Blogging Late!

Friday, November 11, 2011

Good evening. I just got home from work a half hour ago and what a very long day it was. We are open later now for Christmas, every night. YIkes!

The last hour and a half were very quiet and we managed to get some extra work down but not a lot of it. The store is still a mess but what do you expect when your truck comes in and you have all this stock that need to be put away and you also need to help the customers.

We also had three new people start work today, of all days and I was left alone for a change.

I put some new stock away and then was told to help clean up the store so I did.

I am still not getting enough hours, in fact my hours were cut again. I now am working only 14.5 hours next week. Not enough to live on.

All the other newbies are in the same boat, 14 - 16 hours each. Not fair.

So as of today I have decided to look for another job. Enough of them not giving me more hours or training me properly. Enough of them lecturing me every five minutes.

People I am not a door mat to be walked all over and thrown away.

I will still work for these people until something else comes along and then they will miss me.

I work hard, I am friendly, helpful and cheerful to work with. Their loss not mine.

I hope that I do get more hours and this is just a blip. I like working for them and I am enjoying it most of the time.

So please pray for me that I either get a new job or I get more hours. Either one I will be happy.

In the mean time I am still looking for work and trying to fine more knitting orders.

So don't mind me I am just tired and a little upset. I will get over it.

I'm not due back to work until next Tuesday and Thursday next week. So I have lots of free time now to search, to knit it up, to work out, to clean up, and other things.

I am not going to get depressed over this, it is not worth it. I will keep being positive.

Any ways I am heading to bed now.

Wishing you all a good night.

    I said it once already, but your work place has a management problem and should be interviewing for new managers. Hiring more people when they can't give them more hours than that seems crazy!

Hang in there, hope you find a better job with kinder, respectful, more professional people.

    It doesn't seem fair that they are hiring more people and not
boosting the staff they already have. Just keep looking for
another job while you are still working. At least now you have
experience. I sure hope they will give you more hours and
that they real;ise what a good worker they have.
Have a great weekend. Praying for you. emoticon emoticon

    That is sumply unreal!! And rather stupid. They are hiring more people in the middle of their busy season they have to train and they can't give the people the have already hired and trained more hours to cover the extra need??? Who ever is running that business is an idiot!! So very sorry you have to deal with people like that. I always wonder why it seems the worst people get to be the bosses :((
I wish you luck in finding soemthing better, but its a disappointment that this job was right up your alley of knowledge and interest and its not often you get to work at something you enjoy :((
Hope you get a good sleep and rest in,

Recycling Day!

Thursday, November 10, 2011

Finally, today is our recycling day and we have tons of bottles, cans and plastics to hand in and I am hoping to get at least 80.00$ today.

We actually did $71.50 which is pretty good and rewarding. Our landfills gets so full of things that we should be recycling and we don't so I have been trying for the last three years to do better.

Are we getting there? I think so. Yes we are and we will continue to do better as we learn what can be and what can't be recyclable.

After recycling we went up to Safeway's and bought some can soups that I can take to work and heat up in the microwave to save money.

I still am not getting the hours that I was told I was going to get. I hope when I go in tomorrow afternoon I find that I will be getting more now that we are open later for shopping. Yikes.

So I bought 10 cans of different kinds of noodle soups and stews with the pop up lids so I don't have to worry about a can opener. I also bought some package cracker, the one hundred calorie kind for my coffee break. I still need to figure out more stuff to bring to work but for now this is a great start.

Instead of working 1:30pm to 9:30pm I will be working from 2:30pm to 10:30pm and getting home at around 11:15pm unless John picks me up and I can be home by 10:45pm

We shall see and I will report back to you all.

After grocery shopping we came back home I sparked for a bit and then spent a few hours knitting it up. I worked on the alligator tonight and it is looking great and coming alone faster than I thought I would do. I still haven't picked up the Ginger Bread house to finish I just can't make up my mind on the finishings. How I am going to decorate the house. So until I do make up my mind I will work on the little gators and the sweaters.

One great thing that happened to me this morning and I almost forgot to mention it tonight is that I got on the scale and I was down two pounds. Hooray. finally. I am well within the last three pounds that I need to lose. I broke the platue and I hope to stay off it for a while.

Being three pounds away from my goal weight that I got down to last year at this time is great. It means that I was able to keep my weight down for almost a year.

I have never ever done that before and it make me so excited to know that I can do it. So can you guys and gals.

Sure I gain five pounds again, took it off, gained it back and so on but I know I am working hard at keeping my weight to wear it should be and so is my doctor.

So I know I am doing the right things most of the time, now it is to work on the consistency of getting in my workouts and eating within my calories for that day.

So that was my day, my afternoon and evening and now it is time to relax with a cup of tea, watch a bit of TV and go to bed.

Good night my wonderful friends and sparkers.

    CONGRATULATIONS on kickin' those two pounds and being back so close to your goal!! You have done a great job!! Watch the sodium in those canned soups. The doctor's have restricted my sodium and canned foods were the first to go. Hope you can keep some fresh fruits and veggies. Maybe you can take some leftovers from your dinners to work for you lunch the next day or make a pot of fresh veggie soup..store in individual servings. It makes it easier to grab and go because your lunch will be ready for you. You are an AWESOME cook so I know you can do this.
May you have a night of restful sleep and sweet dreams before you start your Terrific Thursday!

Well done! Glad you have lost finally! Just keep in mind eating processed foods like canned stuff has high sodium and can lead to water retention. Make sure you can get your water in! When I take my lunch to the club, it is fresh veggies, with yogurt as a dip. I make up a whole wheat mini bagel with a little honey and natural almond butter for protein. If Mom has given me some of her healthy muffins, I will take one of those. Its better for the landfill if people made their own big batches of soups, etc, and then freeze it in indivdual servings in reusable containers. I am lucky my Mom does this for me as I don't cook. She makes me borscht, roasted root veggies and chili, and lasagne, just great to have once in a while. Also, fruit like oranges and bananas and apples are easy to carry and don't have to be in the fridge.
I hope you get more hours -you should really with X mas coming up, might even get too many when it gets to be a real zoo..
Sweet dreams!!

My Monday!

Tuesday, November 08, 2011

Well today was another day off for me. Yahoo! I needed it! I had lots to do.

I needed to get the order out to FedEx, go to the bank and deposit a check, pick up some stuff and then finish cleaning my place and do some more knitting.

Unfortuantly is was pouring hard outside and with no car I couldn't get to Fed Ex. John was called into work on his day off. So no banking and no shopping but I did get more housework done and lots more knitting done.

So tomorrow before I go into work John will take me to Fed Ex to drop on the order and then drive me to work. I will go to the bank the next day and finish up my shopping then. I need some stuff for lunches. Something quick and healthy to have a work.

The rest of the day like I said was spent on my knitting. I am trying to finish up my UFO's. My unfinished Objects. Tonight I spent three hours on one of the two alligators that I am making and it is knitting up well but slowly cause I am using three double pointed knitting needles and knitting in the rounds. Tricky to do but it is so nice not to have a seam down the center back.

I have put aside the Ginger Bread House until Friday. I need some time away from it cause I keep changing my mind. So I think a couple of days away from it will give me a better idea on how I want it to look when it is finished.

The Santa and Mrs. Clause just needs to be stuffed and the arms sewn on then put on the dress and hair for the Mrs. Santa needs arms sewn on and his jacket skirt sew on, plus his beard and hat. Not bad at all.

I am very happy with my knitting and crocheting and I am taking many break to rest my fingers and arms. Plus I am getting up every hour to walk around and to stretch so I did great today. I also walked for 60 minutes inside the house today.

Awesome day off.

I can't wait to see your finished product! I have never seen anyone using three needles before and there are a number of ladies who are constantly knitting it up here..
Shame about the rain (but its still better than icy streets and snow). I have had to ask for rides to the club as I nearly slipped and fell four times trying to get there. Very frustrating as I love my walking. Its sunny, but too cold to melt much :(

My busy Sunday!

Sunday, November 06, 2011

I really wanted to rest today and get caught up with all my UFO projects( unfinished orders) but my place was a mess and I needed to do a good clean of it.

So that is exactly what we did once John woke up and got moving.

I cleaned and washed all the dishes, pots and pans for the last day and half. Totally cleaned out the fridge and threw away all the leftovers since I couldn't trust my memory on when I made the stuff. I had forgotten to write down the date the I put the left overs is the fridge and since John and I are both getting over colds we weren't taking any chances. Now my fridge is clean and and almost empty. Will have to go and get a few thing like eggs and more milk.

We are trying to eat what is in our kitchen first before we go out and waste money on stuff we really don't need right now. Money is very tight for both of us ever since we had both vehicles repaired. That money was going to go to fixing up our apartment but now we will have to start saving again.

So for this month and next we aren't eating out and I am not going to buy my lunch or dinner when I go to work I will bring in my own food to eat. Healthier and cost savings that way. Beside they have a fridge, microwave, toaster and a kettle at work so bringing in a lunch/dinner won't be to challenging.

I am also curbing my knitting expense and only going to use up the yarn that I have in my place unless I have a special customer order and have to go and buy the stuff I need.

I finally finished the last order for the O'bert dolls and pals, they are all packed and ready for Fed Ex tomorrow. Then I will get paid for this order. Can't wait I need that money.

After cleaning the kitchen and bathroom I made a very healthy Roast Beef, roast potatoes with french green beans and a very lite gravy. Calories came out low and tasted really good. John and I both like the meal.

My anniversary and birthday is coming up very quickly and I wanted my last five pounds to be gone but unfortunately that won't happen I might be a pound or two away from my goal. I am still very proud of my weight loss and all the exercising that I have done this last year. I really really wanted to say that I have kept all my weight off for an entire year but I have to be please that I will only be up two pounds so that in itself is a great feat.

I am going tell myself that the two pounds is muscle gain and not fat because I can see my muscle in my arms and not the flapping fat that I had which is hereditary but I am fighting it.

Also instead of being in a size two I am in a size four which is still a great size for me with my very thin frame.

So I know you all will tell me that a size four is a great size to be in and your right it is. I don't need to be any smaller, just more fitter. I need to work on getting strength in my legs. kneeling down and standing up all day long will have me gain the strength that I need and will also work on tightening up my jiggly legs. The last part of my body that really needs the work the most.

Even with all the walking I do everyday at home and at work it is not enough so today I did a great 20 minute legs of steel work out, tomorrow will be arms of steel, the next day is work and I will be doing lot of unpacking and putting away stock so I don't need to do a workout I will get an 8 hour workout then. Same for Thursday. The rest of the week I am off so I will be doing my work out in side my place and finishing up my Ginger Bread House, Santa and Mrs. Clause and the two snow kids.

The house is coming along slowly cause I keep changing my mind on how I want it to look like. I just need to stick with my first idea not not change it any more.

Well it is time for me to go and have my shower and relax in bed reading for a bit.

I hope you and pray that you all had a sparkling Sunday and that Monday is a great one for you.

I will keep you all updated on my progress.

Good night and sweet dreams. I am now closing down Sandraland for the night.

Insomnia stricks but work went well!

Saturday, November 05, 2011

Well as my title stated I was hit with insomnia last night. I only had two and a half hours of sleep. Ugh!

I still can't shut down my mind playing over the last couple of days at work. I knew I had to go over it completely in my minds to solve my problems and worries so I did that and felt better.

I dressed in my new beigh cotton work shirt, black pant and my normal walking shoes, had oatmeat and coffee for breakfast and headed out the door.

Like I said last night John drove me to work and it only took us ten minutes to get there and I got there ten minutes early. Just in time for the morning meeting and to open the store.

The assistant manager headed the short five minute meeting and was a bit stressed out and told everyone. That's cool, we got the heads up.

After taking all the bins outside (brrr it's cold without a jacket on). I got my headphone and radio, then the assistant manager came to me and gave me a job to do.
emoticon

All she wanted me to do was to finish putting away the new stock that came in yesterday and clean up the jewerly area, as well as helpling the customers and answering any calls that needed.

So I kept my head down and worked on putting the stock on the shelves and cleaning up the 3 rows of beads, findings and other stuff away.

Things went great until one girl started nip picking at me. I responded back with honey and she didn't like that one bit. That's OK, she is 6 month pregnant and in a nasty mood. So I let her be. Nothing to do with me at all.

I got a lot of help with some of the girls that I like and liked me back. We all pitched in and helped each other and left the management team do their own thing. It is way better than that.

After work, John drove me home and I got changed and put the kettle on for a cup of coffee that I so needed. Boy was that second cup ever good. Then I put a pizza in the oven to heat up. Had one serving of the Hawiian and that was it. I didn't need any more than two small pieces and a tall glass of water. I am still parched so I am drinking another cup.

I get so thirsty at work and it is very hard to drink water there when they won't allow to have your water on the floor except when you're at cash and can hid it. So every once in a while I would sneak in the lunch room drink some water and then head quickly to my spot.

I know that is why my weight hasn't gone down. I am dyhydrated and I am not drinking enough water. So I have to come up with a way to drink more at work. It is not enough to drink more at lunch or on my coffee break I need to spread it through the entire work day.

We are allowed to eat small candies but not allowed to chew gum of course, so my mouth gets very dry and beside I don't need the extra calories. So I am thinking of buying TICTACS and chewing on them.

I would gladly accept any ideas.

I am also taking my lunch to work instead of treating myself to Mc. Donalds or Tim Hortons. Need to save more money.

We took in the truck last week and had to pay over 2,500.00 for repairs and the week before was 2,200.00 to fix the car. Yikes both of our accounts are dried up now but thankfully we have both cars working good.

I so wished that I drive but I don't. Soon we will only be using the truck to go every where in because it is four wheel drive and John can get up and down the mountains where he works. The car we need for when we take mom out shopping, she can't climb into the truck because of her hip and how short she is beside the back seat is to tight for me.

Any ways I have the next two days of from work I still didn't get any extra hours but I am on call in case someone calls in sick.

So that is good and I can take this time to really clean and organized my knitting area and office, clean the kitchen stove and fridge ( a job I truly despised but has to get done). Plus there is laundry and recycling to do this week too as well as continue to knit it up.

I still need to finish the Ginger Bread House, the two alligators. Santa and Mrs. Clause, two snowboys and girls.

Will post finished pictures for sure.

Well that is all, it is now time for my bath and then finish up with some knitting before I go a get some sleep.

Have a great night.

    Pregnant ladies tend to be a bit emotional. So glad that you didn't take it personally. She probably forgot it within five minutes. So glad that your day actually went well. Hope you were able to get some restful sleep last night and are no longer worrying about all that happened the last few day. You know you are doing a great job!!!
Hugs,
Helen

    My mind travels and worries when I lay my head down also. Things will get better at work they always do and your always going to have someone to put a damper on your day. Just smILe and keep going. Nothing else to do. Have a great Sunday.

    Well done not rising to the bait of the snippy pregnant woman -just hormones there. So glad you are getting help and support from your fellow workers.. That sucks you can't have water with you except behind the till :(( I sorry I have nothing to suggest :( It would drive me batty not to get my water in as that is all I drink. Maybe you could drink more water before you go to work. I always hydrate well in the mornings, lasts longer. I keep trying to tell Mom that, but all she wants is her coffee in the morning and then she wonders why she is so thirsty later on..
Hope you can get a better sleep this time, at least get a sleep in. Enjoy your two days off and getting caught up with your knitting -can't wait to see those photos!!

    Oh, I'm so glad you made it through this day successfully! Good for you not letting other people's stress get you down!

When I'm working at United Supermarket, I keep "Ice Breakers" in my pocket because they're sugar free and I love them!

I have to get to bed... but I wanted to tell you hurray about your good day! emoticon

Oh, and I hope you sleep well tonight! emoticon

    Thinking things through at night always keeps me awake too.

It sounds like you're handling the work situation well and I think you're perfectly right to realize that a lot of the stress there has nothing to do with you ... people have lots of personal problems that we know nothing about and that can really affect their mood.
