Christmas Eve

Working today, have tomorrow off.  Hoping that today is a busy day at work.  Not slamming, but at least busy. 

I can work on a couple swaps in any down time.  One of them I just need to put an address on and then head to the post office and get postage for.  The other one is a journal swap, so I can do some writing.  I do have other things to take care of too.

Losses and sadness.

One of my dearest friends lost his father yesterday afternoon.  He finally succumbed to his various illnesses after a 7+ year battle.  He will be missed.  My heart and prayers go out to my friend and his family.  I'll have to get a sympathy card out to him.  He also knows that if he ever needs anything, that I'll be there for him.

100 posts!!

Day off from work today.  Worked on a swap and will be working on another later--or at least that is the plan. 

Did some reading.  About to go and do some errands and have some me time.  :)

Niki is laying here sleeping.  She is so cute.

Back at work...

Back at work...bored now.  Only have about 4 more hours though.  I'm off tomorrow, but I've got things to do and people to see.  :) 

Next week is going to be crazy.  I'm hoping that it is going to be crazy busy, but we'll see. 

Looking forward to Christmas!

Gotta Rant a Little

In one of the swaps I'm hosting, I get a pm from a possible swapper asking all sorts of questions which were (at least in my opinion) answered in the swap description.  But in trying to be a good hostess, I go ahead and answer them.  She shoots me another pm, with more questions.  Again, I answer them.  The third pm asked me how much something like this would cost to send (this being a smallish 'spa package').  I like to think that I am at least somewhat intelligent, but I cannot intelligently speak to how much something like that would cost to send.  I politely stated, that I was unsure as to how much it would cost because each were going to be different dependant on what was sent. 

Bored now

It's Saturday afternoon and I am just sooo bored!  Usually, I'd be at work today, but I had taken my last vacation days. 

Niki is sleeping, my man is doing some tinkering.

Enjoying my days off...

I'm enjoying my days off.  I go back to work on Monday.  Bleh.  I love my job, it's just one of the people who works there that makes life a bit difficult.  I'm sure everyone knows at least one person (whether in life or at work) like that. 

I've got all my Christmas shopping done.  All the presents are wrapped.  Of course, Niki, my feline, had to try and 'help'. 

Working on a number of swaps.  The 'big' one for right now is a journal swap. 

Got a lot to do in the next few days--some of the necessary evils in life, some baking, stuff like that....

Sunday, December 11, 2011


Mom gets back into town late tonight.  Will be staying with the kids tonight.

I don't have to work til noon tomorrow.  Yay!  Then I don't have to be in again til next Monday!

I hope that I am able to sleep better tonight than I did last night.

Wrapped a few more stocking stuffers.  I'm almost done with all my Christmas shopping--Just have to get Niki some stuff.

It's the Weekend!

It's Saturday morning.  I'm house & pet sitting for my mum.  She's out in Texas visiting my bro, sister in law and my two neices--one of them just had their 1st birthday on Thursday.

Had some cereal for breakfast.  I'm going to work on one of my journal swaps later--I'm a little behind on it. I'm also going to work on two Christmas card swaps.  I can just get them signed for right now.  I have a third one I'm in.  In all three, I'm just waiting for partners to be assigned.

Another Manic Monday???

Working today.  Bored to tears.  I need to work on my journal for this month, but not really feeling it right now.  I wrote a little earlier.  I have also worked a little on a few other swaps today also.

I'm off from work tomorrow, but I have a few things I need to do.  Is it really a day off when you still have to go out and actually do things???

About 2 hours and 20 minutes before I am off from work.

Saturday, December 3, 2011

Save me from the insanity!

At work today, not really working all that hard.  I did have a guy come in, do his paperwork and look around and decided not to buy anything...waste of my time and paper.  If you were only going to look, why bother doing paperwork???

The only other person (besides my employee) that I've seen today is the mailman.  Totally bored at work.  Signed and dated some FB's.  Wrote a little in this month's journal swap.  Did some reading. 

Looking forward to having tomorrow off with my man!

Friday, December 2, 2011

working and other stuff...

Working all day today.  Bleh.  Picked up lunch for my worker and I.

Got the last package I was expecting and got it all wrapped up for Christmas.  I just have one more big thing to get and the rest are going to be stocking stuffers.  I'll probably have all my shopping done next weekend.  Or at least I am hoping that I do.

Wednesday, November 30, 2011


I've got most of my Christmas shopping done.  I've got one more "big" thing to get, but I'm not sure as to which way I want to go with that one yet.  I'll make my decision eventually.  The rest of the stuff is small items and stocking stuffers.  Most of the items are already wrapped and ready to go.  I think I can have most of my shopping done within the next couple weeks.

At home right now, playing with Niki and waiting for my game turn. 

Saturday, November 26, 2011


At work--already had two sales.  Yehaw!  Bored though. 

Worked on a swap--will work on it more later.

Got my two packages sent out this morning.  I still need to get stamps and postage on a few things going out, but I can do that stuff within the next week or so. 

Still waiting on three incoming Christmas packages which are gifts.  I still have one big gift to buy and the rest will be stocking stuffers and stuff like that.

Black Friday and more

It's Black Friday.  I haven't braved the crowds since 1998.  I haven't wanted to either!  I'm working today.  I've got most of my shopping done already.  I've only got to get one more major item and the rest are going to be small things/stocking stuffers.  I've got two packages almost ready to mail out.  I'll probably send them out on Tuesday.   I've just got to enclose a card with each and then seal them up. 

I'm at work totally bored right now.  The only person I've seen outside my employee is the mail man so far.  I've worked on a swap and I'll probably work on it more later.  I'm also going to go look for more to sign up for here in a bit. 

Thursday, November 24, 2011


Happy Thanksgiving. 

Things I am thankful friends and family, my cat, my health, having all the things that I do--small and large.

Wednesday, November 23, 2011


Working now...bored to tears.  Only have about an hour til I get to go home. 

Have a few shows on tonight.  I have to work on my game turns tonight. 

Will finish up making my Thanksgiving stuff also!  :)

Sunday, November 20, 2011


Bored, bored, bored...Did housework.  Waiting for laundry to finish.  Need to take the trash out, but that can wait til later. 

Will be making dinner later.  May do some reading until then--not sure.  Have the tv on just for some background noise. 

Getting paid on Friday.  Did some Christmas shopping.  Still need to do a bit more.  I keep thinking that I'll do a little bit of my Christmas shopping throughout the year, but I seem to always be waiting til like October or November to start it.  Silly wabbit!

Saturday, November 19, 2011

Work and other stuff...

Saturday...Working 10-8.  Bored so far--have only seen the mail man.  The one employee I have working with me today isn't due in until noon. 

I've got a book I've started to read--may be able to finish it today.  We'll see.  Working on a few swaps--swap-bot ones and just with some people I regularly swap with. 

Munching on some butter toffee peanuts.  Contemplating what to do for lunch. 

I have tomorrow off from work, but I still have some of the necessary evils in life to take care of.  Is it a day off when you still have things to do???

Friday, November 18, 2011


I've been working on a few swaps for swap-bot.  :)  I'm still waiting on a few swaps I'm expecting.  I'm also waiting on some ratings for swaps which have been received or should be received here soon.  Is it too much to ask that I get a rating soon after you get my swap to you???

Looking forward to Thanksgiving.  :)

Started my Christmas shopping already.  Got one package almost ready to go.  I just need to add the card to it and seal up the package.  I just have to get a couple more things for another package, then I'll be able to package sent off also. 

As to what to get my man--I have a couple ideas so far.  I also have a couple ideas for a few others also, but I don't know if all of my ideas are going to be in the budget for this year or not.  I think it's going to be a pretty lean year for gifts because of the unexpected medical bills I have to pay off.  Bleh. Even with insurance, I still have to pay through the nose (or at least that what it feels like).

I was thinking about picking up a part time job.  Even if I start as seasonal, at least I'll have my foot in the door to stay  longer than just a seasonal person.  I'm not looking for more than 20 hours a week.

Sunday, November 13, 2011


It's looking to be about that time for a number of changes in life.  I've already started.  I've told a couple people that I no longer wish to have them as a part of my life.  I am tired of them thinking that their happiness is dependant on me and what I do for them.  I also told them that I am not here for them to use as their sexual fantasies or fetishes.  It is definately freeing to have these people out of my life.

The rest of the changes are all physical for me.  Diet changes, exercise changes etc.  Now is as good a time as any for changes. 

Saturday, November 12, 2011


Picked up my man at the airport this morning before coming into work.  I'm working til 8.  Niki, our cat seemed happy to have her daddy home.

Had Chinese for lunch. 

Looking forward to having tomorrow off so I can take care of some of the necessary evils in life and also work on some of my swaps.  I have two ready to go out--I just need to get postage for them.  So I'll probably do that on Tuesday.

Thursday, November 10, 2011


Finished reading John Grisham's latest--The Litigators--last night.  Need to get another book to read.

Totally bored right now.  I'll work on a couple of swaps when I get to work later.  I'd work on them now, but I'd rather have something to do at work later so that I'm not bored all afternoon!

Monday, November 7, 2011

Bored Now

Ok--been bored all day.  Had only one sale.  Bleh. 

Less than an hour til I'm off of work.  :)  Going home to my man and my cat.  Wondering what is for dinner tonight.

Will I sleep tonight?  We shall see!  Definately need a good nights sleep!  I think when I take my next few scheduled days off, I will try to catch up on my sleep then!  Hopefully I'll be able to do so.


It's Monday again.  Working--or I should say--at work today.  I have tomorrow off.  And there is much happiness!

I'm working on a number of swaps.  I have a couple ready or close to ready to be sent out. 

Wondering what is for dinner tonight.  Have one show tonight to watch.  :)

Saturday, November 5, 2011

Almost time to go!

About 90 minutes before it's time to go home!  Yay! 

Wondering what is going to be for dinner tonight...

Have one show to catch up on from last night. 

I'm off tomorrow, so I'm probably work on some of my swaps.  Also have to take care of some of the necessary evils in life.


I'm at work, bored and exhausted.  Last night was worse than ever in recent history.  I didn't sleep very well at all!  Ugh!  My back is killing me. 

We've had one customer so far today and we've been open since 10.  It is now shortly after 2 pm.  I've seen the mail man also.

Worked a little on a couple swaps and also did some reading.  Thinking about lunch, but have no clue as to what I want, so I might just snack a little on what I do actually have here.  I may go and do some more reading also.  I'm enjoying my latest book so far. 

Friday, November 4, 2011


Working again today--or more to the point--at work today.  Would like to have the hours changed to 10-6, but I'm not going to hold my breath.

I need to stop by the post office and pick up some flat rate boxes to use for some of my swaps. Working on a few swaps.  Hoping to have some of them done before partners are assigned!

Didn't sleep all that well last night--no big surprise there!  I think I may be getting sick.  I've been more achy than usual.  I'm getting a runny nose and a sore throat too.  Bleh.

Contemplating sustenance.  Not sure what I want, but I need something.

Thursday, November 3, 2011

Work and other random stuff

Thursday, early evening, working for about another hour and forty minutes.  Bleh.

Working the next two days for ten hours each day. 

In search of a new body...the one that I currently inhabit is currently old and falling apart. 

Will be working on a few of my swap bot swaps over the next few days.  I think I've gotten enough stuff for two of them, but we shall see.  I've also got a few letters to write, but I really haven't been up for much writing--even though I should be writing so I don't fall too far behind on it.

Thursday, October 27, 2011


Working.  Would rather still be in bed sleeping.  My sleep habits haven't been normal in a while.  Back is sore.  Just need a whole new body!

On my own for dinner tonight--my man is playing pool tonight. 

Payday is tomorrow.  Yayness!

Wednesday, October 26, 2011


Trying to make the necessary arrangements for cremation/memorial etc. with family members long distance is not a good thing.  Cremation expesive, no life insurance, very little in bank account.  Have to figure out who can help with what.

Also have headache from lack of sleep/food/caffeine.  Bleh.

Makes me want to go do research into wills/living wills/power of attorney etc.

Tuesday, October 25, 2011


My mother in law passed last night shortly before 8 pm Eastern Time (5 pm AZ time.)  She will be missed.  Plans and prep for creamation still being worked on.

Monday, October 24, 2011

Monday again already???

It is what it is...Enjoyed my day off yesterday even though I had to take care of some of the necessary evils in life.  I'm off tomorrow--just going to relax and take it easy. 

My mother in law is in the hospital.  Doesn't look good for her.  :(  I don't want to be sounding too morbid, but it looks as if it's just going to be when for her.  Honestly, I don't think she's going to see the new year. 

Saturday, October 22, 2011

Work Work Work

Working today til 8.  Then home.  May do some laundry when I get home--depends on how I feel.  Tomorrow most definately is a catch up on the necessary evils in life day--laundry, grocery shopping, clean the litter box out, take out the trash. 

Friday, October 21, 2011

Back from Vacay...

Back from vacay--in need of a vacay to recover from my vacay!

Working today and tomorrow, then off on Sunday.  Sunday will be one of those days to take care of some of the necessary evils in life--bleh.  Laundry, grocery shopping etc.

Wanting to rather stay home and in bed today, but I have to pretend to be a responsible adult.

Monday, October 10, 2011


Bored!  I have less than 4 hours left of work.  So far, no customers--bleh. 

I have a ton to do tomorrow before I go on my vacation.  Luckily I have tomorrow off from work! 

I'm going to try to sleep in or get a nap in tomorrow, but we'll see!


Had a pretty ok weekend with the family.  Rained pretty much all weekend.  Saturday we went to the Magic Kingdom.  Took a fall and ended up going to hospital because I landed on my hip and couldn't move leg.  Ended up just being majorly bruised--no broken bones.  Phew!  Still sore.  Have some pain meds. 

Got a lot to do tomorrow.  Got laundry to do, packing, and some household stuff to take care of before I go out to Arizona.  I am so looking forward to it! 

Thursday, October 6, 2011

So ready for the weekend!

I am so ready for the weekend to start already!  I have about 2 hours of work left!  Looking forward to having some fun with my family!

Contemplating sustenance.  Thinking maybe getting something delivered to work, but unsure as to what I want.  Perhaps pizza.

Wednesday, October 5, 2011

Is it time yet???

Working til 6 tonight and then working tomorrow 12-8.  Looking forward to having the weekend off!  Only working one day next week and then on a much needed vacation. 

Wondering what is going to be for dinner.  Need sustenance--have some stuff to snack on to hold me over til dinner. 

Saturday, October 1, 2011

Bored, bored, bored...

Did I mention lately that I was bored now???  Working for another 4 hours or so.  Then I'm going home and I'll be off tomorrow.  There will be much rejoicing!

Will I be able to sleep tonight??  We shall see!

Working three days next week and then I have all next weekend off.  Then the following week, I am only working one day and then won't have to be back to work for over a week!  Yayness!  I am so looking forward to having time off!


My grandmother is OK!  She was just dehydrated.  She was given some fluids and had a few tests run just to make sure. 

Contemplating sustenance.  Not sure as to what I want just yet.  I just know that I need to eat something.  Still caffeinating myself... 

October 1

Work work work!  Another day working, then I have tomorrow off!  Have all next weekend off! 

My grandmothe is in hospital--have no idea as to what is wrong.  She's getting some tests done.  Hope all goes well...

Didn't sleep well--again last night.

Thursday, September 29, 2011

Work Work Work!

Back at work again...working til close tonight. 

I didn't sleep all that well last night--hoping to sleep better tonight.

Some people STILL don't get it.  Obviously they don't get that I don't want them.  Why don't they just go the heck AWAY already!!!  I'm avoiding going to hang out with them for a reason!  I try to avoid ANY contact with this person for a reason!!!  I don't want you at all!  Get it through your head already!!!  I don't need the stress of you in my life!!!!!

Wednesday, September 28, 2011

Hump Day

It's Wednesday!  Working til 4, then have a few errands to do after work.  Contemplating what to do for dinner tonight. 

Bored now.  Can't wait to get off already!

Will I have mail to pick up at the POB?  I may just check it on my way into work tomorrow.

Monday, September 26, 2011

It is what it is...

Monday @ work, bored to tears. 

I sent off two swaps today for swapbot.  Still awaiting three ratings on stuff I have sent out before. 

Have tomorrow off!  Looking forward to having a long weekend and also to my trip to AZ.

I didn't sleeep all that well last night.  Hoping to do better tonight. 

Wondering what's doing for dinner. 

Saturday, September 24, 2011

So very Bored!

Bored now.  Looking forward to going home and having tomorrow off and coming in late on Monday!

Need sustenance--forgort to bring my leftovers in today.  Bleh! Wondering what is going to be for dinner.

Are we there yet?

Working today.  :/  Had breakfast--cup of yogurt and a banana.  Trying to eat healthier. 

Hoping for some business today.  Will I or will I not get my bonus on my next payday?

I am so looking forward to having some time off!

Thursday, September 22, 2011

Time to go home yet??

Seriously--is it 8 yet?  I am so ready to go home!  Bored.  Still have a letter to respond to, but not in the mood to sit and take the time to do it.

Thinking about what to do for dinner--my man is playing pool tonight so I'm on my own. 

Have a few shows tonight to watch and one from last night to catch up on--love my DVR's!

Looks like it wants to rain again. 


It doesn't seem to want to make up its rain...more rain!

Working today til 8.  Contemplating going out to get something to snack on later.  Don't know what I'm doing for dinner tonight. 

Totally bored!  Worked on some stuff.  Have a letter to respond to, but not sure I want to sit and write out a response just yet. 

Looking forward to having some time off!  :)

Saturday, September 17, 2011


Is it 8 yet??  Bored at work.  Got all the stocking done, the trash is already taken out.

Wondering what is going to be for dinner tonight.  So glad to have tomorrow off! 

Looking forward to my vacation!

Getting hungry.  Should have brought some snacks in today.

Where does it all go?!?!

Got paid yesterday, and it seems as if my check is already gone (or at least the money is 'spoken' for)!  I think it is my stalker's fault!  His name is Bill--he takes many forms!!!  You know, there is Telephone Bill, Electric Bill, Cable Bill, Housing Bill, Gas Bill, the twins Credit and Card Bills!

Working today--putting some stock out. 

Two of my 'relatives' are here visiting--my aunt Flo and Uncle Arther.  Bleh.  I really don't like them--they come and visit every so often. 

Going to just  relax tomorrow. 

Wednesday, September 14, 2011


Worked today, or better way to put it--I was at work today.

Made a big ol' salad for dinner--needed something healthy.

Get paid on Friday.  I have a few small packages to go out to a couple of my swapping pals and one going out to somebody new.

It looks like I am going to be getting a small bonus this year.  :)

I am so looking forward to my vacation!

Sunday, September 11, 2011

September 11, 2011

To all those who died 10 years ago in the horrible terrorist attacks--you are not forgotten.  To all the families whose life has been forever changed, you are in my prayers.  To all those who have helped--FDNY, NYPD, all the volunteers, THANK YOU!

Are you ready for some FOOTBALL????????  It's the first Sunday of football season.  My man is ready...I think I'll just not watch...Because it is important to him, I'll ask but to me, it's just a game!  :)

Saturday, September 10, 2011


Still at work, bored!  Have been working on one of my swaps for swap-bot, but my hand is falling asleep!  Have about three hours left in my work day.

Wondering what's for dinner.  Had a salad for lunch.  Love me some rabbit food! 

Looking forward to my vacation next month!  Definately need one!

Saturday at work!

Blah blah blah!  Work again?  Really?  At least our hours were cut from 9-9 to 10-8.  And there is at least some rejoycing! 

Took care of the banking this morning.  Got mail sent out.  Updated Twitter, Facebook and checked mail--now what am I going to do for the next 8 hours?!?! 

Contemplating sustenance...Not sure what I want for lunch, not really all that hungry! 

Tuesday, September 6, 2011

Why On Earth Am I UP?!

It's about 5:20 AM local time and I've been up for about half an hour...I can't sleep for some reason!!!!!  Arggghhh!    Why???  This totally SUCKS!!!!

I'm going to try to go back to sleep now...

Saturday, September 3, 2011

Are we there yet???

Bored and tired!  Had a couple more customers so far today.  Still want a nap.  Still want to fall into a coma like state when I get home and go to bed!

Still have part of my lunch left over. 

Worked on a couple of my swaps.  Will work on them more later.  Still have just under 5 hours left in my work day!  Will be so happy when the hours get cut back!

Blah blah blah...and then...

Still at work--bored to tears.  Had one customer so far.  Contemplating lunch--thinking about doing Chinese food for lunch. 

Ready for bed!  Is it time to go home yet???

I may take a nap later!  I definately need one!  The lack of sleep is finally catching up to me!  Hoping to fall into a coma like sleep tonight!

Saturday Morning

Working again!  I feel like I just left this place!  I didn't sleep all that well last night--no big surprise there!  Hoping to sleep tonight. 

Going to work on a couple of my swap-bot swaps today. 

Had breakfast, need another caffeine injection here soon.  I wish that there was a Starbucks close to work!  That would be so awesome!

I don't know what is doing for lunch yet.  Too early to think about that.  Too early to think period! 

Hope the day goes by quickly, but I'm sure it'll just drag on and on!

Friday, September 2, 2011

Friday! Yayness!

It's payday Friday!  Thats a good thing, of course; but then again, part of pretending to be a responsible adult, is paying those bills when it's that time! 

Got most of the bills paid all ready--just have one more--the phone bill to pay with this check. 

Working, til closing today and tomorrow, then I have Sunday off.  Wish I could have a 'normal' Monday to Friday 9 to 5 job, but I'd probably be totally bored with it and with whatever it was I was supposed to be doing.  I will be so glad when we cut our hours back.  We don't even know what our hours are supposed to be on Monday!  We're not even sure what our hours are supposed to be after Labor Day.  10-8???  10-7??  10-6?!  We're going on the assumption that we're going to be 10-8, but you never know!

Working on a number of swaps for swap-bot.  Signed up for a few more that I don't have to start right now...:)

Monday, August 29, 2011

Monday at work!

Bored to tears.  I have about one hour left of work, then I get to go home.

House/pet sat for my mom over the weekend. 

I survived Irene!

Contemplating sustenance. 

Niki has a hairball she's been trying to hack up.  Hopefully it'll come up soon!  My poor little baby not feeling too well!

Friday, August 26, 2011

Friday, early evening

Just about to go pick up something for dinner.  Pepperoni pizza and cinnamon sticks.  Quick, simple and easy. 

Got my oil changed earlier.  Had to be done. 

Mom got to Texas without any hassles or delays.  Yay!

Friday--A DayOff

I'm off from work!  House and pet sitting for my mom. 

Just going to relax til I have to go back to work on Monday afternoon.  Going to work on a few swaps between now and then. 

I have one swap ready to go out, it just needs an address of my swap partner.  I have one almost ready to be sent out.  That one should be ready by the end of next week.  The other two are new, so I have time to work on those ones. 

Wednesday, August 24, 2011


A/C not working properly--maintenance guy was supposed to come by today--but so far hasn't.  Not surprising at all. 

Paid some bills.  Got gas.  Did laundry, emptied the dishwasher and otherwise just took care of some of the necessary evils in life. 

Working tomorrow, then have three and  a half days off. 

Saturday, August 20, 2011

Bored Now

Still at work, totally bored.  Have about an hour and a half left of my work day.  Getting hungry, wondering what's going to be for dinner tonight. 

One of my cousin's birthday is tomorrow.  :)

Looking forward to having tomorrow off from work!


Working today until 9 pm.  Beat.  I didn't sleep well last night.  I don't even remember the last time I slept well or even through the night!

We've had one customer today.  :( 

I forgot to check my PO box this morning.  I may check it tonight after I get off--or I may check tomorrow when I go out to get a paper.  We'll see. 

It looks like it wants to rain, but it hasn't started as of yet. 

Friday, August 19, 2011

Work, work, work!

Working today--at least my day is almost over!  Payday today...I love having direct deposit.  Got some bills to pay...bleh...that's part of life though. 

Working tomorrow also.  :(  Sometimes I wish I didn't have to work. 

Looking forward to having a day off!  Working two very long days next week, but will have five days off. 

Thursday, August 18, 2011

Been Slacking...

I have been such a slacker!  I haven't been keeping up on my blog.  :) 

My hand is feeling a bit better.  It's still a little sore. 

Allergies, or at least I'm hoping it's allergies, are acting up.

Working today, tomorrow and Saturday.  Hoping to get some letters written the next few days--it'll probably be done on Saturday. 

Saturday, August 13, 2011

Are we dead yet??

So ready to go home already--have about three hours to go yet.  My hand is still sore, but seems to be getting better.

Going to watch my one DVR'd show from last night when I get home, then it's bed time.  Wondering what's for dinner. 

Looking forward to having tomorrow off.  Going to try to sleep in.  We'll see if that happens.

What to do???

Working a 12 hour day today.  I didn't have any mail I needed to respond to the last few days.  I do have a couple letters to respond to, but that's not going to take all that long to do.  I have to take care of one thing for work today, but that also isn't going to take all that long either.  :/  Bleh.  I will be so happy when we're cut back to like 10-8 or 10-7 or 10-6 would be even better! 

I didn't sleep well last night.  I didn't want to get up this morning, but I was up before my alarm went off.  I'm hoping to be able to sleep in tomorrow.

Are We There Yet???

So ready to go home so I can put my hand in some ice, then rewrap and take some pain killers.  I am such a wuss when it comes to pain! 

Bored, thinking about doing Chinese for dinner.  Who knows. 

Have a couple shows to watch tonight.  May just DVR them and watch them on Sunday.  Don't know yet. 

Another day, another posting :)

My hand is definately swollen, sore and bruised.  Got it checked out--sprained wrist, knuckles definately popped.  Swollen, bruised and sore because of sprain.  Got some pain meds.  Should be back to 'normal' in few days.  Ice and wrapping it to help it along.  Totally sucks that it is my dominate hand and not my off hand. 

Didn't sleep well last night, but that is nothing new.  Part of it was because my hand was throbbing like a felon!

Have about 3 and a half hours left of my work day.  Bored to tears.  Working tomorrow, then have a day off.  Looking forward to a day off.

Day 13--Post 2

Had Subway for dinner.  I think I fucked up my hand though.  I took a spill.  When I caught myself, I heard my knuckles crunch.  Nothing is broken--I can still move my fingers, but my hand is definately sore.  I'm sure my hand will be swollen tomorrow.  And the bad thing is, it's my dominate hand.  I'm hoping that I don't have any damage.  I'm just hoping that it hurts because of how I landed...

I have about two and a half hours left in my work day.  I'm thinking that I should ice my hand down, but the idea of submerging my hand isn't all that appetizing right now, but I'll do what I have to do...

Can't wait to get home and see Niki!  She's my baby. 

Day 13--Post 1

It's back to work today.  Oh joy!  Would rather be off, but I gotta do what I gotta do!

Picked up breakfast on my way in.  DOn't know what I'll be doing for lunch or dinner though.

Don't really feel like doing much of anything today.

Day12--Post 1

Off today...slept in and I definately needed it. 

Doing some of the necessary evils in life today--laundry, running the dish washer...thinking of actually doing some housework, but haven't gotten up to do it as of yet!!!  I need to do it, but just haven't gotten to it yet. 

Had lunch--some corn dog nuggets.  Was ok. 

Not looking forward to going back to work the next three days.  Bleh. 

Still contemplating a make over for myself, but I don't know what way I want to go...maybe a little on the goth side...short hair, dyed eye liner....who really knows as of right now.

Day 11--Post 1

Working today--3 to close.  Sent out some of my swaps today!  There is much happiness!  Still waiting on confirmation on receipt of two of my swaps I had sent out last week.  I know life happens, but how hard is it to take a little bit of time to acknowledge receipt of a package???  I try to take great pride in everything that I send out to others.  How hard is it to let someone know whether or not you got/like the package??

I'm thinking of taking a break from swap-bot just because of people who take their time in either sending out the packages or take their time on their rating.  Swapping is supposed to be fun and relaxing...

Day 10--Post 4

Looking forward to going home and having tomorrow off!  Hoping that I'm able to sleep in!  It'll depend a lot on what Niki wants and when she wants it!

Wondering whats going to be for dinner tonight.  My stomach is still kind of wonky.  I have no idea as to why.  I may or may not eat much tonight.  We'll see.

Finished off my book I was reading.  Started the letter I have to write.  Just have to get the postage for my two outgoing swaps, but I can do that on Monday morning before I head into work.  Hoping that my two swaps I sent out last week have gotten to their destinations safely.  I'll inquire into them tomorrow or on Monday. 

Definately time to get another book or two!  :)

Day10--Post 3

I guess the words just want to flow today.  Sometimes that can be a good thing. 

Had some French Bread Pizza for lunch today and it was good! 

Need a nap now after lunch!  :)  If only it were that easy.

Got most of the stocking done.  Leaving a little bit of it for later so that I have something to do. 

Want to get the letter out of the way, but I don't know where to begin with that correspondence. 

I also have worked on one of my journal swaps. It's not a true journal--just a random musings one. 

Looking forward to my vacation!  The week long one I'm taking in October and then a mini vacation weekend the end of August.

Day 10--Post 2

Some people just need to get the hint and either get over themselves or get out of my life.  There is this one guy who wants me to be his little subbie bitch.  I've told him repeatedly that I don't like him that way but he still doesn't get it.  I've never given him any hint of me being that way either.  I've never been into the whole BDSM--D/s lifestyle.  I have nothing against that way of life, but it's not MY way of life. GET OVER IT already!  I don't want you that way!  I'm nobody's little slave/subbie.  Why don't you get it already!  Some people think that everyone else is on this planet just for their entertainment.  Get over yourself and get out of my life already!!!  The nerve of some people!

If being a bitch means taking no shit, being true to myself, being truthful, brutally honest, not changing for anybody but myself, not giving a shit what others think about me, not backing down; then I'm a bitch. 

Contemplating lunch.  I have food here at work, but I don't know if I want that or if I want something else today. 

Snacking on some ice cream for now.  Did some reading, but didn't get all that far.  Same with some of the writing I was trying to do.  I just couldn't seem to focus at all.

Day 10--Post 1

Oh the joys of working 12 hour days with nothing really to do!  I do have some stock to put out but that will take me an hour if I take it real slow!

I do have a letter to write, but that will take me maybe thirty minutes, if I take my time!

And what to do with the other ten and a half hours of my day?!?!  Haha!  I could do some reading and work on one of my swaps.  I have two swaps ready to go out, but all I have to do with those is put the addresses on them and then get the necessary postage for them. 

I didn't want to get up out of bed this morning.  Again, I didn't sleep all that well last night.  I'm hoping that I can sleep through the night tonight and get up when I am good and ready to, not get up because I actually have to!

Day 9--Post 2

Contemplating sustenance.  Need lunch soon.  Getting a bit shaky from my blood sugar being low.  Just not sure yet what I want to have. 

A little under nine hours left in my work day.  Oh joy!!!!  Hoping that tomorrow goes by quicker than today has so far.

Read my magazine, took care of one of the journals I had to work on.  Read part of another journal I got as a swap.  I do have a letter to respond to, but I may just do that tomorrow sometime and put it in the outgoing mail on Monday. 

Day 9--Post 1

It's Friday!  It's Payday!  I love having direct deposit!  Makes life so much easier!  Paid some some of my bills which were due with this check.  And there is much relief!

Working 9 to 9 today and tomorrow.  :/  Two long ass boring days, but it all could be worse--I could be out of a job.  At least I'm getting paid to be bored!  About a month or so before we cut our hours back.  Going by last years schedule, we were 10-8.  It's not too bad, but I'd prefer being 10-7 and would love to be 10-6, but I'm not going to hold my breath on going to either one of those. 

Missed breakfast, not that I'm much of a breakfast person, so it's not that big of a deal.  Not sure what I'll be doing for lunch.

I woke up before my alarm did this morning.  I guess I got enough sleep.  Who really knows though.  My sleep rhythms have been kind of wonky anyway so...we'll see.

Day 8--Post 3

Have about one hour and 40 minutes before I get off work!  Looking forward to going home and playing with Niki.

Don't know what my man is planning for dinner.  I guess I'll have to be surprised when I get home. 

Tomorrow I work all day again.  I've got to pay some bills. Bleh.  Luckily most of them I can pay online.  At least paying them online makes my life a bit easier!  I may actually put in the other ones too so I can just pay all online.  We'll see.  I also am glad that I have direct deposit!  Love that.  I am so for anything which makes my life a little easier!

Still anticipating receiving some of my swaps--looks like I may have to have one person resend.  It was marked as sent on July 24 and here it is almost two weeks later and I still haven't gotten it yet.  I'm also looking forward to receiving some of the free samples I am expecting in the mail too!  Again--love things which make my life easier.  Getting free stuff is good! 

Taking a break from working on one of my swaps.  Have til the end of the month to get this one done and in the mail.  Tomorrow is the last day to sign up for two of the swaps I am hosting.  I'll assign partners first thing on Saturday morning.  Looks like both of them are getting a great response.

Day 8--Post 2

So, I'm still working.  Bored to tears. 

Going out to Arizona for a week long vacation in October.  And there is much rejoicing!  I'm looking forward to just getting away for a bit!

Getting some more info sent to me--mostly just good places to eat and things to do!

Day 8--Post 1

My doctor appointment went well yesterday.  It was just a routine checkup, but I'm glad all is well. 

Working today--12 hours...bleh. 

Caffeinating myself at the moment.  I didn't want to get out of bed this morning.  My sleep rhythms are all out of whack. 

Wednesday, August 3, 2011

Day 7--Post 1

Doc appointment this AM then I have no idea as to what the rest of my day will hold.  May do some window shopping.  Definately going to do lunch after my appointment.  Don't know what I'm going to have yet.

Got to do some laundry and pick up something for dinner also. 

Working tomorrow.  It is what it is on that front.

Day 6--Post 2

Bored at work--but at least I only have about 45 minutes left...trying to entertain myself--singing along to a CD. 

Had Taco Hell for dinner...ugh!

Ready to go home now....

Day 6--Post 1

Working today--5 to 9.  Woohoo! 

Raining out.  Want to go out and play in it.  :)

Tomorrow I'm off work. 

Contemplating what's for dinner tonight.

Day 5--Post 3

Skipped lunch, just ate a little bit of cheese.  Stomach still off kilter...don't know why.  I didn't eat anything unusual and I'm not stressing over anything unusual either.

Listening to Concrete Blonde right now.  Playing literati on yahoo.  So very bored at work right now.  Had a few customers, but nothing too exciting.

Got about 5 hours before I get to go home!  Can the day drag on any slower???  I definately need a vacation--just to get away from my real life for a bit!!!!!!!!!  I don't want to have to worry about work, having to answer a phone or e-mails or whatever else!

Day 5--Post 2

Contemplating sustenance.  Listening to a mixed cd as I think of what to have for lunch. 

Got to work on some of my swaps for swap-bot.  Got a few which just need to be packaged up for the mail and a couple which need to be worked on more. 

Still beat from lack of sleep, but at least I'm partially caffeinated.  :) 

Day 5--Post 1

It's Saturday Morning.  I so did not want to get up today.  I ate something yesterday that is not sitting right in my stomach.  So I ended up not sleeping all that well.  Bleh.

Wotking today, but I should just be able to relax and take it easy today.  That's the plan at least.  :)

Day 4 --Post 2

Looking forward to going home!  Got about two more hours of work.  Don't know what's going to be for dinner yet. 

Looking to get away from the toxic one.  I'm usually not one to talk shit about people, but she is definately toxic today. 

Listening to one of the Jock Jams CD's right now. 

Have been working on some of my swap-bot swaps.  A couple journals mostly.  I've got three of my other swaps done.  I'm just waiting for the partners to be assigned and I can get those sent out. 

Working tomorrow and then I have Sunday off!  And there is much rejoycing. 


I am such a slacker!  I haven't posted anything in a few days! 

Been working.  Dealing with a pissed off employee.  She asked for a few days off, but isn't going to be able to have them because they conflict with other peoples requested days off.  I won't be surprised if she just no shows on the days she wants off.  If that's the case, she'll be out of a job.  She's also working on homework and got all pissed because a customer came in and she actually had to do her job and had to put her homework aside.  I have been so tempted to just tell her not to bother to go home and not bother to come back, but she lives with the other assistant manager and I don't want to have to deal with her either!  I've brought up the fact that I'd rather not have to deal with either of the two shits, but I've got to take the bad with the good...sigh...

Looking forward to a day off.

Day 3--Post 2

Got a swap I was expecting!  Yay!  I've got a package ready to go out.  Just need to put it in the mail box for tomorrow's pick up!

Work is slow.  Big surprise there!  HAHA.  Got some writing and reading done.  Tomorrow and Wednesday are my days off.  There will be much fun! 

Doing some research into vacation spots.  Not sure where I want to go--just that I want to go somewhere!!

Day 3--Post 1

Working only a 4 hour day to day!  And there is much rejoycing.  Gives me time to do some of the things I need to do on a usual Monday morning.  :)

Thinking of going to the book store and looking for a new book.  May do a few other things for me, but a lot of it depends on how much of the necessary stuff I get done first!

Niki is laying next to me on the desk.  She's looking at me as if I'm ignoring her!  Such a silly kitty!

Day 2--Post 2

Got my laundry done and put away.  Didn't do much else today.  My day off and I decided to just chill. 

I did some reading and took a nap with Niki.  I read my newspaper and clipped some coupons. 

Dinner is going to be lasagna and fresh homemade bread. 

Day 2--Post 1

A day off!  And there is much rejoycing!  Just doing some of the necessary evils in life--laundry, running the dishwasher etc.

Niki is laying here next to me, sleeping. 

Contemplating lunch--I may just finish off my Chinese food from last night.

Saturday, July 23, 2011

Day 1--Post 3

Bored at work--about five and a half hours to kill before I get to go home for the day.  We've had a few customers. 

Did some reading.  I'm currently reading Daniel Silva's latest--A Portrait of A Spy.  The next book I'm probably going to read is James Rollins' latest--The Devil Colony. 

Also worked on some of my swaps for swap-bot. 

Hoping to get some sleep tonight. 

Day 1--Post 2

Contemplating Lunch...Just not sure what I want.  Still in search of some much needed caffeine.  Sure wish Starbucks delivered!  How cool would that be?

Been working on some of my Swap-bot swaps.  Got a few of them together, just am waiting on swap partners to be assigned. 

Looking forward to having tomorrow off!  I'm going to sleep in provided that Niki (my cat) allows me to do so!

Day 1--Post 1

Working a long day today.  I didn't want to get up this morning.  My whole body hurts. 

I've got to do some research on flights and such to Arizona. 

I need caffeine--getting a headache from the lack of it.
