Recap.

Wednesday, October 29, 2008

So I actually still have a job. It’s kind of odd I know. I actually was successful in worrying myself legitimately sick throughout the morning, true story.

The man who makes my life unbearable here carried himself like an absolute angel. It was very odd, ridiculous, fine. I don’t even know the adjectives I should use to describe the review. But bottom line, I still have a job.

At one point one of the principals asked where I saw my position in 5 years and whether I thought it would still be a challenge, after answering, I put it back on my supervisors. I challenged them to question whether they saw me in the position in 5 years and almost teared up in asking whether they were invested in me for the long term. The answers surprised me, but were very reassuring.

So yeah, yesterday was pretty spectacular.

Especially when you throw in there that I got to eat a turkey burger {lovin them!} and work out while watching The Biggest Loser for the first time in 5 weeks!

I can’t lie, I’m freaking sore, but in amazing way! :)

In other not so great news . . . Bridgit is still alive. I’m down to 2 nights left that I get to sleep with her in my arms. A thought that apparently registers in my mind, but has no bearing on my heart, because it is not fully processed.

I haven't commented lately, but you have been in my prayers. I'm so glad things worked out yesterday. Sounds like you were worried for nothing.
And, you're totally having a boy. There's no way they'd tell you they were sure of the sex this soon if it wasn't a boy!
As for Brigit, my heart is hurting for you. I just cannot imagine having to make that choice.

AJ said...

Yay for spectacularness! Too much worrying for nothing, apparently! Enjoy your quiet moments with your sweet Bridgit.

Freckles Chick said...

Thank goodness. I've interviewed and reviewed employees before and I must say--way to handle yourself beautifully in your review. Superb.

Love on Bridgit and tell her she's a good girl. You're making the right decision, as heartbreaking as it is. *big hug*

So glad to hear about your job and that the review went well! I imagine you feel that 100 pounds have been lifted off of your shoulders and that is always an amazing feeling!

Turkey burgers are awesome and I too intensely worked out last night...such a great way to funnel stress and energy!

Praying for you regarding the situation with your beloved Bridgit...

What a relief! An yay for being able to work out again! This is the upside of worrying (if there is any)- when you finally get the good news, the relief and happiness is overwhelming :)

Madeline said...

Think of this as my long overdue post to encompass all posts!! It will sound random but I have total confidence you can follow it :)

See you worried yourself about nothing (I know, I know...pot calling kettle black).

So happy you are back to doing what you love...being active :) Can yo send some of your enthusiasim my way...hehe

It's a boy...

Nothing hurts more than seeing a pet in pain...my prayers are with you sweetie.


It's hard to know what life has in store...but if you feel so strongly that the vue is not for you...then take it as a loss (I know easier said than done). But I've found out that when something pulls at your heat so much...there is a reason.

Thanks again for your sweet comments (and I cry at commercials...you are a kindred spirt)

Sorry for all the spelling errors, but I am about to pass out!
