Another week begins.....
Well, mine actually started yesterday. I had decided on Friday to pull the Sunday shift. Why? Well, with our vacation coming up, I will need the time off later in the week to get laundry/packing done. And I kept hearing the other girls saying how they'd have to work 2-3 weekends in a row. Well, I got a case of the "Guilties", since my vacation is part of the reason for that. So I volunteered to work. ( Note to self: STOP THAT!) This way I have both Weds. AND Friday off to do what needs be done before we leave. Which should be easier on me in the long run.
So this is the first chance I've had to get on this thing since Friday. Which is very unusual for me. A big THANKS first to Kim, who sent me a CD of her DL pics! I'll get mine to you as soon as I have the time to get them together- I PROMISE! Life has just been too busy for me to have much "fun" time. Which, I suppose, I shouldn't complain about.
I also received an e-mail from Scar, letting me know that he has those tickets he promised me! I will probably have to wait until after I get back from vacation to meet him and pick them up though. And to break the news to hubby that he's going to a DL concert. Devon can't go, she has a prior family commitment ( and plane tickets already paid for!). But she's really pissed she can't go- I don't blame her! I just hope I don't get too much flak from Jon about it. We're already spending monies on the trip, it would be like him to complain about this. **SIGH**
We've been dealing with an unusual problem at work, and I don't know what to do. It seems that a family of raccoons had made it's home in the woods behind our store. Which is fine, except they are using our dumpster & trash cans as their feeding stations! I left work the other night, and noticed I was being "watched" from the can out in front of the store! 2 sets of beady little eyes, which belonged to 2 little raccoon cubs. I mentioned it to management, who are aware of the "problem" - but have no idea how to solve it. Now, don't you all think they should call animal control? Catch said "family", and take them somewhere away from here? I mean, I know they're cute and all, but the gods forbid one of our customers goes to throw something out and gets bitten!!! And I heard that that almost happened to one of the clerks the other day while taking out the trash! Not to mention, if they are caught in the dumpster when Waste Management comes....... UGH! I think they need a new home- PRONTO! Well, maybe I'll take this up with our new manager. He may be more inclined to help than the last bozo did.
And to prove to you all that my life is anything but "normal"...
Kimmie came to me, and asked me why I had to go to the Dr.s this week. ( she has been told that mommy is done taking all the "bad medicines") I told her he was the one that will put mommy "back together again". Well, she just came up to me as I was typing this, and asked me if I had my new "Booby" yet??!! Out of the mouths of babes.......
P.S.- I just heard the news that the man who "voiced" Tigger ( one of my favs!) has died. Not the way to start a Monday. RIP Mr. Winchell, you will live on in our memories.
Hope you all have a great Monday, I'll catch you all later! Peace and Love to all! KC
P.P.S.- I just received this pic from my cousin Rae- It's just what I needed, a giggle to start the week- ENJOY!
