And this is what I end up feeling like...

Well blogger all were probably wondering where the heck I've been! Right?! Here I am working my tail off in the office! I tell you I really have to force myself out of bed every morning to get to my job. I swear, I would rather get my teeth pulled than go into work. The above photo is just one peek into my fabulous job. I suppose you could call me a computer geek, spending close to 10 hours a day at the desk, typing away. Placing doctor orders in, so patients can get the right meds to make them better. HEY! What about sharing! Yes...the go-to girl would love a nip of the ol'dilaudid. To make the day go faster.

Let's not digress shall we...back to moaning and bitching about one's job! No respect, no glory! Heck! Not even a damn THANK YOU. Would it be so hard to once in a while throw the little people a bone of gratitude once in a while. I really don't trust or even really like anyone for that matter. But, I plaster on a smile and poise myself at the desk to look like I am ready for the day. The whole time begging for a earthquake to shimmy one side of the building, so that it is damaged beyond repair....ok *packing up desk* I am out of here pronto! wonder over to some wonderful beach with a great book. And just hear the surf...instead of listening to a army of phone calls (almost 750 calls a day).Just some form of ESCAPE! Something...almost anything! It is enough to drive a girl to the drink. I have become best buds with Jack,Jim,Jose!

On a lighter note...I have also been preparing for a Scrapbook Retreat. Since, my birthday falls on a Wedesday (April 16th) I am celebrating by treating myself to this retreat! It is 2 nights and 3 days. I can't wait to dive right into all the clever things the hostess's have got planned! Getting things put together and deciding what I want to make and bring....I know the pressure of it all!

The Owners/Hostesses who are putting on Retreat!

My second home, Jim calls it! I have invested a ton in this store! A TON!

And tooboot, my baby nephew is horribly sick (poor baby) so I have been over there every spare minute to help out where I can.

Things are going well, well almost well. I will have not seen Jim in 3 weeks by the time he comes home! If you see a sock...don't come a knocking! *evil grin*
Love to you all! And it just really warms my heart that some of you really missed me and I read all the warm fuzzies! I adore all of you to bits!
With much love,

I can't wait to see you at the retreat. It is going to be just the break you need! We promise to pamper and cater to your every whim (almost!).

Sandy said...

Hope your little nephew is feeling better soon.
Have a great weekend.
Sandy :)

Suzanne said...

WELCOME BACK!!! Thought you were a gonner for sure. Sorry to hear about work, the baby and Jim. Good probably won't kill you, the baby will get well and Jim will come home. Also, semi-good news...I almost won a pair of socks at Leah's. She held a contest and all you had to do was write about a favorite food! The winner would get a pair of hand knit socks. Unfortunately her knitting buddy won (I was robbed! Couldn't here knitting buddy just knit her own?). If I'd won I would have shared one with you to hang on the flag pole or on your door knob. It would have looked so pretty, but I didn't win, so you won't be getting one. That's why it's semi-good news.

It's a beautiful day, as you know, so I'm running in and out of the house trying to do yard work. I'm so far behind with blogging b/c I've been ill this past week, but slowly starting to feel better and catch up. I'll talk to you soon.

Have a wonderful weekend and a beautiful mini vacation scrapping.

Love you and missed you terribly!

Leah said...

Yay Robyn's back! Boo that work sucks. Yay Scrapbooking retreat! Boo not seeing Jim in so long. Yay seeing him and gettin' busy! oops, didn't mean to be rude there...

and p.s. I'll have another contest soon as I finish socks and mail them. I love contests!



Cecile said...

Well Robyn, you could do what I did and find a new job. But then again, there is an adjustment period there. And most Doctors are well... Assholes. I know because I deal with them too. I am glad you are O.K. I hope the baby gets better soon, I hope you get a raise, and I hope you see Jim soon.

Hi Robyn,
It sounds like you've had a rough week. Hope this will cheer you up...I put your package in the mail yesterday so you should have it by Monday or Tuesday. I will post pictures on Monday so don't go to my blog if you don't want to spoil the surprise! Have a fun weekend. I'm going to a Victorian Tea this afternoon and I'm looking forward to that.

Anonymous said...

Yea, I finally get to see you post. I have missed ya girlie but then I too have been absent and had alot going on.

Wish we lived closer we could both use a stiff drink about now. I know I could. We would be able to share horror stories together. So unfair that lives have to be crazy and babies sick.

You hang in there sweet Robyn as life will get better or at least that is what I am telling myself. Miss ya girlie and hope to hear from you again soon. Take care and hang in there praying for ya my friend. Big ((((HUGS)))) to ya.

Gig said...


Glad you are back!! Missed you, glad you are going scrapbooking, you deserve it.

Hope the baby is better soon. Glad for you that Jim will be home. Sorry that work sucks.

Come on over to The Onion, it can be entertaining. *grinning*


PAT said...

It's great to see you back!!

Have fun at the scrapbook retreat and enjoy a very Happy Birthday, Robyn!

Hope your little nephew is better very soon!


Suzanne said...

Good morning! Happy Monday. It's a bit overcast, but after yesterday's heat, I'm grateful.

When you have a chance visit my blog. I wrote after you commented. Perhaps it will help. Two more things: email your address and also let me know if you're going to be home on your birthday (and this week in general ~ cuz you may get a delivery!!!)

I'm hoping Jim will be home to help celebrate your birthday. If not, stop by the Cafe and we'll watch the bartender dance then go to the Vegas Room with the girls ~~ where everyone's a winner!!!

Love you honey. Hang in there.

Rebecca said...

Hang in there girl, you shall prevail! I'm in job hell myself right now. Ugh. So I'll join you on that beach, okay??

Happy Birthday! Your scrap retreat sounds like a blast!!


Leah said...

Robyn, dear girl, you have NO IDEA how sympathetic I am to what you're feeling and going through (re: comment on my blog). Wow, do I ever understand. Come on over to the Wild Onion when you have a chance and we'll all eat our weight in cupcakes and have a group therapy session!!!! xoxo Leah

Cecile said...

We have been looking for some acreage. We have always wanted a log cabin in the woods. We found 4.5 acres not too far out of town with huge pine trees on it. It is perfect with a pond and everything. We finally made an offer that the Seller's accepted, so we will be closing on the deal in about three weeks. I am hoping to get out there this weekend and take some photos of the land to show everyone my prime real estate. I am glad that my comment helped put a bright sunny spot in your day. I am sorry you have had to deal with so much Shit. Here have a pair of hip wadder boots, and a shovel. It might help. Well, got to get the kiddos ready for bed. Night, night, and Happy early Birthday!!!!

Rosemary said...

Hi Robyn,
Good to hear from you. Stop working sooo hard.
Have a nice time when Jim gets home.

Suzanne said...

Hi baby! When you get a chance come on over to the Wild Onion. There's a brilliant surprise waiting for you (Leah is the champion of brilliant)!

Happy Tuesday almost birthday girl.

Love you,

P.S. Honey, are you going to be home tomorrow?

All Pink girl said...

'54Bomber said...

Hey Robyn,
Well now that you've gotten that off your chest you can relax and enjoy your Scrapbook Retreat.

Sorry that your job hasn't turned out the way you imagined. May your birthday mark the beginning of a happier and more successful time.

Happy birthday,
Mark. XO
ps. If you haven't already done so, you really should get on over to the WILD ONION CAFE!

Cecile said...


Julie said...

You poor girl...working around doctors can be the worst!!!

Please stop by my blog and read about a creative contest I am holding with a great prize. If you are not interested - please forward it onto as many people as you can. Thank you!

Terri and Bob said...

Much love and HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I miss hearing from you. I think the retreat sounds like FUN and you deserve it so much.

PS Love that first couple of pictures!

Suzanne said...

Honey, open the front door. Something's waiting for you.

Gig said...

Happy Birthday Robyn,
We gotta party for you at the onion, hurry on over, we are all there!!


Suzanne said...

Where the hell are you? I drove all the way to Elk Grove to deliver flowers and a card from the "Gang," and you've yet to appear. Which of course means that gorgeous bouquet is still at the front door! Missy, you better make an appearance soon or I'm talkin' only to Jim. Happy Birthday.

Suzanne said...

Oh, I put wet paper towels over the roses to keep them fresh, which means they're dry by now and probably smothering the crap out of the poor roses. Come on honey. Give me a break. I'm dyin' here. I didn't arrange the bouquet for the front door woman.

Suzanne said...

Alright, that's enough. I'm coming back down tomorrow and I'm stopping by the office. I'll have my feral kittie get up on, but who cares, we're friends! Just overlook a lot! I'll stop by the house and give the bouquet some water. Come on with me sista.

Mr. Shife said...

I hope things are looking up for you since you last posted. Happy Birthday too. Sorry I am day late. And I hope the heck you are enjoying yourself on your retreat.

Skeeter said...

I know these feelings ... thank goodness for the weekends ;-)

Maija said...

OMG! You are so funny with those pictures!! I LOVE art retreats - it gives me a chance to just get away and be "Maija" for a few days.
I hope you first evening back with your hubby was grand!

Suzanne said...

Are you back yet?! Hope the weekend was beautiful and you're well rested. I also hope you have lots and lots of "goodies" to show us.

Hope some of the roses survived for you to still enjoy. Probably not because I picked them the wrong time of day and most I picked fully open. At least you have the memory.

Love you my dear,
Suze XO

Felicia said...

LOL That teddy bear is a hoot. Hope you get a break from work soon :)

Suzanne said...

Okay, that's it. I need my Robyn fix. I refuse to detox.

Skeeter said...

I'm voting with Suzanne on this one. No detox for me either :-) Best wishes and thanks for another great post!

Suzanne said...

Okay, I'm voting with Skeeter and Suzanne. No detox.

Dot said...

Hi sweetie

Thought I would pop in and say hi! The retreat sounds like it will be wonderful.

Sorry to hear that work has kept you so busy. Hope you get to see your lovely man vey soon!


Dot xx

Dot said...

P.S Hopew your nephew is much better very soon!

Leah said...

Hi Robyn! Miss you and hope things are a bit better at your end, and that you had a great time on your retreat!

Suzanne said...

Where is my favorite killer of a front yard tree!? God, it took like 5 minutes to write that damn sentence correctly. I have Ohno draped over my arm and he isn't making typing easy. Honey, when you have time go to my blog. Something pretty is waiting for you and also go to the Cafe ~ Cielo is holding a Dessert Carnival and you can read about it at the Wild Onion, then visit her blog too. Bindi's already entered her little number, and we just have to follow her lead.

Love ya baby. Drinks are on me at the Cafe. See you there. Just don't come in fast, swing the saloon door and flatten me like a pancake. That happened last time and I'm still seeing that cukoo bird flying around my head.


P.S. Hey Jim!

bindhiya said...

Dear Robyn,
Hope you having a beautiful weekend..
Please check my place....
I have something for you :))
♥ & ((hugs))

Junie Moon said...

There are indeed days where I'd like to run away, too. I love your pictures.

A scrapbook retreat sounds like such a grand thing to do. What fun you'll have.

I'm so sorry your nephew is ill and will think happy positive thoughts about a quick recovery.

Suzanne said...

Hummmmmmmmmmmmmm. Like Bindi, I have something for you too...a good swift kick in the.........

You're missing Kylie's birthday. Oh well, probably for a very good reason. Hope all is well.

My love to you and Jim.
Suze XO :)

Skeeter said...
