What a clusterfuck

So, I mentioned the other day that I quit the nursing home gig….unfortunately, my former co-workers didn’t get the message. I got a pissy phone call yesterday from the nurse telling me I “was on the schedule and am now a no call, no show”. I don’t think so, lady! I called back yesterday and got the head CNA, who I explained the situation to, but the nurse called me again today saying I was a no show. Will people there fucking talk to each other?! What the hell do I need to do, pass out fliers? If they list me on the registry as a no call no show, I will raise some hell. I quit. HR has my letter of resignation. FUCK!!!!

I got the job!!!!

Hooray for me! I will be working as a CNA soon. Every other weekend with the option of picking up open shifts. I am very excited, as I really like this facility and the residents. I took my drug test today, and I go for my physical on Friday. After they get those results back, plus the background check, I’ll go in for orientation.

B saw my fish hat sitting out and said “What’s that?” with a pouty face. I said it was a hat I was working on, and he said “Oh….”. Point taken. I know he wants his sweater, and I have been taking way too long in finishing it (I started it in August, for crying out loud!!), so I will work on nothing else until the sweater is done! Especially since the hat is gross, I don’t like the colors at all:


Sometimes I just suck at putting colors together. Oh well, it was leftover yarn so it’s going right into the circular file…

Nothing new

I’ve been plugging along on B’s sweater…and the hat hasn’t gotten any action lately.

I am spending a godawful amount of time on Ravelry (LSG to be exact, even though I mostly lurk).

I spent some time today trying to get rid of some spyware. I noticed the other day when I’m online, the ring that shows up next to the cursor was just going and going in this spastic loop. When I ran Norton, I saw a program called FAUXVIRUS\carny_ride.exe and promptly looked it up online (thank you, Yahoo Answers!) to find out how to get rid of it pronto. I think it worked, we’ll see in the next couple of days. I think I got it from reunions.com. I was looking for a friend of mine that I haven’t spoken to in a few years, and that site said they had info on him, but they spywared me instead! Not like it’s as bad as a virus, but it was still doing something with my ‘puter, which is not OK.

Oh yeah! I had my interview today, and it went pretty well. If I don’t hear from them by Wednesday, I think I’ll give them a jingle. I told them I was interested in flex time, which is every other weekend (2nd shift), plus I can sign up for any open shifts I want to. Part-time would’ve been cool, too, but I think flex time will be awesome, especially since I have to consider my massage job and school. Keep your fingers crossed for me!

Holy crud!

I’m so nervous! I have a job interview for a CNA position, and I haven’t been on an interview in at least five years. I filled out an application at the nursing home I did my clinical hours at, and that was a month and a half ago, so I figured it was a no-go. Then out of the blue they called me today, and I have an interview scheduled for Monday morning! Wish me luck, I’m gonna need it.

Some pictures

I have a new! improved! pic of the KISS purse:

So purty. I also made a Moebius Basket from this book:


Eh, it turned out OK. It took me two days to make, and I used some stash yarn (which was a booga bag that I never felted and ended up frogging), but it didn’t felt enough. So Noro Kureyon + size 11 needles = too big of stitches.

I took the state test for my CNA certificate today, and it was so freaking easy. I was the first person done and it took me all of 30 minutes. The worst part was somehow I pulled a muscle in my back this morning, between my shoulder blades, that makes moving my right arm torture…and I’m right-handed. I had a 90 minute massage scheduled this afternoon and I ended up rescheduling her for next week because just the thought of working makes that muscle throb. Boo. I needed the money. But when the body is hurting, I don’t push it. It usually only makes things worse!
