I woke up entirely to early this morning (3:30 am :wtf) with the incredible urge to do one of those "year end posts" :confused11 but no idea what exactly to put in it...
then I make the mistake of taking a stroll through my archives since January...(big mistake, had forgotten how boring I can be :lol)
good goddess, all that happened THIS YEAR?!?!?!
I came across posts about the Columbia tragedy, our nation at war (less than a year ago...feels like so much longer to me), some states pulling their heads out of their asses and taking steps toward legalizing same-sex marriages...the supreme court ruling...
December 2003 Archives
I wasn't going to do a year end post...and to be honest, I'm not sure this will be my last post this year :lol
To say this year has been a bitch and I couldn't wait for it to be over would be putting it mildly...however, something happened that made me realize it really wasn't all THAT bad...
lucky me, got to pull a 12 hour shift last night...to say I was bored out of my mind would be putting it mildly :rofl but about 5 AM it got interesting. (well, interesting stuff happened before that to, but thats not what this post is about!)
There was a family in town for a funeral, nothing much unusual about that...but one of the guests managed to lock herself IN her room (yes, I said in...not out of)
I honestly wish I could say this is the first time this has happened...but I can't...so I go up there to help her get out...
I couldn't get it open either :confused11
come to find out that really wasn't a big deal, she had turned the bolt on the inside and didn't get it unlocked all the way...but by the time we got it, she had worked herself into a fine panic...
she also had high blood pressure, and told me when she checked it, it was 240+ over 120+...(or somewhere around in there) enough to scare the hell out of me!
I tried to calm her down, while waiting for her son to come over, when I found out the real kicker...
it was her husband they were burring today...they had been married over 45 years :walk_sad
No...my year doesn't seem so bad after all...:hug
See you all when I get back :kisses
I really cannot believe the stupidity of some people...
if you're at work, even if you only have 'basic' computer knowledge...
DON'T surf porn sites
DON'T download spyware/malware, or for that matter, ANYTHING!!
you are there to WORK...not play around and surf porn on the Internet all day...you were warned...
and when the 'resident computer geek' busts you doing it, and puts a stop to it (with managements consent and permission, tyvm) don't try to make her out to be the bad guy!! You were caught, the least you could do is own up to it.
and giving ultimatums and then quitting is really quite childish...you'd been looking for a reason to quit for weeks, and it wasn't like you were up for most valuable employee anyway...
good luck to you...you're gonna need it if you keep this crap up!
damn...good thing I can use the overtime!
Wreath from Paradise Ali please pass it on.
it seems, sometimes when things hit a very low point in life, something happens to renew my faith in angels...
like my co-worker calling me last night to swap nights, and now I get to spend the day with my kids...
or a friend who will send me a card when they know I need cheering up...
and the friends that listen to me rant and rave and cry and then turn around and still talk to me the next day...
I have the best friends in the world, most of those I met right here on this little box, and I don't tell them that nearly enough...so I wanted to take the time to do that today...and let you know how thankful and blessed I feel to have you all in my life...
Thank you, to the ones who listen to me rant, call me in the middle of the night to make sure I'm ok, welcome me into their hearts, homes, and family's, and most of all accept me AS me.
Thank you, to the ones who've given me a virtual shoulder to lean on when I needed it, who've shared laughter, tears, good times and bad, all without us ever meeting face to face...hopefully time will change that!
Thank you, to the ones who, sometimes without even knowing it, push me to be a better person, and keep me occupied when I need it the most.
Thank you all, because all of you, in your own way, has touched my life more than you could ever realize...
one very tiny dose of Christmas spirit...
after looking everywhere this year, to no avail, I finally managed to find the dregs of Christmas spirit in me...
don't ask, it's been a bad year...:shakehead
and while my tree has only been decorated for 2 days, and there will be no baking done on my part this year (cept cheesecake...got to have that!!) and I still don't have present one wrapped (they were out of paper at wal-mart) I still discovered it...in the strangest place...:wtf
anyone who knows me knows I HELL HATE to shop...I will go out of my way to avoid it, seriously (abnormal for a femme, I know!) so, as of this evening I still didn't have it done...sad thing was the only people left to shop for were my kids :scared
so, I bit the bullet, went to the store, and actually found myself ENJOYING it :jaw
even humming along with the x-mas music playing in the store...
Ok Jamie...off my back gal, you know I've been busy!!
(last comment on previous post for those of you who are confused)
trying to update the site, not to mention with x-mas stuffies :uhoh3
thank you all for your feedback on the new look :notworthy but any information on the IRL model will need to be directed to the artist :rofl
now...I have a bit of a dilemma for you guys, a "what would YOU do" type thing if you will...
pretty much anyone who reads my blog regularly will know that I work Night audit at a local Best Western, been there over 2 years now, and tend to get called on allot with various problems that arise (since I seem to be the only one that knows my job and how to fix them) not to mention all around tech guru for the parent company.
Back in Oct., when my old GM left, and the new one was in place, there was another girl hired who had worked at another BW, not with the same owner though...but she knew about BW standards, etc...and came on board...
I recently found out that she was hired at the same wage that it took me 2 YEARS to obtain...and all she's pretty much managed to do is piss everyone off by rambling on about how much work she does, to include paperwork! (:confused11 she wants to see paperwork, let her come work with me one night!!!)
Needless to say, I'm a bit PISSED OFF about this matter...and I know what I would have done in my younger days (hopefully, I've calmed a bit since then..:lol) and what I want to do now...
what I want to know is, what would you do in my shoes?
so what do you think?
does she not ROCK!!
many thanks to my friend Mercy for creating her for me :banana
please let me know if you see any wonkiness...I think I've got everything just about right though *crossing fingers*
so I was talking to a friend tonight who told me I HAD to go take these 2 tests...
like I don't do enough of these damn things...:rofl
but they were kinda cute...
and BTW, she doesn't have a blog (yet, working on that) but if you see LoisLane hanging around my comments, feel free to give her a bad time for making me do these!!
I've been told several times by several people I need to update...
2 words for you guys
I want to take the time to publicly thank Buffy and Jamie for goodies sent my way :banana you guys ROCK!!-
In my continuing plan to take over the blog world (side note to -=e=-, where the heck are the rest of the archives?) I want to welcome Whtetigr to our happy home here. Put your feet up, enjoy your stay, (and try to avoid picking up any pointers from Jamie) :smokedevil
:coffee :flames :jaw :throwcomp
yes folks...i'm testing smilies :kissy
OK, I've been taking to damn many of these on-line tests...(it's true...I have no life!) not all of which are getting posted here!! :rofl
I always swore that I would not have one of those blogs that only served as a posting ground for test results...but I found another one at Carla's that I just COULDN'T resist...expecially since the result I got, is also what someone used to call me :biglaugha
don't think it was quite with this description though...
A GIRLY-GIRL. You don't have a lot of self-esteem
and people are always bringing you down for
being sad. What do they know, anyway? You feel
like you're too mature for your age and are
frustrated by the trend-followers who refuse to
accept you because you're not like them.
Your virtues: Intelligence, understanding nature,
Your flaws: Lack of social life, inferiority
What kind of girl are you?
brought to you by Quizilla
but I think I'd be afraid of what it said if I was a red or black! :lol
oh yes, btw, my DSL is back up and running!! :banana
Your dominant hues are green and blue. You're smart and you know it, and want to use your power to help people and relate to others. Even though you tend to battle with yourself, you solve other people's conflicts well.
Your saturation level is very high - you are all about getting things done. The world may think you work too hard but you have a lot to show for it, and it keeps you going. You shouldn't be afraid to lead people, because if you're doing it, it'll be done right.
Your outlook on life can be bright or dark, depending on the situation. You are flexible and see things objectively.
Well...it's done! As of this afternoon everything I own is in my new place :banana
thanks to everyone who 'would have' helped *s* was very sweet and I'm sure would have been a hell of a party when we got done :rofl
as it was, my father came up, and the ex took the weekend off (sometimes it pays to be civil to one another) and between all of us, with much assistance from 'da boys', we got it done.
I've rediscovered muscles I'd long forgotten...not in a good sense either :lol
now comes the major task of figuring out where to put everything...and since still no DSL at home for a couple more days, I've got some time on my hands :biglaugha
*and yes, it's a good thing to have admin privileges at work* :biggrin
