Saturday Musings

It's the weekend...Yahoo LOL

The week was a tad bit long for me but I muddled thru. Things have been pretty slow at work since we've caught up on all our backlog. We were so used to having more work than we knew what to do with and 11 hour days were the norm for me and now we're back to our regular schedules with more people than we need. So three girls have been transferred to another department, and we've had all overtime cut for the time being. Yesterday I was asked if I would want to give my Supervisor a hand and do the daily production reports, line status and some general computer entries. It would give me an additional hour or two of work a day and frankly, all I want to do is keep busy because trying to make 4-5 hours of work last for 8-9 hours makes for a very long and tiring day. I also see this as a stepping stone to a promotion. I have my yearly review in December and it would be really nice to move up another notch.

I took the dog to the groomers this morning for his perdicure. They are so good there, very quick and accomodating. He got the award this morning for being the cutest white chihuahua they've seen today. Kind of funny since we were the first appointment. He has to make his rounds when he gets there and goes behind the desk to visit the ladies especially if they are busy and ignoring him. They also have a few cages with animals up for adoption and we always go and check out the new arrivals.
Casper is a white persian male cat that lives there and he wasn't having any of Hunter's hyper activity this morning. After three attempts to make friends and getting his nose swatted each time, Hunter decided my lap was a safer place to hang out. I think he was a little sad.

It's a little overcast and chilly this morning but the sun peeks out from time to time. It's going to be mid 60's by the afternoon and that is fine with me. I've got laundry out on the line and another load in the washer. Most of the housework is done for a change. I've just got the bathroom to clean and make up the bed once I get the sheets off the line. I am going shopping this afternoon for an outfit for Graduation. I've only got this weekend and next so I better get a move on.

Well that's about it for now. Such an unexciting life I lead. Take good care.

MY life is so unexciting, I have nothing to blog about.

My time at work is usually so busy that I have a hard time trying to take a bathroom break. And then when I do, the phone rings or else a customer will walk into the office. I'm there alone a lot of the time so it's not too easy sometimes...LOL.

I hope you get a promotion, Lainie. You sound like a very hard-working, dedicated employee. We need some of those at the feed mill.

Weather is perfect! it could stay just like today until next November and not a single complaint from me!
