Realizing The Source of One's Stress - Work

One of my favorite nail polish OPI colors!

First it was grinding my teeth at all hours. Then the mouth sores and the hair loss. Do you think my mind and body is trying to tell me something?

I've finally come to terms that I MUST find a full time job that offers more money per hour and opportunity for pay raises. My husband still hasn't secured a living wage job and now we're looking at a $200 rent increase.

So, I made an appointment with Nevada Vocational Rehabilitation this week.

After orientation, I was then assigned to a Vocational Rehab Counselor. I'll be asking for assistance in securing a full time brick and mortar position or working for National Telecommuting Institute.

I have to say I'm feeling much better these days. I'm even looking forward to interviewing again!

Kelly's Korner - Show Us Your Family

My husband, Charles and I returning from a day of shopping! We met in 1987 at Friendly's Restaurant in Portland, Maine. After 3 dates I knew he was the guy I would be marrying. We were married in 1996, in San Diego and now make our home in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Marcus recently turned 19 years old. He's named after my husband's favorite football player, Marcus Allen. He's currently laid off from his recreation center program assistant position. Kiana came to live with us last summer after her mother abandoned her. She's a true blessing in our household. She's the daughter Charles and I prayed for. She's graduating from Odyssey Charter High School this June.

After a car accident in 2000 and a work related injury in 2003 I still wanted to work. With my husband's encouragement and my vocational rehab settlement check I set up a home office. Since 2004, I've been working at home. Currently, I work for a national telecommunications company in tech support.

We decided to sit together for a family photo last December. From left to right, Kiana, me, Charles, Sock Monkey and Marcus!

Inspirational Bible Verse for the Weary

“He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak”
(Isaiah 40:29, NIV)

I read this verse, on the daily Joel and Victoria Olsteen newsletter and knew the Heavenly Father was reaching out to me.

Young and the Restless - Dad is Mad!

Victor is going down without a fight! He's even willing to partner with Adam to save his company.

I'm keeping up by watching episodes online.

Family and Medical Leave Act - Protecting Your Job

Required monthly doctor visits, therapy sessions and sick days can endanger your job conformance.

My supervisor advised me when I hit my one year anniversary that I should have my doctor complete the required paperwork so that my time off would be protected.

Please keep in mind there are restrictions so read up on the FMLA and contact your Human Resource department for details.

It's Computer Tune Up Time - Rescue It Century Link

Unlike those working in a brick and mortar, having IT staff updating and maintaining your work computer you have to do that.

Once a year I like to have a tune up done on our computers. Unfortunately, I forgot to have it done last year.

I recently noticed that the Internet speed had slowed down while at work. So I decided to give Century Link Rescue It a call. They offer hardware and software installation, home networking,troubleshooting, repair, new computer set up and PC tune ups for an affordable monthly rate. You can also purchase service as needed for less then Geek Squad.

Just think of it as spring cleaning for your computer!
