This has been such a challenging week at work. The She-Devils at work continue to try their best to bring my mistakes to light. Because everyone is back from their holidays, my security clearances have been coming back all at once! Grrr @ I am having to release kids from the shelter faster than I can think! The process is not hard. It's just a string of things that I have to remember to ensure all loose ends are tied. It is heart-breaking that not all the kids can be reunited with their families. You get used to the kids. They become a part of your everyday life, but then, you have to let them go. There is so much paperwork involved for everything and I am responsible for all the paperwork that the other staff has to put into the file, too. The Eye used to close our cases but now, he wants us to start closing them ourselves. I am still trying to learn the rest of it, so this is yet another thing that I have to learn. Grrr... LOL
This week, I was busy reuniting three kids with their families. That's a lot of work. My brain is unable to accept any more information... Unfortunately, we had a training on Friday. My brain was too fried to retain most of what was said...
After getting Jones' oil changed, I received what seemed like a medical report. My poor Jones is so disabled. It is a miracle that he contines to be so reliable. Yesterday, we spent all day at the mechanic. The part to hold up the glass for the window hasn't come in, or so the mechanic said... Jones was given an alinement, but the mechanic said that I really needed some new tires, so off to Wal-Mart I go to get Jones some new shoes.
Boy, was I surprised at the prices! The cheapest tire was $75.00! What happened to the time when I could buy four tires at $200 the set?! OMG! I feel as if I spent my whole paycheck just on the two tires I bought for Jones and to get them rotated and balanced, but Jones seemed so happy when I got him on the freeway.
I bought a few groceries for the week, too, so I feel bad about spending so much money in one day. Jones needs a good wash, too, but it will have to wait...
So now I am really behind in my housework and I still need to wash my clothes for work. I spent most of the morning going through some of my 5,000 emails on g-mail, but I don't think I went through 1,000, because there are still so many left. LOL @ I will probably just delete them later. It's just too exhausting to go through them all. I haven't even looked into my emails from hotmail or from yahoo. I have way too many accounts because most of them don't work for receiving graphics. Grrrrrrrr... I keep trying to leave AOL but it seems to be the best for sending emails with graphics... What would Jesus do? LOL
The best thing about this week is that I am five pounds lighter. Yay! Makes me happy. The diet continues until the New Moon.
