  • New Chapter

I have some news. For my phlebotomy career, I will be starting a new chapter in it. Long story short, about a week ago I was approached at work about starting a new family health center lab for them. I am the only one who has a very extensive lab background.

I have started labs, I was a head phlebotomist. Let’s put this way I have done more than anyone else in the area of phlebotomy than my co-workers.

After thinking about it for a day, I told them I would put my name into the hat for the position. I applied at 8 am and by 4 pm I was offered the job. I have never seen a position get approved so quickly. So on February 17th will be my last day at my current FHC. On the 20th I will begin this new FHC.

  • Mixed Feelings

I have mixed feelings about this change. Yes, I will miss my patients I have right now. I am the most requested phlebotomist at my FHC. The few patients I have seen and told this too are upset that I will be leaving. I already had one say she is following me to the new FHC. Most are elderly and have transportation problems, so they have no choice but to stay with the FHC I am currently with.

I know everything happens for a reason. If you been reading Seduction in the Kitchen, you know I have had many issues with the immature co-workers, or as I call them, “the clique.” I am 41, they are 20 somethings. They think it is a party place, to me this is my job, not a party. Unfortunately, management is friends with them so they get away with many things.

One the best examples of what I have gone through with these girls was what I wrote on Crock Pot Cheese Soup. Things did get better when all but 1 left. It was funny when they were all there, we were the worse FHC in the system. After 2 of them quit, and they hire people more like me, we became the best FHC.

Then, we became a hospital, and the management decided to not only hire the 2 that left back but promoted one of them. Slowly things have been going downhill again.  Friendship sometimes can blind people to what reality is, that is what happens at my work. What is funny, it is only a few girls that cause these headaches. It isn’t like it is the whole lab.

  • Everything happens for a reason

I was seriously done with work. For me, June could not come quick enough. Why? Because I was waiting till June to look to move out of Ohio and start new a new job somewhere else. I can not take the circus atmosphere that surrounds me every day there. Suddenly out of nowhere, I am being asked to start and open a lab.

As I said it mixed feelings, yes I will miss my patients. Yet this will allow me to show the system what I really can do. My skills will show through and not be hindered by a toxic atmosphere of immaturity. As I say, change is good. Also, everything happens for reason.

  • Caramel Coconut Delight Bundt Cake

Ironically, I was the one who would be the one who remembers everyone’s birthday at work. I usually made them a little cake or cupcake. I am, for the most part, the go-to person at the lab. They don’t know what to do, they ask me. Which is one of the reasons “The Clique” doesnt like me and causes problems.

I decided since we did become a hospital, and the lab did double in personal, to do a monthly birthday cake. For January, I came up with this Caramel Coconut Delight Bundt Cake.  It was suggested I do something with coconut, and I started playing around.

When coconut was suggested for the cake. I kept thinking about Samoas from the Girl Scouts. So I made my mind up I wanted to make a cake that was similar to the Girl scout cookie. I took to work and the birthday girls loved it, plus the cake was devoured within an hour.

I am going to miss making goodies like this and bringing to work. There are co-workers I will miss as well. I know they will miss me too. “The Clique Trio” I will not miss at all.

    Samoas are the best Girl Scout cookie, bar none. This is a simple, scientific fact. I remember in high school, one of my dad’s employees was selling cookies. I bought a box of them, and proceeded to eat the entire thing from the time I got to work after school at 2:45 to the time I left at 6:45!

    Congrats on the new role! I hope it’s less of a commute, you get better hours, you get better pay, or some combination of the three! I’ve been lucky enough to never be in a toxic work environment, but I have to assume it really is quite demoralizing. That had to make you proud that you were sought out for the role.

      It is actually a little commute, my current location is less than 10 minutes from the condo. It is an honor that they asked me to do this, plus I do get to finally leave the circus atmosphere now. One 5 days to go till I open the new place up for them 🙂
      GSC are sooo addicting I can believe it. The thing I hate about them now is they really gone up in price!

    I think bundt cakes are so much fun. First they have a neat shape that makes for a fun presentation. Second you don’t have to spend hours decorating them. This cakes sounds so delicious. Perfect as dessert or a brunch item for the weekend.
