I'm off to see the wizard....

Well, maybe not the wizard, per se, but the doctor is going to do her magic on my other hand tomorrow and I will have a matching set of scars to be proud of. I can't believe I am actually looking forward to this... It's sad when one anticipates surgery just to get out of the office!! LOL! I can't say I will be missing it AT ALL! I am pretty sure Modesto has cornered the market on stupid people! I have discovered that the ones that keep calling back really don't think I recognize their voice. I have taken to telling them, when they call back for the third time to whine that their bus still hasn't arrived, "I told you when you called the first TWO times that the bus will be there at X time--it isn't even supposed to be there yet!" "Oh". And they hang up. Someone today was prank calling--calling then waiting until I said hi and then they would hang up. After five or six times I told them, before they could hang up, "We have caller ID, you need to quit calling"!! Didn't hear back from them the rest of the day--and no, we DON'T have Caller ID!! LOL! Idiots...

I have been busy getting all the lefts and rights done for the new routes--the computer ate the first set I did so I had to re-do it all--that sucked! The last two days I was doing really important work--putting tabs with the route #'s on them on the desk copy of the ride guide and taking the old magnetic name tags for the bus board apart and putting new names on them. I did the same thing with the bus #'s---everyone say "oooooo" now!!! Think I am a little over-qualified for the job!

Finally got all my DMV crap straightened out--talk about a nightmare! If you want to read about that, you will have to go to my blog at http://360.yahoo.com/menageriemom62. Talk at you all later after the hand is mended...

Hope your hand is healing well!
I saw your comments over on my blog and thought...ANOTHER SISTER!! I've found a few out there (usually Cherries, go figure!), and it's always nice to add another to the group!
My oldest, Gret, is awesome. Well, they all are, of course, but since she's the oldest, she's the one I concentrate on most of the time. The boyfriend thing is really just too cute. I mean, it's not like they actually go anywhere, so I'm not really sure what "going out" means. I guess it just means "going steady". Really though, this boy is great, and he's exactly the one I would pick for her if I were the one doing the picking. All of her friends have had a "boyfriend" already, many of them without the knowledge of their parents. I think it's cool that she's willing to talk to me about it at all. Plus, she has some pretty high standards, and she won't take crap from anybody. We'll just have to see how it goes. I'll keep you posted!
Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving comments. It's so lonely out in blogger land sometimes, thinking nobody reads what you put your heart and soul into. Sometimes I think "Geez, if nobody ever reads my blog, how in the world can I expect to get a book out there?" But alas, I keep writing, because it's just like breathing. So thanks for reading. You don't know how much it means to me!
