    Add me to the job hunt. I've got 6 apps out there right now. Finding a job is half the battle, liking it the other half :rolleyes:

    I'm glad that you can work from home. We didn't get any snow. We expected 2-4 and got nothing :confused3 I'm not complaining, but wish the forcasters could get it right once in a while

    I worked yesterday and am still at work today. The kids spent the night with their dad, and the county put those working up in a hotel for the night. Thanks goodness as it would have taken me 3+ hours to get home. The bulk of it started just as we were getting off.

    Hi everyone. :wave:

    We are closed today due to the weather. We had about a foot of snow on top of what we already had before. I hope that the road to our office is cleared as it still had snow on it from the last storm.

    Yesterday I went into work early so that I could leave early as I knew it was going to get bad around rush hour. I didn't want to have a many hour commute, I know several people who had super long commutes due to the weather.

    I am also thinking about signing up for the 2012 half marathon, although I am not sure as I am intrigued by the Marathon relay, but those details have not been released yet.

    I spent my morning shoveling. I need to do some stuff for my job yet today. I also need to find out if my volunteers are still meeting tonight because if they are I might need to go to that meeting. They are calling for the possibility of more snow tomorrow, Saturday and Tuesday and Wednesday I am done with this nuisance snow.

    Elin- I hope Bob continues to improve and that Button has no issues due to his pottery eating.

    Good luck to those of you searching for a job.

    Hugs to all of you.

    Good luck to you too!

    Well...my boss told me last week I could work from home and didn't have a problem with it when I told him I was planning on it last night and didn't have a problem at 10am this morning but then he sent our department (me & 2 others) an email at 1:30 'to communicate expectations, especially in light of the new strategic plan and staff being more “proactive, accountable and nimble”'. This email was cc'd to his boss so someone must have complained.:headache:

    Last week they had a 10am opening and the parking lot wasn't plowed. I cannot risk hurting my feet by slipping in that mess. I heard from a friend that this week they did a good job on the parking lot but last week I was told by the person in charge of the building that it was done good enough.

    Now I don't know if I should just do a timesheet for a vacation day today or not. I did work but I may have a hard time using all my time this year anyways. I have about 35 days to use before 11/4/11. I can carry 5 forward. I really can't take vacation from say mid September til late November so maybe I should just put in for a day and be done with it.:confused3

    They let someone go yesterday so now the entire building is wondering who is next. It used to be such a great place to work. And while revenue is down a bit things never really got that bad so I just don't understand this new atmosphere.:sad2:

    Glad you didn't have deal with the traffic mess.

    princess:What wonderful news!princess:


    It will be interesting to see what the plans are for the relay. Mary K really wants the Donald medal so we'll probably stick with that for 2012.

    Be safe out there, everyone. What a nasty winter we have had already.

    They decided to put a trach in last night. Bob had insisted that I teach yesterday so I got to the hospital just as they were wheeling Bob into the OR. He came through it well, and the surgeon said he had experienced a number of firsts with Bob. He has never gone into ICU to discuss options with a patient and the family to find the patient on a ventilator, reading a book and writing notes in a steno pad. Bob actually signed his own consent form which was again a first for the surgeon!

    I'm glad to hear that the surgery went well, Elin.

    Bernadette - Work sounds stressful for you now. That can't be fun. I hope it improves sooner rather than later.

    I hope the trach works well for him. We want him to heal quickly. Will they move him to a rehab facility at some point?

    This is wonderful news that he set a first such as that. Sounds like he is doing well for the circumstances.

    At this point, Deb (and everyone else), I have no idea where we go. He is still in ICU. They want him out of there for many reasons: He is mentally alert, he has been there far too long (longest of anyone in the unit) and they want him to be able to start some therapy, which cannot be done in ICU.

    They put a PEG feeding tube into his stomach yesterday while I was teaching. Again, he came through the surgery just fine. His BP is elevated and that is one reason he is still in ICU. That has to be maintained at a much lower level and it is not happening without constant monitoring. If they can get that stabilized and if the first feeding today goes well, they would ship him out of ICU almost immediately.

    Last night he "told" Kristin and me that he was going to come home on Tuesday. I asked him what army of nurses and support staff he thought was coming with him. I cannot take care of him as he is right now. And he has not yet learned how to take care of his own trach and PEG. So... it won't be Tuesday! ;)

    The speech therapist said it may be months before he can eat solid food. We have not broached that subject with him. His list of things he wants to eat and drink has gone onto the fourth legal pad page!

    Off to teach a bit this morning and then Kristin and I will spend some time with him again today. He got tired quickly last night so she was only with him about an hour. It was good for both of them, but not enough!

    Elin-continued prayers for Bob's recovery. Sounds like he's ready to do what it takes to get home!

    I'm afraid it's just the beginning.:sad2: They let 4 people go Wednesday. On a more positive note my boss came in to talk me yesterday morning and told me not to freak out about the email he "had" to send because his boss said something. It is still a bit worrisome that he felt the need to send it.

    So we will specifically pray that his blood pressure stabilizes quickly as that sounds like the most serious problem at the moment.

    There is so many layoffs and repostioning of jobs going on. My mother has worked at her job for 46 years and she found out this week that they want to hire an outside catering service to take over the hot lunch program for her school district. It's still got to be evaluated by committee and go through whatever process school take. She has no idea when or if she will be out of her job. She was planning to retire in 3 years so this has totally thrown her for a loop. I cannot go into detail of the issues at my job, but emails would be a very minot problem :sad2: Hopefully I can share soon and get it off my chest.
