I've been a baaaad girl...

Okay yesterday was the first day that I chose not to go to Curves. :( I fear that might start a really bad precedent for me. I've felt like NOT going before, but I always ended up going anyway... I'm afraid that it'll be easier and easier for me to NOT go now. :( And I've promised myself, no matter how much I don't want to go today - I'm just going to have to.

UGH - someone I know is trying to get me involved in his network marketing "plan"... I know that not all of them are bad - but I've been majorly turned off to the idea by an ex-fiancee who was so fanatical about it that it ended up breaking us up... :( My problem is that I'm horrible at telling people "No" (evidenced by the fact that I stayed in Jaycees for so long). :P And he's a client of mine, so I really don't want to "offend" him... I hate this...

I've never done an entry from work before (this is the first time). Things here have slowed only slightly since tax season ended... Sometimes I feel frustrated here - I have a college degree (Okay, so it's not the right one for THIS particular field...which is a whole other story and an entirely different post all its own...) and my securities and insurance licenses, and nearly 10 years of experience at the bank, yet I've become basically a "glorified secretary"... But, hey - it pays my mortgage and bills so guess I really can't complain...

Edited to add: that my job isn't really supposed to be like this - it just sort of morphed itself into me doing all the paperwork and clerical stuff and NOT meeting with clients over the years to help out my boss...And though I love working for him, sometimes I get a little frustrated here...

I'm guessing...

...that skipping Curves on Monday was a bad idea. :( I did go today, but basically sucked wind the entire time! And now I'm paying for it in the leg pain department. :( I'm dreading the weigh and measure thing tomorrow ENORMOUSLY - how embarrassing would it be if they saw me working out there every day and I actually gained inches instead of lost them? :( UGH...

Wanted to apologize for my little rant about work earlier - sometimes I get frustrated because I don't enjoy my job the way I should... I feel like I've wasted my parents' money by getting a degree in something I will presumably never use and I feel creatively stifled at my current job. (Creativity is not really an asset at the bank...in fact, in some cases it's HIGHLY discouraged) ;) But at the risk of this turning into another rant, I'll just say that every once in a while an overwhelming "I want a new job" feeling comes over me and I guess that might explain a little about how I was feeling today.

Non-work related: My Mom's camera is on the fritz. :( She just discovered it as she was packing for the trip last night. Unfortunately, I don't have a small point and shoot anymore that she can use (my old one broke a long time ago) and I think it may be easier for her to buy a new one than to teach her how to use my Canon... I adore my Mom, but explaining technical gadgets to her always gives me somewhat of a headache. :)
