Rant: forgot to mention to the doctor that I have the red head gene so when they tried to put me under twilight anesthesia for the egg retrieval, I just got a little woozy and couldn't move my body, but I didn't go under at all. Thankfully egg retrieval doesn't hurt that much, it's just some needles, so it wasn't an issue.

Rave: eight eggs retrieved, and five are grade 1 after three days! Grade 1 is the best, it means full normal development without any sign of issue. One is grade 2 with minor fragmentation. Now they go one ice to prepare for implantation next month (studies show there's a much higher success rate of full term development if they're implanted the next month. The medication that encourages egg development screws with the uterine lining making implantation less successful).

Rant: I made cookies and ate too many and now I have a tummy ache.

I'm not sure how comfortable I am with the proximity of the egg chat and the cookie chat. :lol:

Rave: After 18 years and 11 months I quit my job at the marina there were a lot of reasons but one of the main ones is the main manager is retiring and instead of offering it to me they decided they wanted to bring in "New" (ie cheaper) blood. I honestly didn't even want the position but since I had cut back from 4 10 hour days to 3 10 hour days so I could work a second job (vet tech) they felt my attention was not solely on them (well duh).

Rant: I have been working 7 days a week for the last year between the two jobs and knocking myself out. So I decided to look for a weekend only job, quit the marina, and still work at the vet's office which would still give me an entire day off.

Rave: I applied for the weekend job, they called within an hour and said I had impressed them so much they wanted to offer me a full time job with benefits and a huge pay hike.

Rant: I had to quit my job at the vets as well to take this job. I really like the work but the management is terrible and acts like we are interchangeable monkeys, I really like my coworkers though some really smart funny women I am going to truly miss. I did agree to work one day a week at vets for the next 90 days while they try to find a replacement.

Rave: I found out they had a second position with a great pay bump and talked one of my friends at vets to applying for it because she would rock it so hard and they hired her as well.

Rant/Rave: Tomorrow is my last day at the marina, it is bittersweet. I am nervous about stepping into a manager's position in a new area for me(property management). Wish me luck!

Wow. Big changes indeed. Are you going to get a longer lie in the mornings you're not at the marina now?

Best of luck with the new position. When do you start?

If I get up before 6AM again it's because something is on fire lol. I start on the 15th the guy who does the training is gone this next week and I kind of wanted a week to just get some projects completed and take a breath.

That sounds legitimately awesome all around, and I’m. Retain you’re going to kill it in the new position!

Rave: Got my first COVID vaccination, getting final one some time in the next 12 weeks. One step closer to being able to visit my family in person again.

I think Jeeves is a vampire or something, he'll outlive us all.

Rave: As a "forever-DM" who hasn't go to be a player in D&D since a very brief couple sessions years ago, one of my players has said they're going to be running a longer campaign that I'll be able to really sink my teeth into.
I'm going to be playing a trickster harlequin-style bard who has a penchant for shadow illusions.
I am so hype.
