Yeah...that's how I've been feeling lately. So much has been going on, and at the same time, I haven't felt like writing here. I dunno--with working 6 days a week, it's like I have no time for anything. But I did go to my niece's graduation last week--had to drive down near Philadelphia to go (she lives around here, but since she graduated from a cyber school, that's where they had it)...and got lost on the way (only my niece and I did--we took two cars), and my sister realized she forgot the tickets about an hour into the trip and turned back to get them (turns out she didn't have to). Joey quit his job, since they decided to change his hours to something we couldn't work around (and didn't tell him until after all the BS he went through). That's really about all that's been going on here...well, that and work, work, and more work. Oh yeah, and I turned 30 the other day. I'll try later to post pics of me dressed up...lmao.
til next time...=)

Okay...since most people who read this are either lurking or think I stopped writing...I've just had a lot going on. What, you ask? Well.....
To start, Joey got a job! He starts tomorrow, as a cook at a drug rehab facility. The pay is great, and the benefits...well, it's a privately owned facility run by the state. So he gets state benefits, which are AWESOME. It's Monday through Friday, day shift. And every other weekend. So that's cool. And the hours don't conflict with my hours, so that's even better. It's about damn time something good happened to us.
Which brings me to my next thing--my job might be gone within a year, maybe less. Thing is, the wireless phone company we have a contract through merged with another wireless phone company, which also merged with a landline phone company, who has 411 operators who are at this moment twiddling their thumbs with nothing to do. And the contract runs out in February of next year. So instead of subcontracting the 411 out, they're going to have their own 411 operators do the job. And we're out of one. What makes this worse (I know--how can it get any worse than that) is we operators are on a 3-year temporary contract, after which my company has the option of (a)hiring us permanently, (b)extending our contract, or (c)ending our contract...basically letting us go. A few weeks ago, some people hit their 3-year mark...and the next day were promptly told they no longer had a job. So that leaves me wondering...
But in the meantime, I've received a little more responsibility. I do supervisor work part of the day, sometimes all day. It's not bad--I like the change of pace.
til next time...=)
