Megan and Irony have ended their relationship.

I've been around. I swear. It's just been a tough week.

Last Wednesday, I fell as I was leaving work. I slipped outside and landed on my left knee. Hard. It still hurts a lot. I filed a worker's comp claim Thursday morning and went to the urgent care Thursday afternoon. It still hurts a lot. When I went back to the UC for a follow up, the doctor treated me like I'm totally faking. She gave me 800mg of ibuprofin to take every three hours. Since I value my liver and kidneys, I've opted to deal with the pain and only take one of those a day. I go to an orthopedic clinic on Friday. The irony is it was my turn to handle worker's comp. Sigh.

On Friday, I was told I'm losing my job on May 1st. Yes, I am noting the irony of losing my job on May Day. I had another conversation about this yesterday, which did not go so well. I don't feel like going into it here, but I'm pretty angry about the situation.

On Saturday, I took His Highness to the vet. He had earmites and worms. Ah, the joys of adopting a shelter kitty. We got treatment for both in the vet's office. He is doing well. He weighs in at a whopping 4.5 pounds. I was advised that my flyweight prize fighter is too skinny. Partly because he's so damn active, partly because he's still growing, and maybe the worm issue might play a part too. He's a good eater. He ate a black bean tonight, just one. We're not worried right now that he's too skinny.

Alright, I'm tired. The dishes aren't going to wash themselves. I'll be back soon. Love to you all.

Oh man I'm sorry about losing your job. At least you have some to look before you get the boot. Good luck in finding a new one.

Oh gosh, that sucks - although you pretty much guessed that you might be losing your job... Hope you can find something you like before May 1 (oh - the irony).

And do make sure you get that knee looked at properly as a bad knee can really cause problems - and yes, it hurts. You might need to do some physio on it.

Sorry about your knee. B*tchy nurse treating you like you're faking. Hope it gets better soon.

And sorry also about your job, you must be worried.

Kicker is skinny and lanky. He eats heaps so I think it's just the "teen" stage he's going through. He too is VERY active. He is like Ricochet Rabbit all around the furniture. So funny.
Hugs to you.
