You won't believe!!

I got turned down for 3 jobs this week. 2 at Lakeland Regional Medical Center, the fancy name for our hospital, for patient access representative and 1 at Watson Clinic for security guard/hospitality hostess. I'm pretty sure I could check someone into the hospital or push them around in a wheelchair or drive the tram out in the parking lot at the clinic.. Guess these HR people don't know me very well!

I have to have 2 teeth pulled on Monday, it was supposed to be this last Wednesday but my BP was too high. I wonder why??? Maybe cause I was having 2 teeth pulled??? I also forgot to take my BP meds that morning. The dentist told me to go home, take my meds and be back at 3pm. When I went to start my car it was dead, nothing, zip, nada. Had to call Meagan at work, she picked me up and I took her back to work. Came home, took meds, went back at 3pm and BP was still the same! Come back Monday, she said and we will try again. Since my car was dead, had to have it towed to the shop. Thought it was the alternator gone bad again but was only the battery cable broken in two. So it only cost me $30 instead of the $200 I thought it might be.

Yesterday I was online taking a test for Publix when a Verizon tech put my phone out while working on the neighbor's phone which was out. Lost my internet connection and fouled up my test. He left my phone out when he left, I only had express dial tone and no one could call me either for over 24 hours. Had to call repair from the edt and they told it would fixed by 8pm tonight. It was back in service by 230pm today. I called Publix this afternoon after I had a dial tone and she said they had sent me an email telling me I would be able to finish taking the test. Wish me luck and pray for me. The rest of the test is on Microsoft Word, Access, Excel and Data entry. I will do that Saturday morning. Even if I pass doesn't mean I will get a job but I did make it far enough to take the test. I thought that was pretty good.

How was your week??

What a week you had! I am glad the car repair was not expensive. That was crazy with the phone going out. Sheesh!

I hope next week is better for you. Good luck with the job search!

Goodness Becky! Your week was a rough one! I'm sending ++++ get that job vibes your way. Glad to hear your car repair was a lot less than what you envisioned.

What a week! I think you have earned a strong drink! :)

Becky - I am so, so, so sorry that life has been kicking you in the butt. I wish that I had a magic wand that I could wave, and make everything better.

Sending my love!

Sorry about the tooth and HPB and the car and the phone and the test and the turndowns for the jobs. Yikes this makes me want to cry for you. How frustrating. Praying for better days...boring can be just lovely.

Thanks for your visit! Yeah, Helmi pops up now and then in my posts. I am glad you enjoyed seeing her again.

The vegetables - I've found that they usually sit there on the counter until they rot. LOL

I did make a big pot of Stuffed Bell Pepper Soup a couple of weeks ago. A friend from church gave me a big bag of them - picked fresh from her garden. That used up a lot of the bell peppers and some onions.

We used the tomato in a salad, I think. The banana peppers are getting all shriveled up, but they need to rot a little more, before I can toss them Ha-ha.

Welcome, I'm Robynn! said...

Becky - I am so sorry all this is happening - or NOT happening, as the case may be - but you still made me laugh through all that. I kept thinking of the old Hee Haw routine where they sang the, "If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all," song.

Sure hope all turns around for you very soon and you were able to get those teeth out. I haven't NOT regretted having the one pulled that drove me nuts - and to the poor house with root canals.

I'm praying blessings for you.

Hi Becky
How did your new post slip past me? Well I found it now- by hook or by crook!
Well now. Are your teeth in or out?
I hope you BP is much better- but I bet your right why it was high!
That's too much crapperoo happening!
And did you finish your test? Is the car still better?
And I hope you find the job of your dreams. I am keeping my paws crossed for you sweet Becky.
I will wish on a star that life gets better for you!

I took a look at that clock. Cool Clock! I was happy to see a comment from you since you hadn't posted here in a while. I am like Libby with her vegetables in her comment. LOL! I don't know why I buy them sometimes, they don't get eaten on time and then by the time I think about it, they have gone bad. Oh well....

Becky, thanks for stopping by my blog. I hope things are much better for you now.
