Today is my last day in my work detail. I already have an intense project lined up for when I get back to my old job tomorrow. Yay.

I thought I was feeling this way about today,

but I must be nervous about something, because I’ve had bad dreams about work the last three nights. It’s probably the dread of going back to my old job. I need to either work hard at finding something positive and good in each work day, or work hard at not caring that I don’t like the work I do. I am not sure which would be more difficult.


My team is doing a presentation for our branch today at work, so I had my friend Maria make cookies of the sculpture in front of our building, to share at the meeting!

Hopefully munching on those will keep people awake while we present, ha!

    “I need to either work hard at finding something positive and good in each work day, or work hard at not caring that I don’t like the work I do. I am not sure which would be more difficult.” <— that describes my situation so well. I'm more the latter most days. Good luck. Those cookies look so good!

    I think it’s possible to find something positive AND not care that you don’t enjoy your work on a daily basis. I’ve been happily doing that for years now 😉

    But really, I hope that you’re able to find something positive out of this whole situation eventually – you got to do work you did enjoy again, and maybe another position will open up that would allow you to do the same? Maybe you can apply some of that to your current role?

      Yes, it was definitely a positive experience to do something different at work, and discover that I can enjoy work again, and am good at leading a team! I am not sure I can find a way to force myself to like my previous work though. It’s changed so much since I’ve started (which is fine), away from my interests and training. Oh wells. I am a grateful to have a good job with benefits! Just didn’t realize before that I could enjoy it. Ha.

    I hope going back to your old job is way better than you anticipate 👍🏻

    Those cookies are gorgeous! What a thoughtful treat!

    I hope your old job goes well – not sure I could take all the switcheroos you seem to get with your workplace.

      Thanks! They were a hit!

      And thank you, I hope so too! I try hard to go with the flow but when things have changed so far from something I enjoy doing, it’s hard!

    Blergh, it makes me sad that the end of this detail was such a dragged-out disappointment because it started so well and you were so excited about it. How do you think you’ll work on being positive/not caring? Do you have any concrete ideas about it?

    Even when you’re like “UGH” or “meh,” you’re still so thoughtful with those amazing cookies! I’m glad they were a hit.

      Thank you for sharing my sadness. I was SO hopeful in excited in the beginning when there was a chance I could apply for the job later. Even yesterday, everyone was all “we don’t want you to go!!!” Sigh. Anyway, my plan right now when I am feeling stabby is to try to write down something I am grateful for about work, or something I like. I am starting there.

      Thanks 😀 Wish I could share one with you!

    Oh, I’m sorry you’re having a bummer of a time at work 🙁

  7. I really hope things go as well for you as they can back at your old job, or that you’re able to find a way to get through it and be happy in the mean time. Disliking your daily work is such a drag on the rest of life 🙁

    Those cookies are beautiful! I’m so impressed by the frosting!

      Thanks for the well wishes! My first day was CHALLENGING since the project I was assigned is “RUSH!!!” but no one wants to talk to me about it or give me info. Ha. Not much has changed there 😉

      Thanks! Maria does such a great job!!!
