The Not-So-Exciting Times...

Ok, not much is going on here. I'm almost back to my normal sleeping schedule...back to being a nightshifter. I still sleep a good bit, though I think I'm almost caught up. I still don't do a whole lot because those staples in my stomach are still there and it really kind of hurts to bump them.

The gang at work got me a card. I went in to pick up a school candy order tonight and picked it up. Almost everybody signed it...even a few of the characters on dayshift signed it! Awww...I feel loooooved! Well, sort of. LOL! Really, I thought it was nice of everyone. And BOO on those who didn't sign!

There is a good chance the one isn't there anymore! Christina was written up twice - one for looking at other people's time cards [hello - if she wasn't punching them in or out for lunch, she had no business looking at tehm!] and one for goofing off during the Daily. Uhm - nothing wrong with goofing off...you just don't make a habit of it during the Daily...especially when you have a dayshift supervisor on nightshift...especially one that doesn't get around good and mostly sits in the office to keep an eye on things!!! Duh! Well, she apparently was so pissed off about that - that she cleaned her locker out, and tore down her pictures [are we in highschool?] and told a couple co-workers that she was quitting. She has to talk to the Big Boss before she can come back. I wonder what the odds are that she'll manage to sweettalk herself back into her job? Make everyone else out to be the bad guy. Just like Paige, she's really good at that.

I can't even type right, probably those bummed up nerves in my hand. Darn it! It'd better not be permanent...it's my writing hand! All right, I'm done for now.

Call me...Pin cushion

Holy crap....it feels like someone has used my belly as a pin cushion! At least the painpills take away the most. I take it every four hours, and still it hurts a little if I move just right. try putting the cats out when it hurts to bend over! Mom and I had to do it last night b/c Liston was no help at all. He hasn't been all week.

Anyway, my surgery was just a couple of hours. They were able to take the gallbladder out laprascopically...I don't think I spelled that right, but I'm too tired to look up the proper spelling. I'm having enough trouble just spotting normal typos. So, I have 4 little incisions...three along the middle of my torsoe - a total of 9 little staples, and one at the bottom of my bellybutton which has probably about 8 or so regular stitches. I swear that's the one that bothers me the worst.

I've been sleeping a lot. I was up the most today, about 8 hours, before taking a nap. Most of it is just to hide from Buddy, even though he hasn't been too bad. The cat likes to sit in my lap which is ok if she doesn't lay against the belly. Which is what she likes to do. I was so sleepy after the surgery that the doctor had me stay overnight in the hospital, which was ok. I saw the doctor Friday morning, and he says I'm recovering fine...that he wishes all his patients that he operated on a Monday looked as good as I did on Friday. I don't know about that, but that was encouraging. He cleared me to drive again, but I think I'm going to wait a few days.

Our water has been fixed! Yay!!!!! A pipe down near the pump needed to be replaced b/c a hole had rusted through it. It's still muddy though, but that's ok - we have water pressure now! Double YAY!!!! Now we just need to get the furnace fixed...Liston's been too busy working [2 jobs...that take ALL his time?] and can't even buy the part. He already owes Mom money from the week of his driving classes that she took out, borrowed against herself and the morgage...I bet I'll be the one to make up the difference though. I've only got $24 left till next Friday b/c I just paid car/house insurance and food shoppped a little today [which is how I know I don't want to drive yet, boy was I cranky] so I hope that part isn't more than that.

Ok, I have to rest now.

ps ~ I haven't forgotten you Jean-Luc, honest.

6 hours

Well, in 6 hours I must be reporting in to the hospital to have my gallbladder taken out. Since I've never had any kind of operation, I'm a little scared. A little nervous. But it's been aching enough that I just want it to be over and done again. Sigh. I ought to try to get some sleep. But in a minute or two.

I'll be off work at least 2 week...but since I can't lift anything heavier than a jug of milk for 3 weeks I'll probably just take the entire 3 weeks off. Which might be a very nice break! Christina has still been giving me attitude...why? Beats me...maybe because I still have a boyfriend?

Yep, Justin and I are still dating. We had our first argument the other day. Sadly we haven't had a chance to make up yet, but I know we will. Besides, we won't see each other this entire week - he might find out just howm uch he misses me! lol!! I can't drive for a week after this morning, and he doesn't have anything other than his bicycle right now so he can't come see me.

If I'm lucky, Brian and Tempy will have managed to come up with a good enough reason to fire Christina while I'm gone. You would think that sexually harassing the one supervisor would have been enough. The company I work for does not always make sense. Since they're all about saving money, you'd think they'd get rid of the person who continually runs employees away [on purpose!]....Go figure...

I guess. I ought to get a nap. Well, in a few days, I'll have a couple weeks to catch up with blogging.

is everybody?
