Tuesday DT

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hi all!

Well....since I finished yesterday's DT, I thought it only right to begin today's!!!!

It is freezing rain here.....I hate it! I am going to go into work a little bit later than normal. I'd stay home but I need to go today. I was away yesterday and have a ton of work to do. There is payroll and we have 3 employees on shortterm disability. I need to get their paperwork submitted. SO....I am going to patiently wait until the roads are safe to drive on and go to work later than normal.

I hope everyone has a great day here today!

Wishing you all a "happy and healthy" day. It's been a rough time for many here and hopefully we'll all overcome our bumps and move on to bigger and brighter days ahead.

Yesterday was so warm, it was nice. Now its windy and its not too bad, but at least I can have the windows open for fresh air. Today I have to go and pay the bills and return a book I got in the mail that I dont want.
Last night we went to Sam's and I found kitty litter there - 44lbs for only $4.88, which is a great deal because I normally buy the same litter from Walmart - 20lbs for $6.50! We also bought other stuff, such as laundry detergent and some meat and chicken, which will last us a couple of months. I love Sam's!
Went out and had mexican for dinner last night, had a great pollo loco - love that stuff!

I hope everyone has a great day!

We get to buck hay today. 5 tons being delivered for my hay burners out back. I have to go and take Geronimo to his new digs, and then I just have a lot of work to do. It was supposed to be a dry 6 days, but it is raining again, so cleaning up the trees down by the creek that were pushed over when it overflowed will have to wait.

Oh, and I got my insurance check for the damaged shipping goods this morning- special delivery courier express! They even sweetened the pot and threw in an extra $500.00 for all the "trouble"

Oh no Hissy....NOT more rain!!!!!!! (It's raining here too.....)

I'm glad you got your check from the insurance!!!!! Yay!~

Kellye, what's pollo loco made of???? Sounds interesting. There's a Mexican restaurant here in town. I always have the same....Chicken Quesedillas & rice. Maybe one day I'll be brave and order something different (oh...sometime I splurge and have a Taco salad)

pollo loco is grilled chicken in cheese sauce. Its so delish! It usually comes with your choice of rice or beans, but I dont have either - I have the guacamole salad that comes with it.
I always have that every time I go there, the waiters know it and I dont need the menu.

Well last night was fun!

The winds started last night as I was watching Joe Millionaire, and Nakita was running around like a herd of elephants. Then the power went out. I'm not use to being in a house, I've always lived in a condo.So power outages were never a problem.

So last night we were scrambling to find the flashlight in the dark. Meanwhile, Nakita was having fun racing around like a mad cat at atomic speeds. We found the flashlight, batteries were dead!

So then I tried looking for candles. Found the candles, no matches. Ugh!! Plus, our smoke detectors were beeping because they were losing power(they are hooked up to electrical power). At this point, Nakita was everywhere. Even now, she's too hyper! She is totally sensing the storm winds.

So I totally missed Joe Millionaire!!

Rob will be going to Denver Colorado on business. I would love to go with him, but at least he can rack up some more airmiles and maybe we'll have enough for a free ticket next time!!!!

That's my night in a nutshell! Hope tonight is better.

All right, Hissy!!! When we get to Cozumel, you're buying!

Got up early and wrestled Pearl into her harness. She had no clue, where she was going - hopped right into the truck, happy as a pig in slop. She wanted to lick my ear, all the way, to the clinic. Having one's ear licked, while driving, is very distracting. She, also, kept putting her paw on my arm, when I tried to shift. I suppose that she's going to want driving lessons.

Ike wasn't happy. He's used to being fed, when Bill gets up and, today, he had to wait until I got home, from dropping off Pearl. We can pick her up, between 5 and 6, today. Hope she comes through OK. I lost a cat, years ago, due to an anesthesia reaction. I'll call, around noon, to check on her.

Have a good one.

Well, today has not gotten off to a good start for me. I had another interview this morning and it went OK, but not great. I think my interview on Saturday went a lot better. I'm calling the staffing lady back today to find out if I got the position that I interviewed for on Saturday. I'm gonna keep my fingers crossed!! Its for a nice law firm and they would pay about $1 more than this position that I interviewed for today. So, hopefully I am what they are looking for.

I think that I am going to put in my 2 weeks notice sometime this week. Its too hard trying to schedule interviews around having to work and everything. Then I just end up having to use my sick days or having to lie, which I don't like to do.

I hope everyone is having a better day than me.

Now, I'm off to do my homework.

Spooky!!!!! So good to 'see' you!! (I haven't seen a post from you in a while, although maybe I've missed some???)

I don't know what to say about giving your notice....yes, it would free up some interview time for you. I guess only you really know if it's the right thing to do and if you can risk the financial side of it. Good luck in finding something quick!!!!!!!

Hope your day turns into a brighter day!!!!!

Well I'm back. Yesterday was so busy at work I didn't have time to check in and see how everyone's doing. I have a volunteer orientation today for Cat Welfare tonight. I'm really excited! I bought some beautiful vintage jewlery on Yahoo. I'm going to start collecting cameos. I went home last weekend to visit my Dad. He has not been feeling well. He's been in and out of the hospital lately. I've been busy on working on the cat illustrations. I will have to go out and buy some more paint this weekend. I got a pleasant surprise in the mail last night! It was a $50.00 rebate check. I know just what I'm going to do with it!

I just got back from paying the bills and walking around town and having lunch at the australian cafe in town. I checked out their twisties - a little bag is $2.50!!! Yikes!

Saw a man getting arrested and his jeep being searched by cops. It must be embarrassing for him to be treated like that on a very public road.

Oh I forgot to add..Someone egged my car on Sunday night. I don't know who would do such a thing. It's not the first time someone has messed with my car. Someone shot my license plate with a shot gun and ruined it! If I find out who it is I'm gonna @#%^$#@ those @#$%!

Just called the clinic. Pearl came off of the table, 10 minutes ago and is doing fine. She can come home, at 5:00.

Pearl is home and feeling frisky. She scarfed up a cup of food, first thing. We're keeping her in a crate, for a few days. She doesn't need to be romping with Rowdy and Ike. The only sign that she's showing is an inability to jump onto the couch.
