    Morning Odd, woke up early, fell back to sleep and had a nightmare that my car had been vandalized. I haven't had a nightmare in many years. Work was OK yesterday, think I'm adjusting to the changes. Have to be in the office over lunch for a 2 hour meeting, so less than usual will get done today. Emailed that recruiter but haven't heard back yet, would like to talk and see if it's an opportunity I'd be interested in No choir practice last night and no dinner with J, so I did the grocery shopping and a little packing in preparation for the weekend Not much to do today but exercise. Weather is holding steady which is good

    Yep. Responded to an email from another recruiter today. Hopefully I'll be able to talk with her sometime this week and see if it's a position I'd be interested in applying for

    Tbh I'm not sure, the problem is that only now I'm finding out about this and there is a lot of documentation already done that the reviewer could also look at....

    Morning Happy President's Day It may be a holiday but unfortunately it's not one I get off It was a good Sunday, usual choir and church. Met J for lunch at one of the usual places. Did some cooking and exercise Work hopefully won't be bad. Have a brief call with a recruiter, to talk about a position, will have to fit that in this morning Am starting to become more cautious in my search. Want to make sure I'm leaving at the right time and not jumping the gun because I got mad because my work got criticized. I'll proceed slowly unless I start seeing more warning signs Nothing else unusual today, just the usual exercise. Will be heading to Milwaukee this weekend so should do some packing sometime this week Weather is gloomy lately which is not helping my mood but at least the temps are normal, no extreme cold or heavy snow or ice expected
  5. Morning Ted Yesterday was a better day for me, relatively quiet work wise. Feel more supported that I had thought and more confident that I can make needed changes. Still planning to leave, but it doesn't feel quite so urgent now. Got my taxes done yesterday and met J at one of our usual places Today there's not much to do except some exercise and some cooking. Dad is busy so I won't be seeing him Might drop in on our church's game night tonight.

    Morning Tweety glad you slept well. I understand what it's like to feel like you're on a sinking ship, I have that same feeling myself Work was better yesterday, I have been able to change things to address things that our hyper-picky reviewer might object to. Part of my anxiety was that I might not be able to make the changes, but I feel now that I can I'm still going to leave, our weekly meeting was the usual mess....increasingly workloads likely coming, nurse being pulled to work on a doctor's pet project making yet more work for us, upper managment oblivious....so nothing's really changed. Tbh I notice many of my coworkers taking days off here and there, have a suspicion that they're interviewing Otherwise yesterday was fine, did grocery shopping and exercise. Responded to 2 recruiters who reached out on LinkedIn. Not sure if I'm qualified for these positions but we'll see once I get more details Glad the work week will be over and I'll be meeting J for dinner tonight

    Most likely I will

    Happy Valentine's Day Thursday February 14 2019

    BC that is young, comparatively speaking. It would be hard for me to accept too
  9. Morning J and I celebrated Valentine's last night at one of our favorite restauraunts, decided it would be better to do it then than try and fight the crowds at the restaurants today Work was not good, made changes to my procedures but was told I needed to make more. It really discourages me when I think I've fixed something and am told it's still not right. Have made more changes, hopefully these will pass muster Have decided this is the final nail in the coffin, and this year I will look for a new job. Will probably have to give up my work at home temporarily, or perhaps permanently. Might not make any more money, or even a bit less. But it's time to leave, I've been increasingly unhappy for quite a while now. And I want to leave before I get even more unhappy, or things start to get difficult for me Woke up early and had problems falling back to sleep, probably stress. Hoping that will change as time passes and I adapt and calm Thankfully at least the weather has been pretty decent, usual winter weather with no snow or ice or cold events expected over the next week or so

    Morning Work was a pain. We have new reviewers from the insurance company reviewing our cases. Somehow I got the hyper strict one, who makes all kinds of petty criticisms of my documentation. So the manager and I went over my latest one in detail to make sure we crossed all the "i"s and dotted all the "t"s. Very time consuming and I don't think it's really necessary. Hopefully I can adapt and satisfy Mrs Critical but who knows. It's another nail in the coffin as far as this job is concerned. Increasingly it's looking like I'll be looking for a new job sometime this year or next at the latest. Though if I"m being honest I've never really ever been able to visualize myself at this job long term, just too many issues Did some errands and laundry after work and relaxed After work today will workout and run to the post office We had more ice last night, thankfully power is still on. Strong winds expected later today, hopefully the power will stay on

    I have an old exercise bike which I use. I used to do longer, more frequent, less intense workouts. To save time I've switched to more intense but shorter and less frequent workouts. Have also been doing calisthenics like push ups and abdominal curls to build muscle in my upper body, since strength exercises are now recommended too

    Morning Relatively quiet day for me yesterday. Church but no choir this Sunday, was nice to sit in the pews for once. Met J for brunch at one of our usual places. Came home and exercised and relaxed. Decided to skip the Super Bowl Back to work for me today. Hoping this week will be fairly easy. Have a meeting Wed morning that's optional, but I might attend as there is sometimes useful information Still fairly warm but will get a bit colder as the week progresses

    Morning Tweety. Hope you feel better Yesterday was very productive, got cooking and laundry and exercise done. Met with dad for lunch. In April he's going to take me, my sister, BIL, and nephew to see Hamilton. Should be interesting Was tired this morning for some reason even though I woke up later than usual No choir practice today, so I can go to church an hour later than usual. Meeting J for brunch afterwards In the 40s today and yesterday, so quite wet with all of the snow melting
