Cell phone works, and a new job?

Published by at 12:48 am under Pets,Work

Got the cell phone to work this morning. Called Sprint back and discovered that the phone was not properly programmed yesterday, so went through that with the nice lady on the phone and 10 minutes later I have a working cell phone again. YAY!

Today I submitted my resume and job interest form for a supervisor position here at my company. Currently, I am on a “special project” working with the training department, but technically I am still a phone rep. Which means at any time I could be sent back to take phone calls, something I am not looking forward to at all. When I got to work today and saw the posting for a supervisor position I jumped on it. Hoo-rah! I like training and everything, but A) This position is in no way, shape, or form permanent and B) I think I’m ready for something new. I’ve been doing training off and on for two years. I like creating documentation and working with the online tools, but I am getting tired of being in the classroom. I enjoy it and all, but it gets tedious. Would I take a permanent training position if it was offered? YES. . . there is still more good than bad about the job. Would I turn up my nose at the chance to be a supervisor? NO. . . since I started at this company I thought that it would be kind of fun to be a supervisor, I hope I get the chance to see if I was right or not.

Was out sick yesterday with a sore throat. . . I am really tired of sore throats. But no doctor will take my tonsils out, regardless of the fact that they have been inflammed for 12 years straight. I am not exaggerating. There has not been a day for the past 12 years that I have been able to look at my tonsils and see anything resembling normal. When I go to the doctor’s (which I do very rarely) they just say “Well, if we take out the tonsils, something else will get infected” GREAT LOGIC. I’m glad that’s not the standard line for everything. . . “Well, if fill this cavity, you’ll just get another one.” Eek!

I really don’t like doctors anyway. That’s a combination of my grandmother’s influence (she’s Christian Scientist), and the fact that the doctor I had when I was a child was a quack. Seriously quacked. I don’t go to doctors if I can self-medicate. But for some things (like surgery and prescription drugs) they are necessary.

I am so ready for the weekend. I have a list of stuff that I want to do, but I bet that none, or very little of it, will get done. I am prone to being a lazy ass on the weekends.

I think I am going to switch the cats over to a new food. I have been reading some disturbing things about IAMS lately, possibly causing urinary blockage. My cats are not prone to UTI’s, but I don’t mind being on the safe side. Plus, I don’t exactly love the ingredient list in IAMS cat food. Gotta dig up the name of that one food that I want to get them on. . . think it’s Nature’s Recipie.

That’s all for now.
