fall treats

Today I took my Mama out shopping at 2:30 pm. By 5:30 pm I was an exhausted, stressed out mess.

O great, and now I just watched a commercial, then swung my chair around back toward the desk and *CRACKED* my knee when I tried to quickly push myself up to the keyboard. Ouch.

Work is swinging back and forth between great!! and truely bad.... someone that wants to go back to getting tons of overtime is actively and deliberatly trhing to drive me out. Example:

(I am in the hall working 20 or so feet from the nurses station. She had returned from her lunch break at some point when I didn't see her come back. She is sitting outside of my field of vision.)

A voice: 'Are you going ?'

*me not answering because I had no idea who she was talking to and about what*

A curt, loud voice two seconds later:

'PAM!!!' Are you going to break now??!!??

Frequently, she askes me a question she doesn't officially make sure she addresses me, and then when I don't answer her immediately she barks at me. Literally, because when she does it in front of the nurses aides, sometimes THEY even will sigh and make a comment about her rudeness, so I know it's not my imagination.

This happens a handful of times every single day we work together. I have had enough of her nonsense.

What's the story?

During the past 46 years, I've lived in Connecticut. I've traveled up and around the U.S. and to Puerto Rico, and loved every minute. I've had 4 children who are now fantastically talented adult artists and comedians. I've been married and then divorced and then engaged and then single and finally *big sigh* content. I've grown into a darn good nurse, cook, seamstress, and Mom.

Maybe one of these days I'll get this 'writing' thing down, too.
