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 here...so 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 off...my 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)
