TGIF

What a week. Whew.

I’ve been working for a few weeks now at my new job. (Part-time for now) as internal computer support.

Last Friday the network storage device needed a hardware repair, which the outside tech that they’ve been working with for years, came and repaired.

Skip to Monday morning and find that the fix didn’t work and the device is now dead. Eek! Years worth of documents and program data is now inaccessible.

Without boring you all with the details, bottom line, no backup, partial data recovery, new unit on the way, getting data recovery estimates. It’s been a busy week.

I got a good review today though. It seems that they are all happy with my performance so far, and all feel that we work together well, even though I felt ‘in way over my head’ a few times, I’m doing a good job and people like me.

Most of you that know me, know that I don’t care much about what people think of me, but it’s pretty cool to get a job doing things that you taught yourself and enjoy doing and have others tell you that you are doing well.

This is good news, since the ‘part-time for now’ is supposed to lead to full-time, possibly more money, and benefits.

I guess quitting my job when I did, without a new job lined up, as scary as it was, was a good thing.

I had time to finish Ally’s room, reorganize my room, rest and recover from the high stress of the job I quit, and time to update my LinkedIn profile, which is how my new boss found me.

I guess timing really is everything :-)

Now to deal with the crazy days of Christmas shopping. Going out Sunday with a friend. Hopefully we don’t run into many rabid consumers. I just need to get some practical gifts, lunch with a friend and go home.

Turkey day

Ok so tomorrow is thanksgiving here in the U.S.

For me it is all about the food. Being part Native American, I can’t help but see it as the beginning of the end for the Natives that lived here for years before North America was ‘discovered’.

Feeling like a complete hypocrite, it is my favorite holiday though, because it is all about the food and spending time with people you love.

It is also a time to reflect on what we are grateful for before the lunacy, greed and capitalism of Christmas heads full throttle for our wallets.

I am thankful for the people in my life that make it bearable,  that I do not have to work tomorrow, and for the oodles of goodies that I will stuff myself with tomorrow while I watch the Seahawks 49-ers game.

Happy turkey day!! :-)

Blech

So tomorrow is the big day and I have now lost my voice.

I have not gone through my closet for work clothes and the thought of taking a shower is giving me the chills.

I started taking oregano oil last night trying to replace the need for antibiotics since they screw up everything else.

With Lyme, I know that I feel worse than I should with a sinus infection, but when I resort to antibiotics, I end taking them for extra long periods and I end up with other Lyme related issues that try to fight back against the antibiotics.

In short, between my apple cider vinegar regimen and the oregano oil, I smell like a pizza  place. Hope the new boss likes pizza.

Think I’m going to crawl up with some tea and a book while I listen to my Seahawks game on t.v..

Roller coaster week

So this week started out on a high note, with the job offer and ended on a somewhat sour one.
Week started with ‘I got the job’, then went to, had a biopsy on a funny lookin cyst,
stressed until results of biopsy came back good, tried to do some research for upcoming job on Monday, got a migraine, once pain from biopsy left, my sinus infection flared back up, I’ve been a melancholy lump for days now, and today I found out my car needs a pretty major repair.

I need to raid my closet tomorrow and make sure I have clothes for the job and go shopping for what I need.

I wish I liked shopping, maybe it would make me feel better. I’m dreading it though, and am now nervous about starting work Monday.

Yay Me!!

So I had 2 interviews with the same company last week, and a meeting today to affirm that I in fact will be working there. I will be starting next Monday on a part-time to start, then transitioning to full-time, in about a months time.

I am excited and a little nervous, as this job will be a departure from my most recent work history. I am actually going to be using mostly self taught skills and moving into a totally different career path than bookkeeping. I must say that I am so glad that I am trying something new now as my last few bookkeeper jobs have been through the recession and I am tired of a) forensic accounting, and b) trying to manage money that doesn’t exist..

If I never see another QuickBooks screen, it will be too soon..

Wish me luck!

Hello Stranger

So, I know I’ve been MIA for a while from my social media sites and blog. I have been going through some issues, mostly surrounding my job that have not allowed me the time or mood to write anything or reach out to my online community.

So here’s an update of what I’ve been up to:

I am happy to announce that I have left said job, which was literally sucking the life right out of me, without another job lined up, and have decided that while I do need another job to support my family, and have a possibility in the works for a position that will allow me to do something I enjoy while getting paid. I am also going to commit more time to getting some of my side projects more mainstream and getting a little healthier in the process.

As you all know, I have had a busy year of editing with Jessica Cage. She published 2 short stories and 3 full books, which I edited for her while working full-time. If you like paranormal stories, check her out.

I started making jewelry again as tReeVamped, LLC and have transferred all my inventory to my cousins’ new novelty shop in Connecticut. Look her up on Facebook if you are in the area, the store is really great!! Novel Ideas, LLC.

I have converted my sons’ room into my daughters’ room, since he moved out in July. This frees up a ton of space in my large bedroom, which can now be used for my fiance’s mini home music studio, (already set up) and my craft studio, (which I have yet to set up and organize)

I have also come up with a couple of ideas for android apps that I plan on learning how to make and try to sell. One is for personal use and the other is targeted toward businesses, so I potentially could make some $$ if the idea is received well..

On the healthy lifestyle I was working on in my previous posts, Step 1, Step 2, The Anti-Resoloution, and Step 3, I have slacked a bit and screwed myself up a little. I stopped taking all of my supplements that were helping keep my Lyme at bay because I couldn’t afford to buy them anymore, an infection that ‘woke up’ said Lyme, and the combination of sitting at a desk all day and eating junk food for lunch, I was a real mess physically and mentally.

I have since gotten back on my supplements and gotten a little more active while redecorating my daughters’ room. I have been to both of my Dr’s for checkups and the dentist. I am still using the natural deodorant and powder that I found to be the most effective, Primal Products are awesome! Definitely check them out if you are looking for natural products that work.

So depending on what happens with the interview that I had yesterday, I may be starting a new adventure for a job. There will be a big learning curve involved, as this job requires skills that have been secondary and self-taught up to this point.

I am looking forward to reaffirming my goals and starting fresh.
