Life-quite an adventure!

Just when I thought work couldn't get more anxiety provoking...it did. It started bright and early this morning-before 9AM. One of the middle management people from SoCar came to our morning meeting and announced that since that state had frozen medicare/caid rates, the company was seriously in a deficit and so all of the facilities needed to step up and save some money. What it amounted to was the elimination of 2 positions within our facility. One of them is the admission coordinator (which makes no sense at all-but what do I know). The other position was the third case manager. Now I understand yesterday's events. So thank you very much, I now have pretty much tripled my case load Ahh job security....right!

Then about 11:30 a state surveyor arrived on a complaint. Could things get any worse today? but after a short investigation and about two hours, she was gone and the complaint was not substantiated.

Come on Thimbles weekend.....I need to be with friends and lots and lots of fabric. I think now I just might need to go into my sewing room and make a few more of those step one blocks in Double Delight. So far, I have 4. 116 of these bad boys to go and ten I can do step 2-that would be another 120 blocks.

So sorry about the work stress! Just try to leave it there, and let your quilting (and maybe a little Calgon?) take you away when you're home!
As for Double Delight, just pretend you're eating an elephant-one bite at a time!

I am so so glad that I have retired from nursing! I am having fun at the Park making my $7.45/hr. Hope to see you at Thimbles.

I'm sorry that work is so stressful right now. I really hope that this economy gets turned around soon because everyone is so overworked and overstressed. Can't wait to see you at Thimbles! Wish we could bring mimosas!!!
