Asking for help

So in a nutshell I am overwhelmed at work right now.

I voiced my concerns to my manager. I think I said overwhelmed about 3 times and I asked for help. With year end quickly approaching I have about 10,000 things that need to be complete by December 1st.

She has assigned 3000 of the 10,000 items to other people to complete.


I think it was the fact that I specifically said "I will do what I can" with my daily updates to her at where I am at. With only 7 hours in the day and the fact I REFUSE to stay longer that I am paid for and they refuse to pay me for more hours that I am willing to work. Also now that Fridays are a write off seeing how I am not permitted to do my regular job duties. It makes sense.

So its settled... ha ha.. I am officially and Gov And its a bit of a LARGE pill for me to swallow.

It was getting a little out of control...

It was time for a closet overhaul!

So ummm.... this was mid way.. And I am ashamed to admit I had to go back to the store 3 times... Yeah.... I guess I underestimated how many shoes I had!! And yep, there are more than one pair in LOTS of this bins.

Voila!! I am so excited.. Not sure I like my shoes all covered up and away.. But based on how many shoes I had to dust off I think this is a great idea!!

Oh and I am going to try to not buy ANY shoes in November... Wish me luck!

One less thing to worry about...

About having a job. Or not being able to find a job...

Well because I can do basic math.

Conversation had at lunch today.

I am at the sub shop.

My change due to me is $3.97 the lady at the cash yells out "I need quarters"

Manager says "Well it will take me about 10 minutes to open the safe"

Both look at me blinking eyes.

Me "Umm Ok here is 3 cents."

Stupid lady at the register "What is this for?"

Me "So you can just give me $4 change"

Stupid lady at the register "But I do not have any quarters?"

Me "Right but if I give you 3 cents then you owe me $4"

Stupid lady at register **blink** "But how does that work??"

Mental Health day..

So yeah.

I called out.

To both jobs.

And I stayed in my jammies ALL DAY! And it was great. And I am dreading going back tomorrow because I will be a day behind. But oh well.

I got caught up on all my Tivoed shows, played with the dog. Walked the dog **gasp** in my jammies... lol And I just did not care... And it was great.

Quality time for me.

Busy week.. oh and shoes

The hubby is away for a week in Kentucky and even lost his luggage... which he has back now but I think every traveler has some sort of "mishap" once in a while, and the amount he has traveled in the last year and this is his first "mishap" he is doing pretty good.

While he is away I am working my but off at the gym and at work. I work both jobs every day this week.. A little crazy I am sure but it sure beats sitting on the couch eating bon bons,

It also allows me to buy these without feeling the least bit guilty!! Well with a $14 price tag I mean I HAD TO HAVE THEM... And they are purple so it sealed the deal.

My regular full time job has been a bit of a drag lately.. Now that I know we are moving its hard to keep my heart in the game...

That was COMPLETELY out of line!!

SO remember why I left me last job? You can read the long version HERE, or to sum it up in a few words.

Love my job, hated my manager and could NEVER say no.

Well when I left I promised myself NEVER to let it happen again. I would never just "suck it up" and not express my feelings. I would never again be a "yes" girl not setting my boundaries. I would never again let someone else take credit for work that I had done. And I promised to work hard at telling everyone around me they do a great job and thank you.

Anyways today at work I had a run in with one of the managers. To explain our office, I have 1 manager. She oversees all 17 of us. There is another manager who does not really have a say in what I do and oversees 6 of the people and answers to my manager.

So she asks me to do something and I "ask for clarification" on what she asked. She Immediately jumps down my throat "I DON'T CARE!!...blah blah"

I am FUMING, I swallow my pride because of coarse she YELLS it out with everyone standing around and I set out to cool off.

I give it a few minutes and I ask my manager if she can give me a minute, I walk into the "lady in question" office and I go off.

Me "That was COMPLETELY out of line, not to add TOTALLY unprofessional, it was clear I was asking for clarification it was unnecessary and out of line to speak to me like that and I do not appreciate it"

It felt so damn good. And I would do it again in a heartbeat. I just wish some time I would not get so emotional. I was fighting back tears the whole time and I was SHAKING I was so pissed.

And I let it ruin my day which is the bad part. And then I came home and headed off to the gym to RUN my ass off. I will pay for it in the morning that is for sure. But it worked.

The deer in the road who was a "little" bold

OK this is kinda funny.. This is when we headed out to Mount Rushmore in August... It makes me giggle to watch it.. We are trying to get the dear out of the road, I only started the video after about 5 minutes of yelling out the window at it...

This is why I work part time

Aren't they pretty?? Different that is for sure.. But I kinda like them.. I have not ordered them yet because I am a little leary of ordering shoes on line..... However the one time I did I had GREAT SUCCESS!!

Hummm maybe I should sleep on this one?

My public service announcement!!

So WAY back in the day I broke my neck. I was taking up to 30 vicodin a day.

Needless to say this was NOT GOOD for my insides and I have done some permanate damage. Well there was a time when my insides would bleed and it was hard to poo.

What? Everybody poops!...ha ha..

Anyways so I have tried EVERYTHING to be regular. I had tried laxatives that one time remember? You can read about it again here.

I have tried all the cereals, vitamins, pills.... Yeah but I have FINALLY found something that works. Now let me pre-warn you these bars are unlike anything you have ever tasted.
They come in a bunch of flavors, taste good. (I found most of the other ones taste like cardboard) but these ones are the shit (so to speak)

Fiber one! Try them. I SWEAR if you ever don't feel right one of these will fix you right up! Serious.


So go here and sign up with your address and email and they will send you a sample free.!!

Who does not love free stuff??

How cool is that? Everyone can use a little more fiber in thier diets anyways and some of these bars have up to %55 of your daily fiber intake. And they are DELICIOUS!!

I even have the hubby hooked. Serious go out and buy some.. tell me what you think. I only have one about every other day and I am good to go....

So my suprise gift is working

So the magazine worked.

2 miles Thursday night
2 miles Friday night, and 1 miles today.....
I know, I know that is not far but I am just warming up. Daisy loved it and the weather is perfect for it. With the acception to the stupid bugs it was a great walk/jog/run/whoamIkiddingitwasaquickwalk.

My birthday gift from the hubby is new running clothes and I splurged on new shoes. So now I HAVE to do this! I am going to aim for another 1/2 marathon in February in Texas. My bestest friend I had out here just moved there and I am twisting her arm to train with me. And then AFTER the marathon jump on a 3-5 day cruise and lay around.. just what our bodies will be needing!! I think its a great idea. Training is cheap (with exception to the new shoes) I have everything else I need (GPS Thanks again Patty) all the gear MP3 player, clothes (I dug them out yesterday). I am excited again.

These are the shoes.. I know, I know they are yellow. And the UGLIEST of all the shoes I tried on, it was a toss up between these and these REALLY cute pink and white ones but these ones won. They were the best fit for my foot, they felt the best with the support in them. So they are it. They are Asics and they are growing on me. Super comfy but I will see how they feel as I break them in.

I am SO excited!
Just remind me of that when I am BITCHING and moaning about getting up early, shin splints, ass aches and pains.... Oh yeah this is going to be fun.

Oh and if you would like an invite to my private running blog.. Yeah I said private I am going to post all the gross ugly fat pictures of myself and how I got to where I am and to document where I am going. Its still a work in progress so when its all up and going I will send y'all the link.

I bought these ones for fun. These are my "cute" walking shoes. I will not use these ones for training because they are not really built for that but I needed to feel better about the ugly ones.

Happy Birthday to me!!

What? I do not have any cute burgundy ones yet?? these were TOO cute to pass up, its my birthday gift to myself.. Oh and Daisy got me the purse that matches PERFECTLY to the shoes.

I swear I have a gift I get an idea of a shoe in my head and then search for it for months. I do not settle on just anything, I must GASP at the prettiness of the shoe and get excited and do a little jig.... Ok maybe I need some help. But the purse is PREFECT for the shoes so I must have them both!
