Oh man, I totally feel the same way with resumes. Mine are always more fact based. Like I did this here. My old boss actually helped me some with it awhile back. Adding in things like "Cut down on imaging service, saving the company 10%" or whatever type lines. Good Luck!

 

But that is the fun thing, is I can't say I have done any of that. My boss gets credit for those ideas because she has the budget. I just get to say things like "Hey, we are out of fake urine."  I got something turned in, so I will call that a win. I dunno, I would much rather just come up with a list of names and be like "Please call them. They will be much nicer with me than I am with myself."

 

Now to convince myself to start looking into applying for internships..

So starting Thursday of last week, the world got silly. We were suppose to have a quite night Thurs. Instead we ended up in the ER when a piece of rosemary stem got STUCK in the back of Youngest's throat. Youngest Agent is completely fine, but they needed to use forceps to get it out. She had some small abrasion's in the back of her throat, but didn't even itch less than 24 hours later. New rule, we need to get a spice grinder to prevent that from happening again.  Needless to say, after that, milkshake was had (since we promised her on the way there she could get one if the dr okayed it), and bed was soon found after.

 

Friday sat and Sunday were crazy and more crazy. Not much was done stretches wise or anything. Especially since that whole female thing hit and hit HARD this time. Honestly, I just wanted my bed, but I got homework done and a few other things.

Challenge wise, I completely forgot again after Thurs. Not a great way to do things. I will be honest, I am thinking next challenge might be redesigned a bit. Mostly because December is hard for us.

 

Okay, time to get some stuff done, I have homework to do and I didn't sleep at ALL last night, but life keeps going, if I slept or not.

man, glad it wasn't anything major to get that unstuck. Hopefully, you get some sleep tonight!

 

Not going to lie, I was seeing some really scary endings to the whole "Its stuck" drama. But It worked out okay. I am so glad it was something easy.

 

I did sleep the last 2 nights which helped. Not going to lie, could use more, but not in the cards at the moment.

Update

So yeah, I completely forgot about the challenge. Monday I was home for about 20 minutes before going out for a activity dinner thing, where they had you take a cookie. The going was a total mess, so I ended up the cookie before I thought about the no sugar one. Nothing else was really done that day besides some homework. OH and I about lost it at work because lets be dumb. I was over the whole day by 10 AM

 

Tuesday started out the same. More of the same work dumbs spilling out and then I got another family member bugging me about Christmas lists. To the point I may of seriously considered telling them to figure it the F out, but realized, not the best plan. I also found a butterfinger the Youngest Agent had put in my lunch and ate that. More headaches with picking up Agents, but got it all done, then had to come home and make bread for Hubby's work thanksgiving.  I literally fell asleep on the couch while Hubby made the corn bread. OH and one teacher changed the assignment this week from 20 pgs of  reading and 2 assignments to 55 pgs and a 3 assignments on Tuesday. I have a big project in the other class due, so I kinda had a "nope I am done" moment. I still got stuff done, but not what I wanted.

I really want to get back to challenge, but I don't know how that will go. This week is a bit rough and I need to get the christmas stuff under control. I kinda wish the families would do technology and I could google doc or something some of this, but one yelled at me when I suggested it saying "I refuse to deal with googles crap."

 

I just need about 20 more hours a day.

Google doc it anyway! :) Tell them too bad haha, Or make them email up updates, or print them a list and let them know they are the only one you have to cater too about it ;) ok, maybe not all that.

 

Sounds like just an overall so much stuff to deal with. Good luck with it all.

Sounds like a pretty horrible week. I'm sorry! Good luck getting back to center. Next week is our off week sounds like it couldn't come at a better time!

 

I am really hoping that restructuring for the next challenge (basically do SOMETHING if not everything) will go better with the chaos of this time of year. but right now, I am more than a bit worn down. Sadly I don't see any down time coming up. The last 2 weeks have been bad, even for us.

If I thought I could just google doc it, I would. But lets put it this way, do I want to hear about how horrible I was for making them use google next october?? This really would happen. I am trying to do things, but yeah, life has been kicking me more than usual lately.

 

Here is to hoping I get something done. Mostly because all the progress I had made (which was like 4 lbs) is rapidly disappearing.

My nerves are going full tilt. I have my "field trip" to the major employer in the area today for school. Mostly a "this is what the world will look like and let us get to know your name so when it comes for the internship you desperately need to graduate, maybe we will think your worth the risk."

I have to adult today and it sucks. Also, why the HELL can't women's pants have real pockets? If I get a job that requires dress pants, I may end up shopping in the men's department. My cell phone mostly fits and my wallet doesn't fit at all. I had to borrow a smaller wallet from Youngest Agent. Youngest Agent's friend told me that is what purses are for and I had to explain that I will forget it somewhere. I always do. And there are no belt loops for my keys... stupid dress pants

Yes, this!

 

I recently found a pair at Ross or Marshall's that was kind of a bohemian, flowy pant, and the pants had pockets! It was amazing.  It's an elastic band, so you have to be careful how much you put in there, but it still works for my cell phone. They are out there. You may have to find a manufacturer and find them on amazon or something and just keep buying the same pair. That's my hope anyway.

I am glad you found some pants that work. I am kinda jealous actually. Those sound like I might even be able to use them as dress pants.

 

My problem is I can't even find JEANS that fit right. Either they are half elastic and by midday (let alone day 2 or 3) they are falling down and I am constantly pulling them up, or they don't fit right to start. I know I am fat people, but seriously, what happened to pants that don't stretch to 3 times their normal size. When I say this, I have a harder time zipping them when I put them on in the morning, by the end of day one, I can take them off without unbuttoning them.

The biggest problem I have is that at my size, options are slim. Especially since I require things like pockets and belt loops. I can't wear a belt since I am allergic to metal (tried once, I have scars on my stomach), but I need to hang my keys from work on them and pockets to hold my stuff since I loses purses and I need to keep my phone and wallet on me at work. Oh and anything says "slim" at my size shouldn't be a thing.

I always only buy the same pair since finding a style and size that fits is hard. At this point, it feels more like I am asking for a miracle than pants. I have begun to think World peace is easier to achieve.

So I guess I should do a wrap up.


Wrap up. This challenge when great when I did it. But life kept throwing boulders at me and some hit. So I had multiple periods of "And that failed"
 

I know I feel better when I do the things. I was even losing weight when my steps were at or above goal. I felt better overall

 

But then I would fall off or it would get cold, and the weight would come back and my steps would go down and I would feel worse.


So I saw patterns if nothing else. Not quite as happy as I would want. but its life. Next challenge is going to be restructured a bit. Instead of do it all, its going to be do at least 1 thing in each group. More is obviously better, but at least its something. thats the hope. We will see, there is already one boulder in the air, I am just waiting to see when it lands.
