I hope I don't get grounded for this, BUT...

I love my Blog Mamma. She's the BESTEST!

Always there when you need her....

but don't even THINK about asking her to do something that might be considered 'Artsy Fartsy!'


She is.....The Anti-Craft!!

But what a body! Hopefully I inherit that part!

*runs away giggling*


I'm going to absentee vote!

Well, maybe not but I'd sure like to!

My near sister Oddybobo is running for Judge!!

Go show your support!

WARNING - Work Post

I worked hard to get the job I have. I worked my tail end off to prove myself. I was given a nearly impossible deadline, and I met it. Even after the entire server CRASHED AND BURNED two days before the deadline and I had to put everything BACK into the system manually I still made it.

I had been working 10 to 12 hours a day to get everything done. I asked for help, pleaded for help, and then downright begged for help. I provided documentation showing that an average work week to get all of the expected duties done for me is 80+ hours....I was told that "I need to prioritize better".

So I stopped asking for help, and I stopped working all the extra hours (I'm salary, whether I work 5 minutes or 12 hours I get paid the same). Things weren't getting done, and suddenly they wanted to know why. I wanted to say "Because I've taken some advise and prioritized better, and YOU are not on the priority list!!" but instead I simply provided the same documentation about my daily duties that I have been trying to get someone to pay attention to for the past year.

"We need to get you some help" was the response.


Did I just hear that right?

After a year of everything NOW they want to give me help?

Maybe it's because they found out that I've applied and interviewed for a different job within the company. One that pays more. One with a completely different downside...a lot more traveling. It's one of the jobs I aspired to have when I started at the company 9 years ago.

I don't know if I should stay where I'm at and hope that help is really on the way, or hope I get this other job.

Happy Birthday to the little Sproingtagion!
