TGIT

Thursday, February 06, 2014

Yes folks its THURSDAY and we all know what that means for MOST of us. Actually one of the better places in retrospect that I worked for was a Telecom company in Canada (sadly now a mere shadow of its former glorious self) and the only Nation wide one (contrary to what AGT and Bell etc tried to tell us). Any how I used to get Sunday Monday off and had to work Saturdays which were generally pretty quiet. So I would go in and do what I sort of needed to or wanted to. Of course the odd time the proverbial you-know-what-hit-the-fan and then there was the "pleasure of being PERMANENTLY on call (unless you were on vacation or SICK- of course I can recall getting a phone call when I was sick also- didn't go gee I wonder why LOL). I can remember for years after being laid off (well bumped actually I didn't have a helluva lof of seniority even though I was probably better qualified than most) I would get really stressed (to the point of feeling like I was jumping out of my skin) when the phone rang. Yuck I can still recall THAT feeling (after not working for them since May of 1994) PTSD anyone??

    I worked for the same company (in 411) and I still hate talking on the phone. I've been gone for probably 12 years now.

    I can relate. I worked for years as a mobile trauma nurse or on call for ICCU, CCU, and Dialysis. Hated the beeper. Hated the phone.

    For several years in my mis-spent youth, I worked in a telephone market research centre. I still hate to cold call someone I don't know. Family & friends are fine, but I'd rather go in person or send an e-mail than pick up the phone to make an appointment or order something.

Well thanks for not flaming me

Thanks for not flaming me. The really odd thing was at the time I didn't even know why she was there and I wish I had of as I fancied her IMMENSELY ALSO. It just destroys me to this day that she didn't come back - I am certain I would have dated her and even married her.The really pathetic thing is that Cheryl is ill and her metabolic doctor said her pancreas is in danger of failing . So she may pass away sometime soon. I really have to take better care of myself as I do NOT want my kids to have NO parents.

    You really do need to take care of yourself. My hubby has lost both parents and I have lost my mom.

Its funny how at least in my experience things I cannot EASILY change and that I thought I had forgotten about and dealt with in the past can comeback and bite me in the rear end. Lets just say its too bad I didn't have a time machine to go back to 1976 when a girl I went to junior high and elementary decided to go to the public high school but came to MY high school to see ME as she was interested in me but I flubbed it up.I was SO BUSY trying to find a missing bus pass and being stressed out over being in a new school that was NOT across the back alley from my parents house . I AM SUCH A PILLOCK!!! SIGH. I thought she was out of my league. BIGGER SIGH . Yeah I was thinner THEN. MOAN . I MISS YOU SO MUCH MARION!!!!

    I know you meant well and I appreciate what you said but I am not sure it makes me feel any better about it.

    It wasn't until just last year at age 60 that I found out a girl I had a crush on in high school had a similar crush on me. I now tell my boys to go for it -- the worst she can say is "No" and while it is disappointing, it's better to get a "No" than to miss a chance at a "yes".

And I only found out about a missed "yes" 43 years later. (That's ok I am married to the best "yes" I ever found.)

    Unrequited love. I had guys tell me when we were grown that they had a crush on me but never said anything. I told them they should have said something, I would have went out with them. LOL.

Stirring it

Sunday, January 26, 2014

I just left a comment on a blog about the superbowl and I am sure I managed to piss off a bunch of people. OH WELL I guess some people cannot accept the fact that football as played in Canada is a technically HARDER game. Our fields are 110 yards long and there are only 3 downs.

    I know nothing about football, I'm a baseball girl myself but, who gets so excited and upset as to be angry about a game? Fans yes, maniacs no!

    You won't pee me off as I don't care about football. LOL. I got it out of my system when I was young and when I was a cheerleader for one year. Got that out of my system too.

    here is my definition of football, but keep in mind that my youngest plays it and gets really mad when I say it. I do not understand why a bunch of grown men want to fight over one ball just slap one another's butts, all they need to do is each get there own ball and admit they like slapping other men's bottoms for sport!

stuff

Thursday, January 09, 2014

Just went back to my gp for the THIRD time for my cold/ asthma. Finished my antibiotics yesterday still felt like crap got a prescription for 3 prednisone - one day rook one already not sure if its really working, The pharmacist said I had to go back to the doctor if it doesn't work. All I know is my chest is still burning and tight. I guess thats the punishment for staying at work and NOT going to the doctor when I should have and then suffering through my vacation. I guess doing woodwork while sick didn't really help either. I wanted to finish a gift Christmas Eve.

    I think he was worried I had a secondary infection as my lungs were so tight. He isn't huge on lab tests except for my physical (actually I wish he would have put me on the nebulizer but that hasn't happened in years- he just want me to double up on my Symbicort- which I think didn't work as great as my pulmicort and bricanyl).

Thanks

    Did they do a sensitivity and culture on you? Antibiotics don't work unless it is bacterial and most infections are viral. If it is bacterial the C&S will tell them what antibiotics actually work. I hope you feel better soon.
