Bitter Betty

So a quick update on my "friend" who had her baby boy on Friday. Apparently he was having some issues with breathing and wasn't crying so they decided to send him up to the children's hospital for more care and to check his heart. Prayers were asked for and many were received and in the end, he ended up being fine. I changed my status to ask for prayers and never got a thank you from the family or even an update to know how he was doing. Maybe I just expected too much. And thinking back to her status she had made not wanting Friday to come, I can't help but think something turned out to be wrong with him because of it. I really and truly believe that Karma is a bitch, and hey, I probably am too. I take things much too personally and then when responding am usually way more blunt than I should be. I guess I should be lucky that I have any friends at all.

I have so had it with Facebook and all the drama that comes with it. Someone updates their status and you comment on it and get bitched out for putting in your two cents. If you don't want me to comment on it, don't put it as your status! Or people say things and then totally change it around as the comments come. A friend of mine is scheduled to have a C-Section on Friday. This is her first child. Earlier she updated her status to say "Friday DOES NOT need to come! Life is quickly turning in only one direction, and that is upside down... Terrified and not sure what to do to stop 1/14/2011 from getting here..." Is it just me or does it sound like she is scared to have the c-section? So of course people comment and say you'll be fine, no need to worry, blah blah blah. She then fires back with "The C-Section is not the issue guys lol...Just a long week already". Okay, that's understandable, but why the desire for the big day not to come? So I say are you dreading the fact that you will have no time for yourself whatsoever? Her comment? "Nope, just ready to find out what the future has in store for me next..." You are ready to find out what the future has in store for you but don't want Friday, ultimately the future, to come? WTF? Why I bothered commenting on her status in the first place is beyond me. I have gotten bitched out through emails, called all kinds of nasty names, had someone bad mouth my daughter, and anymore I just don't feel like its worth it. I am SERIOUSLY considering getting rid of it all together. I'm too old for this shit.

Back to Work

Well after being on maternity leave for close to four months, I had my first night back to work last night. I'm happy to say that I made it through the shift, but apparently it was pretty obvious that I was tired come early morning. I don't know how I used to stay up all night! Everybody working was glad to see me and have me back, which made it nice, but trying to catch up on four months of information is proving to be rather difficult. I work in an Assisted Living Facility in the Memory Care section and before my leave we had 24 residents living in our area. A couple unfortunately passed away and we have a few new faces as well. Each resident has a service plan, documenting their needs and level of care, and we also keep progress notes of each resident. Being a medication aide, I'm responsible for knowing what is included in both. That's a lot of reading! My administrator said I only needed to read the last couple of weeks, but I would feel better knowing everything I've missed. Call me crazy I guess. Working nights I have more free time than other shifts so I will eventually get caught up on everything. The hardest thing has been having to leave my little Selena at home. Thankfully I am currently living with my Mom so I know she is well taken care of and she already sleeps through the night so I don't have to worry about her keeping my Mom up, as she works during the day. I know they say it will get easier, but when? I guess like everything you just have to give it time. Little one is crying now so I must go. Will try to write more later. Thanks for reading!

Welcoming 2011...

So here we are, January 1st, 2011. The first day of a new year! One of my resolutions this year is this blog. I have a lot of friends and family with blogs and I decided today that I was going to make one too! It is my hope that I will be able to use this blog as a creative outlet, as well as keep in touch with friends and family.

2010 was a good year for me. I found out I was pregnant in January, and I had my sweet bundle of joy on September 8th. My life is forever changed. I look forward to the new year and all that it holds, hopefully you will join me on that adventure through this blog!
