The Walmart World may not have been updated online but is still available in paper. Don't they leave copies in your break room?

The company is still making a profit. Not as high as they wanted to because people are not spending that much money anymore. A lot of retailers are closing their doors (or some of them) because they did not have the sales they needed, especially at Christmas.

You should read the news they have in the financial section or go to walmartstores.com where you can get all that information too. The layoffs will be in realty, benefits and clothing at the home office. It has a lot to do with them not building that many new stores as they have in the past.

Kimmie,
thank you. You got the months mixed up. My surgery will be the beginning of May. I will also miss inventory this year. All I can do is to prepare as much as possible and hope for the best.

This has been a long struggle, where I did real well the first couple of years and then slowly ended up gaining most of the weight back.

Bienke,Thank you. No me and the boys didn't go for a walk. We got some movies in from netflix and they wanted to watch speed racer. And all of a sudden it got really cold out. But friday I can drive so no matter what the weather is like I am going to the YMCA and getting on the tread mill.

I will keep you in my thoughts in march for your sugery. I go back to work March 19th. Day after Inventory How lucky am I. The girl they have covering for me wants me back now.

Every thing will be okay and take it easy you deserve it.

Hi all, My week starts tonight at 10 pm. Since my days and nights are messed up I guess I will be taking some NOS energy drink to work with me-lol. Hope everyone's week is going well. Remember the water (I will try, try, try...). Hope everyone is feeling better and Have a good rest of the week. By the way I was on the walmart benefits site and have any of you noticed that Wal-Mart World has not had a new issue since July 2008? What is up with that? No info on the layoffs in Bentonville. How we are doing financially as a whole Does anyone have any news? I am feeling like a mushroom!

Kimmie, it's good to hear that you are doing better. Don't worry about running the sweeper, you get to do that soon enough. I hope that your boys decided to go on a walk with you.

Bubbles, I hope that you are feeling well soon too.

I can't even go on walks for now. By the time I come home from work, my legs are hurting so much that all I want to do is put them up and relax. I am going to have my knee replaced in May. I am feeling better since I have a date now.

Take care,

I know how you feel. Just getting better from my surgery I don't feel like doing anything either. First thing is to get better and then get back on the horse. It is a great day so after my boys get home from school I am going to see if they want to go for a walk with mommie. Since that is all I can do. I am not even allowed to run the sweeper. I hate this but I don't want to go though that surgery again. So I have to be a good girl. lol
Well hope you feel better.

I tracked my food intake most of the week and didn't do all that great. No exercise here, it hurts too much when I do.

I saw the doctor on Monday and he was satisfied with my artificial knee but called the other one "terrible". I will have my knee replacement surgery on that one on May 5.

On Wednesday we celebrated my birthday and our 37th wedding anniversary. We both had taken the day off and enjoyed it a lot.

The rest of the week I had to hussle to finish 2 mods and a couple of friends helped me some yesterday and today. I am pooped now and am looking forward to my weekend.

We don't have any plans for V-day because we don't believe in these commercial holdidays. Love should be shown 365 days a year and I think we do.

I didn't do so hot this last week with watching what I'm eating. And excercise... what's that??
Work was ok- it seems I'm forever there, but can never get everything I want to do done. I have a 3-day weekend I'm on now, though. Today is my 3rd wedding anniversary tomorrow is V-day, so tonight my and hubby are going out for a movie and dinner. We can't decide on a movie though, so I think one of us will pick the movie while the other decides where to eat that way we are both happy!

Well most of you know I just had surgery last week. Well I am doing really great and getting back in the swing of things. I got on the scale yesterday and whoo hoo I lost weight. Was not trying cause of the liquid diet I was on for a couple of days. Might gain it back now that I am on solids and I don't care. I know why. But I am drinking plenty of water and I did walk one day for 2 miles this week going to try to do some walking 3 times instead of 1 day.
thanks everyone.
