A little rough'n'tumble

First things first, I lost my job. They learned about my immunocompromised state, said I was too much of a liability and took my job away. At least I got a paycheck to hold me over until I get another job. Not to mention I've applied for Vocational Rehabilitation and they can teach me how to do something like, oh I don't know, medical transcripts. Something in the back of my head screams injustice but I believe everything happens for a reason and so I'm doing alright.

Secondly, mom got her port put in today so they have easy access to give her the chemo. She's resting right now, sleeping through Rear Window. No, I wouldn't be able to sleep through that movie.

On brighter news, I have finished one pomatomus sock so that she has at least one warm tootsie while she goes through her Chemo.

And the right front panel of the Nantucket Jacket is nearly finished.

Finally, I challenge someone to tag me for a meme because, uh, I want to be. So if you take a meme and need someone to tag, I'm your woman.


  1. Tag your it. check out this post and follow the instructions.
    Have fun and let me know I will check back to see what is on your nightstand

  2. I'm sorry, Kirstin. Can they do that? What about the other rest homes you worked at? Good luck! (Thanks for taking such good care of Mom.)

  3. Oh I'm so sorry. I'm sure something will work out for you. And if you feel you were discriminated against, contact the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, they can maybe give you some guidance. There are many laws against firing someone due to an illness, however it may depend on what field of work you live on whether or not they can fire you or not.
