...and so it ends

...another weekend.

I hate when the weekend is over and I have done nothing. I was shorted a day yesterday by being sick. Today was better but I still feel as though I did not accomplish anything. I think I am still trying to get used to B’s new schedule. I am SO used to us having Sunday off together. I am used to having Saturdays to get stuff done and then being lazy on Sundays. Now that we both have Saturday off together, it is throwing a kink into what I am used to. I did manage to get some laundry done and the bathroom is clean so it was not a total loss. Oh and I watched a movie that has been sitting here for weeks {Martian Child}. So now, we can send it back and get something new.

Getting old has sure been on my mind lately.

What with being exhausted and fatigued all the time and I am doing NOTHING that should be causing me to feel this way.

Then there are the allergies. I NEVER had them as a child. Not until the past few years have I began to suffer. Today I woke up in terrible shape. I barely made it to the store to buy some medicine. After a couple of hours, I started to feel better but it was enough to sap my energy for the rest of the day. Now I am starting to feel icky again and the medicine is supposed to last 24-hours.

Tonight, B made a wonderful dinner. I bit down on the tines of the fork and chipped my tooth. I am upset about it. I would expect this to happen to B but not me as my teeth are in much better shape. As I get older, I am starting to fall apart. I do not like it! Nope not one tiny bit!

Can you hear me now?


It's me.

The one that seems to have just fallen off the face of the Earth. Is that even spelled right? Earth?

I wish I could tell you that I have been extremely busy with the most exciting of things but if I did it would not be truthful. I have been busy but mainly just going to work and then running errands afterwards. Nothing too exciting or out of the ordinary. Well that is unless you consider getting the oil changed in the car exciting.

I am tired. I don't know why I am so extremely tired. I have been getting more sleep than usual but by the end of the day, like now for instance, it is really hard to get anything done. I am so drained by the end of the day. It is really weird. I keep hoping that maybe my body will get into some kind of routine and I will get used to what ever it is and have more energy but I wonder just how long that will take.

Easter was good. Last Easter is when my Uncle passed. This year we all got together and it was good. I didn't really take pictures though. I don't think anyone was in the mood. Who knows...maybe it was I that was not in the mood.

Fridays are lovely

So you know what?

I am dang tired!

This getting up early thing is SO not my style. This past week has been so hard for me when it has been time to get out of bed. I can say that I behaved and did get up when the alarm went off but I was NOT happy about it. Nope! Not one bit! I really hope that I feel better after the weekend. But who knows, I am so far behind in doing stuff I am sure that this weekend will just fly past.

Today I was pretty much all on my own (except for an hour in the morning). The gal who is helping me learn the job will be back at her own hospital on Monday. So now, I am all alone. There is a lot to do but the really detailed part has to wait until I go to the State’s training class. Who knows when that will be. I am wishing already that I had a laptop so I could take it with me while I am out of town. No computer or Internet for a week will probably drive me crazy. LOL! Once I am trained, I can then start to work on the 2-years of backlog that is sitting on the shelf staring at me every day.

At least the job can be entertaining. I tell you…this department is sure full of drama.

This past week, one of the gals walked around and told everyone that on St. Patrick’s day we were to bring green colored snacks. Not dishes or a meal, but just snacks. Someone posted a paper on the wall saying to bring snacks and a few of the gals wrote down their name and what they were bringing. Well that is when all heck broke loose. Apparently, if you put of a sign-up sheet that means it is a pot-luck. There are 2 sections in the department and the other section was not very happy about this. The manager of one section actually had a meeting with the section that posted the sign. I even heard someone mention HR. Then if that was not enough, the gals (who posted the sign) brought it up again the next day. I am so NOT getting into any drama at this job. I have had enough of that to last me the rest of my lifetime. So, I printed my name on the paper and I am bringing green Oreos.

I must be growing up

You know what is weird about getting up super early to go to work? Being tired before the news comes on at 10pm. I am lucky if I can even make it that late. I have NEVER been that way. Even on the weekends, I find myself waking up early and of course, I end up going to bed early as well. This is so NOT the norm for me. This job has changed me and it has only been 2 weeks! I have turned into the husband! This cannot be! LOL! I was always the night owl and I never would get up early unless I HAD to.

The husband has a new work schedule. He now has 2 days off in a row and instead of us spending Sundays together, we now will be putting up with each other on Saturdays. It was weird having him home 2 days in a row. Saturday we woke up early and actually went to Kohl’s early bird sale. We were there at 8am. All his doing mind you. I was shocked. We have never done that. It was fun. Then we went to breakfast, over 2 hours later!

Today I had the place to myself. It was a pretty lazy day around here. I cannot even remember what I did. I can tell you that I did NOT do all the stuff I really wanted to do today. Oh and you know what? I am tired.

Just one of those days

So far each morning I have been pretty lucky in the parking department. Today...not so much.

The hospital is doing massive construction and there is just no place to park. Employees are not allowed to park in the parking garage in front of the hospital and there is just one small lot near the hospital. I had heard about the 'other' place we were to park if this small lot is full but never had to experience it until today.

I had to drive quite a ways past the hospital and past all the construction for the new hospital buildings. I found a spot and got ready for a hike. And a hike it was. Lots of dirt and the level of the dirt lot is higher than the actual area we walk on to get to the hospital. It is so far away there is a shuttle (well a golf cart) to drive employees to the hospital. I was not lucky enough to encounter the shuttle on my way. Once at the hospital, I then had to walk thru the construction site. The walk way is surrounded by chain link fence and leads to the door. It reminded me of all those construction sites I see on TV. I guess that isn't make believe.

The parking was not the only thing that did not go as usual. I was so not paying attention this morning that I left behind all my important papers for work (passwords etc).

Here's hoping that Wednesday is much better. Tomorrow is Wednesday, right?

Today was a good day. If it weren’t for the fact that I had to go in for my second TB test the day would have been SUPER!

It was a pretty chilly and windy today but I only had to endure it for the walk from the parking lot to the door. I did go outside for a bit of a break but was almost blown away so it was a pretty short outside break.

I spent the morning training with Deb and she left me alone again in the afternoon. I finally got access to the servers and was able to get a lot accomplished this afternoon. At least there is one section of the job that I feel confident that I can do. However, it is a very tiny portion and I would be concerned if I was not comfortable with it.

Went to the parents this afternoon after work and got to see their cute little puppy, which has grown so much in the short time since they got it. At least this time I got pictures. I hope to share those soon because they turned out really cute.

Well nothing else exciting to report…well I take that back. Tonight we had Chinese. Yum!!

First week down

Originally uploaded by DreamsOfNyssa
This past week went by very slowly but yet quickly. Each night I would get home and would be so tired, I could not wait until bedtime. I think I slept only because I was so exhausted. By the time Friday came along, I was really looking forward to the weekend. Which is why I find it quite interesting that I am a bit anxious for Monday to be here so that I can do it all over again.

On Friday, I was left alone for most of the day. I had a lot to do so it did go by quickly. I cannot wait until I am more used to the place so that I can feel more at home. I cannot wait to meet some people so that I can have someone to each lunch with or even take a break with. The place is so busy that I am sure it will be awhile before any of that happens. What I have learned is that I am actually going to be THE Tumor Registrar for the hospital. Not just a helper to the person that is there. Once I am trained she will go back to her hospital.

I am not a morning person but if it means that I actually get a chance at finding a parking place in the one parking lot for employees then I guess I will become one. Each morning I have been diligent about getting up when the alarm goes off at 5am. So, on Saturday I was really looking forward to no alarm and getting to sleep in. So why is it that my body woke up at 4:30am? I don’t get it. My body has NEVER adapted that quickly.

I am hoping that once things get settled down I will have time to be crafty again. I did join over at LivePink . Pretty scary since it is more like a MySpace thing. MySpace is okay mainly because it is mostly people that have I grew up with and most I have not seen in over 20-years. But a new scrapping site? I always feel so out of place. I usually end up being the most unpopular person there.
