A Day from Hell

barb's blab

This has been the work day from hell where all the idiots come out of the woodwork. I can't even start to describe it here, but then at the same time seeing idiot claimants at work, I also called on the phone and talked to a person about one of the idiots, and that was like talking to another moron. Ok, you get the picture, these people we see can sometimes not be real. And the people working for the state, trying to help and advise them, well they are worse.
Ok enough is enough. I'm going to bed, so I can be well rested for whatever walks into work tomorrow.
Peace and love, Barbara

4 days home !!!!

barb's blab
Home now for a long 4 days of no work until we leave again Tuesday for MS. Just going to relax, watch Olympics, catch up on TIVO programs, do some cross stich on a baby quilt (now I'm acting like an old grandma) and hopefully start work on our train set, Arthur has decided not to go elaborate with the train track set up but instead simple layout for train and then make it a village with all the dept. 56 we have been purchasing on e-bay. So in other words 4 days off, but still busy. Well i have 4 days, Arthur still works here in Columbia on Fridays and Mondays.
Ok, you must be really bored if you have read all of this so far.

Well I got flowers for Valentines too. but my roses are yellow, because as we all know, that is my favorite color!
It is beautiful in mid-mo today, a high of 65, but unfortuneately I was inside working allday. Now I'm inside writing a blog, while Arthur is outside washing cars. Whats wrong with me, I need fresh air.
Some day I will post pictures too, as soon as I have Bruce show me how, it took me awhile to learn how to post a blog. But I try
Everyone have a great day and I'm thinking of "everyone" on this Valentines Day. You all know who you are.

It's winter in Mid MO, nice little flurries outside, I'll take that instead of the foot of snow in the Northeast. Although on a weekend with nothing to do, staying inside and watching the snow is good. the Olympics are on, maybe I would be inspired to "luge" down the street, or speed skate on my butt as I walked down to the mailbox. Yes, on my butt as I know on an icy downhill driveway I would not have the grace to stay upright.

Leslie, glad you had a fun trip, join us on the blog with a good report.

It's 12:30 a.m. Thurs nite and/or Friday morning. We have just completed a 1000 mile round trip to Mississippi that started on Tues. I am only awake because I drove the first hour and half and the last hour, in between those times, I made my little bed w/ my pillow and blankey in the back seat and slept a solid 3 hours. Oh how I love to sleep in a moving car. Seriously I do.
Life on the road is over now for about 10 days. Next week just close by clinics and home every night. Hip hip hooray

Hi all, Today in Franklin, NC, it's 5:30 a.m. here (4:30) back home and I'm up showered and getting ready to pack up the suitcases one more time.

Tonight after work we will drive to Murfreesboro, TN which the first half of the drive is beautiful, windy road along side a rushing mountain river/stream/creek etc. Part of it was used for the rapid racing during the Olympics in 19___ (the year they were in Atlanta) The bad part is we drive this after dark now and can't see it well, in the next 2 months as the day gets longer, we'll stop so i can take some pics and share them here. It is beautiful area.
