Another day at work

October 20th, 2006 at 06:13 pm

well we hired a new person who is very nice and smart but unfortunately she does not speak English that well ( she's hispanic) and the therapist treats her like crap...she's hispanic as well which surprises me. well I finally told the boss that she was so rude to her, that even others made mention to it. I just hope things work out

Tip of the Day

October 13th, 2006 at 01:22 pm

I received this in my inbox today and thought I would share, being that the holidays are approaching:

Gift Boxes

I cover my gift boxes with single rolls of wallpaper I've
bought at thrift stores for $1 each. Some are elegant and some
are plain, but the paper is durable enough to make it through
the mail.

Mid term exam

October 12th, 2006 at 07:07 pm

We had our first exam in my intro to healthcae servcies class...I think I did ok, I just wo't know my grade until next week. Seems like nothing I studied was on the exam. 1-7 chapters we were to study and everything he had us to go over and review was not on the test. But I have to wait and see from this point

Time to stop the madness

October 12th, 2006 at 07:04 pm

Well my week of uncontrollable spending has come to an end...I was just not in the mood to cook anything for breakfast, lunch or dinner so all week I ate out. Well now it is time to get focus and back on track. I was just so stressed out with my class and therefore just did not time to do anythig but study, my room is a mess as well but I am will get that straighten out over the weekend

Uncontrollable splurging

October 10th, 2006 at 04:45 pm

I have been so lazy for two days in a row I have eaten out for lunch and then tomorrow again...I promised a friend I would meet him for lunch. The today bought me a Vera Bradley bag that I have wanted for a while so I decided to treat myself ($85) but I guess we can splurge once in a while
