Things have Gone Awry..

My life is in shambles right now. That snag I work with wants management position and I refuse to work with her if she does become management. I have told the many managers if she gets management I will quit. Well I told this to Jeff tonight before I went in and he went hay wire basically on me. He didnt hit me but he started telling me I was lucky to have the job I have. Yes that is very true. But I refuse to work wit someone that cant see the screen to keep up running the food to me at the window and then keeping up herself. She doesnt do jack shit but stand around eating ice cream and smoking. Its one thing to have a smoke break but constantly.

Then other things have gone wrong. I am so tired lately. I have a wrist that hurts. I would love to blame it on typing but I havent been visiting as often as I was. I try every other day. I keep up a post but not always visiting. Just to let my friends know what I am up too... I was suppose to work till 3 AM tonight but it was dead so she sent me home early. I dont mind but I wish I would have known earlier I wouldnt have taken a half hour break. I think I jammed my wrist somehow Saturday night when I got a box of fries from the freezer. Those boxes are heavy and I usually can lift them but I think I grabbed it wrong some how.

I have been really weepy lately. I dont know why but I have. The smallest thing said I dont think I can handle I start to cry over. Just dont let Jeff read this part please.. LOL.. I miss my family and that is what set me off tonight when one of the cooks was picking on me. I was weepy before I left the house and held it in till Riley, ( Not his real Name)...

We are planning a trip to the local Zoo here on Thursday if a few people can make it. I will know more later today or Tuesday. I have Tuesday and Thursday off this week. Well I suppose. I need to get to bed here shortly. I will talk to you all later sometime. Hugs to most or all of you and handshakes to those of you that dont want hugs.. N....

UPDATE Most of you know what a McFlurry is right. Its an ice cream treat from McDonalds. Even if you dont eat them yourself you have more than probably heard of them ok. This snag I work with and wants management is afraid of the McFlurry machine. I see it as if she wants to make management she better get used to using the machine. I have made my share of messes and its fun really. You just clean yourself up and keep on going but she refuses to use it. I mean she wants me to make her an Oreo McFlurry before I leave because she is afraid of the machine.. LOL.... I dont know why but she is..

What the Girls did Yesterday...

Hi all Here are some photo's of the Home Schooling group did yesterday. They want to keep private so I never took photo's of the kids. But these are the animals they learned about yesterday. I broke my sleep time up where we could go. I have worked nine days straight and have a day off today now. I will go to bed after doing this post and making Jeff's lunch. But here are the photo's.

This first photo I was expecting Kora to freak out but she did rather well. I was the one that squeamish. I dont care for snakes all that much.. LOL...

Esp with her letting him sit on the floor like this photo here. Yikes..

This photo here is of a flying squirl but they really dont fly and he is in the Sanctuary because he ran into a window and doesnt have his balance to be out in the wild with his relatives.

This Owl was put in the Wild Life Sanctuary because his mother and father quit feeding him and he was found almost dead. So he was just a baby so he actually doesnt know how to live out in the wild. He has no physical problems as she put it but his mentally wouldnt make it. He doesnt know how to hunt for himself since he has been handled by people since he was a baby Owl..

My favorite part was when she got him to spread his wings. That was awsome. Just a quick tilt of her wrist and he thought he was going to fall so he put out his wings. Beautiful animal.

I am taking today off to spend with the girls and Jeff when he comes home tonight. I am just getting ready for bed. Need to make his lunch and then off to bed myself. I am exhausted. I was asked to work tonight but then when I got in tonight the manager that hired me told me to take my night off. She said I was going to get myself sick working so hard. But she appreciated my offer. Then I go back on Friday. But life is good here now.

School is going good with Kora. She is learning facts about what she is reading and doing well with it. She takes and runs with it and her spelling tests. She has been doing great. She got one wrong on her first one and a 100% on her second so we think we have finally found her strong point. Todays assignment is writing down facts adn then a story to go with her own facts she writes down. I will help her do this. I think she will have fun doing it. Anyway Bri's learning her name slowly. She likes when we take high lighters and let her trace over her name. She still doesnt want to do it on her own yet. But that is ok. she is just learning. Well I am off to bed. Catch up with you all later today sometime. N....

The Most I have worked in a Row in My Life..

Hi all. I have worked every day since last Tuesday. That makes eight days in a row tonight when I go in for my regular scheduled night. I have been called in on all my days off and I have said yes. But now I am feeling wore out. I have to work tonight and then tomorrow and have Thursday off. I am exhausted from all this work. Jeff thinks its easy working my job. I wish he could try it plus taking care of the house. I was in the process of cleaning house yesterday when I got called in and I had to wait till today to finish my cleaning.

Dont think I am complaining but it takes alot out of me. My hands and wrists hurt from dealing with the fryer. I would love to call in tonight and just take a break and just have some family time. My girls miss me but I dont feel that I can do that right now. I just dont want to burn out. We are missing one of our over night managers because we think he got another job some place else and just hasnt told McDonalds yet. And then we have one girl that got fired. She was pregnant and had Herniated Disks or something like that and she could only work a few nights a week and half the time she would call in when she was scheduled so we let her go.

But nine days in a row with out a day off. My choice. Just look at my next paycheck.. Yayyy.. We could still use the money. I just paid a huge utility bill yesterday. But at least its caught up before winter gets here. Jeff has it figured we should be caught up by the end of next month finally. Yayyy...

Well I need to go finish laundry and do a load with my work clothes in it or I wont have any work clothes tonight. I am working from 9 PM to 4 AM.. Talk to you all tomorrow sometime..

Last Night...

Hi all. I know I know more about work.. LOL...

We had a horrid time last night. One of the cooks got sent home because he went off on his girlfriend our over night manager. He was calling her every dirty name in the book and such. I felt so bad for her and then the one lady I dont get along with went home early and then we had to keep one of our closers till 3 AM. It wasnt a pretty sight to see last night. Yikes.. Then one girl requested last night off at the last minute so we were 3 people short and we got our job done but it took a while really.

I dont see how they get a way with it. The one girl I have mentioned before that is pregnant and has back problems got fired finally. She never called in the other night and they just said enough.. I dont understand why they didnt fire her before now but hey its none of my business really. But I worked from 8 PM last night till 5 AM this morning. I kept up too. I didnt do the grill but put the sandwiches together and pushed them down to the end of the line. I was impressed with my abilities yet.

I just wish we could find reliable people. Tonight they have this deal going that every time the Green Bay Packers Score we give out a free Soda.. I am sure glad I am not working this shift.. Yikes.. Busy. Can we say Busy at work tonight.. Yikes...

I have been just tired the last two days. I wondered if I am coming down with a cold and just dont know it yet. I mean the start of one. Tired and sore and just wanting to sleep. I cant sleep because who is going to stay up with the girls. Jeff got up wtih them this morning and fed them breakfast for me and then when I got up I went and got lunch. I got a free meal for myself from last night at work and then bought the rest some food. It helps having discount.

Life is good here otherwise. The girls are playing outside with some neighbor kids but they have no respect for other adults. I try to tolerate them but its hard sometimes. A few days ago one of the little girls told me she needed a dollar well I turned around and told her to go ask her mother because I wasnt a bank. Well she walked away but a few minutes later she came back and asked how much money I had and I told her it was none of her damned business how much money I had. But it wasnt. Kids... My two would never ask some one that question. My two have more respect for other people than most kids do.

Ok well gotta run for now. talk to you all soon. I will make rounds tomorrow but here is a post at least.. LOL...

This Last Saturday Night.

I was so happy with myself this last Saturday night at work.

A co workers mother had to go to the hospital so he couldnt come in and another worker came in but she only works in the evenings till close so she isnt used to our over nights. But anyway she was suppose to keep up with the fryer and I was doing the Burger meat. Well for some dang reason she couldnt keep up with the Fryer. Well another lady I work with suggested this one goes up front and does the French Fries so the manager looks at me asks if I think I can keep up.

Well I did better than that really. It was busy and I had trays full all the time. I was so proud of myself and I impressed the manager. I told Jeff what I did and he said it would have taken most people a year or more to be able to keep up like that. I am so proud of my achievements. But then at about 3:45 I was asked to come Present the food and collect for the front people and the fill in was doing my dishes but then I was asked to go wash the French Fry Station and then the fill in went up front and clocked out on me. I didnt know where I was suppose to be and I finally broke.

I cried. I was so fustrated. The manager told me to just go home and they would finish my dishes and I told her NO. She looks at me and says HUH??? I said NO. I have to learn how to do this just need to know where you want me.. She apologized up and down and then yelled at the one lady for yelling at me all night. Long story there really.

I am not using names for that purpose. You just never know when they will look things up and find my blog. Anyway that is my most and biggest achievement for work lately. Talk to you all soon. I made rounds today and will make them tomorrow again before work. I have today off since I worked last night.

Our Park Day...

Here are some photo's of the girls and daddy.. and just some photo's..

Last but not least my work for a dear friend of mine in blogland..

This last photo may need some explaining. I made a bonnet to go with the sweater. I think its adorable. I cant figure out the booties that go with the sweater but I think the bonnet and sweater do it justice.. You will notice I used the same colors I used for the afghan.. I think its beautiful.

I Think It Was Dream..

Hi all. Jeff and I wont be going on our vacation. We are even thinking about not going to Chicago this year. I have to e-mail Candy yet about that one.. We rushed into it and we just found out that Jeff's grandmother just had hip surgery. She fell and broke her hip and isnt up to company right now. We understand totally.

I was so looking forward to going but hey there is always next year if she is still around. But the girls are going to go spend some time with his mother and then in July we are thinking about letting my mom take them for a week. I dont know about that one. We will have to more than likely bring them up there and then go get them too. That is a lot of money and gas for us. I was hoping my parents could bring them home because its a ways to drive to get them from my mom's house.

Oh well we will figure something out when the time comes. But the girls are excited about going to stay with grandma A and grandma S... We will let them have them from a Saturday to Saturday next month. We will bring them to his mothers house and then come home and then his mother will bring them home the following weekend. That is how it should be really. I dont mean to have to do all the driving.

Anyway I dont have a clue when we are taking a vacation. Jeff said something about next year taking a cruise but its more a dream than anything right now.. Just dreaming on getting out and going some place. I am almost done with Helene's suprise and I need to see if she wants me to post that here or have her recieve it before she see's it on the internet..

I am hoping she likes it. I know I do and I am so proud of my work. I need to finish it up though. Its so hard not to say what it is.. But I dont want to ruin the suprise just quite yet..

One of the managers at work last night her daughter just had a baby in July and she brought her in and she was so cute. I love looking and holding but glad I can give them back now. I love my two but I am glad we are done with the diapers.. LOL.. Well I suppose I need to go start dinner. Talk to you all Monday..

Hurricane Survival List.. Thanks to my Parents..

I thought this was funny. I mean come on how many people have sense of humor lately. Laugh a little. It does one justice... LOL... I am in a good mood lately.. I know two posts in one day come on.. But there are hours between the two...

Toilet Paper.........................................check

Bud Light.............................................check

Keystone Ice........................................check


Red Dog...............................................check

Misc. other bottles of alcohol......................check

Piece of plywood to float your old lady and booze on ....... Check

What I have been up Too

Hey all you know I am making a dear blog friend a baby afghan. Well the blanket is done but I am making a suprise to go in with the baby afghan since I have left over yarn for the suprise. My first attempt at making one so I am hoping it turns out.. LOL.. Silly me. I am not tired. I just got home about 15 minutes ago. Give me an hour and I will be awake. I dont have to work tonight so its ok.

I have to work all weekend though. If I have one complaint about this job its working every weekend. They should be switching us around every weekend since there are enough of us to do so. One weekend a month we should have off. LOL... But hey I am enjoying my hours.

The girls are doing great. Kora finally got her curriculum book I wanted to get her and she is grasping what a noun is pretty fast. We worked on Proper Nouns today. then she gets into the harder math later on. I am still working on her flash cards math being wrote down in a special notebook for her and then we write down her spelling words she is learning in her spelling area. She writes them down three times for me and then next week I will do a small spelling test with her for fun. Just to see what she remembers. I know I used to enjoy spelling tests. It just gives her some idea what she knows exactly.

Brianna is writing her name but we have to write it down with a highlighter first and have her copy it. but she enjoys doing it. She feels like a big girl with Kora when we let her do it. She can do it on her own but just for practice I make her copy my letters. She is growing up so fast. She was singing her ABC's to me tonight before I left. Sweet. I miss them both so much.

But hey its worth haveing the extra paycheck coming in. Boy is it getting chilly here. I have to take the pool down tomorrow. No more water for us this year. I told the girls if it warms back up we will just play with the hose but otherwise I am taking the pool down. Well I suppose. I need to go get ready for bed and then tomorrow do some cleaning. The litter box needs changing and the girls need baths, and then I need to sweep and mop and laundry.. Well catch you all later. N...

Tired but Doing Great..

Hi there. You all know the job is going well. I have worked my Ass off lately. I have been called into work two days when I was suppose to and of course I took the hours.. But now a girl that just started late last month got herself fired last night. She is pregnant and has a bad back and cant do much.

She said she had all this experience when they hired her and then when doing the job had none.. Yikes... I even admitted to the guy that hired me I dont care for the headsets but he wanted to hire me anyway and they have found my favorite spots. I can do fries rather quickly now and the back line making the burgers.

Saturday night I was presenting the food to the customers and this one car came through. I think it was the same kids that I mentioned before about the one saying I was sleeping with his father I had no idea who the damned kid was.. p

Well anyway I think this same car came through on Saturday and they ordered and the drive asked for some BBQ sauce and when I opened up the window to had out the sauce the kid in the back seat threw a rock at my glasses. He was aiming at my lenses. Thankfully I moved out of instinct. Well the manager saw it and so did the car behind him but no one was fast enough to get there liscense plate number. Damned kids... I was so mad I was ready to jump through the window and strangle each and everyone of them.

Then I worked last night when I was suppose to have last night off. I am seeing I am the only reliable one there except for the the people that have been there for a year or more.. I have been doing this job for almost two months and I havent called in once.

Anyway I have been up for half an hour and need to go get something to eat. I will catch you all later. Have a great day and I am going to enjoy my day off unless they call me in tonight. I can always tell them no but right now we could use the money and I might as well work if they are willing to let me. N...

I know I have been slacking

Ok my friends. I know I posted about us playing in the water this last weekend. It was hot and humid and just horrid but beautiful in the water. Its cold today but its suppose to go back up to the upper 70's for the next ten days after the rain stops tomorrow.

I am so looking forward to getting out. My hours are being cut by a day for winter but hey I was expecting it. It was dead last night. What else can you do when you have a job like mine but hey at least its a job right. It still pays the bills.

Jeff and I have no idea what we are doing. He has decided on something but I have to get in contact with two blogging friends and see whats up in there neck of the woods first. Candy Minx and Grizzly Mama for those are the two I am talking about.

Jeff wants to take a quick trip out to see his Grandmother in PA. I cant remember how to spell the dang state and I went to public schools all my life.. LOL.. See they arent the best. i am not trying to promote home schooling either but what do these small misgivings give us as adults when I dont need to know how to spell that state for my job...

Anyway I am done and gone for today. I need to have Kora read to me and then we are about to have dinner when Jeff comes home. Talk to you all soon. N...

Hi World...

Hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day Weekend. We enjoyed ours really. We had fun with the family that came over. The kids had fun. They went swimming and then they all came in and we sat around and talked for hours. The kids played games. The kids pulled out Stay Alive, then the Bubble Game Kora got for X-mas. Then they played Twister before Nina and Rowan went home. Wish I would have gotten some photo's of them playing Twister. That was funny.

Then yesterday we went to the park. I even played in the water with the girls and so did Jeff a bit. Not much but enough to make them happy. It was just a relax and be a family day.

Me working on a puzzle book (word Search).... My favorites.

Last but not least.. Miss S.. LOL...

Enjoy my friends. I have cleaning to do before making my rounds. We started school today here at home. Kora is working on last years math cards written down in a notebook and Bri's learning how to make her letters to her name..

BoldUpdateJust checking my bold and seeing why this wont post my edited page when I want to edit my post for some reason. It saves it as a draft but it wont save what else I have put at the bottom of the damned post. Lets see if this works this time. If not I am lost with it for the time being.
