Kindegarten Krud

The man who never gets sick has been sidelined with a wicked headcold.  One week in the school system, y'all.  Welcome to the germ factory!

And I ain't feeling so good myself.  Yippee.  And I have to work the weekend.  So I'm burning mine out with ginger tea liberally laced with whiskey and am making garlic/chicken broth for both of us.

I need to find a way to boost his immune system ASAP.  I don't need to be getting everything that comes down the pike from him and carrying it back to my residents.  Bleh.

The mandatory meeting was useless as predicted.  At least I got pizza and an hour and 38 minutes on the clock out of it.  And gave the guys in assisted living a thrill because I wore shorts.  ;)  (Don't get too excited, pervs in the audience.  They hit just above the knee.  But with the older gentlemen, it's all about the ankles.  And the ankle tattoos)

And, yes, I wore my "Bored" tshirt.  And all of my pagan jewelry (well, not ALL) because I am tired of having Jesus shoved down my throat every time I turn around.

Oh, and that bullshit about getting my hours back?  Yeahhhh....a whopping eight out of sixteen instead of seven.  Thanks, Marianne.  And the person who comes late and leaves early EVERY FUCKING DAY?  12 days out of 16.

I'm going to grit my teeth and hold my tongue, but the minute I find something(s) that give me full time hours, I am walking away.

At least I have Monday off, so I won't be paying for the priviledge of going in to work THREE days this week.  Then again, I only work TWO DAYS next week.  That's bullshit.

ANNNNND that four days that might have meant extra time to myself is now up in the air.  Kent's FF "brothers" are jerking him around.  He'd originally cut back his time to going out Friday and coming back Sunday.  Fine.  Now his ride is being difficult.  Kent said he'll Skype just the draft (there goes my eating everything coconut and watching Meryl Streep movies all weekend).  NOW he's getting a guilt trip that his not going is going to make things more expensive for everyone.

$40 a piece for the weekend.  And, yes, that sucks.  But I am having serious problems with men who make more money than we do and who have done nothing but use Kent as a figure of fun for the last few years whining.  And breaking promises.  You're losing your easy target?  Boo-fucking-hoo.  It's gotten worse since he came out to them, because it's made some of the members "uncomfortable."

I have completely readjusted my plans for this.  Again.  If he caves, I AM NOT going to be amused.

*deep breath*  *wheeze hack cough*

Time to add Tabasco to the whiskey.  I am NOT pulling a weekend shift sick.

Is your husband a kindergarten teacher? I am kinda glad mine will be teaching middle school. I'm hoping that age will have hardier immune systems but maybe that's a pipe dream. Hope y'all feel better soon!

Is the person who always comes in late and leaves early a relative of boss by any chance? Because that would be a plausible explanation why that kind of person gets more hours than you. Urgh.

I hope things improve in every way for you guys.

I swear, kids are giant germ incubators. My niece works in a day care center, and she was always dragging every creeping crud home when she still lived with my brother/her dad. Her immune system was normal. His? Not so much. Sigh.

I hope you feel much better soon! And I'll be so happy when you can escape that assisted living place. The staff there doesn't deserve you!

Hope you don't get sick, then.

Aw man that sucks.
