things that have really irritated me this week:
  • due to our craptastic economy or total lack thereof I have learned that my already meager salary will (for the foreseeable future) be reduced by 3% - it amounts to more than you'd think, I promise.
  • due to our craptastic economy or total lack thereof the MTA has announced transit fare hikes. These hikes will really help enhance my standard of substandard living.
  • Out of my work team of 6 my 3 favorite co-workers are leaving at the end of the spring. Of the two who are remaining I really like one and I really dislike the other. Work is definitely going to be way less fun with those 3 gone and I'm really bummed about it. Even though I can now claim the best spot in my office.
  • My entire taking people at their actions and not their words plan has been a fairly disappointing and eye opening experience. Granted, I'm pretty cynical to begin with but even I've been taken aback. Some people... wow, just wow.
  • My right boob kinda hurts (weird and yes, I've already scheduled the dr. appt. fun!)
  • I can't stand the new Facebook layout. Can't stand.
  • I've had a recurring cold for weeks. Awhile ago I went to the dr., was prescribed some medicine, got better. Now I'm sick again. Have been for 2 weeks. I made a dr. appt for tomorrow. Called today to confirm and the receptionist said "no, you're appointment is for today, Thursday. The doctor isn't even in tomorrow." Now Thursdays are my nightmare days at work, the day where I am the absolute busiest and most crazed. There's NO WAY I'd have made an appt for Thursday. Yet, seems I did. So I left work and raced over to the office only to be told... yes, you see where this is going, don't you? So I get to do that again tomorrow.
Those are enough gripes for one week, right?


  1. But I thought the doctor isn't it tomorrow? Ah ha!

    I hope your boob is OK. I once had a lump and surgery and it's scary as all hell. Thinking about you!

  2. Uh, the doctor isn't IN, not IT.

  3. I hear you. Been sick for weeks now. And now I just want to put my head down and cry. Never again will I take good health for granted again.

  4. Waaah waaah waaah.
    Your boob has been hurting for the last ten years.
    Come over and eat free lunch.

  5. Hi Mom Brain I already texted you back that I'm in. Your apt.?

  6. Funny how a 3% raise gets me up in arms (what the hell can you even DO with 3%?!), but take it away, and suddenly 3% is fricken huge! Sucks...

    As for boob pain - I used to get that and followed up with doc to find that 1) the pain can be caused by caffeine, and 2) breast cancer doesn't usually hurt. Which, for an occasional worrywart, was a relief, but also made me think, 'oh my god, so what about all the time my boobs DON'T hurt? Could I have breast cancer then??' Fun times.

  7. p.s. Sending good thoughts - hope next week's better

  8. OK, so is it weird that we've never met, yet I keep popping in to check on you and your boob?

    How ARE you?

  9. You are too cute. I'm good and waiting for dr. #1 to transfer my files to dr. #2 so that my boob can be evaluated. Yippee!

  10. Waiting sucks... Sending good thoughts.

  11. Ha, something similar happened to me. Doc's office called awhile back and said "We can see your son TODAY at 2:30 or you'll have to wait 6 weeks." I said today would work, ran around like a bat outta Hell, got everything organized, walked to my car (10 minute walk), picked my husband up from work (20 minute drive), ran home (30 minute drive), got the kiddo from daycare next door, ran back into town (30 minute drive) and got to the clinic only to have them tell me that the appointment was for TOMORROW.

    I thought my husband was going to have a stroke on the spot, luckily we were at the almighty Mayo Clinic so he'd have been in good hands :P

    Sorry for the necroposting...I just saw the story and was like "I know...RIGHT?"
