Today's good thing: another good day at work.

Today's good thing: we had a quiet and fairly productive day here that involved laundry, getting the garbage ready for pickup, doing dishes and grilling.

Sort of non-spoilery Suicide Squad review: it could've used more Joker. Jared Leto really was amazing, despite his let's-take-the-fun-out-of-dysfunctonal relationship with Harley Quinn. Speaking of which, Margot Robbie was really great as Harley. I feel like she, Deadshot, Diablo and of course, the Joker, were the highlights for me. Did anyone else get a Freddie Mercury vibe from the first shot of the Joker in the club?

Adam Beach has a blink-and-you-miss-it role. The only part that lagged for me was Amanda Waller giving backstory for everyone. The editing is a bit choppy. I think they communicated that Waller is a stone cold bitch pretty well.

I am wondering if Cara Delevingne was directed to Shatner it up, or what was going on there.

Killer Croc and Katana... sort of meh. Captain Boomerang was just annoying. Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag did really well.

Overall, not sorry we saw it, looking forward to the next one.

Today's good thing: it was an awesome day! We went to Douglas for an early showing of Suicide Squad(sort of non-spoilery review coming up), did a little shopping, then had dinner at Old Times, to celebrate J's 45th birthday. We got to see Shari's mom Cheryl at Old Times. It was so good to see her. It's been ages.Then we came home and relaxed.

Today's good thing: got up early, did laundry, went to courthouse and got auto tags, picked up breakfast, had a nap later... pretty nice day, actually.

Today's good thing: we had our 30 day pre-inventory walk and it went pretty well. Again, busy day, but not bad.

Today's good thing: another awesome day. Went back to bed after J left for work - - and a near heart attack. I always feed the cats after I walk J out. When I went back out there, the cats had dragged someone's hair weave on the porch, my foot brushed up against it and I shrieked like a girl. Anyway, when I got back up, I did laundry, of course, and more painting, and cut the grass... and managed to finish before it rained.

I also watched a lot of Legends of Tomorrow, too. Including the ep where Len dies. I cried again.

Today's good thing: we had a relaxing day here. I got up at 8am, but later went back to bed for a couple of hours. I did laundry, some painting, cooked dinner, and we watched some TV.

Today's good thing: I was off work, but J had to work, I did some laundry, then went back to bed for a couple of hours. When I got up, I went to Rhine, to take my uncle some lunch and visit with him. We did some shopping and went by the cemetery. He didn't do too well with that. He's still very emotional. I headed home and then Robbie and Chrisey came by for a visit. Now we've had dinner, I'm about to have a shower and go to bed.

This week's post was already up at thefridayfive

1. Do you like ketchup or tomatoes or both? Both.


2. Do you like grape jelly/jam or purple grapes or both?
Both, but I like grapes better than I like jam or jelly.

3. Do you like cider or apples or both? I could take or leave either. I'm not crazy about apples.

4. Do you like cream or milk or both? I cook with cream, and use it in coffee. I use milk in cereal. So, cream, I guess.

5. Do you like zucchini bread or zucchini or both? Zucchini bread is okay, but I love zucchini, fried, steamed, in salad or casseroles.

Today's good thing: y'all, I had an awesome day at work. I had no freight, so I took out some stuff that would go out, I did price changes, worked my top stock, worked on some counts, cleaned stuff... if only it could be like this every day.

Today's good thing: another good day at work. Meaning, no freight, I stayed(mostly) in my own department and actually did stuff for inventory.

Today's good thing: *knock on wood* Work wasn't bad today. Lots of freight, but not bad.

Today's good thing: I got up around 9am, but, again, fell asleep in my chair around 10 and slept until 12. After I finally got up, I did more laundry, painted that cemetery vase, watered my flowers, and made dinner. Off to bed soon, I go back to work tomorrow. I pray this week is better. Please don't let it be worse.

Today's good thing: we had a good day. I slept until 4am when J and his CPAP mask woke me. There was some sort of tea kettle/train whistle thing going on, and I couldn't get him awake enough to make him stop, so I got up and slept in my chair until around 10am. I made a grocery run, did some laundry, painted a bookcase and prepped a cemetery vase to paint, and cooked dinner.

Today's good thing: we had an awesome, productive day. We got up very early, went by Sharon cemetery and painted Mama and Daddy's grave stones. Then we went by Pleasant Grove to look for more un-photographed graves. Then we went to the old house to try and clean up a bit. It had become sort of a really big storage building. Y'all know I'm a hoarder. but hey, we threw stuff away! Robbie and Chrisey came by later and helped us. Then we visited my uncle. After the painting and spending all day cleaning, we were nasty and very tired. We picked up some dinner, came home and showered and ate, now we're watching a movie.

Today's good thing: I don't know what next week will bring, but for today, work wasn't horrible. I've decided to go with the flow... management isn't concerned with inventory, why should I be?

And, Thomas, our inept store manager, announced today he's stepping down to co-manage the Jesup store. Please God, don't let us get anyone worse.

Today's good thing maybe postponed until work gets better. If it does get better.

I am seriously considering stepping down as department manager after inventory is over. If inventory goes the way I think it will, several of us will no doubt be asked to step down. I already told J. Sarah's on vacation right now, so I'll talk to her on Monday. The little bit of extra money is not worth the constant aggravation and stress. If they leave me alone an let me do my job, okay. But this constant case of always being in other departments, not getting my work done and then being fussed about it... no.

Today's good thing: not good, work sucked ass again. Our brilliant management sent people to another store, leaving(gasp!) two people to work grocery, so once again, the department managers got to work grocery bins. For three hours. So once again, no inventory work was done. Then at 2, we got to go back and zone grocery. I wish they cared as much about our departments as they do about grocery. And I'm sure when we fail inventory they'll be very understanding.

Today's good thing: I had a pretty good day. I went back to bed for a couple of hours after left for work. Then I got up and did some cleaning and laundry while binge-watching X Files eps(including Tunguska and Terma, of course). And later, I actually made dinner. Go me!

Other than that, it's been a trying couple of days. Saturday was work, and it was especially trying. Seriously, the store is being mismanaged horribly.

Sunday, I had to go to my uncle's. We were right across the creek at the cemetery Friday, but he was gone to his pain clinic appointment. After he got home, he got Hannah to call and ask me if I could come Sunday to do his bills. Yes, of course Hannah could've done all two of them while she was there, but while I was at my uncle's, I found out some stuff.

When he left the ER that day we took him, they asked him to come stay with them until he was better. Hannah asked me if I thought it was fair that he help out with groceries while he was there, and I said sure, of course, he would have to buy food at home. Over the course of his time there, he told them I was inheriting his house and land(Daddy gave them the land years ago, and unknown to me, he had asked that it go to me after they died). After they found this out, Joey and especially Hannah, started saying they wouldn't be able to take him to the doctor from now on, or do his bills, etc.

When I went over yesterday, J stayed home, so it was just me and my uncle. He told me, and I have no reason to believe he would lie, that Joey and Hannah told him if he stayed with them, he would have to give them $550 a month. Coincidentally, he's just told my other uncle Joey's dad, that he would be receiving $550 a month from my aunt's retirement or social security, I don't know which. And that joey brought that up. That shit made my blood pressure go up, but I can't confront them, because he made me promise not to. And all this time, they've been complaining about his brother being out to get his money.

In other news, Robbie and Chrisey will be coming tomorrow afternoon to spend a couple of days. Here, in this tiny house, where there's only one bed. It's a long, convoluted story... he took a job up here, not knowing at the time they would be paid every two weeks and that he would have to work a month with no pay. At the time, we were having a property tax crisis. They were going to put a lien on the land, and since Robbie's going to be living on it, he said he would pay the taxes off. He sent $500, and I came up with $200, and then he was supposed to send the other $600, but because of all this, he couldn't. So I used the money for a couple of house payments(we were behind one because of taxes already) and sent the rest. Now, he's quit this job because they didn't pay him last week like they were supposed to - - he didn't get it until today. He's going back to his Florida job, but not for a few days. His rent on the place where he's working here ends tomorrow. It's going to be a trying couple of days. If we had room, I wouldn't mind, but we're going to be on top of each other and won't have any privacy. I keep thinking, it's just a couple of days... and I know Mom wouldn't want me to turn him away.

Today's good thing: I got up early, and later took lunch to my uncle and visited with him, and then we got the garbage out and J did dishes. Not much was accomplished, but I'm tired.
