Christmas 2008

And it was just another indication that 2008 can just end. Joey and I were supposed to head to KY Wednesday morning to go see my parents. Well, Tuesday, Joey's appendix decided that it was more important to cause pain and be removed. So, Tuesday night at about 8:30pm, I brought Joey to the ER. By 1am, his appendix was removed. Needless to say, Joey and I didn't head to KY Wednesday morning. Joey was released from the hospital later on Wednesday afternoon and after trying to find a pharmacy to get his medications, it was Wednesday night. We had our Christmas on Christmas Eve just in case he wasn't going to feel well enough to go to KY for Christmas.
After making sure that Joey was okay, I headed to KY and spent Christmas with my brother and parents. I also called Joey several times to make sure that everything was okay. He kept saying that he was feeling better every time I called. So I left KY Saturday morning to return to NC and now I'm just hoping for a couple of days to relax, a Miami win, and maybe some after Christmas shopping before I head back to work on Tuesday.

Weight Loss Update

I'm down 0.6. I have absolutely no idea how that happened but I'll take it.

I haven't posted in a while and I apologize to those who are regular viewers. I've been going through a lot of crap at work. We have a new person who started on the first. How he made it through the interview, I will never understand. My job deals with crises and being able to work quickly. Almost every time this person gets a call, he's like a deer caught in the headlights. Seems to completely forget what he was taught. He claimed that he knew computers. Well, he doesn't and our work is all on the computer. He received more extensive training than my coworkers and me received combined and he still isn't getting it. My job is one where you basically are glued to the phones waiting for calls and doesn't allow for a lot of flexibility. We are supposed to remain logged on the phones for the calls to come through. Our screenings are only supposed to be 5-10 minutes long. He spends about 20 minutes on a screening and then has to log off the phone in order to complete the screening and still fucks it up. Well, idiot boy decides that on the first day he needed to have his schedule changed so he can go ref basketball games. Um...what the hell is more important-your county job or the games? So needless to say, my coworkers and I have had it up to you know where. We've all approached our supervisor on an individual basis AND ended up having a meeting in front of him sharing our frustrations. Nothing is changing and probably won't.
This has been affecting my health, my sleep, and my home life. I'm fed up and it's taking everything within myself not to snap at this idiot. I had to do talk to him yesterday about something and I was shaking so bad. He actually had the audacity to wink at me after I told him what to do. He doesn't understand that he is messing with the wrong people in this unit. So, Jeremy, don't be surprised if someone calls asking you how I can really be when I'm pissed off.

I have been stitching. I even have a happy dance to report. I've been working on Christmas gifts for my family and I finished the one for my brother. I'm almost done with the one for my father-just need to do the back-stitching. That will be my project for today and to also start on my mom's.

I'm an Official GOV'T Employee

Scary, scary, scary. Today is my hire date for the county. Had part one of my benefits orientation this morning and I haven't had this type of benefits since I was a union employee back in NYC. And that feels like ages ago despite the fact that it's only been a year. I am happy that after this crazy year to have landed a SECURE job with great benefits. Of course, I'm concerned of possible cuts thanks to the wonderful economy but I should be okay.Keeping my fingers crossed.
