Or should I say lemonade from lemons? I said before that I was hoping to get my latest top done on my weekend. Monday and tuesday are my usual days off. The end is in sight but nowhere close to being done. A week ago one of the guys in our department quit to go to school. Nice for him but that leaves us short handed again. The store manager is kind of slow in interviewing and getting the hiring done which doesn't help sense our new department manager has decided to step down and work only two days a week. Where does that leave me????? Picking up more hours at work than I wanted right now. I was just talking to one of the other girls in our area about how I was going to see about cutting a couple hours off when I find out that my absent manager is in Califorina and won't be back for my days off work. Would I mind holding off for my days off for the week? I wouldn't have minded the extra hours if it came with major overtime but my company is the scheduling wizard for keeping OT off the books. Before leaving work this afternoon I got a text message from my boss with next weeks schedule to be turned in. Lovely more hours for me. Why all the complaining you ask? I do have a job but I have had the same job for ten years now. I stand quite simply in one place for hours on end. My feet hurt soo much that I am amazed that I can get to the time clock to check out. I also now that the tendions at the back of my feet playing havoc with my every movement. Yes I know I should see a doctor but he would want me to take time off work which I can't afford. So I have one day off this week, tomorrow and I am really really close to getting the top done. I can sense an all nighter coming on. I haven't figured out a border for this quilt yet but I'm sure something will strike me tonight. So if your driving through Tacoma tonight and you see smoke rising in the south, not to worry just me burning up the sewing machine trying to finish my project!!!
