    Quote from clemmm78
    oh my lord!
    my youngest son returned two weeks ago from his dream trip to greece - and part of the trip was a four-day cruise. it's on the news right now - that ship he was on hit some rocks and is sinking. i just saw the ship on cnn and it is listing to one side. good news is that everyone is evacuated and there are no injuries.
    whoa!

    Quote from bethin
    i thought one set would put a temporary end to the family making too. i told db that i was scared to leave him and his wife alone for fear that i would receive a message saying their expecting in nine months. if they say in 2 years they're expecting again i am not spending the night. this aunt will purely be for fun. no feeding, burping, or diaper changes. i will only hand out ice cream.

    i'm going back tonight.

    lol

    Good morning! :kiss

    Thank you, zoeboboey, for creating this blessed thread.

    I think I'll try to go to bed very soon, as I am having some mild menstrual cramps, and would much rather sleep through them.

    Take care, y'all! Have a wonderful day!

    Thanks for starting the thread Zoe. You must be a night owl like me.

    The 2 babies upstairs are slowly waking up. They'll need to be fed soon.

    Nothing planned for today. Sleep probably.

    Feel better Commuter!

    Morning, All:
    Though I haven't had to deal with menstrual cramps since I went through menopause back in 2001, I've had to deal instead with chronic back pain. I think I'd rather have the cramps!

    Woke up at 3:00, and as soon as I did, I knew I wasn't going to work today. Things have been going from bad to worse lately with this new job, and yesterday was the icing on the cake. I'm constantly getting dinged for things that "I should have known"....and what is even worse, doing them per our department's Orientation Manual which I was told yesterday (and five months later) by my supervisor is "outdated". Huh?? She hands me four pages of corrections on a project which I had spent hours completing and announces brightly: "I'm telecommuting for the rest of the day and tomorrow. Ask S. for help, if you need it". Well, I go to do just that...only to discover that she has left early, too!

    I gave up. I didn't know how to do the corrections my supervisor wanted, and there was no one else around to help me, so I just put my work away and read the news on the internet until it was time to leave. On the way home I wanted to cry, but couldn't. I need this job, but what is the point of staying, if everything I do is wrong? I received my first evaluation in March, and it was the worst one I have ever received in the 38 years I have been working.

    I'm going to start putting back as much of my paychecks as I can, for I honestly don't see myself staying in this job much longer...either voluntary or otherwise.

    CseMgr, I'm sorry things aren't going well.

    Todays a 12-hour day for me. I should be in charge for the first 8.......ugh.

    Good morning. A work day for me. But I'm content. I just got my income tax return back. It's some help with my money problems. Now if my house sells quickly, I'll feel better. I signed with a realtor last evening. Please pray that someone wants my house quickly.

    Thanks for starting the thread this morning, Zoe. I hope you're still snoozing. Have a nice day.

    I'm sorry you're feeling nasty, TheCommuter. I'm very glad I no longer have that particular problem anymore. No fun. Maybe a Thermocare to the area might help. Hope you feel better soon.

    Bethin, you are a wonderful aunt. Wish I had you when I had my kids. And they were only singles. But then my oldest would of been your age and dd is 26. Ds is 18 so I guess it wouldn't have worked out. Ah well. You're a blessing to your family. Snooze well. You deserve it.

    Cse, I'm so sorry you're having problems with that job. It can be nasty starting a new job. "They" say you should hang in there for a year to get on your feet and start to feel comfortable in a new job. I hope you soon get the help and support you need. (((((((hugs)))))))

    Good morning Tweety. A 12 hour day...yuck! And charge? Double yuck. Hope it works out to be an uneventful day.

    To all that follow, have a great God blessed day.

    Morning all!
    Tweety, hope your day goes well.
    Cse, that is discouraging. Is your boss the type you can have a sit down talk with re: the inconsistencies you keep running into? How can you learn a new job if they keep changing what you are supposed to be learning? What good is an outdated manual? Ask for a crystal ball instead, it might prove more useful.
    Commuter & Bethin - rest well!
    Compassion - will say a little prayer for quick sale! How is the market in your area?
    I'm hoping for a short day at work, won't know for sure til later. It's been a LONG week (mock JCAHO survey that might as well have been the real deal....).
    Hope everyone has a good day!

    Cse, don't blame ya for not wanting to go to work. Have you sat down with your supervisor and specifically told her you cannot do your job if you don't have updated manuals and you can't go to someone for help if they're not there! Ticks me off how they're treating you.

    Safe at home right now. Will be going back later tonight to eat supper with the family. We're Catholic and it's Good Friday so we're going to cook us up some fish and chips. Nevermind that I haven't been to church (that didn't involve a funeral or marriage) for so long that I don't remember what to even do in church.

    I'm getting my ducks in a row: my parents are loaning me the retainer for a lawyer. I'm appealing my insurance's decision not to pay for surgery or Humira (which is the same as Remicade, which they paid for but developed a anaphlactic reaction to it). In their letter sent to me they state that Humira is not approved for use in Crohn's pts. Lie. :angryfire FDA approved it on Feb 27, 2007, a month before I asked for approval. I'm sick of this and am hoping a lawyer will help me weed through their crap. I tried calling the insurance co many times but I never get to talk to a person so I leave a message. Eleven messages left, zero returned. Can you tell I'm beyond pissed off? I'm seething mad right now. :angryfire :angryfire :angryfire :angryfire :angryfire :angryfire :angryfire :angryfire :angryfire :angryfire And they call themselves a health insurance company. My a**. :angryfire

    Hope everyone has a great day!! See, I can smile too even though I'm seething inside.

    Have a good day at work Tweety! I take it you don't like charge? Bet you're good at it though.

    Have a great day compassion! It's always nice to get that tax return back. This year was rather large for me so I paid down my bills and paid for my SD vacation with it. Next year, I'll start saving so I can put down a nice down payment on a house in SD.

    Oh Casemgr, that is awful. I do hope things improve, but you're smart to be preparing for the worse.

    Good morning everyone. It's a sunny day, which is a bit unusual for Good Friday. Usually it's grey and cool. Just sunny and cool instead.

    Have some work to finish up, would love to get a few things organized. Got dd off to her trip to NYC late last night. We'll be having a nice Easter dinner on Monday, so I have time to get ready.

    Still waiting for a big cheque from a client and it's frustrating me that it hasn't arrived yet. Of course, the post office is closed today *and* Monday, so it will be Tuesday at the earliest that I can get paid. On the bright side, the agency pays weekly, so there was already a pay this week for that one night I worked last weekend, and I'll be paid next week for the orientation day I did on Tuesday of this week.

    Wouldn't it be nice not to have to worry about dollars coming in at the right time?

    good friday morning to all!!!!!!!

    i hope y'all are having a wonderful day. it turned cold here......in the 20's last night and we might have snow tomorrow. brrrrrrr might just freeze those easter eggs that the easter bunny hides.

    my dh has gone hiking for the day. i hope he doesn't fall off the side of the mountain or have any other mishaps. i always worry when he goes hiking alone.

    i am off today and plan on working on some training material on the computer.

    i know my ds won't be in for easter since he is in boston. don't know about my dd. as of last night she was uncertain. i miss the kids being little....we always decorated easter eggs and they dressed up in their "easter outfits" for church. guess it might be just me and dh....
