Work today was the suck. First I got called in to talk to my supervisor because the receptionist complained about me to the head of the admin team that I'm supposed to be second on the phones and the new girl seems to be answering the phone a lot.  First off, it's just not true, I feel like all I do is answer the phone and take messages on some days.  Second, if she weren't traipsing off to Starbucks and the corner store and the mailbox 50 times a day or just standing in the hallway being chatty, who is answering the phone instead of her wouldn't be an issue.  Thirdly, I spent the better part of the past two weeks sick, congested and coughing like a crazy person, if the phone rang and she didn't answer and I didn't answer it, it's because I was blowing my nose or coughing.

Then after that discussion, I got called upstairs to talk to the head of the admin team and she tells me to sit in the CEO's office and wait for the HR person.  Today was my 90-day mark and I know I'm supposed to get a review-- with this call upstairs, I thought I was getting fired.  I wasn't.  There was a problem with my health insurance.  Instead of kicking in today, it will be effective on the 15th, so I had to postpone my big OB appointment until the 15th.

Steve is working until midnight so I had to pick up Andy from daycare and didn't get there until almost 6 with my crazy commute.  Poor little guy!  I got home, made dinner, changed Andy, ate, jammied Andy up and soon I will put him to bed and be able to relax.  I'm going to ignore the 5 baskets of clean laundry that need to be folded and put away and all the other things cluttering up my house.  I am going to watch Everwood and go to bed.

Man, when I was working I was supposed to be listening for phones too. I was last in line, but the three between the first and me were always doing those other things. One was always on the phone with her husband. Frustrated the hell out of me.

It's annoying. And because I didn't want to be the complainer, I've never said anything to anyone about it.
