Good Intentions
Monday, September 12, 2011      4 comments

I woke up motivated today and I hope it lasts. It's going to be the best day of the week weather wise, so I definitely want to walk outside, run some errands and get some Avon books out there. I also have a long to do list today: I'm beginning... Read more

Sunday, September 11, 2011      6 comments

My daughter bought me tickets to a Detroit Tiger game for Mother's Day. The original game date brought lots of rain and a rainout. The game was rescheduled for a day that was inconvenient for me, so I exchanged the tickets for tickets to yeste... Read more
Maybe my Expectations are too High
Saturday, September 10, 2011      8 comments

Every day, I wake up with grand intentions of getting things accomplished. I keep applying for jobs in hopes of getting job interviews. I feel like I'm not getting anywhere in either area. I think I need to re-think how I'm doing things and r... Read more
A Busy Couple of Days
Friday, September 09, 2011      3 comments

It's a good thing I make notes and really try to pay attention to things. I looked at my calendar yesterday to realize that I had a three-hour Avon meeting right after work. On my way to the meeting, my brake pedal started squeaking again... Read more
Hoping for a Better Day
Thursday, September 08, 2011      2 comments

My boss wants me to come in for a few hours to finish the "instruction booklet" on how to do my job. To give her credit, she is at least saying that she wants me to take on more responsibility. But...she still thinks I remember things she show... Read more
Not A Good Feeling

Unofficial End of Summer
Tuesday, September 06, 2011      4 comments

I don't go to school and my children are grown. But there's something about the unofficial end of summer and the start of school that makes me want to take stock of myself. I'm thinking a lot about what I should do with my life and how I will... Read more
A Definite Labor Day
Monday, September 05, 2011      3 comments

Labor Day is a day to take off work and celebrate the working people of the world. Subconsciously, my mind and body must be aware of this today. My motivation today is not very high yet - I've been very slow to get moving this morning. I've g... Read more
Setting New Goals Slowly
Sunday, September 04, 2011      3 comments

I've been wanting to set some new goals for myself for probably a couple months now. It's now very obvious to me that I haven't set aside a chunk of time to do this. So, I will take a small portion of time every few days or so to come up with ... Read more
Advantages of Not Working Much
Saturday, September 03, 2011      7 comments

I've found a couple advantages of not working many hours. I am more motivated to get my house and life in order. I must admit, though, that I've been doing better at the house part. A goal that I have is to have stuff ready to put in a garag... Read more
Accomplishing Things, But...
Thursday, September 01, 2011      6 comments

I have been getting some things done that I have been putting off, but not as many as I'd like. I am finding that some things are taking longer than anticipated. At other times, life just gets in the way. I am trying to talk my brother ... Read more
Disappointed - Yet Not Really
Wednesday, August 31, 2011      4 comments

I'm kinda disappointed in myself for not being able to do better at this part-time job I'm supposed to have. I always try to do my best; although I'm honest enough with myself to know that sometimes I make mistakes. I have not gotten a phone c... Read more
A Nice Change of Plans

I was headed out to do my errands yesterday when I got a phone call. It was one of the employment agencies that I am registered with. A company that I have filled in at needed me to come in for a half day to replace the sick receptionist. It ... Read more
A Feeling of Resignation
Monday, August 29, 2011      7 comments

I woke up this morning with a feeling of resignation about my job. I just don't want to go back. I'm tired of being "on call". I'm tired of being criticized and being told that I'm not going to be shown how to do things because "they have to ... Read more
