For some unknown reason I have been avoiding my blog like the plague. Just haven't been doing the blogging/blog reading thing for the past few days. *shrug*
What's been up in my slice of the world? Well Monday I went to my temp service to fill out the paperwork and to watch a mandatory OSHA video *yarn*. After that I spoke with the person who reps the state job. I asked her about direct deposit. I fill that form out and she tells me how much my pay rate is. Let me just say YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! *insert Tiger Woods arm pull down* God is good! I asked the chick when they wanted me to start and she was under the impression that I already started! LOL! I go to my permanent industrial rehab job and call my boss at the state job to see when I am supposed to start....
My mind said okay..."How about tomorrow?"
"Tomorrow is perfect."
"What time do you want me to come in?"
"When you get here."
Not expecting that answer. "Ummm how about 7:30?"
"Great! See you tomorrow morning!"
In my mind I was like, did this woman just tell me to get there when I got there? Lawd have mercy these folks are starting to spoil me again! LOL! I get there Tuesday and while logging on to the computer I was told that when I left they never shut my accounts down! How the hell they know I was coming back? LOL! Anyways, so I open my email to 700 or so emails! After getting settled in the system I went walking around the building to say hi to folks and meet the 2 new folks that came on permanent since I left. Most folks were very glad and surprised to see me. Some thought I was just up there to visit. My supervisor told some employees Monday that someone who was familiar with the system we use was coming back, so they were trying to guess which ex employee it was. None of them guessed me! HA!
I got there at 7:30 and by 10:30 I was ready to go home! It didn't take me long to remember why I blogged from time to time about being ready to leave. I stay because they need help and I need the money. Period.
I must say that I LOVE not having as much responsibility as I did when I was there before! The people who got my tasks were happy to see me and ask me questions. And boooooooooooy did they ask me questions. It was like I never took the time to explain everything before I left and that it's not in the manual *smh* Long story short, I honestly felt missed and needed and I am glad it's only 2, maybe 3 if I work a Saturday, days a week!
Oh yeah, why on my second day back my supervisor came to me asking me what my hours were! Again, in my head I was like "aren't you supposed to be telling ME when yall want me here?" I thought for a second and gave her my hours and she went on her way. I swear I can get used to these companies asking me when I want and don't want to work! LOL! The same thing happened with my rehab job. They said they wanted me to work 2 full days and a half day and I got to choose which days I wanted!
So now my schedule looks a lil sumtin like this....
Monday 7:30-9:30 volunteer with inpatient rehab, 10-12 volunteer with outpatient rehab, 1-5 work my industrial rehab job
Tuesday work for the state
Wednesday work for the state
Thursday work for industrial rehab
Friday work for industrial rehab
Some Saturdays work for the state
The inpatient rehab is at another hospital than the one I've been doing outpatient. The orientation was on Monday. I haven't officially started inpatient yet because they have not got my background check and all that make sure I'm sane, a good worker, and not a felon stuff back. :-)
Hmmmmm what else? Oh yeah, I submitted my Elon application. Pooka's loving her new child care arrangement. I have had the chance to talk to some folks I haven't spoke to in a minute. Hung out briefly with a blogger. One of my best friends is trying to recruit me and Pooka into becoming Steelers fans, which is very funny to me. I really want to be a true blue win or lose fan of ONE NFL team. Right now it's either the Redskins or the Panthers simply because they rep my hometowns. I can't pick just one right now. :-( Yeah and before some of you say it, I know I grew up in MD and technically the Ravens are the MD team, they are just not an option for me! Baltimore is it's own separate life form from the rest of MD! HAHAHAHAHAHA!
