What A Week

This might be the most tired I have felt in a while. In an attempt to get to know each other better and to learn to work together well, my new co host Rob and I have been scheduled to work together every day for 7 days straight, and lets just say it has been interesting. There have been a few tears on my part but over all it has been good.

Learning to work with new people is always exciting and challenging. Everyone has their own style and way of doing things. I believe a work relationship is no different then a romantic relationship in some regards (please keep in mind Rob is engaged to a lovely woman, so I mean no disrespect). For example you need to be understanding, forgiving, patient and willing to give more than you take. You need to take into consideration the other person's back ground in life as well. And the most important thing, let things go that are not a big deal.

 Like I said, these last 7 days have been interesting. Choppy, sometimes awkward and uncomfortable but there were a few time yesterday and today that I would dare go as far to say were absolutely bloody brilliant.

I have seen after working together for these last few days, the potential that our boss saw in us together, and it is really exciting. I have only seen it in spurts..but I have seen it.

I have worked so much I have not even had time to write.

I trust with time the rest of the proverbial kinks Rob and I have will work themselves out. I look forward to seeing how well we work together when we are both pressed well.

Today:

I am unbelievably grateful for the kind texter this weekend that read my blog and wrote me the sweetest message this weekend at work. I was so touched by his words that I felt teary. I am and forever will be shocked when people tell me they read my blog. It is the most incredible compliment when someone tells me they used their valuable time to read about me. I will never understand, but I am thankful!

I am grateful for my friend who helped me pick out a pair of new jeans after work Monday. I have gained weight, a lot of weight, and I can't seem to shake it. My struggle with weight is a brutal demon of mine and it never seems to go away. I needed new pants because nothing fits, it is disheartening and I just want to cry. So thank you for helping me pick out some and reminding me it won't last forever. I hope you are right.

As a side note to that weight thing, why can't women see their value is not related to their waist line or number on a scale. The problem with me is when I am smaller, I understand this concept, when I am bigger I forget it.
sigh...

I am grateful for my dear friend Sam, who watched my kids on family day so I could go to work. Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!

And last, I am grateful for Sam and Dean who took me to the PBR this weekend. Not only did they get me tickets for Christmas they both even cheered and clapped when I know they could hardly stand it. You are good friends to me!

I could really tell yesterday that you and Rob are starting to feel more comfortable with each other. Loved the male/female perspective on the driving issue.

Regardless of the number on the scale you are a beautiful human being inside and out. ((hugs))

I read your blogs cause they make me smile and laugh and cry. I read them even when I read hardly anything else because I have so little time to read. I read them because i connect with you on so many levels. I get it when you talk about the weigh coming and going and why it is easy to value ourselves when the weight is less and forget to when we weigh more. I know the connection to past stuff that effects the everyday. And I find myself listening to you on the radio here and there and realizing that I am smiling for no other reason than you and your co-hosts conversations. Your voice on air and your personality is why you have a contract. You are great. And I am very happy for you. Thank you for taking the time to blog when you have so many other things to do. You are my therapy. OK...now I just may shed a tear or two. So before I get too weepy I will stop.
