What's been going on on my side of the internet since Frankie's?
Pooka is LOVING school despite her not being back in the habit of grabbing her book bag in the mornings! LOL! She has learned how to spread the peanut butter and jelly on the bread evenly now so of course she wants PB&J for dinner everyday and she has to make it...no complaints here! 5 pounds lost so far on the PB&J diet! HAHAHAHAHA! I asked her if we could have something other than sandwiches. She says the next dinner will be microwaved Ramen (another "meal" she is allowed to make). Oh boy I can't wait! I like when I don't have to cook! HAHAHAHAHAHA
I have been training folks to do what I do on the job so when I leave on the 5th someone will have some idea of how to do stuff. I didn't really realize how many little extra things I did around here that no one else took care of. Mainhater, of all people, came to my office in real tears when she read the mass email I sent out letting everyone I was leaving. Wasn't really expecting that! I mean yeah she worked my nerve from time to time before she retired and since she came back we were okay, but still tears? Really? I wasn't planning on telling my coworkers but my supervisor said that I might as well announce it because once she posts my position up they all gonna be asking questions anyway. The coworker with the platinum heart, the one who brought Pooka a bike one Christmas and feeds the office from time to time, is throwing me a pizza party Friday. She came and asked me what type of food I wanted. The first thing that came to mind was pizza. *shrug* I really wish she wouldn't do this but I know her and it's better that you tell her what you want than her going waaaay overboard doing what she wants.
I have officially registered for the GRE since payday is today *holly spirit dance*. I will be taking it first thing Thursday, September 11. I wanted to take it on Saturday the 13th, but all the slots were filled. All the Saturday slots were filled for September so I had to take what I could get. Do I need to study harder for the exam? Sure. Will I let this test stress me? No.
I'm renewing my CPR stuff next week.
School is school.
I went to the hospital that screwed me over for the first time since they screwed me over in June yesterday. The therapists really missed me and even tho' I didn't get the position it felt right being there. I even got a chance to meet the lady who got the position, she seems nice too. The only thing that bugged me is the way she does certain things...like layer the pillows in the middle of the therapy table vs. stacking them at the head, folding the towels 3 different ways, and having no real organization in the storage closet...but that's her domain and I will just go with the flow. In hindsight I am glad I didn't get the position cuz I have control over when I will and won't be there and it won't affect if I can pay my bills. I like being the one to dictate where I need to be and when I need to be there.
I may also do some intern work at the athletic performance center. This is the same place I spoke of earlier where a broad range of athletes (weekend warriors to professionals) come for therapy, strengthening, conditioning, etc...from what I hear this is definitely a more hands on experience than the hospital. The head PT guy emailed me yesterday asking me what days, times and for how long I wanted to do this. Again, with the me controlling how my day goes (yay) I emailed him back asking if what I put down was okay. It's basically half days. I'll give him till next Friday to say yes he's cool or no he isn't cool with what I offered.
So if he says yeah he is cool, my schedule for the next 3 months will be something like this
Athletic Performance Center
Home to sleep for 4 hours and start again
If he is not cool, the schedule will be the same, just change the APC with Hospital cuz either way I have to clock 400 hours by Thanksgiving. *sigh*
The whole idea scares me a bit. Snookums doesn't think it's a great idea. Mommy asked me why I always choose to have a million things going at the same time. Truth is, doing this is needed to get where I want to be. There isn't much of an option for me. I told Snookums if I make it for 3 months on this schedule I'd stick an S on my chest! LOL! I love being able to accomplish things most think is bananas but even I'm kinda wondering on this here...I know I can make it, but will I be a sleep deprived bitch at the end? We'll see won't we.
As for today? I am going to do the work thing then drop Pooka off at this pajama party @ a center she goes to that she's been asking me over and over and over about. While she is at the center partying, momma is going to take herself to the dollar fiddy movie and finally see Wanted! YAY Mommy! Saturday Babydaddy is coming down to scoop Pooka up for some overnite time. As soon as he picks her up I am going to the courtry to participate in Aunt Diva's baby shower and another cousins engagement party. It's going to be one big ole cookout! Family reunion part II minus the fam in Philly. LOL! Pooka was kinda mad she wasn't going with me, but she's okay with it now. On Sunday Pooka and I are going to watch NCCU play some football! I get in free, Pooka is 5 bucks, parking is 5 bucks, and we'll already be in Chapel Hill that day so going to the game is on the way home! Family time at a live game for 10 bucks ain't bad! LOL!
Oh yeah, being that I will be in a gym, therapy room, or pool 90% of my week with no internet access, I may become a weekend blogger in the near future.
