Today was my first day back to work since i got sick and was in the hospital in July. I have been doing housekeeping for 19 years for this same family and watched the kids grow up, go to college, get married etc.
While i was in the hospital my Boss who is a Dr. (and so is her husband) decided that since i had been missing a lot of work (due to my being sick and hospitalized twice in 3 months) she neede to hire someone else.
I was so sad because i thought this is it, i always knew this day would come when i'd lose my job.
Well she told me the other day i am the senior housekeeper and can come when i am well and do whatever it is i can do. The other housekeeper is basically my assistant to do all the big hard jobs that i can no longer do.
I was thrilled to hear that she had no intention to fire me at all. She just needed someone to take over all the big stuff.
was thinking today while back at work that i hate this disease is now taking my ability to complete my work and a thought ran thru my head.... <b>I AM NOT 21 ANYMORE</b>, How can i expect that i, as a 43 year old should be able to keep up the pace i did, when i was 24 (AND with 100% lung function back then) ? What an awesome Boss that she hired someone to make my job easier....
I do have another job but it is at my own pace, my own hours , days etc. which is pulling car parts in the junk yard and selling them. I love that job as well because it is right up my alley. I am a car chick with my own Muscle car
and i love rifling thru the junk yard<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif" border="0">

Diane,
Congratulations on still having your job! It sounds like your bosses are great!

If it makes you feel any better, I am going to be 40 next month,and no CF, and I still can't do what a 21 year old can<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border="0"> This body just ain't what it used to be, lol!
On the serious side, I am just so happy to see that they are helping make your job easier!

Whew, I wasn't sure what I would read here re: the boss. How cool that they were watching out for you & keeping your health in mind by getting someone else to do the big, down & dirty work!

As for the junk yard, let me know if you see any 1997 Mazda pick-ups out there, I may have an order to place. lol

Diane, glad to hear you're well enough to get back to working. That is wonderful that they're so supportive of you. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border="0"> I tell you it's damn near impossible to find a GOOD housekeeper! We have this lady from Yugoslavia who is just wonderful and has been cleaning here for just over 7 years. She's had some family medical emergencies and I was more than happy to find temporary help while she went back to Europe for 4 months. If nothing else the temp help convinced me that I really appreciated Leela's work!! You must be really good at what you do!

Hey, if you ever come across a GM alternator from 1970 with part number 1100884 stamped in them, snag it for me! <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border="0"> They have a unique back case and there were only about 4000 of them made total... talk about a needle in a haystack! I've got one in my car, but know several other fellow 70 vette owners who need one! Take care & don't overdo it back at work! ~Juliet

LOL! If you can find a hood ornament to a Mercedes Benz (any year) I got first dibbs!

What a great boss you have...and yes, I guess when you have to realize how old you are, it kinda sucks. However, since your boss also realized that and the fact that you had been there so long, its about time to move into the managerial position, eh?
