I explained as much to this supervisor and suggested he do some digging about it. Then I got to thinking about this and realized that he could only have heard about my oversight from another employee who is not my biggest fan. So, I'm a little peeved. I corrected one very minor error, and then have been accused of one LARGER error that could impact my credibility. I'm unhappy and I can't even confront this particular coworker as he is on days off for two more days. Grrrr. In the grand scheme of things this isn't a big issue, but it is irritating.
And what is worse, by the time he gets back to work, you will be over your mad. Grrrr!

Have you gotten this checked out yet? It could be a sign of something serious. A friend of mine had an eye that kept twitching for an extended amount of time and found out he'd had a small stroke. Not the only thing that can cause persistant muscle twitches but it's worth getting checked out, if for no other reason than to see if the twitching can be relieved.

5 adults. 3 kids (2 toddlers and a preteen). All sick with a stomach/intestinal virus. Those of us who have had it for a week and ran a fever with it are finally starting to feel better. Those who initially had it at the beginning of the week for only 24 hrs are getting it again and running a fever with it this time. Hopefully it will be gone soon. We're all tired of smelling the nastier parts of this illness and doing mass loads of laundry. And someone is going to have to go get more toilet paper soon. Been a rough week.

Sounds bad, Jess. Anyone feel good enough for a TP run? Some local stores are willing to deliver when a household is down. Even the the cab company will do a run if needed.

Rol has been symptom free for over 24 hours so he's going to work this afternoon and will pick some up on his way home. We have enough until then.

We have lots of rice, bread, jello, broth, applesauce, soda crackers and oatmeal. We need more bananas, some pedialyte for the two toddlers and some more vitamin waters for the adults. And everyone is sipping water and gingerale. We also have lots of herbal peppermint, chamomile, and spearmint chamomile tea that we've all been sipping.

Hardest part is keeping the two boys entertained. They're so little they don't really understand that they need to rest and take it easy or that Aunt Jessie can't be lifting them over her head and spinning them around. They want to wrestle and play like they normally do and it's just not possible.

Yeah, keeping kids busy when you are sick is not fun.

So what's with the spinach? My son has been hunting for more than a week for me trying to find fresh spinach. At first I wanted baby spinach. Now I will take any kind. He has hit five different very large supermarkets and they are out of it. One store advertised it for sale this week. He went the day the sale started. No spinach. When he asked, all he could get for an answer was "no spinach." I WANT MY SPINACH!!! Do I have to throw a hissy fit and stomp my feet in the middle of the produce aisle? Or maybe that old feminine wile, tears. Kale, escarole, etc. just will not do. It has to be spinach. I just want to saute' it in lots of butter and then pig out.
