nope....if someone doesn't show up then it's fine with everyone else because then there's more work to do. There's only a skeleton crew each day and there's not a lot to do so if there's 1 less than those people will for sure be guaranteed a full day, if not a little over their 8 hours. Plus, everyone is willing to work any shift right now to get hours so I'd have to fight off the whole bakery for hours. Even with 3 people on vacation for the next 2 weeks there's still nothing to do.

I always hated working in a dept alone. It makes the days go by so slow. I hope you're busy with customers to keep your days moving!

I feel your pain; I have been running out of work before noon lately. I can't WAIT until diesel is MORE than $5 a gallon so I have even LESS to do! I would be the one to get into trucker's insurance minutes before a fuel crisis begins. At least my hours haven't been cut; I'd rather be bored at work than bored at home.

I have joined the nearby LA Fitness and I had a personal trainer meeting tonight. I am now trying to convince myself that building lean muscle is more important than the actual use of one's arms. I have to rest between sentences here. I like having the trainer because I have this repulsion to people thinking I'm weak, so i keep pushing. I wish I could afford more than 1 a month.

The funniest thing is that they TELL me to eat. I grew up in figure skating. NO ONE has ever told me it's okay to eat before!!

Also: Thank GOD for the 4th of July pushing back trash collections. I don't think I have the arms strength to take the trashcan to the curb. The roomie wanted some boxes of shower gifts packed up, but I think I'll do that tomorrow.

about how much is a monthly membership? There's a few LA Fitness locations near me. Once my hours kick in again I'd like to join a gym. I don't dare go into a place, or even call to find ou,t when I'm not ready. I don't need a sales pitch from them and then the follow up harassment calls. I made the mistake of doing that with Curves. I called from my home phone and they had caller id. I was dumb enough to give them my first name so they called me back a few times in one day.

WTF happened to my last post Weird. I posted that my sister just got a new car today and she keeps making me go out with her....gas, grocery store etc. I think she just wants a reason to drive it. Work is only 1 whole mile away!

I know have a very scared dog on my bed (she never comes in here other than when the loud boys are here). I also have one mad as hell cat under my bed.

the cat has no concept of sleeping in We've been up for hours already. I just paid some bills and did a little budget of my money for the next 2 months. *screwed* There's a bookstore that's by my work that has a help wanted sign up. I think I need to pay them a visit today.

at least today is good for something........I'm officially insured with work. Due to my externship, I was unable to be put at full time status when I started, even though I was working a minimum of 45 hours a week. So my benefits were pushed back 7 weeks. It should only have been 6 but whatever. I found out on my birthday that my benefits were being pushed back. At that time I thought I'd only have a few weeks left of being uninsured. It's been a long 2 months. The only rotten thing about the insurance is I to go to a regular dr for a referral to see a specialist. I can't just call up any allergist I want and see them.

Indeed. Worf has been known to wake me up at odd hours of the night so she can:

a - be fed
b- get her treat/medicine
c - get picked up and put on the couch, her favorite spot
d - all of the above, plus any other reason known only to her

I just talked to one of my coworkers. I'm a little relieved that I'm working 4 days for the next schedule. I'm off Friday, which is a good thing because my sister is off and her friend will be here so at least I'll have something to do. Then I work 4 days straight and then have 2 days off. When I did my budget for the summer I did it with the idea that I would only be working 3 days a week so anytime I get 4 or even 5 is a great thing. Financially I can survive, barely, on 3 days if needed. I'm just not sure I can survive mentally. I'm bored to death.

Lily knows by now that I'm not going to feed her no matter how much she whines. She can easily sneak in my room and jump on my bed without waking me up. She does it all the time when it's earlier in the morning. But for some reason she feels the need to wake me up around 3:30 each day so she can snuggle. She doesn't ever want anything other than to just curl up next to me. It's cute on days I have to work and get up soon anyways but not when I can sleep in

Worf just meowed until I picked her up and put her on my bed. I'm currently rubbing her tummy and she seems to like that

for beig insured. I kept my plan the way it was;they tried to get us to drop it down to a lesser one. The lesser one meant having to get referrals from the internist to go to any other Dr. I like the ability to just be able to make an appt. with anyone, any time.

New schedule came out.............When I get done with my 8 days straight I will have 5 days off . I only asked off for the weekend................I got off Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday then I work 1 day and then have a day off. I then work 3 and then begin vacation. Too much time off, lately.

Got my $150 gift card for my anniversary today . I also got a pin with the amount of years worked.

I didn't read anything regarding him other than the million titles on yahoo....why?!?!?! He hasn't even given himself a season off. If this were next year at this time I could understand maybe wanting to come back. But he really hasn't been off at all.
