He also verified Aug 30.............I told him that is *stalking Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band day*.............Harleyfest and Bruce at the lakefront, outside...............loud concert and winds blowing correctly = free concert...............
I reiterate, I won't believe it until I see it about having those days off

Co-worker who is on vacation during the 4th of July got scheduled that week........... not only that week, but that day! A group of co-workers and myself were talking to boss this past Monday.............boss mentioned that everyone has asked off for the 4th of July and I piped up that I didn't and boss made a comment that I better count on working then.
Schedule comes out and I am not scheduled on the 4th.........I don't know whether to , , or :some other emotion:. I told co-worker that I would work on the 4th all day .....................

The other funny (i.e. sad) thing is a co-worker who got no hours on the next schedule has NO HOURS on this new schedule...............................she is a part time regular guaranteed 20 hours.............unfreakin' real When she confronted him on Monday about this, he said he noticed the problem and thought it was odd..............she followed up with"and you thought I wouldn't notice or say anything?"
It is one of those days where I can laugh instead of cry...

Got home in time to see the end of Tim Russerts Memorial Service.
Cried. Mr. Russerts brother in law is quite talented on the guitar
When the Boss came on, I lost it
The double rainbow at the end of the service was comforting

I'm soooooooooooo pissed right now. The resort is DEAD this weekend. Completely dead so now I'm on a 3 1/2 day weekend. Only 1 1/2 days of that is unpaid. I have PTO to cover it but I'm planning a 10 day visit home in August so I wanted to save it. I'll barely have enough accumulated by then. I can borrow against it if I have to but I'd rather not. So now not only am I not getting the OT I was getting used to in the past few months but now I'm going to be under hours for the 2nd paycheck in a row. I guess it really is 2nd job time now. I'll spend the day tomorrow job hunting. Everyone at work is pissed because we were told 40 hours each week all summer long but now I guess it's going to be a little quieter though the end of this month than they thought.

My weekend was in the middle of this work week so I only worked 3 days in between weekends. :weird:

On the other hand.......I'm tired and could use a break. The hot weather is a little harder on my system than I thought it would be so I'm worn out.

Nap time.........

fah, do you still work in emergency dispatch (I don't know what they call "911" in Canada )

Yes, I still have the same job

Last month my employer congratulated me (and other full timers) on 20 years of full-time employment and gave me a $100 gift certificate for the restaurant of my choice

I love the job but still hate being short staffed. We have 2 full time positions available and a year maternity leave position available ~ any takers

And in Canada they call 911, 911

Two week holiday coming up in July We are going to Oregon for 5 days, and then head back up to Vancouver Island for 8 days.

The recent personal highlight in my life is that I have discovered a new beer that I love - Brahma

Well, now that you mention it, one of our city's possible solutions to the budget problem is to get rid of our 911 call center and let the county take it over

I don't think any of them can go to Canada though.

At least I know if I ever go to Canada and have an emergency, I know what to do now

Lily and I just cleaned the kitchen from top to bottom. I have a headache from inhaling everything and now she's hiding under the bed.

My sister's work does "take your dog to work" Fridays. Each person with a dog takes a turn brining their doggie in. It's Roxy's day today! It's so weird being here without her. I miss her but she's having a good day, from the pic my sister sent. I'll post it in a bit.

So they came and fixed the air conditioning this morning and I finally have a decent amount of air cooling down the room up here. My mom however insists that there is something wrong with it in the basement and that the basement is too cool and is usually warmer. I've tried to explain that it's probably going to be cooler since the air is working properly and that it's always cool to start with. She claims that it's been warm down there all the time. We've spent the last 20 minutes arguing about it and I've finally told her fine she can deal with it all this time around.

With that venting over I would like to document that no matter if I'm 100% sure that I'm right about something I'm just going to let my mom believe whatever she wants. She's becoming very forgetful and is so stubborn in her thoughts that it makes me want to scream sometimes. There is an argument everyday.

Sorry to vent but I needed to get my frustration out and dealing with all this makes my life a bit more difficult than in the past.

Walking through the living room I did see that Motley Crue is on Larry King which I find to be kind of funny. He does have on a variety of guests but I never would have dreamed Motley Crue being one of them!
