Well lets see, where do I begin? There's so much going on in my BRAIN that I'm not sure where to start at ~lol~ ............I guess I'll start by telling you all that I have been so FRUSTRATED with the company that I am working for as a CNA. The company has been bought out and now we have new owners that are really turning things upside down! Now we are learning that the new owners are more concerned about their money intake than the well being of the elderly! This has been very sad for us workers and of course for the residents as well. They have cut back on help which I understand the economy is really bad right now, but being low staffed has made it much harder on us CNA'S to perform our duties properly. The less help we have the harder it is to care for the elderly the way we should. I am talking about being able to assist to them in time when they need our help, but when you are tied up with one of the elderly and lights are going off down the hallways and we can't get to them right away until we are finished with what we are trying to do. So by the time we get to them they have already wet themselves or they have had some other disaster happen and had to wait longer then they should have to get the service that they needed sooner! Now I am learning that the new owners are taking away their briefs !#@%@#!.......WHAT ARE THEY THINKING????? Most of our residents wear pull up briefs and by doing this we are going to have our hands full. ((((YIKES)))) Like we already don't have our hands full now! So what I see is going to happen is when they have their accidents while they are laying in bed or even sitting in a chair we will have to deal with them lying or sitting in there own mess until we can get to them. First we are short staffed and now if they don't have a brief on this means it will be all over the place! This totally SUCKS...........And then we will have to get them all clean up and get new sheets and covers and clean clothes and so on! This could happen all day long, by the time we get one person cleaned up we will be running trying to get the next person cleaned up. When this all can be avoided if they keep letting them use BRIEFS!!!!!! Get the picture guys? Where do we have the time to get all of our duties done if we are having to deal with this kind of situation?????? This is just a little bit that I am sharing with you all, if I were to go into all of it you would be getting tired of reading this! I just wanted to share a little of what I am having to deal with at my company that I am still working for. BUT how much longer can I deal with this ?????? It's hard enough trying to take care of 9 to 12 residents on your own to accomplish what needs to be done on your shift and now they are going to wonder why certain things have not been done because of their STUPID ideas of making more money!!!!!! First of all ((( STATE-LAW ))) says each CNA is to only have (3) residents at a time! We are having anywhere to 9 or 12, now do you see what I am getting at! HOW are we going to handle doing everything if they really do take away the briefs? They already took the baby-wipes away which means we now use wash cloths which takes more of our time because after we are done cleaning the resident up we have to go to the hopper room and rinse the wash rags out before they go into the laundry containers. The laundry crew will not clean them if there is any stuff left on them. So this is taking more of our time away from the elderly! I really do feel SORRY for the residents, and I wish I could change things around, but this one is totally out of my hands except that I am having to work harder then I need to! And the elderly have to suffer like this. I love what I do for a living but I just don't see how there are people out there that can treat the elderly the way they are! Well I have shared enough for now, thank you for taking the time to come over and read my BLOG! May God be with you all....................Love,Stacy

As we approach closer to the day of the birth of Jesus, I would like to take this time to remind all of us the meaning of CHRISTMAS..........I know for some of us it has been a very tough year when it comes to MONEY! I found myself getting sad due to not being able to buy gifts like i used to in the pass. But then i needed to remind myself what Christmas was really all about..............So i have been doing more talking with people about this situation, And i have found that I'm not alone on this topic! It's so good to hear that other people are feeling the same way that i am. Yes-JESUS is the meaning of celebration for that very special day! We as human beings have gotten so carried away on how to celebrate it, we have spoiled ourselves with so many gifts and when all along it was to be celebrated for the birth of Jesus! He is who we should be thankful for, and i am hear to say to all of you that i am thankful for what i have and when that day comes Dec. 25th, i am going to be having a wonderful dinner with the ones that i love so very much...........And we will be thanking Jesus for all the impacts that he has had on each and everyone of us. (((( JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THIS SEASON )))) AMEN..............Love,Stacy

How is all my blog buddies doing? I'm so sorry that I have not posted as often as i would like to. There has been so many things going on with me lately that I have found myself caught up in all of my problems instead of trying to sit down and relax with all of you guys here on BLOGGER LAND!!!!!!Let me just say this, my hands are tied up with my son again. Lots & Lots of things going on with him that is still breaking my heart once again :( With that being said, I don't think I need to go into details cause it's really still about the same issues. Now I would like to wish all of you a very fulfilled and lots of laughter through the Holidays! HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESUS.........TTYAS-(talk to you all soon is what that means). HUGS & BLESSINGS TO ALL-Love,Stacy

First i would like to say how sorry i am that i have not had a lot of time to be on blog world............I am going to really try hard to do some catching up this week-end. Now the BIG QUESTION!!!! Can all of you please do a prayer for me???? I have a chance to become a certified CNA.............So i am asking all of you to pray that they will be giving me a phone call to come in for a interview, and if they like me they will finger print me and of course find that i am a good person.........Then they will put me through class starting this December 1st. WITH PAY-YIPPEE. Class goes for 6-weeks, then i will be on my own!!!!!!! I am so hoping for this job, some of you already know that i have done elderly care off and on for 8yrs. now................. Oh by the way, this job is going to put me in a place with the elderly. It's a living center for the elderly. So again, PLEASE-PLEASE PRAY REAL HARD FOR ME TO GET THIS OPPORTUNITY...............Now that i have managed to suck up and ask all of you to do this for me :) I feel so much better now. It's not easy to ask people to pray for me. I think you all can relate to what i am trying to say here. Anyhow, must be going now!!!!! Hope each and everyone of you are doing o.k? Talk to you all soon! BIG TIME (((( HUGS )))) SENT TO ALL OF YOU>>>>>>>

I was going to post something about my latest issues at my new job, But have decided to COPY somebody's blog.........So i will start by saying that this topic is going to be about our bloggers!!!!!! 1) Tart has posted a wonderful post about how she feels about her blog buddies :)......I really think it's great that she has pointed out on how she feels about some of us. So i would like to take this time to tell Tart how i feel about her. First she is such a sweet heart, and i myself love blogging with her and i too look forward for her comment's because she knows how to make me LOL and she always puts a smile on my face :) GIGGLES MY FRIEND!!!!! And Tart needs to know that she as well is in my thoughts and prayers too. Thanks Tart for being such a sweet kind hearted person that you are, and letting us all know how you feel about all of us crazy bloggers-Hee,Hee, i mean that in a good way! 2) I too agree with Tart about Mike! He has been there for all of us and when there is trouble going with a blogger friend he is the first one to make a prayer request....... Mike is full of care and love for all of us. For somebody that has seizures all the time has taken the time to post up a prayer request for people when i feel that all of us need to be praying harder for him.......He for sure has shown his kindness & caring to all of us :) Thanks Mike for being such a great blogger friend!!!!! 3) Tracy my wonderful twin of mind, well you all know how i feel about my sis! I can only say that as we have grown older, we have become very close to one another. And we both have gotten closer by being on blogger land. So i need to let you all know if it wasn't for my twin setting me up on blogger land, i would have never met any of you. How sad that would of been, because i really love talking to all of you. And each and everyone of you make a impact in my life......CHEERS........Big smile i have on my face right now just thinking about all of you! This is really cool to know that we all really do care about one another, WOW-what a feeling this is, thanks guys for being my friend on blogger land. Now i could keep writing about each and everyone that i love to blog with but i am afraid that all of you would get tired reading if this had to take a hour to read this post, so for those that i have not mentioned please do not take it to heart that i don't care about you. (((((CAUSE I REALLY DO LOVE BLOGGING WITH ALL OF YOU))))) Of course that would be-TAMARA,MARY,WANDA,CLUELESS, and i really could go on and on but i think you all get the idea.......Thanks to all of you for being my blogger friend. Hugs & Blessings Sent To All Of You>>>>>>>>>>>

Well here i am being able to relax and also able to let all of you know to what is going on with my new job! First i would like to say that YES i am very tired, the reason for this is due to having to do a lot of labor work......OMG.......I have to mop, stock the soda & beer walk-in, clean the bathroom and do windows plus wait on customers at the front counter. This is done daily, there is a lot more duties involved, but i am just giving you guys an idea to what is to be done by me daily when i am there....... Now i have just learned that i will be starting work at 6:00 am in the morning starting next Monday. I was only working 10:00 am to 2:00 pm daily. Now I will be opening the store at 6:00 am to 2:30 pm daily......OMG........Here i go again, thinking that 4 hrs. a day was killing me, now i will be doing 8 hrs. a day!!!!!! Don't get me wrong, i have done this kind of work all my life. But it has been a year since i have had to be this physical, so that is why i am BITCHING so much........GIGGLES.........Anyway, this means that my sister will be training me more on the computer register's so that i will be ready to be on my own this coming Monday. I was also told that once i am the main person up front that would mean that i would not be having to do so much labor work. YIPPEE, THANK GOD, Cause my poor hips and lower back are killing me!!! I just hope i will get the computers down o.k? I am just thankful that my boss is having my sister do the training with me :) I requested it cause she knows how i am and because of my hearing loss she will be able to help me focus on those people that are trying to get gas. The first day being up front my sister ask me if i could hear that? Of course i said hear what? She said the beeping sounds, i said OMG that is the sounds for the gas pumps huh????? I started to panic and said to her maybe i shouldn't be working up front cause of my hearing loss!!!! Then, because my sister knows me so well, she proceeds to calm me down and said that we will do what you are best at...Confused again, but she said because of your hearing loss what do you do best with it because of the problem? She pointed to her eyes, I said my eyes, of course that"s how i have gotten through life is to use my eyes more......That is how i understand to what people are saying to me. I guess you can say kinda like sign language but more like body language. So she told me to calm down and you will be o.k, you will be watching more then trying to hear the beep sounds. My sister has so much faith in me and i think that is why i have not walked off of this job yet. I have worked at a super market for years. I have done the same kind of work but i have never dealt with gas pumps or Lottery!!! This is very confusing to me, but my lovely sister tells me that i have been doing really good and that everybody is very please with me working there. Of course i said to her that you aren't just saying that because i am your sister are you? Hee,Hee......She said NO, and told me that i am picking things up really fast compared to some of the others that are still having problems with everything that have been at this job longer then me. That made me feel really good to hear that. And to top it off i am hearing that from my other co-workers as well :) CHEERS......So everybody, i will have to fill you in more when i start working more up front starting next Monday! Wish me luck and i hope that i don't mess up to much......GIGGLES......Hugs and Blessings to all of you!

Just stopping in to let all of you know that i start a new job tomorrow. I am going to be pretty busy now so i may have a harder time being able to keep up with all of my blog buddies. But i sure am going to give it my best shot at it...........Right now i only will be working 4 hours a day so that should not be a problem at first. Once i get my complete training done then it will be full time work. Which i may have very screwy hours then, i will be working at a gas station with my oldest sister that has been there for 20 some years now........Boy do i give her credit, cause the owner can be a real pain in the butt sometimes........I have always said that i would not work for that man nor would he ever hire me due to my sister already working for him. He always said that he did not like family working together. But for some reason he has over looked that and i myself has decided to over look my issues about him too........So he is really in need of help right now and i really need to get out and make more money to keep up with this darn world of ours. I don't know who is crazier, the man that owns the business or me. We are going to find out very soon.....((GIGGLES))......We both are very much bull headed, so i told him that i already prayed to GOD about this situation. And you know something, i got a nice smile out of him and we both laugh about it. Cause he knows exactly what i was talking about :) I am looking forward to working with my sister though, and he has me being trained by her which is going to be lots of fun..........Like my sister said, i will be train right, that's for sure since she has been there for so long now. Which surprised me that he is having us work together.......HUMMMMM........Maybe God is really working on both of us!!!! Well guys wish me luck and i will keep you all posted to what is happening....... HUGS & HUGS TO ALL OF YOU, BLESSINGS AS WELL-CHEERS :)

First i would like to tell all of you that my son has been doing pretty good. FOR THE MOST PART....... But as of yesterday, my son has chosen to leave school campus and then decided to hitch a ride all the way up to my house!!!! Well lets say where i live, cause i did not know where he was until i got a phone call from my brother in-law saying that someone had seen my son on the highway coming up towards us......... OMG, that little poop head! Now of course i needed to get a hold of his dad to let him know that he could be up here in my area. Here we go again i thought! A wild goose hunt and probably would have the cops involved. I instantly started to get this over whelming feeling. So i decided to get in my car and drive over to where i thought he could be hiding out.........The first place that i came to i had knocked on their door while my heart was pounding so fast, they answered and before i could say anything they said are you looking for your son? YES, they told me that they were the ones to give him a ride from our little town to there place. He is around here somewhere they say. Now i call my son on his cell phone to tell him that i know where he is. Of course he tells me that he is not here......FIRST I SAID WHY WOULD YOU SAY YOU ARE NOT HERE. IF YOU WEREN'T HERE YOU WOULD BE SAYING MOM,((( I AM NOT UP THERE,))) BUT YOU SAID I AM NOT HERE..... I told him to stop lying and that the game is over. You have been caught!!!! So this went on for about an hour, finally the game comes to a stop. Now i see my son walking in a field, all sweaty and tired looking. He proceeds to get in my car looking like he has been crying. He then ask to call his dad to tell him that he is with me now.........Now we go back to my house until i was able to meet his step mother half way back to his home. Of course during all of this my son was telling me that i did not care about him anymore, and if i did care about him i would be begging his dad to let him move back in with me....... But i am this EVIL MOM he says!!!! Trying to keep myself from slapping him about 20 times that should of taken place but i just take in all the abuse from him and just tell him that someday you will understand and that i love you more than you know..........You can say all the ugly things you want to me, keep on stabbing my heart. But i know that you really don't mean the things that you are saying to me. Now its time for him to get into his step moms car. We now HUG each other, he looks in my eye with a tear saying he probably wont be able to see me for a couple of months now. I say that it wont be that long, you had a bad day and that your dad has been pretty fair with you. Just try to do better from here on. But you need some kind of consequence to be done. You will never learn if something dosen't happen. From my understanding, his dad has taken his cell phone away for right now. As far as for him to come up to my house, i do know that he has to do Saturday school this week-end because of what he did. ( SCHOOL DECECION) I will see if he will get to come up the following week-end. ITS ALL UP TO MY SON'S ACTIONS!!!! I will be praying hard for him :) Thanks to all my readers for taking the time to read my post's......Hugs & Blessings To All, Love-Stacy :)

THEY ARE MORE BEAUTIFUL IN PERSON.....My husband and I were very much in awhhhhh.. I cant wait to hang them up, but i have to wait for my wonderful husband to make the frames for them.....This week-end he will be doing that :) Let me share with all of you which ones i ordered. Then you can go over to Tracy's web site to see which ones i am talking about.....I have ordered (( Heavens Gateway )),(( Summer Nights ))&(( Ray Of Hope ))....... WOW and they are great paintings!!!! Really Cool Guys...... I will be ordering some more of her paintings as soon as i have more money. I can only do a little at a time, if i had it my way i would be getting them now. But i would be broke and plus probably upset my husband. Hee,Hee,Hee..... He is the main provider in this house hold so i better be good :) LOL.... So guys, PLEASE go over to Tracy's Art Gallery and enjoy what you see. I hope that each and everyone of you will have a great week-end........ Hugs & Blessings To All :)........
