Cold
Tuesday. 10.29.13 9:27 pm
We dipped below 40 this morning. This prompted me to put my inner lining back in my work coat. It did warm up some when the sun came out, but only to the mid 50s, which is actually pretty normal for this time of year. It's nice that it's cold outside, though. It sure as hell beats being too hot. Although, I am hoping that at least a couple days in Vegas are sunny and in the 60s so that I can walk around in a t-shirt and have people look at me for being strange. It would be funny.

I'm hoping to be in bed and asleep before 10:30 tonight, which is an hour away. I'm already pretty tired so there's a high possibility of that actually happening tonight. Only two more days of work before my day off. I've been waiting since my last day off. Hopefully tomorrow goes smoothly and quickly.

Until then. . .

I can do this...
Monday. 10.28.13 9:38 pm
That has become my mantra, especially now that I'm getting down to the final weeks. December is getting closer and closer by the day and it's pretty awesome. I can hardly believe that November starts at the end of the week.

There's a few things I need to get done, such as buy a duffle bag and packing totes off Amazon, which I'll be trying my free trial month of Amazon Prime starting on the 1st. I need to contact my insurance agent to see about coverage for the rental car in Vegas. I need to contact my property manager to let her know that I'll be gone for two weeks and should there be an emergency to let me know before she needs to enter my place. I already have permission to park at work for the time I'm gone; I just need specific confirmation from the guy in charge so that I can get my vehicle information to him for record keeping purposes.

I know there's a few other things I need to get done, but my brain hurts so I'll type up more as it comes to me throughout the month. State Farm sent me holiday address labels. I found that really sweet, in a way. I'm sure they sent them to all their customers, but it's still a nice gesture. Now I should just buy some holiday themed Forever stamps to go along with them.

Alright, I need to let my hair dry a smidge before I call it a night. I'm still debating whether to watch Once Upon a Time or some YouTube videos while I wait. I'll let you know tomorrow which one I chose.

Until then. . .

Calmed
Sunday. 10.27.13 7:26 pm
I was so pissed last night that I actually exhausted myself to sleep last night. I didn't get the best sleep in the world, but I slept enough to make it feel sufficient for the shift. However, I took a solid 3 hour nap when I got home from work. I could have turned over and gone right back to sleep, but I knew that if that happened, I would be wide awake at 2am and with both jobs tomorrow {and for the next 4 days} I will need to get some kind of decent sleep all the way through until my alarm goes off.

Today at work was pretty much a typical Sunday. Tomorrow, I'm hoping, will be a typical Monday, but we'll see what happens.

I finally got off my lazy ass and washed some dishes so that I could cook up some couscous. Living off the broke man's diet of ramen noodles is great, but it gets real old, real fast. I want some kind of meat, but my $0.05 won't help much with that. Luckily I'll be so busy with work the next 4 days that I won't think much about whether I've had anything more than ramen to eat.

It's kind of crazy how quickly time flies when you don't have time to stop and think about it. I've been with Sam's for nearly 3 months already. My sister warned that when I get back from my vacation that I should ween myself slowly off having the second job because if I suddenly went from working 68 hours a week down to 40, I wouldn't know what to do with myself and I'd probably go crazy. So I'll probably cut it back to 55 hours a week. Or even go down to 60, which is what I originally signed up for. We'll see what happens.

Until tomorrow. . .

Damn crybaby

You're an adult. Act like one. Don't bitch and whine because you have to work alone. I'm sorry that people are fucktards and don't have the courtesy to refold the clothes they go through, but don't make me have to stay longer than necessary when I have to be up at 4:45 in the morning to go to my other job. THEN, you're going have the balls to lecture me on how I shouldn't burn myself out working two jobs. Motherfucker, you're the bitch who cried about not having help so they sent me to help you! Fuck off!

Some people. Seriously. Of course I'm going to bitch about having to stay over because I have another fucking job to go to! You have no right to bitch to them about needing help when it's your fucking job to do this shit. You've been doing this shit longer than I've been alive. You should know how this shit works. And then you go and have the nerve to lecture me on being burned out after they made me stay to help you. Again. Fuck off.

I'm so wound up right now; I'm pretty certain sleep will be sparse tonight which means I'll still be bitchy tomorrow morning which means my other coworkers are going to have to deal with the brunt of it. Perhaps I'll just patrol more than normal so that I can avoid people for a while until I can cool off. Hopefully this isn't a repeat situation. If I don't get sleep because I choose to stay awake later than I should, that's my own fault, but when my other job refuses to let me go so that I can actually attempt to get a somewhat reasonable amount of sleep, it makes me feel rushed. I don't know about you, but I can't just get home from work and immediately go to sleep. It's just not possible.

Argh. At least I have this place to kind of rant and get it out of my system. Hopefully the remainder of the week isn't complete shit. If today is any indication how the rest of the week will go, I'll be seriously tempted to quit the other job just to keep my sanity in check.

I really hope tomorrow goes smoothly.

Until then. . .

Le sigh

It's actually kind of cool all the things that Sam's Club does for its employees, despite the fact that they're associated with Wal-Mart and usually get a bum rap. It would be more awesome, however, if my other job didn't interfere with me being able to participate in a majority of the events. Such as tomorrow they're getting volunteers together to help out at a Leukemia and Lymphoma 5K. I would love to go help out; I very much like to volunteer, but I'll be at work. Then Monday is the October birthday lunch, where a manager takes the employees out to lunch for their birthday. It happens every month, but this particular month it's occurring on a Monday. I'll be at work. And with my luck, it'll be my favorite manager taking everyone out.

Speaking of which, I got to briefly talk to him on the phone this morning because the person I called and asked for wasn't there. I'm not sure he even knew it was me, but I don't really care. I called to verify the day/date of the birthday lunch because my invitation in the mail said Friday October 28th... which is Monday. So either the date was wrong or the day was wrong. I was seriously hoping the date was wrong and that it was today. I totally would have gotten dressed and gone out for a free luncheon. However, he verified that it was moved to Monday, which means I can't go. Of course. Oh well. I'm planning on finally making my bold move here in a few weeks so we'll see how that goes. Worst that could happen? I get fired. Best that could happen? I get a date. Probable outcome? Things get weird for a while, but I keep my job.

Alright, I haven't gotten very far in catching up on my videos yet so I'm gonna go make a dent.

Until tomorrow. . .

Stupid tires!
Thursday. 10.24.13 10:21 pm
I have such shit luck with tires, it's almost unreal. This time, however, it wasn't the tire itself that was causing the problem; it was the TPMS {tire pressure monitoring system} that seems to have been the issue. I guess the guy said there was a part that was worn so he replaced it. Hopefully now there will be no issue. I'm really sick of seeing my pressure light come on after such a short period of time. I'm definitely glad that there's no actual problem with the tires themselves {other than needing to be replaced,} but still. This morning was the 3rd time in the last month that the light has come on.

It's definitely a good thing that I was able to get my shift adjusted for today, despite the fact that I didn't actually get to do the thing that was the original reason for adjusting my schedule, but I guess I didn't miss too much. I spent a good while longer than I wanted at the tire place and I was at work barely on time, but at least I got everything figured out and was still on time.

Tomorrow is my day off. Finally. I plan on staying in pajamas the whole day. I'll be catching up on my Hulu shows and my YouTube videos and possibly, if there's time, finally starting season 3 of the Walking Dead. That's a big if, but I guess we'll find out what happens. Here's to vegging out tomorrow.

Until then. . .
