It's good to just relax. I think that's what Saturday was for me. I had really struggled with myself to see if Sunday would be relaxing too, or if I would go to the gym, get a lot of stuff done, blah blah blah ---

Horn_of_plenty on 04/12/2021:
Yes, i cannot regret letting myself relax yesterday...sometimes getting into and understanding what the work/life balance is; and how different people need different things from it; is so challenging!

catch up with you again soon!

Enjoy your day at the park! What a lovely opportunity to recharge your inner battery and focus on nature and plants. I've become terrible possessive of my weekends. My time off is VERY important to me, now.

Perhaps once your BK class is over, your overall stress levels will come down. Well, that's my hope for you anyways :-)

horn_of_plenty on 04/11/2021:
It was a good experience again planting trees.

I do think once the course is over things will feel a little differently :-) thank you for your comments


KathyBlue on 04/11/2021:
I hope you get some peace of mind over the weekend and enjoy things you love. Recharge actively and shield up for next week. <3

horn_of_plenty on 04/11/2021:

Donkey on 04/09/2021:
Sounds like you have a busy day ahead, but at least you get to start your weekend early. I'd gladly leave work to get any kind of medical whatever.

Did you get weights in last night? I thought of you as I tried, pathetically, to do leg weights.

I appreciate your comments to me yesterday :-)

Horn_of_plenty on 04/09/2021:
i left work 20 min early and the owner acts like it's the biggest favor. i can't believe how this man has turned on me. i should be OK though.

i got my weights in...started late but did them fast and i'm so glad i got it done. it's ok if you struggled with your legs. it gets better with repitition.

i'm glad you found my comments to be helpful in some way <3

let's enjoy our weekend!!! :) celebrate!


Jacky82020 on 04/09/2021:
How did work go today?

Interesting how the Amazon workers in Alabama voted not to unionize. A big factor was union dues, but the article didn’t say how much. I wonder.

Horn_of_plenty on 04/09/2021:
alabama's not a big union state. they're not used to it. it's prob a "right to work state?" i'll have to look it up.

gotta pay dues if you want a union to back you. otherwise, with no funds, how does a union operate. they don't get it.


Jacky82020 on 04/09/2021:
We are coming from different points of view. I was indifferent to unions until I began teaching at a public school. Grossly incompetent individuals were protected by the union. I’m talking alcoholics and pill heads and those who sat all day talking on cells while the kids ran amuck. I hated that union and was the only person who crossed the picket line when these a$$holes wanted more money. The union leaders called me constantly at home, saying I’d regret it. Never did. In fact, many teachers respected me all the more for having the courage they lacked.

So I get it, as far as teaching unions go. And I’m sure they are not unique.

horn_of_plenty on 04/10/2021:
I see your experience is different. There’s bad apples in all lines of work though. As a different type of union member other than teaching now that I’m in, there is no tenure or work protection / stability for me. The union has done good for electricians and their pay rate but for my work as an office worker without an electrical engineering degree I do not have enough protection to know I’ll have a job for life. But I do know it’s the union who gave my dad a good life with good wages for him to raise a family off of. That’s important.


Donkey on 04/10/2021:
I'm so sorry that Friday was another horrible, stressful day. (((hugs)))

LOOKAHEAD: 

Thursday 4/8/21 work: I'm getting thru the week one moment to the next. It's a week I will not miss once it's over.  It's not worth writing more about, except that I know in my heart that I am not wrong this time and that although I won't be listened to or acknolwedged for it, i can know in my heart that what happened here at work wasn't my doing. I know in my heart that a the payroll woman who refused to work with me continued her harassment and complaints of me even after i wasn't working with her.

I can know in my heart that although i can't amend the situation because management has told me they are not on my side (in other words, same meaning), I can know in my heart that these things happen, life isn't fair, and love myself more for being myself. It's been a very tough week and I am sure the bullying and badgering will continue, although I will not say a thing.

I won't complain no matter what she does to the owner and only to my boss if it's worth it.  Like most office status quo, what has always "been right" is "right." I'm not looking for advice.  I've been thru similar things before. There's age discrimination in play. The woman who's bullying is payroll and knows my age, salary, where i live. nothing's good enough for her. she wants me out. Hey, if it happens, it happens.  I've been told by the owner, "you are the low one on the totum pole." and let me tell you, if those words aren't hurtful coming from an owner, when you go to them for help because you are concerned, i don't know what is. I didn't go to him, until she didn't stop, only after it kept coming to me, from the owner and my boss.

it's over now. but just to know it's not ok here to stand up when someone is hurting me - because they've been here a long time - and that i'm automatically wrong because i'm new (and younger), is not right. it's not right because the woman is a bully and trying to hurt me, on purpose, instigating all situations. And when i stand up because i want to say i need help, i'm told not to come to back tothe owner, to take care of it with my boss...even when the payroll lady goes straight to the owner. i'll always remember this, like i remember other extraordinary workplace scenarios in my mind, for life.

Everyone struggles with something. I've been dealt work struggles throughout my life. I'm not saying i'm never wrong and never could have done better. But this one time, i wouldn't change a thing I did. Because even if i did things not as well in the past, in my heart i know i did it right this time. That is the only thing that matters to me at this point.

I am making XXk, dealing with office harassment and bullying, in a company that goes with status quo becaues that's what's easier for everyone. this is the true world. most people will not be out to help.  This situation has been extremely stressful, hurtful and upsetting to me over the past 1.5 weeks or so.  It's something that could have been stopped in it's tracks as soon as it started. That's life.

Work:

**LOGGING** to be done today: Jan/Feb/March unpaid DONE!

finish other smaller tasks in last hour of work, leave promptly at 4pm.

Tonight: speedy and quick upper bod strength workout & some leg massaging for preventative purposes.

 

Thursday Eats

Large banana 150, coffee 40, coco custard pie so tasty 210 1/8 slice 400

snacks: tbd :-D half a pack of sour gummies 100

If you've done the best that you can do, it what you thought was right, then there's not much more you can do.

Let's focus on getting you through today and tomorrow. Chalk this week up a a rough week, and just get through it.

Having said that, when you are "low man" on the pole, keep your head down, get the work done, and try to keep quiet. They aren't going to change their ways, so don't waste any more energy on feeding this negative situation, with its negative people.

I know it's really hard and not a great way to spend your day. I think it's times like these where the line between work and life becomes so clear.

horn_of_plenty on 04/08/2021:
I appreciate you here, I have read and am thankful for your comments.

horn_of_plenty on 04/08/2021:
I have a vacation day on Monday to do finish all remainder work this weekend for the course. It's my last day off until Summertime, if i am still employed here till then! I shall rest up and get some good sleep over the weekend.

i write this in regards to your comment about work and life and the line is clear. That vacation day is a definite necessity for this work life balance. And i'm so glad i did take it, planned for it a week ago, and it's in the books to happen for me.


innerpeace on 04/08/2021:
Sometimes self validation is ALL you need. I hope things get better for you. Good luck with your shot.

horn_of_plenty on 04/08/2021:
Thank you so very much. I think they will get better if I stay away from her.<3


legcramps on 04/08/2021:
I agree with innerpeace, as long as you know that you did all the right things, there is not much else you can do. I too hope this isn't going to be a long-term issue for you. It is just awful when you are always trying your best to be treated like this!

horn_of_plenty on 04/08/2021:
I think it will get better as long as I keep to myself xoxo.


Maria7 on 04/08/2021:
When I was still working, I had to put up with bullies over me. Highly stressful. I wanted to quit EVERY DAY. But I hung in there, with our good Lord's help. There are people in this world who despise you for whatever reason, no matter if you do your job perfectly or not. They would still despise you. Going to the biggest boss never worked for me because the biggest boss and those over me always stuck together, regardless. Their cruelty is something between them and the Lord, so let HIM handle it. Just try to get through it until you can do something different. Prayers for you! And HUGS!!!

horn_of_plenty on 04/08/2021:
I can tell you have lived thru similar situations to me. I agree, it will come back to them from him, above. xoxo


Jacky82020 on 04/08/2021:
Maybe all you can do is suck it up and be nice. Never let them see you sweat. Time will either clarify issues or maybe you’ll have to move on. Can’t see putting up with crap like that indefinitely. BIG HUGS 4 HOP!

Horn_of_plenty on 04/08/2021:
seems so!!! ;)

i have nowhere to go...so suck it up it is.


Jacky82020 on 04/08/2021:
The only place you have to go is up!!!! This will blow over and you’ll do good.

horn_of_plenty on 04/08/2021:
I think so, too. At 38, it’s tough to deal with this situation when the last thing I want is to play sick games with a 60yr old at work!


Jacky82020 on 04/08/2021:
The old bit-ch is probably jealous because you’re younger & smarter & cuter than she’ll ever be or ever was.

Sometimes I act like I’m too dumb to know someone’s insulting me, Shows I don’t care & can keep the peace. But it’s situational, of course.

After Work: 

first dose if Covid shot right after work will be a longer day before Saturday volunteering - thank gosh I'm off Monday that's all I have to say bc this week is way too jam packed for my brain to wrap itself around ! I have to be there at 4:30.,..and i've decided i'm OUT of work at 3:40...i'm just....OUT. i don't need to be late or any later leaving work or going home...so, 3:40pm is my finiishing time this FRIDAY!. laying low, just telling boss.


Saturday, April 10th: VOLUNTEERING!!!

NYC Parks Stewardship Volunteer - check if it's really 9am-12pm? Goodhue Park, Staten Island...try to moderate myself so that i have energy for this opportunity as I have no more days off around this one, LOL, but really!..I'm excited to drive back to this area (staten island is where the funeral was a couple weeks ago; tho i do not think it was by this park) and take out food from a new restaurant on my way back to Queens, i'm around an hour or more away, need to look up directions...so, when i do have time - and i DO for this task! - i'll find a restaurant with good eats to try for Saturday later in the day after volunteering <3 oh, i can't wait for Saturday <3


Sunday, April 11th:

Do Week 5 Bankruptcy Due Monday, 4/12/21, review of bankruptcy chapters:

  • chapter 7 (liquidation),
  • 11(reorganization of a company),
  • 12 (famers/fisherman),
  • 13 (individuals with regular income). (most common ones,
  • 9 isn't common as it's for towns/cities and they USUALLY do not file for bankruptcy, USUALLY!).

& Do Week 6 (FINAL week) Due April 19, but hand it in early - be DONE with it!

  •  The Bankruptcy Rules (might be shorter / easier assignments than previous weeks, i'll have to see as it could end up being quite a lot of reading...we'll see.)

Monday April 12: Vacation Day #1 

Food shopping at Target using my gift card for this week or next weekend on my way home from parents if i visit them?, whatever i prefer...

Progress as of today: 5 lbs lost so far, only 0 lbs to go!

I just wanted to thank you for your extremely helpful post on my wall. You are the voice of reason I need to hear. Good luck with that covid test, it must be unpleasant!

horn_of_plenty on 04/07/2021:
thank you for thanking me. it made me feel good to hear it.

i'm always here to support you. I know how hard the battle can be with eating, dieting, reaching a desired weight. it was a battle i fought for years and just the past several, 5 years, have a finally maintained and reached what i've always wanted. i still have my struggles, but i've been there and i know what it's like.

you still are really close to your goal. and 120 is still a good number. just take your time. a rush never worked for me.

either way, keep on, keep your head up, and we're all behind you.


Donkey on 04/08/2021:
I don't envy you for starting off the day with a complaint. I've been there many times. It's not good.

Are you scanning stuff to Payroll Lady by mistake? That happens to me all the time. Sheesh, like she's never made a mistake? Or is that the only thing she has to complain about?

Take it from Mistakes Girl - she's the "low man", makes a ton of mistakes, but she's so nice and easy-going and gentle that everyone loves her. Be the positive in your office, even if it kills ya. What's the saying, Kill them with kindness --- something like that.

TOM is here, makes sense, wasn't sure how many more days i could feel like it was "almost here!"...my body does a great job throwing my signals. busy day at work, would have liked more sleep. glad i finished my homework. i have a vaccine appt on Friday. just busy this week. Potentially getting sleep tonight instead of upper body weights, though, we'll see how i feel.

...the upper body workout can get done fast if i push it; then i'll go to bed early - this is the goal but i may put off exercise until Wednesday if i go home too tired....something's always gotta give, can't have it all.

Basically, it's 12:45pm at work and I'm telling myself the most important thing, TO ME, today is to get my workout in...i'm here, talking myself up for it tonight. Because in this life, I should get enjoyment in getting the activities done that I want done, not just everyone else's needs from me <3

****************************************************************

Tuesday Eats

larger banana to counteract thigh pain/cramps 150, 1/8 coco custard pie 210, coffee 40. total here: 400

snacks: pb 100, 3 sucking candies 50, pain reliever, one more choc around 11:30 calming hunger and trying to do more work until lunch...

lunch: healthy - rice 200, beans 150, ground turkey not too much 100? clementines smallsih 50. 500...walked to the store, picked up some candies...had 3 chuckles (gummy candy things out of 5). 120...nice flavors. cured my massive sugar craving after lunch for either sweets or chips (maybe it's TOM, maybe it's the slightly less veggies in lunch, not sure).

snacks: 2 more of the gummies 80

dinner: healthy - i have a ton of leftovers, so i'll stick with what's at home. possibly have tofu with veggies, side of popcorn maybe - ground turkey not 

 accidentally erased dinner 600.

 during workout small things 100...workout ended up being upper and lower, success, i was able to start early bc i got home on the earliest side as i didn't do any extra walking and trains came quickly this afternoon :)

That's wonderful that you were able to finish your assignments, considering that Monday turned out to be longer than usual! I'm relieved for you!

horn_of_plenty on 04/06/2021:
thanks...i'm just frustrated bc it's always the same - exercise is always so hard to fit in as i like to be able to fit it in. oh well, i'll do what i can to not skip this week again. even if i do skip tonight, i'd have to skip again friday....


bearcountrygg on 04/06/2021:
Bummer about the rapid test but great that it was negative.

horn_of_plenty on 04/06/2021:
yes...it's going to be a REALLY BUSY week straight thru until around 1pm Saturday, a bit much. But glad i do not have covid. that would def change up all plans!

So true, do what's best for you ALL THE TIME, not just some of the time. And hopefully, everything else balances around that.

Def can’t accomplish all the time but as I get older trying to do more for me - this week it’s not happening - I’m just getting by - ugh ! Work !


legcramps on 04/06/2021:
Well, sometimes what's best for you means putting in the work one week and getting to balance it out a bit more the next week :) :) life is such a balancing act!

Donkey on 04/05/2021:
I agree that pie sounds wonderful! I like your philosophy of starting the day off with a lovely piece of pie and a cup of coffee. Life is tough, so why not start off in a delightful way?

horn_of_plenty on 04/05/2021:
haha, thanks! and not a huge slice...not to ruin a day's calories! ;) see my comments above also to Bear about the coconut custard! it's been SO LONG since i bought this type of pie. oh it's good. not filling though! i'm sticking with smaller slices of it, 1/8...for 210 cals a piece it's good.


coffee&calories on 04/05/2021:
I agree with everyone, love how you start the day with pie! :)

Horn_of_plenty on 04/05/2021:
well, 3x the support besides myself loving it = more days of pie (not big slices!)...just enough of the sweet stuff to wake me up at 7:30am when i sit in a very cold room to work!...today it was a mere 60F! ugh! i blasted the heat (small little fan heater) until the room finally reached 72F

HOP! I have a great idea for you! Why not go to law school? You’re certainly smart enough (I can tell). As I’ve mentioned, I did it for one semester & hated it, but then you’re taking courses like bankruptcy so maybe it’s more to your liking. Could also be the first year is the most tedious, idk. All I remember is this godawful contract course.

Horn_of_plenty on 04/04/2021:
it's just so expensive and time-consuming :(...

i want to work in the court system, but more as a clerk than a lawyer. i wish i had BOTH money and time for law school. maybe later on, maybe never.

but my hopes are set, yes, on working in the state courts in the future.

you are so kind xo.

yes, i agree that the first year of law school would be the most tedious as they are looking to see who will make it thru / cut out the slackers etc.

Horn_of_plenty on 04/04/2021:
i'd never want to be a lawyer, tho. it would be schooling to help me find jobs within the state courts. we'll see how far i get without a law degree, first...i will see what's available.


bearcountrygg on 04/04/2021:
You sure are getting a lot of mileage out of that pie......must be pretty tasty!

Horn_of_plenty on 04/04/2021:
it is so good, enjoying the store bought...bought anotehr pie on sale, coconut custard...man is it good. have to eat smaller pieces bc it's a little heavier.


Donkey on 04/04/2021:
Is this a store bought pumpkin pie or did you make a new one? What a wonderful way to start any day! I love the cozy taste of pumpkin pie -- all those delicious spices bring a warm feeling to my heart!

Horn_of_plenty on 04/04/2021:
store bought...i haven't been cooking or baking at all lately...i want to, but, it's not how i prefer to use my time. maybe next weekend i will. once this course is done, my time will free up, a little bit.

there's something about a slice of pie in the morning, it is good to wake up with when combined with a coffee!


Jacky82020 on 04/04/2021:
Yeah, it was expensive and I attended a crappy law school that basically accepted everyone. It was ABA accredited. This one charged $1000 per course. You’d probably need big student loans or moving back home home to afford law school.

I’ve always been fascinated by the states that allow ppl to take the bar without going to law school. But it’s been years I’ve forgotten which. Never many. As I recall, one could work under an attorney or judge etc in California & then take the “baby bar” and attend law school for a year or so. What I know about law school dates back 15 yrs so probably a lot has changed

Horn_of_plenty on 04/04/2021:
at 38 and not a lot of money to spare, i'm looking for a job that will pay my bills and keep me satisfied, but def not by going back to school again! only these shorter, cheaper courses are ok by me, to keep learning, challenging myself, but with some semblance of a budget!

Horn_of_plenty on 04/04/2021:
unfortunately, my paralegal certificate that i got early Fall isn't ABA because it doesn't involve an internship (i knew with a pandemic i wouldn't be able to do that anyways, so i went with whatever option i could achieve.)


Jacky82020 on 04/05/2021:
I checked out that law school. It’s now $1100 per unit, not course & the courses I took were 5 units each, so woulda been over 15K! Never would have gone there, would have studied for the LSAT & applied to a public school. Plus they have all kinds of other added fees now

horn_of_plenty on 04/05/2021:
it's crazy...school prices have all skyrocketed in the past couple decades!


Jacky82020 on 04/05/2021:
Yep, I was there ~15 years ago. Boring! I studied my a$$ off for B’s. Most ppl had C’s except this pretty young thing said to be porking the prof. LOL She got A’s. She dropped out and married him.

lunch: rice and chili that i had previously made & froze (and is tasty!), clementine, hot coffee? (diet soda really wrecks my skin, even though it's free in the fridge here i may not take a diet coke as i'm low on sleep and everything else so it's just poison today..but i may change my mind!) 600

snack: couple chocs 100

dinner: will be takeout thai - and i'll do 2 dishes / lunch specials so i have a nice lunch tomorrow also. so far: glass noodle 100 soup veggies and shrimp 200 ..., later gummies &kombucha 200

a little of the main course close to 8pm that i ordered: fried tofu (i wouldn't mind if it wasn't fried!) 100, sauteed eggplant and veggies 100. 200

1850.

not really full, trying to just relax and drink more sweetened seltzer...didn't drink much today and was stressed, so trying to relax now at 8pm so i can sleep well.


turned out to be a CRAZY BUSY DAY and a bit of stress as i had to rush a little too much, i think? anyways, happy friday! will relax now, do a small load of laudnry of half the guinea pig stuff bc it wreaks...the rest will be done with the rest of my laundry on Sunday. just needed to change some, before company sees my guineas tomorrow!


bed early tonight as i have to look fresh and feel it tomorrow.

today was a "no shower" day...body wipes only. i now give myself relief of up to 2x per workweek where a shower isn't mandatory anymore. but i use wipes. it all boils down to what's important time-wise. and i'm still clean, doesn't have to be perfect, just has to work for me.

Hope you have a great day! I'm trying to stay away from diet Coke, too, but I've told myself that it's better than reaching for food. So I was using it as a daily crutch for a week or 2. I think this is the first week that I haven't had to reach for one.

horn_of_plenty on 04/02/2021:
i cave to the soda too...i may even reach for a monster today. not sure.

horn_of_plenty on 04/02/2021:
and no matter what, i know i'll be in bed early tonight!


bearcountrygg on 04/02/2021:
