Today's good thing: work wasn't awful, even with the overwhelming amount of mods and new products for the mods. ON had my stuff just about done when I got there, I just had to deal with the overstock and new mod. Then I worked picks and the pharmacy cart that was "overstock." I did price changes and section work.
It rained all day, but I didn't get to enjoy it, and it was turning cold when I got home. Really not ready for that. I've really enjoyed these last few warm days.
The babies must not like it either. They were in their heated house when I got home, and were back in it when I went outside just now to visit them. It was a short visit.
Today's good thing: it was a good, if unproductive day here. No laundry, obviously. J didn't go to bed until I got up(around 8am), so after I fed the babies, did my reading and had breakfast, I went outside. In theory to plant bulbs and shell pecans, but mostly to cuddle the babies. It was warm, but very cloudy, and rained right after I came inside.
We had a simple dinner of patty melts, fries and deviled eggs.
Today's good thing: despite our washer crapping out today, it was still a nice day.
I got up around 6am, but Bucky and I had a power nap later. I did fun things like dishes and laundry(until the washer made that horrible death rattle). Sadly, it had sheet and towels in it, and let me tell you, I am in no hurry to go back to the days of ringing out wet laundry.
It was a beautiful, warm day, and I spent a lot of it outside with the babies. They loved it as much as I did. I finished my final Valentine decoration, and did some cleaning and rearranging on the porch. But honestly, I mostly sat on the porch enjoying the warm and letting the babies crawl all over me. I have to say, for Misty to be so sweet, she is just like Squeaky when she's fighting her sisters: she goes right for the neck. Tash outweighs her by about a pound(they're all the same age, but Tash is just huge), but I had to rescue her from Misty.
We had breakfast for dinner, and it was delicious.
I'm watching the final season of Shameless. It's been quite a ride, these last 11 seasons. Frank still gets the worst parent award, but Debbie is following in his footsteps. Kev and V still have the most stable relationship, and V is the best parent. I'm still rooting for Ian and Mickey, Lip, and Liam. I imagined Carl ending up a serial killer, and instead, he's a cop.
Today's good thing: work wasn't awful. Not much overstock to deal with, changed out a feature and put up clearance makeup labels, all before the customers came in. Not that they didn't try. Again, we had two people try and come in around 6:15 to shop. These people know they're not supposed to come in the employee door.
It got busy around lunchtime. Speaking of... someone brought some kind of meat for lunch(I hope someone brought it, I hope deli wasn't cooking that), and it smelled like wild hog, if that makes sense. It nearly made me nauseous.
I came home and cooked dinner, which amazed me, too. Then J and I went outside to spend time with the babies. Why is it always so cold on the porch? I told J I need a wood privacy fence beside the house to stop the wind.
Today's good thing: it was a Saturday at Walmart, so, not great. This is despite most of my freight being worked. I still had to get the overstock in the bin(it's full again), work the picks, makeup, put stuff in keeper boxes and spider wire, do price changes... and picks from yesterday. When I'm off, people cap the bins, but no one works the picks. I was pretty productive before lunch. Afterward, the most annoying customers ever were in the store. I know it sounds paranoid, but when I'm trying to stock stuff, customers will either herd me out of the way(no one knows the words "excuse me"), or stand there and sigh until I move. I move WAY out of the way, then they leave without getting anything, because it's not fun anymore, which makes it seem like they do it just to annoy me.
It was a lovely afternoon, if you stayed in the sun. I spent some time with the babies.
Today's good thing: it wasn't a bad day, but I didn't accomplish much. It was raining, which made me sleepy, and made it impossible to do outside work. I did sit with the babies for a little while. And I did laundry, of course.
Today's good thing: work wasn't awful. The freight was pretty much done when I got there, so I finally got the pharmacy top stock carts worked. Ms Debra helped me, and I surprised her by actually throwing away some of the boxes I was hoarding.
But then I had to change out an end cap, and put up a million shampoo clearance price changes. I also did section work.
After I got home, I planned to sit outside with the babies, but it was cooler today, and rainy and I didn't last long.
And we had some disappointed robins in the yard today. They always come every year and eat the berries on the red tips. And we had the red tips cut down.
J went to bed early, so I'm watching tv and Bucky's sleeping in my lap.
Today's good thing: well, mostly, that Biden is president now and we get the country back on track and undo the mess that the last 4 years has been.
It was definitely not work. It continues to go downhill. Too much freight, too much new mod stuff, no time for top stock or the carts in the back... and it was after 5am before I got any equipment to cap bins. You would think a multi-billion dollar company could afford enough equipment that we could do our jobs. I feel like if we could have, say, a week of no GM trucks, I might get pharmacy and HBA back on track. This constant cycle we're on prohibits that.
After work was nice - - the weather is warm right now, so I got outside this afternoon. I don't know if my poor Valentine/Easter/autumn/Christmas trees will survive Shuri. She keeps knocking them over, breaking off branches and taking the ornaments off to play with them. I love her to death, but she's mean as a snake.
Today's good thing: I spent most of it outside! The babies were happy and so was I.
Although, I got up at 4am. It was getting crowded with J, me, Bucky and Jem all trying to occupy the same bed. And the position I was in was making me snore and I was waking myself up. I got up and Bucky and I slept in my chair for about 4 hours, and I had weird, intense dreams.
When I got up, finally, I had breakfast and did laundry. Then I went outside. It was cold at first, and stayed cool in the shade, but I had so much fun. I planted some daffodil bulbs, with some "help" from Shuri. I sat on the porch and cuddled the babies. Misty is a lot like Bucky. She loves to groom people and she loves to sleep on Mama.
I mostly finished Valentine decorating - - J had to cut a couple of boards for my final decoration - - and put some more(matching this time) plastic tiles on the walk way. The place I ordered them from ran out of the terra cotta colored ones, and I had gray in places and it was driving me crazy.
After being jealous of lawn people's leaf blower for a while, J got me one, and I used it today. I blew all the leaves off the walkway, blew some into a pile and took them to the street for pickup. I also blew all the debris off the porch. I didn't want to come inside. It was a very springlike day and I want it to stay this way.
