Drama, Drama, Drama

I missed out on posting yesterday because we had no power all day. The day before it was on and off. Publishing Sunday's post and linking it up to the blog carnival and then leaving a comment on that website took hours and three separate times because the power kept going out.
So, I've officiallly lost out on NaBloPoMo again this year. I lost last year for the very same reason. I could have pre-published scheduled posts but Blogger has been so unpredictable this past month or two--sometimes not publishing on time or other times publishing all my scheduled posts at once (with correct dates attached no less) so I was hesitant to use that feature. The way I look at it, Google owes me a prize.

Friday evening we had a bunch of drama with our staff over missing money, privacy invasion, borrowed (without asking) items, accusations flying everywhere, tears flowing, etc. 
Because we've been incredibly short staffed with people taking vacation or sick days having this little drama, with one lady threatening to quit, caused me no end of grief. And, sadly, one of the prominent thoughts in my mind was how it was going to affect my day off. I try to have Saturday as my day off where I can pull away and get a bit of a break.
  Sure enough, I was pulled out of bed in the morning for a meeting. I know this is one of the drawbacks of being an administrator but it is still hard.

There isn't really a funny side to theft but I have a story to tell you that still makes me chuckle. I'll share that tomorrow.

On the good news side: Sara has been declared pneumonia free. We're still keeping her on an antibiotic temporarily for a couple weeks to keep her safe from infection.

Exactly One Year Ago (Yesterday): Chola 


  1. So happy to hear little Sara is doing better!

    Stress stinks doesn't it? It seems to come down all at one time. Hoping your next day off is a relaxing one.

  2. I'm happy to hear about Sara, but sorry about the other drama. I hope you get a day off soon!


  3. First, YEAH for SARA! So glad to hear she's on the mend. That's such a relief.

    And sorry about the power. That can be very frustrating. Hope it's stable again.

    I'll be watching for funny theft story and how that turns out.

    Cheers, jj
