Countdown to the new job!

Thursday, November 15, 2012

So yesterday I went for my pre-employment physical. Since I'm going to be working for an actual medical office, owned by a hospital, I had to have an actual physical and go over my shot records. Well guess who has only had the shots she needed to be in school and no other ones........ME!! So on top of a normal physical and 10 pages of history I had 5 tubes of blood drawn, a tetanus shot, my first of 3 hep B shots, oh ya and a TB test, which I have to go back tomorrow to have read. Did I tell you I have a fear of needles? Or better yet, I have such a fear of needles that I just had blood drawn for the first time about 2 months ago!!!!

So I successfully made it through all blood and shots with only a few tears! I get to start the job on the 26th so now I'm just enjoying some free time with the kids before life gets crazy again!!

Good night!

Saturday, November 10, 2012

So just a quick blog. Worked my first 8 hour day today (8am-5pm) and tomorrow from 6am to 3 pm. Came home and laid on the bed in tears, really, because my feet hurt and ached so bad. Not sure what the answer is to make it better other than just buck up and deal with it and hope that I either get a better, non retail, job or that I get use to it quickly! Night night spark people!!

    "Tricks" for achy feet: 1-good, supportive shoes. 2-thick, absorbent socks 3-one of the vibrating foot massagers feels good at the end of the day (this time of the year they are easy to find and not too pricey) 4-one of the water bath type foot massagers. You can use hot or cold water. They can be pricey new, but can also be found second-hand, run some bleach water in to disinfect and clean it. Don't use any bubbling products, but non-bubbling soothing foot soaks will work. 5-roll your foot on a tennis ball, it helps massage the aches 6-memory foam slippers-they cushion your poor tootsies.

Any of these things can help, the most important is the shoes. Oh, almost forgot! They make cushioning insoles that may help, too.

If you aren't already watching your salt and caffeine, you may want to start. They can make you retain fluid and that won't help your feet at all.

Hope you feel better soon!

Tired!

Wednesday, November 07, 2012

Well just got home from work and found hubby passed out in bed asleep! It's only 10:30 and that's early for him! He worked hard today though. But now I'm bored cause usually he is up and we watch television or talk and now I'm like twiddling my thumbs here! Oh well I guess I'll go to bed early myself!

Interview today went well. Lasted about 10 minutes and the lady just wanted to followup since she was not present for my first interview. Going tomorrow to take the test to possibly get a job with the post office!

Hope everyone has a great Thursday!

Sick and Tired.....literally!!

Saturday, November 03, 2012

So I'm coming down with a cold! Head been stuffy for a couple days...thought it was allergies....now I'm coughing and sore throat!! My feet hurt and I'm tired! I've got 30 hours at work this week and next, which on one hand is exciting, and on the other, sucks cause that's 30 hours on my feet!!

Enough complaining! I am thankful that we will actually pay bills this week!! And, I've been pretty right on hitting my calories this week, plus all the extra work on my feet, so I'm totally excited to weight myself in the morning!

Well enough of this....gonna take some meds and climb into my bed and catch up on some television!

    I can feel sometimes 4 or 5 days in advance when I am getting sick.... with my health issues, I have become really in tune with my body. I started taking a multivitamin every day about 10 years ago and I have only had the flu or a cold maybe once a year or less since then. Be proud you are hitting your goals though and getting that extra exercise. emoticon

    I hate the way you can't telll if you're getting sick or it's allergy. Guess you know for sure by now. And Feet? OMG, I did something to mine and have been laid up for days. Pulled a tendon or something. But even when that isn't happening, I have sore feet by the end of the day. I did find a show called Reebok realflex. Feels like a glove on the foot. Found em on Amazon. just saying....
