Time passing by

My,  my has it really been that long since I’ve last posted? This is the longest I have gone without blogging. And that’s where I left off blogging? In the middle of a pivotal part of a story? Harsh.

So, if I still have any followers reading this blog,

First and foremost,  I have to inform you Omar did indeed have his second brain surgery. He is alive and trying to be well. Unfortunately,  he has been feeling ill the last few months. We’re toughing it out. In less than two weeks he’ll be having a full work up and cancer check up with a MRI and meet with his nuero oncologist. So stressed and worried about this which is part of why I’m up at 3:30am

Secondly,  my furbaby Bianca. I know you all missed pictures of her absolute cuteness. She had her yearly check up last month and unfortunately her teeth have gotten worse. This week she will be having dental surgery to remove several infected teeth. Since she will be under, she will be getting spayed at the same time. I could never afford getting her fixed with my retail check so now i can finally get it done for her. I’m so anxious and nervous for my little doggie.

Thirdly, I no longer work retail for various reason. I miss my Levi’s jeans department like crazy. Those jeans have been through it all with me and that stock room has shared my blood,  sweat and tears.  But, I held resentment in my heart. With the hubby getting sick again , I had to take a leave of absence from work. But, it was an emergency. I didn’t have notice to give. They made the process difficult and stressful.  Instead of clearing my schedule for the week, just taking me off while my application for a leave was being processed, I had to call out every single day. Which tarnished my attendance recorded. But also, I had to leave the hubby’s bed side while he was in the hospital to call out otherwise I would be marked as a no call no show and three of those is autoterminatation. I didnt know at the time but they also made me take a personal leave of absence instead of a fmla . So, if i tried to collect aasistance …i would of been denied. My other job, one email and i was taken care of. Was put on fmla the next day and still invited to work events the whole time i was out. Since everything happened with the hubby so sudden i didnt have the time or knowledge that i could of applied for assistance. I had my taxes in savings and i lived off of that when i was out of work. But, point is, I held a grudge against the treatment I got from my retail job. Not only going on leave but returning back. It was a full two weeks before they me back on schedule and they tried to give me this insane schedule , and then tried to cheat me my promoised 25 hours. So when I returned from leave, the strings were already broken. I didn’t love or feel loyal to the place anymore. I countined to work there just weekends for awhile. But, as of August I ended my three years of working retail and resigned.

I still work at the other job. It’s a day service program for people with developmental disabilities.  I work part time but higher end part time 30 hours a week atleast. For the most part it’s still amazing, I love what I do. But, lately, it’s been frustrating. Feeling like a lot is dumped on my side of the program and the other side is babied. I can be self sufficent so I can get over that. But, then we’re asked to pick up the slack and cover for the other side when someone is out and add a million things to what we’re already doing….but not go over our time. I don’t mind helping out, I don’t mind doing more. But there is only so much you can do in so many hours and then we’re only allowed to stay late when its beneficial for other people. So, yeah. Love my job, love what I do. But the politics is getting to me and I’m not excatly skipping into work anymore.

That’s the three main things. A million other things have happened, are happening now and probably a million more things will happen tomorrow . But, there is nothing we can do but face them.

Or hide in a blanket fort.

It is getting chilly outside.. .
