I thought I had some more of these swap blocks ready to go, but I guess not. So, here's one set. I should have them all done by this Thursday and have them mailed off.
It's been a quiet night...that's a good thing considering yesterday. The boy says his foot is swollen and his toes hurt. I told him it's going to hurt for a bit. I explained to him it's not like he stepped on a tack...he's got some decent trauma to the foot. That screw was in there for a good five hours or so. Add to that...the DR. had to numb it up, so the needle pokes are going to add to the discomfort and swelling that he is experiencing.
And on other news fronts, I told my new employer where they could put their job. I signed up for a certain part time schedule so my feet could work into working again and they had me working 8+ hour shifts, telling me that I had to work that much...it's company policy to work until the work is done. I'm sorry, but if you tell someone that they are hired for a certain schedule you keep to that. You don't hire someone, change the terms and then tell them to take it or leave it. In my case, I told them I can leave it. I've been working long enough and have a solid idea of what I expect from a work environment and what they can expect from me that I really don't have to put up with any B.S. at this point. Consider it a right of maturity. I'm claiming it.
So, after a long conversation with my mother, I am headed to my daughter's house towards the end of this month. I have a feeling from what she (my daughter) has said that she could use the help. I figure this will be my last chance for a while as I will actually need go back to work when I get home. Some may say that I am being a doting grandmother/mother, but let them think what they want. Too often in modern society we are forced to put our families second or worst. I'm taking back my right to be a mother, wife, and now, grandmother. I serve a higher, more apprecitated position when I tend to those needs. Corporate America can kiss my a**. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
I think that's it for now. Thanks for listening...I know it's sort of soapbox material, but I think that the group here understands the deeper importance of family over finances.
To all, a good night of quilting, and a great day of family.
