At Work on the Holiday

July 5th, 2010 at 12:18 pm

Well...it is officially a holiday today but I find myself at the office. I got an email from my boss late Friday night about changing my schedule. I had asked if I could work 12-8 on Tuesdays for a while. Although he approved this, his response was a shock. he is concerned with the number of dr appointments, flea treatment, school activities that I have had lately. He feels that I am not living up to the productivity level that I have in the past. Case in point was an invoice that he was hoping to get out before the holidays. I don't think it was possible to get it out prior to the holiday. I lost one complete day last week to computer issues. But anyway, since his email hit me hard, I decided to come to work today to get caught up a little. There was several things from last week that I didn't get done. Plus our refrigerator at work died so I am having another one delivered today. But bottom line...my job is not as secure as I thought, even just last week. I have not responded to his email yet, as I want to think about it before firing off an angry/hurt email.

We had a lunch at my house yesterday for my father's birthday and my DD birthday. I cooked on the grill. It was the first time in probably 5 years that I have hosted something at my house. It was fun. My DD got her birthday present(a trampoline) even though it isn't technically her birthday until Wednesday. And my DS and his friends got it set up. She was jumping on it in no time! I spent $30 at the grocery store getting last minute stuff for the meal. I haven't entered them yet into my check book, but I am sure that means that I am out of spending money. I alot $150 each pay period and the last two pay periods(since I have been doing that), it just hasn't been enough. It includes groceries and any money that is spent. Might have to rethink it and see if I can make it higher.

    it is a very good idea to wait to reply to that email. I have sent off a few too many when I was in the heat of the moment and regretted it. Hope you got a lot accomplished today at work.

    Good luck with the boss. Maybe the best response is no response? Otherwise with a simple, "thank you for approving the change in hours".
    The get together sounds great!
    Have you ever tried out Angel Food Ministries? If not, look them up online and perhaps that could help with some of your food costs. Do you have an Aldi?
