Last Sunday, I went to bed with nary a snowflake in sight. At 4:30am Monday morning, the text came in - our office was closed! Which prompted me dragging myself out of bed and canceling appointments. Meanwhile, I looked outside, and it didn't look particularly bad. Little did I know that they hadn't plowed the … Continue reading Had a Snow Day!
Okay, so this is as much swearing as this blog's going to get! And only because it is the actual name of this business. We had our year-end work meeting in Dodgeville this year, and we ate at Bob's Bitchin' BBQ! This involved quite a hike for everyone, but we got to see our Janesville … Continue reading Bob’s Bitchin’ BBQ
So, I had to travel for a work training in the Wisconsin Dells recently, and of course this endlessly stressed me out. I was told my husband couldn't stay in the hotel room, but his parents lived close enough that he intended to drop me off and drive to their house. I haven't really traveled … Continue reading Work Training – Wisconsin Dells!
I woke up this morning at 8:30 and thought I was late for work. Note that I have today off, so levitating out of bed and freaking was NOT good for my health. Not good for my husband's health or sense of humor. But I don't have work. *relieved sigh* I'm sure you've done this … Continue reading Oh, My Heart!
So, I slept funny on Wednesday, and when I woke up and tried to move my neck it was excruciating, complete with a scream and tears. I couldn't even get upright without help. I took a muscle relaxant, had my husband try to give me a neck massage, pain killers, and nothing helped. On top … Continue reading Bummer: Neck Injury
So, at work I make a ton of phone calls where I have to get certain bits of information verbally confirmed. I research each first request, call, ask the same questions, and have different processes depending on the answers. I've done about 500 of these phone calls (according to my stats) now, which is a … Continue reading I Sound Like a Flight Attendant #Lifegoals
I spent all of Thursday attending an event at a High School nearby, and it was so hard. I was so uncomfortable and awkward, and you would think I had gotten over this in the last 15 years, but it made me feel really insecure. Seriously, the kids weren't at all interested in me - … Continue reading What Is It About High Schools?
So, this will be somewhat vague because I try not to drag Real People into my posts, and I definitely try not to facilitate work drama. BUT. We had a regional Christmas Meeting last Friday! We left the office to one of our partners who graciously agreed to keep an eye on things and serve … Continue reading Vague But Amusing Work Things!
I've been doing a new thing at work, registrations, and the way it works is you take the oldest on the list and work on it, then keep taking the oldest as you finish them. But apparently some people who do them just pick through and take the easiest. Which means I had a streak … Continue reading Registrations
So, as some folks may know, I have rapid-cycling Bipolar I. I spent several years on disability, but I've recently reentered the workforce and gotten off of disability. When I did this, I transitioned through the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, and moved to a DVR Limited Term Employment position in May of 2016. In September, … Continue reading Bipolar and Working: Scheduling
