this and that

November 4th, 2018 at 04:15 pm

I am getting restless not sure why. I have been trying to stay super busy to keep my mind occupied as the anniversary of my mothers death fast approaches.

My house payment for house my daughters family is living in is going up, a combo of property taxes and an escrow shortage last year.
I have let them see the notice thinking they would clue in that the money they are paying will need to go up too. They seem oblivious and DH wants me to speak up and tell them it is x amount more. I think it should be a joint discussion but he never takes up the landlord type problems.

I am getting ready for other items like heat to go up as it cools off. Now I am thinking this change will make me look over all of budget since often even if daughter pays more, they often are not always on time. For example they deposit the money in my account and it is now a few days into the month and they have yet to deposit while the auto pay comes out every 1st of the month.
The few times of them paying late I spoke of in the forums before, it simply an inconvenience not really costing me but it is irritating.

I thought they would be better after they looked and priced what moving would cost earlier in year and found most places not even comparable to the deal they have with me. One close house to the area mine is, but with 2 less bedrooms is renting for 900 more a month then I have them pay.

I have been thinking that savings is like diets you have some wins and losses and days you do not feel like doing it at all. I have been on a plateau for months now not feeling like I was making any difference at all. I know the sidebar says I am, but it just seems like slow motion.
I am thinking it is because I feel like time is moving too fast I wanted car loan gone and be able to throw more money at IRA and other things.

new week

September 24th, 2018 at 05:56 pm

So today they announced we have mandatory OT yet, I was the only one that stayed the time. I guess I am just too new to see what emails and rules we must follow. I hope I get enough done tomorrow that I will be able to leave earlier then today the difference in traffic made communte home twice as long too.

When I got home DH was late too. He had not opened his mail but did and found the same letter assigning him a doctor in a different city then we live in.
He immediately called the insurance company. I really feel bad for their staff as they tried to spin this insane ideas into something reasonable...…... the young man finally gave up with the spin and said he spends eight hours a day with people frustrated and mad about these stupid programs trying to force people into medical tests and going to doctors they would NEVER consider on their own.
So we opted out of them sending us any of this "helpful suggestions" in the future. LOL
How SAD and miserable of a job that must be to hear complaints all day long. At what point will this company wake up and see the damage they are inflicting on themselves.

working on my patience

August 7th, 2018 at 05:33 am

I have come to realize that my level of patience seems to be at an all time low. Maybe that is why the job with nothing to do bothered me so much.

I went in on yesterday and started on the project still with a bit of work from Friday. in about an hour the supervisor came in and told me to start the work left over. Well at that point I had finished the 2 items she listed and one other item, I suppose she was giving to someone else. I double checked the work and then sent the email saying A,B,C was done. her response after letting me sit there for weeks, was to check with other departments to see if anyone needed help and since they did not told me I could leave for the day if I wanted.

I left and did a few errands I have put off for awhile. I will go in today but doubt there is anymore work I hope they just realize that and let me call it done as this is the last week of my notice.

I really hope new job is much better but have doubts since most all businesses I have gone in etc never show any speed beyond SNAIL.
I recently opened an account at a CU partly because I needed a closer option for banking and because they had a promotion deal that paid great interest and a bonus for opening account not only for me but for son who referred me.
The day I went in, the line for service was increasing and was not being addressed very fast. I noticed some employees who usually did things like mortgages probably could do things like open accounts but instead sat there talking with feet up on desk.
Also a recent trip to DMV was also poorly run as most other locations streamline processes by taking the shorter tasks first finding if they can speed process up by answering questions before sitting there for hours to be told "oh we need this document instead" this location supervisor was actually IMO slowing things down.
I was annoyed but everyone around me seemed less annoyed and just resigned to poor service and slow work.
How do I learn to accept poor performance and a simple trip that should be 30 minutes taking 2.5 hours??
I really do not feel it is me because I have seen and worked in situations where when faced with a large influx of customers of work you prioritize and try to adapt not just look up and think whoo hoo OT work at the same snail pace.
When I finally got to the counter the person helping me wanted to chit chat like seriously do you not see a room full of people waiting???

one step forward... two back

July 25th, 2018 at 05:24 am

So as an update I recently decided to pay as much as possible to car made some good progress as shown on sidebar. I also opened a new account that is paying a promo rate of 6% on savings and 4% on checking so I am going to move some from regular account over to new one to make the interest. ( my normal bank has no close branches here so I wanted an option if I need to deposit cash or checks).
This did help with the dissatisfaction with new job until I sat for 5 hours AGAIN yesterday. It is exhausting and frustrating to be so bored and pretend to work and look busy. Yes I asked sent 2 emails to supervisor for work even went over to her desk. just told she will send me a project. I want out and no progress on car or saving money can fix that. I am sure if I quit temp agency likes to punish ppl so they wont consider placing me until this contract would have been over... if I stay this company wants this to turn into a fulltime thing prolonging this is helping NO one I am miserable/ they are wasting time training me and temp agency needs to find them someone who can sit doing nothing and be ok with that.

update on dog

July 17th, 2018 at 06:23 am

So the heavy meds given to him by vet did nothing to improve his situation just knocked him out. He has not eaten much even tried to hand feed him several times.

DH took him back had the X-rays done and got a new special made medicine ( at $80) to try had to wait 4 days for this. Had to wait all Friday and weekend before someone could READ the x-rays and they show them NOTHING. They said for his breed ( life expectancy is about 12) and guesstimated ( 10+) age hips back etc looks good. they suggested an MRI.
DH is going to ask about that cost.
I am just honestly furious at the total lack of either give a damn or customer service in finding out what is wrong with this dog. This is a highly recommended and reviewed vet clinic in this area. This area SUCKS NO one expects good service out of anything. no work ethic no customer service and no sense of URGENCY about anything. Seriously sick of this place want to move back to my original city. ( I have been here 5 long years hating most of it)
Even at work on Friday the IT guy told me my new desk was all set up (I had been sitting in someone else's desk while she was gone to be closer to seasoned employees for questions) went in Monday NOTHING was set up and I got to sit 4 hours waiting for access. How these places pay ppl to just sit is beyond me. I wanted very much to just go home. The gross incompetence that is accepted in everything here makes me CRAZY.
