Last night was party time...

It was my sons birthday and so me and the Dog trotted off to go spend time.  They live in Cranbourne; well they kind of do.  He is a FIFO (fly in/fly out) working in the mines so he is away about twenty one days a month.   She is a nurse and she's going to work for my old hospital.

I went up earlier and had lunch with the "Hunchback".   I find it amazing that we can be friends; but he is my best friend and I'd rather have him in my life than not.  I guess with brain damage, comes clarity.

I got there in the afternoon and let Sharpie run amok with Narla, their dog.  Sharpie is about one month older than Narla, but she is leaving him behind in height.   She's a kelpie, so she's energetic.  Sharpie has been asleep all day today and he's no slouch when it comes to exercise!

So we drank and ordered pizza for dinner.  I think there was about 20 of us, really nice bunch of people.  He's landed on his feet.  I love his gal.  Love her kids.  I just wish that they would save for a house.  I don't want him to make the same mistake that I did because he probably won't have the brain crap to get him the deposit!

Today, I have done nothing other than drive home, but I'm exhausted.  So I'm in bed typing this.   Al has gone to the shop because I can't cook dinner.  So it's grilled cheese for tea!

It's about 7.45 am.  On my phone, I set a reminder about an interview...   The trouble is, it doesn't say who it is with or what its for!!!!

So I have to ring the places I think it might be with and lie.

Stupid short term memory!!

Back in the swing...

Looks like I'm back in to the swing of things...

I trot off to work each day, but only for 3 hours.  Today I had coffee with my brother after work.  Tomorrow I'm having coffee with my sister.

Being brain damaged is strange.  My brain can do all the things it could before.  I'm just as good at working out programs and thinking outside the box which has them impressed at work...  But when it comes to speaking, I sound like an idiot!

Often, my brain can't think of a word.  It's on the tip of my tongue!  I used to think it was drinking, but it isn't.  It is the brain.  Stupid brain.  Unless I get a job with the NDIA (national disability insurance agency) where they will understand, I doubt I'll ever earn enough bucks!  And I've only got 3 years of wage insurance!

I've got to think of a way to get rich; and quick.

Get rich quick eh..?  LMAO!

I'm still here...

Well so much for my job.   I have applied for several at the NDIA and I got a generic email back saying that I will be considered for one; so when they rang, I assumed it was that!

But it was a "client" thing.

So I got up early; showered and dressed.  Learned my lines all week!  For naught!

I said to the woman that I've been waiting so long I've almost got it!  She said that once accepted, I'm accepted for life so I should do the plan and everything.  That way, if they stuff up again but don't kill me, I'll already be in it.

Kill me now.
Stuff up again and not kill me!!!!

Thank God. It's Friday...

I didn't realise that work was taking so much out of me.  But I can only hang my head tonight, so exhausted am I!

Dylan came over for a drink and to get his pressy tonight; although I could barely keep my eyes open.  Thank God, he's gone out for tea with his father!  Tomorrow I'll be okay and he's coming for breaky.

It will be nice.  Two of my kids in for breaky...

Another damned day...

Don't you feel like life is one big mouse wheel and we are the mice..?

Every day it seems like I'm doing the same thing!  Get up, walk Sharpie, come home and get ready for work.   Go to work blah blah blah!

I am being careful what I wish for as usually, when I wish for something to 'shake up my world'; it is some ruthless move that makes me wish for my boring life again...

Work again!

How quickly we zoom into work mode!  

I have walked Sharpie all around the cemetery in the early morning light.  It's nice; so clean!  We took our usual route and he is getting a little older now.   He'll be one next month and so I've started to see a change in him.  He walks beside me (most of the time) and the lead doesn't pull tight.  Plus he isn't doing that awful playful biting!  It makes me think I'll keep him around for a bit longer lol

So I have to get ready and go to work.  

I think I'm in a routine!  I didn't expect that it would happen so quickly but I get up at 7.30.  Walk Sharpie.  Come home clean up and type my blog.  Then I get ready and leave.   Park out of town so I have to walk some more.  Stop and have coffee in town.  Do my day and finish!

I think I like it!

Bummer... You can't sue...

I didn't think about it; it wasn't a way out or anything but I knew, before the lawyer spoke that I wouldn't be able to sue.  It took two years but finally, an answer!

Looks like you can go to hospital and be given brain damage and get zip.
Pity I didn't trip over an apple peal!  lol

Lucky I wasn't counting on it!

Wow. Work. After 2 years!!

Well it is next month, so if you shut one eye and squint with the other it is two years...

I don't get nervous anymore.   My neurosurgeon saw to that.  But I intend to go to bed early tonight and maybe not drink at all this week.   :)    I get smashed really easily but I'm not stupid...  I hardly have any.  

I drink I think because I'm bored!  Not because I have any great affection for it but it puts me to sleep and makes me not think about things.   How sad!

Home Again... And guess what? I got a job!

It was the first one I went for!  I'm shell shocked?  I kind of believe my brain is stuffed; but maybe it isn't...

So I start on Monday!!

Jeez. I hate waiting!!!

I bought a new washing machine.  That's where the trouble began!

I got an email saying that the driver will call between 6.30 - 10.30 am this morning.  Trouble is, I didn't get a phone call!  So now I'm trying to work out with the guy who organises it what the hell is going on!

And I'm going out for lunch at 1 pm.  I'm not NOT going!  It is a welcome to the workforce gig!
