Holding breath until the week is done...

Hate to be bitching....but...what a shitastic week this has been.

Monday opens the week up with me getting a flat tire on the way to work.  How does CV get a flat with tires that she only bought in December, you ask?  Easy.  My alignment was off again and it shredded my front two tires...AGAIN.  Thank God we didn't take my car to Greenville this past weekend or we would have been stranded on the highway.  Fortunately the guy who was taking care of me was nice and helped me out some by charging me for only one tire and the alignment.  Doesn't sound like much, but when the tires themselves are just about $12 shy of being $100 each, you take every little bit you can get.  The Toyota guy and I are now going to be keeping extra close eye on them from now until my next oil and filter change.  

Tuesday, more car trouble...but thankfully not my car.  Prez and I get kept late at work because one of our other co-worker's car is dead.  Her boyfriend told her not to mess with it....even though we thought it was just the battery.  So...guess what it was?   The battery.  And then the fucker had the nerve to get all bitchy at our co-worker for calling him down to MCG for a dead battery.  Asshole.  Sometimes, gents...girls are not COMPLETELY helpless with cars.  Prez and I changed my tire all on our own with minimal help from a passing stranger.  

Wednesday, the co-worker from last night asks me to start her test while she takes care of her still dead battery.  No problem, right?  All was going well...right up until I slipped in a puddle on the floor of the testing room and twisted my foot.  I limped around trying to do the test until the manager came in to tell me where my battery trouble co-worker was.  I then told her that I would need to go to Employee Health to get checked out and file an accident report.  She thankfully relieved me so I went and got checked out.  I sprained a few ligaments in my foot.  (heavy sarcasm)  Yay, go me.  I can still walk.  It just hurts.  So I took today off to rest and recover. 

Today wasn't bad for me other than feeling guilty and limping whenever I had to move.  Prez continued the crappy trend though.  Tomorrow she and I are going in only for a few hours.  She's supposed to have tomorrow off, but she was unable to finish her stuff for today and feels that she has to go back to do so.  I should rest some more so I can come into work on Sunday.  However I'm going in because I just feel bad because I haven't been able to do ANYTHING I was supposed to do this week for various reasons and I also have to turn in some paperwork.

...

Pray for us.

Oh man. You really are having a shitty week. O_O

Thanks so much for the offer Dani. And thanks for listening to me bitch. I really needed that. (chuckles) Prez and I finished our crappy week out with the couple of hours we were supposed to only go in for turning into 5 out of 8 hours. Yes, I know we should be grateful that it wasn't the whole day, but Prez wasn't supposed to be in at ALL so that is really of little comfort. Crappy, crappy week. From your journal, it sounds like you aren't having much fun right now either. And neither is your hubby if the email was any indication. I wish you two great luck and let me know if there is anything I can do, 'kay?

HMMM that does sound horrible, with machines and nature conniving. Glad that it turned into a sprained ankle rather than something else. I believe elevating it is the best thing to do when you are resting up.

And having to get into work despite it has to be bothersome. If you need any physical labor during the next week that you don't want to do, and it's legal for me to do then just email me for it. I'm not too busy beyond Monday.

Thanks for the offer sakraida82. Not sure we'd be able to take you up on it. But, thanks all the same. We should be good this week though. Hopefully.

Oh well, by the way I am watching the series that the avatar you have there is from. I like Hakkai personally. And I want to smack Goku from time to time. God he whines. -_-

(laughs) Hakkai is great. The whole team reminds me of a family. Sanzo's the irate dad that just wants some quiet and smacks the kids around when they don't sit still. Hakkai is the mom, trying to keep peace and sanity within the ranks. And Gyojo and Goku are the unruly kids that can never just sit and be quiet for two seconds.

I think Goku's cute some times. But, yeah he does whine. That's why Sanzo smacks him around so much. (chuckles) I, personally love Sanzo and Gyojo. I love Sanzo's Japanese voice actor especially. That guy has some serious range! And he's in a lot of my favorite series. Yami no Matsuei and Pet Shop of Horrors to name a couple.
