Staying positive...

Yesterday went so much better with my change of attitude. There were a couple of things that could have gotten to me...but I just didn't dwell on them. My boss had ask me to start a new project and hour before I was to get off work on Friday. There was no way possible that I could finish it in an hour so I had to finish it yesterday morning whenever I got to work. It took me about an hour and a half to complete it. My boss said that I did a great job and commented to my department manager to have a look at it. Later when my boss wasn't around my manager told me that it could have and should have waited until Monday to finish because Saturday is a busy 'sales' day. He didn't say anything positive about the project at all. I wanted to say..."Look, I didn't ask to do the project in the first place and I missed 2 or 3 hours of making my sales but I was doing what 'our' boss ask me to do." How do you make everybody happy?! You can't. I don't want to be around negative people. I just went about my business and tried to make up for my lost sales. We have a sales goal that we have to meet. (We don't get commission) Anyway...that started my morning....


Today I have to be at work at 12:30. My daughter is singing at church tonight. It starts at 6:00 and I have to work until 6:30. Hopefully I will make it to the church before she sings her two solo's. She really wants me to be there. This is a recent photo of Christy and her husband Phillip and her cousin Kim. I'm so proud of Christy. She is such a good wife and mother.

G'day, Lee Laurie ~ Sorry about your work experience, but you handled the situation with grace & properly. Too bad there are still so many thoughtless people in this world. Be proud you did as asked ... you are far better for it.

Good luck to your daughter & her solos.
