Journaling or Diary ? That is the Question..

Hello to all who comes across this and likes to have a good laugh or maybe even find something of interest to sit back and ponder upon.

While my initial intentions of becoming a “blogger” on WordPress was for genealogical aspects and releasing or sharing what all I have discovered, it hasn’t really happened yet !

Yes I will get life together and then the information on here like those I follow when it comes to Ancestry research and Genetics. But not just yet. I want what I post for those aspects to really reflect a certain twist then those that I follow.

Since some view me as a somewhat “twisted individual”, I can only say that I do have the answers that I worked so hard to find to know why I am that way.

These past 2 weeks have pretty much been anything but fun for me. I am someone who when placed in charge of something I take hold of it and shake it like a dog with a bone till it is completed. Thus the past two weeks have shown to me while I can with no problem take on multiple tasks it is who you are doing these tasks for and what companies are involved which can throw a wrench in your well oiled plan !

Yes, I know, you are thinking to yourself, you can handle probably 5-10 things at one time or some of you are the type to take on only 3-5 things at a time. My personality does not really allow me to only do several things. My brain decides it wants to have at minimum 35 things going on all at one time. Darting like fireflies in your brain and hitting the sides of it then bouncing off skirting around the edges and all of a sudden fly right back thru the center colliding with others that are also processing !

If you equate it to a computer, your having a basic meltdown in your system and you really need some rebooting after backing it up and cleaning out all the crap in those temp files and then defragging your brain to make sure all your files are in order and your programs that helps you to function is all working and is in linear form for you to pick the next thing to do ! Yes, that is how I have been feeling up until yesterday at 4:30 pm when I finally sat down in my easy chair and decided to relax. Well my body did not my brain !

For those of you who may no longer work for anyone do you remember those days when you did work tirelessly those 40-50 hour or more weeks and you just needed that boss to say to you , okay no work this weekend ? Yep, you know what I am talking about.

When you are doing something for someone else even though somethings are on a timed scheduale due to appointments that need to be met with doctors and then having to make sure that person’s insurance coverage for these healthcare workers are covered all while trying to do this on the telephone due to their websites have glitches in them or continously redirects you to another area for additional information, you can really just throw in the towel.

Case and point, these past 2 weeks I have maintained a dailey regiment on the telephone with numourous companies for aspects of my own personal health insurance, car insurance and homeowners insurance and playing phone tag with my sisters insurance company her physicans and driving back and forth round trip almost 30 miles to pick up forms that have been signed and getting forms completed after printing them off from all providers, it is a task that sometimes I really wish I did not have the knowledge base to come even close to handling ! And also doing this, trying to make sure that she is set up at her home for wen she arrives back after being in the hosptial and rehab from surgery for nearly a month again !

While I am proud my knowedge base is very braod when it comes to all areas since I have worked in all areas over my adult life, sometimes you just have to sit back and wrangle from your brain how you onced took care of all these things at one time without any form of problem or hiccup what-so-ever. And not just these forms of tasks but also handling your everyday aspects of life’s little hiccups if a kid is sick and you have to stay at home and even work at home when home computers were not even in the limelight ! Yes doing everything over the telephone days.

If you are like me even a tad bit you get frustrated with today’s technology which was supposed to be designed to accommedate and streamline all these aspects. Well that is really not an option when you call someone and have to constantly hit prompts or repeat yourself because the computer generated algorithms does not pick up on your language pattern especially if you have a twang to your voice. Yes you are laughing because I know many of you also have encountered this as well ! Don’t fall off your chair as I know some off you will be or are laughing so hard and saying, I know what that is like all too well.

While talking with my car and homewoners insurance company USAA which I just switched over to them in August, they still have everything totally messed up. Customer service representatives can not override anything and then try to tell you that a supervisor or even a department manager can not override to get onto your account since your computer is having a meltdown and you don’t have a cell phone for them to text you a frigging code to give them via the telephone due to their system will not allow you to complete one small aspect since they designed their system to make you have not just one log in but 2 login’s when you and your spouse’s coverage is with them.

Then after allowing the customer service representative 15 minutes to read over all the notes of former conversations from August 15, 2021 to present September 15 2021 while you are placed on hold to hear a music that is worse then the old elevator music and for them to tell you after they placed you on hold to read it all, that they are not able to really answer your questions, but they will take it up to the next level of representative who can, but it may take 24 to 48 hours for that person to call you back. Come on I know you want to slap your hand on the desk or chair and either say , well Peggy this is how things roll these days, or maybe you are thinking the same thing I am !

It is rather unpresentented these days that any form of person who works in areas of these actually know what to do or they have not taken enough pride in what they do to go out on a limb and learn more aspects so they as Customer Service Representatives , the first line of contact to all companies, they should have the answers to the standard questions all persons who signed up for their services should know when you call in. But people apparently no longer have that form of work ethic or take pride in asking for additional training or take it upon theirselves to research these things so their job would glide so much easier when they are on the telephone with a customer or client or what ever verbage and termonolgy they have chaged it to these days.

Well, it is 9 am and I am still awaiting return calls from several places from Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and only pray tell who all will faulter in their jobs today if or when they decide to call back ! So todays post is more in line of a Journal thing rather then a Diary as we all know Diary’s are for romatic endeavors or thoughts not everyday life aspects that we traverse through.

Live life to the fullest and enjoy everyday as if it were your last !
