A-NNOY-ING

So, since the beginning of May I have been planning on an audit. I was told the 2nd week in May that I would have an audit on the 5th of June. I have one every 6 months, part of the job, and I HATE them. Audits are right next to root canals. Plus for some of you, you might recall my post back in December during my last audit. About the auditor that was hammering the shit out of me because he was here and we were being threatened with a ice storm. Lucky girl that I am, this audit was to be done by the same winner of a guy. The guy that I cannot e-mail one God Damned thing to because EVERYTHING I e-mail him bounces. Even my replies to him. I have to send them through someone else to get them to him. Friday I get an e-mail from the auditor asking that I e-mail him some preliminary reports so he will have a chance to get a head start before he gets here. I reply and forward my reply to the 3rd party and ask that my reply of: Not able to e-mail reports to him because like last time you were here, EVERYTHING BOUNCES TO YOU THAT I SEND. (Mind you I sent him this same message days earlier through my 3rd Party!) I also told him I cannot e-mail him the reports because our system does not have to ability to e-mail reports. I asked him to e-mail me an address and I would Fed-Ex them to him on Friday and he would have them Saturday. No response, all fucking day. I go home, thinking, oh well, I did my best, his loss.

Today comes, I drag my ass to work. Get here the earliest I can arrive without dropping the kid off to wait for daycare to open, and get all the reports he has requested in order, triple checked it and I go along with my day. At 10:00 AM I get a phone call. From the Auditor............HE IS NOT COMING THIS WEEK!! Seems that airfare is too high right now, did he just figure this out this MORNING? Could he call on FRIDAY to alert me? He then asked, "How about next week?" I reply, "Sorry, next week does not work for me, I scheduled 4 days off to recover from the audit." His reply, "oh." Yeah right Oh... SO! The week of the 26th I can look forward to doing the audit then. Fucker.

On a happier note. This weekend was packed full of activity. We had some of Scott's good friends come over for a get together on Saturday. When I met Scott, the first group of his friends I was introduced to was this group of friends. Quickly they became my friends. Due to life and all those other things that get in the way of seeing each other, we do not get to see them much. Maybe twice or three times a year. So, it was great to have them come out and see the new house and get to visit. We all watched the Mavs WIN, and enjoyed some great food and snackies as Scott would call them, and partook in some drinking of some wine and other assorted beverages. Good times!

Saturday morning, after I got up and moving I was doing Millie's medicine and noticed that her eye seemed to have blood in the discharge from the eye. SO! Off to the vet for the 3rd time. Better safe than sorry. I just knew I would be leaving her for them to take the eye. After an exam and history of what happened since my last Saturday visit to the original vet that saw her, the exam yielded this information. The white part of the eye is VERY bloodshot, not good and no one can tell us why this is happening. The ulcer has a lot of blood vessels going into the ulcer, this is GOOD, it means that it is trying to heal itself. But the one medicine that we were using she changed to drops and on Saturday she got the drops every hour. Then on Sunday she was to get the drops every two hours. Since that visit her eye has not been goopy with crap and it seems to have a lot more moisture in the eye.

Scott and I went fishing on Lake Texhoma yesterday. We had to leave our house by 4:15 am. Needless to say Millie and Sydney both spent the night with Gran-Gran and Pop-Pop. Great for them, they both were in their Heaven on Earth. The fishing was great, got home early afternoon and vegged out the rest of the day.

Saturday when Syd woke up that morning, Scott came in to tell me that Syd had a nose bleed in the middle of the night. He said she had dried blood all over her face and in her crib. He got her cleaned up. While we were sitting outside chatting with Scott's friends, Syd was playing and her nose started to bleed again. Want to know the hardest thing to do in the world. Try and hold a 16 month old to stop her nose from bleeding. I finally decided to squirt Afrin up her nose on the side it was bleeding. This was ONE of the many ways they tried to get my nose to stop bleeding during the nose bleed of the Century. It worked, seems that the Afrin shrinks the blood vessels. I was probably the wrong thing to do, but hell it worked and I know she will be addicted to Afrin for the remainder of her life, but at least her nose is not bleeding anymore. (knock wood) I tell you what, when her nose was dripping blood, I just knew "that's my child".

We have also conquered the drama of being scared of Millie with the cone on her head. The first day Millie came home as a member of the cone head family, Syd was fine. The next day, she was scared shitless. So we went from, her eye is hurt to, she is wearing a party hat, isn't Millie silly with her party hat on. So, wearing hats at our house right now has been part of taming the fear in Sydney. We are doing pretty good. Just a few moments of anxiety on Syd's part when Millie scrapes the cone on whatever is in her way. She is going to bulldoze her way through. Watch out Pug with a Cone on her head! S-C-R-A-P-E!!

Ooooh I can just hear the scraping noise. I think we should tie that auditor guy to a chair and make him listen to Millie scrape for hours on end! :)

I think you need to bill the auditor for a day at the spa after he leaves in two weeks. Since you had already planned to take time for recovery and he screwed that up by not showing up and therefore wasting your recovery time THEN choosing stress you out the next week, it's really the least he could do. (Man, is that all one sentence?!) Want a laugh... picture the auditor with a cone on HIS head.

Glad to hear that Millie is home and recovering...

Have you asked for your raise and ultra authority yet after your management experience?

Great idea there MM!!

Jen- I love that idea of comping the spa day!!

Dan-

Thanks, she is doing pretty good.
Not asked for a raise, it is part of the job and I am expected to take the reigns at anytime. I am just proud of the ability to carry it off and not let anyone know that I was scared as shit while I was the it girl!
