I never want to see another box of crackers or cookies ... ever again.

Today was supposed to be my day off, but I was asked to go in to help get food out on the shelves. Which is what I did today. It's all I did today. There were 5 of us working on getting food out on the shelves and most all of it consisted of some sort of cracker {graham, saltine, etc} or cookie {chips ahoy, oreoes, etc.}

I priced and shelved 324 boxes, not including the many numerous boxes of Triskits and Wheat Thins that needed pricing. All of us agreed that we never wanted to see another box of crackers or cookies again. We've dealt with enough today to last us a lifetime.

Anywho, Matt left to go back to Illinois very early this morning. His flight left at 6am. I don't know when I'll see him again because I'll probably be moving before he has the chance to come back out to Vegas. I'm okay with it though. He's a friend, but he and I are not close enough for me to want to see him too often.

I've been very hungry today. I bought two small boxes of Wheat Thins {sun-dried tomato & basil and cream cheese & chives}, a bag of M&Ms and I'm eating stuffing right now. I haven't had Wheat Thins in a while and since I was working on them for the first two hours of my shift, I was getting cravings for them. I already knew I liked the sun-dried tomato & basil, but the cream cheese & chives looked and sounded interesting so I tried it. It's good. I'd recommend them.

I'm feeling better today. I'll be taking another dose of Nyquil tonight {it'll be the third night in a row} so hopefully by Tuesday {when I work again} I won't sound or feel sick. My nose still runs if I'm out in the cold too long or if I work too hard, my cough is still there and I'm still slightly humming in my own head when I talk, but other than that I feel fine. I was more energetic today at work. The last two days I've been feeling very lethargic and just blah, but today was an okay day ... with the exception of all the effing boxes!

Alright, I tend to ramble when I'm energetic, but I'm done now. I shall write again whenever.

I'm still sick. I mean, yeah, I wasn't expecting to be better in one day. But it's really annoying being sick for longer than a day.

My work is an iffy thing right now. I filled out the paperwork to keep me on as a regular employee, rather than just for seasonal. But because the season is over, the hours available have been cut. My boss has only been given so many hours to work with and has to fit in all her employees in that short time limit. So not just my hours have been cut. I've gone from working close to 40 hours a week to working less than 30.

This cold also came at a bad time. I can't afford to miss work. I need every penny I can get, but I also need my rest so that the cold doesn't get worse. If it gets worse I'll have to miss work. It's just a really big inconvenience. I've never known a cold to ever come at a 'convenient' time.

In other news, I haven't taken advantage of the after-Christmas sales. I haven't really seen anything that I've liked. Maybe when I get better I'll go out and see what's left.

I'd like to hang out with some of the people at work, but I have a feeling I don't really fit in with them. They've all known each other for quite some time. I'm friendly enough and I get along with everyone alright, but all the talk of possibly inviting me out with them has been only that, talk. Maybe one day that'll change.

I think that's it for tonight. I'll write again tomorrow.

still behind
Friday. 12.28.07 1:59 pm
Nutang is back and I'm on it whenever I get the chance, but I'm still so far behind. I'm not even on the "most active members" list, I get and read and appreciate your comments, but I haven't had the right mind frame to comment back. I do read your entries, but I usually don't have time or, again, the right frame of mind for comments.

I'm sick, I'm not sleeping, I'm working crazy-weird hours ... my life, though not very active, is quite full at the moment.

My friend Matt has been in town for the last week and we got the chance to hang out yesterday. I've known him since freshman year and this is the first time I've seen him in over 5 years. We lost touch for a while, but thanks to the internet, we started talking again.

It was nice seeing him again, but he hasn't really changed much. He's immature and big ... he never grew into his big head though. {no kidding, no exagerating} We went to a few stores; he was nice enough to buy me the body jewelry I wanted and he bought some stuff for my sister too. He stayed for dinner and afterwards we hung out and talked. He had to leave though; I needed to get sleep. It was probably the last time I'll see him for quite a while again because I'll be moving before he has the chance to come back out to Vegas. Maybe we can work something out.

I'm excited about the body jewelry he got me. I now have a 10g in my tongue. It was a little difficult to get it in ... the 10g is a little bigger than a 12g. I ended up going into the bathroom and shoving it through my tongue. I'm happy with it though. I'm not sure if I'll go up another size; I think I'll keep the 10g in for a while before I decide whether or not to gauge it bigger.

Uhm, I think that's it for now. I'll try and comment on your entries later tonight, but tonight I plan on making up on the sleep I missed out on last night. 'Till next time.

*cough* grrr

Alright, so I guess the cold decided it was close enough to the New Year. I'm not sick, but I've got a cold. My nose runs every time I look down or bend over. My cough ... I'm stuck with it regardless if I'm sick or not. I'm not running a fever; I very rarely do. And my mom says I sound congested. Not a big deal. I just don't want to push myself with the end result being pnemonia. I really, really can't afford to not work and I hate hospitals even more.

Anywho, my plans for today are to go out for a little bit, maybe to the movies and definitely to the store. Other than that, I'll be talking it easy.

Yesterday I went out with Lori and Tony to Target and Wal-Mart. I've got $19.40 left on the $100 card I received. It's sad just how quickly $100 disappears these days. What killed a good chunk of the card, though, were the two DVDs I bought. One was a late gift for ma. I also went online in search of the POTC3 2-disc limited edition DVD {which doesn't seem to be in stores anymore} and I bought it through Barnes & Noble. It'll be here in the next couple days.

Yesterday was a very mellow day at work. I know it won't be the same tomorrow. There's a truck tomorrow and I, unfortunately, have to work it. I'm going to do my best to not push myself, but the sooner we get the truck done, the sooner I can take a break. Maybe they'll send me home, but I'm not sick enough for that and I'm too stubborn. I can work, I just can't overwork myself. If that happens, I'll get worse and then I won't be able to work. This is not a good time for me to be sick. The holiday season is just about over and I really need to prove myself so that I can keep a permanent position at Big Lots. We'll see what happens.

Uhm, I guess Randy got over his being pissed at me because he called today. Damnit. I need to figure out something else that'll get him to stop calling. I don't want to be mean or cruel, but if it works ...

Uhh, that's it for today. I'll write probably tomorrow.

x-mas day
Tuesday. 12.25.07 4:50 pm
We finally got the tree decorated around 2pm this afternoon. It looks busy, but we just have a lot of ornaments. It's about as good as we could get it though. We left the garland/tinsel off it, otherwise it would have looked busier.

The gifts I got this year were small, but I got the two most crucial things I wanted. The new Angels and Airwaves CD: I-Empire, and the new OneRepublic CD: Dreaming Out Loud. I got Pirates 3, but it's not the 2 disc special edition. I'm going to be keeping this one and probably giving it to ma when I find and buy the 2 disc DVD. I also go my calendar for next year, but that's something I get every year. I was with ma when she bought it. I also got a $100 VISA gift card. About the only place I can't use it is at work. Lame.

We'll be having dinner around 6ish. I don't like ham, but it's tradition for us to have a Honey Baked ham. With it we're having stuffing, mashed potatoes, steamed veggies, cranberry sauce {one of the grossest things ever, in my opinion} and 3 different kinds of pies for dessert.

I haven't got much to say. I'm happy that I go the two CDs I wanted. I mean, today could have been better, but it could have been worse. There's always something uncomfortable about the holidays for me, but I'm not really sure what it is. I mean, it could be that Dad isn't here, but it's been over 12 years now.

Unfortunately I have a feeling I'm starting to get sick. I can feel it in the back of my throat. The feeling has been there every morning for the last week, but this morning it didn't go away after I had been up for a while. I still have a week before I can get sick.

Alright, I'm done for today.

running late
Monday. 12.24.07 10:40 pm
We're running so far behind this year. We got the Christmas tree a couple days ago, but we didn't get it in the house until tonight. It had been in the backyard because we didn't have a tree stand. It's still not decorated.

I've only wrapped one gift. The other two that are taken care of, one is in a gift box; the other is in a gift bag. Not something that involves wrapping. I have gifts that need wrapping and I want my sister's help in doing so, but she's pissed off so I have a feeling I'll be doing it myself.

This year is not a good Christmas simply because we are so far behind. I don't think there could have been anything done differently to change it either. There just wasn't any time. Oh well.

I'm off work tomorrow simply because we are closed. If we were open, I'd probably have to work. I'm glad I don't, but ma has to work so we won't be really celebrating and opening gifts until she gets off work. Not a big deal though.

Alright, that's all I can think of right now. I need to shower before I go to bed so I'll write again tomorrow.
