Been MIA!!

Tuesday, August 18, 2009

So, yes, I have been MIA for awhile, a lot has been going on, here on the homefront, which is making it very difficult to get anything done! My computer has been down also, which is more frustrating for me, because I couldn't get any of the info I needed, for some very important business transactions!! I thought I had the problem solved, and was wable to be on the computer 1 day, and then bam!! my computer was crap again!! Just got it back a few hours agao, so hopefully, things will be alright now.

My part-time job, is starting to feel the effects of the economy, we all wondered when it would happen for us in the healthcare field, and it happened last Friday, at a mandatory meeting, we are losing 4% of our pay, starting in a few weeks, so now, I have to find a part-time job, to help my part-time job, to help my part-time candle business, sounds very confusing doesn't it?? It very difficult to say!! 4% doesn't sound like a lot, but it is, I will be losing a dollar and some change, but each week, it all adds up, and when the paychack arrives, it will be a big wake-up call to all of us!! With medicaid and medicare not going to pay for certain services, like oxygen, transportation, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and a few more things, the nursing homes will have to start paying for the services! Which really sucks!

I guess, I should I should be really thankful that I have a job, because sooooo many don't right now, and I am very thankful believe me!! Work for hubby has been super slow this summer, normally he is brings home some very nice checks, and this summer, they have been steady checks, just not the ones he or I like!! Between candle supplies, and the Harley Davidson stores, they are probably wondering where we are at!! lol

Well, I have to finish some things before bed, I have to work in the morning, and it will be a long one tomarrow, I have more orders to get ready, and have to work on my samples for OOTB for September, and do a candle basket for a charity event for next weekend. So, I will talk to you all in a few days, if not sooner, as long as the computer cooperates!!



Been Busy!!

Saturday, August 1, 2009

The last few weeks I have been busy with work and spending time with my son, since he has been here visiting, I will get to see him this next weekend and other family whenI go back to Indiana for a family reunion! YESSSSS! the dreaded family reunion's! lol...Wouldn't be so bad if my cousins who are around my age would be there, but mostly, its just gonna be the older generation, and my brother and his wife and daughter, and my sister & her husband and their 3 kids!! YIPPIE!!! Don't figure they would mind if we brought a cooler of beer to get through the day?? (not hardly, they are all RELIGIOUS!!, guess I'll stick with my diet coke!)

And the past few weeks also, I have been busy getting all my samples ready for the Out of the Box Sampler, and Michelle has been having a contest for July, and that has made me very busy! I'm in no way complaining, I'd rather be making candles, then working at the nursing home, its just right now, the nursing home pays a little bit better! lol Isn't that the way it always works?? The stuff you would rather be doing is so far out of reach, and the stuff the you really wish you weren't doing is the only thing thats is reach! dang it all to ####!!!

So we were planning on having a little get together with friends for Goof's birthday, (which the little fart had the nerve to turn 17 TODAY!! OMG!!), but he decided he didn't really want a party, he just wanted us to take him out to eat, which I was cool with that idea too, maybe go bowling, I'd like to go to the Cheesecake Factory, of course not to eat, but to get cheesecake!! They have the Turtle Cheesecake which is my favorite, I always wish I had enough money to buy the whole damn thing, but it would be gone in less than a day, I would rather eat that than regular food!! I KNOW!!! i'm a pig when it comes to cheesecake!

So I think I told you about my 20 year class reunion coming up in September?? (yeah, i'm talking about eating a whole thing of freaking turtle cheesecake!), I'm getting a little excited, not to much though, its been almost 20 years since I have seen some of them, I hope we all don't have expectations that we all look the same as we did in high school, if thats the case, I'm about 50lbs heavier!! thats bad, maybe it would have looked so bad wrote down, if I had stated 50 in 40 years!! lmao!

Oh well, we are waiting for goof to take a shower, so we can go eat, (he's texting his woman!) the only time I have had my phone in my hand, is when I have been at work, he normally gives it back, AFTER the battery is about dead!! I'll try to take pictures tonite, the word be TRY!! he's a booger about getting his picture taken, not a booger, but a real pain in the rear, he ALWAYS does something stupid to ruin a perfectly good picture, if he pulls that crap, I'll post all pictures to show you all what I go through!! lol

Well, I'm off and running to get his butt in gear!! Have a good weekend!!
