The new girl is calm, generally not excitable. I like her and hope she works out for at least a few months.
I will not be the type, this time, to let abuse go until it gets crazy. As an abuse survivor I asked myself what I was doing to make the other CNA behave that way. I could tell too that I was having a very hard time saying no to her which gave her a license to run over me, and she did. I hope this girl has better boundaries than the others.
One quick thing we will have to get settled is that we will go to the store I shop at! Today she wanted to go to a Goodwill by her house where she could shop for her kids while I got what I went for. I said I need to go to a different Goodwill. She complained that it was far and had clothes for older, white people. I reminded her that the trip was for my purposes and that getting clothes for her teenage kids was secondary. She was quiet after that.
Monday I go see Dr D in his office. The CNA will take me and will complain about the distance. I’ll remind her she was told we’re going to this 20 mile round trip appointment every other week AND her company pays mileage.
We will go to the Kroger I want to go to, not to grocery store she wants to go to. I shop at Kroger and Walmart, much to the chagrin of my CNAs who express that I could shop much cheaper at other stores. Shut up! I shop at those two stores, leave me alone! She got on the kick today, too, about how I should go to Safeway and Aldi. (rolls eyes) I shop where I shop, leave me be.
So anyway, it was a quiet week, nothing major. Some minor irritations like which store I should go to, but other than that it was good.
I did very little work on dolls but I did get half the hair done on my neighbor’s doll.
I had Korean BBQ but now I’m craving Japanese food.
