Quick Update


I've destroyed my back again (I suspect The Whacking of the Weeds had something to do with this) and spent the entire day lying in a hot bath, popping ibuprofen and praying to walk again. The folks at work of course got pissed about this, so I repaid them by a) producing a doctor's note (I have a seventeen YEAR history of this fucking injury, people!) and b) asking for a year's leave of absence starting June 1.

I got the job at the hospital (whee!) and have no intention of returning to the job in a year or ever, I just asked for the leave as a safety net. So if they turn it down, no biggie, I'll give them two weeks notice and walk. A week if they're exceptionally pissy -- my collective agreement doesn't actually require me to give any notice at all.

No knitting whatsoever has happened; I'm unable to sit long enough to do much of anything, but hey, maybe I'll manage to get a week off in between jobs!

I really, really hope they turn down my request ...

Well, you can't knit - so you need to be tagged - your it.

See my blog.

{See what happens when you bring me over to the dark side and have me knitting dish clothes}
 
Hurray on the new job.
I recommend chocolates and port. Doesn't really do anything about the back, but...
 
Congratulations on the new job. And, I hope the back lets up soon. But, pain or no, you still funny lady.
