Today's good thing: work wasn't quite as busy today, but was still somewhat enjoyable.

Today's good thing: work was busy, but the day went by fast.

And y'all, I feel so dumb. Let me preface this by saying when I came back from lunch, I had just gotten my vest back on and a customer needed help. After that, I went about my business, doing top stock. When I got ready to head to the back, I realized my badge wasn't on my vest. I backtracked, looked on top stock, looked in the trash... I assumed because it's so incredibly heavy now, it had fallen off. I resigned myself to getting emergency one to clock out, and tell Mendy I needed a new one. Then I needed my marker for something, and realized I never took my badge off my lanyard. I got distracted by the customer and never put it on my vest.

On a related note(only because my name is on my badge), when I stopped by Dollar General this afternoon, I got called "Ricky" by a former co-worker, but I know she wasn't being malicious. So far, I've been called(by present and former co-workers) Terry, Charlie, Brandy, and my actual name.

Today's good thing: got up around 9 today. I'm afraid Jem is narcoleptic. He slept all night between J and me. He won't sleep on either side, only in the middle. If I'm turned away from J, Jem will tap me on the arm or neck or back with his paw until I turn over. If I don't, he'll sleep above my head on my pillow. After we got up and he ate, he went back to sleep in my arms.

We had breakfast a bit earlier today. After that, I did some laundry and since the rain had stopped, I went outside to paint flower pots and decorate for Easter. I got a bunch of eggs hung, and two bunnies, and I put up my Easter wreath.

I also got the garbage out, J and I changed the sheets, and I made dinner(hamburger steak, gravy, rice and corn tonight, peach cobbler for dessert).

Today's good thing: pretty nice day, even if I didn't get to be outside as much as I would have liked.

I didn't get up until like 9:30, and wouldn't have then if Squeaky hadn't started running back and forth across the bed. I was asleep, J was asleep, Jem and Fitz were asleep. The cats and I got up, I got them fed, did my internet reading, and a little after 11, I fell asleep in my chair and slept until 12. It was a rough week at work, and I was still tired because I dreamed all night.

We had breakfast at nearly 1pm, and then we did some much needed cleaning, because we didn't get much done last weekend except P2B, and nothing done this week. We did laundry and cleaned and vacuumed the living room, then J cleaned and put away stuff in the kitchen while I did dishes and cooked some chicken for the casserole I made for dinner. Then I mopped the floor and sat outside for a bit(not long, it was a little cool) while the casserole baked.

The casserole(Shari, it was the crack chicken casserole recipe you shared) was actually good. The lawn care people came right before dinner and my yard looks so much better. Weather permitting, Easter decorating starts tomorrow.
Umbrella Academy S1E1 "We Only See Each Other at Weddings and Funerals"

I'm loving this. I can't decide if I like Klaus or Diego better, but I think it's Klaus. And I have to love any show that uses "I Think We're Alone Now" and "Istanbul."
The Flash S5E16 "Failure Is an Orphan"

This wasn't a bad ep at all. And it's so good to have Joe back.
The Flash S5E15 "King Shark vs. Gorilla Grodd"

The best thing I can say about this is that at least Joe was back. Do not like the shark or the gorilla.

And we actually watched this a while back, I'm just way behind.

Today's good thing: well, it went better than yesterday.

I had a pretty calm day, but I did finally have to go to personnel to work on my SWAS plan, because it was way too peopley in my department.

Today's good thing: it was NOT work. It started off well enough, but OMG, there were so many ignorant people in there today! I hear old people complain a lot about how young people have manners. Let me tell you, they don't, either! No "excuse me" ever, whether they're invading your personal space, or nearly run over you in their carts. How were you people raised? If you need to get where I am, and you always do, say, "Excuse me," or, "Could I get right there?" Don't get all up my ass and not say a word.

This got longCollapse )

Today's good thing: work was super busy, but not bad. I'm almost caught up. Go me!

Everyone needs to stop trying to kill Tobias!

Aww! Jefferson thinking of little Jen!

Today's good thing: I'm still hopelessly behind, but work really wasn't bad today.
11th-Mar-2019 06:23 pm - Today's good thing
Today's good thing: work wasn't super horrible, considering the usual Monday WM fuckery was going strong.

Now it's raining and I want to go to bed.
10th-Mar-2019 07:55 pm - Today's good thing
Today's good thing: wow, did we sleep late! I slept so late Fitz came to see if we were still alive, and to gently encourage me to get up and feed him. But here's the real miracle: Squeaky and Jem were asleep between us side by side, and Squeaky wasn't trying to kill Jem.

Anyway, it was around 10:30 when I got up,and close to 12 when J got up. After an actual lunch instead of a late breakfast(but don't get excited, I haven't gotten groceries yet, so J had bacon and egg sandwiches and I had bacon and tomato), we got the garbage ready for pickup, unpacked all our P2B stuff, and while J worked on his computer(and appropriated a rectangular table I bought to set it on), I sat outside on this beautiful day. My flowers are blooming, it was warm... I love spring.

I did get a bad sunburn on the side and back of my neck. We wore caps, so our faces(and J's scalp) didn't burn, and we used sun block Friday, but forgot yesterday. J's sunburn is a perfect v on his chest where his shirt was open.

I don't know if I can choose the favorite thing I bought yesterday. I got both the Christmas bags, the wipe container and the straw basket full of Christmas ornaments(some the old fashioned satin ball type, some quilted, some wood) for $2, because the woman was ready to go home. I got a case of vegetable and fruit sculpting utensils, and I have no idea what for, except that the price was too good to pass up. J actually found them. I had passed them by thinking they were regular tools. I also got a Vera Bradley purse for $1. Yes, I do have enough purse, actually. J was looking for dvds and games, and he found plenty of both.

My biggest regret was an old, old book of photos, but the guy wanted too much. I just hate the idea of someone's family photos being out there, and feel sort of protective of them, if that makes any sense. J's regret was an XBox 60 for $60 that he didn't get.

Dinner was super easy, BTW: leftover Captain Joe's, and I made cheese grits and fries to go with it.

Today's good thing: we had an awesome day at Peaches to Beaches! We headed to The Site Formerly Known as the Ball Field(it was at Woody Folsom this year, but I keep calling it the ball field, and when J complained, I gave it the Prince treatment). There seemed to be fewer sellers there this year, but we still found a good bit.

Then we went to Hardee's to get J some breakfast. There were so many people there! We waited to order, then, I kid you not, we waited about 20 minutes on one measley sausage egg biscuit. Meanwhile, Hardee's was running out of breakfast food, and they kept many people who wanted breakfast waiting while they finished the orders they had. Clearly they did not prepare adequately for P2B. Anyway, on the bright side, I got to see my cousin Debra and former Husqvarna co-worker Donna.

Then we headed toward Jesup. We didn't make it all the way there, but we were close. We saw my current co-worker Allen in Surrency. Also, no offense to my Surrency or Odom peeps, but... why does it stink over that way? I know there were septic issues at the Surrency P2B site, but it really smelled bad in both towns this time. Paper plant, maybe?

We called it quits around 4. J, who hardly ever requests a certain place for dinner, wanted Captain Joe's, so that's where we ate. It was delicious as always. I had the seafood platter(and brought most of it home, because, awesome salad bar!) and J had salmon and oysters.

We finally made it home and unloaded then crashed.

Even more good news, Fitz is feeling much better, thank goodness.

Today's good thing: it was quite a day and did not quite go as planned. J's appointment took almost literally forever.

Then we had to take Fitz to the vet to be checked. He threw up twice this morning. He seemed to be cold - - very unusual for him, he won't sleep with us when we have the electric blanket on, but he kept laying right in front of the heater. He seemed listless and seemed to be in pain. They checked him, but his temp was normal, and his incision was fine. They said it was possible he was just depressed because of being neutered. He was the alpha cat - - Jem is a big sweetie, but Fitz likes to be in charge. Since we got back, he seems to be doing better and is keeping his food down. His mama just panicked.

Anyway, it ended up being nearly 12 before we headed to my uncle's/Peaches to Beaches. We just got home around 7:30. Sadly, we didn't get to see Shari or Lottie, but we did see my mother and father in law at one of the yard sale sites.

Today's good thing: first, the babies are much better. No throwing up, and they're eating, peeing and pooping. I was worried I was going to have to at least call, if not take them back to the vet today. They mostly slept today. Wish me luck getting their pills down tonight. Fitz did his last night with no problem, but I didn't think I would ever get Jem to swallow his.

And I don't who was praying or sending good thoughts about the car, but God bless you. It was fixed *fingers crossed* for under $100. Some water pump-related belt broke(I think?) and had to be replaced.

I did more laundry today, and still don't think I'll ever get caught up. Also, you know I'm usually late to all the tv shows. Well, I started watching Bosch today and I really like it. I've always like Titus Welliver. He's one of those really good character actors. Also, I didn't recognize Mark Derwin at first, even though I watched him many times as Mallet on GL and Ben on OLTL. Alan Rosenberg is playing some sort of forensic guy and Scott Wilson(*sob*) was in the first ep, looking just like when he played Hershel.

Today's good thing: it was a super busy day. I took J to work, then at 8 I rounded up Fitz and Jem and stuffed them into their carriers and dropped them off at the vet's to be fixed. Am I going to cry every time I take a cat there Even if they're not sick? Am I having a flashback to when Squeaky was sick?

After I calmed down, I picked up a very unsatisfying breakfast from Krystal, and came home. Squeaky was confused. She loved having me all to herself, but she kept walking around whining, looking for the boys. When I finally got done with the cleaning and laundry, we sat down for a nap and she napped in my arms, something she hasn't done in a while.

I picked J back up and we got the boys. They were still very woozy and out of it. I left J looking after them until I went to Walmart for puppy pads and shredded paper for their litter box. They told use not to use regular litter for about a week, because their incisions are open and the regular litter could become embedded. Fitz had peed on the floor before I left, and he puked while I was gone. They were hungry after not eating since 12 last night and probably ate too much and too fast.

Fitz threw up again later, but Jem hasn't. They're still very sleepy(and I gave them their pain pill, too) and have been restless, going from my lap to J's, to all the cat beds, to the other chair and back again. We're probably going to put them in the big cage together for tonight, so they're not climbing and possibly re-injuring themselves. I'm probably overreacting, but I may stay home with them tomorrow. I don't want to leave them alone all day.

This was sort of meh for me, mostly because, no Tobias.

Always nice to see Lala.

Damn, Odell is cold blooded!

Today's good thing: I'll have to say it's a tie between doing a mod with Selina(we used to have so much fun working together in pharmacy!) and seeing Ms Betty today.

Today's bad thing, however, is that J's car is in the shop. He started to work this morning, I started getting dressed for work, and he called me say he was nearly to Lumber City and having car trouble. He started back here and I rushed to get dressed so I could take him to work. Of course it was pouring rain. I got him to work only 5 minutes late. I came back here and finished getting ready for work myself. He found a garage and I picked him up from work and we came here, got the car and dropped it off. We know there's a broken belt and a burst water hose, but we don't know what else. They're supped to call tomorrow of they get a chance to look at it.

I have spoken before about the maze-like pick up and drop off at J's work. But it is even worse if you don't get there before work lets out if you're picking up. These geniuses have the pick up/drop off entrance located between the lane where you come in and all the people leaving work. It took me about 10 minutes t get into the pick up lot and I nearly got hit. I was shaking by the time I parked. Also, Husqvarna people who were leaving work, you all need to repent and learn some manners!

I can't help but think I should have expected the car trouble. I've noticed if I get too happy, or too comfortable, and stop worrying, something bad is bound to happen. Please send good thoughts this doesn't cost a lot.

Today's good thing: well, there are few good Mondays at Walmart, and that was very true today. I had stuff that was binned over the weekend that would've filled outs on the floor. Same with my cart of "overstock." It went out, and some were outs on the shelf. When I got to the floor, things were stocked wrong, and stuff was put on top stock that didn't even go in that area. I can appreciate that it's hard to stock all that in a certain amount of time, but it's like they're not even trying. in other news, winter is apparently back for a few days.

Today's good thing: I got up around 8:30, fed the babies and did my reading, then finished watching Hereditary. Then a took a short nap before starting breakfast.

After that(and it was late), J and I did laundry, dishes, and got the garbage ready for pickup. I sat outside for a bit, and it kept getting darker and cooler, and right after I came in, the tornado watches and warnings started. So far, so good.

Today's good thing: slept late today, later than J, but then, he went to bed way earlier than me last night. I stayed up finishing this season of True Detective. It was as good as the first season, and way, way better than the second. Mahershala Ali and Stephen Dorff were amazing.

I didn't actually sleep much after J got up, as the cats were back and forth, trampling me. I finally got up and J started breakfast while I did dishes. I also started a load of laundry.

I intended to do a lot more, like get outside and paint flower pots. But after we ate(which was closer to lunch time than breakfast time), J went back to bed with a headache(this pollen is really getting to him), and I put Hereditary in the dvd player. About 45 minutes in, I started to fall asleep. This is no reflection on the movie, which is actually pretty good. I was going to have a 15 minute nap(which turned into a 45 minute nap), then do more laundry.

I did eventually do more laundry and make dinner while J valiantly made a Walmart run.

Since then, we've watched tv, did more laundry and dishes, surfed the 'net(me) and played a game(J).

Today's good thing: work was actually sort of awesome again, despite it being check day.

Today's good thing: dare I say today was an awesome day at work?
