One Rough Week

First and foremost, I realize that there are others in this big world, that are going thru much tougher and greater heartbreak than I, that said...this week has sucked.

I had to put my dog Sadie down on Thursday morning-she was a good old dog, who just wanted to be petted in this world, so she left this world with me petting her and telling her I loved her. She has led a good and spoiled life. I am now down to one dog, Kissa-which to my many friends will be in shock, cause usually I have three. Kissa is a bit lonely and paranoid right now, so she is getting a lot of loving right now.

The next thing is I took my hubby to the airport for his trip home to see his mom who is not doing well in the Philippines. He will be gone for 6 weeks and we will have min. contact. The sad part is he is missing Munchkin's 3rd birthday next month. Munchkin is already crying that he misses his Daddy and wants to find a plane and find his daddy.

Of course after my day, that just sends me into we spent the night cuddling on the couch watching the Upside Down Show and such. Then my prescious little boy...gently wipes my tears and pats my hand and tells me I won't go mommy. God knew what he was doing when that little soul blessed my life.

Well I am already crying I am going to scoot...need to get busy and stay busy for awhile.

Crazy around here

I did not realize how long it had been since I posted...things have been crazy around here. My mom and nephew are coming this week to visit and we have an action packed weekend for the zoo and Little Red wants to see the ocean, so I thought I would take him on a ferry ride and drive over to one of the bays in our area. Of course the weekend would not be complete without Chuck E Cheese. LOL Man that is awful pizza.

Mister is getting ready to head home to the Philippines for 6 weeks, his mom is not doing well and he feels he needs to get it, just having done that for my dad, I completely understand. I am a little miffed though that he could not post pone things a couple of weeks and attend Munchkin's birthday, but he feels he needs to leave, so he is leaving this week and will not be back until the end of next month.

Now, I am going to have to deal with Munchkin...who will become MONSTER who will miss his Daddy terribly. I think it is going to suck being a single mommy for awhile and working full time. Fortunately, we have a lot of plans while Mister is gone, like go to fairs and wedding receptions, and just in general have a great time. I am going to make him a Go Diego Go quilt, as he is absolutely adoring Diego at this time. He is going to get a wagon and tricycle this year as he is getting big enough to have that.

So bear with me if I am not blogging much... I am going to try so Mister and see what is going on here.

Work is great..our manager that we were having problems with has really changed for the better, and I can only see the team get stronger.

Later peoples.

Well I did get my resume updated, but I have yet to turn it in anywhere. I am just not sure what I am going to do. There has been a shake up at my current work, and the manager that has been treating our team like crap is finally getting called to carpet, at least that is what looks like will happen. Now, I do not want to anyone hurt or get canned, but I would like a manger who will step up and take responsibility for the bad things just as much as the good things. She unfortunately is a person who can not see past her own perfection. She has never stepped up and said she was wrong or informed us that we were wrong, just that we misunderstood her. She is also a person who has to be into everything, but in real life, that is not necessary. She is so insecure with herself she can not trust us to do our job. The most disturbing thing is that she talks down to all of us like we are 12 years old. That is like a red flag in front of a just don't do that.

I know this is a hard lesson for her, but I hope she will realize this will only make her stronger and that much better. These are one of the harder lessons to learn as a manager, which unfortunately I have had to learn also. I do realize however that it was the best lesson. I hope she will rise above and become a better manager, but frankly I am not sure she can admit her own weaknesses. I pray for the best for her.

For me, I think I will still send my resume in and see what bites.

Otherwise it has been a quiet weekend-cool and cloudy with some hung out most of the weekend with the Munchkin. We start another week tomorrow. :)

My Dilema

Why is it that when things are going well in your life, something comes along that is tempting to try, but you just are not sure if you should go for it or stay? I am just so confused on what to do right now. I commute about 30 miles to work everyday to work as a complex case manager for a insurance company that is contracted by the state to adminster medical services the medicaid population. I do not do direct care anymore, but still have quite a bit of contact with members via telephone. I have in the last 8 months basically gotten a 20% raised because of my work. For that I am very proud. There is talk that they will start allowing telecommuting from home soon, but no date set, that would be heaven since gas is still pretty much over $4 a gallon here. Now, here is where my confusion starts, I got an email from one of my former Medical Assistants from my clinic manager days, telling me that the position for manager is coming open at the end of the month, which the clinic is only about 7 miles from my house and in the same town as my son's daycare. Obviously I don't know what they are looking for or the hours that they would require, as I am pretty restricted due to Munchkin's daycare. We could probably take a small paycut, and if the insurance is better with better would probably be a no brainer, but oh how I love my current job, and probably when my current supervisor retires I would be able to move into her role if I really wanted to advance-which would be a lot of work to achieve. Of course that is not a given, I would have to apply just like everyone else in the company. She and I go way back to my nursing home days, and I talked to her about it, of course she tells to follow my heart. Well goodness the only problem with that is my heart is torn...I am hoping to find out some details about the position soon, and then I can make a firm decision. I guess I am just going to have to really pray about this and get my resume update..LOL It sucks sometimes being such a perfectionist with my work ethics..

The Speeding Ticket

Well, another my perfect Mister, finally got a speeding ticket. And you know what ladies, that is the best $113 dollars I will ever pay. For nearly 8 years I have had to listen to how he is perfect with his driving record, never had a wreck or a ticket and that he could talk he way out of any ticket. I have personally have had 3 tickets since I have started driving at 14, so I would say at 37, that is pretty darn good. So back to Mister, when he talk me, I think he thought I lost my mind. He was prepared for me to be angry at the waste of money. Here I was on the other end of phone cackling like there was no tomorrow. I was thrilled. My PERFECT MISTER, was no longer so perfect. I am probably evil for being so gleeful, but believe me when for nearly 8 years to have it rubbed in your face that he was perfect...there is a certain joy that he is not.

He was not too happy with my reaction, but over the last couple of hours, he realizes how silly he has been over the last 8 years, and now we are both laughing about. I happily wrote the check today for $113 to the Washington Transportation Department...the best donation I have ever made to our roads. :)

Now, I have to get to the real world and clean the storage room.

Have a great weekend all.

PS: Munchkin continues to make progress with toilet training.
