Coffee & a Chat – I Survived!

Just before the chaos of this last week, I managed to spring clean my favorite bookcase.

WHEW. I made it. It has taken two nights of sleeping 8+ hours to recover but here I am.

Work was made to be even busier as we received our first (and perhaps only) small shipment of the Pfizer Covid vaccine to distribute. Word spread quickly and we were swamped with phone calls of people trying to skip the waitlist and convince us that they needed it more than everyone else. We only had two people get down right rude and one screamer so I’ll consider that a success because I honestly expected more of that to happen. Mostly, everyone was super grateful that they were finally able to get it.

On top of that, I was applying for scholarships (turns out my schooling is not going to be 100% covered since I’m not in-district like I thought I was) and began the process to refinance the house. I couldn’t push that back any longer though, as mortgage rates are slowly creeping back up.

Next week should prove much easier as I only have one thing on my plate besides work which is figuring out which classes to register for this semester. I found out that my new school is accepting almost all of my credit hours from my old school that I attended in 2006-07 which, puts me at halfway through my degree! *does a dance* I was not expecting that and it was the boost I needed to make sure that school happens.

Currently reading:

Since this is one of those books that each chapter is about a different movie/true crime story, it’s easy to put down and pick back up even days later. That has worked out great for me this last week. It’s also available on Kindle Unlimited if it’s something you’re interested in.

That’s it folks! I am happy that last week is over and that I feel recovered after so much sleep. How was your week??

  1. Glad to hear the jerks were at a minimum when it came to the vax. All the pharmacies around our area have big signs right at their front doors sayings “We don’t have the Vaccine and we won’t be getting it”. At least I don’t have to deal with those people when I go into the store.

    Nice bookshelf! What is that “thing” on the top right of the case? Some sort of furry pumpkin wearing a harry potter hat?

    1. Ha! It’s a gnome! He’s all hat and beard. πŸ™‚ My dad made the bookcase for my birthday a couple of years ago. I absolutely love it.
      I really wish my boss would have our phone prompt a message before people could get through that said, “Sign up for the waitlist on our website!” It would have cut down on the chaos at least a bit.

  2. Great news on your credits being carried over – go get that degree girl!! I did mine as an adult learner & honestly it was the best & most enjoyable thing I ever did so I’m super stoked for you 🀘🀘

    1. Thanks! I wish I could start NOW. I know I’m going to be a much better student than I was. Before the goal was to at least pass, now I want to pass with high grades. πŸ™‚
      I’m glad that you had such a great experience doing it later in life, that gives me even more hope!

      1. When I was a professor my favorite student was the humble, eager older student. My least favorite was the I’m-going-to-talk-all-the-time-because-I-have-wisdom-these-kids-don’t-have older student, followed closely by the I’m-panicked-about-everything-so-it’s-all-your-fault-and-I’m-going-to-be-an-a-hole older adult student.

      2. One way to signal to your professor that you’re going to be awesome: on the first day, sit in the first row and line up 6+ perfectly sharpened pencils on your desk. πŸ˜‚

  3. Good news on acceptance of previous credits. I finished my degree as an adult and pulled in credits from a couple of previous schools. Earning that degree was one of the best things I did. No matter what age I am, I still feel a huge sense of accomplishment. You go, girl!

  4. Ugh, that sucks about the schooling not being 100%. Rates are going up here, too. My BFF locked hers in at 3% I think and she’s glad she did because now they’re at 3.5%. I’m hoping they’re not too bad when I buy hopefully later this year.

    People are ridiculous. Obviously you’re hoarding all of the vaccines for yourself *rolls eyes*

  5. Still so pumped for you that the classes you took before will count toward the degree you’re going for. Can’t wait for us to start classes!! πŸ˜€
    I’m glad there weren’t a lot of screamers/jerks at your work about the vaccine. I’ve noticed the techs and pharmacists at some of the places I’ve been (mostly Meijer and CVS) recently looking very burnt out and I feel so bad for them. πŸ˜₯

    1. I would straight up hate to work at one of those pharmacies right now. I mean, on an average day I don’t want to work there and now it’s probably a hundred times worse. The amount people tell you their life story and all their conditions to try to essentially guilt you into giving them the vaccine even when you’ve already told them that you have NONE is about 75% of the time. If I could pull the vaccine out of my ass and give it to you I would. But I can’t, so please stop wasting my time and energy.
      I can’t WAIT to finally have that phone call this week with the student advisor and get registered for some classes. Then it will feel even more real and I can go OFFICE SUPPLY SHOPPING! Rob wants to go and get new supplies for his office too and I GUESS that’s fine. πŸ˜›
