I hab ab colb!

Tee Hee. Dont'cha just LOVE summer colds? I'm drugging up with mucinex and sudafed. Hoping that it doesn't settle in my chest. I think BabyS gave it to me. That poor thing is so sickly. She's ALWAYS sick. She went home very cranky Thursday, had a Dr.'s appt, and come to find out she has an ear infection. She's gone Friday and Monday, and comes back yesterday. BabyS was blowing snot bubbles outta her nose all day long. She came back today, still congested, but at least no bubbles today!

So I grew a pair yesterday. =) Things are kinda stressful at the daycare. We've pretty much lost confidence in our manager, we ask for things, are told that she'll take care of it, and 3 months later, we are forced to call the owner.... Let me back up...

Our facility has 2 separate buildings. There's the "baby building" (where I work) that has carpeted floors, and "up the hill" or the office building. NO carpet in that one. So, ever since I started working there, our vacuum has had issues. Mainly, it needed a new bag probably 6 months ago. It got to a point about 2 weeks ago that the vacuum was parked in a corner, and we were sweeping the floors. (how freaking white-trash is that???) We've been asking for as long as I've been there for bags, and well, she's gonna get it, blah blah blah..... first we only asked once or twice a month, then weekly, then nearly every day.... no bag. So keep this story in mind as I relay our other issues...

When I signed my contract, I was supposed to have a review and a raise after 90 days. My 90 days were up last pay period. Obviously, I didn't have my review and no raise. SO, I went and talked to the bosslady, and gently reminded her that I was due for my review. She wrote herself a note and said she'd take care of it. In being a gossip at work, found out from 2 other co-workers who have been there for for 6 months, that they hadn't had THEIR reviews either! grrr....

Last night, after I was "stuck" with the toddlers. Usually not a big deal, but one of those children is a biter. *sigh* To top it off, I'm fighting off a monster cold.oH, and the bosslady, according to the person who was covering her, and not taking care of the toddlers, went home to take a NAP!!! NOT the best day. So, I'm walking out to my car with my dirt icky feet (Jody calls them "arkansas wal-mart feet), thinking about how I'm not feeling valued as an employee, just feeling utterly frustrated, I called the bosslady's bosslady.

Bosslady's bosslady listened to me, told me that she was glad that *someone* decided to say something to her, and told me that she would get the bags in the morning, and see what she could do about the other things.... I had a hard night trying to sleep, very worried that this would turn around an bite me in the butt. On the up side, we got vacuum cleaner bags today!!! ahhhh no more big chunks of dirt on the floor. =) I'm happy about that!!!!

Ok, so, I'm gonna close, I'm tired, sleepy, eyeballs bulging, head ache, sniffles.... I need to wash the spitup and dirt off and wait for Jody to get home. He had to drive to Myrtle Beach today.... lucky him.....

I know how you feel. I also have a cold, or something. My throat hurts, I can't swallow, I have body aches...I think its more from the smoke in the air that won't seem to clear. It's frustrating, because I finally have a few days off school, and I feel like...well, horrible.

Love you, hope you feel better.
