Into the Wild

I made a comment in the closet-oops, I meant breakroom- here at work about how cold it was inside my office. Come to think of it, inside this whole building. I was telling this to the custodian who happened to be in there with me (two is the maximum capacity for the breakroom by the way) working on the soap dispenser. She told me that I probably needed to dress in layers because they don't turn the heat on until November.


Ok, so the game plan is to basically try NOT to get frostbite while typing and to hover near the microwave, copier and fax for the only sources of heat. Great.

Beef Stew Day

It's a little chilly today. Its time for big pots of vegetable soup, chili and beef stew. YES! I have beef stew in the crock pot for dinner tonight. Fix a little bit of sweet cornbread...yum...makes me almost forget about how badly I want another job than the one I have right now.

Oops...did I say that?

Yeah, so, I'm not crazy about it. It's not horrid by any means, don't get me wrong. It pays the bills and that's the main thing. I am scared of this job. It worries me and makes me anxious. I really don't want to be any more anxious than what I already am. I am boring myself slightly while writing about this so I think this is all I will say today. I make partake of this ranting again at another time.

Tuesday Torture

It is very hard to get a prescription called in today. I am having the hardest time. First, I had to go through the call screener person at the doctors office. She says, "Thanks. I will give this message to the nurse." Then I wait on the nurse to call. She does call and listens to my demands and says, "Thanks. I will give this message to the doctor." I proceed to wait. I go to the bathroom. Without my phone. Bad mistake. I get a voicemail from the nurse that she spoke to the doctor and will call my prescription in. Ok, that's cool. Right? No. I get another call later on saying that is not going to work. That prescription is not covered. NO!! I have to call her back. I go through the same call screener person that I did this morning. I just need to talk to Vickie at this point. I have already called my insurance and I have got some juicy information that I need to tell her. All the medication needs is prior approval and they will cover it. Instead, the call screener person says, "Thanks. I will give this to the nurse."
