have been challenging times work wise. What with coworkers having problems that have been keeping them away from the job etc. The good thing is that slowly all the staff have been trickling back from their short and long term absences. We have 30 staff on out team and at one point 12 members were not at work. Of course there was a lot of overtime and even Saturdays we spent working. The rough times are now over and now we know that no matter what pops up we can face it head on and get the job done!
And on a “lighter” note…I have been keeping with my better eating habits and walking away my lunch hours at work and keeping up my yoga practice after my long days and nights at the office. As a result I got the best compliment last night from a friend of mine. “You have an amazing ass!” Sigh! All that hard work is definitely worth it!
Had the middle two weeks of July off! Didn’t go away…using my holiday money to repair the roof. There has been so much rain lately I have nightmares about the roof leaking! I know we need it fixed cos the shingles are looking pretty ratty! I am glad that I can help my parents out with this. They are on a fixed income. So for my holiday I just relaxed and did not think about work at all! Funny thing is work called during week 2 and begged me to go into work as they are short 12 people. We only have about 30 left. I really thought about going in the next day and for the rest of the week, but then I caught myself. What am I thinking? I never get two weeks off in a row! No one else would even think about cutting their holiday short! They didn’t give me extra incentives like OT or time off or hell even coffee! just their WORD of appreciation? Nope, sorry…not good enough. If they treated the employees well they wouldn’t have so many people off for stress or sick leave. Their F**K you school of management style is just not working. With so many poeople playing hockey off work maybe they should open their eyes! I usually give in but not anymore! You can only push me so far and I have reached my push limit! So for me that is new and certainly very, very fulfilling to say, “I am sorry but I am taking my alloted holidays!” :D
