March In Like A Lion

Tuesday, March 01, 2011

Ok, maybe not weather wise...but work wise, which means physical wise. My goals for March, on top of my already daily goals was to get some more me time and more exercise... and then...i work a straight 14 hour day with no lunch break. This lead to less exercise and more eating....whoa!!! wrong way for the rest of the week, i will be taking a break...i will still have to work 14 hours...but i am going to take a break!!!

So yesterday, we started out the day with thunderstorms... lots and lots of rain...and with the melting snow...floods enough to close some roads. Now let me begin by setting the scene. The end of the month is always our busiest time. More customers to service with a lot more freight than normal. Now start this day with a storm and flooding. A couple drivers called off, then one of other local terminals flooded and had to move their operations to our terminal. We are barely big enough for our own stuff, now we are putting a terminal that normally does twice the stuff we do into it. So the phones are going crazy, people are coming in that I have to greet...and my son calls. He overslept and did not go to school and he went to make lunch...and no water...NO WATER... look outside, we have plenty of water...he said no, no water is coming out of the facets. So i give him the phone number to the landlord so he can call....with a 5 minute discussion on why he has to call and i can't...all while picking up the other calls and greeting people coming in...i do get to go to lunch, where i went to walmart to pick up some fruits and veggies...then back to craziness. Son texts me to say landlord didn't answer but he left a message. I then text landlord to see if he got the voicemail. Finally I get to leave work and 1/2 hour over when i was suppose to leave. they wanted me to come back, but there was just no way. Landlord finally answered and came over to find the basement totally flooded and the pump along with the electric to it submerged in water. It's going to be sometime tomorrow (which is today) to be able to fix it....Thank God i bought some at walmart yesterday.

Luckily today, the other terminal moved back home, though not until later in the day, and the one night girl is off...the combo being why i worked 14 hrs today. Also our water is up and running freely again...wohoo!!! and to top it all son not only made dinner, but served it to me...i'm one lucky girl :)

Beautiful-The stars tonight

DYN: that my ex-terminal manager's wife is 14 weeks pregnant...(my dd2 is 12 weeks)

Laugh: at my ex-terminal manager-he loves to stir up trouble and we end up arguing like kids

Blessings-got water :)

Game-i didn't play any today :(

Bible Verse-Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: - Romans 5:1

    Wow that does sound like a crazy day. And I can' honestly say that I can relate to that. When I was working as an assistant manager at a Taco Bell, I would go in at 7 in the morning and would only be scheduled until 5 but wouldn't get out of there until 6:30 or 7 and there were times that the manager that was to come in to take over would call off at the last miunte and then would sometimes get stuck working open to close. Getting a food break there for me sometimes was next to impossible sometimes. We were to make that all the crew members got their breaks and we were last or just grab it when we could. Sometimes I would eat the food there, but a lot of days I would take yogar, or fruit and never got to eat it and it would be there for the next 2 or 3 days for me until I did get to eat

But one thing for sure, we have to learn to take time out of our busy schedule for our selves, and eat, is there a way you can maybe take some celery sticks or baby carrots and nibble on them through out the day, that would be a great way to make sure that you get a chance to eat and that its a healthy snack to.

    Yikes, That's a crazy day!!! Hope they are able to get the flood waters out of your basement!!

I should say March came in like a Lion for you guys!! Same here... just in a different form of craziness (see the blog I posted last night!). Here's hoping the rest of March is calm and goes out like a Lamb for both of us!!

ps-- that's so cool that your dd and ex- managers wife are 2 weeks apart in their pregnancy!!

you & ex- manager arguing & acting like teenagers.... I can totally imagine!! lol
