What a beautiful colorful pic. Not sure who the artist is but it’s beautiful in it’s colors. This was shared to me through a facebook group I believe.
Anyway I thought I’d hop on and say hello. Looks like George is going to be able to get the car on Friday. I guess they were just busy and didn’t get it confirmed til yesterday.
Roger still has the big D but not as bad. I believe I saw red blood in the stool. But he seems happy as can be and ate this morning almost all the food I fixed for him. He ate Fancy’s food over the weekend which I believe is the culprit. I knew better. It’s my fault. I should have stopped him but I let him have it. I think Fancy was eating his, so we let them switch. I knew better but didn’t want to have to get up to make them switch. Meal time is crazy. So we have dealt with that. The past two nights he has had to go in the middle of the night. George took him at midnight and I took him at 4 ish this morning as I was getting up anyway and he was wanting to go. Hopefully he will be better today. George is giving him cheese! And the carpet cleaner has been out several times. (Rolls eyes and wondering if we will ever be able to redo the floors?)
We received a call from one of George’s vendor friends who is in town and we will be going to dinner with him on Wednesday night. Thursday night is store night for the Spain weekend. And looking forward to vacation day on Friday.
That said I still have a lot of work to do – have to work extra to get the day off. As said yesterday- it’s not really ever PTO time b/c you are having to work those same hours on other days to get everything done on the other days of the week. lol Oh well. I’ve heard many people tell me through the years they just don’t bother to take it all. I never understood that before. But I guess it was too much of an effort and disrupted too much and wasn’t worth it. It is a strain to take it for sure. It has been stressful enough in itself just to figure out when there is a good time to take it. Turns out there is usually not a good time to take it. Most of what I do in a week is extremely time sensitive and being off a day is very noticeable. So I guess you just play pin the PTO form on the calendar and put a blind fold on and just pick a date. lol I’m sorry you have to humorize things sometime. It helps keep a good mood about it. So I’m pinning the PTO form on this Friday. No it’s not a good date, but I’ve delayed PTO numerous times and I’ve got to have it this week or we’ll have combustion. Now that I have figured out that no time is good, then I guess it never really matters – just GO? Although I do try to pick a date that doesn’t make others have to do my job. However, there are times when we will need several days in a row to travel somewhere. And I’m very thankful that we can go to Texas at Thanksgiving. I put my PTO time in for the Friday before Thanksgiving as we’ve booked a room Friday night in Hot Springs. So that gives me 4 days in a row of PTO time against weekend and holiday time. I’m not even sure I’ll get time for Christmas and may even have to work the weekends on top of not getting time off but we’ll see. I am not wanting to lose my time – I know it’s an adjustment. I’ll want to get paid for it if I’m not allowed to take it for sure. At least you could have a nice outfit and call it your PTO outfit. lol lol lol lol Anyway, we work hard all year and we love to be able to enjoy our PTO time. I’m still adjusting to the schedule and trying to figure out what works and what doesn’t and we’ll figure it out as time goes. I love the job though and as long as the hours pans out and averages out better over time, then it’ll work for me! IT IS getting better. But during the times of doing things I’ve not done before – it takes longer. I’ll get into the routine of what to do at quarter end and year end, and then it’ll average out b/c I can have things ready and prepare in advance, and all. It’s all good. Gotta go!
And that is all she wrote for today. Gotta go re-earn my time off. Gotta get it all done. Ya’ll be good. Off to get ready and head in early.
