Cover Your A$$

The title of this post, is a saying that came about during the 60’s (I think) in the Vietnam war when soldiers would tell one another “Cover my a$$, I’m going in”. Obviously the person saying it was about to do something dangerous and wanted someone else to protect them.

Well Today, I have had to deal with different people working in another kind of government environment…actually I have been dealing with them for almost 2 months now. I should have remembered that old saying right from the start. From now on I will write down and/or email myself (easier to print out later when needed) every single time I call the office and keep track of who I talk to, along with the date & time. So when employees in this office want to claim that they never get the required paperwork, I  can have documented proof that they are full of crap. Do whatever it takes to avoid any future aggravation. So when $h!t hits the fan, you come out clean, no matter what. Now because government employees are clueless, I get to go in for another Face-to-Face interview with them next week. Hopefully my steam don’t boil over because right now I would like to rip their office apart.

If there was ever a day where people could make me wish I had some vodka…it would be today. Unfortunately I only have ginger ale and some cashews to snack on. Well I am ready to go read a book till I fall asleep.


Good Morning


Picture taken at 7:30am, after I decided to type this up. I have been up for a couple hours but I am still wearing my pj’s. Finally heard someone else moving around in the house about 7:40…must be my sister-in-law.

Anyway I have already had 2 cups of coffee, a blueberry bagel and a banana. I will probably go get a 3rd cup  of coffee soon and grab my blueberry Greek yogurt. Actually I should go jump in the shower soon. Yes today’s picture was taken before I washed my hair.

Today is Sunday. Nothing special planned for today. Probably just a quiet & boring day at home. Might be a good day to organize my paperwork for all my up-coming Dr. visits and the welfare office and the Social Security office.
