  • Congrats on the job! I am so glad you like it. Have you come up w/ any crockpot ideas? I am cooking meatballs wrapped in cabbage leaves right now. I meant to rice cauliflower to put in the meat and forgot so we will see how they turn out. You are doing great!! Keep movin'.

    • In regards to crockpot meals, I have taco meat cooking in it for tomorrow night now. I found a recipe for Sour Cream and Bacon Chicken I may try out Thursday. I just need to figure out something for Friday and Saturday. I've got about 2.5 pounds of ground beef left. I'm a shitty planner. Really terribly shitty.

      I like the job other than coming home exhausted as hell. I don't like that feeling at all period. It makes me feel depressed. I like this job, but I worry about it when I'm not there and I know that isn't good at all for health. They expect perfection and I've done so well thus far, that it makes me worry about how long I can keep this up or when I will screw something up.

      • You have to relax. I know that's easy to say and much harder to do but not only is the stress bad for your health it will cause you to make mistakes because you are wound so tight. So far you are doing a good job, you know you can do this. If you can try to walk in the afternoons. I know the weather up there is lousy but as much as possible, being outside helps with the stress. Hang in there. You are gonna be fine!

          I was planning on going out for walks on my lunch. I get an hour so I could get away with a 20-30 min walk easily. As long as its not raining out, that is. I'm just so scared about screwing this up as so much rides on this. I have a long history of screwing up things(seriously ever since I was a kid). I'm not good at the whole positive mental attitude thing. Never have been. My husband likens me to a half of a glass of a glass half full chick.

          • Hell, no one is good at ignoring Nagnus, she's a loud, pushy bitch. She's like a puppy, you just correct and redirect, correct and redirect. I am learning to trust and stop controlling and worrying, it is helping me TONS. You'll learn that job in no time and be rocking it out. Taking ownership and wanting to do a good job are great, now trust that you are a captain and can handle whatever this ocean throws you! Your mistakes have made you an experienced captain of life is all!

            • It's funny, at the end of the day, my supervisor and manager both said the same thing to me, "you're doing a really, really great job. Are you ok?" I'm taking this to mean that not many do well in the beginning. The day flew by and I was happy.

              This is what I made for dinner and OMG, amazing! LowCarbCrock.com: Low Carb Crock Pot Taco Meat (From Frozen Beef & No Browning Required).

                Sounds like things are going well. Did they expect you to resond with, "Oh, I am doing well? F' that. The mediocrity starts Monday."

                • Geo, I know that screw up feeling all too well. I'm also a screw up. I think I sometimes miss the finer details of things and when things become routine, it gets even worse.

                  That recipe looks delicious! Did you have to break the burger up during the cooking process? There are no instructions regarding that.

                  • @jenn, no need to break it up until after the first cooking.

                    I got a call from a company about setting up an interview and I'm going to call them in the morning and see if I can get one Monday. It's in health insurance which I enjoyed and its guaranteed 40 hours where I currently am not guaranteed this and probably a higher starting salary. Oh, and no weekend hours. I'm not sure if I should let this new company know that I am currently working or say I am working a temp job. It's a little white lie.

                      • I don't think you should say anything about where you're at now unless they specifically ask. If they do, tell them you're still considering your options.

                          I agree, I think it's best to avoid lying in this situation. My dad keeps his resume up all the time to look for better opportunities. He's the kind of guy who looks for different jobs periodically anyway, just likes to change things up. It's gotten harder as he's gotten older because, despite his experience, they want fresh, young kids straight from school, even if they're not as adept as he is with coding and such. "Considering your options" sounds like a good way to say, "I'm definitely interested if you make this worth my while" without being too forward or making it sounds like you HATE your current situation.

                            • They didn't ask when I scheduled my interview. It's Monday at 10am. I'm excited for it. I still need to update my resume' with my end date from my last job and I'm not listing my current job on it. I haven't been here long enough for it to be added. Clint's good with me for going for this one. I'm just grateful they were able to get me in on my day off.

                              • I forgot to add that I received an email from a temp agency about a help desk position at Chase. What made me laugh is the guy who sent it told me that he found my résumé by doing a key word search. I think his search was a bit askew just based on the fact that I have no tech experience whatsoever. I kind of laughed when I read the email.

                                Not sure if I noted this anywhere, but the company I am interviewing with, I applied there while I was still at the old job.
