So .. I have named my Spark Tracker Sam .. (Sam Elliot) .. that deep voice can carry me miles away from troubles and worries ..lol
Well it appears "Sam" is a little miffed with me .. when I got home from work I took a half mile walk with my dogs to the end of the quarter and back .. and then put supper on and immediately tuned into my Tracker program to see my progress .. it was looking pretty good .. then while reading about more features of this little gadget I discovered it could be set to Saskatchewan time .. ( we truly are the only place on earth that doesn't change it's time !!...for real .. not fooling )
so I changed the time on "Sam" then went and did a 10 minute T-Zone workout .. run back to my computer to check my progress .. it didn't record it because I had already logged in that hour previously .. (because of the time difference) .. so I changed it back desperately looking for my workout .. poop .. it was gone
So this morning I'm going to set it to Saskatchewan time and leave it there ..
Silly me ...
My Wednesday was fantastic .. have all of the office furniture ordered now .. will use the desks I had for my husband and my son and will set up their offices today
the reception area is ordered as well as two new desks for my daughter and myself .. she and I will share a very big office just off of the reception area.
The wooden blinds are ordered.
The kitchen appliances are ordered. Kitchen and Conference room are together, safety training and staff meetings will be held there
plus I will be able to cook for all of our guests at Christmas Party time
The laundry area is being planned just need to buy some upper and lower cupboards for that room plus create an area to hang the coveralls after they have been cleaned.
The new shop is coming together nicely now and we should be working out of there Tuesday or Wednesday .. phone connected Tuesday and my computer guru will network all the computers Wednesday
So once again lots of step will be tracked as we get closer to moving out of the rig shack we are using for an office
Once we move out a couple of our employees will move in.. our area of the province is very busy in the oil industry so we have employees from British Columbia , New Brunswick , and Ontario.
With the rental rate sky high we are doing what we can to provide a roof over their heads at a rate they can afford,( as an example $900.00 a month .. gets you a bedroom , use of common kitchen area and shared bathroom .. robbery )
Then again a lot of the huge fracking companies pay their employees $200.00 day living allowance so have set up camps made up of several rig shacks like ours that provide room and board in turn for $200.00 a day !!
I am so thankful we live an hour away from where we work .. I know the drive in the fog and storms gets white knuckley sometimes but the peace of the country is well worth it !!
Happy Halloween dear Spark friends .. I am staying in the city tonight sleeping at the office so I can be a part of my two youngest grandchildren trick or treat evening.. I'm going to take my Roxy dog .. she will be my companion for the night since momma bear isn't a fan of the dark .. Roxy and I will lock the gates of the yard and she will sleep and I probably will lay awake all night !! Hopefully not I have payroll early Friday morning .. then an eye exam!
Happy Trick or Treat Day dear friend .. Happy Sparking from Sam and I
