I will only say this: Unknown who the quote is from"

"We trained hard . . . but it seemed that every time we were beginning to form up into teams we would be reorganized. I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganizing: and a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress while producing confusion, inefficiency, and demoralization." 

And This:


That is exactly how I feel about the place I work right now.

In Charlotte, NC
That's Me!
thlchiara
So, here I am, in Charlotte, NC. I am in a MUCH better hotel than the last one (no strip clubs to have shootings at this time), and the bed is comfortable somewhat. I hate not sleeping with my husband, so I tried using the extra pillows on the bed to act as a fake hubby (don't go getting a dirty mind, I am not that desperate). Nope, woke up at 2 am dreaming of Presidential Candidates (I fell asleep with the TV on), and fake hubby was decimated. I must have beat the shit out of it while sleeping (if I do that to you Mike, I am SOOO sorry!).

The A-Check paperwork is tremendous! I have no clue as to how the "Lead" thinks that me and the other girl are going to be able to do all of this paperwork for just one airplane, and then run back and forth from the hangar to the line (which takes about 10 minutes each way) to pick up the workpacks for the overnight planes. So, I put a bug in someone's ear today and I am pretty sure that I will be getting to talk to the Director about it soon. The JCC's here in Charlotte at least have 2 people at night and one person during the day. At IAD, there is onle me, and one other girl, and we have to do it all. Umm, I think things need to change and soon.

Other than that, I miss Mike and the girls alot, I hate being by myself away from home. But the good news is that I get to go to Ymir, since I am only 123 miles southwest of it. I will be staying in another hotel (not freezing my butt off for anyone), and will be taking pictures of Theron's Knighting for Mike. I will have good company, and I look forward to just getting a chance to relax for a little bit.

Thinking about turning in early tonight, but knowing me, I will be up till 1am.

Have a good night all!

Sick Baby
That's Me!
thlchiara
I am feeling better, although I sound like Marge Simpson on steroids at this point (way too much coughing with nothing coming out). But Erin has a fever of 103.5 (that was before I left for work tonight). She didn't go to school yesterday, and I had her sleep with me when I got home. The poor baby couldn't get comfortable, so I kept getting woken up. I am a very tire mom, who has to drive home in a potential ice storm in the morning. I plan on taking I-66 instead of Rte 7 or 50 because the hills on 66 are smaller. Don't need to be tired and spin out.

I go to Charlotte Wed-Fri of next week to get spooled up on paperwork used for A-Check maintenance. I also get a chance to spill my thoughts out onto the Director of QC, as I have had so many issues with the lack of leadership and just general dumbass comments from the "Lead" here at IAD. I work with Mike's friend Kevin, and Kevin and I are both sick due to the kids. I didn't go into work Thursday night because I was so sick. Kevin also called in sick, and the "Lead" said: "So what, ya sleepin with Kelly?" Now I normally just let stuff roll off my back, but this jackass crossed the line. He likes to go aroud telling all of our coworkers that I am mean. Well, let's see just how mean I get on this.

Not much else going on here, just working. I am going to get Erin an appointment with the doc tomorrow, hopefully not pneumonia again. That is my big worry right now.

Which Goddess Owns You?




The Goddess Chaos: Wild, uncontrolled, unpredictable, crazed, represented by the color red and the element fire. Her only constant is that she's never constant. Prone to losing her considerable temple, but her attention span is so short that she rarely actually remembers to punish anyone. A complete hedonist.

Did anyone see the Mac truck that just hit me??
That's Me!
thlchiara
Wow, I have been steam-rolled, plowed over, and just generally beaten all to Hell. I think I may be over the fever, but OMG I feel like I have been chewed up and spit back out. Very drained, I get dizzy standing up longer than 30 seconds. I have been using different things to help, but nope, doesn't work well. It has been like this since Monday, and I feel a little better, but no where near what I should be. Or where I would like to be.

Turgeis and the kids came over today, Mike to the kids to the Winter Carnival at school, and they came home with 3 cakes. Machaela won 1 and Erin won the other 2. So it looks as though we just might be having cake for dinner tonight.

I need to get flight info for a few people whom I said I would get it for, but I have been so darned sick that I still cannot concentrate on one thing (can ya tell?). Hopefully I will feel good enough in a day or so to just suck it up and get the stuff done.

Going back to bed now

Done

Taxes are finished. Not so bad this year at all, which was really nice. The weird part, and I know I should have known better than to do this because I was a Tax Preparer, was that the IRS initially rejected my form. Why you ask? Because I did not round the dollar amounts. I actually wanted to see if it would take it. Nope, sure enough, the website I did my taxes on (TaxAct Online for those who want to know, I only use them) sent me the rejection notice with the reason that the IRS does not take pennies. So, I would think that companies would round the dollar amounts to help keep the taxpayer from having to deal with this. Nope, that would be too logical.

So I fixed the amounts (in less than 3 minutes) and resubmitted them this morning. Got the notification this afternoon that the IRS has accepted them, so I am hoping that I get the refunds soon. There are a lot of things that have to be done with the taxes and I have to get it straightened out fast so I know where the money is going to go and if I will have any left.

Other than that, not much going on, just feeling blah right now. Feel like I am trying to come down with something, but not at the same time. Did that make sense?

I go back to work tomorrow night, and I hope that whatever I am feeling goes away by then.

Your Score: Blaze


~ 51% Water ~ 62% Wind ~ 59% Earth ~ 81% Fire ~



I've got a ruby red desire

I've got to hear the red bird sing...

Let's see... your personality reminds me of the...

...fiery Ruby, the red variety of corundum, or its little sister, the Garnet that inspires love, passion and sensuality. Your colour is the luscious red or glaring pink.

Interpretation:

Out of the seven chakras, the Ground Chakra, which is associated with the element of fire and represents our basic desires and driving force, seems to be predominant in you. Though you will certainly be fun to be around, this may result in a tendency to make decisions impulsively or feel restless and agitated.

You can balance it by wearing an Aquamarine or a Turquoise; they both inspire balance, peace and serenity.

A Tarot references concerning your predominant element:

If you are a young lass or lad and still unmarried your card is the Page of Wands. Young women, especially married ones, identify with the Queen of Wands, also known as the Queen of Clubs. If you are a young, unmarried man, you are the Knight of Wands, and married or “mature” males are identified with the King of Wands, commonly known as the King of Clubs. Ladies and gentlemen, here is your strong-willed man you’ve been looking for.

These are the results you will get if you score highly on...

None of the four elements: Balance Wind: Gust Fire: Blaze Water: River Earth: Valley Wind & Fire: Thunder Wind & Water: Clouds Wind & Earth: Canyon Fire & Earth: Lava Fire & Water: Tornado Water & Earth: Trees Wind, Fire & Earth: Storm Wind, Fire & Water: Stars Wind, Water & Earth: Forest Fire, Water & Earth: Avalanche All four elements: Harmony

Holy Crap!

Winchester, VA is supposed to get anywhere from 4-8 inches of snow tomorrow. Wonder if the girls or Mike will have school???

I am so tired. It is my "Friday" here at work, and I have someone that can cover everything. I may just decide to leave early and not have overtime this week. I don't want to drive in snow, and I really am very tired.

Oh well, I will figure it out eventually.

Cool

I am at work right now. I brought my laptop in and the B Terminal actually has free WiFi (The other terminals have sprint, AT&T, and Verizon, which you have to pay for). Sweet! I can actually check my LJ, play my Napster, and play the games I have on my computer with no issues! SO happy now.

Not much is going on, disappointed that I won't be able to go to Ymir because of work. Can't go to University either because of work, and for Gulf Wars, I can only go Thur-Sun (because of work again). Very upsetting, because I have obligations at GW, and I won't be able to fulfill them until I get there Thurs morning. I will fly into New Orleans around 10am, and hopefully get a couple of hours of sleep before I hit the ground running.

Okay, looks like work is beckoning, so talk to all soon!

Update

Today is our wedding anniversary. I have to work and Mike goes to school.
