Busy, Busy

I have been ignoring my blog this week. This is due to the fact that I am starting classes again next week.

I have been busy doing my Quarterly house cleaning. Trying to catch up on things I have let slide during summer classes because if you know me at all, you know this will not be done again until around Christmas. Hehe. Wait listen for it....did you all hear mom groan? She is rolling her eyes too.

I also found out yesterday, after it was too late to do anything about it, that I did not get the memo for my clinical's this fall. I apparently need to go get scrubs, white tennis shoes, have a physical and get my immunization records along with another 3 or 4 new shots. I freaking hate getting shots so now I am not only crushed for time but I have to get fucking shots!!!!
I called my docor this morning and asked for my immunization records. No go - When they called me back they informed me they were no where to be found. GREAT.. so I called the offices where my pediatrician used to be before retirement, first off the lady says we do not have those from that LONG AGO, I said thank you. I knew records only had to be kept for ten years but I thought maybe since my Doctors now are affiliated with this conglomerate there just may have been a chance but NOPE. Finally I call my high school and explain that yes, it has been over 20 years since I have been there but is there a chance they would still have these records? The nurse took my name and # and said she would get back to okay. To my joy, within 15 minutes she called me and said I could pick them up at the office. I love my alamarter a whole lot better today than I did back then. Anyway, this saved me from having to get an additional set of 3 shots.

On a good note, I am not working for the elementary school everyday this year. They couldn't work it around my class schedule. Damn the luck:). Can you tell how upset this has made me? I am going to fill in where needed if it works into my schedule. See Cookie, I am employed!!! If this isn't enough I will just have to work alittle more around here on him, he'll forget all about it.

Enough for now.

Ummm... if you were working at an Elementary School shouldn't you have had ALL your shots to begin with? I mean, seriously.. those little buggers are like 2 legged plague rats! All the teachers I know are always, ALWAYS sick.. it's a conspiracy I tell ya! A conspiracy! (I just don't know for what or by whom yet, but I'm working on it.. gimme time!) ;)

Quarterly House Cleaning?!!!
Wait.....can you hear it?!!
That's me laughing!!!!

Bubba's Sis said...

Wow, quarterly? It's semi-annual here....

Sorry about the shots. That sucks.

I'm impressed that you clean quarterly. For me, it's usually around Christmas when I have 35 people getting ready to show up:) I just hide things in my bedroom and shut the door.

Sorry about the shot thing. Do you need me to come and hold your hand? Or buy you a drink?

Caution Flag said...

Golly, that's a lot of shots. Be sure you buy some ice cream after the shots. It will help you recover!

Don't you hate it when no one saves records? I had to get all new baseline tests when I moved to Texas. My records in CA were never sent or got lost...blah, blah, blah! So I had to do the bone density, cariopulmonary stuff all over again. God my body loves radiation!

But you know? If you run for public office, they will find every record showing every aspirin you ever took, every filling you ever had, and every time you ditched school. Anything you were looking for will show up.

Good luck, and thank God for your school nurse!

I just found you at Holy Crappers.

I returned to school 1 1/2 years ago. I had to get a shot, also, because I could not prove that I had my tetanus shot within the last ten years. I did get the shot, but the doctor's office couldn't find it! And I had to get blood drawn to prove that I had immunity for the other kid diseases. I called my high school from YEARS ago for this info. I was waiting for a chuckle. Nope. Oh well. I'm here now.

Teri said...

Oh, and I am with you on the quarterly cleaning. Only it's more like semester-ly.

Take your time...slow down...and we will be here for ya when you have caught up on things. I am glad about the shots...shots stink.

PPP - I was thinking the same thing as I was calling all around trying to find records. I cannot believe they didn't make me get shots working with kids.
BHE - I am thinking shots of a different kind are in order.
