This Week is DRAGGING..

This week has been kinda crazy. My mother-in-law and I went to Zumba on Sunday, which is always fun. I tend to laugh when I get frustrated, and there were some moves that day I just couldn't get 100% right, so I was a giggling moron the whole class. :-)

Monday I worked, Tuesday I worked. I've been finally approved to move departments at my store. Instead of being a glorified babysitter of a bunch of immature cashiers who are increasingly testing my patience, I will be moving to the full-time spot in our Linens Dept. (which is kitchen accessories, bath accessories, bed linens, wall treatments, wall decor/furniture, giftables [candles, small knick knacks], and luggage). This is going to be a good and a bad move.

Good - I will not have to deal with the bunch a babies that work for us anymore. I will actually be able to take my on the clock 15-minute breaks (which I NEVER get to do up front), and I won't have to fight to get my [UNPAID] lunch with my managers. ((I am a supervisor, and since I have such an important job, I cannot take my lunch whenever, I have to have someone watching my front end while I do so. Since there is no other full-time supervisor, I have to rely on the managers, who frequently tell me how I'm an inconvenience to them to do my lunch... but I have no other choice. It SUCKS)). Also- come season time (Christmas, oh goodness!) I won't be dealing with the lines of customers, and the angry ones who are demanding we open all available registers when we clearly have EVERY REGISTER running.... -.-

Bad - I know that even though I'm moving away from the registers, that I will be still called upon for being a back-up cashier. I'm ok with this notion, if that's all I am. I can't be getting stuck on the service desk, which they may think will happen, but I will flat out refuse. I think I'm going to ask my manager to revoke my supervisor clearance in our computers and just put me down to a plain cashier level, that way I CAN'T get stuck.

So, this move will be happening around the first week of October. There is no turning back, so I am just going to have to do the best I can.

So Wednesday, I had the day off. I ended up spending from 7:45am until almost 2pm doing homework for my classes. And it was all READING!! :-O  This sucks! Then, I ran a couple of errands and went to class @ 5:30. After that I hit the gym.

Now, mind you, this is my first visit to the gym since Sunday. I have felt like crap all week and just have no desire to get up early. In fact, I CAN'T get up early. Every time I try my body is like "wait, no, you can't do that! we still need sleep!" and then I fall back asleep. John tells me I just have to start getting up and eventually it will become easier, which I know is true, but it's the whole starting process I can't muster the desire for! :-X

So, last night, I wasn't feeling 100% awesome. My lower back had this weird hollow feeling (I get the same feeling during my period... my cramps make my back feel hollow before it feels like I am a wind-up toy who is wound too tightly), but I know it's not time for that yet. Instead of running, I decide to just hop on the elliptical. I've decided that I actually like the elliptical. As long as I'm holding on, I enjoy going front and even backwards too. So, I spend awhile doing that, while watching a movie on my ipod as a distraction. Then, I switched to some club music, and worked my arms out for about 15min. All-in-all, I felt better after my workout. And I should hold on to that feeling, so I have motivation to go! We'll see.

I'm going to being my clothes with me today, but I'm not sure that I'll be going to the gym after work. I guess I'll just play the day by ear and see how that goes.

Ta-ta for now!

This world keeps spinning faster
Into a new disaster so I run to you
I run to you baby
And when it all starts coming undone
Baby you're the only one I run to
I run to you

We run on fumes
Your life and mine
Like the sands of time
Slippin' right on through
And our love's the only truth
That's why I run to you

  1. I hope these changes at work will mean less stress for you! Bound to make a difference!

    As for getting up husband says the same thing, but I think it's a LIE! If you really want to get up and can't...what about moving your alarm clock so you have to get up to shut it off...for me, once I am up, I am up...but even if you did hit the snooze would bound to get tired of getting up after a couple times!

    I loved the elliptical too at the I am too wimpy! I need to get out on the bike! I wish I could just wake up skinny with all the desire for a healthy lifestyle known to man! :-)

    In my next life, I wanna be a genie so I could make this happen!
