Bad Blogger/Witty Wednesday

No not me. The site. It's. driving. me. nuts. And I really mean it this time!

I am trying to post the story I promised about our wedding and I really wanted to put up pictures with it but blogger won't let me or the computer or whatever and it is making mad!
Okay I'm a little high strung today. Don' t know why just getting nervous like I said yesterday.
What is making it worse this week is I am at my most hated clinic. I feel anxiety about being there from the time I see it on my schedule. It has kept up it reputation for me its the only one I hate going to because of the people. They are so clickish and I hate that. Its like being in middle school and I am the new student even though I have had this job longer then many of them somehow I don't belong. ugg it gets to me. What I hate is its another one on the complete opposite end of town so it takes forever to get there. I have told my boss that I don't like working there and that not long ago last fall I worked there and had a panic attack while working there and the rest of the time I was so stressed out from anxiety that I was ready to lose it and cried on my way to and from work every day. I've told her what happens there and her comment. Basically tough thats your job and you go wherever we tell you. Nice huh? And people wonder why I hate my job......
Thank you for you comments again from my post yesterday. Honestly I'm going to hold everyone up to what they said because I am sure I'm going to need the encouragment to get through Kelly being gone and still working in the meantime. But like I told Kelly today. Everytime something happened at work that upset me I said it loud enough people could hear "only 4 months" then I just left it at that with no explanation. Honestly it felt good and made me smile....hehe.
Okay and since its Wednesday I will brighten up this post with a joke for Witty Wednesday

An Oregon senior citizen drove his brand new Corvette convertible out of the dealership recently. Taking off down the road, he floored it to 80 mph, enjoying the wind blowing through what little hair he had left."Amazing," he thought as he flew down I-5, pushing the pedal even more.
Looking in his rear view mirror, he saw a state trooper behind him, blue lights flashing and siren blaring. He floored it to 100 mph, then 110,then 120.
Suddenly he thought, "What am I doing? I'm too old for this," and pulled over to await the trooper's arrival.
Pulling in behind him, the trooper walked up to the Corvette, looked at his watch and said, "Sir, my shift ends in 30 minutes. Today is Friday"."If you can give me a reason for speeding that I've never heard before, I'll let you go."
The old gentleman paused. Then said, "Years ago, my wife ran off with an Oregon State Trooper. I thought you were bringing her back."
"Have a good day, sir," replied the trooper.

8 people had something to say:

Hi Terri,
I can sense the anxiety of having to work in the clinic.

Therefore I hope my reply will help - bring a smile to your face!!

just remember the older one gets - the wiser one becomes, unless they are the 'Obnoxious' individuals you work with - in which case - smile at their misfortune in life - you are blessed with a wonderful husband and a beautiful family.

They on the otherhand have only their "self-opinionated status" in life.

Am I sounding cruel yet? One sadly does have the misfortune to come across such individuals in our working life - and I just give them my "cold stare" as well as switch off my hearing aids!!

Think of fun things you will be doing soon in Alaska - its countdown time = remember!! so just have a smile on your face and dream!!

As Monty Python said "Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life".

Works for me - every time!!

Thanks for the joke!

Sorry about the clinic, but as you said, the end is near!

Can't wait to see the pictures and the story about the wedding when you can get blogger to cooperate...

Sorry, forgot to say I had missed the joke - dementia on my part or the failure to see an optician!!

Wonder if I can get away with it!!! Would have to be a virtual wife - though!

Luv the joke.

Still eager to find out how long it will take Kelly to drive from Oregan to Alaska and how many miles it is!!

Peter, its about a 3 day trip and teh distance is about 2,560.61 miles umm I'm not sure how to convert that though to kilometers you can see the map of how he will drive it you can copy and past this link

I don't know how to put links in the comments box yet.

Thank your for your suggestions by the way. I agree they are self opinionated and I say a little closed minded?

amy, I'm anxious to post it if only blogger wouldn't be a pain. Hopefully I will have better luck tonight.

Guess my pipe smoking - might be a give away!!

Hi Terri
I like your strategy... "only four months to go"! LOL.... keep it up girl!...
I was just looking at the map for your journey...if you decide to come through this way, it is about 8 hours from your door to mine... and when you cross the border you would go onto hwy 97... which passes our place - probably less than 1,000 ft. from our back door..... you'll have to stop in...bring your swimsuit... by that time the pool will be in full swing!! And the sun will be scorching hot! yeees! can hardly wait for that!
