Wow it’s been some serious time since I last posted, but all is well. I haven’t been feeling very “write-y” lately and I tend to be very sensitive when I receive any kind of negative feedback, so I tend to shy away from any confrontation regarding it/my blog/writing.
Today for lunch I ran to Petsmart to get kitty litter and kitty food. It is so freaking cold out there, but my cat needs to eat, so my hat and gloves shall prevail. Then I got gas and realized I’m about 400 miles over on my oil change. How does that happen? I look and look and I still have 1,000 miles to go and then BAM – I’m way over.
I’m still at my current job, still doing good work with all the students that come to me. I’m lucky to have a job in this economy, especially one that pays above minimum wage. 🙂
Back to work, just wanted to check in with y’all!
P.S. Supernatural is on tonight, new episode, so excited.
- Good things come to those who wait.
I don’t want to say anything bad about my place of employment because they might read this blog, but if they didn’t, I would probably go off on a tangent. That’s all. 🙂
Today for lunch, I ran over to Goodwill to try to find Halloween accessories for my kids. My son wants to be a pirate. I thought I could probably just get the extra stuff and he could just wear black. I found a cool sword, hook hand, earring, and coin pouch combo for $10 and then a skull-cap for $1. I also found my daughter a couple of pairs of pants since she seems to go through them at record speed. I still don’t know what she wants to be for Halloween. Soon she’ll be too old! Although that doesn’t seem to stop the neighborhood teens from knocking on my door looking for candy. They typically get the summer parade leftovers (Tootsie Rolls, suckers, etc.)
Then I stopped at Wendy’s. I know. That place gives me the heebie jeebies, but I had five minutes and needed something fast. Fast food, get it? It was gross but at least my stomach isn’t growling. I’ll have some leftovers ready for tomorrow thank goodness.
Back to work. I’m so excited! On the plus side, Supernatural is on tonight. Season 8, episode 2! 🙂
- Put one foot in front of the other and eventually you’ll get there.
Sometimes before I go on my longer lunch breaks, I plan out what I need to get done. Today’s list was: nap. In my car. In a sparsely occupied parking lot. My daughter had some minor gum/mouth surgery yesterday but it kept us up on and off all night, so I am just wiped. Add in a couple more episodes of Supernatural than I should’ve watched, and you’ve got a recipe for sloggishness (yes that is a word).
So nap was calling me today, but you know how the best laid plans go. That’s right. A rye. Like bread.
First, I ran into a fellow employee in the parking lot and we talked about work in general: the highs, but mostly the lows. Then I had to call my husband and mom, who were watching over my healing daughter today. Then I remembered I had a book to read for some Young Living training I signed up for. The message of the book is great, but it is a SLLOOOOWWW read. Very dry. Well by the time all those things were said and done, I only had about 20 minutes left. So I stopped at KFC and got a BBQ chicken sandwich, ate it, read some more, there you have it: one lunch break done.
Now at work for several more hours. Rock on!
- Time flies when you’re having fun. Make the most of it.
I make a mean salad.
I stopped by the grocery store to get a few groceries and thought, “Hey, I haven’t had lunch yet.” So I made up a kick butt salad from their deli. Although it’s dangerous, I sometimes react to the weird chemicals they have on the lettuce/greens, but what can I say? I’m a risk taker.
Since my last post, I have become obsessed with my new obsession, which is Supernatural. Google that. Or Jensen Ackles. Or Jared Padalecki. And you’ll understand immediately.
Finally, my last item of lunchtime enlightenment today is one of other drivers on the road. If you’re going to turn right, get into the righthand turn lane. Trust me, that’s what it’s there for.
That about sums it up!
- Be a risk taker. They have more fun.
- Learn how to drive.
