Home Sick

Posted in this that on April 11, 2011 by jessicastarr

I miss my family.  I am bored out here.  I do love it but I miss people.  I miss going to get my nails done with Lisa, working my part time job… Talking to my neighbors.  My sis has pics of my girls on her FB.  I miss them.  I miss my mom and dad.  I miss my farm.

We have a wonderful house in Mesa with a fenced in yard.  What is  hard is Andy and I don’t have friends.  Sure we have our co workers and that is how I have made some of my bestest friends to this day but they pretty much all live on the other side of the city.  Over an hour from here.

I hate my job,  This doctor I work for is a *excuse language* fucking jackass.  I swear he does work that doesn’t need to be done.  He acts pissed if someone cancels and it’s our fault.  I do have an interview Friday with another staffing service. I get that money runs the business but your clients are #1.  Don’t tell patients your doing 2 crowns so they match… are you flipping kidding?  There is so much more I could vent about him but he isn’t worth my typing.

I tried to get back with ESI but for some reason I didn’t get a call back even though I passed all tests online and at the facility.  I know I left on good terms, or so I was told.  I need to find something else.

I am sure me hating my job isn’t helping my home sick situation.  Thank god I can call my mom up all the time.  Hopefully Winston and I will be heading out on a road trip home this summer.  Then I can get some stuff out of storage.  Plus I would love to bring Lily back and road trip with her.  I think we would have sooo much fun just the 2 .. er 3 including Wu.

Can anyone help me get a job here??  Maybe that’s all I need.

A new job.



Good Morning Arizona!

Here we are!

Well we made it to Arizona on New Years eve.  Talk about a crazy drive down however.  We left on Wed morning around 430am.  We hit fog big time through Iowa and up to Kansas.  We finally stopped in Liberal, KS for the night… OMG what a hole in the wall hotel.  Never again will we stay in an Economy Inn.  We then left around 6am Thursday and it started out pretty decent.  We then got to New Mexico and the wind storms were crazy.  We had our own version of a video game dodging tumble weeds and dust storms.  We then had to skip going through ABQ due to the huge snow storm.  We ended up going down into Las Cruces, NM and stopping around 230p at a Motel 6.  There were so many snow storm warnings we were ready to stop. Within an hour of us stopping we got hit by flurries big time and they aren’t used to snow down there.  Anyway, it was a very nice motel and made up for the night before. We were so exhausted we fell asleep by 6p that night.  We got on the road at 7a the next morning and the roads were decent. We actually had to go through a boarder crossing since we were so close to Mexico but were waived right on through… am thinking we didn’t look to foreign to the patrol! lol  We then drove up through Tucson and made it to dad’s around 230p. 

Andy’s job is going wonderful for him.  Heckuva lot better than Albertville. I am still looking for a job.  I have applied for a mazillion places, but nothing yet… am kind of liking being a stay at home pug mom but it will get old soon. Thank goodness Andy will be making enough!!

I am going to go do a little shopping then take the boys to the dog park.  There is a fantastic park here in Fountain Hills that I try to take the boys to daily.

Have a great day!

Usually we don’t have snow this far into to April… years ago maybe but not now. They are saying 6 or more inches!!!  I have a feeling I won’t be working tomorrow and Lori said she would being she lives way closer to the office than I obviously.  I would stay at her house but Andy works a full day today and if I do go in tomorrow who knows if I would be able to get home tomorrow afternoon. UGH!

My best friend Jen works at Proex and is learning to be a photographer.  She needs to move up a level I guess and asked if I could bring the dogs in on Sunday for a photo shoot!  The sitting is totally free and so are the proofs.  If I want regular pics I would pay per sheet.  Not to shabby since the sitting is usually $60 for 2 dogs.  So on Saturday I am giving the boys a tubby so they are all squeeky clean.  I may pack a couple of their jackets and outfits and dress them up to.  I will FOR SURE bring the hedgehogs since they LOVE to play with them and might make for a cute photo.  oh and can’t forget treats!  They will do ANYTHING for a treat!  I am pretty excited about it.  Jen wants me to be in a couple pics with the boys to… eh I didn’t want to, I wanted it to be all about them, but she said I have to!   Well if anything it will be a nice gift for Andy, a pic of me and the boys.  Hopefully I will be able to post a couple of the pics here.  I will have to scan them from my mom’s computer since we don’t have a printer.

well off to get ready for work!  Have a great day!

Happy April’s fool…

And there ain’t fooling me ha.  Nothing to exciting happened today.  Andy texted me saying he was fired.  Yeah right like I am going to believe him.  Then the Doc I work for rotated my screen on the computer.  Ding a ling… He didn’t think I would know how to fix it.  Trust me, it drove me crazy until I could figure it out however.  It was hard to move the mouse since it wanted to do opposite of what my mind was used to.  I tried telling Andy that I am pregnant but he wouldn’t bite.  He knows me to well that if I were I would have woke him up right away this morning to tell him. 

So my drive this morning SUCKED.  I was going to wait until 9a to go in but said the heck with it.  They said the roads weren’t to bad and just ramps and bridges were slick.  Well I got over to North St Paul area and the freeway was all ice.  Then it cleared up a bit and on interstate 94 going to Wisconsin there was a semi that jack-knived.  Well I ended up sitting in traffic for a good 1/2 hour.  They closed 2 of the 3 lanes.  So it ended up taking me 1 1/2 hours to get to work.  Oh well that’s what I get for driving so far every day.

Well I am going to go finish watching Biggest Loser.  I LOVE LOVE this show.  Have a great night all… and AM, HURRY UP AND HAVE THAT BABY!!!!
