(SAC) Do Not Disturb

Photobucket

OMG @ I am sad to see that I have lost a reader... probably because I have been behind in making tags, or perhaps, I am just boring? Oops, it was a guy I failed to pay attention to. My bad. So sorry about that...

Yep @ it has been a VERY long week at work... I finally understand why some people pray for Friday! I got behind, because I had three kids leave the shelter last week. There is a lot of preparation when the kids leave. Having so many of my cases approved at once is a good thing, but it just gives me more work... This week, I had to wait all week for the airfare to come in the mail for a kid that left the shelter this morning, so that helped me out a bit. The bad thing is that they have changed the rules, and now, we have to justify every 30 days why the kids are still at the shelter. Grrr @ I am still trying to finish up with one kid who has been there since July. What's difficult is that I didn't have him until the end of last year, so all of my reports are second hand information from the previous worker's notes. Doesn't seem fair. Grrr.... Also, I have some new kids, and I don't know them yet.

One thing that freaked me out is that the head She-Devil stood up for me in a meeting. She said that I am doing a good job and that I am kicking butt. (working fast) OMGGG... That really freaked me out, because it came very unexpected. Does that mean that I might pass probation? Still, I don't trust them, and I think it is good for my boss and everyone to describe me as a "quiet person." LOL @ remaining mysterious can work to my advantage!

P.S.... One thing I forgot to mention was the Obama Inauguration. We were allowed to see it with the kids, but unfortunately, we had to hear it in Spanish. I don't like it when they try to translate in another language, because it always loses something in the translation.

People come and go. I admit I'm sad when I lose a reader, but many people just give a test drive to see if you keep there attention.

Rose said...

I don't think you every really lose a reader. Sometimes, people get caught up in their own little world with things to do but they always come back.

Hugs, Rose
P.S. I love you new tag.

I lost a reader this week too Wini. No worries. I know some are trying to cut back because they are so overwelmed with trying to keep up with so many blogs. I did a little trimming myself not long ago. Enjoy your weekend.
Hugs, Joyce

I was thinning out my blogs that I follow, since I followed 93 and only had 47 followers of mine.As you can see, I am back. I noticed that you were no longer following me, so I jumped ship. Come back to my following too! The tags are worth hanging around for.

Your personality and your work have remained consistent, so they have to see you are kicking butt! Just continue to be yourself, and don't play into any games. I, personally, don't share any of my personal life with anyone I work with, and I've been there over 2 years. Just better that way!

I agree with Mike up there. I had 49 & have lost a few "followers". But I know I have a lot more readers than that because my sitemeter tells me. That and when I have a real problems "lurker's" have left notes of comfort. Even a guy I dated emailed & said he had been reading for months. He even offered to help me if I needed it (that was when Jazzy was sick. Not that I would, but t was nice of him to offer.

Work sounds crazy, but at least you had a nice moment in the meeting. hugs, Bethe

Glad to hear things at working are getting better it' always hard to adjust to a new job and people.

Readers come and go, they have stuff in their own lives to attend to so journals often take a back seat, they come back when they can.

Take care

Blessings are found in the most unlikely places (she-devil standing up for you). As for the Inauguration, if you look it up on You Tube you should be able to hear the entire thing in English. The speech is also floating around on line. You can Google that one. (Hugs)Indigo

Sybil said...

Glad that the meeting went well and that someone unexpectedly stood up for you...I won't name her as I realy don't like calling folks names....(imagine if they could hear us call them that) I am sure and certain that you will pass your probation..just relax a bit you can only do your best.
keep smiling it works wonders.
Love sybil x

I've lost 2 readers in the past month, Wini. I will gain a couple and lose a couple. Can't figure out who or why. One quit blogging and deleted it so all her followings went with it.

It sounds like you will make your probation.....whoo hoo....huggies
