The random ramblings of a perpetual procrastinator. These are the life & times of a nursing home CNA navigating the ups & downs of living with someone who's living with a disability. A sometimes amusing, sometimes bittersweet look at my journey into real adulthood.

I guess if I have to.

It's 9:30 in the morning.  I had to set the dreaded alarm to wake up this morning, which I never have to do (thank you 2nd shift!).  I'm currently blogging getting ready because I have to leave the house in an hour.


Because I'm going to a freaking crappy buffet with my freaking coworkers to exchange gifts.

Why did I ever agree to this?

Actually, I didn't.  The coworkers I'm not all warm & fuzzy about decided on this plan - because none of them have anything to do.

Look fellow bloggers, I know I watch a lot of Maury & Springer before work, but I do actually get a lot of things done.  I have to cook a meal, tend to the animals, help DJ get up & dress, etc..

I do not have time to drive to sed crappy buffet, pretend to like the people I'm there with & then turn around & come back home so I can rush to get DJ & I ready. 

Oh right, did I mention I have to go to work later?  That's right.  So I should be eating crappy buffet, & then  going to work at my very physical job for 8 hours tonight.  Good plan!

Again, the people who planned this adventure have no clue - one is on medical leave, one is on a month long vacation & the other is a charge nurse who never leaves the damn desk all night.

Wanna know what the icing on the cake is too?  I decided not to go last week, & then one of the coworkers I do like says, "You're the only reason I'm going."  Guilt trip much?

So, I agreed...& now she's not sure if she's going.  Her BF has to get a drug test for his new job, which is actually very important...but how could she leave me with these sucky people that we can't stand?  Who will sit with me & judge them?  Sniffles.

Who am I kidding?  I don't need help with the judging part.

But I will feel lonely, so think of me.  Wish me a speedy lunch with no traffic on the way back!


  1. Ouch.. that sucks. I think I can relate to your "feeling" about the people you are working with. ;-)

  2. Don't you just hate that! I hate pretending everyone loves each other when in reality we want to choke each other! What a waste of time! I prefer Maury. You are NOT the father! Lol love it. Anywhoodle I never attend outside of work functions, I always suggest lunch room potlucks! Good luck lady :)

  3. Why are you eating chinese food buffet for breakfast? We should have baked our cupcakes again (& "accidentely" forget the sugar) LOL

  4. Hahaha! We went to Old Country Buffet, not for Chinese food. If it was breakfast I would have been all for it, but it was just regular food. Although I did have a really good salad. Yum!

  5. But just think of all that fodder for your blog!! :)

  6. i was just going to say if you're going to Old Country Buffet i feel really bad for you....and then i saw your comment!
