Not going to let it get me down!

Well I was positive, but I lost my new weekend job before I ever started. They decided to stick with the woman that works with her now. She speaks Spanish and the woman knows her. I understand. It is hard on Alzheimer patients to have change. I was sad, but I wasn't really excited to travel 80 miles ( at least ) round trip. I was going to have to stay the night Friday with my daughter. Which meant sleeping on an uncomfortable bunk bed. Something else will happen for me. I took that darn resume class, yet I resist writing one. I just am not confident in my skills. Get over it Dana! I need someone to help me. It's always easier with a friend to help you talk yourself up! I know I can easily pass a test now. I just keep hearing about people so much more qualified then me getting passed over for jobs. They scan your resume and if you don't have it just right the computer turns you down. Fight that fear with some faith! Maybe I should have a professional help me. Decisions, decisions! Anyone out there want to help me via the internet??

Didn't eat over it. Put the word out that I need some Friday/Saturday hours. In fact, I cleaned. The fridge and stove. Did some packing as well. Did some laundry and then took some food to the church. We were doing a service project at a Man's Homeless Center.

Rethinking the gym now. I have been thinking I might drop my renter's insurance. That is the exact amount of the gym a month. I have 2 days left. Too sad. I really put in a good workout this yesterday morning! I love going every morning.

I still feel that loosing that job was kind of a blessing in disguise. Oh and by the way. I saw that old fart that fried me in Sept. I walked right up to him and gave him a big hug. He seemed happy to see me. It felt good to be able to do that without feeling resentful. I really did love those old nut jobs. Big Sigh of RELIEF! Forgiveness is for me, not for him. I felt like that was a Tender Mercy from a Loving Heavenly Father.

Have the best day ever!

Keep the mood and the food real


  1. You are SO right about who the forgiveness is for! I have a hard time remembering that sometimes.

    Things will work out for you. They always do. :)

  2. Hang in there Dana. It sounds like it was a blessing. Careful with that renters insurance decision. That can really come back to bite you. I was able to lose with walking and running and videos because I could nto afford the gym. It's not the same, but it can be done. You certainly have the right attitude about it. Things will come around.

  3. Aaaawww thanks for stopping by Dana. I was nervous about putting that rant out there . Nice to know i'm not alone in my observations. I think the rest of us are just too darn nice and nonconfrontational to say anything but i sure get tired of just trying to ignore them. I tried to find an email for you so i could just do that but i couldn't find one. Chin up girlfriend! Hugs! deb

  4. checking back to see how youre feeling this morning.


  5. DON'T DROP THE RENTERS INSURANCE! Just had a friend who had a fire in their apartment building and they were not insured. Devastating!

    There are many ways you can get exercise without going to a gym. Walk - do it outside or at the mall. Stairs - go anywhere and to it. Go to the thrift store and buy some weights and exercise equipment - it's cheap. If you can't do that use canned foods. Jump rope. Do jumping jacks, run in place, lunges, etc. You don't have to have a gym to get a good workout.

    Stay focused!
