the oven

Thursday, September 05, 2013

Its been hot here all week , its terrible and I though "oh great I can go back to work and then it will be September and it will be cooler". If anything its hotter this week than last. At least its supposed to be closer to 72 F friday. (sorry too tired to translate other temps from metric (I HATE metric)).

    It's been in the 100s but this week cooler - 80s I am hoping for cooler weather also. emoticon

    I'm sick of the heat and am ready for cooler temps but we have none in sight. Freakish weather. I hope we don't go from summer to winter. I hate that!! Degrees is good for me. I don't want to translate to centigrade.

    It's okay. I understand degrees F. *I'm not a fan of metric either, but that is what we get for being American. lol

back to work tomorrow.

Monday, September 02, 2013

Yeah !! back to it tomorrow at least its sort of a short week. Thanks to Labour Day. (yes I DID spell it correctly- Noah Webster had issues). Can't decide what I am looking forward to the most the chattering IDIOTS (my co-"workers") the morons in the office, the drudgery, the boring work or just the fact that I have to put in over 8 hours at a place that stopped being fun(except for when I get to go on a trip out or elsewhere) for the most part years ago.

    I'm sorry you feel that way. I do too when I go to work but I think about the fact that I have a job and can feed my family. Helps to put things in perspective. Have a great day anyway!

Halfway through Vacation and its Time for a TEMPER TANTRUM or at least a RANT

Tuesday, August 27, 2013

Well so far I haven't really had a lot of quality time to myself. I guess I can't really whine too much I spent alot of the time on the weekend trying to get a cover letter ready for a competition I likely will not even get an interview for and part of last Thursday and Friday was spent farting around with going out for coffee with a former co-worker (I haven't decided if I should be irritated with him inferring I was an IDIOT just because I didn't read the paper or watch the news as often as he does- I mean my word THERE ARE other ways of getting information and becside maybe I am just NOT interested!!). Yesterday morning and the weekend I also spent "playing" with some IDIOT sleep monitor because my doctor WANTS to know if I have sleep apnoea ( I don't like the spelling EITHER but that's what the spell checker wants ) I know I woke up MORE wearing the stupid thing and don't you JUST HATE it when doctors want the answers to something that YOU don't really give a rip about. OH and this afternoon was JUST LOVELY I can SCARCELY put it into words went and spend 40 bucks for a new piece of waterproof panelling for the shower in the bathroom as the old wasready to bite the dust. Had it all cut out and discovered I screwed up where I put the holes so off I got to the local store (I call it ROTEM - It used to be TOTEM and then the nice fellers from Quebec went and bought them up - it was an ALBERTA chain and chenged them all to RONAS like it wasn't enough that they bought out all the REVELSTOKE STORES. I hate big box hardware stores- bring back WW ARCADE) Sorry you would have had to have grown up here or lived here to know what that last reference was about.

    I seem to never have time to accomplish what I want to no matter how hard I try.I'm sure I set my standards too high but a person should be able to have a balance between work and play and one should not totally shut down the other. If I am working I feel I should rest and when I'm resting I kow I have work piling up.

I miss the days when we have more options too. Here for every 5 good store/restaurant/business we have close we have one crappy one come in. When we get a good place they get a poor location and don't stay open.

time off

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

I finally booked some vacation time and so consequently I will be in a hopefully better frame of mind at least if I don't start worrying about work. They sure seem to pile it on the last day - it almost makes me hate to take any time off EVER.

    You can always tell the quality of a workplace by how hard they try to punish people for taking some well-deserved time off. It seems that your place of business is confirmed butthole.

verrry long week

Friday, August 16, 2013

Its been quite hot up here and consequently I have not been getting the amount or quality of sleep that I should be . I went out for supper and felt quite a bit better sadly that's just a memory. I think I will be hitting the hay earlier tonight -at least I know I do not have to get up so early tomorrow.

    I've been exhausted too and can't seem to get enough sleep. I would like to just go to bed and stay there until I feel like getting up but then Rip Van Winkle comes to mind. LOL.
