*blows off dust* Why hello there old livejournal.

"And since we've no place to go..."

I think I must be the only one who does not want a "white Christmas". I'd much rather have it be dry and cold than wet and cold.

I went into work early today since we were getting a truck in and got to leave early, just as the snow was coming in. I'd never had to drive in this kind of weather before, so it was an adventure. Though, not a really fun one.

I worked from four this morning to eleven, we opened at eight and did two carry outs. Eric, Mellisa and I had to do a tramp and they guy had some SUV, though I didn't get a good look and was like, "Should I put down the seats?" Um, yes. You prolly should considering it won't fit any other way.

Then this couple came in wanting to buy a kayak, so it was pulled out and we all stood there for about seven minutes while they slowly figured out it wouldn't be the best idea considering we have a mini blizzard going on right now.

Ah, stupidity. How you amuse me sometimes.
Day off! I'm going to spend some time with my friend, who I haven't spent a lot of time with lately. It's been getting really crazy at work and everyone is getting over dramatic and cranky.

The cashiers act like they have the hardest job in the world and footwear is having inter-department drama of their own. And everyone thinks our section does nothing but talk. We do talk a lot, but it's mainly stuff like, "Well, I have to pull a treadmill and this one guy wants a trampoline and enclosure". "Also, we're out of this scooter but Store 88 has it".

They crazy boy in our department got fired (finally) and we're going to throw a party to celebrate. XD He was so creepy and said the weirdest shit and totally thought he was like Casanova or something. Ugh.

"I heard them singing...."

Bleh, I've been so tired lately that all I wanted to do is sleep. I don't think I'm going to get too much of that any time soon though. Work is getting crazy with Christmas getting closer and people are getting cranky and even more stupid.

You'd think one would eventually learn to shop just a little bit earlier, but whatever. At least I have my shopping already done. =p

Mom's knee is really bothering her lately. More so than usual, she has a doctor's appointment this Wednesday and she's afraid that she might have to have surgery on it. I hope that's not the case either, but we'll just have to wait and see.

It's an update!

Of sorts...

So, I'm really liking my new job. I work at a Sporting Goods store now and am in the Team Sports section. XD Seems kinda odd, I guess. Going from jewelry and cell phones where it was only me and like two or three other people to working with at least five people in my section and having to haul heavy things out for customers.

I like it, I'm one of four girls in my section. The boys are fun and wacky and we're always joking around. There's really only one problem child, but he's going to be fired soon most probably so I don't really care. Plus he hardly ever comes in now. Ah, drama...

I think it's really funny, that everyone at work is slowly becoming FB buddies too. There also seems to be no concept of personal space, but whatev. XD


It's finally the 23rd and the opening of the store was ... anti-climatic. We've put so much work into it, I've put so much work into this store and am so sick of certain areas of the store that it's kinda sad. Haha.

We get a really good discount though, 15-25% off on everything except for more high end items. And now I want to focus on losing weight again. Which is awesome because I can get a ton of cute stuff with said discount!

I've been reading again, which I'm happy about and hope to keep up the momentum. I wanna get through all of what I have and eventually weed some out.

We're thinking about joining the YMCA here, it has a pool and an indoor gym with a cool running track. I'm getting over the fact that they only allow "traditional families", though I try not to think about it too much. Ugh.


I start on the Merch crew tomorrow. 6:30a to 6:00p

I don't know what to expect, really. I went to the Safety Orientation and saw Michelle. She pretended not to know me and I did the same. I hope to god that we aren't in the same area. Though if we are, maybe she won't show up one day. =p

The schedule we got is only five days, so I'll ask tomorrow if that's it or if there's more. Hopefully, all the work will help me lose weight! =D

Also, I started the long and painful process that is cleaning my room. I got the top shelves of my closet clean and my purses all lined up. Some of the crappy storage cabinet cleaned out and some clothes folded. I also put some of my old work clothes in the hall closet, as well as a few shoes. Progress! Even, if its just a little bit.

Over at the hospital right now. Ken had an appointment with the doctor. Bleh, the people in the waiting room are so fucking annoying. It's like a family event for these people. Jeez!
