~~It's Friday, Friday. Gotta get down on Friday!!~~

Decent loss this week! I know where I messed up or I feel like I could have lost more. I didnt walk as much this week as I had wanted and I snuck a treat one day while I was stressing about the repair work for the house.

I am exhausted today. We stayed up last night getting the final pieces done so they could do the work and I just am ready for this to be over. Bad thing is, we packed up a bunch of stuff into rubber maid totes, so we are going to have to unpack those things when this is over. I need to hang clothes, put stuff away, get rid of stuff. It feels like its never going to end.

I am so frustrated today. I am getting so sick of the BS here at work. Our sales are doing great, we are not getting a lot of customer complaints, things are running smooth but for some reason my boss is a piece of....work. At the start of the year he gave me two weeks of vacation, after a long discussion. Well, I have taken 3 days of that since. This morning he asks me "So you only have 2 days of vacation left and you are taking 3 days in June, what do you want to do about that 3rd day?" and I ask what he is talking about, I have a week and 2 days. He goes "when did we agree on two weeks?" and I had to reiterate the whole conversation with him, verbatim, and even then he goes "well, there are some stipulations on that second week, you cant take holidays off". Well duh...we are an online business, holidays are our bread and butter, I wouldn't do that! I am so irritated right now, I want to scream!! I dont ask for much, I dont complain, I do my job and I do it well, I dont know why this last year I have become the red headed step child. They treat me like crap, and then expect me to be all smiles and roses. Thats not how things work. When I started here, they averaged 150 sales every two weeks, since I have been here, we average 400. Their feedback score was 93%, since I have been here, its 98%. I work my butt off to make sure that they succeed, and I am at the bottom of the totem pole. I am the least paid, and the least respected. Its getting really old, really fast.

Today I will pray for my attitude, I will pray for patience and a kind heart. I will thank God for the blessings and focus on the positive. I will pray for my situation, that a miracle comes my way. I will pray that we all have strength in the face of whatever temptations come our way. I will pray for healing of the mind, body, and spirit. I will pray for a miracle. In Jesus name, AMEN!!

I hope you all have a good day. I am going to pick up my pride, stuff it back into my pocket, and get on with today. Its only 7 more hours. Ugg...

Hang in there! Good for you for sticking up for your agreement!

I’m glad you stood your ground on the holiday issue and not back down from a bully. In future, get such agreements in writing or record, openly, the conversation to avoid any “misunderstandings”. You are doing very well with your weight loss. Be proud!! Be patient, the repairs will be done and this stress will be removed from your shoulders. Big hug 🙆‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️

Sorry about what happened to you at work. Did you boss finally agree on the number of holidays you're supposed to have? Nothing in this world, not even a machine can work non-stop without a break. You should definitely defend your right. I'm really impressed by the way you dealt with all these issues. Despite being unfairly treated you still manage to face all these problems with ease and grace. Good job and enjoy your weekend!

You're right to be bugged, but your attitude to turn things around is awesome. You are taking control of your life on many different levels, and sometimes when others see that, they don't like it and try to keep things the way they (you) were. Keep moving forward and those people and situations that no longer serve you or support you, will be left behind. I always look forward to your posts. ❤

I suppose that the those vacation days were not in writing like an e mail or something like that? Hang in there... werk it girl!

Don't get stressed out. Usually people like that get their just desserts-pun intended. You are fantastic and if they cannot see it, that is their loss. Every time I have left a job, it takes 2 people to do the same thing and usually poorly....

Yes, get it in writing for sure! I know it's tough to be on the bottom and unappreciated. Hopefully you can work there just long enough to get a good resume built up for a better job, one that recognizes and rewards your hard work!
