When it rains crap...

it really pours.

Today was my 3-hour glucose test (no results yet, but so far I'm not too worried). I got to the lab at around 8:30 this morning, had my first blood draw (of four) at 8:40, drank the glucola (fruit punch flavored this time - the orange is better), and then sat around the waiting room for the next three hours, punctuated only by 3 blood draws on the hour each hour. Fun, right? It actually wasn't too horrible, except for the one phlebotomist who kept rolling my veins (so that was 2 extra needle sticks), and I'm actually glad I was there instead of at work.

Which is where my boss quit today.

She's one of the main reasons I've stayed in my current job for so long, is an excellent boss, and I'm really going to miss her. I got the news via email when I got back from the lab and burst into tears. I'm happy for her, but sad she's leaving. The 2nd in command at work left last week, so we're pretty much without leadership now.

Tomorrow is going to be super fun.

To make it a little less painful, I'm taking in chocolate cake. That should fix everything, right? Please tell me it will.

Oh no! Luckily, I think chocolate cake does, indeed, fix everything.

Oh that sucky! My boss quit recently too but she gave 2 months notice. It's awful when the person that makes you want to stay, bails. :(

I'm so sorry! :( But the chocolate cake will make everything better. That, and the fact that I'm sure you passed that glucose test with flying colors!

That stinks. Hopefully the work situation will stay good for you even with changes.

Congrats on finishing the glucose test - hopefully your results will be good ones!
