    You are most definitely not a failure! I hope things get better soon and you are able to take your holiday as planned. You deserve some rest!

      Just catching up.

      You are living in the middle of total political chaos on top of plague chaos, working a job you don't love, and are still managing to keep your cat safe and happy and yourself taken care of. You go to the job even if you don't want to, pay your bills, manage your space, manage to do self care including workouts AND tv binges...

      You might not be exactly where you hoped you'd be by now, and you might not be coping 100% as well as you hoped. But you are NOT a failure. Be easy on yourself.

        I officially gave up one day of holiday, tomorrow, so I can get some things done and there won'tbe enough people if I'mnot there... ahhhh.

          Can I recommend the Self Care workout to you? Following the intended times it's 9 minutes long but you could shorten it if needed. It could be a good one for you when you want to do a workout but have limited time or energy and want to feel like you've done something. It obviously won't fix everything else you have going on but I find it a really nice workout to do, especially with piano music playing, and always feel a little better for it afterwards.

          I hope you're able to enjoy the rest of your time off without having to give it up.

            Thanks again you lovely people. I know I shouldn't beat myself down.
            We had a department fun afternoon today so go karts (in the heat with no spare clothes) and a restaurant (with no spare clothes). I'm glad I brought heavy, dark clothes so my sweat wasn't as visible as it was on others.
            I had a bit of a rough conversation before that about my inability to be assertive with people over the phone so I spend more time on the phone and apparently I'm trying to do too much to help them. I did however got to drive past that person in the go karts, about 3 times. I came in 4th overall, after the only two guys and the new girl who is 20 - pretty good considering that my first try at go carts when I was 10 made me scared of cars so I didn't get my license until I was 27yo.

            When we were there though, I was told I finally could work on this one system we have had trouble connecting to and since I know there's a lot of work on it and there would only be 1 other person working on the calls tomorrow... I basically said "I don't have to go on holiday tomorrow, just two days will fine". Which is a smart move in showing I'm serious, bad considering I really need a break...

            Workout for tonight:
            go karts - it did take 20 minutes so I guess it counts.
            Sitting uncomfortably in a restaurant with people I don't usually talk to and with other people all around...
            Carrying shopping upstairs.
            Carrying old, broken furniture downstairs because tomorrow is pickup day then climbing back up.

                  Finally catching up on your log (somehow I had unsubscribed). Great work on the go-carting. Sory you missed a day of holiday. Don't let your workplace take advantage of you, thinking you're always going to say yes, even to your own detriment. You can be just as serious when you have firm boundaries.

                    Thanks TopNotch I actually volunteered because I felt bad that no one will be here to do it. Turns out it was a mistake, I have to ask tons of questions and I barely did anything. Next week there will be a person here who could help, today is just a waste.

                      Managed the daily workout okay.. so out of shape. 10 diamond push ups - I felt like giving up after the 6th but kept going...

                      Vacation finally.

                      I told them I would waver today in order to work on something new, I was late, as usual I'm ashamed to say but today, the other girl was late too so, instead of an "it's okay as long as you are on your way" I got a "next time get on an earlier bus, we can't have this anymore" which is perfectly understandable but, I gave up a whole day of holiday so, I guess I was expecting a bit of sympathy... that was obviously a mistake. They have obviously overlooked all the other times so I got nothing to complain about.
                      I only answered a few calls today and I did eventually get the basics of the new software so it wasn't all bad. I also found out another no marriage person in the company. They called her in especially since the new girl was supposed to be alone today - the new girl spend some of the day cutting deals with hotels at Prague, managing her mom and boyfriend for various arrangements and still answering calls with abrupt confidence so her missing 30-ish minutes of work throughout the day clearly doesn't count.

                      I have to get back to working out, it's a life savor.
