Well....my permanent job went temporary today.
It has to do with the legalities of the last receptionist that they laid off, and hired me instead of offering her the old job back. So in order to get around that, the president of the company talked to me today and his lawyer suggested they bring me in through a temp agency. My pay is the same....it just means I'll be paid through the temp agency for 90 days and then if they like me, I'll go permanent after that. I'm not worried about it really....it just worried me a tiny bit because I have to get an apartment at the end of August/first of September, and it would have looked MUCH better on the rental application if I had been at a permanent job for 3 1/2 months instead of only 1/2 a month, lol. Oh well....I'm still very thankful to have the job in the first place. According to the statistics on the Dept of Labor website, the unemployment rate here in Georgia is 10.6%.....it's still going up, so when they tell you on the news that it's getting better....don't believe them, lol.
One of the girls went to the food court at the mall today and brought back lunch for everyone. I don't even want to talk about the food for the rest of this week, so I think I'm going to stop. When Staci is gone on vacation next week and I have my desk all to myself, I'll feel much more settled....but this first week is just stupid in regards to the eating. I'm going to make SURE to spend ample time this weekend really thinking and planning out my meals for next week.....breakast, lunches, dinners & snacks. I'm also joining the challenge at Kandice's blog "No More Chunky Dunking..." that starts next Monday. I can't remember what all of her rules are off the top of my head...but for my own personal sanity, I'm going back to taking pics of every calorie I put in my mouth. I know I said I wasn't going to do that this month....didn't want to bore all of you with every apple & banana....but I need to do it and that's that. This week has just been a disaster....right on the heels of the beach disaster...and I'm getting fatter by the day. So....be prepared to see food pics starting next week. It's time to take back control over the stupid eating choices. 'Nite friends. :)
