I don't know how many of you live near washington state, or if you remember that Mt. St. Helens blew it's top today, 30 years ago. When they first started talking about the mountain erupting I kept telling everyone it would do so on my 21st birthday. It was the only exciting thing I could think of that would be happening then. Back in the day you could go out drinking the night before your 21st birthday and not get into trouble, so when the mountain blew the next morning, I was sound asleep.…Continue
You know I've often wondered how it is that so many of you can get these quilts done. Bing bang boom and you're posting pictures of two three quilts at a time. The answer has finally come to me this evening. You don't live with my herd!!!!!! I have the BF, the lovable wonderful tollerant man that he is, has limits. Doesn't give a wit about quilting. Example, He thought that my fan quilt was going to pieced together to look like the front of Charlie Brown's shirt. You see, you know what I am…Continue
Hi to everyone,
Just wanted to post an update. I was working on the BF's daughters quilt and finally got it finished and sent off to his daughter. She loves the quilt. At least she said she did. I got the text message anyway. Ok kids today just aren't into talking on the phone. So my stupid question is what does "mmk" mean in a test message???? I realize I am behind the times on all this but I am just curious.
I just may stay on vacation. I found out that I am suppose to work, not my usual shift of early morning, run on auto pilot and not think about how awful this job is, but three night shifts for the person that they were going to borrow to fill in. Lets do the math: I won't work on Wednesday which would be my monday so I would have to use a vacation day just to keep my hours for the week. that leaves three days vacation time IF I use the one day of vacation, and I don't want to because I want…Continue
It wasn't even 8 hours into my first day of vacation and I get the call. Some one didn't show up for work. Turns out the person they had to borrow went to work at their store because of a family emergency there and never bothered to call our store. I just got the call from my manager that my replacement can't make it this week. I should have gone to Bora Bora, they would have had a hard time getting me back even after my vacation!!!!
For those of you lost in translation: See below…Continue
Ok so my day didn't start out so great. Got up and made it to work on auto pilot just as I always do. Checked in collected stock for my little box on the corner fuel station. Arrived at box and unlocked door admiring the fact that I am no longer going to work in the dark. Enter said box and forgot to turn the alarm off. Now there is an eye opener for you. WHY, and I repeat Why would security put the alarm siren on the inside of the building especially in a 15 by 20 foot room. Do you have any…Continue
