I dunno… It’s late and I’m tired.

Here is the post I said I wouldn’t make.

I knew before I went back to work, after my stint in the hospital, that I wasn’t ready to be back at work. I don’t feel great. I haven’t felt great. Work doesn’t help. It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to consistently work a shift start to finish. It’s easier when things are busy. I’m kept distracted from this and that. Though not too busy because then the stress becomes too much. It’s too much for anyone to work a busy lab by themselves. It shouldn’t be done.

I guess where I’m going with this is here…

Things are getting better. It’s been a week solid since I’ve gone home early with it being my idea. Don’t get me wrong, when things are dead I get kicked out early. But that isn’t my doing or my fault. It can’t be used against me.

I’m starting to get placed back on 5 shifts a week instead of the 4 I’ve been at.

I’ve even been better at getting maintenance done. It was never near as bad as the super before me left it. Lord knows if she went without getting in trouble and NEVER did maintenance… My hit and miss approach the past few months is nothing. But I have my schedule back up and I’m working hard at it.

All in all, I’m doing better.

And if THIS posts gets me fired when it’s dedicated to me doing BETTER, then fuck it all. I’ve been sick and doing the best I could. Now I’m still sick but not as sick and am fully functional at work. Now isn’t the time to fire me. That time has PASSED.

Then sometimes I wonder if anyone even notices this blog or cares. It’s scary who has access, but they have shit of their own to worry about.

I want to go to the beach.

One of the bloggers who’s blog I read is currently on vacation at the beach and I’m mildly, no moderately, no extremely, jealous.

Rambles… You Know The Drill

Posted July 21, 2009 By kmarrs

First off, and it must be said… I’d kill for a brownie. A 9x9in brownie.

Hit man for hire, will work for chocolate.

I got out of bed this morning, hopped on my menstrual cycle and I’m ready to run your ass over. Anyone’s ass really.

I stole that from Jeff Dunham.

It’s 7:00 and my 6yo just requested to go to bed. I must be bitchy.

I was blind-sided by this one. Should have seen it coming what with me eating everything in sight yesterday.

Alright, moving off my period.


My youngest keeps screaming that blood curdling scream he is so good at. Side effect of the big one being up their too. They need separate rooms but not as long as dad is living with us.

Speaking of my dad…

How to go about this.

He has a really good idea involving eBay. He’s invented some coding letting something be possible on eBay that’s never been possible before. Making viewing for sale items more interesting. I dunno. I don’t pay attention. But he’s planning to sell the coding and might make some decent profit. If he does, YAY! He is giving himself until October. If something big doesn’t change or happen in his life by then he’s decided he’s moving out. With no where to go and no money to get there. I won’t really let that happen. I just really want this eBay thing to work. Then maybe we can afford to upgrade to a bigger apartment with dad chipping in on the rent or something to make it happen.

Pat and I want more kids. We need at least one more bedroom for that to happen. Luke and Thomas as the oldest will probably always share a room, but they’ll be fine. Here in a year or two we are getting them bunk beds.

Anyway, more about the little.

He’s turning into a stripper.

No really. In the span of 24 hours he figured out how to remove clothing including snaps.

I’m not amused.

Pat just said that phrase to Thomas, but it works where it is in this ramble.

Ok, I’m a little amused.

In the 5 minutes Pat had his back turned yesterday Luke removed a onesie and a diaper. Pat turned back around in time to be handed both.

That was Luke’s first time as a stripper. By the time I got home Pat was calling it a good moment because Luke was willing to keep his diaper on.


I’m getting rat advice from my cousins David and Kim. They are the family rat experts.

I actually really wish they lived closer. Or more accurately that I lived closer to them. I’d love to live in the state of Washington. They live in BC Canada, which is where I really want to live.

This whole post has one point. To make me feel better about not being able to post about work. I really want to post about work and I can’t.

I’m just going to shut my mouth now.

This whole process of getting rats acquainted with us is time consuming. I’m wanting to walk around with a rat or two on my shoulder or in my shirt pocket, and all they want to do is run from me.


It just takes time, patience, and practice. I know, I know.
