Good morning everyone!
Cando, that's great news about your house foundation, repairs are not cheap! But this is not good:
wanting me to handle speaking with co-worker about some of the things that boss wants done differently
He is a micromanager that also wants to avoid conflict? Although he doesn't seem to have a problem with conflict with you? You are very patient to work with him, and you're right, it's a job that you need, as long as it's not causing you so much stress it's making your life miserable, you might as well keep working for him. That was my attitude with my senior dog walking client, she did drive me crazy sometimes and had significant personality flaws, like being mean...but I did see good in her too, which makes me talk to her and help her with things even now.
Today is a phone call day, so I will try to get things done in the morning, but won't have high hopes for a very productive day. The good news is, the dog wanted to go out at midnight last night, and I was able to fall back to sleep in less than 30 minutes! That's a first for me after a midnight trip to the back yard.

I've got a very busy day today out of the house and I'm feeling crummy but I've taken what feels like just a little bit of time and boosted my mood by achieving a few things
Put away laundry bag
Put away a second laundry bag
Changed towels in en suite
Dusted master bedroom
Brought dirty laundry downstairs with a spare bag
Bagged up clean laundry to go upstairs
Achieved dining table zero
Changed kitchen towels
Now I feel like I'm not coming home to have to tick things off at least
If possible, to do depending on when I get home:
Load of laundry
Put away Christmas decorations

Happy Weekend. A wet cold one here looks like the sweet spot for puppy walk is early afternoon
Was up late! Fell asleep snd then woke up at 4 am snd watched videos! Fell back asleep and slept very late!
Let puppy out and in
Put clean dishes away
Now all humans and animals are quiet. I am the only one awake!
Today I have a goal of healthy eating, and reclaiming dining room table, and updating finances and paying bills.

Thank you dtesposito
Boss gave me a chance when I needed work & couldn’t seem to get a job. Didn’t fit in the mold as it had been a long time since I held a full time job. He did warn me when he hired me that he’s not a patient person & not a good teacher/trainer. Employees at other location said they’d never work for him if he came there everyday. He is nice for the most part. He will fire someone on the spot without giving them a chance to speak. A few years ago, new employee ran out the door crying & never came back. (This was not a teen… an experienced adult & Mom of 2. ) He has a good heart for the most part. He’s a genius. I have a nice big office. I’m set up to work from home when needed. Good benefits. So, I just need to suck it up sometimes & I admit to not being an ideal employee.
Thank you for being so supportive, Diane.
I slept later than planned. Couldn’t sleep,but finally did sleep hard. Not enough quantity of sleep, but pretty good quality. And I feel very good this morning.
Brushed teeth, morning meds, brushed hair, ponytail, workout clothes on.
1st time to exercise in a while.
45 pushups (5 imperfect reg floor ones, 10 imperfect bent knee ones, 30 wall pushups)
Did 2 sets of 10 seated triceps dips
10 easy type squats
Back exercises including crunches & planks. (40 crunches, 1 30 sec, 9 10 second planks)
Drank 2 glasses of water

That's good, he just doesn't know how to deal with employees very well. And we all have our imperfections...

I am l a z y today! This gray chilly day is perfect to curl up w Book or video.
I have kept up with dishes.
Took puppy for a long walk in the park. So glad there is no precipitation. It was a good walk- sometimes the park is so isolated that it is a little creepy with maybe just one or two other dogs. Today there were quite a few dogs and humans but enough space. It was enriching for puppy to have so many scents to follow! We were heading down one path and she stopped and refused to go further - i trust her nose so we went in another direction
Now just had a snack- DD left to see friends so I think it will be a quiet night. A good night to do finances!!

Hi Everyone! Yay lennon
for getting weekend started !!!
Great news cando
on getting cars back on that the foundation does not need. To be fixed.
I am not sure how much I am going to be able to get done on house this weekend. I have a whole bunch of work for work that needs to be done. I had planned on house on Saturday and then work on Sunday but I got my car cleaned and then had lunch and there must have been some type of dairy contamination in lunch. Not enough that i got migraine and felt really sick but enough that I just passed out in sleep for most of the day. I am up now but still dragging around. The problem is that benadryl helps the allergy but if I take that on top of the trace milk which knocks me out I will be asleep most of day and night.
I had such big plans for house today and was feeling really bouncy this morning before I got the Dim Sum which in theory should not have milk unless something got cross contaminated or I suspect they also have a new cook as the food was all a bit different today. It was still the same main recipe but the filling on the dumplings looked odd and everything just looked off. I know the last time I was there I got the lotus leaf wrapped rice and whoever made it was not nearly as good as the previous cook so i decided not to order that again. I had noticed that then but not the rest. Today I notice everything was a bit different so I suppose if it is a new cook (and I will ask them) maybe they are putting a touch of milk in the bread. I went from bouncy to 10 min after lunch deciding i needed nap and then slept the whole day away. Thank goodness it was not much if it was milk as the migraines I get with anything above trace contamination are awful and last for three days.
I need to get lights on in house as I am sure the cats are thinking I am disappeared and tired of sitting in the dark as I leave lights on for them normally if I am leaving.
