Good morning “pretties”! How ahhh yah?
We have been pretty much all work and no play for the last couple of days. Busy at work, busy at home. I did stop to get nails done Monday. My theory of doing “the dip” instead of the French nails is working out well. I can go an extra week and get away with it. And the cost evens out a bit. Plus I had spent enough over time that I got $10 off this time. Mom and I go get our pedi’s tonight after work and I’m excited AND READY.
For the nail color I went with this color which I thought was good for August, a month that leads us closer to fall. Pretty happy with the dip. Our salon seemed to add more colors and I’m glad because before, I was not seeing many that I was interested in. I have to get them done short so I can type. I like them longer by a bit, but short is easier for me with all the hours I am on computer both here and at work. Short is also more sanitary. Too long seems “common” as my grandmother would call it. But I won’t call it that. We’ll blame on someone else, LOL LOL.
Had some problems at the first of the week from a technological standpoint. I could not access my files and had to map out a network drive. I had never done that. My computer keeps locking me out of the drive I need for some reason every time I reboot the thing. I finally was able to google how to map a drive and get myself access. I can’t believe I did it. lol Story of my life. I’m not sure why it keeps happening. So I try not to reboot but it gets slow slow if I don’t reboot. It’s almost like someone is on the screen at the same time and making it slower. Like I would type a word and it would show up a few seconds later. That kind of thing. I can’t imagine anyone else being on my screen with me though but in describing how slow it was, that is what it was like – like someone was dialing in remote on your screen. And it has that feeling of not wanting to do what you want it too and reacting slow. So I reboot when it gets slow like that and then it locks me out. Usually I get IT but they were out. My luck. But I was able to get it googled and figured out and get to my files so I could get to my weekly checklist screen. I guess since we are a smaller company we don’t have as good of a set up or something? Or things are just so complicated they are over our heads or something. I really have no idea. I’m not sure what the problem is but it’s happened 3 weeks in a row. lol. But I was able to get in temporarily –this time. I’m scared to reboot. But will eventually get to where I’ll have to when it gets slow like that. At least I was able to google it. Google is a dependable source. I use it several times a day. Nothing like going in early and not able to log on, lol.
Anyway, these earlier days bring a pretty sun rise in my rear view mirror. Hot scorching days though this week. And we have heat warnings.
I did it! I ate lasagna without getting it on my white shirt. We also had pasta last night too. I don’t even need to be eating pasta. Just call me Garfield I guess.
For Those that Could Use a Little Encouragement on People Relations
I think there might be some trolls (stalkers) out there that could find use for this. I created it JUST FOR YOU too, on Canva! Smile, it won’t hurt. I promise. What is that saying? “Kindess Never Killed Anyone”.
So…..Monday after I my nails were done, I ran in the Dollar Store to get a few things while I was there. I was shocked at how bare some of the shelves were. Now I did see some boxes laying around and maybe they just had a bad weekend but I kinda think it is because of the state of our situation here with the variants. People feel it coming. We went to Kroger and saw some of the same thing but not quite as bad.
I mean, there should be no reason that the craft supply shelf should be bare should there? lol. Geez. It could just be the store management not able to keep up with things. Or most probable – NO HELP to restock. It makes me want to dive in and help stock the shelves, lol. You know I love to organize things. LOL.
The HELP WANTED signs are everywhere. I’ve never seen anything like it. And everywhere we go we have to wait, wait, wait. Even at my own work – I mean – look, I fixed my own IT problem right? lol You can’t get help these days anywhere you go. We just have to be patient (which I don’t have a lot of). People have high expectations of me always and so I always have high expectations of everyone else too.
What I really don’t like is working hard to pay for the rest of the world to sit on their bottoms and watch Netflix. I don’t really understand why things are the way they are in our world. I think we should help people when they are down but I don’t think we fund their entire lifestyle while the rest of the world works. Where is everyone? Where are the nations workers? Did they fall in a hole? Are they scrolling endless videos on TicToc? <—-I have been doing this at night and just absolutely dying laughing. I had asked God for laughter. I needed it. Here’s a couple that made me chuckle. I shared them on my Instagram.
I would say that probably that is me and George…..lol
Meanwhile in Texas
Katy has started back to school. And having a bit of a hard time being away from this little cherub all week. She sent me this pic and said “count those arm rolls”. lol. He’s like the rest of his fam, we love to eat! He’s getting a bit of soft people food now.
Well, I better get ready and head to work. Tomorrow morning is video editing day so no blog. I should be back on Friday morning. We will be celebrating George’s birthday which is the 12th – for most of the rest of the week! That is how we roll. We are eating out a lot. And some excursions this weekend. So hopefully some good Nashville pics for you guys!
Friday I take Mom to the eye doc and so I have to leave work early.
ok, over and out ya’ll.
