Well, having a "real" job is interesting. I guess. The schedule is way better. Take now, for instance. Not only do I have every weekend off but we get Thanksgiving and Friday off paid!!!! Oh to be out of the land of retail. Right now my old friends are being subjected to Christmas music all day everyday.
Christmas. It takes on a life of its own. My favorite holidays have come and gone. K loves the hustle and bustle of it all, he's going to the mall on Friday, the busiest shopping day of the year. I, of course, retreat to the woods. I'm hoping for a Christmas miracle that will get me in the spirit.
Yesterday, on the way home from our favorite Mexican restaraunt we were driving down a pretty major street when a car going the other direction (toward us, but far enough away) made a left in front of us,hopped the divider and shot off the road and down into the ditch. I wanted to go down to the car and see if I could do anything but K insisted that I not go down. Then neither of us could get cell phone reception so I had to sprint to Carl's Jr and call 911. Anyway it was an older man, he may have had a heart attack....the accident was fatal. Five cop cars, a fire truck and two ambulances showed up. We gave them all our information and continued on our way. How is it possable that we were the only ones that saw it and stopped? How long would he have been there if we didn't stop? Unreal.
I had to learn a report at work and I wasn't familiar with excel. The poor woman who was teaching me was trying so hard to be patient,she has a degree in computers and is very professional and doesn't even wear jeans on casual day.I'm a weird learner though, if somebody is showing me something I get very nervous and forget parts that I allready know, but the minute they step away I can do all of it including things I've seen only one time. For some reason I have to make an idiot out of myself first RRRr.
I'm going to get a book on Excel and make my own report recording trail miles/gym miles/dog walk miles with running totals for the week and month. I will try to have a section where I can track weight loss and points values too. The complexity will depend on how much time I'm able to put into it.
Melancholy, I have about 10 hours to get all Thankfull. Happy Thanksgiving!
