Mom Visit, Work, Swing

On Wednesday I went to see Mom in person for the first time in 4 months. The visit went as well as can be expected.  They had a tent set up in the courtyard, with a metal fence separating the visitors from the resident.  We are allowed 1 person, half an hour per week.  Even with her hearing aids and an amplifier she couldn’t really hear me, and of course she couldn’t read my lips with my mask on.  Good thing I had purchased a little white board that I could write messages on.  She seemed to be able to read it.  She didn’t talk, she just nods so it’s hard to carry on a conversation.  

It was cooler so I sewed some more of the garden swing and also went back to the optometrist for an adjustment as my new glasses are hurting one ear,

No word from HR or manager at all.  I think he is mad at me.  I don’t care, he won’t let me work from home, won’t let me go in but not see members, wouldn’t give me just 2 days a week, so screw him, I won’t go back, they can’t make me.  HR told Carolyn there is no pressure to go back, so why am I different….because he needs me,  he has 2 brand new FSRs that know anything.  He needs me to train them.  

Thurs. June 25. – I sealed the sign for the hot tub and the bird houses I painted.  And then I finished sewing the garden bench seat. The old canopy was in shreds.  I bought the canvas material about 3 years ago but never got around to doing it until now. I had to sew most of it by hand. It looks so much better.

My manager texted me to say: i understand from HR that you will not be returning to the branch in July as we have discussed but rather you will be off until at least the end of August. We will adjust the schedule to that effect. Let me know if you want to discuss anything regarding your leave and or return to work. So yeah!
