    • Good morning tuliplady

      I can actually feel for you because I have been in a position like that before...before you go into work, bring one of those stress balls if you find yourself getting aggravated..The attitude..I’d  think happy thoughts,like all the friends you met on fab40.

    • Be glad you have it to do. In fact, pass it my way.

    • I know it’s easier said than done but try not to overwhelm yourself about your workload. Critical thinking will have a major impact on the rest of your day.  

      Hopefully the day will just fly by.

    • Ummmm how is those feelings making you feel? Why are you giving someone or something the power to control how you feel?

      These are questions I ask myself and I usually adjust my attitude very quickly.

      Good Luck and be Careful!

    • Try to find something positive about the situation....the paycheck you will receive, the adventure of driving in the blizzard, even, the relief and joy you will feel when the day is done and you are home again estatic

    • I have found that the very best antidote to feeling sorry for yourself is to do something nice for someone else. It works for me every time! (Takes the focus off of the negative and gives you something else to focus on.)

      Another way is the ‘think of something worse’ scenerio. Years ago I was living in Pensacola, FL during a hurricane (Opal in 1995) and we decided to evacuate our home and head for higher ground. It was a terrible day - trying to drive out of town in a frenzy of fear (the hurricane was behind us!) and frustration (only being able to move about 10 MPH because of the extremely HEAVY traffic). Months later, though, I was still content to sit in traffic jams on clear and sunny days and count my blessings that I was only in some heavy traffic and not trying to escape a hurricane!

      It’s all relative...  

      P.S. - I’m with Jen - pass that job my way - I need one!

    • I agree show the woman up, who knows maybe they will get rid of her and keep you permanently on a full time basis.  Something to look forward to.

    • Hang in there!  Think about what you ULTIMATELY want to do and start writing a list of things that need to happen in order for you to be doing that.  Chip away at that list day by day.  You’ll be moving toward your goal instead of being stagnant in a position you hate, and that movement alone will help to elevate your spirits a bit.

    • Thanks for all the input my friends. happy  I posted this just before I went off to work this morning and I think just getting it out of my system helped immensely.  I went off to work with a better attitude than I started the morning with.

      I did have to remind myself a couple times that 8 hours of boredom (no it’s not a challenging job by any means!) brings in a very nice paycheck which I desperately need since I’ve had very few actual work hours in March.

      All in all, it was a good day and The Man even cooked me lunch so it was ready when I came home at noon!  He’s such a sweetheart!
