Where am I at today.

Well I’m probably close to 190lbs. My face is covered in red blochey spots and pimples. My hair is limp and short because I can’t be bothered to actually take care of it. I feel horrible, disgusting and don’t see what RB see’s in me.

So there you have it…my self esteem is shot. I have to start working on that.

How’s my mood today: Frustrated


Today started out with me taking the day off work. I have on call shifts next weekend so I took today so I don’t have to work 12 days straight. So I send an email to my Team Lead, Director of my project team, and Bcc’d my colleague just so she would know. Then I went back to sleep.

At 9am I wake up and read my work email…Ugh why! I know no matter what there is going to be something in the email that is going to drive me nuts. My colleague has replied to my email stating that she is worried that launch support for our newest latest greatest title (the 900th title of its kind) requires more support and she would like to take her shift back from me for tomorrow. This puts me on edge within minutes. Why? I don’t know! I mean I do know. Its because I feel like she doesn’t think I can do the job as well as her. I think she thinks that I’ll fuck it up.

Where does that leave me:

Well all day I’ve felt shitty. I think that I’m not good at what I do. I think, oh man what it I am terrible and what if I do a bad job responding to emergency tickets that come in. All these things start running through my mind; like what if I haven’t ever done a good job. I must be so stupid.

All these thoughts repeat in my head for hours and hours.

I felt really good around 3pm. I took DG out for a walk, it was sunny and refreshing out there, I cleared my mind. Started to think positively about the next opportunities that lie ahead. I get home and bust up the tunes and start making dinner for my man. I’m having a great time. And then I do the unthinkable. I message my colleague just to confirm that she is in fact taking the shift tomorrow. She is.

For some reason this sets me off again. So I’m in the kitchen, dinner is ready RG, and DG are having fun in the living room and RG asks me a simple question…He asks “what happens when you wanna go somewhere” I don’t really know what he’s talking about. So I say “When, what are you talking about” He then explains once I’m working from home what happens when I want to go somewhere and I don’t have the car, what will I do. I snap “I dunno, what the hell” Then he comes into the kitchen and asks if he should make coleslaw even though I have a fresh salad made right in front of him. Oh I snap even more “WHAT THE FUCK, if you want coleslaw make your coleslaw” then I storm out of the kitchen.

I don’t know what I got so made. He was just asking a questions. I feel like I blow up over literally nothing. I get mad at him when really I’m just frustrated with work.

So what am I going to do to try and get out of this frustration:

I told RG I was mad about work. I started to write about it. And I explained that I should write instead of snap at him. Its a small step. He knows I love him. But I need to stop flipping at him when I’m mad at something else.

To help me focus on the good things I’m going to write 3 good things that happened today, and 3 good things I look forward to tomorrow:

Good things today:

  • Took DG on a few good walks today. On one of the walks a dog got loose and ran up to us, I secured the dog and the owner was thankful.
  • Made a great tasty and healthy dinner for RG and I. Although now I am eating a chocolate roll…small steps
  • Hanging on the couch blogging.

Good things to look forward to tomorrow:

  • DG is always so happy at the office, looking forward to seeing him so happy
  • Seeing RG after work. Its the best.
  • Try to go to the gym and work out for 20 mins…thats a goal!

Keeping positive


A change of pace

November 2, 2015

Its been a long time since I made a post to the blog.

Lots has changed…but I am about to embark in the biggest change ever. I have decided to leave my current well paying, corporate job to work from home as a Project Manager for a company spread far and wide across the world.

There are a few things that I want to capture in my posts on this blog.

  1. I want to track and record any changes in my moods, personal appearance, and metal state after leaving my current job. I want to be able to look back and say…wow I was so unhappy at this time in my life, I weighed a million pounds, and found it impossible to get out of bed. Track the change from leaving a toxic boring environment. I’m hopeful the change will be yay! I dropped some pounds, I started laughing more, I am really loving what I do.
  2. Write about the challenges I am facing working from home. I have always been a very social person, it will be a massive change for me to work from home removed from the world.
  3. Document activities I have done to increase my physical wellbeing, mental wellbeing and how I have reached out from my home to connect with my community.
  4. Document my steps to eating healthier an breaking out of a cycle of terrible eating habits. I want to get back to enjoying eating home cooked meals. I want to treat my man to great food when he gets home from work and be satisfied that I am improving his health as well.
  5. How have I become a better dog mom and loving woman to my man.

Some people you will hear about in this blog.

  • My Dog – DG – A 7yr. Pit Bull with a big personality who is just as much a social butterfly as I am.
  • My Boyfriend – RG – We’ve been together for just over 2yrs. He is the best guy I have ever met. He is caring, compassionate, and the most loving person. He’s my world.
  • My BFF – AB – Friends for the past 4yrs. We are pea’s in the pod (PITP) and even though she has moved away we still find ways to make each other laugh everyday.

So what will my first real post be? Well it will be about where I am currently at with my life.


  • My weight
  • My age
  • My height
  • My current feelings about myself
  • My goals (for my health)

My Current Job (have not yet started the new job I am there until Dec 4th)

  • How it makes me feel
  • What is not satisfying about it
  • What has changed with the company, position and myself
  • What has stayed the same and how that makes me feel

My Family: (Me, RG, and DG)

  • Write something great about what RG and DG did that day, how they brought joy to my day.
  • If there was any challenges that RG and I faced that day. Did we fight, are we having financial worries, typical relationship worries.

This blog is not intended to air my personal grievances, this is for me to see if after leaving my current job I become happy, healthier and a better person to my friends, hubby, and dog.

Can’t wait to get started…but first I gotta take DG for a walk! He is giving me poop eyes

Did it

February 24, 2012

In case you’re wondering it only took me a few minutes to figure out how to change my format.  Maybe I am as keen as a Grandmother or a teen.  


So this is my blog

February 24, 2012


I’ve decided to share with the internet all the greatness that happens to me.  I’ll be sharing experiences from the past and present.  Get ready for some ultra exciting news!  Mainly I’ll be writing about the fun and exciting things I get up to in my spare time.  Like lets take tonight for an example.  I came home from work, cooked dinner, watched TV, fucked around on the internet and now I’m blogging.  My life is shall we say, crazy, off the chain, balls out awesome!  Or maybe not…maybe my life is completely boring and the only real exciting thing I have to offer is that I mashed beans tonight instead of eating them whole and I watched youtube video’s of travel promotions for Alberta.

As you guessed, a catch like myself is single, hard to believe I know, but it’s the truth.  As I start to fall into this whole “single life” business (it’s my first time in ten years :|) I plan to share all my ups and downs with you.  I can’t promise the content will be juicy, most times I will probably talk about my love for mashed beans and Alberta.  I can’t get a cat, I have not hit rock bottom yet.  The other night I did find what I thought was my first grey hair…but it turned out it was just shiny.  I asked my colleague/friend to check it out.  We sat in the lunch room and she combed through my hair like a snow monkey to confirm that it was a false alarm and I will live another day!

I’m not tech savvy enough to learn how to change my page set up so you’ll just have to deal with what I’ve got until I take some time to learn.  Its funny that I’m not good with computers as my life completely revolves around them.  I promise to myself I will concur this hurdle in life and learn how to format my blog page.  Kids do it, grandmother’s do it…I can do it!

Stick around and enjoy.

Stiffcat OUT! (oh ya, as a promise to someone I’ve said I will always end my entires with some lame sign off…that was tonights)
