Big, big, big plans for tomorrow! First, get up at 4:00 (yes, that's AM) to work out before coming home to shower and dress for work. Go to work and kick butt until 10:30. Fly back home/DS's school to watch his choir performance. (Side note: I would like to have magical powers JUST for the teleportation. Do you know how much time I could save every day if I could just pop in and out of the places I needed to go?)
After the choir performance, hoof it back to work to continue the a$$ kicking job that I do. No time to take names! LOL! Leave at 4:30 to get to my hair appointment. Leave there more beautiful than ever (yes, I AM humble. Thank you for noticing!) and head home. Very likely will need to make dinner cos DH won't. He might get DD to do it. Tacos, not too hard! LOL!
Oh, and I'm getting some lunch during the flying and hoofing to and from DS's concert. He told me tonight that he has to dance and sing to "old person" music. Yes, I recognized the song! LOL!
On that note, I need some sleep. Nite y'all!

Okay, not really one place, but one company. I started at "my" company seventeen years ago today. I worked nights (7pm to 7am) and weekends and I was pretty happy to do it! I had more regular hours, having just come from fast food, better pay (again, fast food!) and less responsibility. Win, win, win!
I stayed on nights for two years. One of those years, I was a trainer. Let me tell you, I have a great respect for trainers/teachers. I did the job for a year and hated it! I do not have the patience to teach the same thing over and over and over again. Different people, but the subject matter didn't change. After two years, I went to days and have worked days ever since.
Lots of jobs, bosses and areas but all still ini the same department. I really like my job and my company. Except for DH (we've been married almost 20 years), my company has been in my life longer than most everything else. Kids came after. My house came after. Even my dogs came after! LOL!
Here's to 17 more years...and then 20 more after that. Then I'll be ready to retire! LOL!

Here is an example of a stem and leaf plot.
1| 2, 3, 3, 4
2| 0, 4
3| 1, 1, 2, 6, 7, 8, 9
4| 9, 9, 9
The numbers are 12, 13, 13, 14, 20, 24...anyway, you get the idea. I'm not completely sure why anyone would want to want to ever use one of these, but apparently you have to know what they are if you want to pass 5th grade math. Ooops...it's 6th grade math. DS was placed into the more advanced math for his class. Of course, you have to hand in your homework to pass.
Aren't you glad you asked?

I mentioned earlier that I went to the library and picked out three workout DVD's. Tried the Urban Beat one and that was so not good. Today I decided to try the Power 90 Interval Cardio. I think it's part of the P90X, but I'm not sure. I think it said P90X behind the "uber" models, but the sweat was flowing into my eyes so freely that I couldn't be sure what it said.
The workout consisted of a fairly long warm-up (and an equally long cool-down) and eleven different exercises. Each exercise was done for one minute, 20 seconds at a different level (easy, medium, hard) and then repeat the whole thing again. I like that there were modifications for every exercise and that you only had to do each one for 20 seconds. I could do anything for 20 seconds...well, most anything! LOL! The time flew by. I think I will be sore tomorrow...hopefully I can still walk tho.
Today was a combination of busy and sloth. The morning and early afternoon were sloth...my favorite part! LOL! I ate the breakfast that DH made for me and read the paper and watched TV. Then, I decided I need to be productive. I started some auctions, burned some old papers, made potato soup, tried a new "wings" recipe (made with legs, tho!) and made lasagna for supper.
And in that time, walked down to the video place that was going out of business twice. Once to buy the girl a video game. The second time to buy me "The Biggest Loser" for the Wii. Woo Hoo!!!! Is any one else this excited about finding new ways to get their butt kicked?
After dinner, I walked to the Chevron for dessert (didn't have any!) and then did the Power 90 workout. Fixed my lunch for tomorrow and am now Sparking. Gotta finish my book too. I only have about 11 pages left. Finish that and move on to the next book in the pile. I have about 10 books awaiting my attention. I'd better get crackin'!!
