      Re: AF April Angels

      Snoopster best of luck to you today..agrre with you ..you dont have to work there,but sounds like she has the issues ..not you ..hence why I said can you go over her head?I take it that the plan you are talking about is an action plan and not a performance improvement plan?

      An action plan is a document that lists what steps must be taken in order to achieve a specific goal. The purpose of an action plan is to clarify what resources are required to reach the goal, formulate a timeline for when specific tasks need to be completed and determine what resources are required.

      There are various slants on it but they must be SMART

      Specific
      Measurable
      Achievable
      Realistic
      Timebound..

      anyways have a good one ...dont panic! big hugs

      Morning friends,good luck Star! glad you were able to spend time with your family, we made some sandwiches and took Louie to the park,he was mad cuz the park we took him to was flat,the park his dad takes him to has hills so he can go faster on his little scooter haha,we all still had fun though, hi Mick Lav,Cyn and Star do you take a daily multi? I know I've asked about it before but I was reading about my One A Day and its contradictory cuz it contains both calcium and iron,from what I read iron can't be absorbed if there's calcium involved, plus I read don't take it with milk or dairy cuz then it interferes with absorption, hmmm,confused.com! Wishing us all a happy AF Monday
      I have too much shit to do today and tomorrow to drink

      I'm taking care of the "tomorrow me"

      Off the table no MATTER what.

      Re: AF April Angels

      Good Monday evening folks,

      I had a nice lunch with an old work friend. The two others that were supposed to join us begged out at the last minute but it was fine.
      I got my chicks moved out to the big house this afternoon (in the nursery area protected from the older chickens). They seem happy so far running around & making a lot of noise.

      Star, I hope your day went as smoothly as possible. Thinking of you & all the stress. Stick to your guns, you know I would
      Rain is moving in here tonight & for the nest few days I hear.

      Pauly, Louie looked happy at the park. He's lucky to have you looking out for him.
      I take a women's multi vit for the over 50 crowd - it has no iron. You probably could switch to one of those to avoid conflict.

      Cyn, hope you are doing well & seeing some spring up there

      I need to get back to Curves tomorrow. I skipped this morning to get bills paid 7 some things done before heading out for lunch.
      I feel guilty if I miss too many days, ha ha.
      Have a peaceful night everyone.

      Re: AF April Angels

      Good morning...

      The drama continues. I filed a complaint, they are doing an investigation, but I can go in to work, get on FMLA, or quit. I went back and forth and decided that I will go in today, work till next Friday, and be done. If I am treated with respect and kindness, that is. If the abuse starts up, I am out. Period. I decided to let go of this part of my life and move on. I started to get sick again as I had to share the sordid story over and over, and I have a life to live. This entire episode was so hurtful and ugly, I just want it over. I am doing what is right for me. I have to get healthy again, or I have nothing. I can see that if you are forced to work in a place that is abusive you would get a serious illness. We'll see what happens today, it will be interesting.

      Lav, sounds like a fun lunch! Hope you get to exercise soon.

      Pauly, regarding vitamins, I take a liver tonic pill, vitamin D3, liquid B12 and 1500 to 2000 mg of Vitamin C daily. It works for me. The park sounded fun. We played outside with our grandson in the hot tub, he thought it was a pool and swimming. It is set at 97 degrees just perfect to keep warm. His uncle supervised him. So cute.

      Cyn, shout out to you.

      Mick, I understand exactly what you mean about SMART. That plan had no logical way to measure anything. She was asked to provide specifics, but at this point, I don't care anymore as I am out of there. Why would I want to work for an abusive person who is making me sick. I don't and can't. But, she is being asked to provide information, and hopefully the next person she decides to destroy, will get a better shake than I did. Thanks for your input and support. I can tell you love fairness.

      Off to work, keeping it positive.

      Re: AF April Angels

      Morning all - I wrote a post yesterday, I wonder where it ended up!? Star, you sound like you are truly discovering your way forward and are truly respecting yourself - great job. So sorry that you are feeling sick again -- I hope that this life transition speeds ahead and helps you to free a new part of yourself. A mentor once told me "all growth is from the Known to the Unknown" and I think that is exactly right. Sending hugs...

      Mick, thanks for that excellent summary - I'm cutting and pasting that so I can hold onto it... it's a great action plan for any desired change.

      Pauly - I take a lot of other stuff for my food absorption, but my naturodoc has never put me on a multi... Lav's idea sounds good. You are such a researcher! So great that you pay attention. I made another batch of banana/flax/apple pancakes this morning, yum. That's becoming my comfort food. I must be making progress- granola didn't sound enticing this morning.

      Lav, good to hear that the chicks have made their big move, and are still protected. Also glad to hear that you had a nice lunch with a friend. I actually went to a movie last week with my neighbor - it was good to step away from my desk for a couple of hours. We are washing away in the rain here - flooding down the hill in town, but we are up high, so thank goodness for that. Crazy - humidifier on upstairs, de-humidifier going strong in the basement!

      The news of our country this morning is hard to bear. The proposed draconian cuts to Medicaid in some states (like AZ and KY) are actually making me feel ill. It will not affect me (yet) but the outright irrationality and cruelty of the approach is just staggering. I am reading Hillbilly Elegy, and it's so clear that health and education are the pillars of a functioning society... what darkness lies ahead for the little guys while the corporations make more money and keep it all for themselves? Very , very, very sad today. Off to meditate and to get Mick's action plan applied to political organizing. I won't lose hope yet.
      Off to find some light - wishing all the same, AF.

      Morning friends,Star,I hear you,there's no reasoning with a madwoman! I'm still sorry its come to this but heck as you said life's too damn short for b.s,I wish I could quit my job sometimes-now that Kell works there I get to hear all the backstabbing gossip..are they that stupid to talk sh#t in front of my kid and think she's not gonna tell me? Its nothing too crazy just how I leave as soon as the afternoon shift gets there,don't do towels(again with that nonsense) talk about my coworker,etc I just don't like people talkin period! Interesting on the vitamins,I did read all we need is mag,omegas,vitamin D supplements and the rest should come from food,oh and probiotics,who knows,Cyn,I'm looking for the light today,yesterday I felt a vague sadness for no reason out of the blue,I hate that feeling! What movie did you see? Lav,how's things going with the grandsons? We haven't heard a peep in ages,ugh still tired and hairs wet,off to dry wishing us all a happy AF Tuesday,,Star keep your head up girl!

      Re: AF April Angels

      Good evening friends,

      The heavy rain hitting the roof woke me up several times last night, geez! But the day did shape up fairly well.

      Star, sounds like you have a firm plan in place - GOOD!
      I wish you an easy week, whatever happens, happens, right?
      Glad your grandson liked the hot tub, ha ha!

      Cyn, I've taken quite a few baby chickens pictures this week & FB put a little video together for me, ha ha! They are settled in & happy & the big rain didn't scare them last night.
      We sit up on a hill too so flooding is not usually a worry here either. I made an interesting side dish with millet tonight - gluten free
      I am feeling fairly sure that this political disaster we are witnessing is going to come to an end soon. Bigger than Watergate I am sure!

      Pauly, even though I still didn't sleep decently last night my mood is starting to lighten a little. I think it's just been a difficult seasonal change for a lot of us.
      I haven't mentioned my grandsons because I haven't seen them in over 3 weeks. That is until this afternoon when my son stopped by with the oldest in tow. He was home 'sick' from school today (not really sick). Apparently my DIL is out of town this week on business again. She will even be missing the younger guy's birthday on Thursday. I just don't know what's up with that but we were invited to join then boys for dinner to celebrate the birthday - nice. So, it's nice to have a little something to look forward to on Thursday.
      I really wish you could work in a friendlier environment, those nasty girls would get on my nerves.

      Wishing everyone peace tonight & a good Hump day tomorrow!

      Re: AF April Angels

      Good morning...

      Still fighting this cough. Work yesterday was stressful, my boss would neither talk to me or look at me, very professional of her. I handed in my resignation, just need to get through till next Friday. Boy yesterday was a long day. Trying to feel better.

      Lav, nice you get to see your grandkids, enjoy the time spent with them. So sad that their mother is so irrational, I just don't get it. I also don't get not being there for your child's birthday, that is such a big deal when they are little. Sounds like your lunch with your friend was a fun outing too. We are going to get rain again today, I have my book club tonight, looking forward to it.

      Pauly, sorry you work with negative people, that is not fun. Hope Kell is liking her job there and does well. I have been taking that mix of vitamins for a while and seem to do well on them, till all this stress hit. I even broke out in hives a few times, swelling in my feet, etc., it is weird what stress will do. I had a feeling of anxiety last night, bout my work situation, and had to examine my thoughts. My thoughts were what if...this happens, that happens, all things I do not have control over and I was working myself in to a anxious state. I make myself focus on what we were watching on TV, it was really interesting, and quit giving energy and attention to my anxious thoughts and it went away. I slept well and that was important because I am working towards health. Don't know if that would help you, but I have to be careful where my thoughts go because my feelings soon follow. Hope you have a great day today.

      Cyn, isn't that weird about your post being lost, I hate when that happens. Thanks for the thoughtful outlook on change and going from the known to the unknown, which is really the hard part. Working after putting in notice is so hard, I hate it. Doing my best though. It is hard when life is so unfair, when an unstable person can affect your life and you have to make all the accommodations. On the other hand I am ready to leave due to this stress, so some confusion. I am going through grief, a huge loss. Our country is going through grief and a huge loss of decency, caring for those in need, providing basic health care to all in order to give the super rich even more. I hate 45 and the republicans who are so evil and want more for themselves. I saw that they want again to take away pre-existing conditions, emergency care, and more on health insurance. Then what would everyone be paying for? Oh, for the big companies to have 97% profit margins, just the way 45 and his cronies want it. I don't understand why people can't see what is happening. What movie did you see? I love going to the movies.

      Have a great AF Hump Day!

      Re: AF April Angels

      Morning all -

      Star, good luck this week... that would be really hard, to have to stay in the situation. About the future, remember that your thoughts can help create your new reality (not easy! I am working on that!). Do you know about dream boards and tools like that? Maybe now is the time. But I completely acknowledge the grief that surrounds leaving work that has been a major part of your life -- I've done it, and it's tough, but do-able. Sending you strength this week.

      Lav, what a story about your grandsons... I am so sorry that you don't have access to them, and really sorry for them that they can't have more of life with you. But they are young yet; hopefully this will all turn around in time - obviously your son gets the program! I'll look for your FB chick-flick...

      Pauly, yes I guess we are supposed to get most of our vitamins from the food supply, but I'm not sure how reasonable that is! Especially now with the restrictions roll-back of some pesticides that have been proven to impact our health. Time to save our pennies and shop organic - apples for sure! I am aiming for 4 cups of veggies (measured fresh) a day, though I cook them all - I can't do too many fresh greens. Anyway, that's the goal... thank goodness for zoodles. Good luck!

      The movie I saw last week was 'A sense of an ending' with Jim Broadbent. I love his acting, so the movie was satisfying for me - lots of good acting. I'm not sure the movie would appeal to many - slow moving and gentle - but it was perfect for a taxes-soaked brain break. Hey Pauly, I saw a FB post from a friend that made it seem like the end of Walking Dead was a shocker -- I thought of you and Dill!

      Finally getting taxes in the mail. The CPA will have to file an extension, but at least I'll be able to reclaim the dining room table!

      Wishing all a centered AF day ---

      Re: AF April Angels

      Morning friends, Cyn,I've never heard of that movie,glad you liked it yeah the season finale of TWD was Sunday(insert crying face) and it started off slow but was pretty good, I had to tell hubs to go to the garage cuz he was making too much noise and I was trying to concentrate! Made gluten free dark chocolate cookies yesterday, the recipe has peanut butter in it and I think it kept them a little moister(is that a word haha) Louie didn't even want to help,was sad and surprised Star,what an uncomfortable feeling, ugh,but at least you know you're on your way out,Lav,I'm so happy you'll get to spend time with the boys,seems like your poor son has to be one way toward you when she's around but be himself when she's gone? I hope whenever Brady gets married its to someone cool who I get along with,that kind of drama would really hurt me a lot,anyways I hope we all have a great AF Wednesday
