Okay, so Bob has a childhood friend in Paintsville, Ky who owns her own recording studio and she wants me to come and sing for her. Apparently Bobby told her that I could sing and now she wants to hear me. I think it is absolutely fabulous. I have always wanted to sing. I remember singing into the vacuum handle when I was younger. I could sing every song on the radio by the time I was 12 years old. I love to sing. I can so see myself on stage in front of thousands of people and singing something from the heart. I really love music like Norah Jones or KT Tunstall. Maybe a little Joss Stone or of course Stevie Nicks. I can see it in my head, like it's supposed to happen. Maybe it is?
When I told Emma about all of this she freaked out. You see Emma sings all the time. I listen to her sing "Jesus Take the Wheel" by Carrie Underwood and it brings tears to my eyes. Emma had told us that when she grows up she wants to be a country singer. Also a vet and monster truck driver. She's very ambitious! I can't wait till achieves all her goals. I pray for her everyday!

12 Hour Day

Today was a long day. On Monday I worked 10 hours, Tuesday 9 hours, Wednesday 10, today I worked 12. Tomorrow I will most likely work 9 or 10 hours. Overtimes is back with a vengeance and I love it. The money always comes in very handy. On top of that, right now the overtime I do we can go to Fort Rapids Indoor water-park in August or September. Also I will mean going to California for awhile. YEAH!! I think I love overtime. Oh my goodness I'm an overtime junkie. LOL

Not So Bad of a Day

Today was a better day. People were acting rude and such but that happens everyday. Not much else is going on. I had a lazy day at work. Don't get me wrong, I work hard, but today was a light load (for me). Alex, Katey and Emma are playing at a friends house. Which is nice that they have a friend to hang out with. Chris and Bobby went to get soda. I'm alone in the house. Listening to music and relaxing my butt off. Today is a not so bad day. I just may take a bubble bath later.

Okay so I have mentioned before that I really do not like Tuesdays. I don't know why, it always seems like no one wants to work on Tuesdays expect me and a hand full of people. It really burns me up to see people walking around doing nothing and you yourself are busting you butt. IT REALLY MAKES ME MAD!!! I saw people talking when the lines were clear, I saw people just walk away when they should have been working, I even saw people leave for the day when there was still work to be done. We had a 9 hour day and at exactly 3:30 pm everyone but me, Sarah, Melinda and a few temps were left. I mean, come on!! I understand if you got to work at 5:00 am, yes feel free to leave after 10 hours. But everyone else should have at least offered to stay and help. That's what a good employee would have done.
I had to deal with stupid people all day as well. I was joking around with a guy, who on any other day would have come up with a smart mouth remark and laughed, but he didn't. He just rolled his eyes at me and turned his back. I don't care who you are, you DO NOT roll your eyes at me for any reason what so ever. I don't even let my husband or children roll their eyes at me. I'm tellin' ya, Tuesday's suck.
But you see I believe in Karma. What you put forth will come back 10 fold (or something similar to that). Everyone in the company got screwed this week on their paychecks. Some not so much as others. Ironically the ones who got hosed are the ones who were screwing around. Anyway, someone in the company (at headquarters) messed up and when they sent in the time cards, or whatever they send, it was for the week of major overtime (last week of the quarter). Mandatory overtime. Everyone works, no exceptions!! So the company told us last week that they would be taking out any overage of pay this week...follow? Well, the week of all this overtime I was out for 2 days with a bad kidney infection. So I only worked about a hour of said overtime. Everyone in the warehouse got a letter today of the amount they would be taking out and the amount they would be taking home. Some of my fellow employees only get to take home about $50. I myself did not receive such a letter and nothing will be taken from my check. Truth of the matter is I worked more overtime last week then the week of major overtime. Karma is a ^#%*! and I love her!!!

Tired Beyond Belief

I am so tired. I only got 45 minutes, yes you read right, of sleep. And worked 10 hours today. In the hottest place in the warehouse. The people in Loose Pick needed more people than expected. So I said I would go if they needed me. I always offer, but they never take me up on it. Well, today they did. I get the call just after first break.
So I walked the 5 minute trek to loose pick. I was put on a line that is notorious for being busy and stayed there all day. I bumped into my supervisor Darlene at 2:30 (when I was supposed to leave) and talked about me volunteering for the 10 hour day. Apparently, no one likes over time money?! Who knew?! Darlene laughed at my joke, and told me to get used to it, we are going to 10 hour days tomorrow. I laughed and went to break.
!0 hours goes pretty fast when you are constantly moving. Not to mention I didn't have to get on an OP!!! YEAH!! Since they couldn't use me in receiving I told Phil that I would buy him a coffee in the morning. I figured if I get him a caffeinated up he'll get on the OP- not me. Hehehe, I'm evil (and I love it).

Woke Up in a Foul Mood

Okay, so I normally get up at 4:30am in the morning to go to work and today I wanted to sleep in. I didn't realize that it was almost 3:30pm when I got up out of bed. But this is how I got woken up.
"Jette get up." At the door which I really dislike.
"Jette get up NOW!" 2nd time
"Jette it's almost 3:30 and I'm leaving and it's time for you to get up NOW!!" Shouting at the door.
I finally got up, but very angry. Would it hurt Chris to come in rub my back and say something like "Honey, it's getting late and I know you didn't want to sleep this long. But you looked so sweet and peaceful, that I just let you sleep. But it's time to get up. I love you." Is that so hard.
I know that you can't always do that, but come on do you really need to shout at me when I'm sleeping. Of course, Chris knew that it wasn't the best way to wake me up and came to say he was sorry. I did so as well, I didn't want to start the day angry. We kissed and made up. Sometimes you fight and make up within a few minutes sometimes longer, but either way it's nice when he admits when he is wrong. LOL
