loveofgreys: (ears up)
Very strange getting up and not having to go to work today. Time to walk the dogs, then start my first week not working.
loveofgreys: (bang head computer)
Well, it finally happened. My boss and I reached a point of no return today, and I am now jobless. He sent me home, because he is crazy.

I have mixed feelings, but it probably is just a matter of time before the business folds anyway. so maybe he did me a favor.

The only real bad thing is leaving my office buddy in such a mess. Of course, he should have thought of that. I told him he was doing a major disservice to her.

Now, time to get ready to go.

Load the birds up with food for a couple of days, and take off.
loveofgreys: (motorhometrees)
Well, we are down to only two regular people at work this week.

My office buddy and I. The person I have had so much trouble with lately is gone because a family emergency. Sucks to be her right now.

Her mother-in-law is on life support and her son is expelled from school since she left on the emergency.

Also, I am maxed out on my hours for SS right now, so I can not work any extra. The first year of SS I can only earn so much per month. Next year I can only earn so much annually, so I would be more flexible.

So, we are still going on our road trip later today after I get home.

Off today

I am off today and working on Thursday so my office buddy can go out of town. She deserves it, she works hard. Because of SS I have to take a day off, I am borderline making over the limit. Also, have to carry over some hours because of the way paydays fall in August. I refuse to pay anything back. The first year, I can only make so much per month. Next year, only so much annually.

Off to Destin today. Dog cookies, and paint.
loveofgreys: (bang head computer)
Very 'chilly' at work today. The person who went off on me last week and I were basically the only ones there. I bet no more than 10 words were spoken. Who wants to work in that environment? Not me.

I have a headache.
loveofgreys: (Default)
We plan on driving up to a small lake at the Florida/Alabama border and checking out the campground. It is only about 20 miles from here. Might try it in a week or two.

This week is all turned around. My job share pard is going to be gone the last part of the week.

If this week does not get better, I think I will quit. I am tired of the drama, and i can not see them staying open indefinitely.

We will see.
loveofgreys: (Sucks)
Melt down at work.

This job is not going to last much longer I am afraid.

So far, I have done a few loads of laundry, cleaned birds, walked dogs, and now am starting to clean the house.
loveofgreys: (bang head computer)
My hours have been cut. I am only working 4 hours on Wednesday's now. Kind of a forced voluntary thing. If I said no, I don't have to have them cut, but I really don't need to work them. Work is so slow right now, I can not see that office staying open forever unless the building industry picks up soon.

Road trip over to the bay next week.

Almost time to walk the dogs.

Hours cut

My boss, in his infinite wisdom has decided to cut hours since it is so slow. I don't see this business continuing forever unless the building industry makes a big change, and soon.

I am only going to work about 2 1/2 days a week instead of 3. Ok with me. I always need the money, but I like being off better.
loveofgreys: (bang head computer)
No email? What's up with that? G mail must be down.

I work today, tomorrow I am going to Sam's club for our semi monthly trip, then I will have to work part of Friday.

I am glad my office mate is coming back next week.

Lucky for me it has been slow.

I have to do the payroll this week. I have not done it in a while.

Monday

It will be a nasty week. My office mate is off this week, so I will have her work to do. She does it for me, so I am ok with it, but now I have to put up with the "bitchy one" all by myself. I hope she is over it.

Whew, when she is in a mood, no one can stand her.

I wish it got light earlier, I want to walk the dogs and get going.
loveofgreys: (bang head computer)
I had planned on taking today off, but I hate to give up the money. No real reason to stay home since we got home early.
loveofgreys: (motorhometrees)
Work went well today. I am glad to be back after the crappy trip to Virginia.

I can't believe I agreed to another camping trip, but it is only about 45 miles over to the Bay by Destin for a couple of days.

June 1-4. (We never go on a long holiday weekend, too many kids)

Well, a short trip will be fun.
loveofgreys: (Default)
Back to work today. Hope I survive!!!
loveofgreys: (Birdbath)
Vacuumed, cleaned baths, walked dogs. Back to work tomorrow.

I never thought I would say this, but I am ready to go back.
loveofgreys: (Default)
Going to Sam's club for all the stuff we get from there, including steaks.

I am ready to get out of the house.

Back to work Monday, I am ready, (I think)

Work

Made it to work. I did not have time to read LJ from home this am. Too busy messing around with the new Ipod.

Today I am going to the library and hope I can find some interesting books on CDs. We are so backwards here. Most audio books are still on tape.
loveofgreys: (motorhometrees)
Work has been very slow. Yesterday I did not have enough to do.

The Social Security person, Angela, called me yesterday. She got my paperwork and my on line application, and it was all fine she said. She just had a couple of questions, like:

Why I had a few years with no income at all. (We were full-timing at the time and traveling around the country)

My SS starts in July. I can only earn so much money this year. My gross per month is already too high, so it is a good thing we are taking about 6 weeks off.

I did not think this year would matter since it doesn't start until July, but it does.

Working part time should work out about right money wise.

Oh, road trip this week-end I think. Going over to East Bank Campground on Lake Seminole, just across the Georgia state line. We park right on the lake.

It is a Corps of Engineer park so our Golden Age Passport works there. Half price on the campground, $8 per night. A good deal and only about 100 miles from here.

Mdh can fish with a Florida license there. (I don't like to fish)

We can try out the new air mattress. I hope it works.
loveofgreys: (Me)
Today I decided that I am going to keep working, even when SS kicks in. I am not ready to give up the income, and SS will be a nice raise.

I also need to get out of the house a few days a week. So; today that is what I decided.

I can still quit later if I want to. My office mate is glad.

Now, what can I spend this money on? Oh, that's right, I don't have any money.
loveofgreys: (bitch-burn)
What a crappy day.

Had a fight with the world's most stupid truck driver who drives for us!!

Trying to straighten out the paperwork in the truck. He had stuff in there from 4 years ago, stuff was expired, etc etc.

Now he is mad for who knows what reason. Probably I pissed him off, but I don't care. He is too stupid to have a license IMHO.

Enough rant for now. I am glad this day is over.

[livejournal.com profile] kjaz I saw Riches finally. I think I am going to like this show. Something different and interesting.
