Mardi Gras and FMLA
Today is Mardi Gras-so laissez les bon temps roulez! Now I have to remember not to eat meat tomorrow or for the next bunch of Fridays. I got home late from work. I dropped off my paperwork at Personnel for Family Medical Leave Act. Turns out they're now scrutinizing all paperwork and wouldn't accept what I had from the doctor. She was nice enough and explained what I needed-but then we discovered that I'm not eligible for FMLA. You have to have worked so many hours in the past year-and I was out for so long on workman's comp-I don't have enough. I'll just have to use "sick leave relative". I should be eligible again in 3-4 months. Talk about a pain. And basically all because people screw with the system. My dad will have heart surgery in just under 2 weeks and I'll be there, FMLA or not. Anyway, I'm celebrating Fat Tuesday now, then bed, and back to work.
