wow do I ever need this again.

The problem is it's a teensy bit pricey .... and I'm in the process of buying a house.... so it will have to wait.

The OTHER problem is that I'm getting super stressed out and it's harder for me to keep my mouth shut and just put my head down and do my job since they're sending idiot co-workers down to my side of the building. I'm older and maybe it's the menopause or maybe it's because these are truely the most selfish lazy people I've ever had to deal with, I dunno.

I'd like to wrap up the entry with something hopeful but I just don't have it in me.

HBW: Autumn in April

Azaleas are nearly perfect. These look a bit fantastical in the photo. I know there's nothing really FANTASTIC about an azalea bush and in fact I won't have enough room in front of the house to fit one, but it's still fun to imagine one there.

I guess maybe we'll just need to stick with another favorite, hostas.

I love this photo because it looks 'hot' and 'busy' as well as containing interesting subject matter.

How funny is that? A hot and busy day on vacation sounds like heaven, yet all the while I complain about work being always so 'hot and busy.'

I totally envy those sweet soft curls she has. His too come to think of it. He seems to be saying " Hey. Come on over and we'll take turns setting Ginny's dolls on fire or something" And she's all like "Ohhhh, *promise?* Then... then can we set you on fire cuz you're made of paper, remmmmmember?"

isla tortuga waiting blues

gosh i need a break.

every single day at work is bringing more and more difficult happenings.... for example, the last day I worked I was told that corporate demands my resignation from my part time job at the sister facility in Mystic. Because:


'the possibility"??? Ok, at the beginning of this year, my boss had no problem paying out roughly 100K to other people in overtime, of which 435.00 went to me. The main bulk of the money went to a handfull of folks, and I just happened to be offered a chance to pick up time TWICE. Ahha, 16 whole hours. Oh and I am totally allowed to pick up a shift at my home facility, no problems with that. The only thing is they never offer me the time because the scheduler is too busy giving the hours to her favorites.

And now that the economy is in crappy shape and I am gong to have trouble getting another part time job, I am told that I must resign from the one place that can throw me a couple of shifts a month if I'm lucky?

I'm ready to go to the press.

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.
