Okay, so the summer was crappy. The new hire I've been training is very loud and brash and she likes to tell off our boss. Not sure why she still has a job there. The lady who returned from the knee replacement, well, let's just say it only took 3 weeks for her to start complaining and starting trouble.

Once I get my month's worth of internship out of the way starting this Thursday, I'm looking for another place in the hospital to work. It'll be 5 years this November that I've been there.

There's only the 3 of us ladies. Both are pretty big girls in their weight and in their mouths. Can't they use their inside voices when they're at work? You know how hard it is to be talking on the phone only to use my finger to close my one ear shut to hear the person on the other side. And they do that just to make trouble. I'll be sitting at my desk and Teresa will answer the phone and just as she's speaking the other lady next to me starts talking at the top of her lungs and I just shush her and ignore her. It's stupid. I'm 42 years old, Teresa is 52 and Gloria is 63. Come on ladies - act right!

And to add to that my marriage has been falling apart. My husband and I have met separately with the church pastor just last week, so nothing new to report. It's just being a stepmom to Sarah, he seems to blame a lot of parenting issues on me when he should have been the one to step in and be the parent. He's also talking to me like an employee of his and it's just not been really good lately. I love my job, just not the coworkers and being around here at home just doesn't feel at home.

My current weight is 202. Going back up to where I first started SP.

Because the two ladies I work with don't do their share of production, I can't take my evening walks and now our work has cut our evening differential, so it's like working dayshift straight pay. I'm trying to bring meals from home so I don't buy at work, but those meals don't fill me up and I end up buying anyway.

Now I've got the latest cold virus going around. I've not had one hurt this bad. it's a hangin' on and I hear it takes 4 weeks to get rid of.

I hope every one of my friends are in MUCH better shape than I am and take care,

Penny Mae

    Oh Penny! I am so sad to hear of your situation with rude co-workers and even more sad to hear that you and your husband have yet to agree on how to deal with your step daughter. And that virus sounds nasty. Drink lots of hot tea with honey. The honey EATS germs. I am praying for your situation.

    Penny Mae,

    Life is tough. If it were easy, we wouldn't want to make ourselves better people. I've had the similar issue of trying to bring in meals from home and ending up buying a meal anyway. One of the ways I've found to keep myself from getting up and getting more food is to bring break snacks — nuts, fruit, etc. I find that when I'm REALLY hungry in the afternoon, I will eat everything in front of me because it's there. But, with packing my lunch and good snacks, I've got the good snacks to help keep me from being a grouch, and yet, when lunchtime comes around, I've got a home-cooked (albeit leftover) meal, and whatever I don't finish, I know I can pack up and take home for dinner.

    Hope everything works out for you. Good luck!
