Today's Stress

If today is any indication of what the days are going to be like till the boss gets back, I just may have to cream someone. The ast mgr is trying to assert her authority while the mgr is on vacation and she is going about it the wrong way. She has some idea that we don't know our jobs and is proceeding to tell us what is to be done and how it is done. Of the four of us that is there right now she is the one who has been there the least amount of time. Yes she was hired as an asst mgr. but she doens't know how to do a lot of things. When she and I close together, I end up helping her with counting the money and finding where the errors are. I am NOT the one who is in charge and she should know what to do. I have never trained to be anything but a cashier at the store. I do have knowledge of accounting things and have been a shift leader where I counted more money than we get at the store. But if you say you have been a mgr or an asst mgr you should have a better knowledge than this lady at what is going on and how to manage people. All I am going to do is what I know to do and try and get through until the mgr gets back on Thursday, April 30. Atleast I don't have to work with the ast mgr a full shift until the mgr gets back.

Time Together

Well, I fully meant to get a little bit more done here by now. Since I was up til almost 4 am sorting clothes and then putting the ones that were clean away, I took a long nap after hubby and I had breakfast at IHOP. Since it is just the two of us and because of the way we work(when he is at home I'm at work and ditto), we try to take advantage of time that we can spend together. Hopefully, within the next 5 years we will be able to spend more time together. Vern should be retiring for good(he has retired from civil service) within the next 5 years and at that time we will decide if we want to stay living here in Belton or move. We both would like to start our retirement years somewhere else and have decided that if we do move it will be to Galveston. I know with the recent threats of hurricanes that might not be a good choice but it is where we would like to go. If not there, then possibly somewhere in the Austin area.

I have almost finished working on the items for my big project and will be able to start a couple of small projects this week-end. I need to plan the things that I am going to make for Christmas gifts and those things that I will be selling in our towns October Market Day Sale. I also will be making things for several charities.

New Beginnings

This is a new beginning for me so please be patient. I will be adding blogs that I visit, pattern sites to visit, things that I have made, pics of things special to me, and whatever else that I can think of.

I want to say a big thank you to AK for helping me to understand that setting this up is easy and that changing it would be easy if I wanted to.

This will be a place that I come to to let off steam about things that are going on in my life and a place to show off the things that interest me.

Keep coming back as I hope to add atleast something each day.
