There is nothing like feeling like you failed.

Saturday, August 03, 2013

Well I am no longer working. I really enjoyed my job but my supervisor changed the schedule during the time my mom had open heart surgery and I knew nothing about it. He said that they were phasing out the front counter position so he would have to let me go. I talked to one of the other managers and she said that he told her that I quit. Later I called to the corporate office to get verification of income and I talked to the lady there. She said that it was entered that I was fired for a no call no show. Well it is all good. Since I quit working there they have completely turned over their crew. Yesterday I found out that the other manager put in her two week notice. She said she couldn 't take working with the other manager anymore. The owner tried to beg her to stay and she told them that as long as the other manager is there, she is going. So, I don't feel so bad. It sounds like everyone there is getting a bad rap.

Oh well, God must have something better in store for me. My son moved to ND with my older son to work doing construction for him. I must say I am at more peace since he left. Hopefully he will grow into a responsible young man.

Things are starting to get back to normal again and I am happy. emoticon

    Agree sometimes things happen for reasons we don't understand. You sound as if you are good with this and I am sure will find something that is more agreeable for you. View this time as a breather and get yourself back on track and taking care of yourself.
I like you am dealing with sons who are in need of growing up and moving on. It is not easy but its time for them to make a life for themselves and we need to take a backseat and just be there as support (normal al that is) if they need us. I need to hear this now too. LOL.
Take care

Hugs and smiles
Deb

New Job, New Attitude

Monday, May 06, 2013

I started working as a waitress today. I haven't worked in about six years. They had me on the schedule for six hours and I made it. That included my walk to work. Thank God my mom stopped in right before I got off so she was able to give me a ride home.

I hope this will help me to shed the pounds, plus I am getting an opportunity to interact with others.

Wish me luck!

My mom is joining me.

Thursday, May 02, 2013

I know it has been a while since I have blogged anything. I have just been out of whack. My mom is now joining me on SP. Hopefully we can be a good support and encouragement for each other.

I hope I can get back into the swing of things. I start work next week so that will give me an opportunity to get some exercise.

    Hi Deb, my name is Laura, I just added you as my sparkfriend, could you add me as yours too? Wow, 14 pounds that is great. I too just started doing the video blogs, and they say you can't teach an old dog new tricks. I just learned how to video cam and download into my computer, if you knew me , you would know that is a feat, due to I don't even own a cell phone, lol. You are doing awsome, keep up the good work, nice vlog, sincerely, Laura. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Two steps forward; One step back

Monday, February 18, 2013

Well I weighed in today and actually gained 1 lb. You can imagine my disappointment. Then I thought I would measure myself and much to my surprise, I have lost a 1/2 in off of my waist, 2 in off of my hips, 3 in off of my thigh, and my upper arm stayed the same.

So I gained a pound but since I am loosing in inches I am okay with it. Now I just have to work harder.
