Merry Christmas, Norma Jeane

Photobucket

Compared to my other "saucy" tags, this one must be rated G! LOL... This is Norma Jeane before she became Marilyn Monroe...

The lead case manager was very b*tchy today... I guess she wonders what I do all day, because there were groups waiting to be seen this afternoon, but I see most of my kids on Tuesdays. This is kind of hard, because we also have staffings on Tuesdays. They were scheduled by someone else, so I have nothing to do with that, but that means that my busiest day is Tuesday.

What helped me to get caught up was the day that the girls were out. Their absence was a tremendous blessing, because I was able to use the phone without having to wait on them to finish their phone calls. Also, although I still have to hand write my entries, I try to write my updates as soon as they happen so that I don't forget. This helps because my notes are always up to date.

In reality, I don't know what she has to gripe about, really, because she only has about 24 cases, which is a very low caseload. What makes some women get so b*tchy? I just don't get it. I never get b*tchy. Is there something wrong with me if I don't get b*tchy?!#

The Secret Santa started today... The stockings are hung in our office, so they come and check their stockings and leave things for the people they got... It is all too funny to watch them come and go, because they are all acting like little kids over their gifts...

The skinny girl was in the office today, whispering as usual, to the lead case manager. Guess her mother never told her that it is rude... I was shocked to hear that she loves sexy lingerie, because a stick figure probably has more meat on it's bones. LOL... Oh, my bad! LOL... She still can't seem to look at me in the eyes. She always looks away whenever I am around. I guess she must think I am beautiful. ha ha...

The brother of one of my kids was shot and killed in his home country. They buried his brother today. I contacted the social worker supervisor to ask her to help me with him, just in case he needed counseling after he got the news... And I don't have a phone, so I thought it would give him some privacy if we made the phone call from her office. The boy's brother who lives in New Orleans gave him the news over the telephone. The youth was in disbelief, hurt, and tearful, but he was a real little soldier about it and said he wanted to resume with classes the rest of the day... I checked on him later in the day. He was quiet but he said he was doing ok...

Normally, I would have handled everything myself... the phone call to the brother, the counseling, etc, but because this company only wants me to work as a case manager, I am limited as to how much I am allowed to do. It feels strange to limit myself, because it makes me realize how overworked I was in my past jobs.

I received my first paycheck today. George W. Bush (who is a republican by the way<-- read that Screaming Remo! LOL) took a huge chunk out of my paycheck, way too much! I am glad that I didn't volunteer for them to take any more money than what the company pays for insurance. Imagine how much smaller my check would have been! OMGGGG........

Another thing that happened today is that my car window won't close. The weather is supposed to get into the 30's tonight & I have to wake up way early tomorrow because we have a meeting at 7:00 a.m. My mechanic is off on Mondays, so I am praying that the car thieves don't show up tonight. My car has been broken into twice since I have lived at these apartments. I would hate to wake up not to find my car in the morning... Plz say a prayer for Jones' safety (my car) tonight....

XX

P. S... I had a good diet day today, but I was disappointed to hear that we have to buy our own water. It turns out that the only water available to us is the water that comes out from the bathrooms, so tomorrow, I will have to take my own water/drinks. I was going to start out the day with Tae Chi but I only have nine of the exercises. One is missing. LOL... Will need to figure out which one it is...

Glad that things are working out well at work, despite the few "odd balls" ... I didn't realise that you were not able to drink the tap water at work..here that would not be a problem we can just fill our own water bottles....Mind you some folks here still insist on bottle water however many blind tests have shown that there is no benefit over bottle/tap !!
Have good day. xx
Love Sybil x

Marilyn looks like Judy Garland in that pic!

how sad for that boy ;-(

there is always one bitch and one skinny chick too...LOL

Um. The President doesn't make the laws on taxes. The Congress and Senate (Democratic majority for the last two years...)make those laws and present them to the President for his approval (signature) and if he disagrees they can override his veto with a majority. The Democratic-controlled House/Senate now can't account for where the $750 BILLION bailout went. No one knows.

Could you call Nancy Pelosi and ask her? She's so smart.

You get what you voted for. :)

Myra said...

Women are so catty, especially in an office setting...competition with clothes, make-up, shoes, etc. I have to say my office is all women and everyone is really nice, but then we're older (read: mature)!

Bethe said...

I refill my water bottles also. But, if you don't have a refrigerator at work it won't be cold. I do hope Jonsey is OK.

hugsss....

Indigo said...

I don't get why some people need to be so bitchy either. It's simple knowledge that you get back what you give.

Otherwise your job is looking great for you. I have to agree with LYN norma jean does look like a young judy garland here.

(Hugs)Indigo

I really really hope and pray this new job works out. It seems like you are doing well except for the office chatter which happens everywhere. Love that old tube of young Marily, love it! HUGS

Missie said...

Great tag! I think Marliyn Monroe was much prettier before she became famous.

Enjoy your day.

Nancy said...

I'm never bitchy towards anyone, because I dont know why they act the way they do, and I try to be empathetic. Sometimes people are just jelous or someone was bitchy to them so they in turn act out. Hey my window is also stuck, wont go up or down! I know its a problem in the door, but to fix mine will cost 400 dollars!

Estela said...

I used to work among gossipers about 20 yrs ago, it's much better now where I work. I'm the "main" secretary, maybe that helps :-)

Hey, if it's the back window, just get a local guy to raise it and put bars on it so it stays up. I did it to my 2 back windows this summer, $25 each. Costs $125 to fix so chose the cheap way.

Your first paycheck and you weren't jumping around for joy like Tom Hanks in "BIG"!?!?!?

Cathy said...

Go figure why some folks act as they do, you'll grow old trying. Thanks for this shot of Norma J. You fixed it up very seasonally. Have you been checking out Luna all this month? Amazing!!
