Ever since I have was hired at this job, things have steadily gone down hill in terms of my relationship with my boss. At first, I thought it was going to be a great job, but it did not take long to realize that it was not exactly what I thought I was signing up for. When I was interviewed for the job, my boss seemed to be a very friendly fellow. I think it was just a front though because now I am going to call the employer helpline to see if I can get some information about business laws and employee relations.
I want to know what my rights are in this situation, because I feel like they are being stepped on, and there is no reason that my boss should treat me this way. I doubt it is even legal for him to treat me the way that he does. Continue reading
I like to accessorize my outfits by adding some fine jewelry. Although the outfits look great on their own, the addition of the jewelry creates a complete package. I recently purchased some jewlery from an online retailer. I’m usually wary of online purchases for items like this because I can’t touch them or see them up close. You really learn about the quality of the jewelry when it’s right in front of you. In this case, the prices were so good that I couldn’t pass on making an online purchase.
Out of my recent purchases, I like the bracelet the best. It has some gemstones embedded in it that make it sparkle in the light. While wearing it, I feel like some kind of pricness in a fairy tale. Continue reading
I have been working on ways that I can make some money from home and there seem to be quite a few where you are involved in transcribing audio. For example there are a wide range of legal transcription services where they pay people to listen to court proceedings and type the words that they hear. Of course it is going to depend a great deal on how well the recording is made. If everything is clear and there are no extraneous noises, then you are just going to need to be able to type fast and type accurately. They are not going to want to pay you if you can not accurately capture the events. Continue reading
I had to travel to Singapore for business not long ago. I wish I could have made it a more pleasurable trip, but there was just too much work to be done. The one thing I did refuse to do though was to eat while I worked. I was mostly on my own while there, so I took at least 90 minutes each day to have a delicious meal where I could just relax. My first day there, I did a search for Spanish food in SIngapore because I had a taste for it.
There was a Spanish restaurant called La Ventana not too far from my hotel, so I went there for my first day’s meal. As soon as I looked at the menu though, I knew I was in trouble. There were so many different choices that all looked absolutely delicious. I chose a miniature tortilla for my appetizer. I knew I wanted some kind of seafood for my entree, but I had a hard time deciding between the House Cured Salmon Salad and the Octopus. Continue reading
We give our kids a lot of leeway in decorating their bedrooms. We let them have a little bit of the oddity that most adults would judge teenager bedrooms as looking like. Fortunately, the kids did no go too crazy. Our son did want all the walls in flat black paint with fluorescent things painted on the walls. We let him do one wall and the ceiling. It actually looks pretty cool in black light. We found rugs for sale online that also look super cool when the black light is on. The room glows at night. Our daughter is a little more conservative and only wanted thick pile shag rugs for her room and mauve for the walls. She likes floral themes, and her room is actually very nice. Continue reading
I knew that having a baby would change my life because I had always heard that from a number of other parents. But hearing it is one thing, and living it with a child is yet another. You have to actually go through it to really get it. I found myself drained after just the first three months with my son. My husband has to be up early each day, so I am the one who needed to get up each night to check on our baby at night. It was tiring, so I read baby monitor reviews after receiving advice from other moms. It was a big game changer for me.
Babies need a lot of care every day when they are awake. And needing to wake up each night to check on mine, on top of the times that he woke and needed to be fed, made me a frazzled mess. Continue reading
