Since we last spoke:
1. My job security has been threatened by the terminal illness of a doctor we partner with.
My clinic worked very closely with an ENT (Ear, Nose, and Throat) doctor. He sent us most of our patients. He has since been diagnosed with throat cancer (the saddest irony), and has closed up shop. As a consequence, our business has dried up. I figure I’ll be first to go since my coworkers consist of a lady who has worked here for over twenty years and a trained audiologist that sees most of our patients.
2. My other job was stolen from me by a co-worker who was hired months after I was.
It all started with her getting some of my work in the interest of “fairness,” but now she’s getting all the work and I’m getting the shaft. The theory is that because she’s been placed on a temporary hold from her weekday job since the “season’s slow” that she’s getting all the cleaning jobs instead of me. The problem with this is that she most likely was put on this hold because she’s not exactly a stellar employee.
I’m trying not to be bummed about this. I don’t think it’s working.
3. I began training for a 5k.
This you may already know since apparently my fitbit has been broadcasting my progress (and also lack thereof) for the past few weeks. Dang. I should figure out how to turn that off.
The idea behind this was that I’d get in shape and do the Color Me Rad in Richmond. Even if I’m not in perfect shape for the race, it should still be a lot of fun.
4. My great grandmother passed away.
She deserves her own post, but I just can’t talk about it. I will say it was completely heartbreaking and I’ve been sort of cross and snippy with everyone since the funeral.
In short, I’ve been busy with life and….well, I haven’t been blogging. I’ll keep trying to post when I can, but the focus this year is on trying to lose weight/run forever. And not blogging.
