This has been quite the eventful week around here.

Wednesday was the day I had my first review with my new boss. It went okay, I guess. I will be quite the busy little bee this next year though. Not only will I have lots to do during the day at work [have I mentioned that we are over 2-years behind?] but I also will need to take a few additional Medical classes before next year. I hope to be able to sit for my certification exam in 2009 instead of 2010. Now if only I can find the $$$ to take the classes I need.

That night as I was going to go online to do all the cool online stuff that I do, lightning started to strike nearby so I turned off [and unplugged] the computer. Just in time too it seems as we got hit with a huge storm and OUT the power went. So the husband and I went outside to watch. We were then joined by our neighbors as what else is a person to do when there is no electricity and there is a noisy show outside. Over 2-hours later and the power returned. Just in time for us to get hit 20 minutes later [from the opposite direction] with another storm. By then it was time for bed so we got to fall asleep to the pounding of the rain, this time it was worse than the first storm. Some people were still without power as of this morning [Friday].

By the time I made it to bed, I was not feeling all that great. My throat was on fire and the smoke from the candles did not help much. When I woke up on Thursday, I could barely swallow and there was no way I was going to make it into work. Good thing I had my review the day before. So Thursday was spent at home, in bed, in agony.

That brings us to today. I am still sick. The throat is not as bad but my head is all stuffed up. I am hoping that this is a cold and not a sinus infection. I was able to make it thru the day and was actually more productive today [while being sick] than I was all week. Go figure.

Tonight, I ran over to the scrapbook store. I really don't need anything but the store has been purchased by new owners and there is a sale happening. I also got a special $$$ saving coupon since I spend WAY too much money in that store. I sure do like getting discounts! But since I have cut WAY back on my spending this year, I doubt I will make it into the "special club" for next year.


  1. Sorry to hear you're not feeling so ood hon - that's what happens when you go outside in thunderstorms though. Only kidding! I love a good storm.

    Is there any chance your job can pay for the qualifications you need, since ultimately you're doing it for them?

  2. Well Lis, since rain is pretty rare around here you are probably pretty close to that assumption. LOL!

    I am currently working at a non-profit hospital so it is hard to get them to pay for much. I am actually in process of speaking with the HR department to see if they will reimburse me for at least a percentage. Every little bit helps, right? I think though in health care it is the responsibility of the person to get their own certifications however, since it is a requirement for my job and it has taken the hospital 2-years to fill it, I may get lucky.
