Hi everyone. Sorry I have been out of touch. I had a VERY long week. I guesstimate that I worked about 63 hours in 4 days. I worked 930 am Monday till 330 Am Tuesday, went home, slept about 4 hours, then was back at 10 am that same day and worked till midnight. Worked 10 am till midnight on wednesday, then worked 930 am Thursday, till 245 am wednesday. I came home, went to bed and slept till noon, got up for a few hours, then went back to sleep and slept till about 930. I feel much better now, though the only thing I go accomplished was cleaning the rat cage.


Last weekend Joe was supposed to take me to Olive Garden, but when we got there the line of people waiting for a table was almost around the building, so we ended up going to Logans RoadHouse......I don't know if they have those everywhere, or just South Bend, but they are a steak house, and they have the most delicious rolls, steaks and just about everything. A bit pricey, but very good food and service. You also get a bucket of peanuts and you just throw the shells on the floor!!!!!!!!!

My brother made me a cake, though I didnt give him enough notice to make it classic Pooh, but it was a cool cake anyways. I took a pic, I just havent had time to DL it. I will do that as soon as I can, and post it for you all.


My meds seem to be helping me a lot. I forgot to take them yesterday though. The first half of the day I was downright chipper, but as the hours wore on, I started to feel fuzzy and frayed around the edges. By 130 am, I was so upset I was close to pulling my hair out. I chewed Joe out for being slow and totally snapped at my boss. Luckily he understood and I wont get in trouble. We've all been working so many long hours that we are all snapping at each other and falling apart.

The head supervisor, our floor supervisor (the one I yelled at) and our Human Resources director called everyone into the office one by one to thank us for all our hard work these last few days and the tell us we are doing a good job. Our workload literally doubled in a week and we are so short handed right now its pathetic. They hired a few people and hopefully it will get better.

They are supposed to be hiring me a helper, most likely a temp or a part timer just to help me with the date entry so I can do my other duties and not get behind. I had been able to handle it until this week. I wont get into all the detail of the drama in my office, but lets just say that hopefully they will be getting rid of the unreliable people and actually put someone in my office that can help me instead of screwing me over constantly.

Well, sorry this post jumped around a bit. So much has been going on, and I am still so tired, so I dont know if it has made any sense to any of you.

Good Night

Well, I went to the doctor Friday, and I am now on Prozac......took my first dose today. I hope it helps me....

She also wants me to do a sleep study the end of May. She thinks I have sleep apnea....I know I do snore a lot, but to be honest, I don't think I have it. A major sign of it is being constantly sleepy, and falling asleep during the day. Thats not me. I mean, I am tired, but its just cos of all the hours I work. I worked 17 hours on Thursday. I went in at 930 am and didnt get off till 230 friday morning. Thats why I'm tired. I don't start the day out tired. I wake up feeling refreshed most of the time. I am thinking of changing doctors. it seems like to her, every problem I bring up is caused by my weight. I know I am over weight but not ALL my problems are caused by that. Sheesh. It's so hard to find a good doctor these days.

My blood pressure is good now though. It was high, and she put me on meds....I took em for a month, then ran out but my pressure is still good. My sugar is still up. so I am still taking my metformin for I am on birth control, metformin and prozac. My desk is beginning to look like my grams with all the pill bottles!! I just dropped 62 bucks at the pharmacy!!!!

Well, I am gonna get off here. Joe is taking me to Olive Garden for my bday dinner. I got a new outfit to wear..I am looking forward to actually going on a "date" with him!

Well, my birthday was a quiet affair, mostly cos I'm celebrating it this weekend since I had to work and I get paid this week, so I will have the money to properly celebrate it!!

My dad's 50th was this weekend as well, two days before mine. We threw him a huge bash....kudos to my sis in law and brother for all their hard work, as me and my mom had to work, so we couldn't help much. My brother made a cool ass cake that looked like a demolition derby. He had little hills made out of cake, and brown frosting for the dirt, and little matchbox cars and monster trucks. It was awesome!!! Tasted great too!!! Then Sunday I let Joe go on the Road Rally with my dad and step bro, even though it was my birthday. I had the house to myself on my bday...peace and quiet!! They got third place too, which was totally cool.

Sperm Donor (bio dad) sent me a card on my bday. It was early!! I couldn't believe it!! He remembered AND it was early!!! Will wonders never cease!!! It had a little note it in telling me he knew that he forgot things and was never around but that he does love me, blah blah blah...I jotted a quick note telling him thanks, and sent the pic of me and Joe that was taken right before xmas..the one on my myspace page.....I just don't know what to do when it comes to him..never do, prolly never will.....

Work seems to be going better this week. Only worked three hours overtime in two days, instead of 8...yay!!!!

Well, gotta go check on my dinner. Thanks for all the bday wishes everyone!!

Yay!!! I got a reprieve and now I don't have to work on bday is looking up!!!

Oh man, I am exhausted. I worked 9.5 hours doing hard manual labor and let me tell you, after a year of parking my big butt in an office chair, I got freaking weak....I thought I was gonna die today. My feet and back hurt, I was sweating like a pig and I could barely move!!! I am so glad it is over with!!!

I worked 60 hours in 5 days this week!

Monday, April 7, 2008

Well, I am getting ready to head off to work for a 6 day shift. You probably wont hear from me much this week........

Sunday is my 29th Birthday and that is the only day I get off this week. *sigh* So, I am celebrating it the next weekend. Joe asked what I wanted, and I told him, take me to get a new outfit, then take me to see Forever thats what he's gonna do.

Talk to ya all next week!

Ok, I know this will sound kinda corny and goofy, but New Kids on The Block are getting back together, and I am so excited its pathetic!!

I LOVED them. To the point of obsession. My walls were papered with posters and pin ups, I had the Joey doll, I had ALL their tapes, buttons, hats, tshirts, even went to a concert when they were in South Bend.

I watched their apperance on the Today show this morning, plus I am signed up to receive updates from their website......

I know, I'm pathetic....I can't help it, and I can't wait!!!
