, let's start setting ourselves up for success now and get geared for the ultimate weight loss year!

See you later!

I hope you are enjoying your day off today! I'm back at it! It was really hard to just have one day off in the middle of the week...I know whine, whine, whine...But really, it was! I'm happy to get back to routine actually. I have just been delving in to whatever is available to snack on at the present time. That habit is bordering on ridiculous and I'm ready to get back to life as normal! Chat soon!

Good Morning and Happy Christmas Eve! I likely won't be on line until Thursday, but wanted to pop in and wish you a happy holiday! We might get snow for Christmas! We haven't had any yet, but the prediction is for tomorrow. That would be kind of fun...picturesque even! Today we get off work at noon. I'm glad for that, as I have friends coming over for game night and ugly pajama night! Nobody gets in unless they are wearing their pj's. It's a pretty fun night! Just need to get home to get ready! Tomorrow we have Christmas breakfast, and send everybody on their merry little way! HO! HO! HO! Have a fabulous Christmas! Chat soon!

And here we are, Christmas Eve, tomorrow!

Glad you're on track!

Well, it's a working evening for me. So I'm going to have to beg off for tonight.

Other then that I am a-okay! This weekend was crammed with festivities with the winter solstice celebrations and Christmas festivities combined! I'm exhausted!

I managed it. I have EVERYTHING done, caught up. I slipped out this afternoon and finished up and got the last of the few things I would need.
Most of my day has been spent updating ev3rything for the new year now. It takes a lot of doing so I'll still be working on it the next couple of days.

it's been foggy all day. Not a thick fog but enough to create a mist on the cars.

I'm getting anxious because Walt's Christmas gift hasn't gotten here yet and I ordered it well in advance! I'm going to be very very disappointed if it doesn't get here by Tuesday!

I'm going to need to make dinner here shortly but wanted to pop in quickly.

Yeah, change in routine is always disrupting.

It'll be a typical day here for me. I managed to "sleep" until 6:45. Whoop! Now I've been up and have everything on the go, cleaning, laundry. So far three rooms are done and one load of laundry left. Right now I get to sit and enjoy a cup of Dandelion coffee and toasted garlic bread, tomato and Havarti cheese with jalapeno peppers. YUM!
Trying to accomplish it all between today and tomorrow so that I can actually totally relax for Christmas day and Boxing day.

Good Morning! I've been up since four this morning as I was at the shelter for wake up/hospitality. I usually am awake by four, but not out of the house. I like to have time to wake up by myself. It seems to be stressing my husband out with the kids home. I think it is shaking up his routine, as he is home all day, and usually has full run of the house to do his routine. Now with the kids there, he isn't able to do his usual stuff. I hope he can get around that. Not sure how to help there! Chat soon!

It'll be a typical day here for me. I managed to "sleep" until 4:45. An extra 3/4 of an hour Whoop! Now I've been up and have everything taken care of so I get to sit and enjoy a cup of Folgers and pop in to say good morning before I'm off again.

Anyone else with ideas for the upcoming year we're happy to hear them!

Thank you for sharing your Christmas miracle! Amazing! And, miracles do happen! WOOHOO! I wouldn't let your guard down either, but it's certainly a step in the right direction!

I did the same kind of thing this weekend. Cleaned the spare room entirely, washing the bedding, and getting it all ready for visitors starting tonight! Well, not actually visitors I guess...my daughter and her boyfriend. But, still I did get it cleaned entirely! I feel rather accomplished after an entirely too busy weekend! But gaads does it feel good to be done with so many projects! As I was sitting down in the living room last night, I noticed the top of the fridge however has been forgotten! I keep it empty usually and it was covered! There was the mixer and a waffle maker, and a stack of egg cartons on top of it! In fact, I was so tired, they are all still there! I will try to remember to put that stuff away when I get home! The egg cartons, I forgot to take to the farm when I picked up eggs. I swap out the containers with the "egg lady", empty for full and completely forgot last time. So those will have to stay, but the rest, there is a spot in the cupboard for both of those items!

Tonight we head to Seattle to pick up Cameo (daughter) and Malcolm (boyfriend). Super excited to see them both! However, it will make for a long night! Then I have 3 shifts at the women's shelter this week as well. This week is going to be a tough one sleep wise! Sunday night, we have our dinner theater. All six of us are going...I'm looking forward to that as well. I hope to get in some zzz's before we leave for that on Sunday, as I'll be just getting home from the shelter at 5:30 a.m. after being there all night...so hard to sleep during the day, but I'm gonna need it!

Okay, chat soon! Have a fabulous week! May the miracle at work continue throughout the week!

Oh my! It's been a day and so much more accomplished than I thought I would.

Some of what I got done I was actually going to leave and do over the Christmas break but I thought, na, let's see how much of it I can get done before then so I don't have to use my holiday to be cleaning, organizing etc.

So, today I managed to totally Spring clean the spare room, which included scrubbing beds, mattresses and flipping them. The rear entrance/laundry room got an overhaul. The laundry got done. There was extra because Walt brought home two bags of gloves and jackets he wanted to be washed. While that was going I reorganized my upper and lower cupboards in the kitchen, got all of my bulk shopping from Costco yesterday portioned and put away.

A whole lot less to do over the holidays! My back is throbbing with an ache, but not in pain like I used to be!
Oh, and one and a half blogs are written!

I believe in miracles! I do! I do!



I just found out today that yesterday while I was not at coffee break Boss B admitted something. Sad it had to come to what it did in order for that to happen but at least it's FINALLY happened.

The manager had decided she was going to take a vacation day last Friday. That entire day you could have heard a pin drop. Not one of us went to Boss B with or for anything.
I did all of my work quietly selling Christmas space. Consequently, we have 66 greetings thus far. 51 of them being mine and 15 being the other salespersons.

What that day did was OPEN her eyes. She FINALLY realized that her stress, she had been taking it out on her staff. Her treatment of us has done a complete 360.
None the less, I will not be letting my guard down. I will enjoy it and milk it for as long as it lasts.

Good morning,

A much better night's sleep. I'm thankful for that at least. Let's hope we have a good Friday at work now and it'll be good going into the weekend.

Reprieve! Boss B has to go to Regina for 3 days. Flying out Monday, Flying back Wednesday. Won't see her until Thursday! emoticon

Headed for Red Deer tomorrow now for Costco to put in my order for my glasses, and shopping. Just hoping the weather is nice for travelling.

What a boring little life huh? LOL

Ugh. Sorry to hear of your day and your restless sleep! I have been simply exhausted the last two weeks. I think the emotional draining at work during the day is taking a toll. As that seems to have cleared somewhat, my sleep patterns are a little better. (thankfully...) Now I have moved on to stressing over getting everything ready for my daughter and her BF to arrive. We pick them up in Seattle Monday night after I get off work. I seem to be wearing a worry hat lately! I'm not much of a list person, unless of course it's a grocery list. If I don't write down what I'm getting at the grocery store, I am sooooo lost! But, as of late, I have been making a list of the things I need to get done before Monday. I'll certainly be glad when that phase is over!

I hope you have a good day today. And maybe boss B could just leave you alone for once! A "Christmas Miracle" I will call it! My wish for you is a "Christmas Miracle". Chat soon!

Well, I wish I could say it was a good night's sleep. It was a rough one. I don't know. Puppies were restless and wanting out at least every hour. I finally got them settled by 1:00 and managed 5 hours of sleep with restless dreams.

The day yesterday wasn't so bad. Up until 3 o'clock coffee break that is. It was a very very good sales meeting via satellite between the three of us this morning. Boss B had to head out for a 1 o'clock county meeting. A 2 hr drive so she left by 11:oo She got there but turned around and came right back because her part of the agenda got cancelled. DAY RUINED. I was so relaxed up until that point.

So now she's was entering the insertion orders into the computer and came to mine.
SHE herself had initially helped me figure out the math for this client because it was a combination of year-end $ amounts and next year's new prices and they were booking every other week Dec 19 - Mar 26, 2020.
Fine, but these clients wanted to be billed separately by debiting their credit cards. No big deal. I sent the authorization forms to keep cards on file. Figured out their payments by thirds/biweekly Using HER Math and submitted it. She claimed it wasn't right. Oy Vey, I call "malarky"! And that's putting it politely!

What does she do? Make fun of me. yeah Like I'd want to go for a coffee break with her?! NOT So I stayed in my office working on batch e-mails for Christmas eve services to the different churches and quietly teared up. For which afterwards she figured out the math and had to apologize. No, Really?! DUH!

You nailed it, girl!

Mine is still a fight with an old ogre. She's so condescending. Oh, man! I feel like I'm so far behind. But I'm tired so I'm not going to stick around.
Its been a full day, so I'm going to crash. See you on the flip side.

Happy Monday Team! I'm looking forward to a good week mentally & physically. I have recommitted myself to eating healthy. I have got a plan for squeaking in some physical activity to break up the day as well. I hope all this will help, as last week was simply exhausting!

So, the problem was resolved at work last week. IT took the owner stepping in to say that I was correct, and the controller was in the wrong. She was asked to follow up with me via email, I'm sure, as she wouldn't have done it on her own, and the owner had already spoke to me and apologized for the nonsense that had happened. She (the controller), has been with the company for a long time, and does not like to be told what she will do. So, the hatred from her is being felt by myself. She is being a tad difficult to work with.

Most of the employees like her, and get a long with her. For me, she has had a small grudge since I started. It got back to me that when she found out what my starting wage was, she was angry right away. Apparently, without even knowing me, she decided that I wasn't worth the money. So this added on top of her grudge is not helping the matter. Most of my coworkers have obviously gotten the word that she is angry...there is a rather odd energy going around. I am going to just keep doing my job, keep a smile on my face, not discuss the matter with anybody, as in my book, it is resolved. No further discussion needed. Another reason I appreciate being able to come on here and vent, as nobody knows anybody where I work...so it's like an anonymous vent board! LOL!

Next week my daughter and her boyfriend come for Christmas. They will be here until January 23. I'm looking forward to it, but at the same time, it will be a full house for a rather long time! Wish me luck!

OK, a new morning, a new day. I, even after everything that happened yesterday managed a good night's sleep. So, now I sit here before you with a good hot cup of coffee ready to start my day. It should turn out alright. Boss B is in Camrose today, so out of office! Prewarrning This is going to be a LONG one!

You know, I had a beautiful day Wednesday being out of the office myself only to come home to a blindsiding e-mail from Boss B.

Management has been working on building a cohesive and effective sales team over the last year in an attempt to thwart the ongoing downturn in adv lineage.

In doing so, for eg., we developed the Newspaper 101: Weekly Team Meetings, etc.
(this pertains to me BUT out of context!)

Feedback seems to be that these meetings are considered “a waste of time”; or repetitive sales info and there is a noticeable lack of participation by members. Therefore we are going to cease and desist these meetings going forward unless management is encouraged to do so; or, if any ideas are forthcoming from employees on how to build COHESIVE SALES TEAMS.

What I HAD said was unless these meetings are more constructive with more of a teaching theme (for the other salesperson's benefit and some of my own because one can always use a refresher now and then) these meetings are basically repeating the same thing every week.

What does she surmise? They're a "waste of time"

Then there's this:

Innuendo and my observations seem to indicate there is an unhealthy relationship between staff. (eg.) jealousy, bullying. Management has also witnessed some of what she would consider bullying and it has also been indicated to her that it has also occurred outside her knowledge.

(Doesn't in any way pertain to me! At least not directly.)
I know the other salesperson has been jealous because one, looking at the production run from week to week my name is all over it including connected to some of her clients.clients that she was told I would be keeping because I had been working with them for years. Others would book with me and regardless her name goes beside them. However, I guess because they are booking with me rather than calling her... What she is ignorant of is that they prefer my personality and methods of dealing with them because I know what they need! My god, I've been doing this for 10 years!

And then she proceeded to lay down a numerous amount of changes that have to be made for the sales team. None of which I really have to change because I already do them. then I felt so sorry for Yvonne, demoting her as manager down to controller; Main accountant and firing then the present accountant. Way too many errors happening. And making herself queen bee. So now instead of going to Yvonne we have to go to her with issues outside of accounting. BA HA HA I never went to Yvonne for anything else besides accounting matters because I know my job! But to make it look good at least for one day I took a few things to her which meant interrupting the flow of her routine. I may keep it up for a while so that she finally realizes that she can't do everything! LOL And then I'll subtly go back to confabbing with Yvonne. Like Stupidity! And it's all because she feels left out, out of the loop. Her ego!

Like DOH the role of a manager is to lighten the main bosses load and if there is anything of detrimental importance that needs to be taken to the boss that's WHEN she is needed. Otherwise... She just doesn't get it! She's eventually, yet again, going to find that it's too much. That was the initial reason she promoted Yvonne to Manager in the first place!

Anyway, as to the bullying? She needs to look in the mirror!

Oh yes! yesterday just after I return from lunch she calls me to her desk, brings up an e-mail I'd sent out just that morning and berates me about my Christmas greeting I had included in my signature simply thanking my clients for their belief and faithfulness to the ECA Review. It was in Christmas red.

Oh yeah " I know you think a lot of yourself. That;'s all about you and nothing to do with getting the clients business. If you want to send out a thank you and wish them Merry Christmas do it in a separate batch e-mail and on your own time. Now get back to your desk and make sales like your suppose to. Our lineage is down and we have 2 weeks left before the end of the year and we need all the ads we can get to close out the year! BULLYING! BULLYING! BULLYING!
And she's not talking to me she's hollering at me!

So, I just looked at her, turned my back and without a word went back to my desk. Trust me her comeuppance is on the way! As you all know by now I don't stand for this kind of treatment. She knows it too! She never learns! If this is what she wants I can certainly dish it out!

Oh yeah! And then later that afternoon she comes to me about my day out to Castor for Christmas sales. I'd e-mailed my call list and the results of those calls. As requested; One of the changes in the memo. So, now she was coming to follow up and what does she do a complete 360 and complimented me. She was impressed with it all and the sales made. After she left my desk I just rolled my eyes and had a good chuckle! Like I swear she's dual personality!

Anyway, this girl is going into work today and do her job. Push myself as I always do and call it a week.

For me, after having a very productive great day out on the road I came home to find I'd been punched in the gut. Thank god for St John's Wart!

Man oh man It was as silent as a tomb at work today!
I won't get into it because it entails far too much right now. It envolved a memo that was in our inboxes yesterday. It was full of negative narcissistic judgements is all I'll say at this point. I'll expound more tomorrow Right now I'm mentally exhausted Going to go crash with the love of my life and watch Dirty Dancing.

OMG! I love the jacket! That is crazy cool!

Anxiety attacks for everybody! I had a full blown one last night! I got home, couldn't concentrate, wasn't hungry, was just uncomfortable and overwhelmed in my own home. I had this crazy feeling of needing to purge all my belongings. I decided to go to bed and let it rest until today. Today, I am feeling the same way. I need less things in my personal space. And I have a plan of re-arranging the living room area. I never re-arrange the furniture. So I know I'm feeling unsettled. But, I need to go with it to settle my mind and emotions. I practice the I-Ching for trying to handle my emotions and day to day interactions. It is helping, and today's was very telling in teaching me how to handle my day. I'm hoping for a calm day...quiet...and I will keep to myself as much as possible. I've for sure fallen in a hole, but am really trying to balance and reset. We've got this!

I know, I know exactly where you're coming from.

To help me with mine I went and bought some St. John's Wort today and took 2 tablets. One right away and another after lunch. They're 1000 ml each. It calmed me right down and kept me that way for the rest of the day. It felt good to be "normal" again.

I've realized something after yesterday's episode.

yeah, I had an out and out panic attack.

Years ago and I'm talking from early thirteen to adult I used to get these very sharp pains behind my ribs. The doctors could never diagnose its cause and would simply give me 10 ccs of Valium to calm it down so that I could sleep at night.
Guess what's back. Yep now I know what their diagnoses should have been. High stress and anxiety

So now I know how to deal with it. I have an ancient herb on its way. Havasu Nutrition Ashwagandha Capsules 3000 mg (per serving) Extra Strength - Adaptogen for Stress Relief & Anti-Anxiety Control; 90 Capsules Should be here by the end of the week And that's exactly what it's for. To help control anger, anxiety and agitation.

In the meantime, until it gets here I'll take St John's Wort when I have to go into the office and she's going to be there.

Here's the jacket I ordered Walt. It shipped today!

Ugh. I am having a day! Work is finding that nasty, deceitful, vibe, and is flowing with it. That makes me sad, as I was really hoping that this was not that kind of work place! I'm really just trying to be quiet about the entire thing, so as to not spread my harsh feelings about what is going on. I actually sent out a couple of resume's just out of anger towards this place. I'm hoping I'm just being reactionary and will be feeling better about the entire thing tomorrow. I did not send out resume's to competitors...one saving factor....that anger emotion is really getting the better of me today.....

I am so sorry for your loss! That is just tragic. The entire story! Alzheimer’s is such a sad journey. True your family will not have to travel that path with her, but still the pain of the loss is felt by all. Grief is such a personal thing. Everybody grieves differently… some needing to talk it out, others needing to just grasp it in their own mind. Sounds to me like you took the time you needed to reason it all out and are accepting what has happened. Sad as it is…
I really am sorry for you and your family’s loss.
This Christmas gift for hubby sounds amazing! I will be interested to hear how he reacts when he opens this particular gift! It’s just crazy what can be found on the internet! I am doing pretty good with the Christmas shopping. I am really down to just stocking stuffers. I have some, but need to grab a couple of coffee cards, and socks. Socks are a tradition, I’m not sure why, but they are most expected! LOL!
Seriously, your boss needs to take a step back! What the heck is wrong with her? She sounds like she doesn’t have enough to do, so she just nit pic’s until she has disrupted the entire flow, and then, she has something to do, as she has caused a huge explosion that she must now clean up! I am always stunned with your updates. I can’t imagine working with her…I would be insanely on edge on a daily basis!
Happy Monday! I hope this week goes by quickly for you!

And yesterday was a very, very hard day for me. I was awakened at 4:30 am with my cell phone rapidly going off with messages from my sisters.
My Aunt Fern, mom's younger sister and yet again, nobody told me, had been diagnosed with early Alzheimer and now I was being told that she had fallen and was in the hospital with a brain bleed and not expected to live.

I went completely numb. My emotions were non-existent. They froze, literally.
Then the anger set in and it was all downhill from there. I was so, so angry I couldn't see straight for the tears. And everything anybody said or did I exploded at them. That's all my sisters talked about. Finally, I said, Sorry but yes it's heartbreaking, but there is nothing we can do except give Uncle Jack emotional support and leave the rest in god's hands. I have done that now.

It finally all calmed down and I was able to deal with it, and continue with what I had to get done and taken care of in my own world. I couldn't deal with their conversations all day long.

This morning there was a message that she had passed away quietly in her sleep at 8:55 pm. And you know my heart is content. I know she is now with mom, Aunt Dawn, Aunt Nell, Uncle Jack, and Uncle Doug. and in a far better place. She won't have to go through the stages of Alzheimer and neither will family. They've been spared of that.

And on a much happy note, I now have my Christmas shopping done. I ordered hubby's this morning. It's supposed to be here by Dec 11.
In high school, he wore a doeskin fringed jacket. I found one! So it's a nostalgic gift this year. I can't wait to see his face when he opens it!

OK, I'm out of here for now. Catch ya on the flip. Stay gold.

Well, to be honest, I was very anxious and most certainly dreading this day. Especially after yesterday's sheer stupidity!

I had gone out just around town in promotion of this year's Christmas greetings and had taken a prewritten list of the businesses I wanted to go to. I filled it in with the responses from each one, handed it in and she blew a gasket. Not to me but to my manager. It was too neet She figured I had completely redone it and tidied up. LIKE SO WHAT IF I HAD! I hadn't of course because I had had the list on a clipboard so that I had a surface to write on. She figured it should look like scribblings!
See what I'm dealing with? But thankfully it was my manger coming to me with this but even she was not her usual self. She had an unfamiliar attitude.
So after the boss lady left for the day I said to her OK what really went down while I was at lunch?
That's when she told me all of this. And had even added businesses to the list that she figured I'd missed.

I hadn't missed them! They'd already been approached and given me their response I didn't need them on the list! If she'd went to the smart sheet and checked their file she would have known this! Like sheer stupidity and talk about petty! Seriously!
I lost it! My reaction?
I am "this close, this close to walking out that door and not coming back! Oh, yeah I exploded! And I mean exploded!

So today manager is off to Regina leaving me with Boss B. She did very well to keep her lip zipped Actually she handled me with kid gloves. Tiptoeing very carefully around me, asking advice on different things. Yeah almost a complete 360

So yeah I had a most excellent day to close out the week! I'll get her "trained" yet. (Maniacal laugh)

Not a bad day I was out in that cold this afternoon going door to door to the businesses in Coronation for Christmas. So out of the office for at least 2 hours. I was glad to get back into the warmth!
Threw the bedding into the washing machine this morning. I have it drying now. In the middle of making supper. So better not burn it LOL

It's been a busy morning this morning!
Very rested, up at 4:15, a load of laundry washed and in the dryer, kitchen and dishes are done from the night before. Yeah, I kind of left them and decided to totally relax after supper.
The blog is written and will post later today for your motivational and insight. It needs editing and tweaking.
So, now I'm going to take a look at this week's paper layout crossing muy fingers she's laid it out as a 16 pager!

Happy to report the work drama has settled down. She let sleeping dogs lie and left with nothing more than an "I'll see ya tomorrow."

I know the stress of being out on a limb with job security. Boss here keeps threatening to close us down not enough to make payroll this month and bam, checks pour in and she has almost 40,000 in her account.
So don't tell me she's hurting.

So sorry to hear about hubby's spill I hope he gets the relief treatment he needs ASAP

WOW! Craziness at your workplace, still....GAADS! Sorry to hear about all that! We've had such an uproar, with a crazy amount of turnover here in the last 2 months, that I am feeling really uncomfortable. Everybody keeps on reassuring us (the team) and me (as an individual), that I am safe, I have nothing to worry about, etc. But neither did the last person who just left on Friday?! I am trying to not focus on that, but damn it's hard. And the vibe in the office is STRESS! So...I'm just sitting quietly at my desk, and trying not to engage with anybody unless necessary. I'm not sure how to act!

My husband took a spill on his motorcycle a week and half ago. He wouldn't go to the doctor, until finally last week, he gave in and we went to urgent care. He had an MRI. Still waiting for the results, but the Dr. thinks he might have fractured his hip. So, that is stressful. And in the meantime, said Husband, is in extreme pain, and can't sleep, walk, sit, stand, etc...just constant pain.

Sorry to unload all that. Your work sounds horrible! I really wish you could get out of there! What a NIGHTMARE!

OK, it's Monday and I've had the weekend to recoup from last week's fiasco. Let's hope Boss lady let's sleeping dogs lie. Between myself and my manager who actually KNOWS how to approach situations that need addressing, resolved the issues with me and it actually had nothing to do with the issues I initially thought them to be! It had nothing to do with my work itself per-say.

Stupidity none the less. I guess they were on the hunt for an e-mail from a client so that they could resolve that issue and in my absence went onto my computer to find it and of course, when they booted it up, Facebook automatically opened as I have it set up to do. I have it there to check on people that could run possible ads in the paper and combined social media with print. She KNOWS that but oh no, her memory... So instead of bringing it up as a corrective issue; I'm socializing on her time & dime, she just said make sure you have it closed down before you leave at night. Take it out of the history archives if you have to.
Yeah, my manager is on my side.

The other issue was a promotional e-mail I had sent out. Too many attachments apparently. DOH! It got her the sponsors and increased them. Like I said Stupidity.
And lastly, I apparently owed my co-worker an apology?! Say what?! For doing my job, what I was asked to do?! Again Stupidy but to make my co-worker feel better I "apologized"

I started it out with I'm sorry for the way Saturday went. After doing what I had been told to do, set up your e-mail folders the same as what mine was so that you didn't have to work off of the server anymore and had we not been pressed for time in hindsight I would have shown you how to do things and let you do them instead of explaining and walking you through it as we went.

The apology was accepted. Sigh Frig. Humans!

So it's Monday and so help me LEAVE me to do my job now!

Don't you just love dealing with the public? Some people I tell ya!

Sorry, you had to go through that. It wasn't your fault but being the only one there, you had the bullseye on your forehead.

And we're back to being a basket case. Sorry for the vent but I need too!

I actually walked out of the front door in the middle of her rant today. It was just out to the car to collect my call sheets from the businesses I had visited yesterday so as to enter the information into their client files. And she ASSUMED I was walking out on her and going home because I was irate.

I came back in and she was still ranting and accusing me of not taking a call list with me and filling it out throughout my day. Blatantly accused me of saying I didn't have one. I looked straight at her waved them in her face and said " I never said any such thing. I have them right here."
She had no choice but to eat crow and apologize, which she actually humbled herself enough to do. Oh yeah. She also accused me of having a number of errors yesterday. I knew I had things that needed to be looked after but being out of office... so that was the first thing I looked after and had done before anyone else showed up this morning. She didn't even come to me about any of it or ask, just assumed.

So apparently my manager was supposed to talk to me about them and it was mentioned just before everyone was about to leave. So the manager says I was going to do that tomorrow, knowing full well I've already looked after everything.

GOD, I NEED OUT OF THAT PLACE!

Morning! Thursday is ringing in with a thick frost! Makes me sad for my un-sheltered friends/community members! It is already cold out there! Our emergency shelters don't open until it get to 28 degrees...and we only hit 34. emoticon

I am already feeling the stress of the holidays! We celebrate Thanksgiving next week. I am hosting at my home. Which I really look forward to, as we keep it low key, with drinks, and board games, and snackable foods! But, none the less, I need to shop to get those items, and the stores are CRAZY! And I literally don't want to shop! I know, first world problems....

Anyhow, today started off crazy! I had barely turned the phones over when a florist called and needed an easel asap. I am the only one here, and have not seen any easels, so I tell her, I'm by myself, but let me see if I can get a hold of any of the staff that are on the grounds crew...give me 15 minutes. She yells at me.."I DON'T HAVE 15 MINUTES! I HAVE A SERVICE AND NO EASELS! WE GAVE YOU 14 EASELS LAST WEEK AND HAVEN'T GOTTEN ANY BACK! WE NEVER GET THEM BACK FROM YOU! umm...okay? So the 14 easels are still at the grave site, I was just there 20 minutes ago. I am not going to desecrate a grave, but if you can give me a couple of minutes I will see if we can find an easel either here in the funeral home, or out at the groundskeepers shop. So, a coworker comes in, I ask her if she can text the groundskeeper head and let him know I'm desperate for an easel. By the time I do that, return to my desk, she is standing at the front where my desk is, yelling that she went out back to the shop, and they said they didn't have any, that I would have them up here, blah, blah, blah. Goes on to say that I have wasted her time!? How did I do that? I didn't ask her to come here, I told her to give me 15 minutes to see if we had any, so she could use her time wisely and reach out to other florists, cemetery's, and her own resources to see if she could find one, while I was also searching. Anyhow...Welcome to Thursday. UGH.

And happy thanksgiving to my US family!

It was a good day yesterday. I was out of the office and on the road with Christmas promotions. Came back with several. Now to catch up on paperwork in the office today.

I had bought Walt a Fitbit/watch but even after following all instructions would not sync to his phone. So he was al;l frustrated and p.oed so guess what I inherited this morning and even though it was supposed to connect to an android it wouldn't but an iPhone Bingo! It doesn't have to be synced after it sets the time and date. But on no he's po.ed won't take it back once I had it up and running. aaargh!

A frosty morning here so the car is already running and defrosting. In high hopes, the boss lady leaves me alone today and just lets me do what I do best. She isn't in tomorrow so I'll be even more productive.

OK, I need to go get a few other things done before I head out.

Stay gold everybody and I'll try and connect later today as well.

Good morning,

After a good night's sleep, I'm back to feeling somewhat normal. WOW, When I said I was down for the count yesterday I was down for the count.
It wasn't so much the rough day at work but being the empath I am I was under HEAVY sorrow. Somewhere someone was having a heartbreak I haven't felt that kind of sorrow and it certainly wasn't for myself. Everything in my world is fine.
So now today I'm feeling drained from the heaviness of it but I think it has passed.

This morning, I'm rested physically and up doing what I normally do. Certainly hoping for a lighter day.

RedShoe Wow you were busy! The cake is absolutley adorable!

What a busy weekend I had! Friday night I went out to a new pub with my coworkers. It was fun, and the pub is a style I have never been to! They give you an arm band and you self serve. There are 30 beer/wine/ciders on tap, and you just grab whatever style glass you want, swipe your wrist band, and taste/drink away! It was really quite fun!

Saturday, I went to a local bakery and took a cake decorating class. I have never worked with fondant before, so that was very new for me! I had low expectations for what my cake would look like, but i was actually quite happy with the results!

Sunday, a group of us went to a local nerf war place and played nerf wars! It was fabulous fun and really a good work out! We then took advantage of a local happy hour! Needless to say I am ready for routine again! And back to healthy eating and drinking! But it was fun while it lasted, and a much needed break!

It was an alright work day My frustration started once I arrived home and opened my Telus bill for the month of November.
Apparently they had forgotten to include three PPV movies we had watched back in September that should have been on my October's bill. I had paid my October bill in full and expected it to be correct, right?
So I got on the horn in dispute of the matter I wasn't paying for their oversight and error. Their argument was you watch you pay. It's a legitimate charge. I said that isn't the issue. yes, I watched them but being as they should have been included with my October bill and I'm trusting that you have facts and figures correct paid the bill and paid it in full It's Done.

They still used the same argument. So this girl brought out the big guns. I've been a faithful customer for these 20 years and I do have a service provider that will give me the exact same package as I have with you and for far less. I can just as easily make the switch. (which I fully intend to do once this year's contract is done, but they don't know that.)

Oh then it was "Let me check with my supervisor to see if I can't get those charges waived." two minutes later she was back and guess what. they quietly made the charges disappear. good heavens, it was only 20.97! It took me a half-hour of arguing before I shot theirs to pieces.

And that was the end of my Wednesday. Nice.

TODAY Is MY tomorrow. It's up to ME to shape it, To TAKE CONTROL and seize EVERY opportunity. The POWER is in the choices I make EVERY day. I eat well, I live well I SHAPE ME!

THE EMPOWERED LIFE. EXPECT IT . BELIEVE IT. RECEIVE IT.
The human will is the most incredible thing. It's what keeps us going when everyone else expects us to quit.

THIS MEANS WAR AGAINST FAT:
I'm too positive to be doubtful, too optimistic to be fearful, and too determined to be defeated.

Well, as usual, I'm up with the chickens and have everything done as far as looking after my animals and getting ready for the day. So now, I'll work on my blog for the day before having to leave for work.

Have a get Wednesday!

yeah me too and the pills I have to give him now for the rest of his life are so small and he only needs a 1/2 on a day. So I crush it in two spoons and put it in his wet food every morning.

Yeah, definitely a belt. Mine does the same thing when it's fridged cold out. the parts aren't what's going to be expensive it'll be what the mechanic charges an hour! Mine charges 100.00/hr. But he's a darn good mechanic! He knows his stuff. But then so do I LOL I take my car in and say Mark fix this, replace that. and I hit the nail on the head every time. That comes from being totally independent of age 16 when I had my first car up until I was 39. So, yeah I still do it! LOL

I pulled out the German in me and made homemade ham and bean cream soup for dinner with lightly toasted garlic bread! Let it simmer all day in the slow cooker. OMG! YUM!
Made just enough for two.
Ingredients:
baby carrots
baby potatoes
red onion
celery stalk
yellow beans
green beans
and ham
summer savoury, pepper and salt for herbs and spices
and simmered all day in the slow cooker in 1 pint of cream. Salt to taste.

And you know why I made just enough for one serving LOL

I'm happy that the fur baby didn't have anything more serious going on! Always so scary when something happens to them!

I'm going to have to take my car in. When I start it in the morning it screams, like there is a belt that is loose. I also think it's time to have my brakes replaced. Wonder how much all that will cost! I so dislike going to the mechanics!

Happy it's Friday! It's been a quick week! Lots going on at work, and apparently outside of work too. Although, I can't pin point exactly what made it go by so quickly on either side?

Have a fabulous weekend!

I liked that analogy myself!
One of my own fur-babies has been under the weather. His appetite changed. He was eating more frequently, only little bits at a time and still losing weight. So, yesterday I had the vet finally able to take a look at him. I was worried, let me tell you because everyone was diagnosing the worst. Turns out in his old age he's developed hyperthyroid and very treatable but he'll have to be pills the rest of his life. That, I can handle rather than what could have been the alternative.

We have snow here too. Plus colder temperatures now -26 last night! BRRR!
Have a hair appointment on the 14th and eye exam on the 30th.

Up since 3:30 this morning. I tried going back to sleep but fur babies had other ideas. So I stayed up. Going to get things done earlier this morning including a new blog. So I'll get that posted a little later.

Thank you for sharing your daily motivation and insight! I love the relation of life to the train. One of my quests daily is to "take a different way home". It's so interesting the things I see when going a different way. I see people I would have never seen, sometimes kids playing soccer, sometimes people walking for exercise, or just part of their commute. I have gotten to know my town, observing what happens in different areas, and at what times. I have found beauty that I would have never noticed...often just stopping for a few minutes to take in my surroundings. Taking a different path, or changing the path is so refreshing. Thanks for sharing!

It's been a week alright I've never been so glad for a Friday myself.
So looking forward to tomorrow. Headed for the city for some shopping at Costco ad going out for supper.
I'm right now making homemade pizza. What a day to decide to do that! I worked almost an hour overtime making sure the production run had everything it was supposed to. We're representing Remembrance day this week and doing it differently than last year so I had to make sure my ducks were in a row. That's what Friday's are for so that comes Monday and the final deadline is due everything is in order.
And of course, I had not one but 3 people coming at me all at once so I put my foot down.
"Slow your roll everyone let me figure this out. I've got this Just let me do it the way I do it and I'll have everything in order before I take off."

You could have heard a pin drop. But enough is enough!

To top it off I had my friend Leslie delivering pallets for winterizing the animal hutch for the feral cats. She showed up. But that was all good.
I got'er done and locked up shop and headed out.

And supper is ready!

Yes and that's the reason I haven't brought it home with me. I keep it at the office.

Yeah, she's a real pip to work for and with.

I love that your poinsettia is doing so well! And you saved it's life! My dad has one that he has had for years. And it's leaves turn red just like you mentioned yours does! I don't have any of those, as we have a cat that likes to chew on our plants...and I've been warned that this particular plant is deadly to animals...so...The cat wins! No poinsettia's for us!

Your boss sounds perfectly terrible! I'm not sure if I could stand going in to work day after day, if she was the person I had to work with/for! I just left a job where the boss was just flat out rude, not to myself, but to other agents, to the point that I couldn't just sit there and try to run interference. She is just so stinkin' angry all the time! Who can come in mad already?? I often wondered if she put grapefruit juice on her cheerios every morning! I'm sad to hear that you are dealing with a crazy boss! All the more pressure to get your home business up and running!

I read a little on the revelation you promised! It does sound interesting! I will read more on it, as it is pretty in depth! I was raised a vegetarian. Actually a vegan, but I had no idea what these things were, as we lived in a community where we were all of the same mindset regarding food and health. Throughout life, I have remained a vegetarian, as I don't have the taste for meat. I do eat eggs, (sometimes...they are really not my favorite), cheese (now that I have gained a real taste for), and honey, (which I really love in my tea and on a peanut butter sandwich). But the basics which I read through, with the raw veges, fruit, beans, and nuts are all very familiar choices for me. I tried a high protein low carb diet, and granted it worked, but I was drinking my protein, (filled with chemicals), absolutely no fruit, and limited veges. It just wasn't sustainable for me! So, I'm back to unlimited fruit and veges. I'm actually following the WW freestyle guidelines, and not counting calories at all. I've been working with that plan for almost 4 weeks now, and am stuffing myself with unlimited fruit and veges, and am down 4.2 lbs. And, this food plan is sustainable. It's what I'm used to and happy with!

Stepping off my soap box now....Have a great day! Go kick your boss in the shins!

I'm nursing a Piontsettia boss lady threw out in the garbage last year! I saved its life and now it's triple the size it was originally and it's getting it's red blooms because I put it in complete darkness of my office for 15 hours every night until Christmas.

in the meantime...

A good day what's that I am SO SO Ready to drop her on her a**!

I have a client who does plays once a year and every year they book the ad with me. For whatever reason they e-mailed her and instead of forwarding it to me like she always does, she processed it and didn't say a word, doesn't put anything in the client's file as to the booking so that I'd know. So NOTHING, I'm totally in the dark. So here I am following up with this client and secured a 4 x 4 b/w for two bookings.
To top things off my manager thinking it was myself that had already booked a coloured ad forwards it to me. I never give it a thought because she often forwards me ads to follow up on. and because I already had this mindset I did just that.
So I'm finished, I submit the insertion order and the proof and she comes to me all irate figuring the client is going to figure her a fool because now there's been two of us working with the same client. The only person looking like a fool is the boss lady! Plus the client said not a word that she'd already been working with another. So what a DONKEY! Oh yeah, it's all on me, my fault.
Not only that in doing what I did, booking a bit of a smaller ad in black and white for two dates I made her a 100$ more than she had! AAAAARG I am so ready to pull out my hair!


On the UP-SIDE here is your revelation as promised

Ohhh I like the sounds of that! A revelation! Can't wait!

I had a surprisingly busy weekend! I had thought that I didn't have much to do this weekend. Which I really didn't, other then grocery shopping! But, I ended up hanging out with a good friend of mine, at her bakery. Terrible choice on my part. But, we had a great visit! Then, a little volunteer work I do on the weekends, turned into a much larger time commitment then I had planned. Still fun, and fulfilling, but just unexpected. Took the dog for a couple of walks, voted in our local elections, and pulled in the Christmas cactus before the predicted freeze we got last night happened! The Christmas cactus is the size of a small shrub. It is my husbands great grandma's plant. It blooms just beautiful, with bright pink flowers! Can't wait to see it in bloom again in a couple of months! Happy Monday!

Ok just very quickly because I have to head out to my day job here. I hate having to switch gears. One of these days, one of these days I'll only have to get up and start my day right here at the computer!

So, I just want to wish everyone a successful Monday with your writing and weight loss! In doing what I do now from home I've come across a real revelation which I will share with you all later this evening. It just makes so much sense!

The wind has all but died down this morning and the skies are clearing. That would be a good thing for me because I have things I NEED to get done now before the REAL cold weather sets in..
Today, I've already gotten the laundry done and into the winterizing; putting up the insulated windows and reinforcing all the doors with insulation tape to make sure I've gotten all the cold air sneakers.
Already have the front entrance done. Now I'm breaking for breakfast and then will tackle the rest of it. I have the living room window, my office and the back entrance to do. shouldn't take me more than a couple of hours.
Then it's to my home-based business for the remainder of the day.

Trust me I'm working on it!

There's nothing like a little adventure to start a weekend and nicely make it an earlier start to the weekend too!
The winds started picking up shortly after noon this afternoon and by the time 3 o'clock rolled around it was 100 km/hr so the power started intermittently kicking in and out. By 4 o'clock it stayed out so the boss lady sent us home. It's still out but thankfully earlier this year we invested in a gas generator. So as soon as Walt got home at 5:30 he got it running. In the meantime, I put together potatoes, onions in parchment paper and tinfoil and got them going on the BBQ along with pork chops and they were all but done by the time Walt got home.
So now at least I have the internet and he has his TV while we wait for the power to restore.

My wish for you is that you get out of the business and get to work at home, on your own, in less then two years! Stress is draining! I have definitely left jobs due to undo stress. In fact I'm in the third week of my new job. The job itself wasn't stressful...it was the people who were in charge that caused undo stress! They were mean, and talked horrible about other agents...it was awful! I began to go home at night feeling just icky! One of my very close friends still works there, and she is still suffering with all the nonsense! In fact, I think it has spiraled out of control even more!

What things constitute when you can retire from that position? I'm tired too, but it's because this whole working full time is new to me! I haven't worked full time in 10 years! But, I kinda love it. I'm just exhausted when I get home in the evenings. I'm hoping as this becomes more routine my exhaustion will go away. fingers crossed...

Chat soon!

Yeah well, today we had colder winds with wet snow showers Nothing that accumulated but UGH!

I'm tired, girl. My mind is tired from all the stress. I want to retire and just work on my home-based now but not doable as of yet.
My manager and I have a scheme as of yesterday. We're plotting two more years and then we're out of the newspaper business.

Today boss was tootin' my horn with compliments the first part of the day and then dissing me over the size of an add that I worked out with a client. They'd sent me the ad copy and requested a 3 x 5 Wasn't necessary. That size of an ad would have been too big. I don't gouge my clients. I help them work with their budget and come up with the most effective ad. And something that can be run more than once rather than a larger ad that they can afford to run only once. Common sense right and more ad $ in her pocket.
This client accepted my proposal and rather than run the ad twice was able to run it for four weeks.
And on top of this, I am thoroughly disgusted with her. She's increased the cost of ads again! And this time quite a jump. And then she complains sales are down?! I just shake my head at the stupidity!

Good on you for finding and fixing the problem...and then owning it! I love that!

We finally have a little sunshine! Monday was so, so, so, rainy! We set records for the amount of rainfall on that day! It was crazy! But then Tuesday and today, you wouldn't have known there was any rain recently! Fall is so bizarre! You just never know what you are going to get!
