Check your facts and step right

I am usually a calm person. I take a lot and say nothing. One thing that will always get me going is when you question my integrity. If you do that you better come correct.

I take pride in my ability to do the job assigned to me whether I like it or not. I do not love this job but I know I can do it and I do my best.

Today Buddha got an email from S. asking why no one was there to answer the phone on Friday December 21 @ 3:30. A call went to overflow and the overflow person ending up making the appointment for us. This was prompted by Rob who sent the question to S.

Now we all were at work and on the phones Friday. There were no overflow calls. So she responded that we all were on the phone and did not leave until it was our scheduled time to leave.

Monday December 24, Dr C gave us the all clear at 1:00.

Buddha checked through her email messages and said that there was an over flow for Monday at 3:30 not on Friday and that Rob had the wrong date.

Dr C, then call Rob and reminded hi…

just another day!

Friday we received a get out of jail free card and was able to escape the emprisonment of work at 1:00 in the afternoon. Which was great I had guest coming to my house for dinner because My little girl is coming in from KY. It started out as a small dinner party and then before I realized what I was doing I have invited all of the family who did not celebrate the holidays. I knew they would be busy preparing for December 25th.

Needless to day everyone showed up. My father in law fell down in the driveway and roll all the way back to the street when TAG stood. It was the weirdest thing to see. I just happen to look out the window to see him do the tuck and roll. I guess he is so used to falling that he just goes into a tuck and roll instead of bracing for the fall. He was in such a hurry to show that he could make it up the driveway without any help that he fell. TAG said that he was on his day was on his way up the drive before he could even get out and when he did get out all he could…

what looks like crazy on an ordinary day.

I got up showered and dressed no time for exercises I had to make a mad dash to the bank to avoid a 33.00 overdraft charge on .78! This will be my morning exercise. Its raining! Cold rain did not make this enjoyable exercise in anyway. I couldnt find the 5.00 bill and you can't or shouldn't deposit coins so I deposited 1.00. Just as I completed that that called me to see where I was. By the time I explained where I was and that I was trying to get my bus to get to work on time. I looked up to watch that same bus drive away before I got to the bus stop.



I told him that he need to come and take me to the busway. Why? Because if I have not been talking to him I could have made it on time. It is impossible to carry my bag, put away the atm card and carrying an umbrella and run to a bus stop at the same time. TAG came along and drove me to the busway.



I hate the busway. Lots of people crowded under a shelter that is way too small. Only to climb on a bus the does not have enough seati…

Spectators point of view.

Thursday after work was the typical office party. There was food and drink and not much else. All they did was talk, eat, and drink. Oh yea and go outside to smoke.
Some got drunk but I think that was the plan to begin with.

I sat with my coworkers and friends and talked had one drink and as soon as I had eaten I was ready to go. So many people I did not know. So many people not introducing themselves just staying in there own little comfort zone. I had planned to go around and talk to every one but after getting there I was so ready to leave? The place was too large for the amount of people that were there. It was kind of fun.

The following are some of the things that happened while I was gone on vacation. The names have been changed to protect the stupid.

Friday I was not at work but a party was planned because Michelle, one of the clinical staff, had found a new job and was leaving. The party cake was brought out and the gift given. Then Michelle comes to the realization that…

Don't sing Praises Just yet!

On Monday November 26, 2007 I went to the Dentist. He was going to finally do the root canal that I needed. I say finally because of scheduling conflicts this was my third attempt to have this done. If it was not done this day I was going looking for a different dentist.



The procedure was done painlessly and everything felt great. Tuesday morning no swelling very little pain. I took IB 400 mg. Wednesday once again no swelling very little pain. Thursday morning I thought it was starting to swell. I convinced myself i was being an alarmist and nothing was wrong. As a matter of fact I thought I should sing the praises of a Dentist who could do this procedure with no complications what so ever. Friday, PAIN, SWELLING. What is going on why is this happening now it should have happened Tuesday not Friday. Saturday, I looked like someone punched me in the face. No bruising just lots of Swelling and Great Pain IB 600 mg every 4 hours. I wrote down the times so I would not over medicate myself …

conversations, Lunch, and bathroom visits

What do these have to do with each other. They all take place at work and can be used to cause unnecessary problems.

While at work I often conversate with a friend. This does not interfer with the preformance of the job. It gets done.

Respecting other people conversation is key in working in a close environment. To stay out of someone else's conversation unless invited into the conversation. This is essential.

If you overhear a conversation that has nothing to do with you , STAY OUT OF IT.

LUNCH

It is necessary to respect each other time to have lunch. When it is time for someone to go to lunch you do not leave your post under the gise of going to the bathroom. Also if it takes you 15 or more minutes to return from said bathroom visit, you are sick GO HOME! Noone else wants to catch your illness. If you are not ill. Save the type of bathroom visit for your lunch break.

Bathroom visits

It was already detail in the above.

Oh well. We will have to deal with all these problems in a…

Another Day

No matter what happens in life we hope and pray to live another day. No one I know has died recently. This is not about that. Is is about surviving the troubles and stresses each day.

Another day promises something better. Today could be so terrible that we cannot wait for another day.

Its like a new begining only instead of a new year it just a new day. An chance for things to get better just because we were rewarded with life another day.

Another day could mean that is just like any other day. "Yesterday the grass was green today is just another day."

Somethings do not change. Regardless of what we do we cannot change them. Noone wants to change the grass but even those who do cannot get the green out of grass.

So what do I mean by another day. I have not got a clue. It was something that popped into my head so I decided to blog about it.

Hopefully we know the things we can change so we do just that, and the things we cannot. We ignore.

PROJECT RUNWAY SEASON 4

I have never been devoted to any television program. I am loyal to some and other I care less about. But even the shows that I watch loyally can be dismissed without a second thought. But I am devoted to Project Runway.

This show starts out with 15 designers’ ends with 3 who will design 12 outfits for a Fashion show at Bryant Park in NYC. The judges, Michael Kors, Nina Garcia, Heidi Klum ( who is also the host of the show ) And a guest judge which changes each episode. And we must not forget TIM! I love the way he talks.

So far 2 episodes in and I can’t wait for the next one. I know I have watched these 2 episodes at least 6 times (Thanks to BRAVO TV) and each time I see something a little different.

I have been a seamstress of sorts for over 20 years. However any photos of past accomplishments were lost in a fire of the family home several years ago. I have contacted several people that I have made gowns for in the past in the hope of rebuilding my photo album.

I am reminde…

Family Traditions

Every family have traditions. Some revolve around pagan holidays or worldy traditions and some happen by accident.

One year for what ever the reason we all found ourselves over my cousin/Aunt Polly's house, since we were all together and everyone was off from work or school the next day some one suggested " lets watch movies all night".

Who knows, it could have been a challenge to see who could hang (stay up all night) and then go out in Field service the next morning. So we went out and rented movies and stayed up all night watching movies and eating snacks.

The next morning, Bridget would get up and go out in field service the next morning, of course she is one of the first to fall asleep.

Those of us who did stay up all night continued watching movies into the next day and then would go home around 3:00 or 4:oo to sleep because we had to work in the tomorrow.

We have been doing this for at least 20+ years and none of us can remember what started this family tradition…

In my own little corner.

As I started to think about writing this I was reminded of my favorite part of the Cinderella play that aired on TV when I was a child. While her stepmother and stepsisters were getting ready for the ball. She sat in a little chair and sang a song of all the imaginary places she would go to and all the things she would do while sitting safely all alone in her little corner in her own little chair.

November 8 is the 4th anniversary of my marriage to Tag. Three months before this date we made our plans, first of which was to make sure we had to whole week off from work. We talked about the places we could go, the people we could visit, the things we could and how much it would cost. Redid the budget so bill would get paid and we could still vacation.

We talked about visiting Terri in KY. She had been having some difficult times being alone and I just wanted to reassure her that she was close enough for us to get to her and just hang out with her for a couple days.

We talked about vis…
